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, Meteorology, Navigation and Operations. 


Course Description

This course advances your theory knowledge beyond low performance, low altitude operations, to high performance, high altitude operations and is the basis of the knowledge required to pass the Air Transport Pilot Licence Theory exams covering Air Law, Navigation, Meteorology and Human Factors, Flight Planning, Performance & Loading, and Systems.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):

  • 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.
  • 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.
