Before you take your first flight of the spring flying season, perform a thorough preflight to ensure that your aircraft is ready for flight.
The AOPA Air Safety Foundation offers a Spring Preflight Safety Hot Spot that includes a detailed checklist of what to look for and why. The Safety Hot Spot also includes links to pertinent Safety Advisors, accidents in the foundation's Accident Database, and articles in AOPA Pilot and AOPA Flight Training.
Now that you're thinking about the detailed spring preflight inspection you're going to give your aircraft, take a moment to test your knowledge. The AOPA Air Safety Foundation's latest Safety Quiz focuses on aircraft preflight.
