    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Most numbers should be transmitted by pronouncing each digit separately; some exceptions are (check ALL that apply):

    • A.

      Runway numbers (e.g., Runway 12 = "Runway Twelve")

    • B.

      Numbers less than 100 (e.g., 21 = "twenty one")

    • C.

      Whole thousands (e.g., 4,000 = "four thousand")

    • D.

      Altitudes (e.g., 3,600' = "three thousand six hundred feet"

    • E.

      Flight levels (e.g., FL430 = "flight level four hundred thirty"

    • F.

      Cloud formation heights (e.g., 52 SCT ="fifty two hundred scattered"

    • G.

      Headings (e.g., Heading 210 = "Heading two hundred ten")

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Whole thousands (e.g., 4,000 = "four thousand")
    D. Altitudes (e.g., 3,600' = "three thousand six hundred feet"
    F. Cloud formation heights (e.g., 52 SCT ="fifty two hundred scattered"
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Whole thousands, Altitudes, and Cloud formation heights. Whole thousands are typically pronounced as the number followed by "thousand" (e.g., 4,000 = "four thousand"). Altitudes are pronounced as each digit separately (e.g., 3,600' = "three thousand six hundred feet"). Cloud formation heights are pronounced as the number followed by "hundred" (e.g., 52 SCT = "fifty two hundred scattered").

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When calling a ground station during a routine communication, what do you say first in your transmission?

    • A.

      Words THIS IS

    • B.

      Your aircraft type + call sign

    • D.

      Words ALL STATIONS ALL STATIONS ALL STATIONS

    Correct Answer
    C. Ground station identifier (e.g., Charlottetown Radio)
    Explanation
    In routine communication with a ground station, the first thing you say in your transmission is the ground station identifier, such as "Charlottetown Radio." This is important as it helps establish contact with the specific ground station you are trying to communicate with. By stating the ground station identifier first, you ensure that your message is directed to the correct recipient and that they are aware that you are trying to establish communication with them.

    If found guilty of violating the regulations relative to unauthorized communications, profane or obscene language, or sending a fake distress signal a person may be fined up to five thousand dollars and/or imprisoned for a term not exceeding one year. The answer options provided all convey the same meaning, which is that the maximum term of imprisonment for the mentioned violations is one year.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You are flying within CYYG (Charlottetown) control zone, having established communication with them previously (last communication between you was about four minutes ago). You experience an emergency. What frequency do you transmit your distress message on?

    • A.

      118.0 (the station on which you've already established communications)

    • B.

      121.5 (emergency frequency)

    • C.

      126.7 (emergency frequency)

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. 118.0 (the station on which you've already established communications)
    Explanation
    If already in communication with a ground station, keep talking to them. Call on 121.5 otherwise. Finally, you can try any frequency that will establish communication with any aircraft or ground station.

    126.7 is not an emergency frequency, but rather a common frequency to use outside of controlled airspace to communicate to other aircraft in your vicinity.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    In what manner should a pilot talk on the radio?

    • A.

      As rapidly as possible, to avoid tying up the frequency.

    • B.

      As clearly as possible to prevent words from running together.

    • C.

      As loudly as possible, to ensure clear reception.

    • D.

      As distinctly and mechanically as possible; do not use ordinary intonations and rhythm, break up the syllables instead and speak in a "robotic" voice for greater clarity.

    Correct Answer
    B. As clearly as possible to prevent words from running together.
    Explanation
    The pilot should talk on the radio as clearly as possible to prevent words from running together. This is important because clear communication is essential for effective and safe aviation operations. By speaking clearly, the pilot ensures that their message is easily understood by air traffic controllers and other pilots, reducing the risk of misunderstandings or miscommunications that could lead to accidents or errors. Clarity in radio communication is particularly crucial in busy airspace, where multiple transmissions are happening simultaneously.

    Write the following in 24-hour format (type in four numbers, no spaces, no other characters):  5:43 p.m.

    Correct Answer
    1743
    Explanation
    The given question asks for the time "5:43 p.m." to be written in 24-hour format. In the 24-hour format, the hours range from 00 to 23. To convert the time, we subtract 12 from the given hour since it is in the afternoon (p.m.). Therefore, 5:43 p.m. in 24-hour format is 17:43, which can be written as 1743.

    Explanation
    The letter "Z" in 1300Z stands for Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This is a standard time reference used in aviation and military operations, indicating that the time given is in UTC. UTC is a time standard that is used globally and is based on atomic time, providing a common reference point for different time zones around the world.

    What does the procedural word BREAK mean in radio transmission?

    • A.

      It separates parts of message (e.g., to different aicraft)

    • B.

      It signals that communication between two stations is over, and the pilot should switch to the next applicable frequency.

    • C.

      It indicates poor readability (transmission is breaking up).

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. It separates parts of message (e.g., to different aicraft)
    Explanation
    The procedural word "BREAK" in radio transmission is used to separate different parts of a message, particularly when the message needs to be directed to different aircraft. It is a way to indicate a pause or break in the transmission, allowing for clear communication and ensuring that the message is correctly received by the intended recipients.
