Operate in controlled airspace

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.


Apply controlled airspace procedures


Control area (CTA) and control zone (CTR) instructions for departure, climb, transition to cruise (levelling out), cruise, change of levels, descent and visual approach procedures are adhered to


Airways clearance requirements for entering, operating in and departing from CTA and CTR are adhered to


Adverse weather conditions affecting airways clearance maintenance are advised to appropriate air traffic services as required


Air traffic service requirements for a change in level within CTA during routine flight are adhered to


Class C, D and G navigational chart information is identified and interpreted for use within controlled airspace


Separation standards between instrument flight rule (IFR) flights, and IFR and visual flight rule (VFR) flights in various classes of CTA are confirmed and applied


Restricted and danger area separation requirements are identified and maintained


Class C, D and G radio and navigation aid frequencies are identified and used within controlled airspace


Aircraft IFR/VFR separation requirements are maintained


Aircraft altitude and tracking tolerances when operating on an airways clearance are maintained


CTA protection tolerances are maintained


Radar vectoring procedures, including radio procedures and phraseologies, are implemented as required through air traffic services instruction


Airways clearance requirements for operating in all classes of airspace, including lead time required for flight plan submission, contents, clearance void time, and ‘read back’ requirements are complied with


Apply abnormal and emergency situation response procedures


Aircraft is configured to maintain safe operating conditions within controlled airspace requirements during abnormal and emergency situations


Aircraft position and intention broadcasts are made to local and area traffic, including air traffic services


Appropriate radio communication failure or emergency transponder codes during abnormal or emergency situations are selected within CTA and CTR airspace


Air traffic service requirements for a change in level within CTA during abnormal or emergency situations are adhered to
