Basic Flight Operation



By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Identify the role of international and national aviation regulatory bodies, identify the importance of applicable regulations to aircraft operation and apply regulations relating to aircraft operation in those areas which fall under the duties and responsibilities of the FOO/FD.
  • Identify other aviation organizations and their role in the over-all operation of aircraft in international air navigation.
  • Determine the maximum permissible take-off and landing mass under variable operating conditions using flight manual data.
  • Identify knowledge, skill and attitude requirements indicated in the topic objectives of each subject and to demonstrate an ability to perform the required action identified by the subject in the most efficient and effective manner.
  • Identify basic principles of air traffic management and apply such principles in planning and monitoring flight operations.
  • Demonstrating theoretical knowledge and practical application at every opportunity using actual weather folders in conjunction with simulated or actual aviation situations and/or problems.
  • Demonstrate adequate knowledge of load planning, calculation of payload, including the optimum use of available payload space, load sheet preparation, aircraft balance and longitudinal stability, calculation of center of gravity, structural aspects of aircraft loading, and the issuing of loading instructions within laid down restrictions and limitations, including those imposed by dangerous goods considerations.
  • Recognize that dangerous goods are on a given flight and that they require checking by qualified people. The FOO/FD will be able to brief the pilot-in-command accordingly. For personnel who actually handle, store and load dangerous goods as part of their duties, a more comprehensive dangerous goods course lasting several days is required.
  • Complete an operational flight plan in accordance with laid-down rules and standards.
  • Identify and evaluate routine and emergency airborne situations. He will be able to apply the skills acquired to effectively maintain a flight watch, and monitor fuel consumption, en-route weather including winds, aircraft performance including the limitations imposed by MEL restrictions, in-flight equipment failures, security problems, and the effects of and on hazardous materials, restricted articles, and perishable cargo. He will be familiar with appropriate communications tools including VHF/HF radio, ACARS/data link, SATCOM, and transponder codes, including the various security codes, and with weather conditions and the availability of facilities at en-route
  • Communicate clearly and concisely using voice and data transmission.
  • Apply concepts learned in DRM training in the performance of their duties and responsibilities. They will be able to develop awareness of “good’’ versus “poor” performance, to accept the need for supportive and co-operative interrelationships between FOO/FDs and crew members, and to cope with difficult situations.
  • Identify a security problem and will know who to contact and where to get information and instructions without delay.
