Engine start attempted with fuel selector wrongly setReminder to select BOTH tanks.
Engine start attempted and power lever not correctly setAdvice that power lever should be idle when starting.
Engine start attempted and parking brake not setWarning that parking brake must be set when starting the engine.
Engine start attempted with fuel shutoff pulled out - offReminder to push fuel shutoff in.
Engine start attempted and fuel condition lever not setAdvice that fuel condition lever must be at cut-off before starting.
Engine start attempted with master battery switch offAdvice that the master battery switch must be on when starting the engine.
Shortly after moving in taxi modeAdvice on which instruments and systems should be checked during taxiing.
Engine start with propeller control lever in incorrect positionReminder to set propeller control lever to maximum before starting engine.
In takeoff mode with autopilot onReminder to turn off autopilot.
In takeoff mode without "take-off" flaps (flaps 20)Warning that you must have flaps 20.
In takeoff mode with fuel boost pump onReminder to turn boost pump off for take-off.
In takeoff mode with more than "take-off" flaps (more than 20 degrees of flaps)Warning that you have too much flaps set and that you should use no more than 20 degrees.
Shortly after beginning takeoffAdvice to move power lever smoothly up to 1900 RPM.
Shortly after beginning takeoffAdvice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 73 KIAS.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 72 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to clear runway obstacles or to lift off from a soft field quickly.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that this aircraft's 'vY' (Best Rate of Climb Speed) is 104 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to climb after takeoff in normal operations.
Shortly after takeoffAdvice that in "cruise climb" in this aircraft you should normally use 1600 to 1900 RPM.
Shortly after takeoffAdvice that if you encounter heavy turbulence you need to be at or below manoeuvring speed ('vA') and to remember that this will decrease as you burn fuel.

Entering cruise modeAdvice on correct engine settings.
Descent and Landing
Descending and below maximum flap speed while landingAdvice that once below 175 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.
Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landingAdvice that once below 175 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.
Descent to landing and propeller control lever not setAdvice that propeller control lever must be full forward for descent to landing.
Descent to landing and fuel condition lever not setAdvice that fuel condition lever must be at low idle for descent to landing.
Descending and decelerating to 150 KIAS while landingAdvice that once below 150 KIAS the pilot may start to lower 20 degrees of flaps.
Descending and decelerating to 125 KIAS while landingAdvice that once below 125 KIAS the pilot may start to lower full flaps.
Descending shortly before landingReminder to turn off autopilot.
Descent to around 600 feet AGL while landingAdvice to use pitch to control airspeed and power to control rate of descent during approach and landing.
Descent to around 500 feet AGL while landingAdvice that you want to land with landings flaps (full flaps) at 80 knots IAS.
Descent to around 400 feet AGL while landingReminder to flare at about 10 to 15 feet above the runway and to lift the nose to land on your main
gear first, lower the nose wheel gently and use minimum braking required.
