QualificationSCIE Scientific Studies Stage 2
Host OrganisationGlenunga International High School
Course Length2 Semesters (1 year)
Course DescriptionThis course covers the theory component of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Recreational Pilot’s Licence (RPL) and examines students in Basic Aeronautical Knowledge under the guidance of the Command Flight Training. The course incorporates the RPL into Stage 2 Scientific Studies and is concerned principally with Flight Operations. Topics are focused around fixed-wing, single and twin-engine aircraft, and include aviation units and charts, aerodynamics, flight operation and performance, flight planning, meteorology, navigation, radio navigation. Students will use focused software and access our desktop multi-functional Synthetic Flight Trainer (SFT). This simulates different types of aircraft from basic analogue single-engine to full avionics multi-engine turbine propeller aircraft, provides the opportunity to learn standard aviation procedures and the practical mechanisms of flight.
PathwaysStudents who complete Stage 2 Aviation Studies should be eligible for a credit in AERO 1020 Aviation Practice in their first year in the UniSA Bachelor of Aviation. A Recreational Pilot Licence authorises pilots to fly light, single-engine aircraft as the pilot in command, independently of a flying school, without supervision. (To complete the RPL students will need to complete at least 25 hours flying time, which is not part of this course and further independent study).
