I heard that one as

(M)y (H)ouse + You(r) (B)eer = (M)y (B)eer

The ones that are on my 'sheet of knowledge'.

Required Inspections:
"AV1ATE"
Annual (12 MOS)
VOR Check (30 days, IFR only)
100 HR (100 hours.. Duh!   Aircraft for hire only.)
Altimeter (24 MOS the pitot-static system.)
Transponder (24 MOS)
ELT (12 MOS)

Required equipment: (yeah, I know this was posted earlier.)
A TOMATO FLAMES

Airspeed indicator
Tachometer
Oil Pressure Indicator
Magnetic Direction Indicator
Altimeter
Temperature gauge for each liquid cooled engine
Oil temperature gauge for each air cooled engine
Fuel gauge for each tank
Landing gear position indicator
Anti-collision lights
Manifold pressure gauge for each constant-speed engine
Emergency Locator Transmitter
Safety belts

Required equipment for night:
FLAPS

Fuses (spares)
Landing light
Anti--collision lights
Position lights
Source of electrical energy

Required instruments for IFR flight:
GRABCARD

Generator or Alternator
Rate of turn indicator
Adjustable altimeter
Ball for coordinating turns
Clock (panel mounted)
Attitude indicator
Radio
Directional Gyro

Required documents:
ARROW

Airworthiness certificate
Registration (State and Federal)
Radio station license (If flying internationally)
Operating limitations
Weight and balance

Transponder codes:  (I got this one from the post made earlier on this thread. I like it and have filed off the serial numbers and am claiming it for myself.)

Hi, Jack, I can't hear you.  Help!

7500:   Hijacking
7600:   Lost communications
7700:   Any other emergency

What to do if you are lost.
"5 Cs"  (I think that the 'communicate' part gets wrapped up in 'confess' in my version)

Climb
Circle
Confess
Comply
Conserve

Required information prior to a flight:
AFATWRK  (A fat work)

All information regarding the flight
Fuel requirements for the flight
Alternate airport (if required)
Takeoff and landing distances
Weather reports at destination
Runway lengths at airports of intended landing
Known ATC delays.

Self-check prior to flying (already posted, I know)
IM SAFE

Illness
Medication
Stress
Alcohol
Fatigue
External factors or Emotions

NDB math: (a few other versions were posted here already too)
Mary Had Roast Beaf, Mary Barfed

Magnetic Heading
+
Relative Bearing
=
Magnetic Bearing


Compass acceleration errors:
ANDS

Accelerate
North
Decelerate
South

Compass turning errors:
UNOS

Undershoot
North
Overshoot
South

Lost comms routing in IFR: Not really a mnemonic, but here it is anyway.
AVEF (I like the AVEnue F way to remember that Dave W posted earlier)

Assigned
Vectored
Expected
Filed

Lost comms minimum altitude in IFR:  Not really a nmemonic either.   

Expected
Assigned

Clearance information to write down:
CRAFT

Clearance limit
Route
Altitude
Frequency for next contact
Transponder code



And apparently that's all the knowledge I have.
SEL Commercial
MEL Private
Instrument
CFI
AGI

Alternate Air at BFI

  I only know (or can remember) three, two of which were already spelled out.
  documents: ARROW
landing checklist: GUMP
 
takeoff checklist: CIGARS
Controls (free & correct)
Instruments (set)
Gas (on)
Attitude (trim & flaps set)
Radios ( on + correct freq & squawk)
Safety (doors latched, seatbelts on)
Fly low and maintain radio silence

How about ABCDE?

Engine failure during flight....

AAirspeed, BBest place to land, CChecklist, DDeclare an emergency, EExecute a flawless engine out landing.

Actually, you missed one on this one. It should be "MEA" for:

Minimum enroute altitude
Expected
Filed

Probably just a typo  ;)

A good landing is one you can walk away from,
A great landing is where you can reuse the airplane!

All way to much for me to remember...



One thing my Instructor always told me...


Just remember this.


Fly the Plane all the way to the Crash.

For Transponder I use ELT (which I'm going to claim I made up since I haven't seen it anywhere else)

7700 Emergency
7600 Lost comm
7500 Terrorist

And before take-off (after run-up)

Lights
Camera (Transponder)
Action (flaps)

 For enroute emergencies:  WTF?
Fly low and maintain radio silence

In this months issue of Flight Training magazine they talk about mnemonics

when the engine died he used:

Firewall everything
Undercarriage up
Check which engine failed
Kill it

and the second word

Mags check
Electrics check.

In the article the plane was full of parachutists that all bailed shorts after the pilot shouted the mnemonic!

  I had an engine puke on me once and that's what I said-- although there wasn't any memnonics involved.   :D
