101. GENERAL CHECKLIST PROCEDURES
Attention to detail is required to fly complex aircraft safely and effectively. Checklists allow the
safe and orderly operation of the aircraft and ensure everything is prepared for the next evolution
of the flight.
Most multi-place aircraft checklists are "Challenge and Response" (C & R), which, when
properly coordinated, provide for a high degree of safety. The T-1A checklists employ a slightly
different method than you may be accustomed to. For the purpose of checklist operation, the
pilot in the left seat is referred to as "Pilot" (P) and the SNFO/SCSO in the right seat is referred
to as "Copilot" (CP). The Instructor Naval Flight Officer/Navigator (INFO/INAV) is called
"Jump" (J). The CP prompts all checklists with the term "standing by" the appropriate checklist.
In return, the P will clear the CP to initiate the checklist.
Using this method, the CP calls for an item, the P performs the action and gives the proper
response. With this convention the initiator of the checklist may verify these items by visually
noting the action has been performed. Once the action is complete and the proper response
verbalized, the CP moves on to the next item. However, any configuration changes (gear, flaps,
and trim) require visual and verbal backup by the student (e.g., CP: "Gear" P: "Flaps 10, gear
