If you have ever been to an air show briefing and witnessed the FAA IIC diligently taking notes, you may have pondered specifically what they are looking for. Well, ponder no longer. Thanks to the Cincinnati FSDO, we now have the checklist used by many FAA IICs to verify the readiness of performers and their aircraft. Mike Millard of the CVG FSDO has given us permission to distribute the checklist that he and his crew use. The checklist may be found here. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the checklist, and if you feel that there are missing components, email Dan Hollowell at email@example.com.
