I just came across this quiz at

http://www.fly-eaa.com/trivia/index.php?sectionid=1
Only 7 questions but I think they more may be put on if people use it.
Lets see how you do. It aint that hard

I misses 2 of them, these are the ones I missed

On a typical IFR flight which frequency would you contact first?
When would you use an SID?

Since when does one "contact" the ATIS?.....Isn't the correct term "monitor" the ATIS. The first freq you "contact" is clearance". I know, I'm picky.

Tom,
egg-zactly. I guess you're free to contact ATIS all you like, but you'll only end up stepping on the ATIS broadcast and P-O'ing people busy writing down their WX. Big grin

I'd like to throw a bullshit flag on the DME question as well. If you're going to measure a DME, I suggest using a tape measure. It's just a box among other black boxes in a VOR/DME installation.  Smile

And even if the question was "what unit is the informatin given by a DME displayed in", it could be nm, km, freaking Ångströms (although that'd be a ridiculously high number) or the length of my... no, not that on second thought, it would give ridiculously small numbers.  Big grin It's up to whoever made the instrument in the aircraft.

It measures 'distance'. It measures distance by measuring time. So milliseconds would be more correct than nm...

Oh, and a squak code is something they made up. A squawk code on the other hand...  Big grin

I wouldn't phrase the maximum speed question so broadly either. There's certainly somewhere where 250KIAS/10k does not apply. A 'usually' somewhere would have saved the day.

Nice quiz though. If I find time, I'll try to be constructive and send a Q or two.

Cheers,
Fred

Although I'm more of a photographer than a private pilot in training, I managed to get 7 out of 7, some of them I knew and some I just had a 'hunch' about. SID was departure, and monitoring the ATIS came first....

Funny thing was, there was then a question about ATIS after that and what it is (Automated Terminal information service..?), so surely they could've worded the first correctly..

SAS-A321,
on a multiple choice on an exam I got way back when, one of the answers basically claimed that the tail rotor on an AH64 is there to "cool the ground crew during the loading of the very heavy missiles used".  Nuts

Yup, one of those questions some put in (but completely disregard when it comes to grades) to make sure nobody scores a zero.

Cheers,
Fred
