Federal Aviation Regulation Quiz - Quiz

For Alaska Virutal Airlines new pilots.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What does IFR stand for?

    • A.

      International Federal Regulation

    • B.

      Incredibly Foggy Runway

    • C.

      Instrument Flight Rules

    • D.

      Instrument Flown Route

    Correct Answer
    C. Instrument Flight Rules
    Explanation
    IFR stands for Instrument Flight Rules. These rules are a set of regulations and procedures that govern the operation of aircraft when flying in conditions where visibility is limited, such as in clouds or low visibility due to fog. Pilots flying under IFR must rely on their instruments to navigate and control the aircraft, rather than relying on visual references outside the aircraft. This ensures safe and controlled flight in adverse weather conditions.

    What are the hemispherical crusing altitude's?

    • A.

      West - Odd

    • B.

      West - Even, East - Odd

    • C.

      East - Even

    • D.

      You can fly at what ever altitiude you choose

    Correct Answer
    B. West - Even, East - Odd
    Explanation
    The correct answer is West - Even, East - Odd. This is because in the Northern Hemisphere, the cruising altitudes for flights heading west (e.g. from Europe to North America) are assigned even flight levels (e.g. 32,000 feet), while flights heading east (e.g. from North America to Europe) are assigned odd flight levels (e.g. 33,000 feet). This is done to ensure vertical separation between aircraft and maintain safety in the airspace.

    What is LNAV?

    • A.

      Long Navigation Area's Varies

    • B.

      Lateral Navigation

    • C.

      Lima November Alpha Victor

    • D.

      Lunar Navigation Advanced

    Correct Answer
    B. Lateral Navigation
    Explanation
    LNAV stands for Lateral Navigation. It refers to the navigation system that allows an aircraft to follow a specific lateral path, such as a specific course or track. Lateral navigation is crucial for maintaining the aircraft's position relative to its intended route and for avoiding obstacles or other aircraft. It involves the use of various navigation aids, such as GPS, VOR, and DME, to accurately determine the aircraft's position and make necessary course corrections. Therefore, LNAV is an essential component of modern aircraft navigation systems.

    What does MSA mean?

    • A.

      Minimum Safe Altitude

    • B.

      Maximum Safe Altitude

    • C.

      Maximum Speed Approaching

    • D.

      Minimum Speed Approaching

    Correct Answer
    A. Minimum Safe Altitude
    Explanation
    MSA stands for Minimum Safe Altitude. This refers to the minimum altitude that an aircraft must maintain in order to ensure clearance from obstacles and terrain. It is a critical safety measure to prevent collisions with the ground or other objects, especially during low visibility or in mountainous areas.

    You may not go above _____KTS below 10,000ft MSL.

    • A.

      200KTS

    • B.

      250KTS

    • C.

      300KTS

    • D.

      There is no limit.

    Correct Answer
    B. 250KTS
    Explanation
    According to the given information, there is a speed limit below 10,000ft MSL. The correct answer states that the maximum speed limit is 250KTS. This means that aircraft cannot exceed this speed below 10,000ft MSL.

    What is a SID?

    • A.

      Standard Instrument Definition

    • B.

      Standard Instruction Deviation

    • C.

      Sierra India Delta

    • D.

      Standard Instrument Departure

    Correct Answer
    D. Standard Instrument Departure
    Explanation
    A SID stands for Standard Instrument Departure. It is a predefined flight path that aircraft are required to follow after takeoff to ensure safe separation from other aircraft and to facilitate efficient traffic flow. SIDs are typically published in aviation charts and provide specific instructions and altitude restrictions for pilots to follow until they reach a certain point or altitude. They are designed to standardize departures and help pilots navigate through busy airspace.

    What is a STAR?

    • A.

      Standard Terminal Approach

    • B.

      Standard Terminal Arrival

    • C.

      Standard Terminal Aircraft

    • D.

      I have no clue at all.

    Correct Answer
    B. Standard Terminal Arrival
    Explanation
    A STAR (Standard Terminal Arrival) is a standard instrument procedure used by pilots during the arrival phase of a flight. It provides a pre-determined route and altitude for aircraft to follow when transitioning from the enroute phase to the terminal phase of their flight. The purpose of a STAR is to ensure safe and efficient traffic flow into busy airports, while also aiding in the coordination between air traffic control and pilots.

    KSEA 210135Z 09013G20KT 1/2SM R16C/5000V5500FT SN FZFG VV006 M05/M07 A3012With this METAR, should you prepare for Icing conditions prior to departure?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Based on the given METAR report, there are indications of potential icing conditions. The visibility is only 1/2 statute mile, which is significantly reduced, and there is snow and freezing fog reported. Additionally, the temperature and dew point are both below freezing, which increases the likelihood of ice formation. Therefore, it is advisable to prepare for icing conditions prior to departure.

    (Husky Visual Runway 16C Chart) On the "Husky Visual" Runway 16C into Seattle-Tacoma (KSEA), at what altitude should you cross the Husky Stadium?

    • A.

      6,000ft

    • B.

      5,000ft

    • C.

      3,000ft

    • D.

      1,900ft

    Correct Answer
    B. 5,000ft
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 5,000ft. When flying the "Husky Visual" approach into Seattle-Tacoma (KSEA) on Runway 16C, you should cross the Husky Stadium at an altitude of 5,000ft. This altitude is specified on the chart and is important for maintaining proper separation and clearance while navigating the approach.

    (VOR/DME Runway 16L/C Chart)On the VOR/DME Approach for Runway 16L or 16C into Seattle-Tacoma (KSEA), at what altitude should you be at MGNUM?

    • A.

      4,000ft

    • B.

      3,000ft

    • C.

      2,000ft

    • D.

      1,900ft

    Correct Answer
    C. 2,000ft
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2,000ft. On the VOR/DME Approach for Runway 16L or 16C into Seattle-Tacoma (KSEA), pilots should be at an altitude of 2,000ft when reaching the MGNUM waypoint. This altitude is specified in the approach chart and is a crucial reference point for maintaining the correct descent profile and ensuring safe navigation during the approach. Being at the correct altitude at MGNUM is important for maintaining proper separation from other aircraft and for meeting the required altitude restrictions at subsequent waypoints on the approach.
