  • 2. 
    V2 is something called out during takeoff. What does V2 mean?
    • A. 

      V2 is when the plane has enough speed to lift of the ground

    • B. 

      V2 is when the end of the runway is near

    • C. 

      V2 is when the plane is going too fast to safely abort takeoff

    • D. 

      V2 is when the aircraft can safely climb with the thrust of only one engine

  • 3.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    When this Boeing aircraft was originally launched, it wasn't widely used and wasn't a success at first. However, it is now one of the most used Boeing aircraft around today. What aircraft is it?

    During the event of a stall, what should the pilot do to safely recover the aircraft?
    • A. 

      Immediately put the aircraft in a climb to gain altitude

    • B. 

      Reduce thrust to idol to loose airspeed

    • C. 

      Increase thrust to full and put the aircraft in a dive to gain speed. The pilot may also use light flaps to gain lift.

    • D. 

      Restart all of the engines on the aircraft
