General - Point Marking Scale

When applying the 4-point scale, award the mark that best describes the weakest element(s) applicable to the candidate's performance. Remarks to support mark awards of 1 or 2 must link to a safety issue, a qualification standard, or an approved technique or procedure.

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.

  • corrected within an acceptable time frame.
  • 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.

  • excessive amplitude, or for which recognition and correction are excessively slow or nonexistent, or the aim of the task was not achieved.
  • 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.
