  1. What is the purpose of Airfiled familiarization?
    Airfield familiarization is essential to personnel learning how to perform their duties for their personal safety and the safety of the aircrew. The interaction between, people, vehicles, support equipment and aircraft in the airfield environment requires all personnel to have a good working knowledge of the airfield and its unique features.
  2. What are the potential hazards of work on a flight deck and how are they mitagated?
    Jet blast, rotor arcs, propellers and jet intakes are potentially life threatening while being FOD free, wearing your PPE, being qualified, and keeping your head on a swivel are essential to safely working on the flight line.
  3. What are the required PPE for working on a flight deck?
    • - Flight deck (steel-toed) safety shoes
    • - Cranial impact helmet
    • - Protective eye goggles
    • - Leather gloves.
  4. What is a runway?
    Paved areas that are used for aircraft takeoff and landing. Runways vary in length at each airfield as determined by the aircraft sizes and weights that will be utilizing them.
  5. What is a threshold marking?
    These are parallel stripes on the ends of the runways. The stripes are 12 feet wide by 150 feet long and designate the landing area.
  6. What is a Overrun area?
    Paved or un-paved section on the ends of the runways that provide a reasonably effective deceleration area for aborting or overshooting aircraft.
  7. What is a MA-1 Series Overrun Barrier?
    Designed to stop tricycle landing gear equipped aircraft not equipped with tail hooks. The MA-1A is always in a standby status, in case there is an aborted takeoff or an emergency overrun landing.
  8. What is Emergency shore based recovery equipment?
    Used during in-flight emergencies that require stopping the aircraft during landing in the shortest distance possible to minimize the chance of injury to pilot or aircrew and damage to the aircraft.
  9. What is a Taxiway?
    Paved areas for aircraft to move between parking aprons, runways, and airfield services.
  10. What is a parking apron?
    Open paved areas adjacent to hangers, fuel, services often called the flight line. Used for parking, servicing, and loading aircraft; they are connected to the runways by taxiways.
  11. What is a Compass calibration pad (Compass Rose)?
    A paved area in a magnetically quiet area where the aircraft compass is calibrated.
  12. What is a runway numbering system?
    Runways are normally numbered in relation to their magnetic heading rounded off to the nearest 10 degrees, i.e., a runway heading of 250 degree is runway 25. If there are 2 runways whose centerline is parallel, the runway will be identified as L (left) and R (right) or 25L or 25R, if there are 3 parallel runways C (center) is added.
  13. What is a rotating airfield beacon?
    When the airport is below VFR weather conditions, day or night, the airport rotating beacon is used to identify the airport's location. It rotates clockwise at a constant speed and military airfields use 2 white lights and one green flashing 12 to 15 times per minute.
  14. What are some safety concerns while working on a flight deck?
    A few of the hazards and safety concerns are oil, grease, and fuel which create slip hazards on the deck and ladderwells. Also jet intakes and exhaust, rotor and propellers arcs are the life threatening hazards present during flight operations.
  15. What safety equipment is required while working on a flight deck?
    • - Flight deck (steel-toed) safety shoes
    • - Protective jersey
    • - Cranial impact helmet
    • - Protective eye goggles
    • - Leather gloves
