Manage remote pilot aircraft systems (RPAS) in abnormal flight situations

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x
Registered Training Organisations

Books
Reference books for 'Manage remote pilot aircraft systems (RPAS) in abnormal flight situations' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


Elements and Performance Criteria

1

Manage loss of thrust after take-off

1.1

Loss of thrust is identified as an abnormal situation

1.2

RPA is controlled at all times according to workplace procedures

1.3

Immediate recovery actions are performed in accordance with Flight Manual/Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH)

1.4

A recovery area within gliding distance is selected, and emergency procedures are performed in accordance with Flight Manual/POH

1.5

Appropriate flight profile is flown to enable controlled recovery

1.6

Controlled recovery is achieved according to workplace procedures

2

Perform forced recovery following loss of thrust

2.1

Control of RPA is maintained at all times

2.2

Immediate actions are performed in accordance with Flight Manual/Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH)

2.3

A recovery area within gliding distance is selected and RPA is manoeuvred to nominated recovery area as applicable

2.4

Consideration is given to restarting the engine when appropriate

2.5

Flight profile is flown from which a controlled recovery could be achieved

2.6

Controlled recovery is achieved according to workplace procedures

3

Recognise and recover from stall

3.1

Stall signs and symptoms are recognised

3.2

Height loss, consistent with RPA type is identified

3.3

RPA altitude and power settings are adjusted to resume normal flight on advent of stall

4

Recognise and recover from an incipient spin

4.1

Incipient spin signs and symptoms are recognized

4.2

Recovery at incipient spin stage (stall with wing drop) is performed and controlled flight is resumed

4.3

Recovery at incipient spin stage during a turn is performed and controlled flight is resumed

5

Conduct precautionary search and recovery

5.1

Search and recovery intentions are communicated to the RPA crew

5.2

Aircraft is configured for appropriate inspection flight profile

5.3

Recovery area is selected and inspected for suitability of safe approach, recovery distance, surface, and obstacle clearance.

6

Manage RPAS abnormal and emergency situations

6.1

Abnormal and emergency situations are identified, and managed in accordance with relevant emergency procedures and regulatory requirements

6.2

Appropriate emergency procedures are followed in accordance with Flight Manual/POH and published procedures while maintaining control of the RPA

6.3

Control of RPA is maintained at all times
