1
A lighted heliport may be identified by?
 
The color combination of green, yellow, and white flashed by beacons indicates a lighted heliport.
2
The primary purpose of the tail rotor system is to?
 
Counteract the torque effect of the main rotor. The Auxiliary or tail rotor is the anti-torque...
3
During a hover, a helicopter tends to drift in the direction of the tail rotor thrust. This...
 
This movement is generally referred to as translating tendency or drift. The entire helicopter...
4
The upward bending of the rotor blades resulting from the combined forces of lift and centrifugal...
 
The upward bending of the rotor blades caused by the combined forces of lift and centrifugal...
5
In a helicopter, the center of gravity(CG) range is usually located.

 
The exact location and length of the of the CG range is specific for each helicopter but...
6
The lift differential that exists between the advancing main rotor blade and the retreating...
 
Dissymmetry of lift is created by horizontal flight or by wind during hovering flight....
7
Ground resonance is most likely to develop when
 
A series of shocks causes the rotor system to become unbalanced. Ground resonance may develop...
8
The proper action to initiate a quick stop is.
 
Lower the collective, apply aft cyclic. Rapid deceleration or quick stop is initiated by...
9
Takeoff from a slope in a helicopter with skid-type landing gear is normally accomplished by
 
Bringing the helicopter to a level attitude before completely leaving ground. For slope takeoff,...
10
The proper procedure for a slope landing in a helicopter with skid-type landing gear is.
 
When parallel to the slope, slowly lower the upslope skid to the ground prior to lowering the...
11
Density altitude refers to a theoretical air density that exists under standard conditions...
 
Standard conditions at sea level are: Atmospheric pressure:29.92 in of Hg(inches of mercury);...
12
A helicopter pilot should consider using a running takeoff
 
A running takeoff is used when conditions of load and/or density altitude prevent a sustained...
13
Foot pedals in the helicopter cockpit enable the pilot to
 
Foot pedals in the cockpit permit the pilot to increase or decrease tail-rotor thrust, as needed,...
14
If the helicopter is moving forward the advancing blade will be in the
 
With a single main rotor rotating in a counterclockwise direction, the advancing blade will...
15
The method of control by which the pitch of all main rotor blades is varied equally and simultaneously...
 
The collective pitch control lever changes the pitch angle of the main rotor blades simultaneously...
16
The combination of factors that will reduce helicopter performance the most is
 
High altitude, high temperature, and high moisture content contribute to a high density altitude...
17
The most favorable conditions for helicopter performance are the combination of 
 
The most favorable conditions for helicopter performance are the combination of a low-density...
18
During surface taxiing, the helicopter pilot should use the pedals to maintain heading and...
 
The collective pitch controls starting, stopping, and rate of speed. Pedals are used to maintain...
19
The thinner air of higher altitudes causes the airspeed indicator to read  "too low" An...
 
True airspeed may be roughly computed by adding to the indicated airspeed, 2 percent of the...
