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 apply the principles of civil air law to aviation operations, in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and national operating standards.

It includes compiling aviation documentation, applying flight crew licensing requirements, and applying flight rules and conditions of flight to aviation operations. It also includes applying air service operations legislative requirements, aerodrome and airspace knowledge, and aviation emergency and search and rescue (SAR) knowledge to aviation operations.

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

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.
