      RPM should not drop more than 50 RPM

    • C.

      RPM must not increase more than 50 RPM

    • D.

      RPM must drop by 50 RPM

    Correct Answer
    A. RPM must drop but should not be more than 50 RPM
    Explanation
    During a magneto check on the ground, it is expected that the RPM (revolutions per minute) of the engine will decrease. However, it is important that the drop in RPM does not exceed 50 RPM. This indicates that the magneto system is functioning properly and there are no issues with the ignition system. If the RPM drops by more than 50 RPM, it could indicate a problem with the magneto system that needs to be addressed.

    For short field take-off which of the following flap settings should be used

    • A.

      10°

    • B.

      20°

    • C.

      30°

    • D.

      40°

    Correct Answer
    B. 20°
    Explanation
    For a short field take-off, it is recommended to use a flap setting of 20°. This is because a higher flap setting increases the lift generated by the wings, allowing the aircraft to achieve a steeper climb angle and clear obstacles more effectively. However, using a flap setting that is too high can increase drag and reduce the aircraft's performance. Therefore, 20° is often the optimal flap setting for a short field take-off, providing a good balance between lift and drag.
