About the Aeroplane

a magneto uses the battery makes a spark at the spark plug

- false


to earth the magnetos, there is a magneto switch in the cockpit

- true


the left magneto feeds sparks to the left cylinders

- false


turning the magneto switch to the left, the right magneto is being earthed

- true


to charge the battery a generator is used

- true


to supply power for ignition, the alternator is used

- false


switching on the key for the magnetos the fuel gauges should indicate

- false


at low revs the alternator will charge

- true


turning off the master switch disconnects the battery

- true


the starter motor is powered directly by the generator

- false

circuit breakers and fuses do the same purpose
- true

fuses protect circuit breakers from overheating
- false

circuit breakers need to be reset once (or soon as) tripped
- false


engine cooling is helped with the oil system
- true

low oil pressure can cause high temperatures
- true

an EGT (exhaust gas temperature) is slow to respond to temperature changes
- false

low oil pressure indicates not enough oil
- false

to reduce engine temperatures, cowl flaps (if fitted) are opened
- true

oil temperature gauge gives an immediate warning of changes in engine temperature
- false

during the descent, gills are closed
- true

the majority of modern light aircraft use a semi-monocoque construction
- true

monocoque construction is a framework of formers and stringers
- false

fabric covered aircraft do not reply on the skin for structural strength
- true

a small tear or crack in an metal aircraft doesn't weaken it's structure
- false

monocoque aircraft use a girder construction
- false

serious damage to main spar may be displayed by wrinkles in the skin of the wing
- true

dihedral is common on low wing light aircraft
- true

gentle stall characteristics are the purpose of washout
- true

right rudder trim tends to turn the aircraft to the right
- true

to relieve back pressure on the stick, the elevator trim tab is moved up
- false
vacuum pressure is used by pressure instruments
- false

the altimeter, asi (air speed indicator) and vsi (vertical speed indicator) all use static pressure
- true

asi compares static and dynamic pressures
- true

altimeter has errors caused by changes in atmospheric pressure
- true

when the qnh changes, the asi needs to be reset
- false

an error in all 3 gyro instruments is lag
- false

at high altitude, asi has serious errors
- true

high temperatures cause asi to under read
- true

vsi doesn't suffer from lag
- false

vsi has a small bleed hole to equalise pressure
- true

cockpit air is an alternate static source
- true

cabin air is used by vacuum gyro instruments
- true

the ah (artifical horizon), di (direction indicator) and vsi (vertical speed indicator) all use gyroscopes
- false

many ah's may topple with large bank or pitch angles
- true

di holds the correct direction with the compass
- false

low vacuum can cause problems with the gyro instruments
- true

compass shows direction relative to true north
- false

variation changes from 1 aircraft to another
- false

deviation is shown on all navigation maps
- false

during takeoff, compass acceleration error occurs
- true

in a turn, a compass shouldn't be trusted
- true

a compass swing is used to calculate the deviation
- true

the aircraft's radio may cause compass errors
-true
