For information regarding prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.

Rationale

The purpose of this course is to integrate the information learned during AVIA 430 (Multi-Engine Theory) into the practical FAA requirements to become a certified multi-engine pilot. The requirements of this course come from FAA Air Circular AC 61-65E regulations. Completion of this course will prepare the student to take the FAA in-flight practical check flight.

Course Assignment

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

Students must submit a 2–3 minute video introduction. Students may use a multi-media platform of choice to record your video. However, Kaltura is recommended. Specific elements stated within the Discussion prompt must be included. This will be a graded assignment. Students 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 are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student must complete various Discussions in this course. Each student will post an initial thread of 400-500 words of the assigned Module: Week for each Discussion. 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, E)

The Flight Affiliate Handbook provides essential information to the successful completion of the flight training program and requirements. This quiz will ask the student to acknowledge that they have read the FTA Handbook provided to them via the FTA Welcome Letter as well as any and all information provided to them on the Liberty University Flight Training Affiliate Program website.

As the student progresses through their Flight Training Syllabus at their Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the “Percent of TCO” requirement before the end of the course. To help the student stay fully aware of their 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 personally created 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)

In order to pass this class, the student must complete their Multi-Engine training at an approved Flight Training Affiliate (FTA). Once complete, the student must submit their Part 141 Graduation Certificate and either a copy of the FAA Multi-Engine Add-On Rating (front and back), or a temporary FAA Multi-Engine Add-On Rating. (CLO: A, B, C, D)

As the student progresses through Flight Training Syllabus at their 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 their 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 their flight training experience and it will serve as a means for the professor to understand how things are going in flight training.

Each quiz will cover the Learn material for the assigned Module: Week. Each quiz will be open-book/open-notes, contain various question types, and have a set time limit. (CLO: A, B, C, D)
