    Which VFR cruising altitude is appropriate when flying above 3,000 feet AGL on a magnetic course of 185°?

    • A.

      4,000 feet.

    • B.

      4,500 feet.

    • C.

      5,000 feet.

    • D.

      5,500 feet

    Correct Answer
    B. 4,500 feet.
    Explanation
    The appropriate VFR cruising altitude when flying above 3,000 feet AGL on a magnetic course of 185° is 4,500 feet. This is because VFR cruising altitudes are determined by adding 500 feet to the altitude for magnetic courses of 0° to 179°, and adding 1,000 feet for magnetic courses of 180° to 359°. In this case, since the magnetic course is 185°, we add 500 feet to 3,000 feet AGL to get 4,500 feet.

    When two or more aircraft are approaching an airport for the purpose of landing, the right-of-way belongs to the aircraft:

    • A.

      That has the other to its right.

    • B.

      At the lower altitude, but it shall not take advantage of this rule to cut in front of or to overtake another

    • C.

      That is the least maneuverable.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. At the lower altitude, but it shall not take advantage of this rule to cut in front of or to overtake another
    Explanation
    When two or more aircraft are approaching an airport for landing, the right-of-way belongs to the aircraft at the lower altitude. However, this aircraft should not take advantage of this rule to cut in front of or overtake another aircraft. This means that even though the lower altitude aircraft has the right-of-way, it should still maintain proper spacing and not disrupt the flow of other aircraft in the landing sequence. This ensures safe and orderly landing operations at the airport.

    With respect to the certification of airmen, which is a category of aircraft?

    • A.

      Airplane, rotorcraft, glider, lighter-than-air.

    • B.

      Gyroplane, rotorcraft, airship, Free balloon.

    • C.

      Single-engine land and sea, multi-engine land and sea.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Airplane, rotorcraft, glider, lighter-than-air.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Airplane, rotorcraft, glider, lighter-than-air." This answer lists different categories of aircraft that are considered for the certification of airmen. An airplane is a fixed-wing aircraft, a rotorcraft includes helicopters and autogyros, a glider is an unpowered aircraft that relies on wind currents for flight, and lighter-than-air refers to aircraft like blimps and dirigibles. These categories cover a wide range of aircraft types that pilots can be certified to fly.

    The responsibility for ensuring that an aircraft is maintained in an airworthy condition is primarily that of the:

    • A.

      Owner or operator

    • B.

      Pilot-in-command

    • C.

      Mechanic who performs the work.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Owner or operator
    Explanation
    The responsibility for ensuring that an aircraft is maintained in an airworthy condition primarily falls on the owner or operator. They are ultimately responsible for the overall maintenance and safety of the aircraft. While the pilot-in-command plays a role in reporting any maintenance issues and ensuring the aircraft is safe to fly before each flight, the owner or operator is responsible for scheduling regular inspections and maintenance, as well as keeping up with any necessary repairs. The mechanic who performs the work is responsible for performing the maintenance tasks correctly and in accordance with regulations, but the ultimate responsibility lies with the owner or operator.

    In which type of airspace are VFR flights prohibited?

    • A.

      Class A

    • B.

      Class B

    • C.

      Class C

    • D.

      Class D

    Correct Answer
    A. Class A
    Explanation
    VFR flights are prohibited in Class A airspace. This is because Class A airspace is primarily used for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) flights, which require specific equipment and training. VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flights operate under different rules and are not allowed in Class A airspace due to the high volume of IFR traffic and the need for strict separation between aircraft. Therefore, VFR flights are prohibited in Class A airspace.

    During the preflight inspection who is responsible for determining the aircraft in safe for flight?

    • A.

      The owner or operator

    • B.

      The pilot-in-command.

    • C.

      The certificated mechanic who performed the annual inspection

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. The pilot-in-command.
    Explanation
    The pilot-in-command is responsible for determining if the aircraft is safe for flight during the preflight inspection. As the person in charge of the aircraft and its operation, the pilot-in-command has the final authority to decide if the aircraft is in a condition to fly. This includes checking various systems, controls, and components to ensure they are functioning properly and that there are no visible signs of damage or defects that could affect the safety of the flight. The owner or operator may have a role in ensuring the overall maintenance and airworthiness of the aircraft, but it is ultimately the pilot-in-command's responsibility to make the final determination before each flight.
