1. Pilotage (1104_106)
Heading and groundspeed are calculated using dead reckoning procedures. In flight, they are constantly monitored and corrected by
A - pilotage as observed from checkpoints.
B - the wind triangle.
C - the wet compass and the groundspeed indicator.
2. Loads and Load Factors (lsp_2215)
(Refer to Figure 68 ) The horizontal dashed line from point C to point E represents the
A - ultimate load factor
B - positive limit load factor
C - airspeed range for normal operations
3. Environmental and Health Factors Affecting Pilot Performance (1104_89)
As a pilot, flying for long periods in hot summer temperatures increases the susceptability of dehydration since the
A - dry air at altitude tends to increase the rate of water loss from the body.
B - moist air at altitude helps retain the body`s moisture.
C - temperature decreases with altitude
4. 4 cycle vs 2 cycle (lsp_7143)
Many 4-cycle engines utilize what type of lubrication system?
A - Forced.
B - Gravity.
C - Fuel/oil mixture.
5. Airport Operations (1104_16)
Pilots should state their position on the airport when calling the tower for takeoff
A - from a runway intersection, during instrument conditions.
B - from a runway intersection or the end of the runway.
C - from a runway intersection, only at night
6. Buoyancy (lsp_2317_0607)
During flight in an airship, when is vertical equilibrium established?
A - When buoyancy is greater than airship weight.
B - When buoyancy equals airship weight.
C - When buoyancy is less than airship weight.
7. Forces Acting on the Airplane in Flight (lsp_2233)
The direct cause of every stall is excessive
A - angle of attack
B - density altitude
C - upward vertical velocity
8. The Decision Making Process (1104_73)
A series of judgmental errors which can lead to a human factors-related accident is sometimes referred to as the
A - error chain.
B - course of action.
C - DECIDE model.
9. Takeoff and Landing Performance (lsp_2283_0607)
The most critical conditions of takeoff performance are the result of some combination of high gross weight, altitude, temperature, and
A - unfavorable wind.
B - obstacles surrounding the runway.
C - powerplant systems.
10. Visual Flight Rules (0205_15)
During operations within Class E airspace at altitudes of less than 1,200 feet AGL, the minimum horizontal distance from clouds requirement for flight is
A - 500 feet.
B - 1,000 feet.
C - 2,000 feet.
