Cheat Sheets

Wouldn’t It be nice if 90% of the information required to get a pilot’s license was contained in a document just a few pages long? Tired of ambiguous study guides which don’t provide a clear definition of what to study? Well worry no more! To make life easier for you, I have made cheat sheets to guide you in the right direction. In each sheet, I have isolated the most commonly asked information on check rides in a clear and concise manner.

The aircraft specific sheets found after the sheets for the certificates and ratings provide a summary of the aircraft operating handbook, including memory items and buzz words for the aircraft’s systems. Most importantly, they also provide a complete walk-through for the performance charts and weight and balance calculations for the aircraft which includes example problems and common mistakes. These sheets are the best (and possibly only) free performance chart walk-through on the internet (based solely on my opinion of course!).

They are all completely opened source, enjoy!

    • The best estimate I can give is eventually. I currently have been preoccupied working logistics for a business I am looking to start which is eating into most of my free time. Hopefully I’ll find the time soon to get some additional information published. Thanks for your patience!

  1. Headed for my checkride in a couple weeks. I was studying information all over the place, your cheat sheet really is an awesome resource. Thanks.

  2. Thanks for the cheat sheet! Working on my instrument rating, but needed to brush up on some weather.
