Question 12 of 19
12. Question
You are planning a flight in a 4 seater dual control aeroplane with the following passengers: 2 adults and 2 children aged 5 and 8 weighing 20 kg and 40 kg respectively. Assuming aircraft weight limitations will not be exceeded, which of the following limitations apply and why?
Correct
CAO 20.16.3.12 When the combined weight does not exceed 77 kg, 2 children may occupy the seat if they are seated side by side, restrained by a lap strap only, and the seatbelt is adjusted to secure both children at all times when a seat belt is required to be worn.

Question 13 of 19
13. Question
Find the ISA deviation if the outside air temp is +30ºC at 9000 ft?
Correct
ISA temp at 9000 ft = 15 – 2 x 9 = 3
OAT is +30
ISA Dev is +33Incorrect
ISA temp at 9000 ft = 15 – 2 x 9 = 3
OAT is +30
ISA Dev is +33

Question 15 of 19
15. Question
What airspeed can the aircraft operate not only in smooth air, but with some minor turbulence? The aircraft can safely be flown here, making smooth turns, cruising and without excessive control inputs.
Correct
Incorrect

Question 16 of 19
16. Question
Use your E6b or similar flight computer to determine the following approximate TAS.
OAT: 25
Pressure Alt: 19,000
CAS: 300Correct
Set CAS against pressure altitude. Then set temp against your temp line and read of TAS. Note as a very rough rule of thumb to check and narrow down options use the 2% rule. But do not rely on it to decide between to answers. The 2% rule means CAS increases by 2% per 1000 ft in PA. So 2% x 300 = 6 KT 19 x 6 = 114 As you can see in this case 300 + 114 would have given you the wrong answer, but it would have given you two answers to choose from. The reason 2% is wrong is because TAS is very dependent on temp and the 2% rule just assumes temps will decrease with altitude. Rather than taking into account the exact temps at that altitude on that day.

In an aircraft with MTOW less than 5700 kg, which limitation applies to the carriage of cargo?
Correct
Incorrect

Question 18 of 19
18. Question
Calculate the approximate density altitude using the following.
Elevation 3000 FT
QNH 1013
Temp 20ºCCorrect
1. Find pressure height = Elevation + (1013QNH) x 30 e.g. 3000 ft at QNH 1013, = 3000+ (10131013) x 30 = 3000+ 0 = 3000 ft
2. For the next part of the calculation ONLY, round pressure height to nearest 500 ft
3. Find ISA temp = temp – 2 x the thousands of feet (at the PH) e.g. 20ºC at 3000= 15 – 2 * 3 = 9
4. Take ISA temp away from OAT e.g. 20°C to get ISA deviation = 20° – 9° = 11° ISA dev
5. Multiply ISA deviation by 120 to get pressure correction height e.g. 120 x 11 = 1320 ft
6. Add elevation to pressure correction height to get density altitude e.g. 3000 ft + 1320 ft = 4320 ftIncorrect
1. Find pressure height = Elevation + (1013QNH) x 30 e.g. 3000 ft at QNH 1013, = 3000+ (10131013) x 30 = 3000+ 0 = 3000 ft
2. For the next part of the calculation ONLY, round pressure height to nearest 500 ft
3. Find ISA temp = temp – 2 x the thousands of feet (at the PH) e.g. 20ºC at 3000= 15 – 2 * 3 = 9
4. Take ISA temp away from OAT e.g. 20°C to get ISA deviation = 20° – 9° = 11° ISA dev
5. Multiply ISA deviation by 120 to get pressure correction height e.g. 120 x 11 = 1320 ft
6. Add elevation to pressure correction height to get density altitude e.g. 3000 ft + 1320 ft = 4320 ftHint
1. Find pressure height = Elevation + (1013QNH) x 30
2. Round pressure height to nearest 500 ft
3. Find ISA temp = temp – 2 x the thousands of feet eg 26ºC at 2000 = 26 – 2 * 2 = 22
4. Take ISA temp away from OAT to get ISA deviation
5. Multiply ISA deviation by 120 to get pressure correction height
6. Add elevation to pressure correction height for to get density altitude 
Question 19 of 19
19. Question
Calculate the approximate density height using the following.
Elevation 3000 FT
QNH 1020
Temp 4ºCCorrect
1. Find pressure height = Elevation + (1013 – QNH) x 30 e.g. 3000 FT at QNH 1013, = 3000+ (10131020) x 30 = 3000+ 210 = 2790 FT
2. For the next part of the calculation ONLY, round pressure height to nearest 500 FT = 3000 FT
3. Find ISA temp = temp – 2 x the thousands of feet (at the PH) e.g. 4ºC at 3000= 15 – 2 * 3 = 9
4. Take ISA temp away from OAT e.g. 4°C to get ISA deviation = 4° – 9° = 5° ISA dev
5. Multiply ISA deviation by 120 to get pressure correction height e.g. 120 x 5 = 600 FT
6. Add elevation to pressure correction height to get density altitude e.g. 2790 FT + 600 FT = 2190 FTIncorrect
1. Find pressure height = Elevation + (1013 – QNH) x 30 e.g. 3000 FT at QNH 1013, = 3000+ (10131020) x 30 = 3000+ 210 = 2790 FT
2. For the next part of the calculation ONLY, round pressure height to nearest 500 FT = 3000 FT
3. Find ISA temp = temp – 2 x the thousands of feet (at the PH) e.g. 4ºC at 3000= 15 – 2 * 3 = 9
4. Take ISA temp away from OAT e.g. 4°C to get ISA deviation = 4° – 9° = 5° ISA dev
5. Multiply ISA deviation by 120 to get pressure correction height e.g. 120 x 5 = 600 FT
6. Add elevation to pressure correction height to get density altitude e.g. 2790 FT + 600 FT = 2190 FT
