      HSI

    • B.

      ADI

    • C.

      MFD

    • D.

      HUD

    Correct Answer
    A. HSI
    Explanation
    Special TACAN (Tactical Air Navigation) information is displayed on the HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator). The HSI is a primary flight instrument that provides pilots with essential information about their aircraft's position and orientation. TACAN is a navigation system used by military aircraft that combines the features of VOR (VHF Omnidirectional Range) and DME (Distance Measuring Equipment). The HSI displays TACAN information such as bearing, distance, and identification codes, allowing pilots to navigate accurately and effectively during military operations.

    when the bearing pointer on the HSI slews clockwise at about 30 degrees per second, the aircraft TACAN system is said to be

    • A.

      Tracking

    • B.

      Defective

    • C.

      Searching

    • D.

      Locked-on

    Correct Answer
    C. Searching
    Explanation
    When the bearing pointer on the HSI slews clockwise at about 30 degrees per second, it indicates that the aircraft TACAN system is "searching". This means that the system is actively trying to locate and lock onto a TACAN station or signal. The rapid clockwise movement suggests that the system is scanning for the strongest signal and attempting to establish a connection with it. This behavior is typical when the TACAN system is in the process of searching for a reliable signal source.

      Proper left/right runway approach

    • B.

      ID of ILS ground station

    • C.

      Distance to the approach end of the runway

    • D.

      Proper vertical approach angle to land

    Correct Answer
    D. Proper vertical approach angle to land
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "proper vertical approach angle to land". When an aircraft is using glide slope information, the "set up" refers to ensuring that the aircraft is maintaining the correct vertical approach angle to safely land on the runway. The glide slope provides guidance to the pilot, helping them maintain the correct descent path to the runway. By adjusting the aircraft's pitch and descent rate, the pilot can ensure they are on the correct glide slope and approaching the runway at the proper vertical angle for a safe landing.
