Course Description

This course further consolidates your skills and knowledge of flying and navigation sequences learnt and tested in the previous Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) and Private Pilot Licence (PPL) courses.

This course will provide you with enhanced flying skills, pre-flight actions and procedures that are at an introductory level for your Commercial Pilot Licence. 

This course is designed to introduce you to the concepts and theories of Commercial Piloting along side practical flying, by successfully undertaking this course you will be prepared to commence the Commercial Pilot Course at RMIT. 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) for AD023 Associate Degree in Aviation (Professional Pilots): 

  • Demonstrate knowledge of underpinning theoretical aviation principles, and analyse information to complete a range of activities
  • Demonstrate the cognitive, technical and creative thinking skills to a broad understanding of the aviation industry, and to provide specialist advice and functions
  • Ability to apply a depth of knowledge in a range of industry practise fundamentals in contexts that are subject to change, and adapt knowledge and skills in a range of contexts.
  • Demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge to adapt fundamental principles, concepts and techniques to known and unknown situations
  • Plan and execute activities to an appropriate professional standard.
  • Understanding of and commitment to professional and ethical responsibilities


On completion of this course you should be able to demonstrate:

1. Technical ability: with its emphasis on problem solving, and practical engineering examples this course will prepare you to be able to analyse the physical world in a systematic manner;

2.Critical analysis and problem solving: you will be afforded opportunities to formulate and solve problems

3. Relate to professional practice an understanding of the following aviation subjects: Air Law, Human Factors and Meteorology.
