keep smiling (and flying)...

Pre-Circuit Solo Exam

 -this is a sample exam only - 

seatbelts and safety harnesses must be worn, at all stages of flight by:

- the pilot when he or she is the sole pilot

civil aviation regulations require that turns onto final approach must:

- be completed not closer than 500 metres from the aerodrome perimeter

a pilot in command shall not consume any alcoholic liquor:

- 8 hours before the departure of the flight

the minimum horizontal distance from cloud for a fixed wing aircraft, operating in class g airspace, is:

- 1500 metres

the fuel system in an aircraft must be checked for water contamination:

- before the first flight of the day and after each refuel

one restriction placed on VFR aircraft, operating at or below 2000ft is:

- navigation must be by visual reference to the ground or water

a student pilot is not permitted to carry passengers unless:

- he/she has passed the GFPT (general flying progress test) and flies within the student pilot area limits

with local QNH set on the subscale, an altimeter will always read:

- height above mean sea level

at a non towered aerodrome, you should not continue an approach beyond the threshold until a preceding light aeroplane, using the same runway, has:

- landed, has vacated the runway and is taxiing away

you are to operate from a non towered aerodrome where there is no ATIS and no other way of knowing the latest QNH. before take off you should:

- set the altimeter to read the aerodrome elevation

one item which must be included in a passenger briefing prior to take off is:

- the use and adjustment of seatbelts

with regard to the rules of the air in the CAR, ... the following is the correct statement:

- an aircraft that is with 70 degrees of the astern (behind) position of an aircraft ahead is considered an overtaking aircraft, if its speed is greater

on which of the following types of flying is a passenger not permitted to be carried?

- flying training given to a person who has not passed the GFPT.

you are to carry out a flight from parafield (GAAP) to the training area in a piper arrow -XYZ. you are also in receipt of ATIS information "charlie", indicating runaway 21 right is being used. your pre taxi call will be:

- "parafield ground, x-ray yankee, zulu, piper arrow, received charlie, vfr for the training area, runway 21 right"

area QNH is:

- the mean sea level pressure set in the altimeter of the area over which the aircraft is flying while on a navigation or cross country exercise.

when the aerodrome QNH is set, during taxi, the altimeter should read:

- airfield elevation

one of the basic rules following an engine failure immediately after take off is:

- never turn back to the runway

a hard pull up on the control column can cause a aeroplane to stall at almost any speed because:

- the critical angle of attack can be exceeded

a white dumb bell symbol has been placed adjacent the primary wind indicator on your airfield. This means:

- use hard surfaces only

an aircraft stall warning device will:

- indicate that the aircraft is approaching the stall at any attitude
