Conduct a 2D very high frequency omni-directional radio range 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 approach and determine applicable minima


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


IAL is reviewed and briefed to flight crew in relation to directing entry to the approach, lowest safe altitude (LSALT) or minimum safe altitude (MSA) is maintained prior to entry approach, and tracks, distances, timing and descent limitations are maintained for the approach


Fuel availability and latest divert time procedures are enacted as required


Monitor aid signal integrity


VOR to be used for selected approach is tuned and identified


Warning flags and course deviation indicators (CDI) are monitored throughout selected approach to ensure signal integrity


Conduct initial approach


Altimeter is set to appropriate QNH


Aircraft is manoeuvred to holding fix on an inbound track and at or above route MSA or LSALT is maintained in accordance with aeronautical information publication (AIP) requirements, using the VOR


Conduct holding pattern


Aircraft holding pattern from the holding fix at or above LSALT or MSA is entered in accordance with specified sector entry


Holding pattern is performed in accordance with AIP, using the VOR


Conduct instrument approach procedure


Altimeter QNH is updated and set prior to approach commencement


Instrument approach is conducted in accordance with tolerances specified in AIP using the VOR or VOR/ DME


Landing runway is identified


After establishing visual reference, a visual circling or runway approach is conducted for a landing on selected runway, in accordance with AIP


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 conditions (IMC) is maintained
