What an awesome application.  Have made modifications and both the iPhone and iPad are synced. Once again...AWESOME. And thanks for getting back to me on the weekend.

... Ron M. (very happy customer)



Excellent app. Very easy to use and very configurable. By far the best aviation checklist app available. Well worth the $.

Two of the things I like most are: 1)  the ease of editing and customizing the checklists.  I have written my own checklists for over 40 years, just so I could use a checklist that has everything I need in the sequence that makes sense to me.  CheckMate gives me that capability - and more - as I transition to a paperless operation.

And 2) the vast amount of information that is logically and easily available, such as the emergency and reference pages.

After looking at other digital checklists, some of which were free, CheckMate is definitely my favorite.  I look forward to using it extensively and often.

Thanks again for the excellent product and excellent service.

The CheckMate Aviation app is a free download is highly recommended and very worthwhile.
 ...Jim, iPad Pilot News

(Note from CheckMate: Our App Is Free To Download. Try our sample checklist before purchasing the checklist for your specific aircraft.)

I just found the iOS versions, bravo! I've been a user of CheckMate for years, and have about 25 different checklists (I am a CFI and always have the checklist for any aircraft in which I teach). 

And thanks for your CFI discount program!!

.... Richard at RT Aviation.


Thanks for the super fast response and taking the time to include screen shots with your notes.  When I bought one of the checklists, I wasn't sure if it would be customizable enough or if I would like it, but for $15 the risk was limited. I immediately saw how excellent this app is. The stock checklist is accurate and thorough and the customization makes it perfect for the specific airplane's configuration. The extra features such as the summary pages and reference pages brings me much closer to a paperless cockpit.

Between the excellent program and your super responsive and clear support - this app is a winner!   Thanks again.  ........Mike

Awesome app¬ I've been using this app for a year now and on 5 aircraft. This interactive checklist is the best way to stay on track with your preflight. I really like that I can customize a list and save it under the trail number. This is great for those items that are specific to that particular aircraft. When upgrading to the Samsung Note 4 and its high dpi screen, the app had some issues. Support for the app worked with me to troubleshoot this and then issued a new version for download in one day. Great service!

5+ stars No other app that I know  meets these requirements: edit on the web, Apple and Android platforms, sharing, AND printing.  For a year, I settled with another app but it was only hosted in Apple platforms, no print and when I asked them for improvements, they had no intentions to improve it. I then tried a second company which looked promising and asked the developer for a print, but support kept vanishing. A few weeks ago, I bought CheckMate app which was also short of a printing option. I contacted them and unbelievable, they answered within 24 hrs my multiple recommendations of a print  function to multiple format, a user's guide.  In less than three weeks, they upgraded their product, including printing, surpassing my requirements and answering my wishes.

Super user-friendly ap¬ I downloaded this application and in no time at all was able to figure out how to create my own checklist to specifically suit my older cessna 182 and the items I want accessible quickly. I wish there were more tab colors and if there is a way to include pictures in the notes or tables. If there is a haven't found them. I recommended this application for the instructors at my flight school.







Pretty good! Near perfect.¬ Being enthusiastic, here are my suggested improvements. A. Either widen the checklist columns (Samsung S6) or make the checklist screen width adjustable by user per phone screen size. Some things just don't abbreviate well for the narrow space, and you can't read or use the adjoining checklist column anyway. B. Add audio read back of checklist text. Less distraction=more safety, especially enroute. Read August Aviation Consumer reviews on checklists; this product beats those reviewed except for audio.

Not even close....¬

I've tried them all and this is the one. Has beautiful flow in the cockpit and is super intuitive. Best is the app's safety feature whereby you must check off each item to continue to the next list. This prevents oversights. A paper list has no way of letting you know you missed something. This is key.¬ 

Also, the customer srvc, should you ever need it is so fast that it's uncanny.¬ 
Like when you order Thai food and it comes so quickly that you almost wonder if it's possible that the food could have been cooked in that amount of time.¬ 
That kind of fast, only without the food poisoning.

Best aviation checklist app that I have found‚Ķ¬

by Bruce Lowman

Unfortunately I downloaded two other apps hoping to find one that was user-friendly. I had a hard copy of an aircraft checklist from CheckMate and decided to see if they have an app. They did and I reluctantly downloaded it, half figuring that it would be as disappointing as the other two.

I was gratified to find out that it is by far the easiest, most thorough and intuitive of the ones that I have run across to this point. From now on,I will be able to utilize my iPhone for all phases of preflight, flight and post flight. Hats off to CheckMate!

This app works great for my requirements. It's intuitive, easy to use, and easy to modify to one's specific needs. I also like the layout / appearance. Highly recommend it.

Have A Story You Want To Tell?

I purchased a 1965 C182H way across the country in St. Louis and the previous owner had left a well-used CheckMate inside.    I had been using a spiral bound check-list that I made myself up until that time but it was for a 172.   Since I needed a new one I decided to use the CheckMate.
I was soon very impressed with its organization and thoroughness.   It made flying safer.
It was better in every way then what I had used before and the ultimate test would come soon.

Coming home from a coastal flight in the evening during October the engine began to lose power.   Although I had trained for this many times, panic was the first thing I remember as there was absolutely nowhere to land.   The engine further deteriorated and began to sputter.   Something had to be done – but what??   I remembered that the CheckMate had emergency procedures on the back side – though I had never paid much attention before.  Well, I did then.

I immediately executed the Power Loss In Flight checklist … and…after nearly losing the engine and 500 feet…saw “Carb Heat – ON”.  The engine further sputtered and then roared back to life! Now I fly with CheckMate in my hands – or the hands of my passenger – who is briefed on potential problems and the use of the emergency procedure checklists.    Thanks CheckMate!    You are never out of reach.  ....Cliff, Washington
