  1. The first tip is to avoid buying a cheap bag.
  2. It should be just the right size to fit next to you in the cockpit.
  3. You should always have all of the necessary IDs and documents required by your company.
  4. With a metal clipboard you’d need to open you bag when you go through security, delaying you.
  5. You should pack earplugs or some other ear protection for the walk around so that your hands can be free and your ears protected.
  6. Some disinfectant wipes (disinfecting swipes) are necessary for good hygiene, they can prevent you from picking up bacteria and getting sick.
  7. It’s a good idea because it’s an item that can last a long time.
  8. Extra batteries should be kept for your headset or flashlight.
  9. They’re a bad idea because with constant pressure changes, a cheap one will stop working properly.
  10. While technically the book isn’t necessary, some record of your flight hours is necessary in case of an inspection.
