Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A crew member cannot be returned to this type of reserve after a trip assignment.

    • A.

      Short Call

    • B.

      Extended

    • C.

      Long Call

    • D.

      Reduced Bid Block

    Correct Answer
    A. Short Call
    Explanation
    A crew member cannot be returned to a Short Call reserve after a trip assignment because Short Call reserves are typically used for last-minute or emergency assignments. Once a crew member has been assigned a trip, they are no longer available for last-minute assignments and therefore cannot be returned to Short Call reserve.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A crew member is required to have 30 hours rest in the past 168 hours. Where does the lookback begin?

    • A.

      At block in from the last live leg.

    • B.

      After each leg.

    • C.

      At report time of the FDP or RAP

    • D.

      After the 15 minute debrief at the end of the trip.

    Correct Answer
    C. At report time of the FDP or RAP
    Explanation
    The lookback period for crew members to determine their rest requirements begins at the report time of the FDP or RAP. This means that crew members need to have had 30 hours of rest within the past 168 hours leading up to their report time for their flight duty period or reserve availability period. This ensures that crew members have had sufficient rest before starting their next duty period, promoting safety and preventing fatigue-related issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    This is a duty period where the company requires an SC reserve to be available to receive an assignment.

    • A.

      FDP, Flight Duty Period

    • B.

      RAP, reserve availability period

    • C.

      Modified duty

    • D.

      Duty during WOCL

    Correct Answer
    B. RAP, reserve availability period
    Explanation
    The correct answer is RAP, reserve availability period. In this duty period, the company requires an SC reserve to be available to receive an assignment. This means that the reserve must be on standby and ready to be assigned a task if needed. The RAP ensures that there is always a reserve available to handle any unforeseen circumstances or last-minute changes in the schedule.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    No more than one pre-takeoff FDP extension exceeding 30 minutes is legal without receiving this much rest.

    • A.

      36 hours at base.

    • B.

      10 hours of physiological nights rest.

    • C.

      30 hours

    • D.

      8 hour sleep opportunity. The pilot is responsible for getting the sleep.

    Correct Answer
    C. 30 hours
    Explanation
    The pilot is allowed to extend their pre-takeoff Flight Duty Period (FDP) by a maximum of 30 minutes without requiring additional rest. This means that they can work for an additional 30 minutes beyond their scheduled FDP without needing any rest time. However, any further extension beyond this 30-minute limit would require the pilot to have a specific amount of rest time before they can continue their duties. The given answer, "30 hours," indicates that the pilot can extend their FDP by up to 30 minutes without needing any additional rest.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    This is the time measured from check-in for a trip, until the block in of the last live flight.

    • A.

      FDP, Flight Duty Period.

    • B.

      Fight Time Limit.

    • C.

      Cumulative Time.

    • D.

      RAP, Reserve Availalbility Period

    Correct Answer
    A. FDP, Flight Duty Period.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is FDP, Flight Duty Period. The given definition describes the time measured from check-in for a trip until the block in of the last live flight. Flight Duty Period refers to the duration during which a flight crew member is on duty, including pre-flight preparations, the actual flight time, and post-flight duties. It is important to monitor and adhere to FDP regulations to ensure the safety and well-being of the crew and passengers.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    If the time spent in deadhead transportation exceeds Table B, how much rest must the pilot receive?

    • A.

      30 hours once they return to base.

    • B.

      18 hours rest, within 24 hours of when they exceeded Table B.

    • C.

      Double the time spent in dhedhead, but not less than 10 hours.

    • D.

      10 hours.

    Correct Answer
    C. Double the time spent in dhedhead, but not less than 10 hours.
    Explanation
    If the time spent in deadhead transportation exceeds Table B, the pilot must receive double the time spent in deadhead, but not less than 10 hours, as rest. This means that if the pilot spends 5 hours in deadhead transportation, they must receive a minimum of 10 hours of rest. However, if the pilot spends 15 hours in deadhead transportation, they must receive 30 hours of rest. The rest period is proportional to the time spent in deadhead transportation.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    All extensions must be approved by this person.

      The FODO

    • B.

      The person who is being extended.

    • C.

      The chief dispatcher.

    • D.

      The PIC, Captain.

    Correct Answer
    D. The PIC, Captain.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is The PIC, Captain. The PIC, which stands for Pilot-in-Command, is responsible for the overall operation and safety of the flight. As part of their role, they have the authority to approve or disapprove any extensions related to the flight, ensuring that all necessary approvals are obtained before any changes or modifications are made.

    • C.

      Cumulative Rest

    • D.

      Flight Time Limit

    Correct Answer
    D. Flight Time Limit
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the flight time limit may vary depending on the crew's report time, which implies that the flight time limit is flexible and can be adjusted based on certain factors. This indicates that the flight time limit is not a fixed duration but can be extended or shortened based on specific circumstances or regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    This much notice is required to assign an LC reserve a trip beginning before and extending into the WOCL.

    • A.

      10 hours

    • B.

      Double the duty

    • C.

      12 hours

    • D.

      11 hours.

    Correct Answer
    C. 12 hours
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 12 hours. This much notice is required to assign an LC reserve a trip beginning before and extending into the WOCL. This means that if a reserve is needed for a trip that starts before the WOCL (Window of Circadian Low) and continues into it, the airline must give a minimum of 12 hours notice to the reserve.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A long call can be converted to a short call as long as they have 12 hours rest.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A long call and a short call are two different types of options strategies. A long call involves buying a call option, while a short call involves selling a call option. These strategies cannot be converted into each other simply by having 12 hours of rest. The decision to enter a long or short call position depends on the investor's outlook and strategy, and cannot be changed based on a time restriction. Therefore, the statement that a long call can be converted to a short call as long as they have 12 hours rest is false.
