Aeronautical Practice 4 introduces you to general handling and navigation training required for the Commercial Pilot Licence. Your flight training will be conducted by an approved external flight training provider. You will interpret navigation data, enabling you to pilot an aeroplane under supervision on extended commercial navigation exercises. The unit will develop your critical reflection and self analysis skills to enable you to operate as a pilot in commercial aviation. During the unit you will keep a reflective journal which will assist you to present a critical analysis of your training at the end of the unit. You will also develop your self-management and self-discipline skills to review your flight training. You will be required to attend residence school on the Cairns Campus in order to satisfy part of the assessment.
