Which aircraft has the right-of-way over all other air traffic?
An aircraft in distress
What action is required when 2 aircraft of the same category converge, but not head-on?
The aircraft on the left shall give way
An airplane and an airship are converging. If the airship is left of the airplane's position, which aircraft has the right-of-way?
the airship
What action should the pilots of a glider and an airplane take if on a head-on collision course?
both pilots should give way to the right
When 2 or more AC are approaching an airport for the purpose of landing the right-of-way belongs to the AC
at the lower altitude, but it shall not take advantage of this rule to cut infront of or to overtake another
Except when necessary for takeoff or landing, what is the minimum safe altitude required for a pilot to operate an aircraft over congested areas
1,000 ft above highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2,000 ft of the AC
When taxiing with strong quartering tailwinds, which aileron positions should be used?
Aileron down on the side from which the wind is blowing
Which aileron positions should a pilot generally use when taxiing in strong quartering headwinds?
Aileron up on the side from which the wind is blowing
Which wind condition would be most critical when taxiing a nosewheel equipped high-wing airplane?
Quartering tailwind
How should the flight controls be held while taxiing a tricycle-gear equipped airplane into a left quartering headwind?
Left aileron up, elevator neutral
How should the flight controls be held while taxiing a tailwheel airplane into a right quartering headwind?
Right aileron up, elevator up
How should the flight controls be held while taxiing a tailwheel airplane with a left quartering tailwind?
Left aileron down, elevator down
Prior to starting each maneuver, pilots should
visually scan the entire area for collision avoidance
What procedure is recommended when climbing or descending VFR on an airway
Execute gentle banks, left and right for continuous visual scanning of the airspace
What effect does haze have on the ability to see traffic or terrain features during flight?
All traffic or terrain features appear to be farther away than their actual distance
While operating in class D airspace, each pilot of an AC approaching to land on a runway served by a VASI shall
maintain an altitude at or above glide slope until a lower altitude is necessary for a safe landing.
Airport taxiway edge lights are identified at night by
blue omnidirectional lights
A slightly high glide slope indication from a precision approach path indicator is
3 white lights and 1 red light
An airport's rotating beacon operated during daylight hours indicates
that weather at the airpor located in Class D airspace is belpw basic VFR weather minimums
The numbers 9 and 27 on a runway indicate that the runway is orientated approximately
90 degrees and 270 degrees magnetic

4 nautical miles
Unless otherwise specified, Federal Airways include that Class E airspace extending upward from
1,200 feet above the surface up to and including 17,999 MSL

Class B airspace and within 30 miles of the Class B airport
In which type of airspace are VFR flights prohibited?
Class A
No person may take off or land an aircraft under basic VFR at an airport that lies within Class D airspace unless the
ground visibility at that airport is at least 3 miles
The vertical limit of Class C airspace above the primary airport is normally
4,000 ft AGL
The normal radius of the outer area of Class C airspace is
20 nautical miles
Under what condition may an AC operate from a satellite airport within Class C airspace?
the pilot must contact ATC as soon as practicable after takeoff
What action should a pilot take when operating under VFR in a Military Ops Area(MOA)?
Exercise extreme caution when military activity is being conducted
The lateral dimensions of Class D airspace are based on
the instrument procedures for which the controlled airspace is established
With certain exceptions, class E airspace extends upward from either 700 ft or 1200 ft AGL to, but does not include
18000 ft MSL
