Instruments and systems indications are critical to the safe and efficient operation of an aircraft. In more modern aircraft, control of the data flow into and out of an aircraft, and within an aircraft, has become critically important. This unit covers part of the aircraft aerodynamics, structure and systems module of the EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance basic knowledge requirements syllabus. In this unit, you will develop knowledge of various aircraft instrumentation systems, including systems that use pitot/static air, systems that use gyroscopic principles, and other instruments that measure parameters such as pressure and temperature. You will also learn about integrated modular avionics systems, cabin intercommunication and networking, and other digital information systems. A necessary part of this unit will be conducting practical tasks with different types of procedures, components and systems. This unit is delivered at Aviation Australia campuses by Aviation Australia staff in partnership with CQUniversity.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

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).
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.
