Yes, Harrison Ford uses checklists when he flies

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Yes, Hollywood actor Harrison Ford uses a checklist when he flies.

The “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” star was accompanied by an inquisitive teenager when he flew his DeHavilland Beaver on Thursday at the AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 air show.

His passenger, 16-year-old Jodie Gawthrop of Westchester, Illinois, won the flight in a national contest though the Young Eagle program, which uses pilot and ground volunteers to introduce children to flying.

Ford took her flying to help celebrate the program reaching 2 million members. Ford was the program’s chairman from 2004 to 2009.

Ford told reporters that flying with Gawthrop was “really, really fun” and he’ll remember the flight for a long time. He says Gawthrop asked if celebrities use checklists. He says he told her celebrities absolutely need checklists.
