Aircraft Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz is designed to review the Operational Limits of the A319/A320/A321 fleet.  


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the minimum runway length for LAHSO?

    • A.

      5000 ft.

    • B.

      6000 ft.

    • C.

      7000 ft.

    • D.

      8000 ft.

    Correct Answer
    B. 6000 ft.
    Explanation
    The minimum runway length for LAHSO (Land and Hold Short Operations) is 6000 ft. This means that for aircraft participating in LAHSO, the runway must be at least 6000 ft long in order to safely accommodate the operations.

    What is the maximum tailwind component for landing?

    • A.

      8 knots

    • B.

      9 knots

    • C.

      10 knots

    • D.

      11 knots

    Correct Answer
    C. 10 knots
    Explanation
    The maximum tailwind component for landing is 10 knots. This means that when landing, the wind can be blowing from behind the aircraft at a maximum speed of 10 knots. Any tailwind component greater than this could potentially affect the aircraft's ability to land safely, as it can increase the groundspeed and reduce the available runway length for stopping. Pilots must consider the wind conditions and adjust their approach and landing accordingly to ensure a safe landing.

    What is the maximum tailwind component for takeoff on the A320 with IAE engines (dry runway)?

    • A.

      10 knots

    • B.

      15 knots

    • C.

      20 knots

    • D.

      25 knots

    Correct Answer
    A. 10 knots
    Explanation
    The maximum tailwind component for takeoff on the A320 with IAE engines (dry runway) is 10 knots. This means that the aircraft can safely take off with a tailwind of up to 10 knots. Taking off with a tailwind increases the groundspeed of the aircraft, which can affect its performance and handling. Therefore, it is important to adhere to the specified maximum tailwind component to ensure safe takeoff operations.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The maximum 90 degree crosswind component (including gusts) for a CAT II/III landing is 15 knots.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true. A CAT II/III landing refers to a type of instrument approach and landing procedure that allows for lower visibility and ceiling requirements. The maximum crosswind component, including gusts, for this type of landing is limited to 15 knots. This restriction ensures safe and efficient landings in challenging weather conditions.

    BONUS: What type of engine is on aircraft 125?

    • A.

      CFM 56-5B

    • B.

      RR TRENT 772-B

    • C.

      IAE V2500-A1

    • D.

      IAE V2533-A5

    Correct Answer
    A. CFM 56-5B
    Explanation
    JCA*TAIL ENTRY IN SABRE WILL SHOW THE ENGINE TYPE.

  • 6. 

    What is the maximum tailwind component for takeoff on the A321 with CFM engines (dry runway)?

    • A.

      10 knots

    • B.

      12 knots

    • C.

      14 knots

    • D.

      15 knots

    Correct Answer
    D. 15 knots
    Explanation
    The maximum tailwind component for takeoff on the A321 with CFM engines (dry runway) is 15 knots. This means that the aircraft can safely take off with a tailwind of up to 15 knots. Taking off with a tailwind can be challenging as it reduces the effective airspeed of the aircraft, but the A321 with CFM engines is designed to handle this maximum tailwind component.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the maximum operating altitude of the A319/A320/A321?

    • A.

      37000

    • B.

      38000

    • C.

      39000

    • D.

      40000

    Correct Answer
    C. 39000
    Explanation
    The maximum operating altitude of the A319/A320/A321 is 39000. This means that these aircraft models are capable of flying at a maximum altitude of 39,000 feet above sea level. Flying at higher altitudes allows for more efficient fuel consumption and smoother air travel.
