Default Where can I get a startup list for the F18?

I'm new to this and was just wondering if there is a startup list I can see while in sim? I use VR, but it would be nice just to learn how to startup the F18 even when I'm not in VR. So is there a list anywhere like in other flight sims that get checked off as I'm following the procedures to startup the E18? Cheers!

Yes, there are lists, but have you tried the Cold Start Training Mission? I always find those an excellent way to learn.

Try this:

Sydy has done loads of quick checklists for your kneeboard

Doesn't get checked off electronically but I'm sure you could print it and mark off each step as you go

I recommend getting kneeboard builder too. It easily makes Knee boards for you if you have the PDFs.

Does kneeboard builder pass integrity check?

You could also do VRK for the kneeboard. It feels good to be able to just write something down vs having to find the damn keyboard in VR.

Kneeboard Builder plus Chuck's guides are the snizzle for learning aircraft especially whilst in VR.
You can customize the size and position of the kneeboard that gets displayed in the VR headset.

I have been going through all the stages of learning the Hornet , have Chuck's guide broken down into several different kneeboards for the Hornet, and it has been a fantastic tool for me. I can totally reference it and learn the different aspects of the aircraft without ever taking my VR HMD off.

I use to get very frustrated when trying to learn a specific aircraft, now I do not and it is quite fun and rewarding.

The 476th has a checklist based off the NFM-500. Check out their download section
