Airborne Aviation Pre-Solo Quiz #3

This quiz is designed to test your knowledge prior to your pre-solo theory examination.

Question 1

An aircraft must be established on a straight final approach path by:


Question 2

What document contains specific aerodrome procedures and information?

The En Route Supplement Australia provides details for all licensed aerodromes, as well as many unlicensed ones.

Question 3

When must the flying controls be checked for full, free and correct movement on an aircraft?

Refer CAR 244

Question 4

You are listening to a radio transmission and hear the first part clearly, while the second part is a loud squealing noise. The most likely cause is:

normal interference as a result of solar radiation flares

When you observe two people over-transmitting each other it is advisable to let both pilots know that their transmissions were not heard clearly by broadcasting "two stations in together" or similar on frequency.

Question 5

If your engine fails shortly after take-off while on the upwind leg you should:

It is essential to maintain flying speed and avoid stalling the aircraft. Steep turns should be avoided as these consume a lot of altitude. A MAYDAY call can be made but only after a safe flight path has been established.

Question 6

You are on a taxiway and another aircraft approaches you head on. You must:

with care

Refer CAR 160 to 163.

Question 7

The runway is occupied and you are required to go-around. The most correct sequence of actions is:

retract the flaps

The aircraft cannot safely climb unless power is applied.

Question 8

Compared to an approach at full flap, an approach with no flaps at the same IAS will require:

Without the drag the flaps provide the nose attitude will be a lot higher to maintain a given IAS. The glide path is a lot flatter without flaps as a result of the reduced drag.

Question 9

You are lining up behind another aircraft that has just landed on the runway you are planning to take-off from. You must not commence your take-off roll until the landing aircraft has:

Refer AIP ENR 1.1-67 54.2.1

Question 10

During an approach to land what would the symptoms of an impending stall be?

If an impending stall is suspected you should initially apply power and lower the nose to accelerate to an appropriate airspeed then adjust power and attitude as required to regain desired flight path .
