Show Answers:

  1. What information is needed to complete the TOLD card?
    • Aircraft information: weight and balance
    • Departure and arrival field conditions: weather and airfield data
    • Aircraft takeoff and landing performance
  2. What are the six variables used to compute takeoff distance using the takeoff distance chart?
    • Temperature
    • Pressure altitude
    • Gross weight
    • Runway slope
    • Wind
    • Obstacle height
  3. In computing landing distance data, what is total landing distance?
    Total ground distance from the 50-foot obstacle height to a full stop with charted configuration
  4. What is RCR, and what are the specific values?
    • Runway conditions reading
    • 26-best condition; 23-dry; 12-wet; 05-icy; 02-worst condition
  5. What should you do before entering the computed headwind component into the appropriate block on the TOLD card?
    Verify that the crosswind component is within acceptable limits
  6. What is an instrument cross-check?
    Setting and maintaining aircraft parameters using reference only to the aircraft instruments
  7. What are the basic categories of flight instruments?
    • Control
    • Performance
    • Navigation
  8. Which performance instruments will give you the first indications of incorrect pitch and bank angle setting?
    • Incorrect pitch: VSI, then altimeter
    • Incorrect bank angle: EHSI and turn/bank indicator
  9. What is crabbing?
    Adjusting your heading in order to fly a straight ground track
  10. In a constant airspeed and power climb, how will your attitude in a climbing turn, compare to a wings-level climb?
    It will be lower because the turn results in a loss of lift and a resultant decrease in climb rate
  11. What is the technique to smoothly lead a level-off from a climb or descent?
    Lead level-off altitude by 10% of the vertical velocity
  12. When accelerating, how will the aircraft tend to react?
    • It will seek the trimmed airspeed by climbing.
    • If power is added, right rudder and trim will be required to compensate for propeller effects
  13. Which taxi clearances are you required to read back?
    Any clearances that include "hold short" instructions
  14. What control inputs should be made during no-wind takeoff?
    Right rudder
  15. What is the purpose of the best rate of climb?
    Achieves cruise altitude as quickly as possible and is also the most fuel efficient
  16. Which instrument is used to maintain pitch and bank?
  17. In a turn, how do you compensate for loss of lift?
    Apply back pressure on the control stick
  18. What information should be included in a standard request for taxi clearance?
    Aircraft ID, current position, type of operation, and intended first destination
  19. When initiating a climb from cruise with the airspeed above 160 KIAS, what is the first action taken?
    Simultaneously increase power to maximum and the pitch to above the normal climb pitch picture
  20. When must you normally proceed straight through initial and NOT execute a break?
    • Insufficient spacing with aircraft on inside downwind
    • Aircraft on straight-in between 5 and 2 miles
    • Aircraft on ELP between high key and low key
  21. What factors would preclude you from requesting a closed pattern?
    • Straight-in between 5 and 2 miles
    • Aircraft on initial
    • Spacing with aircraft on closed downwind
    • ELP between "request high key" and low key
  22. How should the aircraft be positioned at touchdown in a crosswind landing?
    • Fuselage aligned with runway
    • Touchdown on upwind gear
    • Ailerons added as necessary to counter drift
  23. How do you perform a breakout from an Air Force overhead pattern?
    • Execute a climbing turn away from traffic
    • Maintain 200 KIAS and proceed to the reentry point
  24. While landing, what effect will a wide runway have?
    It can make you flare too high or short of the runway
  25. What initial pitch is set to climb at 140 KIAS?
    14°/ bottom of mag compass
  26. What distance from the runway will you normally begin descent on a 500' AGL straight in?
    1 1/4 (VDP occurs between 1 1/4 and 1 2/3 for a 500' straight-in)
  27. When RCR decreases, what happens to takeoff roll?
  28. What are the steps for a constant rate descent?
    Set airspeed and descent rate, use pitch and power to maintain descent rate
  29. What does "carry straight through" on initial mean?
    Maintain altitude and airspeed, turn crosswind at departure end
  30. What must be accomplished on inside downwind?
    Below 150 KIAS, call "gear clear," lower gear and flaps, maintain ≥ 120 KIAS until perch
  31. What is the advantage to climbing out at 160 KIAS?
    Better forward visibility
  32. What information must be read back to the controller?
    Altimeter settings, headings, altitudes departing and assigned
  33. Describe the control and performance concept of flight?
    Set attitude and power, trim, cross check performance, and adjust
  34. During which landing phases are crosswind controls used?
    Throughout the round-out and touchdown
  35. What is the first indication of an incorrect power setting?
    airspeed deviation
  36. Which hydroplaning results from steam caused by burning rubber?
    Rubber reversion
  37. When is nose wheel steering not used?
    High taxi speeds, tight turning
  38. What airspeed is used for best rate of climb?
    140 KIAS
  39. What may result on approach when terrain is hilly?
    Varying crosswinds
  40. What are the 3 phases of landing?
    Round-out, touchdown, landing roll
  41. How may a long narrow runway affect an approach?
    Appear high, flare late
  42. When turning to a heading of 360 degrees, what instrument is the primary reference?
  43. What is the difference between normal rate of climb and a best rate of climb?
    Best rate gets to altitude in minimum time
  44. When initiating a go-arround from the final turn, what altitude and airspeed should you go to?
    500', 200 KIAS
