    It’s pretty much the same in all aircraft, model it after the airlines:

    How to work the seat belt and when it must be used.
    No smoking.
    Where the fire extinguisher is.
    How to enter and exit the aircraft.
    Any survival equipment on board and how to use it.

    You may also wish to add something about silence during the departure and landing phases.

    For a 172 the specialty is knowing they can climb over the back seat and exit from the rear bagage door and how to enter the aircraft gracefully without banging their head. The rest follows the generic.

    i also like to mention who is the person in charge in controlling the plane and the autopilot (if the plane is equipped) so if they see nobody holding the yoke they don’t freak out.
