Conduct a 3D instrument landing system 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 and prepare for the approach


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


Navigation system validity and receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM)/space based augmentation system (SBAS) checks are conducted as required


Instrument approach and missed approach procedure is planned and self-briefed or briefed to flight crew as required


Direct entry to the approach is reviewed, briefed to flight crew and evaluated


Entry via holding pattern is reviewed, briefed to flight crew and evaluated


Minimum altitude, lowest safe altitude (LSALT) or minimum safe altitude (MSA) prior to approach entry, is reviewed and briefed to flight crew in relation to tracks, distances, timing and descent limitations


Applicable approach minima for aircraft performance category and runway to be used is selected


Pressure error correction for decision altitude (DA) is selected


Holding or diversion action if visual reference is not established, is reviewed and briefed


Fuel availability and latest divert time is selected as required


Aircraft systems are configured for approach and altimeter is set to appropriate QNH


Monitor aid signal integrity


ILS to be used for selected approach is tuned and identified


Warning flags and course deviation indicators (CDI) for localiser (LLZ) and glide slope is monitored throughout the approach to ensure signal integrity


Locator beacons for approach are tuned and identified


Marker beacon/s are tested and monitored for visual and aural indications during approach


Distance measuring equipment (DME) is tuned and identified or global navigation satellite system (GNSS) is configured for ILS approach as required


DME/GNSS is monitored for distance indications during applicable approach


Conduct initial approach


Altimeter is set to appropriate QNH


Holding fix is identified and aircraft is manoeuvred to appropriate sector entry position


Conduct holding pattern


Holding pattern at or above LSALT or MSA is entered in accordance with specified sector entry


Holding pattern is performed in accordance with instructions in aeronautical information publication (AIP), using the LLZ and any other navigation aids


Conduct approach procedure


Aircraft is tracked to initial approach fix using appropriate tracking aids or radar vectors at or above route MSA or LSALT, to intercept the LLZ track


ILS approach is conducted from initial approach fix with tracking by reference to LLZ and descent by reference to glide path


Marker beacons, DME/GNSS or approved alternative fix are used to provide distance indications


Specified altitude check on glide slope is performed


Continued descent on glide slope to the DA is performed in accordance with AIP


Landing runway is identified


Runway or circling approach for a landing is conducted in accordance with AIP after visual reference is established


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 IMC is maintained
