FAA's ILS PRM and SOIA Approach QuestionnaireFAA's ILS PRM and SOIA Approach Questionnaire

FAA's ILS PRM and SOIA Approach Questionnaire (11 Questions)

Produced by the FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center, Advanced Imaging Division ACX-60 in cooperation with FAA Flight Standards, AFS-400 and Flight Technology Incorporated

  1. When conducting closely spaced PRM approaches, the secondary monitor frequency is
    1. Always used by the pilot to transmit to ATC.
    2. Sometimes used by the pilot to transmit to ATC.
    3. Only used by the pilot to monitor ATC.
  2. Pilots may fly the ILS PRM approach:
    1. By hand or using the autopilot, but the breakout must always be hand flown.
    2. Only using the autopilot, but the breakout must be hand flown.
    3. Only be hand flown throughout.
  3. You briefed the ILS PRM approach and as ATC vectors your aircraft onto final, you are informed that ILS PRM approaches are no longer in use, expect the standard ILS approach. You should:
    1. Ask for a delaying vector in order to find and brief the standard ILS approach.
    2. Ask for a clearance to your alternate.
    3. Continue the approach because, having briefed the ILS PRM approach, you have also completed the requirements to conduct the standard ILS approach.
  4. Following the monitor controller's turn instruction while complying with a TCAS RA:
    1. Is forbidden by FAA regulation.
    2. Provides greater margins of safety.
    3. Is at the pilot's discretion.
  5. As you approach the airport, you determine that you only have one operative communications receiver and your ILS glidepath receiver is not working.
    1. You cannot execute the ILS PRM approach.
    2. You can execute the ILS PRM approach.
    3. You can execute the ILS PRM approach, but only if ATC provides altitude information along the final approach course.
  6. In a SOIA procedure (simultaneous ILS PRM and LDA PRM approaches), the course separation rather than the runway separation:
    1. Meets FAA criteria for widely spaced approaches.
    2. Meets FAA criteria for closely spaced (PRM) approaches.
    3. Does not comply with either widely or closely spaced FAA criteria.
  7. The SOIA LDA PRM procedure can be thought of as:
    1. An instrument approach with a visual segment.
    2. An instrument approach
    3. A visual approach.
  8. When conducting SOIA simultaneous ILS PRM and LDA PRM approaches, aircraft are paired. Prior to reaching the LDA MAP, the aircraft conducting the LDA PRM approach will always be positioned by ATC:
    1. To the rear of the ILS aircraft.
    2. Ahead of the ILS aircraft.
    3. Either ahead or behind the ILS aircraft.
  9. If ATC advises the aircraft conducting the LDA PRM approach that there is traffic on the adjacent ILS, the LDA aircraft can proceed past the LDA MAP for a landing if:
    1. The ILS traffic is visually acquired and reported in sight to ATC.
    2. Answer (a) and the runway environment is in sight.
    3. Answers (a), (b), and ATC acknowledges the traffic in sight report.
  10. Between the LDA MAP and the runway threshold, the pilot conducting the LDA PRM approach has the responsibility to:
    1. Keep the ILS aircraft in sight.
    2. Provide wake turbulence avoidance, if applicable.
    3. Both (a) and (b).
  11. The pilot of the LDA aircraft should report the ILS aircraft in sight as soon as practical, but not until the LDA pilot:
    1. Believes he can keep the ILS aircraft in sight during the remainder of the approach.
    2. First has the ILS aircraft and the runway in sight.
    3. Has received a landing clearance.
