Checklists in MGC

Available for Pro and Enterprise Users


Checklists are built into Measure Ground Control to normalize operations and reduce mistakes and human error. Pilots can use checklists during all phases of a flight operation to ensure a smooth and worry-free flight operation. Many customer organizations mandate the use of checklists by their pilots for regulatory and compliance purposes. Your checklist will be bundled with the log of the most recent flight completed; this includes a flight logged manually.  

It is important to note that failure to complete a checklist will not prevent flights from occurring; thus it is the responsibility of the pilot to complete checklists as dictated by their program manager.

Checklists can be accessed in the MGC Mobile App by through the left slider menu.

Checklists can vary by mission, flight type, drone, and organizational requirements/mandates. To ensure a checklist is associated with the correct flight, please make sure to submit the checklist once the flight is complete, and the post-flight checklist items have been finished. 

Enterprise customers can request new and custom checklists by contacting Measure at

By default, checklists cover the following areas:

  • Aircraft/UAS Preparation
  • Controller/Tablet Preparation
  • Pre-takeoff
  • Startup
  • Launch
  • Recovery
  • Flight Notes (General, Incident, Hardware, etc.) 

    At the end of the mission, the checklist can be finalized by selecting the Submit Checklist once the flight is complete.
