  5. If an aircraft with fixed tabs flies right-wing heavy, the

  12. Control cable tension is checked by
    using a tensiometer
  13. Medium-frequency helicopter vibration is caused by
    tail rotor rotation
  14. In flying a helicopter, horizontal flight and airspeed are controlled
    by cyclic pitch and throttle
  15. The purpose of a flap is to
    change the camber of the wing
  16. Slats on the leading edge of a wing
    decrease the stall speed

    permit a change in the direction of a force
  18. Fairleads must
    may not deflect a cable more than 3O
  19. All control surface travels must conform to
    the aircraft's Type certificate Data Sheet
  20. When pins are properly located in their alignment hole, the control surfaces are typically rigged to
    their neutral position
