Conduct flight training

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.


Plan flight training


Trainee records are reviewed and appropriate prerequisite training and performance are confirmed


Training outcomes based on prescribed performance criteria and associated assessment requirements, and required training plans are identified


Flight training exercise is planned to ensure an effective, efficient and safe outcome and lesson plans, learner materials and study guides are developed as required


Hazards are identified, risks are assessed and hazard management is implemented


Potential and actual threats and errors are identified, including those associated with simulation of abnormal or emergency procedures or aircraft mishandling by trainee, and suitable countermeasures are planned


Availability and suitability of flight training resources is confirmed


Environmental conditions suitable for conducting flight training are determined


Conduct pre-flight briefing


Trainee mental and physical preparation for flight training is confirmed


Trainee knowledge required for flight exercise is checked


Trainee is briefed on training objectives, performance criteria and assessment requirements, and actions required during a flight


Trainee is briefed on how flight will be conducted to meet training objectives


Threat and error management (TEM) issues applicable to proposed flight are discussed with trainee and trainee responsibility for managing relevant TEM issues (airmanship) is confirmed


Trainee understanding of training outcomes, knowledge evidence relevant to outcomes, aircraft handling techniques and planned flight sequences is confirmed


Conduct airborne training


Aircraft control handover/takeover procedures are explained and implemented


Instructions and explanations are provided in a clear, concise, systematic and timely manner


Tasks are introduced in manageable portions while being aware of trainee overload


Tasks are demonstrated to trainee and performed to specified standards through coordinated control inputs, without abrupt manoeuvring, using accepted handling techniques and appropriate instructional techniques


Trainee is directed through task performance using appropriate levels of information, explanation and feedback consistent with trainee progress


Trainee is monitored through task performance using appropriate levels of information, explanation and feedback consistent with trainee progress


Segmented tasks are integrated progressively in accordance with established workplace procedures


Interventions are made as required to assist trainee progress or to maintain flight safety


Trainee is provided with sufficient opportunity to practise techniques through assisted and unassisted practice sequences


Trainee cognitive load is assessed, monitored and managed throughout training sequences


Manage trainee performance


Trainee strengths and development needs are identified to trainee through feedback, and additional instruction and demonstration is provided as required to assist trainee


Trainee is encouraged to develop self-assessment skills during debriefing sequences


Training events are noted for recording trainee performance, debriefing and assessment purposes


Manage the flight


Responsibilities as pilot in command (PIC) are managed for safe operation of aircraft


Situational awareness is maintained while providing instruction


Actual or potential threats and errors are identified and managed


Intervention to recover aircraft is applied if an undesired aircraft state is not managed by trainee


Crew resource management (CRM) principles are applied


Conduct post-flight briefing


Trainee achievement against training outcome for lesson, and associated performance criteria and assessment requirements is assessed


Significant details of trainee performance are clearly and accurately described and debriefed


Deficiencies in trainee performance are identified and remedial actions and training requirements are suggested


TEM issues encountered during flight are discussed


Trainee is briefed about details of next training event


Flight results are recorded and post-flight administration is completed in accordance with workplace procedures


Relevant staff are informed about trainee performance and results


Review training


Training effectiveness is evaluated with relevant stakeholders


Final session outcomes are evaluated against desired session outcomes


Review and reflection on instructional performance is conducted


Adjustments to delivery, presentation and content of training and assessment materials are identified and incorporated as required
