    To fly at night,an aircraft is required to carry extra equipment.the following would meet this requirement

    • A.

      An altimeter and nav.lights

    • B.

      Cockpit lighting and turns/slip indicator

    • C.

      Both a and b

    Correct Answer
    C. Both a and b
    Explanation
    To fly at night, an aircraft is required to carry extra equipment for safety purposes. An altimeter is necessary to measure the altitude of the aircraft, while navigation lights are essential for visibility and to indicate the aircraft's position to other pilots. Cockpit lighting is needed to provide adequate illumination for the pilot to read instruments and perform necessary tasks, and a turns/slip indicator helps the pilot maintain proper control and coordination during flight. Therefore, both options a (altimeter and nav. lights) and b (cockpit lighting and turns/slip indicator) would meet the requirement for flying at night.

    For how long are you required to retain your log book?

    • A.

      For 2 years after the date of the last entry

    • B.

      For 1 year after the date of the last entry

    • C.

      For as long as you keep a valid licence

    Correct Answer
    C. For as long as you keep a valid licence
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "for as long as you keep a valid licence." This means that you are required to retain your log book for as long as you hold a valid license. This is important because the log book contains crucial information about your driving activities and can be used for verification or auditing purposes. It is necessary to keep the log book up to date and maintain it as long as you have a valid license to ensure compliance with regulations and to provide accurate records if needed.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which plane has the right of way on the final approach?

    • A.

      The lower aeroplane (light aircraft)

    • B.

      The higher aeroplane

    • C.

      The faster aeroplane

    Correct Answer
    A. The lower aeroplane (light aircraft)
    Explanation
    The lower aeroplane (light aircraft) has the right of way on the final approach because it is generally considered safer to give way to the aircraft that is lower in altitude. This is because the lower aircraft has less visibility and maneuverability compared to the higher aircraft. Additionally, air traffic control usually gives priority to smaller aircraft over larger ones, which is why the lower aeroplane has the right of way in this scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Aircraft heading 355 true.variation 7 degree W.Drift 5 degree port.To obey the quadrantal rule.what altitude must you fly?

    • A.

      6 5000 ft

    • B.

      6 000 ft

    • C.

      5 000 ft

    Correct Answer
    A. 6 5000 ft
    Explanation
    To obey the quadrantal rule, the pilot must fly at an altitude that ends in two zeros (e.g. 5000 ft, 6000 ft, etc.). In this case, the aircraft heading is 355 true, and the variation is 7 degrees west. Since the variation is west, the pilot needs to add it to the true heading, resulting in a magnetic heading of 362 degrees. The drift is 5 degrees to the left (port). To determine the correct altitude, the pilot needs to consider the magnetic heading and the drift. Since the drift is to the left, the pilot should round up the magnetic heading to the nearest multiple of 10 degrees, which is 360 degrees. Therefore, the correct altitude to fly is 6500 ft.

    You see a white light on a constant relative bearing of 355.You are getting closer.What should be your action?

    • A.

      Alter heading to the right to overtake

    • B.

      Alter heading to the left to overtake

    • C.

      Descent

    Correct Answer
    A. Alter heading to the right to overtake
    Explanation
    When you see a white light on a constant relative bearing of 355 and you are getting closer, the correct action is to alter your heading to the right to overtake. By doing so, you will be able to pass the object or vessel emitting the white light safely and maintain a safe distance. Altering your heading to the left would not be the correct action in this situation. Descent is not mentioned as a suitable action in this scenario.

    If on a cross country flight you see a series of green lights fired at you.what must you do?

    • A.

      Alter course

    • B.

      Land at the nearest aerodrom

    • C.

      Climb

    Correct Answer
    B. Land at the nearest aerodrom
    Explanation
    If a pilot sees a series of green lights fired at them during a cross country flight, they must land at the nearest aerodrome. This is because green lights fired at an aircraft indicate that the pilot should land immediately. It could be a signal for an emergency or a navigational aid indicating the presence of a nearby airport or landing area. Therefore, it is crucial for the pilot's safety and the safety of others to follow this instruction and land at the nearest aerodrome.

    • A.

      A man is struck by the propeller of taxying aircraft which has just returned from a cross-country flight the man is seriously injured but aircraft is undamaged.

    • B.

      During maintenance a ladder collapses seriouslyinjuring a man and causing substantial damage to the aircraft.

    • C.

      A man becomes seriously ill during the flight and on landing is rushed to hospital

    Correct Answer
    A. A man is struck by the propeller of taxying aircraft which has just returned from a cross-country flight the man is seriously injured but aircraft is undamaged.
    Explanation
    This scenario describes an incident where a man is struck by the propeller of a taxying aircraft, resulting in serious injury to the man but no damage to the aircraft. This incident would be considered a notifiable air accident because it involves personal injury. Notifiable air accidents are accidents that result in death or serious injury to any person on board the aircraft, or accidents that result in substantial damage to the aircraft.

    • A.

      500 ft

    • B.

      1 000 ft

    • C.

      1 500 ft

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 500 ft
    Explanation
    The lowest height you may fly over the highest fixed object within 2000 ft of the aircraft is 1,500 ft. This means that when flying over a town, you must maintain a minimum altitude of 1,500 ft above the highest fixed object such as buildings or towers. This ensures safety and prevents any potential collisions with these objects.

      FL 110

    • C.

      FL 130

    Correct Answer
    A. 11 000 ft
    Explanation
    The height of the transition altitude in the Singapore terminal area is 11,000 ft. This is the altitude at which aircraft switch from using the local altimeter setting to the standard pressure setting.

  • 12. 

    On descent at what level do you change to QNH?

    • A.

      Transition altitude

    • B.

      Transition layer

    • C.

      Transition level

    Correct Answer
    C. Transition level
    Explanation
    When descending, the transition level is the altitude at which you switch from using the standard atmospheric pressure (QNE) to the local altimeter setting (QNH). This is necessary because different regions have different atmospheric pressures, and using the local QNH ensures accurate altitude readings. The transition level is usually determined by air traffic control and is specific to each area.

  • 13. 

    A pilot is climbing through transition layer in singapore.His altimeter indicates 12000 ft.He will report his position to ATC in term of

    • A.

      Altitude 12 000 ft

    • B.

      FL 120

    • C.

      12 000 ft above ground level

    Correct Answer
    B. FL 120
    Explanation
    The pilot will report his position to ATC in terms of FL 120 because FL (Flight Level) is a standard altitude measurement used in aviation. It is based on a standard atmospheric pressure of 1013.25 hPa and is used to ensure vertical separation between aircraft. FL 120 indicates that the aircraft is flying at a pressure altitude of 12,000 feet above the standard pressure level. This allows ATC to accurately track and maintain separation between aircraft.

  • 14. 

    The quadrantal rule is applicable when flying

    • A.

      In uncontrolled airspace below 3 000 ft

    • B.

      In uncontrolled airspace above 3 000 ft and up to FL 245

    • C.

      In uncontrolled airspace above 3 000 ft

    Correct Answer
    B. In uncontrolled airspace above 3 000 ft and up to FL 245
    Explanation
    The quadrantal rule is applicable when flying in uncontrolled airspace above 3,000 ft and up to FL 245. This rule is used to determine the appropriate cruising level for aircraft in order to maintain vertical separation. According to the quadrantal rule, even flight levels (FL) are assigned to aircraft flying on magnetic tracks of 0-179 degrees, while odd flight levels are assigned to aircraft flying on magnetic tracks of 180-359 degrees. This rule helps to ensure safe separation between aircraft and minimize the risk of mid-air collisions in uncontrolled airspace.

    You are on an IFR flight in controlled airspace.heading 247 M,variation 7 E,Drift 4 port.What should be your altitude?

    • A.

      6 000 ft

    • B.

      6 5000 ft

    • C.

      7 000 ft

    Correct Answer
    B. 6 5000 ft
    Explanation
    Based on the information provided, the correct altitude for the IFR flight in controlled airspace can be determined. The heading of 247M indicates the direction of the flight. The variation of 7E represents the magnetic variation, which means that the magnetic north is 7 degrees east of true north. The drift of 4 port indicates that the wind is blowing from the port side of the aircraft at a speed of 4 knots. Considering all these factors, the appropriate altitude would be 6,500 ft.
