Why Use the checklist provided below: This checklist will help many of you starter players and expirenced players for extra realism! This checklist is old, but it is very accurate and includes details in which you never knew you would have to do in an actual checklist! This checklist also PROVIDES MORE THEN LANDING AND TAKE OFF STANDARD CHECKLISTS
Although there is a checklist app for infinite flight: This checklist that I came across from a long time ago, is still very accurate and is created from scratch!

You could, but most people if you think about dont really use the search feature to find old threads so Im just trying to take information that could potentially be valuable to some people on the thread and re- share it
See METAR, TAF, Runway winds for departure and arrival airports
Plan the route and feed in the map, set altitude autopilot
Request push back
Check for safety
Push and hold
Expedite everything after this step as you don’t want to hinder the movement of other traffic
Turn on Beacon
Engines start one by one
Check flight controls (just for realism) and set desired flaps
Ask for taxi clearance as soon as the engines stabilise
Check for safety
Release brakes and Taxi not beyond 28kt
Be patient to give way
Hold short when there is aircraft crossing or merging with your taxiway
Hold short Runway to cross / takeoff
Ask for clearance. Ask to stay in pattern if you wanna stay, or ask for outbound departures. It’s best to ask depart straight out (unless there’s terrain ahead) and follow your FPL after exiting the Class B airspace, as you won’t cross other departure routes. Request traffic advisories if necessary in Unicom.
Turn on Strobes
Enter / Cross Runway (turn off strobes after crossing)
If cleared for takeoff, turn on landing lights.
Roll and takeoff. Maintain climb speed V2. Set desired autopilot settings.
After takeoff, ask for approval from ATC if you’re about to cross other departure routes. If aborting, exit Runway ASAP and cross the hold short line, turn off landing lights and strobes and contact Ground freq
Ask for frequency change to Departure just before exiting Class B airspace. Tune out if no departure.
Ask for flight following in VFR or request for vectors in IFR.
Use NAV if told by departure to follow flight plan.
Turn off landing lights above FL100.
Set desired mach speed
Climb, level off, descend
Contact Approach if available and follow instructions. If no approach, call tower for inbound when at most 20nm out. Ask for transition when applicable.
Turn on landing lights below FL100.
Desired speed and flaps
Localised intercept at approx 2500ft MSL
Get clearance, spoilers armed and Extend gear. Request / send traffic advisories when necessary in Unicom. You don’t have to say anything after cleared for option. If you’re still downwind, and cleared, don’t call Base and final unless you’re changing the option to land or vice versa.
Execute missed approach when necessary and follow the pattern. It’s best not to plummet into the ground or overshoot. Go around when told to or it feels to. Aim for best flight rather than ending it soon.
Set final touch down speed and flaps and land. Full reverse and taxi at 40kt in the Runway when the exit if far. Expedite, hold short beyond the line after exiting your tail completely.
Strobes, landing lights off. Cross when already had instructed by tower if there’s any Runway ahead. Hold otherwise. Taxi after cleared by ground, after crossing all runways.
To be realistic, don’t use thrust at the gate. Slow down by using intermittent application of brakes.
Set brakes, Turn off engines
Turn off Beacon
Cool, you can now walk away alive.
May seem not like a clear checklist, but that is all. Have a good flight.
