AVI Commercial Pilot Regulatory Update

Project scope

 

The purpose of the project is to review Units of Competency in the Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) that contain aspects of ‘spinning’, in particular ‘incipient spin’. These will be updated to address changes to Part 61 Manual of Standards (MOS) Schedule 2 Competency standards and Schedule 5 Flight testing standards.

 

Given the safety risks associated with the application of spinning, it is critical that this is addressed to ensure that training and assessment is appropriate and is consistent with the regulations and standards.

DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Aviation Industry Reference Committee, the TAC has drafted materials for this project and is requesting stakeholder feedback.

 

The Commercial Pilot Regulatory Update project has drafted changes to two core Units of Competency in the Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) where the term ‘incipient spin’ and related criteria have been amended to address changes to CASA regulations Part 61 Manual of Standards (MOS) Schedule 2 Competency standards and Schedule 5 Flight testing standards.

 

The updated units also impact on two Skill Sets and are included as part of the review. In addition, AVIY0017Y Control aircraft in advanced flight manoeuvres has been updated and moved to the elective bank of the qualification following the deletion of a Skill Set.

 

Feedback closed Tuesday, 7 September 2021.

 

Feedback will be collated and discussed at the next TAC meeting.
