Air Precision is capable of conducting various training courses in accordance with the company Part 141 training approvals. The courses range from initial flight training through to operational and aircraft type training courses, with each syllabus requiring a minimum standard prior to completion.
Air Precision utilises experienced and accredited Flight Instructors for training reviews and Flight Examiners for all required flight tests.
To exercise the privileges of a student pilot, there are a number of applications required to be submitted. These applications include registering for an Aviation Reference Number (ARN), an Aviation security Identification Card (ASIC) and submission of a current Passport photo.
Aviation Reference Number (ARN) Application:
An Aviation Reference Number application (Form 1162) is to be completed and submitted to CASA with this form requiring a 100 point identity check for the grant of the ARN.
Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC):
An application is to be submitted to be granted an Aviation Security Identification Card. This can be achieved by submitting an online application. As part of the process, a ten year history of the applicant is required including a comprehensive Police security prior to issue of the card.
An application (Form 61-9PIC) of a current passport photograph is to be completed and submitted to CASA for personal identification purposes. The passport photograph has a validity period of ten (10) years; with it being the pilot’s responsibility to revalidate the passport photograph within this period.
During the early stages of your training, there is a requirement to conduct an aviation medical, that is conducted by a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME).
There are a number of classes of medicals, but only class one and two are applicable to these categories of licence. A class two medical will cover you up to a Private Pilot’s Licence, while the class one is required to exercise the privileges of a Commercial Pilot’s Licence (CPL) and Air Transport Licence (ATPL).
It is recommended that if you intend to training through to a CPL, obtain a class one medical as the examination is more comprehensive and could find any problems that may restrict you from holding a higher class of medical.
Air Precision does not conduct in-house theory but can recommend an accredited theory provider that is able to assist students with all their requirements. Through Advanced Flight Theory (AFT), your theory is able to be completed a number of ways:
The full time course completes each subject over approximately eight weeks with the exams being conducted upon completion of each subject, whereas with the distance learning the student regulates their studies, booking in for each exam when prepared.
It is recommended that if you purchase a distance learning theory kit that you get acquainted with it, study one subject at a time and sit that exam prior to moving on to the next subject. The study guide for the theory kit shall recommend the best approach to take for your studies.
