    Knowledge Deficiency report (KDR)

    NZCAA AC61-3

    “An examination knowledge deficiency report (KDR) is a report issued on completion of a written examination that details areas where questions were answered incorrectly. The applicant for a private pilot licence flight test must provide the flight examiner with written examination KDRs and evidence of knowledge improvement in accordance with rule 61.21(a)(5). These KDRs, with content acknowledged against the relevant rule reference(s), must be certified prior to the flight test by a Category A or B flight instructor that the applicant has been examined in these areas and their knowledge has improved. The flight examiner conducting the flight test will test the applicant’s knowledge of the written examination subject areas including but not limited to items included in the KDRs. The private pilot licence written examinations are based on the syllabuses detailed in Appendix II of this advisory circular. All applicants are required to hold an approved English Language Proficiency credit, this credit will be required to at least Level 4.”

    CBT Systems on-line learning programs provides students with the ideal platform for subject revision where KDR’s have been identified. CBT Systems provides sufficient time (at least 2 weeks) at the completion of the Aspeq examinations for students to review the relevant CBT Systems material (CBT on-line Programs). In addition, Student Reference Manuals are provided for each subject to allow students to review subject matter indefinitely.

    It is suggested that Students review the CBT Systems KDR Policy Document and where NCEA Credits are requested, the CBT Systems Policy Document must be complied with.
