Question 1

Question
The total drag on an aircraft is at a minimum
Answer
  • At the normal cruise speed
  • Just below normal cruise
  • Just above the stall speed
  • At Vne

Question 2

Question
A spin is the result of
Answer
  • A stall
  • A turn
  • A yaw
  • A stall with yaw present, resulting in an angle of attack difference between the wings

Question 3

Question
Frost on the wings will have the greatest affect by
Answer
  • Increasing weight
  • Changing the shape of the aerofoil
  • Causing an early breakaway of the streamline flow
  • All of the above

Question 4

Question
The angle between the wing chord and the relative airflow is the
Answer
  • Angle of incedence
  • flight angle
  • Angle of attack
  • Riggers angle

Question 5

Question
The 406MHz ELT provides
Answer
  • A reduced accuracy in locating the beacon, reducing search areas
  • A greater accuracy in locating the beacon, reducing search areas
  • A louder and thus more noticeable distress signal
  • Direct link of position information to a computer at the aircraft's base

Question 6

Question
Flaps are used on approach to land to
Answer
  • Lower the nose, reduce the rate of descent and reduce the descent angle
  • Raise the nose, increase the rate of descent and reduce the descent angle
  • Lower the nose, increase the rate of descent and increase the descent angle
  • Slow the aircraft down

Question 7

Question
During a steep turn, more lift is required therefore
Answer
  • A reduced angle of attack is required
  • The stalling angle increases
  • An increased angle of attack is required
  • The pilot must push forwards to prevent a stall

Question 8

Question
In a steady climb, which of the following is correct
Answer
  • Lift=Weight
  • Lift is less then weight
  • Thrust = Drag
  • Drag is greater than thrust

Question 9

Question
If the pitot tube blocks instantaneously, what happens to the airspeed indicator
Answer
  • The indication remains constant at the value it was showing when blocked
  • The indication slowly decreases to zero
  • The indication slowly increases to the maximum
  • The airspeed indicator functions normally

Question 10

Question
For any aircraft
Answer
  • The stall airspeed remains constant and the stalling angle of attack varies
  • The stall airspeed and the stalling angle of attack remain constant
  • The stall airspeed and the stalling angle of attack both vary
  • The stall airspeed varies and the stalling angle of attack remains contant

Question 11

Question
The angle of attack on an aerofoil is the angle between?
Answer
  • The fuselage and the aerofoil
  • The aerofoil chord line and the relative airflow
  • The bottom of the aerofoil and the relative airflow
  • The aerofoil chord line and the horizontal stabilizer chord line

Question 12

Question
Mass balancing of control surfaces is to
Answer
  • Assist the pilot in moving them
  • To prevent the controls becoming too heavy at high airspeed
  • To prevent flutter
  • The ensure they don't return to neutral unless the pilot makes them do so

Question 13

Question
The never exceed speed (Vne) is the maximum
Answer
  • Speed at which aerobatics is permitted
  • Speed at which full control deflection is permitted
  • Speed permitted in smooth air
  • Speed permitted in turbulent air

Question 14

Question
To maintain altitude in level flight lift must remain constant. For this to occur
Answer
  • Angle of attack must increase if airspeed dereases
  • Angle of attack must increase if airspeed increases
  • Angle of attack must decrease if airspeed decreases
  • Angle of attack should be maintained if airspeed increases

Question 15

Question
If an aircraft's indicated stall speed is 45 knots at 3000 feet, what is the stall speed at 6000 feet?
Answer
  • Lower than 45 knots
  • 45 knots
  • Higher than 45 knots
  • 50 knots

Question 16

Question
Which of the following will not cause an increase in stall speed?
Answer
  • A steep turn
  • A steep climb
  • A pull-out from a steep dive
  • Loading two additional passengers

Question 17

Question
Induced drag is caused by the total reaction being inclined rearwards, when is it greatest
Answer
  • Vne
  • At cruise airspeed
  • A low airspeed
  • As low airspeed and high angle of attack

Question 18

Question
The aircraft enters bad turbulence. What should the pilot do?
Answer
  • Speed up to get out of the turbulence faster
  • Slow down to just above the stall
  • Slow down to the bad weather airspeed and lower flap
  • Slow down to the manoeuvring airspeed

Question 19

Question
A spin is
Answer
  • An auto-rotative state with the aircraft experiencing auto-yaw and auto-roll
  • The aircraft flipping over and over
  • A tight descending spiral at high airpseed
  • The aircraft rolling by itself very fast.

Question 20

Question
If the ignition switch is set to off with the engine running and the earth wire to the magneto is broken then
Answer
  • The engine will stop
  • The engine will keep running
  • The engine will backfire
  • The windings will be damamged

Question 21

Question
Lift always acts
Answer
  • 90 degrees to the angle of attack
  • 90 degrees to the relative airflow
  • 90 degrees to the angle of incedence
  • Directly opposite weight

Question 22

Question
At an aerodrome situated at 2500 feet above sea level, the take off distance compared to that at sea level given the same meteorology conditions will be
Answer
  • Shorted due to the lower air density
  • Shorted due to the higher engine porter output due to richer mixtures at altitude
  • Greater because the true airspeed required to produce sufficient lift is greater
  • Greater because the indicated airspeed required is higher

Question 23

Question
Pressure decreases with altitude, and temperature decreases with altitude at the rates of
Answer
  • 27 hPa per 30 feet, 2 degrees per 1000 feet
  • 27 hPa per foot, 1 degree per 1000 feet
  • 1 hPa per 27 feet, 2 degrees per 1000 feet
  • 1 hPa per 1000 feet, 1.98 degrees per 30 feet.

Question 24

Question
Which is the correct order of the Otto Cycle?
Answer
  • Induction, compression, power, exhaust
  • Induction, power, compression, exhaust
  • Power, exhaust, compression, induction
  • exhaust, power, induction, compression

Answer
  • 646
  • -194
  • -86
  • 246
