FAA Private Pilot Weather Test 1
This is a timed quiz. You will be given 60 seconds per question. Are you ready?
(Refer to Figure 17.) What wind is forecast for STL at 12,000 feet?
(Refer to Figure 19.) Interpret the weather symbol depicted in Utah on the 12-hour Significant Weather Prognostic Chart.
You plan to phone a weather briefing facility for preflight weather information. You should
The boundary between two different air masses is referred to as a
(Refer to Figure 14.) The intensity and type of icing reported by a pilot is
In which environment is aircraft structural ice most likely to have the highest accumulation rate?
What values are used for Winds Aloft Forecasts?
What should pilots state when telephoning a weather briefing facility for preflight weather information?
(Refer to Figure 12.) Which of the reporting stations have VFR weather?
When warm, moist, stable air flows upslope, it
(Refer to Figure 269, area A.) Just southwest of Circle A what cloud layer is forecast to be over Lake Michigan?
Low-level turbulence can occur and icing can become hazardous in which type of fog?
When the term "light and variable" is used in reference to a Winds Aloft Forecast, the coded group and windspeed is
(Refer to Figure 269, area C.) What cloud layers are forecast in central New York?
What are the standard temperature and pressure values for sea level?

(Refer to Figure 21.) On what frequency can a pilot receive Hazardous Inflight Weather Advisory Service (HIWAS) in the vicinity of area 1?
(Refer to Figure 12.) What are the wind conditions at Wink, Texas (KINK)?
Which weather phenomenon signals the beginning of the mature stage of a thunderstorm?
A nonfrontal, narrow band of active thunderstorms that often develop ahead of a cold front is a known as a
Squall lines are bands of severe thunderstorms that tend to develop ahead of fast-moving cold fronts. These squall lines often contain severe steady-state thunderstorms. This is the single most intense weather hazard for aircraft. Answer A is incorrect because a squall line is a specific type of a prefrontal system. Answer C is incorrect because a dry line is a front across which there is seldom any significant air mass contrast other than moisture content.
