How to approach flying a new aircraft?

What's a few of the first things you look at before flying an aircraft you're unfamiliar with. Do you look at emergency procedures, V speeds, or weight and balance. I'm just curious on what other experienced pilots have done in the past when approaching a new aircraft. Do you have your own system on what you look at first? I'm sure some guys and gals have made mistakes and have learned from it, so I'm just wondering if there was something you do particularly when in a new frame.

How to approach flying a new aircraft?

Find an instructor. Period.

Your instructor will, based on your past experience, guide you through the transition. For example are you going from Cessna 152 to 172? Or Cherokee to Cessna? Do you have experience with manual trim? Glass cockpit experience? These are just some examples. The process is so dynamic & variable that one cannot give a concrete answer here.

Say you have a PPL, and you want to exercise your privileges on this new aircraft. Your task is simple: demonstrate that you can perform what a PPL is supposed to perform if you were to do the checkride in that aircraft. You can expect to go through the entire PPL syllabus, only at a much faster pace because (hopefully) you understand every concept, it is just the matter of applying them to a new aircraft. Your instructor will not have to explain theories to you; it will be a lot more flying and a lot less ground school.
