Conduct a 2D distance measuring equipment global navigation satellite system instrument approach

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.


Select and prepare for approach


Current instrument approach and landing (IAL) chart for the DME/GNSS approach to be flown is selected


Instrument approach and missed approach procedures are planned


Minimum descent altitude (MDA) is determined


Sector entry to approach and holding pattern is selected, reviewed and briefed to flight crew as appropriate


Minimum altitude, lowest safe altitude (LSALT) or minimum safe altitude (MSA) prior to approach entry, is reviewed and briefed to flight crew in relation to tracks, distances and descent limitations


Applicable approach minima for aircraft performance category and runway to be used, is selected


Holding or diversion action if visual reference is not established, is reviewed and briefed


Fuel availability and latest divert time is selected as required


Altimeter is set to appropriate QNH


Use appropriate tracking aid and distance information, and monitor aid signal integrity


Distance measuring equipment (DME) is tuned and identified


Reference way-point (WPT) for GNSS to be used for tracking inbound, is selected


Distance indication is checked


Approach aid is monitored throughout approach to ensure signal integrity


DME or GNSS is used to provide distance indications for descent via the distance/altitude steps of the approach


Availability of receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) is ensured before descending below LSALT or MSA


Conduct approach procedure


Initial approach is conducted not below the specified limiting altitude for the distance/altitude descent steps


Arrival procedure is conducted while descending on the specified track or sector in accordance with aeronautical information publication (AIP) requirements


Landing runway is identified


Runway or circling approach for a landing is conducted after visual reference is established


Conduct missed approach procedure


Conditions requiring a missed approach are recognised and missed approach is initiated


Aircraft is manoeuvred to missed approach point (MAPt)


Missed approach procedure is conducted in accordance with the IAL chart


Obstacle clearance in instrument meteorological IMC is maintained
