Q8. In certain circumstances it is permissible to fly in uncontrolled airspace(F&G) in IMC conditions and under IFR. What must the pilot be mindfull of:
The quadrantal rule. The VMC minima rules. The minimum height rule. The low flying rules.
Q9. Flight Levels are governed by the International Standard Atmposphere setting of:
1013.2 hPa at each altimeter setting region. 1013.2 hPa at mean sea level. 1013.2 hPa at FL55. 1013.2 hPa at the transition altitude.
Q10. There is a risk of collision if:
Two aircraft are at the same altitude. Two aircraft have the opposite compass bearings. Two aircraft are on the same compass heading. Two aircraft maintain converging relative bearings.
Q11. Night time, for the rules of the air, is classified as being between:
Sunrise and sunset at ground level. 30 minutes before sunset and 30minutes before sunrise at ground level. 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset at ground level 30 minutes after sunset and 30minutes before sunrise at ground level.
Q12. You are on a converging course with another glider at the same height as you on your left hand side. You should:
Turn right Turn left Slow down Do nothing
Q13. Red and green projectiles fired from the ground at 10 second intervals mean that the pilot is:
Approaching a Prohibited Area.
Approaching an active towing site. Approaching an ATZ Approaching an AIAA.
Q14. Lower Airspace meets Upper Airspace at:
FL55 FL100 FL245 FL300
Q15. Which of the following aeronautical chart symbols shows an abandoned airfield?
a) b) c) d)
Q16. Which of the following aeronautical chart symbols marks an Area of Intense Aerial Activity (AIAA)?
Q17. Formation flying is permitted as long as:
The flights will be co-ordinated by a qualified Club Coach. All participating pilots have agreed. All pilots maintain radio contact during the flights. Formation flying is never permitted.
Q18. An aircraft flying in sight of the ground is following the course of a railway line. The pilot must keep the railway line on which side of the aircraft?
Left. Right. It doesn’t matter. Pilots should never follow railway lines due to the hazard posed by overhead cables.
Q19. An aircraft must not fly closer than 500ft to any person, vessel, vehicle or structure except for the purpose of:
Landing or taking off. Dropping tow ropes. Ridge soaring. All of the above.
Q20. At a site that has one area for landing and taking off, such as Perranporth, which of the following aircraft has right of way?
A paraglider on final approach. A paraglider preparing to launch. A hang glider that has just landed. A hang glider on final approach but at a lower height than the paraglider at (a).
Q21. You are planning on undertaking a cross country flight and the lower levels of airspace along your flight path are defined by altitudes. You altimeter should be set to:
1013.2 QNH QFE QNE
Q22. While on an epic cross country flight you realise that you have inadvertently entered a Prohibited Area. Unless instructed otherwise you must:
Maintain a constant heading. Land as soon as possible. Use your radio to contact the nearest Air Traffic Control. Leave the area as quickly as possible.
Q23. The figure ’2.9′ on the following chart denotes:
The minimum altitude above mean sea level that you must have to overfly the area. The maximum altitude of winch launch above mean sea level. The maximum altitude of winch launch above ground level. The minimum altitude above ground level that you must have to overfly the area.
Q24. The air chart symbol below for Little Rissington shows a:
