At the start of the programme you will join HAA and proceed through Initial training, Ground School and Flying Training. You will be examined in accordance with Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulations at the appropriate points and awarded academic credit for completion of:
On completion of the CPL (H) course and the issue of your licence you will take the Professional Orientation module, which combines a CRM course with university study. This will complete Level 5 of the programme.
You will then proceed either to the Flight Instructor Course or to employment with an operator, selecting appropriate modules from the Level 6 options to complete your degree programme.
If you elect to progress to the Flight Instructor (FI) course with HAA you will pursue Route A of the degree programme at Level 6. Two university modules encompass the FI course, Flight Instruction (Helicopter) and Flight Instruction Standardisation (Helicopter). Once you are qualified as an instructor you will continue in employment and complete the remaining two University modules, Evaluating and Managing Risks and Threat and Error Management, which relate to your operational practice and employer based training undertaken during the first 6 months of your instructing career.
If, on achievement of your CPL (H), you proceed directly to employment as a helicopter pilot with an operator, you will follow Route B to complete the degree programme. Two modules, Aircraft Specifics (Helicopter) and Airline Orientation and Integration, relate to entry to employment with a specific operator and detailed content of these modules will be determined in consultation with the employing operator. The remaining two University modules, Evaluating and Managing Risks and Threat and Error Management, relate to your operational practice and employer based training undertaken during the first year of your operational flying career.
