Final Exam Ansers

1. The correct answer is A. Operating limitations are issued as part of the special airworthiness certificate for Experimental and Special Light Sport aircraft. (FAR 91.327)

2. The correct answer is A. The mnemonic ANDS denotes “accelerate north, decelerate south.” When on east and west headings, the compass will indicate a turn in the direction referenced in the acronym when airspeed is changed. (Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, chapter 7).

3. The correct answer is B. The ability to communicate with the controllers, squawk a unique code, and broadcast altitude are the minimum Class B entry and operating requirements. (FAR 91.131)

4. The correct answer is B. A cold front, for example, is characterized by the cooler air it brings in with it as it passes a given location. While changes in humidity, cloud cover, and precipitation are features associated with frontal passage, they are not always present with every front, as is the temperature change. (Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, chapter 11)

5. The correct answer is C. When departing from a nontowered Class C satellite airport, the pilot must contact ATC as soon as practicable after departing. (FAR 91.130)

6. The correct answer is A. Runways are referenced to magnetic north, so Runway 9 is approximately 90 degrees magnetic, and Runway 27 is approximately 270 degrees magnetic. (Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, chapter 13)

7. The correct answer is B. Acrobatic flight may be conducted in both Class E and Class G airspace, but not below 1,500 feet agl. (FAR 91.303)

8. The correct answer is A. No person may operate an aircraft in formation flight except by arrangement with the pilot in command of each aircraft in the formation, nor may any person operate an aircraft carrying passengers for hire in formation flight. (FAR 91.111)
