Air Transport Pilot Licence Theory 1
Unit code: HES2906A
|Credit points||12.5 Credit Points|
|Contact hours||80 hours (nominally 7 hours per week)|
Aims and objectives
To develop the student’s basic understanding of aircraft systems and aeronautical and aerodynamic factors influencing aircraft performance up to Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) standard. Additionally the student will be introduced to human performance and limitations relevant to Airline operations.
2. Describe the operational limits of both aircraft and human beings at the ATPL level.
3. Demonstrate an understanding of the unit material sufficient to pass the CASA Air Transport Pilot Licence theory examinations for Aerodynamic and Aircraft Systems, and Human Performance and Limitations
- Examination 60%.
- Continuous assessment tests covering the following (40% overall)
o Aerodynamics and Aircraft Systems
o Human Performance and Limitations
CASA ATPL Examinations may be undertaken by the student in addition to the above examinations. Where the student’s aggregate mark for the CASA examinations exceeds that of the continuous assessment component, the CASA mark will be used for that component.
Generic skills outcomes
- Analysis skills,
- Problem solving skills,
- Communications skills,
- Ability to tackle unfamiliar problems, and
- Ability to work independently
- Aerodynamics and Aircraft Systems
- Human Performance and Limitations
