Operate aircraft in the traffic pattern at night

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.


Control aircraft on the ground


Instrument and cockpit lighting are adjusted to an appropriate level for taxiing


Air traffic control (ATC) instructions and manoeuvres of an aircraft on the ground at night within the approved movement area as defined by aerodrome ground lighting, are complied with


Aircraft lighting to identify obstructions, other aircraft, and taxiway and runway limits is used as required


Aircraft is taxied at a speed that allows for an adequate lookout to be maintained to avoid obstructions


Activate pilot activated lighting


Appropriate radiotelephone frequency is utilised to activate PAL system when within radio range


PAL system is activated using appropriate transmit sequence


Wind indicator lighting is monitored to determine end of activation period


Take off at night


Aircraft is lined up correctly in centre of runway in take-off direction


Line up checks appropriate to night take-off are completed


Take-off by reference to flare path/runway lighting and aircraft instruments is executed


Aircraft is rotated at manufacturer recommended speed


Aircraft control and climb attitude is completed solely by reference to instruments


Alignment with runway by visual reference and lookout is established and maintained


Post-departure checks are performed at a safe height after take-off


Manage emergency situations at night


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


Emergency situation is managed in accordance with the aircraft flight manual (AFM), pilot’s operating handbook (POH) and aeronautical information publication (AIP)


Electrical lighting and power sources are monitored


Electrical lighting and power source emergency procedures are implemented as required


Perform a go-around


Need to conduct a go-around is recognised


Go-around is performed from any point on base and final approach legs


Land at night, with and without the use of aircraft landing lights


Circuit entry and pattern are performed with reference to runway environment


Safe altitude is maintained by reference to aircraft instruments and runway lighting


Aircraft is safely landed at night with and without landing lights


After landing checks are performed
