In the last episode, we covered the engine portion of the inspection checklist.
This week, we cover the rest of the checklist, which is the airframe portion of the inspection.
One item on the inspection checklist that may be overlooked, is to check and make sure all the required POH placards are present and legible. These required placards are listed in the back of the Limitations section of the POH.
