Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Frost covering the upper surface of an airplane wing usually will cause:

    • A.

      The airplane to stall at an angle of attack that is higher than normal

    • B.

      The airplane to stall at an angle of attack that is lower than normal

    • C.

      Drag factors so large that sufficient speed cannot be obtained for takeoff

    Correct Answer
    B. The airplane to stall at an angle of attack that is lower than normal
    Explanation
    When frost covers the upper surface of an airplane wing, it disrupts the smooth flow of air over the wing. This disrupts the generation of lift, which is necessary to keep the airplane flying. As a result, the airplane will stall at a lower angle of attack than normal. This means that the airplane will lose lift and potentially lose control at a lower angle of attack, making it more susceptible to stalling.

    In a rapid recovery from a dive, the effects of load factor would cause the stall speed:

    • A.

      Increase

    • B.

      Decrease

    • C.

      Not vary

    Correct Answer
    A. Increase
    Explanation
    During a rapid recovery from a dive, the load factor increases. Load factor is the ratio of the lift force acting on an aircraft to its weight. As load factor increases, the stall speed also increases. This is because the increased load factor puts more stress on the wings, requiring a higher airspeed to generate enough lift and prevent the aircraft from stalling. Therefore, the correct answer is "Increase".

  • 3. 

    To generate the same amount of lift as altitude is increased, an airplane must be flown at:

    • A.

      The same true airspeed regardless of angle of attack

    • B.

      A lower true airspeed and a greater angle of attack

    • C.

      A higher true airspeed for any given angle of attack

    Correct Answer
    C. A higher true airspeed for any given angle of attack
    Explanation
    As altitude increases, the air density decreases. In order to generate the same amount of lift, the airplane must compensate for the reduced air density by increasing its true airspeed. This is because lift is directly proportional to airspeed. Therefore, to maintain the same lift, the airplane must fly at a higher true airspeed for any given angle of attack. The angle of attack does not change in this scenario, as it is the angle between the wing's chord line and the oncoming airflow.

  • 4. 

    As the angle of bank is increased, the vertical component of lift:

    • A.

      Decreases and the horizontal component of lift increases

    • B.

      Increases and the horizontal component of lift decreases

    • C.

      Decreases and the horizontal component of lift remains constant

    Correct Answer
    A. Decreases and the horizontal component of lift increases
    Explanation
    As the angle of bank is increased, the vertical component of lift decreases because some of the lift is now being used to counteract the increased gravitational force acting perpendicular to the wings. At the same time, the horizontal component of lift increases because a greater portion of the lift is now directed towards providing the necessary centripetal force to keep the aircraft in a curved path. Therefore, as the angle of bank increases, the vertical component of lift decreases and the horizontal component of lift increases.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What changes in airplane longitudinal control must be made to maintain altitude while the airspeed is being decreased?

    • A.

      Increase the angle of attack to produce more lift than drag

    • B.

      Increase the angle of attack to compensate for the decreasing lift

    • C.

      Decrease the angle of attack to compensate for the increasing drag

    Correct Answer
    B. Increase the angle of attack to compensate for the decreasing lift
    Explanation
    To maintain altitude while decreasing airspeed, the airplane needs to compensate for the decreasing lift. As airspeed decreases, the lift generated by the wings also decreases. By increasing the angle of attack, the airplane can create more lift than drag, which helps to counteract the decreasing lift and maintain altitude. This adjustment allows the airplane to maintain its height even with a lower airspeed.

  • 6. 

    Longitudinal dynamic instability in an airplane can be identified by:

    • A.

      Bank oscillations becoming progressively steeper

    • B.

      Pitch oscillations becoming progressively steeper

    • C.

      Trilatitudinal roll oscillations becoming steeper

    Correct Answer
    B. Pitch oscillations becoming progressively steeper
    Explanation
    Longitudinal dynamic instability in an airplane can be identified by pitch oscillations becoming progressively steeper. This means that the nose of the aircraft is repeatedly pitching up and down in a more pronounced manner. This instability can be dangerous as it can lead to loss of control and potentially result in a crash. It is important for pilots to be able to recognize and correct this instability to ensure the safety of the aircraft and its occupants.

    If the airplane attitude remains in a new position after the elevator control is pressed forward and released, the airplane displays:

    • A.

      Neutral longitudinal static stability

    • B.

      Positive longitudinal static stability

    • C.

      Neutral longitudinal dynamic stability

    Correct Answer
    A. Neutral longitudinal static stability
    Explanation
    If the airplane attitude remains in a new position after the elevator control is pressed forward and released, it indicates neutral longitudinal static stability. This means that the airplane will neither tend to return to its original position nor continue to move away from it. It will simply remain in the new position without any tendency to stabilize or destabilize itself longitudinally.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If the airplane attitude initially tends to return to its original position after the elevator control is pressed forward and released, the airplane displays:

    • A.

      Positive dynamic stability

    • B.

      Positive static stability

    • C.

      Neutral dynamic stability

    Correct Answer
    B. Positive static stability
    Explanation
    Positive static stability refers to the tendency of an aircraft to return to its original position after a disturbance. In this case, when the elevator control is pressed forward and released, the airplane attitude initially tends to return to its original position. This indicates that the airplane has positive static stability, as it is stable and has a natural inclination to return to its equilibrium state.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If an airplane is loaded to the rear of its CG range, it will tend to be unstable about its:

    • A.

      Vertical axis

    • B.

      Lateral axis

    • C.

      Longitudinal axis

    Correct Answer
    B. Lateral axis
    Explanation
    If an airplane is loaded to the rear of its CG range, it will tend to be unstable about its lateral axis. This means that it will have a tendency to roll or bank sideways. This is because the center of gravity (CG) is located behind the center of lift, causing an imbalance in the lateral stability of the aircraft. As a result, the airplane may become difficult to control and prone to rolling motions.

    If a standard rate turn is maintained, how long would it take to turn 360°?

    • A.

      1 minute

    • B.

      2 minutes

    • C.

      3 minutes

    Correct Answer
    B. 2 minutes
    Explanation
    A standard rate turn is typically defined as a turn with a bank angle of 15 degrees per second. Since a full circle is 360 degrees, it would take 24 seconds to complete a 360-degree turn at a standard rate. However, the options provided are in minutes, so we need to convert seconds to minutes. There are 60 seconds in a minute, so 24 seconds is equal to 0.4 minutes. Therefore, it would take approximately 0.4 minutes, which is equivalent to 2 minutes, to complete a 360-degree turn at a standard rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    While holding the angle of bank constant in a level turn, if the rate of turn is varied the load factor would

    • A.

      Remain constant regardless of air density and the resultant lift vector

    • B.

      Vary depending upon speed and air density provided the resultant lift vector varies proportionately

    • C.

      Vary depending upon the resultant lift vector

    Correct Answer
    A. Remain constant regardless of air density and the resultant lift vector
    Explanation
    In a level turn, the load factor refers to the ratio of the lift force to the weight of the aircraft. When holding the angle of bank constant, the load factor remains constant regardless of air density and the resultant lift vector. This means that even if the air density changes or the direction of the lift vector changes, the load factor will not be affected.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    To increase the rate of turn and at the same time decrease the radius, a pilot should:

    • A.

      Maintain the bank and decrease airspeed

    • B.

      Increase the bank and increase airspeed

    • C.

      Increase the bank and decrease airspeed

    Correct Answer
    C. Increase the bank and decrease airspeed
    Explanation
    To increase the rate of turn and decrease the radius, a pilot should increase the bank and decrease airspeed. Increasing the bank angle increases the lift force acting perpendicular to the wings, allowing the aircraft to turn more efficiently. Decreasing airspeed reduces the centrifugal force acting on the aircraft, resulting in a tighter turn radius. Therefore, increasing the bank angle and decreasing airspeed simultaneously will achieve the desired outcome of increasing the rate of turn and decreasing the turn radius.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which is correct with respect to rate and radius of turn for an airplane flown in a coordinated turn at a constant altitude?

    • A.

      For a specific angle of bank and airspeed, the rate and radius of turn will not vary

    • B.

      To maintain a steady rate of turn, the angle of bank must be increased as the airspeed is decreased

    • C.

      The faster the true airspeed, the faster the rate and larger the radius of turn regardless of the angle of bank

    Correct Answer
    A. For a specific angle of bank and airspeed, the rate and radius of turn will not vary
    Explanation
    In a coordinated turn at a constant altitude, the rate and radius of turn will not vary for a specific angle of bank and airspeed. This means that as long as the angle of bank and airspeed remain constant, the airplane will maintain a consistent rate and radius of turn. This is because the forces acting on the airplane, such as gravity and lift, are balanced in a coordinated turn, resulting in a consistent turn without any changes in rate or radius.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    While maintaining a constant angle of bank and altitude in a coordinated turn, an increase in airspeed will

    • A.

      Decrease the rate of turn resulting in a decreased load factor

    • B.

      Decrease the rate of turn resulting in no change in load factor

    • C.

      Increase the rate of turn resulting in no change in load factor

    Correct Answer
    B. Decrease the rate of turn resulting in no change in load factor
    Explanation
    When maintaining a constant angle of bank and altitude in a coordinated turn, an increase in airspeed will result in a decrease in the rate of turn. This is because at higher airspeeds, the lift generated by the wings increases, which reduces the need for a higher angle of bank to maintain the same rate of turn. However, the load factor, which is the ratio of the lift to the weight of the aircraft, remains unchanged.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    If an aircraft with a gross weight of 2,000 pounds was subjected to a 60° constant altitude bank, the total load would be:

    • A.

      3,000 pounds

    • B.

      4,000 pounds

    • C.

      12,000 pounds

    Correct Answer
    B. 4,000 pounds
    Explanation
    When an aircraft is subjected to a constant altitude bank, the total load on the aircraft increases. This is because the lift force required to counteract the increased gravitational force acting on the aircraft also increases. In this case, the aircraft with a gross weight of 2,000 pounds would experience a total load of 4,000 pounds when subjected to a 60° constant altitude bank.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    If the airspeed is increased from 90 knots to 135 knots during a level 60° banked turn, the load factor will:

    • A.

      Increase as well as the stall speed

    • B.

      Decrease and the stall speed will increase

    • C.

      Remain the same but the radius of turn will increase

    Correct Answer
    C. Remain the same but the radius of turn will increase
    Explanation
    When the airspeed is increased from 90 knots to 135 knots during a level 60° banked turn, the load factor will remain the same. The load factor is determined by the angle of bank and remains constant as long as the angle of bank does not change. However, the radius of turn will increase. This is because a higher airspeed provides more lift, allowing the aircraft to maintain the same load factor while increasing the radius of the turn. The stall speed, on the other hand, is not affected by the increase in airspeed.

    Baggage weighing 90 pounds is placed in a normal category airplane’s baggage compartment which is placarded at 100 pounds. If this airplane is subjected to a positive load factor of 3.5 Gs, the total load of the baggage would be:

    • A.

      315 pounds and would be excessive

    • B.

      315 pounds and would not be excessive

    • C.

      350 pounds and would not be excessive

    Correct Answer
    B. 315 pounds and would not be excessive
    Explanation
    When an airplane is subjected to a positive load factor of 3.5 Gs, it means that the force acting on the airplane is 3.5 times the force of gravity. In this case, the weight of the baggage is 90 pounds. When subjected to a load factor of 3.5 Gs, the effective weight of the baggage would be 90 pounds multiplied by 3.5, which equals 315 pounds. Since the placard in the baggage compartment indicates a maximum weight of 100 pounds, the total load of 315 pounds would not be excessive.

    At high altitudes, an excessively rich mixture will cause the

    • A.

      Engine to overheat

    • B.

      Fouling of spark plugs

    • C.

      Engine to operate smoother even though fuel consumption is increasing

    Correct Answer
    B. Fouling of spark plugs
    Explanation
    An excessively rich mixture refers to a fuel-air mixture that has more fuel than necessary for combustion. In high altitudes, where the air is thinner, the oxygen content is reduced. When an excessively rich mixture is used in such conditions, it can lead to incomplete combustion and the fuel not being fully burned. This can result in the fouling of spark plugs, as the unburned fuel can accumulate on the spark plug electrodes, causing them to become coated or "fouled". Fouled spark plugs can lead to misfires, reduced engine performance, and potentially damage to the engine.

    For take-off, the blade angle of a controllable-pitch propeller should be set at a:

    • A.

      Small angle of attack and high RPM

    • B.

      Large angle of attack and low RPM

    • C.

      Large angle of attack and high RPM

    Correct Answer
    A. Small angle of attack and high RPM
    Explanation
    During take-off, it is important for the blade angle of a controllable-pitch propeller to be set at a small angle of attack and high RPM. This configuration allows the propeller to generate maximum thrust by creating a high airflow velocity over the blades. The small angle of attack reduces drag, while the high RPM ensures that the engine is operating at its peak power output. This combination results in efficient propulsion and optimal performance during take-off.

    To establish a climb after takeoff in an aircraft equipped with a constant-speed propeller, the output of the engine is reduced to climb power by decreasing manifold pressure and

    • A.

      Increasing RPM by decreasing propeller blade angle

    • B.

      Decreasing RPM by decreasing propeller blade angle

    • C.

      Decreasing RPM by increasing propeller blade angle

    Correct Answer
    C. Decreasing RPM by increasing propeller blade angle
    Explanation
    To establish a climb after takeoff in an aircraft equipped with a constant-speed propeller, the output of the engine is reduced to climb power by decreasing manifold pressure and increasing RPM by increasing propeller blade angle. By decreasing the manifold pressure, the engine's power output is reduced. To compensate for this reduction in power, the RPM is increased by increasing the propeller blade angle. This allows the propeller to maintain a higher rotational speed, generating more thrust and enabling the aircraft to climb.

    To determine pressure altitude prior to takeoff, the altimeter should be set to:

    • A.

      The current altimeter setting

    • B.

      29.92” Hg and the altimeter indication noted

    • C.

      The field elevation and the pressure reading in the altimeter setting window noted

    Correct Answer
    B. 29.92” Hg and the altimeter indication noted
    Explanation
    To determine pressure altitude prior to takeoff, the altimeter should be set to 29.92" Hg and the altimeter indication noted. This is because 29.92" Hg is the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level, and setting the altimeter to this value allows for an accurate measurement of pressure altitude. The altimeter indication is noted to ensure that any changes in atmospheric pressure during the flight can be accounted for and the correct altitude can be maintained.

    Given: Pressure altitude ............................................ 5,000 ft True air temperature ....................................... +30°C From the conditions given, the approximate density altitude is:

    • A.

      7,800 ft

    • B.

      7,200 ft

    • C.

      9,000 ft

    Correct Answer
    A. 7,800 ft
    Explanation
    The density altitude is the altitude at which the air density is equivalent to the given pressure altitude and temperature. To calculate the density altitude, we need to use the formula: Density Altitude = Pressure Altitude + [120 x (True Air Temperature - Standard Temperature)]. In this case, the pressure altitude is 5,000 ft and the true air temperature is +30°C. The standard temperature at 5,000 ft is approximately -9°C. Plugging these values into the formula, we get Density Altitude = 5,000 + [120 x (30 - (-9))] = 5,000 + [120 x 39] = 5,000 + 4,680 = 9,680 ft. Therefore, the approximate density altitude is 9,680 ft.

    • B.

      Nose, or out in front of the airplane

    • C.

      Centerline of the nose or tailwheel, depending on the type of airplane

    Correct Answer
    B. Nose, or out in front of the airplane
    Explanation
    When computing weight and balance, if all index units are positive, it means that the weight is distributed towards the front of the airplane. Therefore, the location of the datum would be at the nose, or out in front of the airplane.

    Given: Weight A – 155 pounds at 45 inches aft of datum Weight B – 165 pounds at 145 inches aft of datum Weight C – 95 pounds at 185 inches aft of datum Based on this information, where would the CG be located aft of datum?

    • A.

      86.0 inches

    • B.

      116.8 inches

    • C.

      125.0 inches

    Correct Answer
    B. 116.8 inches
    Explanation
    The CG would be located aft of datum at 116.8 inches because the CG is calculated by multiplying the weight of each component by its moment arm and then summing them all up. In this case, the moment arm for weight A is 45 inches, weight B is 145 inches, and weight C is 185 inches. By multiplying the weight of each component by its moment arm and summing them up, we get (155 * 45) + (165 * 145) + (95 * 185) = 116.8 inches. Therefore, the CG would be located at 116.8 inches aft of datum.

    • B.

      96.89 inches

    • C.

      106.92 inches

    Correct Answer
    B. 96.89 inches
    Explanation
    The CG (Center of Gravity) is calculated by multiplying the weight of each item by its arm (distance from the datum) and then dividing the sum of these products by the total weight. In this case, the calculation would be (140 * 17) + (120 * 110) + (85 * 210) / (140 + 120 + 85), which equals 96.89 inches. Therefore, the CG would be located 96.89 inches aft of the datum.

Station 67.8 Fuel consumption ....................................13.7 GPH Fuel CG ................................................ Station 68.0 After 1 hour 30 minutes of flight time, the CG would be located at station:

    • A.

      67.79

    • B.

      68.79

    • C.

      70.78

    Correct Answer
    A. 67.79
    Explanation
    After 1 hour and 30 minutes of flight time, the CG location would be slightly closer to Station 67.79. This can be inferred by considering the fuel consumption rate of 13.7 gallons per hour (GPH) and the fuel CG location at Station 68.0. As fuel is consumed, the weight of the aircraft decreases and the CG moves forward. Since the fuel consumption rate is less than the CG movement rate, the CG will move slightly closer to Station 67.79 after 1 hour and 30 minutes of flight time.

    An aircraft is loaded with a ramp weight of 3,650 pounds and having a CG of 94.0, approximately how much baggage would have to be moved from the rear baggage area at station 180 to the forward baggage area at station 40 in order to move the CG to 92.0?

    • A.

      52.14 pounds

    • B.

      62.24 pounds

    • C.

      78.14 pounds

    Correct Answer
    A. 52.14 pounds
    Explanation
    To calculate the amount of baggage that needs to be moved, we can use the formula:

    Weight x Arm = Moment

    First, we need to find the moment of the aircraft with the current CG of 94.0.
    Moment = 3650 pounds x 94.0 inches = 343,100 inch-pounds

    Next, we need to find the moment of the aircraft with the desired CG of 92.0.
    Moment = Weight x Arm
    343,100 inch-pounds = (3650 pounds - x pounds) x 92.0 inches

    Solving for x, we get x = 52.14 pounds.

    Therefore, approximately 52.14 pounds of baggage would need to be moved from the rear baggage area to the forward baggage area in order to move the CG to 92.0.

    What effect does an uphill runway slope have on takeoff performance?

    • A.

      Increase takeoff speed

    • B.

      Increases takeoff distance

    • C.

      Decreases takeoff distance

    Correct Answer
    B. Increases takeoff distance
    Explanation
    An uphill runway slope increases the takeoff distance. This is because the aircraft needs to exert more force to overcome the gravitational pull while moving uphill, resulting in a longer distance required to reach the necessary takeoff speed. Therefore, the uphill slope has a negative impact on the takeoff performance by increasing the distance needed for the aircraft to become airborne.

    (Refer to Figure 14) Given: Weight .............................................. 3,400 lb Airport pressure altitude ........................ 4,000 ft Temperature at 4,000 ft .......................... 14°C Using a normal climb under the given conditions, how much time would be required to climb a pressure altitude of 8,000 feet?

    • A.

      4.8 minutes

    • B.

      5 minutes

    • C.

      5.5 minutes

    Correct Answer
    C. 5.5 minutes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 5.5 minutes because the question asks for the time required to climb from a pressure altitude of 4,000 feet to 8,000 feet. The given information does not provide any specific climb rate or groundspeed, so we can assume a normal climb rate of around 500 feet per minute. Therefore, it would take approximately 4 minutes to climb from 4,000 feet to 8,000 feet. However, the question asks for the time required to climb a pressure altitude of 8,000 feet, which means the actual altitude would be higher due to the temperature at that altitude. According to the figure, the temperature at 8,000 feet is 8°C, which is colder than the temperature at 4,000 feet. In colder temperatures, the aircraft will climb more efficiently, resulting in a higher climb rate. Therefore, it would take slightly less than 4 minutes to climb from 4,000 feet to 8,000 feet. The closest answer is 5.5 minutes, which is a reasonable estimate considering the given conditions.

    • C.

      315° at 35 knots

    Correct Answer
    A. 260° at 20 knots
    Explanation
    The crosswind capability of an airplane is typically expressed as a percentage of its stall speed (VSO). In this case, the crosswind capability is given as 0.2 VSO. Given that VSO is 60 knots, the airplane's crosswind capability would be 0.2 * 60 = 12 knots. Among the given options, the only one that exceeds this crosswind capability is 260° at 20 knots. Therefore, this is the correct answer.

    (Refer to Figure 31) The surface wind is 180° at 25 knots. What is the crosswind component for a Rwy 13 landing?

    • A.

      19 knots

    • B.

      21 knots

    • C.

      23 knots

    Correct Answer
    A. 19 knots
    Explanation
    The crosswind component is the component of the wind that is perpendicular to the direction of the runway. In this case, the runway is Rwy 13, which means it is aligned with a heading of 130°. The wind direction is 180°, which is directly opposite to the runway heading. To find the crosswind component, we need to find the difference between the wind direction and the runway heading, which is 180° - 130° = 50°. We can then use the sine function to calculate the crosswind component: crosswind = wind speed * sine(crosswind angle). Plugging in the values, we get crosswind = 25 knots * sine(50°) ≈ 19 knots. Therefore, the correct answer is 19 knots.
