What is the purpose of the rudder on an airplane?

Correct! Wrong!

What is ground effect?

Correct! Wrong!

Changes in the center of pressure of a wing affect the aircraft’s

Correct! Wrong!

As altitude increases, the indicated airspeed at which a given airplane stalls in a particular configuration will

Correct! Wrong!

What is one purpose of wing flaps?

Correct! Wrong!

VNO is defined as the

Correct! Wrong!

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).

What does the red line on an airspeed indicator represent?

Correct! Wrong!

Which statement relates to Bernoulli's principle?

Correct! Wrong!

Which color identifies the normal flap operating range?

Correct! Wrong!

Upon encountering severe turbulence, which flight condition should the pilot attempt to maintain?

Correct! Wrong!

When are the four forces that act on an airplane in equilibrium?

Correct! Wrong!

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?

Correct! Wrong!

VSO is defined as the

Correct! Wrong!

Wingtip vortices are created only when an aircraft is

Correct! Wrong!

After takeoff, which airspeed would the pilot use to gain the most altitude in a given period of time?

Correct! Wrong!

Loading an airplane to the most aft CG will cause the airplane to be

Correct! Wrong!

When landing behind a large aircraft, which procedure should be followed for vortex avoidance?

Correct! Wrong!

The maximum speed at which the airplane can be operated in smooth air is

Correct! Wrong!

Why is frost considered hazardous to flight?
