Ever wished for a virtual co-pilot to help with the mountain of checklists it takes to go flying? Thankfully, there’s now an app for that.

Whether you’re a budding light aircraft pilot, or an expert virtual one, tapCheck is an essential tool. Simply select the aircraft, then the checklist and let tapCheck’s silky smooth voice guide you through each of those vital checks and steps. Whether you’re pre-flighting, or lining up an approach, we’ve got the checklist you need.

tapCheck includes lists for the popular Cessna 152, 172 and 182, as well as virtual favorites like the DCS Black Shark and A-10. Each month we’ll be releasing more aircraft for your virtual hangar as well so if you what you need isn’t already listed, just let us know and we’ll do what we can to add it.

tapCheck. Simple, beautiful and essential.

Note for PC Pilot readers: We had some technical struggles with voice recognition so (for the time being) tapCheck speaks, but doesn’t listen.

If you have any problems, comments or suggestions, you can reach us at tapcheck@monkeyfoot.com.
