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..

Regards

Dan

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

The second time I did it I purposely answered every single question wrong.

The quiz itself has a question asked wrong. You never "contact" ATIS. You monitor that frequency.

SID = Standard Instrument Departure

Speaks for itself really. It is basically a set route (given to the pilot prior to departure) put in place to assist with aircraft separation, terrain avoidance, noise abatement and helps minimise ATC's workload.

An example is at Auckland International Aiport in NZ. The PIHA 3 DEPARTURE
it goes like this:
Once airborne it is a mandatory right turn at 500ft to a heading of 180.
The pilot then intercepts the 200 radial from Auckland VOR and maintains 3000ft until 10 DME Auckland.
At 10 DME the aircraft is able to intercept cleared route or do as is directed by radar

That is an easy one. There are a lot more complex SID's around the world but in todays modern airliners you just have to dial them up and the aircraft will fly it.

A STAR (Standard Arrival Route) is kind of similar only, as the name suggests, is used for arrivals.

For those wondering, a SID is a Standard Instrument Departure. A STAR (Standard Terminal Arrival Route) in reverse sort of, if you are familiar with those. A IFR route you are to fly after taking off to get you out of the terminal area without interfering with other traffic. The FAA were renaming them DPs, Departure Procedures, a while ago. As with all things FAA, for reasons clear only to the FAA. They're just intent on having everything ass-backwards from the rest of the world I think...  Big grin
