AVAT13007 - Flight Training Advanced
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for AVAT13007 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 advanced level of Recreational/General aviation flying through a Recreation Aviation Australia or General Aviation Flight School. Students will fly up to 20 hours learning to Aviate, Navigate, and Communicate while in a Recreational or General Aviation Aircraft under the supervision of an instructor and RA-AUS or General Aviation flight school. This unit intends to give the aviation student advanced training in powered flight and the opportunity to integrate theory with application. A Pilot Certificate or endorsement may be awarded from this unit depending on the students flying experience and costs associated with the training. This unit is designed to give the student an introduction to flying or advanced training to a qualified pilot.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

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
Flight school approval process needs to be streamlined Have Your Say Assign personnel to manage the approval process
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Operate, assess, and evaluate performance piloting a recreation or general aviation aircraft in different phases of flight in a genearal aviation or recreation aviation syllabus training program.
  2. Manage flight controls, effectors, and gauges required for the normal operation of an aircraft. Integrate theory to identify normal ranges of performance.
  3. Apply aviation theory and navigation skills in a range of flying situations, to include circuits, stall practice, navigation, emergency landing practise, and other emergency procedures in a recreational or general aviation aircraft.
  4. Determine and create an appropriate flight plan for an advanced level flight (navigation, tail wheel, etc.) considering theory, knowledge, resources and environmental factors.
  5. Review analyse and implement emergency procedures, appropriate actions and equipment needed in the safe operation of an advanced stage of flight.

The learning outcomes are matched to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) syllabus. The successful completion of flying in this unit may result in the student obtaining a pilot license. This external accreditation will depend on the student's current flight experience and their progress during the flight training. The external accreditation is through CASA and the student must meet the requirements set by the flying syllabus.
