    Explanation
    The correct answer is FDP. FDP stands for Flight Duty Period, which is the total time from the moment a flightcrew member is required to report for duty until the moment they are released from all duty. In this scenario, the flightcrew member's duty period includes both the deadhead transportation from IAD to DFW and the subsequent flight segment from DFW to LAX.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Report the fatigue event to the carrier.
    C. Do not sign the dispatch/flight release.
    Explanation
    The flightcrew member should report the fatigue event to the carrier because it is important to inform the responsible authority about their condition. This will ensure that appropriate actions can be taken to address the issue and ensure the safety of the flight. Additionally, the flightcrew member should not sign the dispatch/flight release because they have determined that they are too fatigued to perform their duties. Signing the release would indicate that they are fit to fly, which would be unsafe in this situation.

    One flightcrew member serving in a crew of 2 pilots had an FDP extension that exceeded the scheduled FDP limit by more than 30 minutes, 3 days ago. Since taking the extension that flightcrew member has not recieved a 30 consecutive rest period. May that flightcrew member accept another FDP extension that will exceed the scheduled FDP limit by more than 30 minutes, if the conditions are known before takeoff.

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Yes, as long as the PIC concurs

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    No, the flightcrew member may not accept another FDP extension that will exceed the scheduled FDP limit by more than 30 minutes, even if the conditions are known before takeoff. This is because according to the given information, the flightcrew member has not received a 30 consecutive rest period since taking the previous extension. Rest periods are important for ensuring the safety and well-being of the flightcrew members, and exceeding the FDP limit without adequate rest can lead to fatigue and compromised performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    A flightcrew member has an FDP limit of 12 hours. The flightcrew member's last scheduled segment of the FDP is a ferry flight that extends the FDP to 12.5 hours. Can the flight member accept the FDP?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No, the 30 minute period may not be used for scheduling.

    • C.

      Yes, ferry flights do not apply.

    Correct Answer
    B. No, the 30 minute period may not be used for scheduling.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is No, the 30 minute period may not be used for scheduling. This is because the flightcrew member's FDP limit is 12 hours, and the ferry flight extends the FDP to 12.5 hours. The 30 minute period cannot be used to exceed the FDP limit, so the flight member cannot accept the FDP.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    A flightcrew member is assigned a RAP beginning at 1200. The flightcrew member is notified of an unaugmented, 4 segment FDP that begins at 1700. What is the maximum scheduled FDP limit?

    • E.

      14:00

    • F.

      15:00

    • G.

      16:00

    Correct Answer
    A. 10:00
    Explanation
    FDP must be scheduled at the earliest of the following:
    12:00 + 16:00 = (04:00 next day)
    17:00 + 11:00 = (04:00 next day)
    12:00 + 11:00 + 4:00 = (03:00 next day)

    03:00 next day is the earliest, therefore the max scheduled FDP is 10:00 (17:00 to 03:00)

    117.13, Table B and 117.21(c)(3) refers.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    The time during which a flightcrew member serves on Airport/Standby reserve is subject to cumulative FDP limits?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During Airport/Standby reserve, a flightcrew member is on standby at the airport and can be called for duty at any time. This standby period is considered as part of their Flight Duty Period (FDP) and is subject to cumulative limits. This means that the time spent on Airport/Standby reserve will be counted towards the total allowable FDP for the crew member, ensuring that they do not exceed the maximum duty time allowed for safety reasons. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    The time during which a flightcrew member serves on RAP is subject to cumulative FDP limits?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the time during which a flightcrew member serves on RAP (Rest and Recovery Period) is not subject to cumulative Flight Duty Period (FDP) limits. RAP is a designated period of time during which the flightcrew member is not required to be available for duty, allowing them to rest and recover. It is separate from the FDP, which is the total time a flightcrew member is on duty from the start of their pre-flight preparation until they are released from all duties after the flight. Therefore, the time on RAP does not contribute to the cumulative FDP limits.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    May a certificate holder change a flightcrew members reserve assignment from Long-Call to Short-Call? If so, under what conditions?

    • A.

    • B.

      Yes, provided a 10 hours rest period with 8 hour sleep opportunity is provided prior to the RAP.

    • C.

      No, unless they are acclimated.

    Correct Answer
    B. Yes, provided a 10 hours rest period with 8 hour sleep opportunity is provided prior to the RAP.
    Explanation
    A certificate holder may change a flightcrew member's reserve assignment from Long-Call to Short-Call if the flightcrew member is fit for duty and if a 10-hour rest period with an 8-hour sleep opportunity is provided prior to the Reserve Availability Period (RAP). This ensures that the flightcrew member has had adequate rest and is ready to perform their duties effectively during the RAP.

    Rate this question:

  • 37. 

    Is it legal to be assigned 4 Airport/Standby reserve assignments that start at 03:00 and end at 06:00?

    • A.

    A flightcrew member starts a series of FDP's in JFK. The first rest period occurs in CDG. The flightcrew member recieves 10 hour rest periods between a series of FDP's that span 78 hour rest period with each FDP ending in CDG. At the conclusion of the 78 hour period, where is the flightcrew member acclimated?

    • A.

      JFK

    • B.

      CDG

    Correct Answer
    B. CDG
    Explanation
    The flightcrew member is acclimated in CDG at the conclusion of the 78-hour period because the question states that each FDP ends in CDG and the first rest period also occurs in CDG. Therefore, it can be inferred that the flightcrew member spends the majority of their time in CDG and would be acclimated to that location.
