1

Force necessary to overcome gravitational force to keep the airplane flying is termed

Lift

2

Ailerons are used primarily to

Roll the airplane

3

Ailerons are located

On the outer edge of the wings

4

Pitch makes the airplane

Go up and down

5

Bank makes the airplane

Roll or turn

6

The four aerodynamic forces acting on an airplane are

Drag, lift, thrust and weight

7

An airplane wing is designed to produce lift resulting from relatively

Positive (High) air pressure below the wings surface and negative (Low) air pressure above the wings surface

8

Flight Instruments

Airspeed Indicator, Altimeter, Attitude Indicator, and Vertical Velocity Indicator

9

Engine instruments

Tachometer ammeter (battery)

10

Altimeter

Altitude in MSL

11

Attitude

False Horizon

12

Vertical Velocity

How many feet per minute climbing/diving

13

Tachometer

Engine RPMS

14

Ammeter

Batter Power

15

Forces acting on an aircraft in a steady flight condition (no chance in speed or flight path)

Lift equals weight thrust equals drag

16

A flashing green air traffic signal directed to an aircraft on the surface is a signal that the pilot

Is cleared to taxi

17

Steady red light signal from the tower to the aircraft approaching to land

Continue circling

18

Flashing red light signal from the tower to aircraft approaching to land

Airport is unsafe for landing

19

Propeller blades are curved on one side and flat on the other side to

Produce thrust

20

When in the down (extended) position wingflaps provide

Greater lift and more drag

21

What makes an airplane turn

Horizontal componenet of lift

22

What is one advantage of an airplane said to be inherently stable

Airplane will require less effort to control

23

If the elevator trim tabs on the airplane are lowered, the plane will tend to

Nose up

24

The pilot always advances the throttle during a

Climb

25

The pilot of an airplane can best detect the approach of a stall by the

Ineffectiveness of the ailerons and elevator

26

It is ordinarily desirable to provide an unusually long flight strip at municipal airports for the take-off of

Heavily loaded ships in still air

27

A closed runway is marked on an airfield diagram with

X X X

28

Over run is marked on an airfield diagram with

>>>

29

The rearward retarding force of airplane drag is opposed by

Thrust

30

Cowling is located

Around the engine
