Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1 . This is the first release of this unit of competency in the AVI Aviation Training Package Release 9. Updates to Element 6 and Performance Criteria.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to execute advanced aeroplane manoeuvres and procedures in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and national operating standards.

It includes turning the aeroplane steeply, sideslipping, and executing short take-off and landing procedures. It also includes entering and recovering from stall conditions and recovering from wing drop at the stall.

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

Operations are conducted as part of recreational, 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.

Pre-requisite Unit
