### Which is correct

• A.

A tow plane has the right of way over a glider

• B.

A power driven air craft has the right of way over an helicopter

• C.

An airship has the right of way over a glider

• D.

None of the above

D. None of the above
Explanation
The given options do not provide a correct answer regarding the right of way in aviation. The right of way in aviation is determined by specific rules and regulations established by aviation authorities. These rules consider various factors such as the type of aircraft, their maneuverability, and the potential for collision. Therefore, it is not accurate to state that a tow plane has the right of way over a glider, a power-driven aircraft has the right of way over a helicopter, or an airship has the right of way over a glider. The correct answer is none of the above.

### Cruising VFR flight above 3,000 feet AGL in class "E" as the track 320 degrees, the aircraft shall operate at an

• A.

Even thousand foot altitude

• B.

Odd thousand plus 500 feet

• C.

Odd thousand feet

• D.

Even thousand plus 500 feet

D. Even thousand plus 500 feet
Explanation
When cruising VFR flight above 3,000 feet AGL in class "E" airspace, the aircraft is required to operate at an even thousand foot altitude. In this case, the correct answer is "even thousand plus 500 feet," which means the aircraft should maintain an altitude that is an even thousand feet (such as 4,000, 6,000, etc.) and add 500 feet to that altitude (such as 4,500, 6,500, etc.). This is in accordance with the VFR cruising altitudes rules, which specify that when flying at altitudes of 3,000 feet AGL or above, pilots should fly at altitudes that are an even thousand feet plus 500 feet.

• D.

You just crash and burn and enjoy heaven

A. Alter to the right
Explanation
When two aircraft are approaching head-on and there is a danger of collision, they should alter to the right. This is because the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standard states that in the event of a potential collision, both aircraft should turn to the right to avoid each other. This standard helps to establish a consistent and predictable response in such situations, reducing the risk of accidents in the air.

• A.

An airport owner

• B.

Any other pilot

• C.

A peace office, or immigration officer

• D.

A aircraft instructor

C. A peace office, or immigration officer
Explanation
A person holding a pilot's license is required to produce it to a peace officer or immigration officer. This is because these officers have the authority to verify the validity of the license and ensure compliance with aviation regulations. Airport owners and other pilots may also request to see the license, but the primary responsibility lies with peace officers and immigration officers.

### Which definition is correct with regard to places in Canada where the sun rises and sets daily

• A.

Night-sun's disk is no more than 12 degrees above the horizon

• B.

Night - time starting1/2 hour before sun down and ending 1/2 hour before sun up

• C.

When you can't see with out aid of light

• D.

Daylight is the period of time between sunrise and sunset

B. Night - time starting1/2 hour before sun down and ending 1/2 hour before sun up
Explanation
The correct answer is "night - time starting 1/2 hour before sun down and ending 1/2 hour before sun up." This definition accurately describes the period of time when the sun is below the horizon and it is dark outside. It specifies that it starts half an hour before sunset and ends half an hour before sunrise, indicating the duration of the night.

### Where a VFR flight plan has been filed, the pilot in command shall report arrival to the appropriate Air Traffic Control unit no later than;

• A.

30 minutes after landing.

• B.

1 hour after landing.

• C.

12 hours after landing.

• D.

24 hours after landing.

B. 1 hour after landing.
Explanation
The pilot in command is required to report their arrival to the appropriate Air Traffic Control unit no later than 1 hour after landing when a VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight plan has been filed. This allows the ATC unit to keep track of the aircraft's movements and ensure its safe arrival. Reporting within this timeframe helps maintain effective communication and coordination between the pilot and ATC.

### Pilots of aircraft are responsible for taking such action as is necessary to avoid a collision;

• A.

Unless flying in accordance with an ATC clearance.

• B.

Only when flying in VFR conditions.

• C.

Except when within visual range of the control tower.

• D.

At all times.

D. At all times.
Explanation
The correct answer is "At all times." Pilots of aircraft are always responsible for taking necessary actions to avoid a collision, regardless of the circumstances. This means that even if they are flying in accordance with an ATC clearance, in VFR conditions, or within visual range of the control tower, they still have the ultimate responsibility to prevent a collision.

### Runways at Canadian airports and aerodromes in the southern Domestic Airspace are numbered to indicate, to the nearest even 10 degrees, the runway bearing in degrees ______.

• A.

True.

• B.

Magnetic.

• C.

Compass.

• D.

Grid.

B. Magnetic.
Explanation
The runways at Canadian airports and aerodromes in the southern Domestic Airspace are numbered to indicate the runway bearing in degrees using magnetic direction. Magnetic direction refers to the direction of the Earth's magnetic field at a specific location, which differs from true north due to magnetic declination. By using magnetic bearings, pilots can align their aircraft with the runway more accurately, taking into account the magnetic variations in the area. This helps ensure safe and efficient takeoffs and landings.

### The distress call format is the word ________ repeated three times.

• A.

Pan

• B.

Urgent

• C.

Mayday

• D.

Help

C. Mayday
Explanation
The correct answer is "Mayday" because in distress situations, the international radio communication term "Mayday" is used to indicate a life-threatening emergency. It is repeated three times to ensure clarity and to grab attention. This distress call format is recognized and understood by emergency response teams, allowing them to quickly identify and respond to the urgent situation.

### When in VFR flight within an Altimeter Setting Region, the altimeter should be set to;

• A.

The current altimeter setting of the nearest station along the route of flight.

• B.

29.92" Hg. or 1013.2mb.

• C.

The station pressure of the nearest weather reporting station.

• D.

The standard altimeter setting.

A. The current altimeter setting of the nearest station along the route of flight.
Explanation
When in VFR flight within an Altimeter Setting Region, the altimeter should be set to the current altimeter setting of the nearest station along the route of flight. This is because the altimeter setting provides the correct barometric pressure at the aircraft's altitude, allowing the altimeter to accurately display the aircraft's altitude above mean sea level. By setting the altimeter to the current setting of the nearest station along the route, the pilot ensures that the altimeter is calibrated to the correct pressure for the specific location and altitude of the aircraft.

### The minimum flight visibility for VFR flight in a Control Area is;

• A.

1 mile.

• B.

2 miles.

• C.

3 miles.

• D.

4 miles.

C. 3 miles.
Explanation
The minimum flight visibility for VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight in a Control Area is 3 miles. This means that pilots must be able to see at least 3 miles ahead of them in order to fly under VFR conditions. This requirement ensures that pilots have enough visibility to see and avoid other aircraft and obstacles in the area, maintaining safety during the flight.

Three years after the date of the last entry in the log.

• C.

As long as the aircraft has a valid Certificate of airworthiness.

• D.

The life of the aircraft.

A. Two years after the date of the last entry in the log.
Explanation
Every owner of an aircraft is required to preserve the Aircraft Journey Log for a period of two years after the date of the last entry in the log. This means that the log should be kept for at least two years to ensure that all relevant information regarding the aircraft's journey is recorded and available for reference. It is important to maintain these records for a reasonable period of time to comply with regulations and to have a comprehensive record of the aircraft's maintenance, repairs, and flights.
