Start Practice Exam You Will Not Be Given References In Questions Expand

In law exams or law parts of exams it is extremely unlikely that you will be given any law references.

We sometimes include them in the questions to help candidates towards the beginning of their study find things.

A huge part of law is you knowing how to find things quickly. Read and check the legislation and DO NOT rely on memory for answers.

PPE Navigation Cheat Sheet PDF Expand

This is a one page PDF to get you all the basics in one place.

Calculation of ETP and Asymmetric ETP are for CPL upwards only.

Note only very basic ETP would be in CNAV. Any hard ETP or PNR will be in CFPA exams only. At one stage CASA slipped a few into CNAV, but we believe that error has been rectified.

CASA Feedback Expand

The syllabus areas have been well handled, as evident by its pass rate, especially when the AALW demands a pass score that is 10% higher than for other exams. However, candidates should not be lulled by the fact of AALW being an ‘open book’ exam, as comprehensive studies are necessary prior to sitting the exam. The following areas are noted as requiring careful preparation:

  • Flight and Duty times
  • Maintenance defects, defect reporting and maintenance releases
  • Recency requirements
  • Documentation
  • Flight instruments/Radio and aircraft equipment requirements
  • Regulations pertaining to permissible unserviceabilities
Adam’s Law Study Guide Expand

Top tips as promised for studying ATPL Law, but also applies to CPL Law.  I got mid to high nineties for both exams using this strategy.  Hope it helps.

– Review the permitted materials for the exam (https://www.casa.gov.au/standard-page/atpl-exams)

– It’s no secret what can be asked in the exams, it’s all detailed in the CASA Manual of Standards (https://www.casa.gov.au/standard-page/part-61-manual-standards).  I advise sense checking you have covered all the theory topics before any CASA exam.

– Obtain an AIP & ERSA, and then print your own CAR 1988, CASR Part 61 and CAO legislation rather than buying it – you will save literally hundreds of dollars.  Even buying an inexpensive printer will pay for itself many times over (https://www.casa.gov.au/rules-and-regulations/landing-page/current-rules).  I spent about $50 all up for ATPL covering some Officeworks printing, binders and dividers with some ad hoc printing at work.  For CPL Law you can use an extract such as the PPE one (keep this for ATPL Law as the highlighting you do will come in handy to replicate in your ATPL set).

– I hadn’t done IREX before ATPL Law.  If you haven’t done it, read and familiarize yourself with AIP ENR 1.5 as well as some of the instrument stuff in AIP GEN and IFR requirements in Part 61.  Again, all indicated in the MOS.

– Once you have the legislation, start running questions.   Use PPE and BT or AFT.  Just run lots of questions, over and over to get proficient with different styles of questioning as well as most importantly the legislation.

This is key: as you run the questions, highlight both the content covered as well as the section in the index/contents pages if applicable to that document.  I can’t emphasise enough how important this is.  I genuinely believe CASA want you to become proficient at knowing where in the legislation you can find relevant rules, it might also pop up on your CPL skills test.  This gets you that skill.

– As you run the questions, you will start to memorise some of the content (which is good), but keep religiously referring to the legislation.  You will easily be tripped up by words if you don’t.  You need to get quick at finding ‘where’ the information is rather than just knowing ‘what’ the content is (again I believe this is a key skill CASA wants you to have).

– To supercharge your performance you can split the CAR 1988 into two folders, the first with the highlighted contents pages and anything you think is relevant to flight crew (highlighted or otherwise applicable from the MOS – or just your own opinion), and the second folder for the leftovers (in case you happen to need it).

– As you get nearer the exam, keep running the questions, but to save time you can just write down where you think you’ll find it (e.g. CAOs, AIP ENR, CARs etc).

– As you do the questions, write down or keep a record of the ones you are getting wrong.  In the final days before the exam you need to zero in on these items (this is straight from Matt’s/PPE/studying playbook ?)

– Once you have rinse/repeated all the questions, you will have a good handle on knowing where to go in the legislation at speed.  By running different question banks you will be adaptive to wording of questions.

Flight Rules and Air Law for the Air Transport Pilot
by Aviation Theory Centre

ATPL Law Helicopter Syllabus (tiny)

1.1 The Air Law examination tests Unit 1.5.14 and 1.5.15 of Schedule 3 of the
MOS, but may include items from earlier Units, which are common to both
the Helicopter and Aeroplane. In particular the following items:
• Item 2.2 Aircraft Nationality and Registration.
• Item 2.3 Airworthiness of Aircraft.
• Item 2.4 Personnel Licensing.
• Item 2.5 Rules of the Air.
• Item 2.6 Procedures for Air Navigation.
• Item 2.7 Air Traffic Services.
• Item 2.8 Rules of the Air and Air Traffic Services
• Item 2.9 Aeronautical Information Service
• Item 2.10 Aerodromes.
• Item 2.11 Facilitation.
• Item 2.12 Search and Rescue.
• Item 2.13 Security.
• Item 2.14 Aircraft Accidents and Incidents.
• Item 2.15 Air Service Operations. 1.2 Generally questions are based on multi-crew, turbine powered, high altitude,
high speed aircraft, with emphasis being placed on the knowledge required of
the pilot in command. 1.2.1 These questions will mainly test rules and procedures pertaining to IFR Charter
and RPT flights, both domestic and international. However, candidates are
expected to possess a very sound foundation of Private and VFR operations. 1.2.2 The examination is organised along an ‘open-book’ format, but candidates will
be required in some questions to exercise a high level of competency in
‘factual recall’ on the basic rules and procedures in order to answer the questions
within the time permitted. Join Here
