Recent reports to the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) show an increase in checklist errors. Flights roll onto the runway for departure only for the pilots to discover that flaps are not properly set for takeoff. A flight takes off and the autobrakes are not set for a rejected takeoff. A flight departs and climbs out only to discover that pressurization packs are not on.
