Crash course study for RA-Aus conversion theory test?

Recommended Posts

I am converting my GFPT to RA-Aus. What would be the fastest way to bone up on the theory? I think it will be bak, air law and radio .

A form to CASA will give you an RPL. Why is there a need to do those theory courses as they were done with GFPT and the RPL should have an easy transition to RPC?

Your local RAAus school will ask you to 'sit' a Converting Pilot Theory test of some 50 questions before you begin to fly an RAAus type. Don't sweat it - your GFPT theory will more than cover it. Just try the test and see if there's anything you may be deficient on. Have the CFI go through your fails, (as in the KDR for GA subjects). I haven't found any GFPT or PPL who didn't breeze through it. happy days,

Yep, that’s what’s happening. Since it’s been 20 odd years since my gfpt like you say maybe I’ll just do it and see what I’ve forgotten

The bane of my life .. Leaving it till the last minute. Use every "requirement" as an opportunity to bone up on facts you should be familiar with. It's not just a matter of passing the exam. Nev

Because they are trying to prove a point, not sure what point.

If you hold a CPL there are no exams to convert. I believe they should produce a guide to explain how their system works. ie exemption to certain rules and reg’s, which are effectively replaced by equivalent ops manual requirements.
