Who could be interested in CheckList Manager? Do you feel mortified by the many procedures required to manage complex add-on aircrafts? Are you a pilot that flies on-line but you get confused when ATC is calling you just as you are reading your paper checklist, observing the approach chart and piloting a bird of 50 tons that, in real live, requires a minimum of two qualified pilots to operate? Your wife/husband or your girl/boy-friend do not intend to help you doing the first officer duties of reading aircraft’s checklists for you? Are you fed up to start-up default Flight Simulator’s aircrafts with Ctrl+E keys combination and you would to have a professional approach even with this kind of aircrafts using relative checklists?
All this questions have just one answer: CheckList Manager!
How does CheckList Manager work? From the Cold & Dark situation at the departure airport until shutdown of engines at the arrival airport, row after row, CLM will show the specific checklist at the right time. The power of CLM is the simplicity, in fact, no invasive gauge (frame rates will not decrease and your field of view will not be obscured or reset) but a transparent window that you can move (drag & drop) and scale as you wish.
The most important issue is that you do not have to move your eyes out of the cockpit to read a checklist , thus keeping your concentration on piloting your aircraft. To scroll checklists you just press a key combination on your keyboard or on an assigned button of your yoke or joystick (in the included instructions you’ll find this explained).
CLM automates some checklists and presents this to you in a manner that will not disturb your concentration while performing complicated flight operations (like takeoff, landing roll, etcetera).
Any checklist is made for any specific aircraft. Any checklist that you find in CheckList Manager is suitable for any add-on. It is the result of a fusion of specific checklist and relative Manual/Tutorial. You will just have to know the names of the instruments and their location, in the aircraft you wish to fly, then start your flight and Checklist Manager will lead you in any phase of your flight. Where possible, for complex aircrafts, an extra help was implemented, in fact, at the end of some calls you’ll find, between round parenthesis, a letter that indicates the panel you have to open to execute the command: (M)=Main panel, (O)=Overhead panel, (T)=Throttle, (-||-) =, etcetera, and suggestions about same not well highlighted command from aircraft’s developers

Why only text messages and no vocal messages? There are several reasons but the most important are: in CLM there are more then 1700 different calls… recording all calls would mean many many more hours of work and it would make the product far to expensive while we would like to maintain is affordable to everyone. Another reason is that this software is made thinking of simmers that fly on-line where screen messages keep constantly appearing; this messages would keep erasing CheckList Manager’s messages. Therefore we made a reiteration of messages (messages reappear if deleted from Fs multiplayer message like ‘XXXX Join the session’) and this makes it impossible to use voice for messages.
However CLM is not completely silent: many sounds were added to improve realism like cabin crew messages (where missing), ATC voice and environment sounds.
