When spending a lot of time around airplanes, I frequently see people conducting a "quick" walk-around, not really checking the things they should. (In some rare cases, I ‘ve even seen pilots not doing a walk around at all).
My advice: "The day that you haven’t done a proper walk around, will probably be the day you wish you did one!"
In the Cessna POH, Section 4 which covers Normal Procedures, you will find a Preflight Inspection Checklist that will start you off inside the cabin and moves counterclockwise around the airplane. This is a great checklist but according to us a little "too condensed", so at EuroPilot Center we’ve created a more in depth checklist to help you better.
This video will demonstrate you every single step of this checklist with a clear explanation on what to do.
Note that this checklist is for reference only and that the official Manufacturers checklist always has priority over this one.
