So this is the first cheat sheet I created for myself. I needed to organize everything VISUALLY from Communication Requirements, to Airspace, to Clouds, etc. As I created this, I just kept adding more and more to it. It is a great reference that I go back to all the time. The abbreviations for clouds might be a bit confusing so please refer to this page for better understanding…

AIRSPACE CHEAT SHEET UPDATES
5/2/2019: In this version I added VOR service volumes, Oxygen requirements/altitudes and added some IFR information throughout including a new altitude directional graphic. Hope you all enjoy!
7/11/2020: In this version, I added some minor content throughout that I learned studying for commercial. I also added ADS-B requirements, and changed some colors for better printing! Thanks for the comments everyone. Enjoy!
7/11/2021: In this version, I made a few minor fixes and added a cloud clearances graphic.
This website you created is a fantastic resource! The “cheat sheets” are incredible and easy to follow!! Thank you so much for sharing this with us!! I will be using them A LOT:))
Thank you so much for sharing this! You have really helped break concepts down into understandable and easy to read “cheat sheets”. It has made studying so much easier!! 😀
Very awesome of you to create this cheat sheet, but its not really a cheat sheet, its how the information should
be presented by the text book authors and ground school instructors. Instead, they try to impress you by how smart
they are! Goodluck to you in all your flight endeavors
You are the only source for excel based aviation checklist and resources that I have been able to find. You are a blessing to us all!
I think I have finally come across someone in aviation that learns the way I do. It has been such a struggle because a lot of the information it feels like you are just supposed to know already or come to the finding on your own! Are you still in IFR training? I have been looking for check lists of some sort to help with basic IFR flight. Like flying to the VOR and changing radials, holding ( in the air!) I just feel like I need step by step guidelines and I can’t find anything anywhere to organize my brain😫.
Thank you for all the info!
Thank you Katie. So happy to help. Yes I’m very close to my Instrument check ride. There is so much information to learn with Instrument that I’ve been overwhelmed myself with trying to organize the information. I currently have 15 pages of notes but I’ll be working on condensing and creating cheat sheets for that as well over the next few months. It may be a while since I still have to run my business. For myself I did modify the excel doc on this page… https://www.blondsinaviation.com/flight-prep-check-off-lists-emergency-procedures/ … and added some check offs for Non-Precision and Precision approaches (like make sure the GPS is set to V-Lock or GPS, OBS set, Ident LOC, etc). Hope that helps and good luck! You’ve got this!!
On the bottom of the chart please fix the misspelled maneuver “1500′ ABOVE – ACROBATICS / M A N E U V E R S”.
Also, the symbols for controlled airports (shown under B airspace) and the ones with runways >8069′ collocated with VOR should be the NEGATIVE of what’s shown, meaning runways and the dot (for VOR) should be in white with a blue outline around.
Thank you for the chart and keep up the good work!
Sorry this took me so long… but you’ll see your revisions on this updated version. Thank you for the kind words!
I wonder how many people you are helping – a HUGE THANK YOU!!!
