    The correct answer is Gliding Squadron. This is because joining a Gliding Squadron is typically one of the first requirements for an air cadet. Gliding Squadrons provide cadets with the opportunity to learn and practice gliding skills, which are fundamental to their training as future pilots. By starting with gliding, cadets can gain a basic understanding of flight principles and develop their aviation knowledge and skills before progressing to more advanced training.

  • 8. 

    What is the aircraft that can travel on water called?

    • A.

      Helicopter

    • B.

      Floatplane

    • C.

      WaterCar

    • D.

      Watercraft

    Correct Answer
    B. Floatplane
    Explanation
    A floatplane is an aircraft that is designed to take off and land on water. It has floats or pontoons attached to the fuselage, which provide buoyancy and stability on the water's surface. This allows the aircraft to operate from both land and water, making it versatile for various types of missions such as search and rescue, transportation, and recreational activities. Unlike a helicopter, which uses rotating blades for lift, a floatplane relies on conventional wings and propellers for flight. Therefore, a floatplane is the correct answer for the aircraft that can travel on water.

  • 9. 

    What is used to run the engine of an aircraft among these?

    • A.

      Rotor

    • B.

      Gyro

    • C.

      Gimbal

    • D.

      Scale

    Correct Answer
    A. Rotor
    Explanation
    The rotor is used to run the engine of an aircraft. It is a rotating component that provides the necessary power and thrust to lift the aircraft off the ground and keep it in the air. The rotor is typically found in helicopters and other rotary-wing aircraft, where it generates lift by creating a pressure difference between the upper and lower surfaces as it spins. This lift allows the aircraft to take off vertically and maneuver in various directions.

      Biplane

    • D.

      Air-Viking

    Correct Answer
    A. Jet
    Explanation
    The most sophisticated aircraft is a jet because it utilizes jet propulsion, which allows for faster speeds and greater maneuverability compared to other types of aircraft. Jets also have advanced avionics systems, sophisticated navigation and communication equipment, and are often equipped with state-of-the-art technology for improved safety and efficiency. Additionally, jets are commonly used for military purposes and in commercial aviation, making them the most advanced and widely used type of aircraft in modern times.
