FAA Balloon Flying: Student Balloon Flight Checklist Mobile App

The app can be used by all pilots, students pilot and the flight school for their hot air balloon flight. Even passengers can be involved in following a checklist.

Checklists are the foundation of pilot standardization and safety for a hot-air balloon flight. Checklists are an excellent training and a help to ensure that critical items necessary for the safe operation of the balloon are not overlooked or forgotten. The hot air balloon pilot who fails to use checklists at the appropriate times are relying instead on memory, become complacent, and increase the odds of making a mistake.

The consistent use of checklists in primary flight training establishes habit patterns that will serve the pilot well throughout his or her flying career. It is important that the flight instructor promote a positive attitude toward the use of checklists so the student pilot recognizes their importance. It is a good tool to use during the practical test to get a pilot certificate.

Items in the checklist are related to different phases of the flight: preflight, inflation, balloon launch, pre-landing, and retrieval. Checklists are usually provided in the aircraft and pilot manual.

How It Works
I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.
