AVAT20001 - Aeronautical Practice 1

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In Aeronautical Practice 1 you will receive basic general handling flight training in the training area and circuit area of the training aerodrome. The flight training will be delivered by an approved external flight training provider. This unit will require you to synthesise the theory you have learnt in earlier study with flight practice while engaging in 30 hours of aeronautical experience in a small general aviation aeroplane. You will practise flight manoeuvres which will consolidate your basic solo circuit and solo area flight skills. This will enable you to fly as pilot in command of an aircraft in both the circuit area and the training area of the training aerodrome. You will analyse and reflect on your flight training in order to develop your ability to identify areas of improvement. You will receive all of the aeronautical experience to be able to apply for your Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL). You will also develop communication and presentation skills to review your flight training. You will be required to attend residential school in order to satisfy part of the assessment.
