Area 100 KSA differs from other learning objectives (LOs) in the verbs used: Show and demonstrate. Its syllabus has three main objectives:
- To firmly embed competency-based training in ground school.
- To provide an effective bridge between theoretical knowledge training and flight training.
- To encourage the development of the ‘thinking pilot’.
These objectives are reached through involvement, using learning by discovery and scenario-based learning, embedded in real-world situations.
The training philosophy behind this could be then summarized as “Involve me and I learn”, shifting from passive learning to active learning.
