AVAT12005 - Aviation Flight Training
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for AVAT12005 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit is the practical flying component that teaches students the basics of Recreational Flying through a Recreation Aviation Australia Flight School. Students will fly a small training aircraft and do all necessary actions and procedures to operate it safely. Students will fly approximately 20 hours learning to Aviate, Navigate, and Communicate while in a Recreational Aircraft under the supervision of an instructor and RA-AUS flight school. This unit intends to give the aviation student an introduction to powered flight and the opportunity to match theory with application. A Pilot Certificate will not be awarded from this unit although the 20 hours can be used towards the RA-AUS Pilot Certificate.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Ron Bishop is, without a doubt, the best aspect of this course (followed closely by the actual course itself). When I needed additional support, guidance and assistance, Ron was very easy to contact, even outside of business hours. This is actually a big deal for a distance student, when it's quite easy to feel somewhat "separated" from the uni. Ron should be commended for his excellent communication with students. Have Your Say Keep up the good work and keep improving.
I give this course an easy 10/10, both for what it provides to students of aviation and also for the support provided by Ron. Have Your Say Keep up the good work and keep improving.
However, my initial difficulties were quickly resolved and I have to thank Ron Bishop for his advice and guidance, in this regard. Within a week, I was able to obtain the necessary paperwork and communication I required, to ensure my enrolment at a suitable flying school, and this is due to Ron's excellent assistance. Have Your Say Keep up the communication processes and improve the method how students are informed.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Operate a Recreation Aviation Training aircraft in different phases of flight and pass the Basic Aeronautical Knowledge (BAK) test.
  2. List emergency procedures, appropriate actions and equipment needed in the safe operation of a recreational aircraft.
  3. Use flight controls, effectors, and gauges required for the normal operation of an aircraft.
  4. Describe the different parts, systems and sub-systems of an aircraft that enable powered flight.
  5. Describe the different flight controls and their effects on an aircraft in flight.
  6. Apply theory and locate information to describe principles of powered flight.
  7. Plan for a day’s flight considering theory, knowledge, resources and environmental factors.
