Operate a multi-engine aeroplane

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



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.


Operate a multi-engine aeroplane in all phases of flight


Normal operations of multi-engine aeroplane type on the ground and in flight are conducted in accordance with the aircraft flight manual (AFM), pilot’s operating handbook (POH) and company operating procedures


Asymmetric operations for all phases of flight are anticipated and contingencies are planned


Plan of action is self-briefed or briefed to crew members to ensure safest outcome in asymmetric operations


Manage engine failure/malfunction in flight


Control of aeroplane is maintained and/or regained during implementation of emergency response procedures


Failed/malfunctioning engine is identified and confirmed


Power set on serviceable engine/s and aeroplane configuration is adjusted to achieve desired aeroplane performance


Failed/malfunctioning engine is managed


Indicated airspeed is maintained above minimum controllable airspeed (Vmca)


Air traffic control (ATC) or another agency capable of assistance is advised of situation and intentions


Recovery or diversion to appropriate aerodrome is evaluated and conducted


Manage engine failure/malfunction after take-off


Engine failure/malfunction is managed after take-off while control of aircraft flight path is maintained


Initial climb not less than best engine out angle of climb speed (VX) or best engine out rate of climb speed (VY) until clear of obstacles, then VY is maintained


Recovery or diversion to appropriate aerodrome is evaluated and conducted


Perform rejected take-off


Take-off is aborted prior to speed beyond which take-off can no longer be safely aborted (V1)or at a decision point during take-off where abort procedure can be initiated and aeroplane stopped on remaining runway/stopway


Power is reduced smoothly and promptly


Spoilers, prop fine/reverse, thrust reverse, wheel brakes and other drag and braking devices are activated


Positive control is maintained to bring aeroplane to a safe stop


Engine failure procedures and/or checklists are initiated and completed


Manage engine failure/malfunction during approach/landing


Control of aeroplane flight path is maintained during implementation of emergency response procedures


Engine inoperative approach is performed


Decision is made to continue or abort approach/landing


Decision height for landing is nominated


ATC or other agency capable of providing assistance is advised of situation and intentions


Smooth, positively-controlled flight profile is flown, from which a controlled landing could be achieved


Positive directional control is maintained and cross-wind corrections are applied during after-landing roll while maintaining centreline within tolerances


Spoilers, prop reverse, thrust reversers, wheel brakes, and other drag or braking devices are applied to bring airplane to a safe stop after landing


Conduct go-around or missed approach with engine failure


Engine failure in a multi-engine aeroplane during a go-around or missed approach is identified and confirmed


Control of aeroplane flight path is maintained during implementation of emergency response procedures


Engine inoperative go-around is performed from decision height
