Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    You experience complete engine failure what is your initial action?
    • A. 

      Pitch the aircraft for best glide speed and trim quickly

    • B. 

      Request for assistance and transmit a mayday call

    • C. 

      Turn towards a suitable field

    • D. 

      Attempt engine restart

  • 2. 
    Is the following correct. After experiencing engine failure you should first pitch for Vgl and quickly trim the aircraft. Then you choose a suitable field and plan how you will get there. If you have time try to restart the engine. If you are unable to restart the engine you must transmit a mayday call before making crash checks which typically include securing the engine, turning the fuel and master switch, warning passengers and unlatching doors.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 3. 
    Which of the following is correct regarding use of flaps?
    • A. 

      They are not necessary if there is enough room for a long landing run

    • B. 

      They should be lowered once you know you will reach the field

    • C. 

      They should never be used

    • D. 

      First notch of flaps should be lowered on base leg and full flaps once wings level on final

  • 4. 
    On final leg you should not use slipping (side slip) to control height as this increases stall speed and a possibility to enter a spin at low height.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    What effect does lowering flaps have on glide speed and distance?
    • A. 

      Lowering flaps will decrease glide speed and increase gliding distance

    • B. 

      Lowering flaps will decrease glide speed and decrease gliding distance

    • C. 

      Lowering flaps to take-off position will decrease glide speed and increase gliding distance

    • D. 

      Lowering flaps to take-off position will increase glide speed and increase gliding distance

  • 6. 
    During glide your aiming point is moving upwards (Sight line angle reducing) this means.
    • A. 

      In order to make it to the aiming point you should further slow down your aircraft

    • B. 

      You will not reach your aiming point

    • C. 

      You will overfly the aiming point

    • D. 

      You will reach reach your aiming point

  • 7. 
    How would you make a force landing?
    • A. 

      Into crosswind on a medium size field

    • B. 

      Into tailwind on a large field

    • C. 

      Into headwind on a road with no traffic

    • D. 

      Into headwind on a small field

  • 8. 
    You experience engine failure during departure from runway 36. You are at 400 feet with no runway remaining ahead of you. The wind is 270 degrees at 5 knots. There is an open field approximately 4 NM to your left. What will you do?
    • A. 

      Start an immediate turn to the right with high angle of bank and land on runway 18

    • B. 

      Start an immediate turn to the left with shallow angle of bank and land on runway 18

    • C. 

      Land straight ahead avoiding obstacles

    • D. 

      Start a shallow turn towards the field on your left

  • 9. 
    A heavier aircraft will
    • A. 

      Glide the same distance than a lighter aircraft with a higher glide speed

    • B. 

      Glide the same distance than a lighter aircraft with a lower glide speed

    • C. 

      Glide further distance than a lighter aircraft with the same glide speed

    • D. 

      Glide shorter distance than a lighter aircraft with a higher glide speed

  • 10. 
    An aircraft with a 1:15 glide ratio is able to glide from an altitude of 2000 feet
    • A. 

      Approximately 3NM

    • B. 

      Approximately 5NM

    • C. 

      Approximately 8NM

    • D. 

      Approximately 10NM
