The flashcards below were created by user RobbHawks on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. Each pilot in command shall, before beginning a flight, become familiar with all available information concerning that flight. This information must include:
    • 1. weather reports and forecasts, fuel requirements, alternatives available if the planned flight cannot be completed.
    • 2. runway lengths at airports of intended use.
    • 3. the takeoff and landing distance data contained in POH.
    • 4. aircraft performance under expected values of airport elevation and runway slope, aircraft gross weight, and wind and temperature.
  2. During takeoff, en route, and while landing, all flight crew shall wear what?
    Safety belt.
  3. During takeoff and while landing, all flight crew shall wear what?
    Safety belt and shoulder harness.
  4. When may a crew member not have to where a shoulder harness during takeoff and landing?
    When one is not provided for that seat, or, if by wearing it he would be unable to perform his duties.
  5. What should be included in a pilot's briefing?
    How to fasten and unfasten, and when to wear a safety belt and shoulder harness.

    Inform all passengers to fasten seat belts/safety harnesses.
  7. What must an aircraft provide for every passenger 2 years and older?
    A seat equipped with a seatbelt
  8. What is an exception that allows a passenger to sit on the floor of an aircraft?
    If the passenger is on the aircraft for the purpose of parachuting.
  9. What type of controls must an airplane have for flight instruction?
    Dual Controls
  10. When might flight instruction take place with a single functioning throw-over control?
    • 1. The instructor determines that the flight can be handled safely.
    • 2. The instruction is for IFR training of licensed pilot.
  11. How close can a pilot operate an aircraft to another?
    Not so close as it might create a collision hazard.
  12. When may a pilot operate an aircraft in formation flight?
    • 1. When all pilots involved agree by prior arrangement.
    • 2. None of the aircraft are carrying passengers for hire.
  13. What aircraft has right of way over all other aircraft?
    An aircraft in distress.
  14. Name the order of aircraft right of way.
    • 1. Balloon
    • 2. Glider
    • 3. Aircraft towing or refueling
    • 4. Airship
    • 5. Airplane / rotocraft
  15. Which aircraft has the right away when one is approaching the other at an angle?
    The aircraft to the right of the other has right of way.
  16. What should both aircraft do if they are approaching each other more or less head-on?
    Both should alter course to the right.
  17. When a faster aircraft over takes a slower one, who has the right of way and what should the yielding aircraft do?
    The slower aircraft has the right of way. The overtaking aircraft should alter course to the right and pass well clear.
  18. What aircraft has right of way during landing?
    • 1. Aircraft on final approach.
    • 2. Lower of two aircraft when more than one aircraft is on final approach. This shall not be used to "cut in line."
  19. What is the maximum airspeed bellow 10,000 feet MSL?
    250 knots
  20. When is the speed limit on 200 KIAS?
    • 1. At or Under 2500 AGL within 4 nm of Class C or D airspace
    • 2. Airspace underlying Class B or in a VFR corridor through Class B.
    • 3. If the minimum safe airspeed for any partiuclar operation is greater than the maximum speed.
  21. What are the general principles of safe altitude?
    • 1. Anywhere: Allowing an emergency landing without undue hazard if an engine fails.
    • 2. Congested areas: 1000' above the highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2000' of the aircraft.
    • 3. 500' minimum over any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure in sparsely populated areas.
  22. What should your altimeter be set if flying 17,999' or less?
    • Current reported altimeter setting as reported by a station within 100 nm of aircraft.
    • 2. If information is unobtainable, use the altimeter setting fro the departing airport.
  23. What altimeter setting should be used above 18,000'?
    29.92 HG
  24. When is it permissible to deviate from ATC clearance and instructions?
    Except in an emergency, no person may operate an aircraft contrary to an ATC instruction in an area in which air traffic control is exercised.
  25. When should a pilot who has deviated from an ATC clearance notify the ATC of the deviation?
    ASAP
  26. When shall a pilot who has been given priority by an ATC in an emergency file a report to the ATC manager?
    Within 48 hours to the manager of that ATC facility, if requested by ATC.
