91

Drag (during climb) requires increase in thrust.

Need sufficient thrust to continue climb

92

Climb Types

Normal Best rate of climb (Vy) Best angle of climb (Vx)

93

An aircraft instructed to land on Rwy 23L would establish an approach heading of

230 degrees

94

The four aerodynamic forces acting on an airplane are

Drag, lift, thrust, weight

95

Moving the control stick to the right or left affects which aircraft controls

ailerons

96

The tachometer

is not a flight instrument

97

Flaps are generally used

during takeoff during landings

98

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

is cleared to taxi

99

In creating lift

the air moving over the wing moves faster than the air moving under the wing

100

The propeller blades are curved on one side and flat on the other to

produce thrust

101

On the ground, an aircraft is steered by

pushing the rudder peddles

102

Depressing the left rudder pedal would move the tail of the aircraft

right

103

An aircraft on a heading of 300 degrees is heading

Northwest

104

Supersonic means

Faster than the speed of sound

105

What is the standard weight for gasoline used in aircraft

6lbs/gal

106

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

ineffectiveness of the ailerons and elevator

107

What makes an airplane turn

horizontal component of lift

108

Larger aircraft generally tend to

land on longer runways

109

For runway 23L, what does the L indicate

L stands for the left-hand runway at airports with two runways aligned in the same direction

110

Tachometer

indicates the speed at which the engine crankshaft is rotating.
Not a flight instrument!

111

Flaps

Increase lift and drag.

112

Compass headings

360 North 90 East 180 South 270 West

113

Northwest Heading

Falls between 270 and 360 degrees

114

When entering a climb from level flight, the weight of the acft

results in increased drag

115

Turbulence is caused by

convective air currents, obstructions to wind flow, wind shear

116

A minimally safe airspeed descent is principally used

when clearing obstacles during landing

117

When in the down (extended) position, wing-flaps provide

greater lift and more drag

118

An aircraft must travel __________ at 10,000ft than at 1,000ft

faster

119

Are flaps a primary flight control

No

120

When a flt is identified as "heavy" it means

more than 250,000 pounds of gross weight
