Mine is, for Takeoff:

Engine Maintenance
Engine and gauge check
Tailwheel
Auto-Engine
Auto-prop
Chocks (May be applied)
Canopy (May be applied)
Wheel brakes
WEP

Landing:

Navigation Lights (May be applied)
Cockpit Lights (May be applied)
Lower Gear
Air Brakes
Arrestor Hook (May be applied)



If you think that I'm missing anything or doing too much then please tell me. I think that the engine maintenance and gauge check might be too much since at the begging of any mission every condition should be fine. Most people do engine maintenance if flight. Also please tell me you engine maintenance routine and explain to me why someone would decrease mixture

Megile's landing routine not mentioned, 'prhaps it's a gravity based one following loss of aerodynamics and lift due to collision with high velocity projectiles?

Your takeoff routine looks fine, landing I would add flaps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
WEP would depend on engine.

Mixture variation, like supercharger stages, is to take into account altitude, leaning off the mixture for higher altitude.

Some state increasing mixture can help with carrier take-offs, for me the jury is still out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Ultimately it's whatever adds to the immersion for you and what helps to squeeze the most performance out of your craft.

Looks good to me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif....flaps may have to be added to your list

I don't know why or what you mean for engine maintenance on the take off list, and I think that airbrakes are a definite no-no for landing planes of the era.

Engine maintenance? How the hell do you pull that off in a freakin computer game? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Oh and in real life, WEP should never be engaged on take off. But opening up a beer is acceptable as a replacement.
