General Information


Advanced Aeronautical Practice 3 will complete your flight training to meet the aeronautical experience requirements of the Commercial Pilot Licence. Your flight training will be conducted by an approved external flight training provider. This will provide you with 100 hours of Pilot In Command (PIC) flight experience. In this unit you will fly as Pilot in Command (PIC) on long distance flights visiting multiple aerodromes in primary controlled zones, regional centres and outback Australia. This capstone unit will give you the opportunity to synthesise and reflect on the theory, knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout your study. As Pilot in Command, you will be able to demonstrate leadership and accountability in a commercial aviation setting. After completing this unit you should have the aeronautical experience required to apply for the Commercial Pilot Licence.

Feedback from U/C


Flight training delays due to prolonged periods of bad weather.


Delays will be caught up in the first half of the year 2023.

Feedback from U/C


Flight provider changes in Melbourne caused long delays in flight training.


Similar changes should be made with a longer transition period to avoid the absence of flight training for students for a prolonged period of time.
