AVAT13013 - Multi Crew Cooperation

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In Multi Crew Cooperation you will learn how to operate as part of a small team and how to lead a flight crew as pilot-in-command or co-pilot on a modern-day flight deck. You will develop the skills and behaviours required to plan, direct and control all aspects of a multi-crew flight. Good and poor multi-crew cooperation will be evaluated and contrasted. You will also evaluate flight deck environmental elements and events. There are two practical assessments during the MCC training to assess student progress during the training and one Self Assessment at the end of the term.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Practical Assessment 35%
2. Practical Assessment 50%
3. Reflective Practice Assignment 15%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
