This is the Standalone version for start-up checklists for all aircraft in DCS World.<br />
'Don't be John Wayne in the Break if you're going to be Jerry Lewis on the ball'. Sage advice that was frequently given to me by a USMC Harrier pilot during a collaborative development. The aircraft list in DCS has become quite extensive, and I have increasingly felt like an oaf when trying to jump into the seat of a previously familiar aircraft.
When writing the checklists, there was an over-arching goal to facilitate a system-state perspective so one can (hopefully) appreciate the quirks of different airframes rather than being bitten by them. These are abbreviated, but have each been created by reading the manual, testing in-sim, and integrating real world procedures as helpful and available (e.g. NATOPS). A general theme, especially for Gen 4+ aircraft has been work-flow optimization by reducing head/hand movement and grouping similar tasks.
