Airborne Aviation Camden CTAF Quiz #1

This quiz is designed to test your knowledge of Camden CTAF procedures.

Question 1

What is the frequency of the Camden CTAF?

121.9 MHz

Refer to AIP ERSA.

Question 2

Camden CTAF has an AFRU (Automatic Frequency Response Unit). When making a radio call inbound you hear a single beep after your transmission, this indicates:

Refer to AIP GEN 3.4 paragraph 3.4 - A single beep indicates other transmissions (longer than 2 seconds) have been made in the preceding 5 minutes and that your transmission has been received by the CTAF. You should expect that there may be other aircraft operating in the CTAF.

Question 3

You are planning on reporting inbound at Mayfield. Mayfield could be described as:

south of Bent's Basin

Refer to AIP ERSA. Ensure you are flying over the actual inbound point when reporting as such.

Question 4

You are approaching the aerodrome from Picton and see a glider converging from your left at the same level. Your course of action would be to:

Refer to CAR 161. The glider area on the southern side of the runway complex should not be over-flown below 2,300' AMSL. We recommend joining from The Oaks rather than Picton to stay well clear of gliding activity.

Question 5

How must you join the circuit when flying VFR at Camden under CTAF(R) procedures?

You can join any leg other than base

Refer to AIP ERSA

Question 6

You are flying a Cessna 172, what is the circuit altitude at Camden?

Refer to AIP ERSA

Question 7

Question 8

What is the preferred runway at Camden?

Refer to AIP ERSA. Wind or a rising sun can see you using a non-preferred runway.

Question 9

How must you depart from Camden when CTAF procedures apply?

Be sure to track clear of inbound approach points to Camden when departing.

Question 10

What is the normal downwind spacing for a circuit in a typical single-engine piston aircraft?

There is no such thing as a normal spacing

Refer to AIP ENR 57.1.5 - Flying wide circuits unnecessarily slows the pace of the circuit down and may prevent you from being able to glide to the runway in the case of an engine failure.
