Aircraft Knowledge Quiz: Exam! - Quiz


Do you know anything about aircraft, and would you be able to pass this quiz? A plane is a vehicle that can fly by obtaining support from the air. It challenges the force of gravity by employing either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few instances, the downward thrust from jet engines. Don't let this quiz fly by.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    To travel coast to coast (LA-NY / NY-LA) guaranteed nonstop you must use at MINIMUM the following category of aircraft:

    • A.

      Light Jet

    • B.

      Midsize Jet

    • C.

      Super Midsize Jet

    • D.

      Heavy Jet

    Correct Answer
    C. Super Midsize Jet
    Explanation
    A super midsize jet is the minimum category of aircraft required to travel coast to coast (LA-NY / NY-LA) nonstop. This type of jet has the range and fuel capacity necessary to cover the long distance without making any stops for refueling. Light jets and midsize jets have shorter ranges and may require refueling stops, while heavy jets are larger and may not be necessary for this particular journey. Therefore, a super midsize jet is the most suitable option for a nonstop coast to coast flight.

    Explanation
    The turbo-prop aircraft category is ideal for flights under 3 hours because these aircraft are designed for short-haul flights. Turbo-prop engines are efficient and provide good performance at lower altitudes and slower speeds, making them suitable for shorter flights. Additionally, turbo-prop aircraft have shorter takeoff and landing distances compared to jet aircraft, allowing them to operate in smaller airports and regional destinations, which typically have shorter flight durations.

    The minimum runway length required for safe operation is 5,000 feet. This length is determined based on various factors such as the aircraft's weight, speed, and the prevailing weather conditions. It allows for sufficient runway distance for the aircraft to accelerate for takeoff or decelerate during landing, while also considering any potential obstacles or emergencies that may require additional runway length.
