Aims and objectives

From 2017 - Unit will be re-named (previously named - Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating Practicum)
To issue the student with a multi-engine aircraft class rating to be used in the Commercial Pilot Licence test.
To consolidate the theory taught in AVT20001 and integrate this theory into the practical flying training to obtain an Instrument Rating.
To consolidate the procedural aspects of VFR cross country flight.
At the completion of this unit of study the student should be able to:
1. Demonstrate that they can safely operate a multi-engine aircraft within defined limitations to commercial and COAA standard operating procedures.
2. Conduct aircraft pre-flight determining complete aircraft serviceability, fuel requirements.and loading procedures and performance requirements in a multi-engine aircraft.
3. Demonstrate that they can manage aircraft systems, passengers, company and air traffic.control requirements during normal and abnormal operations.
4. Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to plan and conduct a multi-engine flight under the.Instrument Flight Rules from departure aerodrome to a destination aerodrome, or alternative aerodrome. This includes pre-flight planning, compliance with airspace procedures and conducting instrument departure, en-route and arrival procedures using a
variety of navigation aids, during normal and abnormal operations.
5. Demonstrate that they can conduct themselves in a responsible and accountable manner on multi-engine IFR cross country flights.
6. Apply the theory and practical knowledge gained to attain a Civil Aviation Safety Authority
(CASA) Instrument Rating Command (Aeroplane) in a multi-engine aircraft
7. Demonstrate that they can conduct themselves in a responsible and accountable manner on VFR cross country flights as a professional pilot conducting passenger or cargo carrying operations.
8. Demonstrate an ability to manage and maintain operational documentation and the need
to maintain professional regulatory compliance and currency.Course Learning Outcomes (CLO) developed in this Unit
This Unit of Study will contribute to you attaining the following CLOs:
Associate Degree of Aviation
1. Demonstrate both broad and specialised technical knowledge and skills within the field of professional pilot practice.
3. Critically apply theoretical and practical skills as a professional pilot and to be able to analyse, evaluate and review to provide solutions to non ambiguous, ambiguous and novel complex flight
5. Apply knowledge and skills beyond the minimum specified by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to achieve the rating qualification of Instrument Rating Command Multi Engine Aeroplane.
7. Have the ability to make and initiate high level judgements within the professional pilot framework, and to successfully transmit knowledge, skills, ideas and to communicate with a variety of stakeholder audiences in a range of practical and technical and learning contexts.
8. Demonstrate professional standards at all times that include responsibility and accountability with a pro-active professional pilot work ethic and recognise the need to engage in ongoing professional development.
