Posted on July 6, 2020 in Aviation

The acronym ARROW helps pilots remember the paperwork to be kept in a plane at all times:

  • Airworthiness Certificate – this is the airworthiness certificate provided after the aircraft is inspected by an FAA-approved vendor. This document ensures the safety and condition of the plane before it takes-off;
  • Registration Certificate – this is the registration form that the aircraft owner files with the FAA;
  • Radio Station License;
  • Operating Handbook – this is the user’s manual for the aircraft make and model; and
  • Weight and Balance Handbook – this is provides the calculations for the weight of the craft in terms of lift and drag for flight.
