Lead formation flight

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 a formation flight


Formation flight tasking requirements are identified


Crews, briefing venue, timing and aircraft availability are coordinated


Task is analysed to determine manoeuvres and formations that ensure safe outcome


Flight route is planned to achieve formation outcomes in the time available and within performance capabilities of the flight


All air traffic, area limitations and navigation requirements are complied with


Actions in abnormal or emergency situations involving the formation are planned


Brief and debrief formation flight crew


Ground and flight manoeuvres are briefed and confirmed with formation flight crews


Timings, route/s, speeds and altitudes to be flown are specified


Deputy formation leader responsibilities are briefed and confirmed


Communication procedures, minimum fuel, abnormal and emergency procedures and method of return for landing are briefed and confirmed


Achievements and any faults or errors that occurred during the formation flight are identified


Guidance and feedback is provided to other formation members during post-flight debrief


Lead a formation


Lead aircraft is manoeuvred using controlled corrective action to ensure a stable platform for pilots flying in formation stations


Formation is safely manoeuvred anticipating and allowing for formation size, proximity to obstructions, terrain, airspace limitations, weather conditions and air traffic, while ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements


Formation is directed and controlled using precise standard radio phraseology, hand and other signal procedures


Formation lost contact procedures are implemented and managed as required


Formation member flight performances and appropriate reactions to problems are monitored


Manage abnormal and emergency situations


Control of aircraft and formation when leading is maintained


Abnormal or emergency situations affecting formation performance are identified and analysed


Course/s of action to resolve abnormal or emergency situations are implemented and monitored


Task workload and flight safety priorities are organised to ensure optimum outcome of the situation
