    • A.

      Change power settings, as necessary, to maintain constant airspeed

    • B.

      Control airspeed with power, maintain wings level, and accept variations of altitude

    • C.

      Set power and trim to obtain an airspeed at or below maneuvering speed, maintain wings level, and accept variations of airspeed and altitude

    Correct Answer
    C. Set power and trim to obtain an airspeed at or below maneuvering speed, maintain wings level, and accept variations of airspeed and altitude
    Explanation
    The best technique for minimizing the wing-load factor when flying in severe turbulence is to set power and trim to obtain an airspeed at or below maneuvering speed, maintain wings level, and accept variations of airspeed and altitude. This technique ensures that the aircraft is flying at a safe speed and that the wings are level, reducing the stress on the wings and minimizing the risk of structural damage. Accepting variations of airspeed and altitude allows the aircraft to adjust to the turbulent conditions without putting excessive load on the wings.

    A pilot’s most immediate and vital concern in the event of complete engine failure after becoming airborne on takeoff is:

    • A.

      Maintaining a safe airspeed

    • B.

      Landing directly into the wind

    • C.

      Turning back to the takeoff field

    Correct Answer
    A. Maintaining a safe airspeed
    Explanation
    In the event of complete engine failure after becoming airborne on takeoff, maintaining a safe airspeed is the most immediate and vital concern for a pilot. This is because without engine power, the aircraft will start losing altitude rapidly, and maintaining a safe airspeed will help the pilot to control the aircraft's descent and prevent a stall. Landing directly into the wind or turning back to the takeoff field may not be feasible options in all situations and could potentially lead to a loss of control or other safety hazards.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    When turbulence is encountered during the approach to a landing, what action is recommended and for what primary reason?

    • A.

      Increase the airspeed slightly above normal approach speed to attain more positive control

    • B.

      Decrease the airspeed slightly below normal approach speed to avoid overstressing the airplane

    • C.

      Increase the airspeed slightly above normal approach speed to penetrate the turbulence as quickly as possible

    Correct Answer
    A. Increase the airspeed slightly above normal approach speed to attain more positive control
    Explanation
    Increasing the airspeed slightly above normal approach speed is recommended during turbulence encountered during the approach to a landing in order to attain more positive control. This is because the increased airspeed provides more airflow over the control surfaces, allowing the pilot to have better control of the aircraft in turbulent conditions. By increasing the airspeed, the pilot can counteract the effects of turbulence and maintain stability and control during the landing approach.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which type of approach and landing is recommended during gusty wind conditions?

    • A.

      A power-on approach and power-on landing

    • B.

      A power-off approach and power-on landing

    • C.

      A power-on approach and power-off landing

    Correct Answer
    A. A power-on approach and power-on landing
    Explanation
    During gusty wind conditions, a power-on approach and power-on landing are recommended. This is because maintaining power during the approach and landing allows the pilot to have more control over the aircraft's speed and descent rate. The increased power helps counteract the effects of gusty winds, providing more stability and control. By keeping power on, the pilot can make adjustments as needed to counteract any sudden changes in wind speed or direction, ensuring a safer and smoother landing.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A proper crosswind landing on a runway requires that, at the moment of touchdown, the:

    • A.

      Directional of motion of the airplane and its lateral axis be perpendicular to the runway

    • B.

      Directional of motion of the airplane and its longitudinal axis be parallel to the runway

    • C.

      Downwind wing be lowered sufficiently to eliminate the tendency for the airplane to drift

    Correct Answer
    B. Directional of motion of the airplane and its longitudinal axis be parallel to the runway
    Explanation
    During a crosswind landing, it is important for the directional motion of the airplane and its longitudinal axis to be parallel to the runway. This means that the airplane should be aligned with the runway, moving in the same direction as the runway. This is crucial for maintaining control and stability during the landing. If the airplane is not aligned parallel to the runway, it can result in drifting or veering off course, making the landing unsafe. By ensuring that the directional motion and longitudinal axis are parallel to the runway, the pilot can safely touch down and maintain control of the aircraft.

    With regard to the technique required for a crosswind correction on takeoff, a pilot should use:

    • A.

      Aileron pressure into the wind and initiate the lift-off at a normal airspeed in both tailwheel and nosewheel-type airplanes

    • B.

      Right rudder pressure, aileron pressure into the wind, and higher than normal lift-off airspeed in both tricycle and conventional-gear airplanes

    • C.

      Rudder as required to maintain directional control, aileron pressure into the wind, and higher than normal lift-off airspeed in both conventional and nosewheel-type airplanes

    Correct Answer
    C. Rudder as required to maintain directional control, aileron pressure into the wind, and higher than normal lift-off airspeed in both conventional and nosewheel-type airplanes
    Explanation
    When taking off in a crosswind, it is important for the pilot to maintain directional control. This is achieved by using rudder as required to counteract the wind and keep the aircraft aligned with the runway. Additionally, aileron pressure into the wind helps to prevent the wind from lifting one wing and causing the aircraft to roll. Finally, a higher than normal lift-off airspeed is necessary to provide extra control and stability during the takeoff roll. These techniques apply to both conventional and nosewheel-type airplanes.

    While taxiing a light, high-wing airplane during strong quartering tailwinds, the aileron control should be positioned:

    • A.

      Neutral at all the time

    • B.

      Toward the direction from which the wind is blowing

    • C.

      Opposite the direction from which the wind is blowing

    Correct Answer
    C. Opposite the direction from which the wind is blowing
    Explanation
    When taxiing a light, high-wing airplane during strong quartering tailwinds, positioning the aileron control opposite the direction from which the wind is blowing is the correct answer. This is because the tailwind will tend to push the aircraft from the rear, causing it to weathervane or turn into the wind. By positioning the aileron control opposite the wind direction, it creates a slight resistance to the wind, helping to maintain a straight taxi path and prevent the aircraft from turning into the wind.

    • C.

      Straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descent

    Correct Answer
    C. Straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descent
    Explanation
    The four fundamentals involved in maneuvering an aircraft are straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descent. These fundamentals are essential for controlling the aircraft's position and altitude. Straight-and-level flight refers to maintaining a constant altitude and heading. Turns involve changing the direction of the aircraft by banking it. Climbs involve increasing the altitude of the aircraft, while descent involves decreasing the altitude. Mastering these fundamentals is crucial for safe and efficient aircraft maneuvering.

    Rate this question:

    Recovery from a stall in any airplane becomes more difficult when its

    • A.

      Center of gravity moves aft

    • B.

      Center of gravity moves forward

    • C.

      Elevator trim is adjusted nosedown

    Correct Answer
    A. Center of gravity moves aft
    Explanation
    When the center of gravity moves aft, it means that the weight of the aircraft is shifting towards the tail. This causes the nose of the aircraft to pitch up, making it more difficult to recover from a stall. In a stall, the airflow over the wings becomes disrupted, and the aircraft loses lift. To recover from a stall, the pilot needs to lower the nose and regain airflow over the wings. However, when the center of gravity is aft, the nose is already pitched up, making it harder to lower the nose and regain lift.

    • B.

      Append the code PAPA to the aircraft call sign during all radio transmissions.

    • C.

      Set codes 7500 on the aircraft transponder.

    Correct Answer
    C. Set codes 7500 on the aircraft transponder.
    Explanation
    Setting codes 7500 on the aircraft transponder is the appropriate action if a pilot becomes involved in hijacking. Code 7500 is the internationally recognized transponder code for indicating a hijacking situation. By setting this code, the pilot alerts air traffic control and other aircraft to the emergency situation, allowing them to take appropriate actions to ensure the safety of the flight. Transmitting code H on 121.5 and appending the code PAPA to the aircraft call sign during radio transmissions are not appropriate actions for a hijacking situation.

    A pilot's most immediate and vital concern in the event of complete engine failure after becoming airborne on takeoff is:

    • A.

      Maintaining a safe airspeed.

    • B.

      Landing directly into the wind.

    • C.

      Turning back to the takeoff field.

    Correct Answer
    A. Maintaining a safe airspeed.
    Explanation
    In the event of complete engine failure after takeoff, maintaining a safe airspeed is the most immediate and vital concern for a pilot. This is because the aircraft needs to maintain enough speed to generate lift and prevent stalling. Without engine power, the pilot must rely on the aircraft's momentum to maintain control and glide to a safe landing spot. Landing directly into the wind or turning back to the takeoff field may not be feasible or safe options depending on the altitude, terrain, and other factors. Therefore, maintaining a safe airspeed is crucial for a successful emergency landing.

    During landing on a runway covered with water or slush which braking technique is most effective?

    • A.

      Refrain from using brakes because the wheels will lock and cause uncontrollable skidding.

    • B.

      Apply breaks firmly and immediately upon runway contact to establish a squeegee or drying action of the tires against the runway surface and use differential braking.

    • C.

      Apply moderate braking after wheels have had ample time to spin up. If a skid develops, release completely and apply moderate differential braking.

    Correct Answer
    C. Apply moderate braking after wheels have had ample time to spin up. If a skid develops, release completely and apply moderate differential braking.

    How can you determine if another aircraft is on collision course with your aircraft?

    • A.

      There will be no apparent relative motion between your aircraft and the other aircraft.

    • B.

      The other aircraft will always appear to get larger and closer at a rapid rate.

    • C.

      The nose of each aircraft is pointed at the same print in space.

    Correct Answer
    A. There will be no apparent relative motion between your aircraft and the other aircraft.
    Explanation
    If there is no apparent relative motion between your aircraft and the other aircraft, it means that both aircraft are moving in the same direction and at the same speed. This suggests that there is a possibility of a collision course, as the two aircraft are not moving away from each other or changing their distance.

    What procedure is recommended if a pilot should unintentionally penetrate embedded thunderstorm activity?

    • A.

      Set power for recommended turbulence airspeed and attempt to maintain a level flight attitude.

    • B.

      The pilot should reverse aircraft heading or proceed toward an area of known VFR conditions.

    • C.

      Reduce airspeed to manuevering speed and thereafter maintain a constant altitude.

    Correct Answer
    A. Set power for recommended turbulence airspeed and attempt to maintain a level flight attitude.
    Explanation
    If a pilot unintentionally penetrates embedded thunderstorm activity, the recommended procedure is to set power for recommended turbulence airspeed and attempt to maintain a level flight attitude. This means adjusting the power to the appropriate level for the aircraft's turbulence airspeed, which helps to minimize the effects of turbulence on the aircraft. Additionally, maintaining a level flight attitude helps to stabilize the aircraft and prevent it from entering dangerous flight conditions.

    Which type of approach and landing is recommended during gusty wind conditions?

    • A.

      A power-on approach and power-on landing

    • B.

      A power-off approach and power-on landing

    • C.

      A power-on approach and power-off landing

    Correct Answer
    A. A power-on approach and power-on landing
    Explanation
    During gusty wind conditions, a power-on approach and power-on landing are recommended. This approach involves maintaining a higher power setting throughout the approach and landing, which helps to counteract the effects of gusty winds. By keeping the power on, the aircraft has more energy and control, allowing the pilot to better handle the variable wind conditions and make necessary adjustments. Additionally, a power-on landing helps to ensure a smoother touchdown and reduces the risk of a hard landing or loss of control.

    Pilots are required to have the anti-collision light system operating:

    • A.

      During all types of operation, both day and night

    • B.

      Anytime the pilot is in the cockpit

    • C.

      Anytime an engine is in operation

    Correct Answer
    A. During all types of operation, both day and night
    Explanation
    The anti-collision light system is required to be operating during all types of operation, both day and night. This is important for the safety of the aircraft and to alert other pilots and ground personnel of the aircraft's presence. The anti-collision lights help to increase visibility and reduce the risk of mid-air collisions. It is not necessary for the pilot to be in the cockpit or for an engine to be in operation for the anti-collision lights to be turned on.

    When taxiing during strong quartering tailwinds, which aileron position should be used?

    • A.

      Neutral

    • B.

      Aileron up on the side from which the wind is blowing

    • C.

      Aileron down on the side from which the wind is blowing

    Correct Answer
    C. Aileron down on the side from which the wind is blowing
    Explanation
    When taxiing during strong quartering tailwinds, the correct aileron position to use is aileron down on the side from which the wind is blowing. This is because the down aileron will create more lift on that side, helping to keep the wing down and prevent the wind from lifting it. This helps maintain control and stability during taxiing in strong tailwinds.

    If severe turbulence is encountered during flight, the pilot should reduce the airspeed to:

    • A.

      Minimum control speed

    • B.

      Design-maneuvering speed

    • C.

      Maximum structural cruising speed

    Correct Answer
    B. Design-maneuvering speed
    Explanation
    During severe turbulence, reducing the airspeed to the design-maneuvering speed is the correct action for the pilot to take. Design-maneuvering speed is the maximum speed at which the aircraft can be safely maneuvered without exceeding its structural limits. By reducing the airspeed to this level, the pilot ensures that the aircraft remains within its safe operating parameters and minimizes the risk of structural damage or loss of control. This allows for better stability and control during turbulent conditions.

    After experiencing a powerplant failure at night, one of the primary considerations should include:

    • A.

      Turning off all electrical switches to save battery power for landing

    • B.

      Planning the emergency approach and landing to an unlighted portion of an area

    • C.

      Maneuvering to, and landing on a lighted highway or road

    Correct Answer
    B. Planning the emergency approach and landing to an unlighted portion of an area
    Explanation
    In the event of a powerplant failure at night, planning the emergency approach and landing to an unlighted portion of an area is the primary consideration. This is because landing on a lighted highway or road may not be feasible or safe due to traffic and obstacles. By planning to land in an unlighted portion of an area, the pilot can minimize the risk of colliding with objects or other aircraft. Additionally, turning off all electrical switches to save battery power for landing may not be necessary or practical depending on the specific circumstances of the powerplant failure.
