Sample Assignment


Question 1:

image

A Resistance to expansion when heated.
B It is easily compressed, giving more positive control responses.
C It is almost incompressible.
D It can maintain a constant temperature under adverse high temperature operating environments.


Question 2:

image

A Pneumatic can provide greater control power.
B Pneumatics do not require return lines, whereas hydraulic systems do.
C Pneumatic systems do NOT suffer from moisture in the system.
D Pneumatics great advantage is that air is considered to be incompressible.


Question 3:

image

A SG is NOT effected.
B SG decreases with temperature rise.
C SG increases with temperature rise.


Question 4:

image

A When operations are at low altitudes/low temperatures.
B At all altitudes when air temperature is low.
C At low altitudes at any temperature.
D At high altitudes at all times.


Question 5:

image

A Use a cross-bleed start to prevent starter motor overheating.
B Use a cross-bleed start to prevent a hot start.
C Motor-over using the starter motor to prevent a hung start.
D Motor over to prevent torching when re-starting.


Question 6:

image

A Initially increase, then decrease.
B Remain unchanged.
C Increase steadily.
D Decrease steadily, then increase again.
E Decrease steadily.


Question 7:

image

A Turboprop less capable of lifting heavy loads off short runways.
B Turboprops have higher SFC at low altitudes than do turbojets.
C Lower propulsive efficiencies at high subsonic Mach numbers.
D Less effective reverse thrust capability during landing operations.


Question 8:

image

A Monitor autopilot and ILS ground station signal integrity.
B Monitor only autopilot, and autopilot support system integrity.
C Monitor only ILS ground station signal integrity.


Question 9:

image

A Aid in the de-fuelling process.
B Ensure the tank walls do NOT rupture when in turbulence, or during manoeuvres.
C Prevent the spread of fire, should a bleed air duct leak occur near the fuel cell.
D Provide a system whereby fuel can be jettisoned overboard in an emergency.


Question 10:

image

A In Faulty Towers, and usually involves a disaster, and a thick ear.
B On aircraft that do NOT have triple hydraulic system redundancy.
C On all air transport aircraft, irrespective of the number of redundant hydraulic control systems provided.
D Only on those aircraft that employ 1 hydraulic channel for yaw damper operation.
