    Your Cub came from the factory with a "BOTH" position on the fuel?

    Any checklist will do, and that one is ok except maybe for the FAA put seatbelts on it? But the Cub - even an 18 - can be safely flown with the flaps and trim set inappropriately. It probably won't fly really well if gas quantity were low, or oil pressure had dropped to zero during taxi. That's why I check G for gas, quantity, caps, and ON. But all you have to say is Gas - CHECKED for the examiner.

    I can take/post pictures of the items in my Pilots Handbook when I get home if that helps.

    Now you have a written checklist that should meet ACS BS.

    Take off

    Check the gas.
    Get your head out of your ass.
    Double check the gas.

    Landing

    Thanks all.

    I got some kicks reading through this and some good insight.

    as bob said- much of this is to make the dpe happy on my checkride. I do wish i could see the look on his face if someone gave him a checklist that read “check the gas and get your head out of your ass” but alas it wont be me as my check ride as iT would cost me $600 and i’m pretty sure i woiuld still be a student pilot after.

    Well the problem with this check list is that it seems to allow flying with head stowed. I prefer:

    Cranium - extract from rectum
    Fly - like you stole it
    Land - like you own it
    Cranium - return to storage

    To many big words, I'll never remember that.

    But a very good point, now that I think about it, if the only time I haven't had my head up my ass is takeoff and landings, that explains a lot of things.

    My check list is a simple question to myself after runup Do you want to die today which causes me to check everything for the third time.
