Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the AVI Aviation Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to operate aircraft using aircraft flight instruments, in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and national operating standards.

It includes establishing serviceability of flight instruments and instrument power sources, operating an aircraft using full instrument procedures and recovering from unusual attitudes using full instrument procedures. It also includes operating an aircraft using limited instrument procedures, recovering from unusual attitudes using limited instrument procedures, re-establishing visual flight, and performing steep turns.

This unit addresses aviation technical skill requirements (physical, mental and task-management abilities) related to aircraft operational duties that complement flight crew non-technical skills, and contributes to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

Operations are conducted as part of commercial and military aircraft activities across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian aviation industry.

Work is performed independently or under limited supervision within a single-pilot or multi-crew environment.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements are applicable to this unit.

Use for Defence Aviation is to be in accordance with relevant Defence Orders, Instructions, Publications and Regulations.
