    • C.

      10 hours after the consumption of an alcoholic beverage. 10 hours after the consumption of an alcoholic beverage.

    Correct Answer
    B. 8 hours after the consumption of an alcoholic beverage.
  • 2. 

    Concerning right of-way-rules, which aircraft has the right-of-way over all other aircraft?

    • A.

      A light sport aircraft.

    • B.

      A balloon.

    • C.

      A glider.

    • D.

      An aircraft in distress.

    Correct Answer
    D. An aircraft in distress.
    Explanation
    In terms of right-of-way rules, an aircraft in distress is given priority over all other aircraft. This is because the safety and well-being of the distressed aircraft and its occupants take precedence over any other considerations. Other aircraft are expected to yield and provide assistance to the distressed aircraft as needed.

    Concerning right-of-way rules, when aircraft are approaching head on, each pilot should?

    • A.

      Descend if they on an easterly heading.

    • B.

      Climb if they are on a westerly heading.

    • C.

      Assume the other aircraft will will alter course.

    • D.

      Alter course to the right.

    Correct Answer
    D. Alter course to the right.
    Explanation
    When aircraft are approaching head-on, each pilot should alter course to the right. This is because the right-of-way rules state that when two aircraft are on a collision course, both pilots should alter their course to the right to avoid a potential collision. This ensures that both aircraft move away from each other and maintain a safe distance. Descending or climbing based on the heading or assuming the other aircraft will alter course are not correct because they do not follow the established right-of-way rules.

    "______is the maximum indicated airspeed an aircraft can be operated below 10,000 feet MSL?"

    Correct Answer
    250 knots
    Explanation
    The maximum indicated airspeed that an aircraft can be operated below 10,000 feet MSL is 250 knots. This speed restriction is in place to ensure the safety of aircraft operating at lower altitudes where there may be more air traffic and potential conflicts. By limiting the speed to 250 knots, pilots have more time to react and maneuver if necessary, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions.

  • 5. 

    "The minimum safe altitude over a congested area is _________feet above the highest obstacle?"

    Correct Answer
    1000
    Explanation
    The minimum safe altitude over a congested area is 1000 feet above the highest obstacle. This means that when flying over a congested area, pilots must maintain an altitude that is at least 1000 feet higher than the tallest building or structure in that area. This ensures that there is enough clearance between the aircraft and any obstacles on the ground, reducing the risk of collisions and ensuring the safety of people on the ground and passengers on board.

  • 6. 

    During the day, under Visual Flight Rules, no person may begin a flight unless there is enough fuel to fly to the first point of intended landing and after that?

    • A.

      For 45 minutes.

    • B.

      For 30 minutes.

    • C.

      For 1 hour.

    Correct Answer
    B. For 30 minutes.
    Explanation
    Under Visual Flight Rules (VFR), pilots are required to have enough fuel to fly to the first point of intended landing and then have an additional 30 minutes of fuel reserve. This additional fuel reserve is necessary to account for any unforeseen circumstances, such as diversions or delays, that may extend the duration of the flight. It ensures that the pilot has enough fuel to safely reach an alternate airport or continue flying for a reasonable amount of time in case of any unexpected situations.

    At night, under Visual Flight Rules, no person may begin a flight unless there is enough fuel to fly to the first point of intended landing and after that?

    • A.

      For 45 minutes.

    • B.

      For 30 minutes.

    • C.

      For 1 hour.

    Correct Answer
    A. For 45 minutes.
    Explanation
    Under Visual Flight Rules (VFR), pilots are required to have enough fuel to reach their intended landing point and continue flying for an additional 45 minutes. This extra fuel is necessary to account for any unforeseen circumstances or delays that may occur during the flight, such as weather changes or air traffic congestion. Having this reserve fuel ensures that the pilot has enough time to safely divert to an alternate airport if needed or to find a suitable landing spot in case of an emergency.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which is NOT required information for a VFR flight plan?

    • A.

      The aircraft identification number.

    • B.

      The type of aircraft.

    • C.

      The names and addresses of each passenger to be carried on board the aircraft.

    • D.

      The amount of fuel on board (in hours).

    Correct Answer
    C. The names and addresses of each passenger to be carried on board the aircraft.
    Explanation
    The names and addresses of each passenger to be carried on board the aircraft are not required information for a VFR flight plan. VFR stands for Visual Flight Rules, which means the pilot navigates the aircraft by visual references on the ground and in the air. The information necessary for a VFR flight plan includes the aircraft identification number, the type of aircraft, and the amount of fuel on board. The names and addresses of passengers are not relevant to the flight plan as they do not affect the navigation or safety of the aircraft during a VFR flight.

  • 9. 

    No person may operate an aircraft under VFR in Class D airspace with flight visibility less then?

    • A.

      5 statute miles.

    • B.

      3 statute miles.

    • C.

      1 statute mile.

    Correct Answer
    B. 3 statute miles.
    Explanation
    In Class D airspace, the minimum flight visibility required for operating an aircraft under VFR is 3 statute miles. This means that pilots must have a clear horizontal visibility of at least 3 statute miles in order to safely navigate and avoid other aircraft in this type of airspace. A lower visibility would increase the risk of collisions and compromise the safety of the flight.

  • 10. 

    To operate under Special VFR weather minimums, you must obtain an ATC clearance and remain clear of clouds?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To operate under Special VFR weather minimums, pilots are required to obtain an ATC clearance and must stay clear of clouds. This means that they need permission from Air Traffic Control to fly in Special VFR conditions, which are less strict than regular VFR conditions. However, they still need to maintain visual contact with the ground and other aircraft, and avoid flying into clouds to ensure safety. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.
