Principles and guidelines relative to the design of checklists and working methods in the cockpit

EASA/2012/1

The objective of this study was to compile the results of studies and work done, as well as any instructions and directives issued by civil aviation authorities to date, concerning the principles and guidelines relative to the design of checklists and working methods in the cockpit so as to allow European operators and manufacturers and National Aviation Authorities to have clear references on the state of the art in the design and application of checklists.


The study, supported by the European Human Factors Advisory Group (EHFAG), takes into account normal, abnormal and emergency check lists with priority to commercial air transport, but attention is also given to rotorcraft (commercial operation) and business aviation and reference material such as UK CAA CAP 676.
