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 obtain a commercial pilot licence (aeroplane), in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and national operating standards.

It addresses the following competency standards in the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASRs) Part 61 Manual of Standards Instrument:

Common standards

  • communicating in the aviation environment
  • perform pre- and post-flight actions and procedures
  • operate aeronautical radio
  • manage fuel
  • manage passengers and cargo
  • non-technical skills 1 (manage a safe flight)
  • non-technical skills 2 (recognise, direct and manage threats and errors)

Navigation and instrument flying standards

  • navigate aircraft
  • radio navigation en route
  • full instrument panel manoeuvres
  • limited instrument panel manoeuvres
  • operate at a controlled aerodrome
  • operate at non-towered aerodromes
  • operate in controlled airspace
  • operate in Class G airspace

Aircraft rating standards: aeroplane category

  • control aeroplane on the ground
  • take-off aeroplane
  • control aeroplane in normal flight
  • land aeroplane
  • aeroplane advanced manoeuvres
  • manage abnormal situations single engine aeroplanes.

This unit addresses aviation non-technical skills and knowledge requirements (mental, social and personal-management abilities) for commercial pilots, and contributes to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

This unit also addresses aviation technical skills and knowledge requirements (physical, mental and task-management abilities) related to commercial pilot duties, and contributes to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

Operations are conducted as part of commercial or 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.
