Conduct maintenance test flight activities

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

Reference books for 'Conduct maintenance test flight activities' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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


Review maintenance records and test flight schedule


Maintenance records are reviewed to determine scope of maintenance test flight activities


Maintenance authority briefings are participated in to establish maintenance actions required, components to be test flown and outstanding aircraft unserviceabilities to be reviewed


Test flight schedule requirements are reviewed to determine appropriate maintenance component assessment plan


Plan and brief maintenance test flight sequences


Meteorological conditions are reviewed for suitability to conduct maintenance test flight activities


Flight planning information and flight notifications are advised to appropriate air traffic or support personnel


Aircraft performance is calculated to establish safe and effective flight test operating range of conditions


Planned maintenance test flight sequence is checked against authorised flight test schedules to ensure only necessary components are assessed to determine serviceability


Maintenance test flight sequence is organised based on risk management and time effectiveness principles


Maintenance test flight plan is briefed to all relevant personnel


Conduct pre-flight inspection


Pre-flight operational inspections are conducted to ensure affected aircraft components are prepared for flight test review and assessment


Flight control, engine and system checks that can be functionally performed prior to engine start are checked and/or tested


Aircraft components assessed as unserviceable during pre-flight inspections are recorded and decision is made to proceed with all, or part of, flight test activity


Conduct engine start and ground checks


Engine start sequence is conducted while noting applicable aircraft system cautions, warnings and indication responses in accordance with flight test schedule


Aircraft components assessed as unserviceable during engine start sequences are recorded and decision is made to proceed with all, or part of, flight test activity


Applicable flight control and system checks are performed prior to or immediately on commencement of aircraft taxi


Perform maintenance test flight sequences


Aircraft is flown within areas appropriate for conducting maintenance test flight sequences


Maintenance test flight sequences are performed in a manner that minimises risk to crew or potential damage to aircraft and associated systems


Amendments to flight test schedule are made as required that do not compromise the safety of flight and maximise the effective use of available time


Aircraft components assessed as unserviceable during maintenance test flight sequences are recorded and decision is made to proceed with all, or part of, flight test activity


Aircraft flight controls, engines or system components are reviewed and assessed against flight test schedule requirements and decisions are made on individual or system component serviceability


Aircraft is recovered to appropriate landing areas for post-flight inspections


Post flight engine, flight control and system checks are carried out in accordance with flight test schedule


Aircraft components assessed as unserviceable during post-flight inspections are recorded and included in post-flight reports and maintenance documentation


Interpret test flight data


Information recorded during flight is analysed to determine individual system serviceability in accordance with appropriate technical and flight manual data


Data is reviewed to determine whether aircraft has passed test flight or requires further test flying of all, or part of, flight test schedule


Complete post test flight administration


Aircraft is released back into maintenance authority control


Aircraft components assessed as unserviceable during pre-flight activities, test flight activities and post-flight inspections are recorded in maintenance documentation


Flight test results are communicated to appropriate maintenance authority representative and/or relevant personnel
