Flashcards in MET exam questions Deck (20)
An aircraft flies from aerodrome „A“, where QNH is given as 1020 hPa, to aerodrome „B“, where the QNH is given as 999 hPa. Aerodrome „A“ is 800 ft above msl. and aerodrome „B“ is 300 ft above msl. If the altimeter sub scale is not changed from 1020, what is the altimeter indication on landing (1hPa = 30ft)
a. -130 ft
b. 330 ft
d. 930 ft
Lenticular clouds observed above the top of a range of hills seen from an A/C that is approaching from the downwind or leeward side of the range, indicates the possibility of?
Strong downdraughts immediately before the ridge of the range is reached, with possibility of severe turbulence in or below roll cloud with turbulence and strong updraughts after passing the ridge to the windward side
If the direction of the wind has changed from north-westerly to westerly, it is said to have:
What is the significance of tightly spaced isobars?
They indicate a large pressure gradient and strong winds
In the Northern hemisphere, how would the wind in the evening be described compaerd to the surface wind at 1600LMT?
What is the density at sea level in the International Standard Atmosphere?
If the direction of the wind has changed from westerly to north-westerly, it is satid to have:
(Veer clock, Backed counter)

Compared to ISA, what does warm air do to the distance represented by 1 hPa change in pressure?
With which setting on the altimeter subscale will the altimeter read zero at aerodrome level?
