I also carry electronically in a Dropbox my entire equipment list, including hoses, with serial numbers, phone numbers, and dates manufactured and installed just In case I need that while out and about.
I have a friend that runs his 172 full rich all the time because a CFI told him to decades ago. Because CFI thinks it so doesn't make it true.
Check the regs on applying for a MEL, you're not flying a 787. Going to have a dispatch department too? We needed dispatch approval when deferring items via the MEL at the airlines.
Don't complicate your life these aircraft are not that complex.

My CFI asked if I had a MEL as part of discussion on what could be failed on my aircraft and I would still feel safe to fly. He did not force me to make it. I decided on my own that it would be a good idea. Since it is not part of my operating limitation I got, it is just a nice to have list, not a legal document.
If you donít want to have a MEL, good for you.

I have the MEL discussion with students and sometimes during BFR's. There's a lot of bad info out there about MEL's and how they work. Especially now that newer certified airplanes have a KOEL list in the POH, even for part 91 operations.
