Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these can't be fixed by an aerospace engineer when faulty? 

    • A.

      Artificial satellites 

    • B.

      Drones 

    • C.

      Aircrafts 

    • D.

      Spacecraft 

    Correct Answer
    B. Drones 
    Explanation
    An aerospace engineer can fix faults in artificial satellites, aircraft, and spacecraft. However, drones are not typically within the scope of an aerospace engineer's expertise. Drones are more commonly repaired by professionals specializing in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS). Therefore, an aerospace engineer would not be the appropriate professional to fix faults in drones.

    Which of these is not part of avionics systems? 

    • A.

      Display and management of multiple systems 

    • B.

      Communications 

    • C.

      Control units

    • D.

      Navigation 

    Correct Answer
    C. Control units
    Explanation
    Control units are not part of avionics systems. Avionics systems primarily include the display and management of multiple systems, communication systems, and navigation systems. Control units, on the other hand, are responsible for controlling and managing various functions within an aircraft, such as engine control units or flight control units. While control units are important for the overall operation of an aircraft, they are not considered part of avionics systems specifically.

    Who coined the term "avionics"? 

    • A.

      Philip Klass

    • B.

      Edwin Walter 

    • C.

      Steve Roberts 

    • D.

      Paul Carson 

    Correct Answer
    A. Philip Klass
    Explanation
    Philip Klass is the correct answer because he is the one who coined the term "avionics". Avionics is a combination of aviation and electronics, and it refers to the electronic systems used in aircraft. Philip Klass, an American aerospace journalist and UFO researcher, first used the term in the 1940s to describe the growing field of electronic aviation technology.

    Which of these is not one of the pioneer countries that started the production of radar systems? 

    • A.

      United Kingdom 

    • B.

      Canada 

    • C.

      United States 

    • D.

      Germany 

    Correct Answer
    B. Canada 
    Explanation
    Canada is not one of the pioneer countries that started the production of radar systems. The United Kingdom, United States, and Germany are recognized as the pioneer countries in radar technology. Canada, although it played a significant role in radar development during World War II, was not among the initial countries that pioneered the production of radar systems.

  • 6. 

    Which of these is not what an aircraft cockpit a location for? 

    • A.

      Avionic equipments 

    • B.

      Avionic instrumentation 

    • C.

      Avionic control 

    • D.

      Avionic navigation 

    Correct Answer
    B. Avionic instrumentation 
    Explanation
    Avionic instrumentation refers to the various instruments and gauges used in an aircraft cockpit to monitor and display important information such as altitude, airspeed, and engine parameters. These instruments are essential for the pilot to safely operate the aircraft. Therefore, avionic instrumentation is indeed a key component of an aircraft cockpit. Hence, the correct answer is Avionic instrumentation.

    Who was the first to invent autopilot? 

    • A.

      Lawrence Sperry 

    • B.

      Jack Jaeckes

    • C.

      James Watkins 

    • D.

      Johnson Reis 

    Correct Answer
    A. Lawrence Sperry 
    Explanation
    Lawrence Sperry was the first to invent autopilot. Autopilot is a system that allows an aircraft or other vehicle to navigate and control itself without direct human intervention. Sperry's invention revolutionized aviation by providing a means for aircraft to fly automatically, reducing the workload on pilots and improving safety.

    What measures the amount of fuel aboard? 

    • A.

      Fuel system 

    • B.

      Collision system 

    • C.

      Flight control system

    Which of these is a weather system? 

    • A.

      Traffic radar 

    • B.

      Weather radar 

    • C.

      Traffic control system 

    • D.

      Traffic alert 

    Correct Answer
    B. Weather radar 
    Explanation
    A weather system refers to a large-scale atmospheric phenomenon that influences weather conditions in a particular area. Weather radar is a technology that uses radio waves to detect and track precipitation, clouds, and other atmospheric conditions. It is specifically designed to monitor and analyze weather patterns, making it the correct answer in this case. Traffic radar, traffic control system, and traffic alert are all related to monitoring and managing traffic, which are not considered weather systems.
