Pilot a helicopter during winching operations

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

Elements and Performance Criteria



1Plan winching operations

1.1 Tasking requirements are identified

1.2 Crew and equipment required to ensure safe achievement of task are determined

1.3 Helicopter performance data is interpreted and calculated to ensure suitability of aircraft for operations

1.4 Outbound and return flight routes are planned

1.5 Operations at winch site including obstructions, terrain and any factors that may adversely affect lift are planned

1.6 Security and care of passengers and/or equipment to be winched on board is planned

2Conduct pre-flight briefings for winching operations

2.1 Requirements of the winch operation are explained and confirmed

2.2 Location, terrain features (sea state as applicable) and forecast weather conditions are obtained and confirmed

2.3 Winch and role equipment is checked

2.4 Pilot and crew responsibilities and communication procedures are explained

2.5 Mode of lift (e.g. single strop lift, double lift, net deployment, etc.) is explained

2.6 Arrangements for care and security of passengers and/or equipment to be winched are explained

2.7 Winch emergency procedures are explained

3Operate the helicopter during winching operations

3.1 Adequacy of hover power margin and control limits to perform winching operations is checked and maintained

3.2 Site inspection, approach and hover heading are determined in accordance with operational requirements

3.3 Descent and approach is controlled to terminate over winch site (both land and water)

3.4 Control is applied to helicopter to maintain position over winch site

3.5 Winch limitations are observed

3.6 Cable fouling is avoided

3.7 Power is applied to lift external load

3.8 Safety and security of passengers and/or cargo is managed

4Manage abnormal and emergency situations during winching operations

4.1 Helicopter, passengers and load are controlled

4.2 Abnormal or emergency situations are identified and managed in accordance with workplace procedures and Flight Manual/Pilot's Operating Handbook

4.3 Load is jettisoned if/when appropriate

5Conduct post-flight briefings for winching operations

5.1 Operating procedures and outcomes of the flight are reviewed and analysed

5.2 Effectiveness, efficiency and performance of equipment is analysed and reported
