Cockpit Familiarization
used for alignment

Once you have done your homework and you thoroughly understand the new aircraft, you should take the aircraft's manual and checklist out to the aircraft and spend time sitting in the cockpit to learn the location of the various controls, instruments, and checklist procedures. Your goal is to become familiar enough with the aircraft to be able to fly it before you ever start the engine. If you are renting the aircraft, this procedure also will save you valuable training dollars. You don't have to pay a CFI to teach you something that you can review on your own. When you are comfortable with the location of every item in the cockpit and with the aircraft's procedures and numbers, it is time to go flying with a CFI or a pilot who is current in the aircraft.
