2. Conduct aircraft pre-flight determining complete aircraft serviceability, fuel requirements and loading procedures and performance requirements in a multi-engine aircraft3. Demonstrate that they can manage aircraft systems, passengers, company and air traffic control requirements during normal and abnormal operations.
4. Demonstrate that they can conduct themselves in a responsible and accountable manner on cross country flights.
5. Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to plan and conduct a commercial flight from departure aerodrome to a destination aerodrome, or alternative aerodrome, navigating the aircraft under the applicable flight rules.
