Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Assumed Knowledge: All seven Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) Theory Exams.

The seven subjects include:  Air Law, Aircraft Systems, Aerodynamics, Human Factors, Metrology, Navigation and Operations. 


Course Description

This course advances your theory knowledge beyond low performance, low altitude operations, to high performance, high altitude operations. This course provides the basis of the knowledge required to undertake the CASA Air Transport Pilot Licence Theory exams covering Air Law, Navigation, Meteorology and Human Factors.

 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

 This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) for AD023.

  • Demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge to adapt fundamental principles, concepts and techniques to known and unknown situations
  • Show initiative and judgement in planning, problem solving and decision making in aviation practice; with communication and analytical skills to interpret and transmit responses to sometimes complex problems.
  • Function effectively as an individual and in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with the capacity to be an effective team member as well as to take on roles of responsibility.

 

 


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

On completion of this course you should be able to:

  1. Apply fundamental flight principles, concepts and techniques to known and unknown flight situations
  2. Display initiative and judgement in planning, problem solving and decision making in aviation practice; with communication and analytical skills to interpret and transmit responses to sometimes complex problems.
  3. Recognise and apply aviation industry skills, attitudes and professional standards and function effectively as an individual and in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with the capacity to be an effective team member as well as to take on roles of responsibility.
  4.  Relate to flight underpinning theory of Air Law, Human Factors, Meteorology and Navigation.

 


Overview of Learning Activities

The learning activities included in this course are:

  • Attendance at lectures where syllabus material will be presented and explained.
  • completion of tutorial questions and possibly workshop projects designed to give further practice in the application of flying theory to given situations, and to give feedback on student progress and understanding;
  • completion of class exercises consisting of numerical calculations and other factors requiring an integrated understanding of the subject matter; and
  • self-study, working through the course as presented in classes, information gathered from practical demonstrations and learning materials, and gaining practice at solving flight related calculations
  • Tests and exams.


Overview of Learning Resources

You will be required to use CASA and other texts and as well as receiving classroom handouts. Videos, practical demonstrations and discussions in the classroom will enhance your learning.
