General Information

Overview

Advanced Aeronautical Practice 2 provides you with the general handling and navigation training for the Command Instrument Rating. Your flight training will be conducted by an approved external flight training provider. You will accumulate the aeronautical experience required for the Multi Engine Endorsement and Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating, both in a simulator and a light aircraft. You will have the opportunity to identify meteorological conditions that require instrument navigation. You will also further develop your critical reflection and self analysis skills enabling you to improve your instrument flight rules and procedures operating skills. During this unit you will keep a reflective journal which will assist you to present a critical analysis of your experience at the end of the unit. After completing this unit you should meet the requirements for the issue of a Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating. You will be required to attend residence school on the Cairns Campus in order to satisfy part of the assessment.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

What can you do to act with integrity?

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
