This is a timed quiz. You will be given 60 seconds per question. Are you ready?
Why is frost considered hazardous to flight?
Wingtip vortices are created only when an aircraft is
What is ground effect?
The maximum speed at which the airplane can be operated in smooth air is
VSO is defined as the
Upon encountering severe turbulence, which flight condition should the pilot attempt to maintain?
What is one purpose of wing flaps?
As altitude increases, the indicated airspeed at which a given airplane stalls in a particular configuration will
Which color identifies the normal flap operating range?
If an airplane weighs 4,500 pounds, what approximate weight would the airplane structure be required to support during a 45° banked turn while maintaining altitude?
Which V-speed represents maximum landing gear extended speed?
When landing behind a large aircraft, which procedure should be followed for vortex avoidance?
What is the purpose of the rudder on an airplane?
After takeoff, which airspeed would the pilot use to gain the most altitude in a given period of time?
Loading an airplane to the most aft CG will cause the airplane to be
Which statement relates to Bernoulli's principle?
Changes in the center of pressure of a wing affect the aircraft’s
VNO is defined as the
VNO is the maximum structural cruising speed (airspeed indicator upper green arc limit). VNO should only be exceeded in smooth air. FAR 1.2. Answer A is incorrect because the normal operating range is indicated by the entire green arc on the airspeed indicator. Answer B is incorrect because the never-exceed speed is VNE, (the red radial line on the airspeed indicator).
