INITIAL SKILLS TEST OR REVALIDATION CHECK REPORT FOR AN INSTRUMENT RATING (AEROPLANE & HELICOPTER)
NOTES:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. See the relevant checklist on the SACAA website (www.caa.co.za) for the applicable requirements for each licence or rating. Insert a tick (P) in the applicable box(es) *. This form must be submitted within 30 days of the completion of the skills test or revalidation check, as applicable. In the case of an initial skills test, this form must be accompanied by the application form CA61-01.0. For this form to be accepted by the SACAA, each page must be completed in full and must be initialed by BOTH the examiner and the candidate. For maintenance of competency of an ATPL (A), the revalidation check must be conducted on a multi-engine aeroplane or approved multi-engine FSTD. For maintenance of competency of a CPL (A), the revalidation check must be conducted on an aeroplane with adjustable flaps and variable pitch propeller or turbo-jet engine or in an approved FSTD with similar systems.

Note to Examiners a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i) The correct use of appropriate checklists must be applied at all times. A high level of RT must be exhibited at all times The candidate must be assessed as competent in the ground evaluation section prior to the practical skills test or revalidation check being carried out. It is recommended that the ground evaluation be conducted according to the SACAA recommended format (available on the SACAA website). All flight manoeuvres must be conducted in compliance with the POH and certification of the aircraft used for the skills test or the revalidation check. If a mandatory aspect is omitted, the Examiner must write NOT ASSESSED and motivate the decision in the observations sheet. The column (I) tagged with Q means a mandatory aspect for the initial skills test. The column (R) tagged with Q means a mandatory aspect for the revalidation check. 4-point scale When applying the 4-point scale, award the mark that best describes the weakest element(s) applicable to the candidates performance. 4. Excellent standard
Performance remains well within the qualification standards and flight management skills are excellent. 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 managed.

3. Meets SACAA expected standards


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 managed.

2. Below SACAA expected standards


Occasionally, 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. Performance includes deviations that detract from the overall performance, but are recognized and corrected within an acceptable time frame. Aircraft handling is performed with limited proficiency and/or includes momentary deviations from 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 managed.

1. Not yet competent


Unacceptable deviations from the qualification standards occur, which may include excursions beyond prescribed limits that are not recognized or corrected in a timely manner. Performance includes deviations that adversely affect the overall performance, are repeated, have excessive amplitude, or for which recognition and correction are excessively slow or nonexistent, or the aim of the task was not achieved. Aircraft handling is rough or includes uncorrected or excessive deviations from specified limits. 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 managed.

Should the candidate achieve a 2 in any aspect, he or she must be re-assessed in that ASPECT and the Examiner must indicate the new grading (1,3 or 4). k) This form becomes invalid if an aspect graded with a 2 is not re-assessed and re-graded. l) Should the candidate achieve a 1 in fewer than 5 aspects, he or she must undergo further training in compliance with Regulation SACAR 61.01.5 (9)(a)(b) and (c) and must be re-assessed in those aspects using the same form. m) Should the candidate achieve a 1 in 5 or more aspects, the entire test or check must be repeated using a new form. n) The Examiner must write comments in the observation sheet whenever an aspect is marked as 1. o) During a revalidation check, in the case of a grading of 2, the Examiner may teach in a particular aspect and then immediately re-assess such aspect. p) Should the candidate achieve a 1 in fewer than 5 aspects in an initial skills test, this form must remain in the possession of the ATO until a re-assessment is conducted. q) Should the candidate achieve a 1 in fewer than 5 aspects in a revalidation check, this form must remain in the possession of the Examiner until a re-assessment is conducted. r) Should the candidate achieve a 1 in 5 or more aspects, the Examiner must send this form to the CAA licensing section. s) Should any aspect in section 9 (Airmanship) be assessed as not yet competent (NYC), the entire test or check must be repeated.
