An understanding of aviation legislation is critical for employees in the aviation business. Legislation informs and guides the safety of the industry and how every employee can play their part in contributing to aviation safety. Likewise, all operational aviation workers need an understanding of the limits of human performance and the factors that affect human performance. This unit covers the human factors and aviation legislation modules of the EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance basic knowledge requirements syllabus. In this unit, you will study human performance and how it is affected by various factors such as the working environment, weather, human physiology and psychology. You will study the legislation and regulatory frameworks related to aircraft maintenance and the concept of airworthiness. This unit is delivered at Aviation Australia campuses by Aviation Australia staff in partnership with CQUniversity.
