About Our Checklist Data

There are other checklist apps, but none feature Qref checklist data. A major difference in aircraft checklists between Qref and others is the level of experience and expertise that go into every procedure. The Qref team of Master CFIs has over four decades of combined active flight instruction and flying experience at all levels of industry, with instruction and flight time in this aircraft. They not only create checklists, they use them in daily instruction and flying, and recognize that if you can’t trust your checklist data, why use a checklist?

Customer service non-existent

I’ve used the app for months with great success, until I logged out and attempted to log back in again. Since then, it has refused to load. I’ve made numerous calls and sent numerous emails for help without response! Purchase at your own risk.

Useless without import/export capability

I've been using this app for almost 2 years and although it's usable, it's undependable. Seems that every time there's an iOS update there are issues with the server and I lose my custom lists never to be seen again. The generic lists are not very good or accurate, so forget generic lists for real flight use. So I've had to re-write my custom lists over and over. Being strictly dependent on cloud access and storage is a problem. Apparently Qref does not want users to be able to store their lists anywhere else but on their servers. I've asked for import/export for self-directed backups to no avail. No longer using this app, found a checklist app with import/export that is cheaper and more reliable (hint: not in the flight apps section).

Lost all customizing!

After several hours of editing the Cessna 172P checklist to match the lists used by my CFI, I was quite happy to have an iPad version to use on the same iPad that I run my EFB on. Manual syncing worked every time I made successive edits. And then it did not and I lost everything that I had edited. Most disappointing! Don't use this app. If that had happened on a trip, I would have had no detailed checklist as the standard one with the app is pretty basic.
