Question 12 of 21

Medal-premium 1

3314. What most pilot be aware of as a result of ground effect?

Question 15 of 21

Medal-premium 1

3827. When taking off or landing at an airport where heavy aircraft are operating, one should be particularly alert to the hazards of wingtip vortices because this turbulence tends to
