Fence checklist for a slick or other combat helo

Flying Reflected Paradise Lost campaign in the Huey, got me thinking about needing a fence check checklist. I can think of a few items that would be good, but wondered what else should be on the list. Does anyone have a published one they could share?

Fence in:

  • Lights out
  • Doors open, secured, and door guns loaded and locked (function check?)
  • Loose items stowed
  • Helmets and other items protective gear on, safety straps connected
  • Radio frequency check
    ?

Ha. Music on! Surfboards secure.

Someone needs to do a surfboard rack mod for the DCS Huey.

I’m not sure how much it helps, but there was a generic mnemonic for fence checks going round a while ago:

F: Fire control (master arm on)
E: ECM and expendables (chaff/flares)
N: Navigation (current pos, target waypoint, orientation of forces, check DG aligned if that’s a thing)
C: Comms (correct freq, controller, etc)
E: Employment (brief weapons employment, set switches to enable employment)
