Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The selection of the code 7600 on a transponder indicates:

    • A.

      Distress

    • B.

      Hi-Jacking

    • C.

      Urgency

    • D.

      Loss of Communications

    Correct Answer
    D. Loss of Communications
    Explanation
    The selection of code 7600 on a transponder indicates a loss of communications. This code is used by pilots to signal to air traffic control that they are unable to communicate via radio. It is often used in situations where there is a failure in the aircraft's communication systems or when there is a loss of contact with air traffic control. By selecting this code, pilots can alert air traffic control to the issue and receive appropriate instructions or assistance.

    The frequency to be used for a blind transmission is:

    • A.

      Frequency of the nearest radar station

    • B.

      The APPROACH frequency

    • C.

    The instuction ''Orbit'' from ATC means that the aircraft should:

    • A.

      Continue with 360 degree turns

    • B.

      Reverse the direction of the turn

    • C.

      Carry out one 360 degree turn only

    • D.

      Carry out a go around

    Correct Answer
    A. Continue with 360 degree turns
    Explanation
    The instruction "Orbit" from ATC means that the aircraft should continue with 360-degree turns. This means that the aircraft should fly in a circular path, making complete revolutions while maintaining a constant altitude. The purpose of this instruction could be to provide separation between aircraft or to delay the aircraft's arrival at a specific location. The aircraft will continue to fly in this circular pattern until further instructions are given by the ATC.

    In order to make messages effective you sould:

    • A.

      Speak slower

    • B.

      Speak at constant volume

    • C.

      Use words twice
