1

What are aircraft performance tables often based on

Pressure altitude

2

Take off distance available is the take off run Available +

Clearway

3

VAT the target threshold speed, will provide a margin above the stalking speed in the landing configuration of

30%

4

Take off without flap will give

A longer ground run but a steeper climb

5

A light aircraft in the normal category is permitted to undertake

Normal flying, no spinning or aerobatics and bank angles of up to 60%

6

Rate of climb is defined as

The amount of height gained per unit of time

7

Increasing the all up weight will have what effect on climb performance

Climb performance will be degraded

8

Aerodrome Elevation is 990ft qfe is 992 the pressure altitude is

630ft

1013 - 992 =21
21 x 30 =630

9

Aerodrome Elevation is 600ft qfe is 998 pressure altitude is...

450ft

1013 - 998 =15
15 x 30 = 450

10

In a piston engine to fly for maximum range a pilot should select

A speed just above the minimum drag speef

11

In a piston engine to fly for maximum endurance a pilot should select

A lower airspeed than for maximum range and the lowest safe altitude

12

An overweight aircraft will

handle and perform poorly and may suffer structural damage

13

In the UK published take off performance is based ona

Level and dry hard surface

14

A 2% down hill slope will increase the landing distance by...

10%

15

What gradient of a 2000ft runway which has threshold Elevations of 415ft and 315ft

2.9%

415 - 357 = 58

58 / 2000

0.0029 x 100 = 2.9%

16

Guidelines published in an AIC recommend that when calculating take off distance, the public transport take off factor should be applied to all flights. The factor is

1.33

17

The airspeed to achieve maximum range is

the speed where the power:airspeed ratio is the least

18

In Comparison to a flapless takeoff, using a small flap setting will:

Reduce the stalling, liftoff and take off safety speeds

19

An increase in aircraft weight of 10% will

increase the landing distance by 1.1 or 10%

20

Using a runway with a down slope will require

a longer landing distance but shorter take off distance

21

Compared to an aerodrome at sea level, when operating from an aerodrome having a high pressure altitude will lead to:

a longer landing distance and longer take off distance

22

Assuming that fuel consumption is directly related to the power delivered by the engine, which point represents the airspeed at which to fly for maximum endurance:

The earliest point of the power airspeed curve

23

If the stalling speed of a particular aircraft in the landing configuration (Vso) is 50kts, therefore the minimum approach speed is approximately:

65kts

this is 30% above 50kts

24

When landing with a tailwind, the ground speed will be

Greater than TAS

25

Assuming that fuel consumption is directly related to the power generated by the engine, what point represents the best speed to fly for maximum range

The middle of the graph

26

An aircraft having a lift drag ratio of 6:1 will have a maximum gliding range from 5000ft of

5nm

6*5000 = 30000
30000 / 6000 = 5nm

27

When compared to a lightly loaded aircraft, to achieve the maximum glide range in a heavy aircraft.

a faster speed must be used

28

What is zero fuel mass

All passenger and cargo but no fuel

29

Using a high airspeed than that recommended in the flight manual during an approach to landing will have what effect

it will increase the landing distance

30

ice on an aircrafts wings will

increase weight and drag and seriously reduce the lift generated
