Minimalist Pilot Bag

When I was a student pilot ten years ago, my pilot bag was huge and heavy, full of manuals, maps, and approach plates. Today, thanks to the iPad, a lot of that stuff can be digitized, and you don’t need much to fly anymore. My minimalist pilot bag will be nothing more than my regular messenger bag with the following items added to it:

In order to make it easy to get all these items in my bag before a flight, I will store them in a single drawer of my tool chest. I will also attach a checklist to my headset’s bag, so that I can make sure that I have everything before leaving for the airport. Pilots love checklists!
