  • A new unit Conduct helicopter Pre-Solo Exercises has been developed through merging Taxi helicopter and Control helicopter on the ground units.
  • Another new unit Operate helicopter solo in the circuit area has been developed through the merger of Control helicopter in hovering flight and Take off helicopter and approach to hover units.
  • The remaining six Helicopter Units of Competency have been updated to align with CASA Manual of Standards.
