The most severe wake turbulence is produced by:
  
large aircraft during cruising flight.
small aircraft during cruising flight.
small aircraft during take-off or landing.
large aircraft during take-off or landing.

An aircraft loaded with the aft c.g. limit exceeded will be:
  
difficult to put into a stall or spin.
nose heavy.
easy to stall,and spin recovery will be more difficult.
difficult to get off the ground.

Given that the C of G limits for the sailplane below are:
Forward - Sta. 79.00 and Rear - Sta. 85.00; Empty weight 612 lbs; Gross weight 1040 lbs.; Empty arm 96.12 inches. If there is a 170 lb pilot in the front and a 150 lb pilot in the rear:
  
The aircraft is loaded properly.
The C of G is within limits but the gross weight is not.
The aircraft is nose heavy.
The gross weight is within limits but the C of G is not.

Every owner of an aircraft shall preserve the Aircraft Journey Log for:
  
three years after the date of the last entry in the log.
only if there is a valid certificate of airworthiness.
two years after the date of the last entry in the log.
the life of the aircraft.

Flight crew licences, CofR, CofA, radio licence and journey log.
Flight crew medical and radio certificates, CofR, and CofA.
CofA, CofR, aircraft technical log, and operating limitations placard.

If a pilot finds an ATC clearance unacceptable he should:
  
acknowledge the clearance and act only on that deemed acceptable.
refuse the clearance without giving a reason.
refuse the clearance giving reasons for the refusal.
acknowledge the clearance but take no action.

Under Air Regulations, who is authorized to demand that a licence, certificate, or permit be produced for inspection?
  
A Peace Officer, Officer of Customs or Immigration.
An airport operator or Chief Flying Instructor.
Any person responsible for flight operations.
A Peace Officer,Officer of Customs or Immigration,or any person authorized by the Minister of Transportation.

In radio telephony the signal which means grave and imminent danger threatens, and immediate assistance is required is the spoken word:
  
Mayday
Pan
Alert

123.3, 123.4 mHz
126.7, 121.5
123.4, 123.5
122.8, 123.0

IDevice Question Icon Multi-choice
If a thin coating of frost, ice, or snow forms on the wings of an airplane, the takeoff shouldn't be attempted since:
  
the coating will disturb the airflow over the wings and destroy lift.
the added weight may overload the airplane.
the covering is cold and brittle.
the wing's shape has been altered due to contraction.

Which speed would be affected by a change in wind speed and direction?
  
the true airspeed.
the indicated airspeed.
the ground speed.
the speed of sound.

Landing through a strong wind gradient, the glider's airspeed may:
  
increase.
remain constant.
fluctuate wildly.
decrease.

The flight manual states that the maximum cross-wind landing component applicable to a particular glider is 090°/10 KT. Which wind velocity will permit landing within this limit when landing on runway 27?

  
240° M/24 KT.
300° M/26 KT.
290° M/20 KT.
330° M/15 KT.

During an approach to land on an upsloping runway, the pilot may experience the illusion that the aeroplane is:
  
lower than it actually is.
closer in than it actually is.
approaching faster than it actually is.
higher than it actually is.

To maintain an IAS of 50 KT on approach through a wind gradient with a decreasing head wind, the pilot should:
  
pitch the nose up.
gradually apply spoilers.
maintain a constant pitch attitude.
pitch the nose down.

When turning from downwind to base leg for landing, a strong wind could cause a pilot to experience an illusion of:
  
skidding.
side-slipping.
overbanking.
increasing pitch.

Whenever practicable, pilots operating VFR en route in uncontrolled airspace should continuously monitor:
  
126.7 mHz
121.5 mHz
123.4 mHz
123.0 mHz

The VHF emergency frequency is:
  
121.9 mHz
121.5 mHz
123.0 mHz
126.7 mHz

Before setting out on any VFR flight, a pilot is required to:
  
file a flight plan or flight itinerary.
obtain a weather briefing from the nearest Flight Service Station.
perform a proper pre-flight inspection of the aircraft.
be familiar with all available information appropriate to the flight.
