4  Above Standard

Performance remains well within the qualification standards and flight management skills are excellent.

  • Performance is ideal under existing conditions.
  • Aircraft handling is smooth and precise.
  • Technical skills and knowledge exceed the required level of competency.
  • Behaviour indicates continuous and highly accurate situational awareness.
  • Flight management skills are excellent.
  • Safety of flight is assured. Risk is well mitigated.

3  Standard

Minor deviations occur from the qualification standards and performance remains within prescribed limits.

  • Performance meets the recognised standard yet may include deviations that do not detract from the overall performance.
  • Aircraft handling is positive and within specified limits.
  • Technical skills and knowledge meet the required level of competency.
  • Behaviour indicates that situational awareness is maintained.
  • Flight management skills are effective.
  • Safety of flight is maintained. Risk is acceptably mitigated.

2  Basic Standard

Major deviations from the qualification standards occur, which may include momentary excursions beyond prescribed limits but these are recognized and corrected in a timely manner.

  • are recognized and corrected within an acceptable time frame. momentary deviations from specified limits.
  • Technical skills and knowledge reveal limited technical proficiency and/or depth of knowledge.
  • Behaviour indicates lapses in situational awareness that are identified and corrected.
  • Flight management skills are effective but slightly below standard.
  • Safety of flight is not compromised. Risk is poorly mitigated.

1  Below Standard

Unacceptable deviations from the qualification standards occur, which may include excursions beyond prescribed limits that are not recognized or corrected in a timely manner.

  • are repeated, have excessive amplitude, or for which recognition and correction are excessively slow or nonexistent, or the aim of the task was not achieved. specified limits.
  • Technical skills and knowledge reveal unacceptable levels of technical proficiency and/or depth of knowledge.
  • Behaviour indicates lapses in situational awareness that are not identified or corrected.
  • Flight management skills are ineffective.
  • Safety of flight is compromised. Risk is unacceptably mitigated.
