FAA Private Pilot Test Prep - Quiz

FAA Private Pilot Test is an exam set aside in measuring the knowledge of private pilots which are organized by the FAA. The ability of memorizing this exam's questions is not the right way of preparation because the FAA educators did not have any access to the questions.

      Over-ride

    • B.

      Checkride

    • C.

      Drive test

    • D.

      Main test

    Correct Answer
    B. Checkride
    Explanation
    A practical test commonly known as a checkride is a standard examination that pilots must undergo to obtain their pilot's license. During a checkride, an examiner evaluates the pilot's ability to safely operate an aircraft and assesses their knowledge of aviation regulations and procedures. This test is an essential step in the certification process and ensures that pilots are competent and well-prepared before they are granted their license.

  • 5. 

    What is the purpose of wing flaps?

    • A.

      To prevent crash

    • B.

      For easy flight

    • C.

      To take off at low speed

    • D.

      To take off at high speed

    Correct Answer
    C. To take off at low speed
    Explanation
    Wing flaps are used to increase the lift and decrease the stall speed of an aircraft during takeoff and landing. By extending the flaps, the camber of the wing is increased, creating more lift at slower speeds. This allows the aircraft to take off and land at lower speeds, making it safer and more efficient.

  • 6. 

    Which of these sections is not covered by the exam?

    • A.

      Biology

    • B.

      Interpreting charts

    • C.

      Flying techniques

    • D.

      Flight-related physics

    Correct Answer
    A. Biology
    Explanation
    The question asks which section is not covered by the exam. The options given are Biology, Interpreting charts, Flying techniques, and Flight-related physics. The correct answer is Biology. This means that Biology is not included in the exam, while the other three sections (Interpreting charts, Flying techniques, and Flight-related physics) are covered.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these is odd? 

    • A.

      Weather conditions

    • B.

      Airport operation

    • C.

      Flight regulations

    • D.

      Soil Chemistry

    Correct Answer
    D. Soil Chemistry
    Explanation
    Soil Chemistry is the odd one out because it is the only option that is not related to the field of aviation or weather. The other options, such as Weather conditions, Airport operation, and Flight regulations, all pertain to aviation and are interconnected in some way. However, Soil Chemistry is unrelated to these topics and is more related to the field of agriculture or environmental sciences.

    What thing determines the term 'angle of attack'?

    • A.

      The attitude of pilot

    • B.

      The wing

    • C.

      The chord of the wing

    • D.

      The lateral roll of the wing

    Correct Answer
    C. The chord of the wing
    Explanation
    The term 'angle of attack' is determined by the chord of the wing. The chord is an imaginary straight line that connects the leading edge to the trailing edge of the wing. The angle of attack refers to the angle between the chord line and the oncoming airflow. It is an important parameter as it affects the lift and drag forces acting on the wing, which in turn affect the aircraft's performance and stability.

    What form is the movement of a plane? 

    • A.

      Horizontal

    • B.

    • D.

      Parabolic

    Correct Answer
    D. Parabolic
    Explanation
    The movement of a plane is parabolic because when a plane takes off or lands, it follows a curved trajectory known as a parabolic path. This path allows the plane to gradually gain or lose altitude while maintaining a smooth and efficient flight.
