Flashcards in Air Law Test 2 Deck (9)
Two aircraft flying according to the Visual Flight Rules, one of which is receiving a Radar Information Service (RIS), are closing at an apparently constant relative bearing. There is, thus, a high risk of collision. The fact that one aircraft is receiving an RIS is immaterial to the situation. The Rules of the Air apply. Therefore, the aircraft which has the other on its left has right of way and should maintain:
Course and speed.
While flying at night, as the pilot in command, you see at a constant relative bearing of 010 degrees, and at the same altitude, a steady white light with a green light to its left and a red light to its right. The lights appear to be getting closer. You deduce that you see:
An airship on a collision course with you, to which you must give way.
When may you fly over any congested area of a city, town or settlement at a height from which it would not be possible to land safely in the event of an emergency arising?
Only when necessary for take-off and landing.
When an aircraft is flying, under which flight rules must the flight be conducted?
Either IFR or VFR.
What is the basic presumption about VFR flight?
That the flight will be flown in Visual Meteorological Conditions.
Complete the following sentence. All aircraft registered in the United Kingdom are subject to the provisions of the Air Navigation Order, including the Rules of the Air:
In the airspace of any State provided that the United Kingdom rules do not conflict with the Rules of that State.
The minimum radio and navigation equipment required for VFR flight in Class D airspace is:
Two-way VHF radio, although the requirement for this may be waived in respect of a given flight, with the permission of the relevant ATCUs.
“The height above airfield level of the lowest part of the cloud obscuring more than half the sky. “
