Default CHIFF check

every time, before applying final power I do a CHIFF check


C canopy closed latched, controls free

H Harness secure

I Both ignitions on

F Fuel on, Fuel amount, Fuel correct tank, Boost pump on

F Flaps

This is of course not a full checklist, it is an additional final check of those things that I feel are necessary to double check and are crucial for a take off in the RVs and Rockets that I fly.

Every plane and pilot are different but some things are gotchas for plane and pilot
