V.E.T. in Schools Pilot Training Course
Modules taken from AVI40108 Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Aeroplane Licence)
This course is a two year program delivered by Gawne Aviation, Shepparton. The Student Pilot Training Course is aimed at students who have an interest in training for a career as a pilot, using the 150 hour Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), Approved Commercial Pilot Licence course, with modules taken from the AVI40108 Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Aeroplane Licence). The course is also suitable for those with an interest in obtaining the Private Pilot Licence.
The course is very flexible and allows the student to study for the General Flying Progress Test (GFPT) - the first stage of pilot training, over two years. For those students who wish to complete the course in one year the opportunity exists to continue their studies by completing the theory and flying towards the full Private Pilot Licence during the second year. For students to complete the GFPT over one year would require them to fly every week of the school year. Because this is a Certificate IV course, students who satisfactorily complete 180 hours of training (both flying and ground studies), in each of the two years, towards the GFPT, will be credited with one 1-2 sequence for the first year, and a 3-4 sequence for the second year towards their VCE.
The Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Aeroplane Licence) is appropriate for people seeking to work in the commercial airline industry. Pilots operate aircraft that transport people, cargo and mail to destinations throughout Australia and around the world. Pilots are ultimately responsible for the safety of their passengers, crew and cargo.
Pilot work may also include cargo, survey, charter, spotter, agricultural or flight instructor. Often, those flying smaller charters are responsible for loading and unloading passengers and cargo. Pilots fly during both day and night, and in a variety of weather conditions and climates.
The course will focus on the fundament building blocks of flying training, those aspects of a pilots skill base that are an essential foundation to the more advanced aspects of the course for those considering further qualifications in the aviation industry. The course will begin with elementary principles of flight required for the issue of a GFPT, and include all aspects of theory required to support the issue of this licence level.
The aim of the VET aviation course (as part of the 150 hour Approved Commercial pilot course) is to provide students with the opportunity to work towards or complete a General Flying Progress Test (GFPT). The General Flying Progress Test is the first stage in a pilot’s training that ultimately leads to the gaining of a Commercial Pilot Licence, which is the licence level at which a pilot may gain employment and be paid as a pilot.
This course includes:
Basic aircraft handling skills on the ground and in the air
15 hours minimum dual flying experience
5 hours minimum solo flying experience
1 hour synthetic trainer experience
Basic Aeronautical Knowledge (BAK Theory Exam)
A Nationally Accredited Qualification
Vocational opportunities and career paths in the aviation industry
The flight test will be conducted on the aircraft that the student has completed their training in. A Statement of Attainment will be issued for the units of training completed at this level. These units may contribute to the issue of the Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Aeroplane Licence), if the student wishes to undertake that course
