The practical flight training consists of scheduled weekly flight lessons with an FAA Certificated Flight Instructor. These flight lessons include in-flight training, flight simulator training, as well as pre-brief and post-brief ground training.

Course Assignment

Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview.

Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. The student must submit a 2–minute minimum video introduction. The student may use a multi-media platform of choice to record the video. However, Kaltura is recommended. Specific elements stated within the discussion prompt must be included. This will be a graded assignment. The student must also reply to at least 2 classmates’ introductions. Each reply must contain at least 150 words, including a question or a relevant follow-up response to guide the discussion.

Discussions (5)

Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student will post an initial thread of 400-500 words of the assigned Module: Week for each reflection discussion or a video submission for the mini scenario Discussions. In addition, the student must then post 2 replies of 250 words. These are intended to be scholarly dialogues and for each thread, the student must support his/her assertions with proper scholarly support in APA format with sources listed as References at the end of the post. (CLO: A, B, C, D)

As the student progresses through his/her Flight Training Syllabus at his/her Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the identified “Percent of TCO” requirement located within the instructions at the midway point in the course, as well as before the end of course. To help the student stay fully aware of his/her own progress and to keep the professor informed, the student will upload the “Percent of TCO Form” verifying “percent of TCO” progress at the midterm and final week of the course. This form will provide crucial information exchanged between all stakeholders (professor, student, and flight instructor/ FTA).

The purpose of this assignment is to prepare a visual and audio briefing/presentation regarding a provided flight scenario to include applicable references from this Course. The visual briefing/presentation must include a 4-6 minute recorded Narrated PowerPoint presentation thoroughly covering all necessary key elements. Within the presentation, the student must include and cite from appropriate aviation resources. A minimum of 2 sources, APA formatted, is required. (CLO: A, B, C, D)

Personal Reflection Paper Assignment

The student will write a 2-3 page paper (not including title and references) reflecting on his/her flight training experience. This experience includes both the academic work completed as well as the % of TCO completed during flight training at the FTA.

The FTA Student Handbook provides essential information and requirements for the successful completion of the student’s flight training program. This quiz will ask the student to acknowledge that he/she has read the FTA Student Handbook provided in the SOA Flight Student Community (see Explore item in Module 1 for link) as well as any and all information provided within the Liberty University ATLAS website.

This quiz will cover the Learn material for the assigned module: week. This quiz will be open-book/open-notes, contain 1 yes/no question, and will have an 1-hour time limit.

As the student progresses through Flight Training Syllabus at his/her Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the course requirements before the end of the term. To help the student stay fully aware of his/her own progress and to keep the professor informed, the student will submit a Flight Course Log Quiz. This is the student’s opportunity to keep a journal of his/her flight training experience and it will serve as a means for the professor to understand how things are going in flight training.

This quiz will cover the Learn material for the assigned module: week. This quiz will be open-book/open-notes, contain 10 essay questions, and will have an 1-hour time limit.
