Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    VOR generates two signals on the carrier frequency?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    30 Hz reference signal and a 9960 Hz subcarrier.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The Reference and Variable signals are in phase at 180deg magnetic?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect because the reference and variable signals cannot be in phase at 180 degrees magnetic. In-phase signals have a phase difference of 0 degrees, while signals with a phase difference of 180 degrees are said to be in opposite phase or out of phase.

    • A.

      Frequency Modulated

  • 7. 

    RMI comapss information is referred as?

    • A.

      Bearing needle

    • B.

      Vertical gyro

    • C.

      Horizontal gyro

    • D.

      Slaved compass

    Correct Answer
    D. Slaved compass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Slaved compass". In RMI (Radio Magnetic Indicator), the compass information is referred to as the slaved compass. A slaved compass is a type of compass that is electronically connected to the aircraft's navigation system. It receives signals from the navigation system and automatically adjusts its readings to compensate for any deviations caused by the aircraft's magnetic field. This ensures accurate and reliable compass information for the pilot during flight.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The Standby compass indicates True North?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. The standby compass in an aircraft typically indicates Magnetic North, not True North. The difference between True North (geographic north pole) and Magnetic North (where the Earth's magnetic field points vertically down) is known as magnetic variation or declination, which must be considered for accurate navigation.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The pointers on the RMI indicate?

    • A.

      Radials

    • B.

      Bearing

    • C.

      Heading

    Correct Answer
    B. Bearing
    Explanation
    The pointers on the RMI indicate the bearing. The bearing is the direction from the aircraft to a specific point on the ground. The RMI (Radio Magnetic Indicator) is a navigation instrument that displays the aircraft's magnetic heading and the bearing to a selected navigation station. It helps the pilot determine the direction to fly in order to reach their desired destination.

    DME is usually used in conjuction with:

    • A.

      ADF

    • B.

      ILS

    • C.

      VOR

    Correct Answer
    C. VOR
    Explanation
    DME (Distance Measuring Equipment) is typically used in conjunction with VOR (VHF Omnidirectional Range). VOR provides the aircraft with the direction or bearing to a ground-based station, while DME provides the distance from the aircraft to that station. By using both systems together, pilots can determine their exact position in relation to the VOR station, allowing for accurate navigation and flight planning. ADF (Automatic Direction Finder) and ILS (Instrument Landing System) are not typically used in conjunction with DME.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    DME supplies range information up to how many miles?

    • A.

      50 NM

    • B.

      125 NM

    • C.

      250 NM

    Correct Answer
    C. 250 NM
    Explanation
    DME (Distance Measuring Equipment) supplies range information up to 250 NM (nautical miles). This means that the DME can provide accurate distance measurements for objects or locations that are within a radius of 250 NM from the aircraft.

  • 12. 

    The VOR frequency range is 9510 Hz to 10410 Hz

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The VOR frequency range is between 108 to 117.95 MHz

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What is 'Slant Range'?

    • A.

      Same as Ground Distance

    • B.

      Actual line-of-sight distance to the station

    • C.

      Range to the horizon in NM

    Correct Answer
    B. Actual line-of-sight distance to the station
    Explanation
    Slant Range refers to the actual line-of-sight distance to the station. It is the distance between the observer and the target, measured along the line of sight. This measurement takes into account the elevation and the angle between the observer and the target, providing an accurate distance measurement. It is different from Ground Distance, which refers to the distance measured on a flat surface, and Range to the horizon in NM, which refers to the distance to the point where the Earth's curvature obstructs the line of sight.

  • 14. 

    What is the DME frequency range?

    • A.

      960-1215 Mhz

    • B.

      108-112 Mhz

    • C.

      200-1700 Mhz

    Correct Answer
    A. 960-1215 Mhz
    Explanation
    DME transponders transmit on a channel in the 962 to 1150 MHz range and receive on a corresponding channel between 962 to 1213 MHz.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    An HSI uses what type of gyroscope?

    • A.

      Vertical Gyro

    • B.

      Horizontal Gyro

    • C.

      Standby Gyro

    Correct Answer
    B. Horizontal Gyro
    Explanation
    An HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) uses a Horizontal Gyro. This type of gyroscope is specifically designed to measure the aircraft's roll and pitch movements, providing accurate and reliable information about the aircraft's attitude and heading. The Horizontal Gyro is an essential component of the HSI, which displays the aircraft's heading and navigation information to the pilot in a clear and intuitive manner.
