AVAT20003 - Aeronautical Practice 3

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In Aeronautical Practice 3 you will consolidate your solo cross country navigation experience through the synthesis of theory and practice. Your flight training will be provided by an external flight training provider. You will be able to fly solo to a distant aerodrome, land and later return to your training aerodrome. Solo night flights will be conducted in the circuit area to enable you to meet the night solo requirements of the Command Instrument Rating. You will accumulate the minimum aeronautical experience requirements for the Private Pilot Licence. You will also develop analytical, 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.
