Flashcards in Test Prep Deck (23):
(Refer to Figure 20.) Why would the small flag at Lake Drummond in area 2 of the sectional chart be important to a Remote PIC?
The flag indicates a VFR check point for manned aircraft, and a higher volume of air traffic should be expected there.
According to 14 CFR part 107, an sUAS is a unmanned aircraft system weighing
Less than 55lbs.
(Refer to figure 15) In the TAF from KOKC, the clear sky becomes
overcast at 2,000 feet during the forecast period between 2200Z and 2400Z.
During your preflight inspection, you discover a small nick in the casing of your sUAS battery. What action should you take?
Follow the manufacturer's guidance.
When loading cameras or other equipment on an sUAS, mount the items in a manner that
Does not adversely affect the center of gravity.
According to 14 CFR part 107, what is required to operate a small UA within 30 minutes after official sunset?
Use of anti-collision lights.
What are some characteristics of stable air?
Poor surface visibility. and steady precipitation.
(Refer to Figure 20.) Who would a Remote Pilot in Command contact to "CHECK NOTAMS" as it is noted in the CAUTION box regarding the unmarked balloon?
Which technique should a pilot use to scan for traffic?
Systematically focus on different segments of the sky for short intervals
You are a remote pilot for a co-op energy service provider. You are to use your UA to inspect power lines in a remote area 15 hours away from your home office. After the drive, fatigue impacts your abilities to complete your assignment on time. Fatigue can be recognized
as being in an impaired state.
Outside control tower hours, class D airspace is
How often is the Remote PIC required to inspect the sUAS to ensure that it is in a condition for safe operation?
Before each flight
A stable air mass is most likely to have which characteristics?
Poor surface visibility.
What are the characteristics of stable air?
Poor visibility and steady precipitation.
What are characteristics of unstable air?
Turbulence and good surface visibility.
(Refer to Figure 59, area 2.) The chart shows a gray line with "VR1667, VR1617, VR1638, and VR1668." Could this area present a hazard to the operations of a small UA?
Yes, this is a Military Training Route from 1,500 feet AGL and below.
(Refer to Figure 21, area 2.) What is the floor of controlled airspace along V15?
1200 ft AGL
What are characteristics of a moist, unstable air mass?
Cumuli-form clouds and showery precipitation.
What action should a remote-pilot take when operating in a Military Operations Area (MOA)?
Exercise extreme caution when military activity is being conducted
The most comprehensive information on a given airport is provided by
The Chart Supplements U.S. (formerly Airport/Facility Directory)
If an unstable air mass is forced upward, what type clouds can be expected?
Clouds with considerable vertical development and associated turbulence.
(Refer to Figure 20.) How would a remote PIC "CHECK NOTAMS" as noted in the CAUTION box regarding the unmarked balloon?
By obtaining a briefing via an online source such as 1800WXBrief.com.
