Sample Questions from the JAA ATPL Flight Planning and Monitoring Test Bank

If the pressure altitude is 5,000 feet and the ambient outside air temperature is ISA +20 C what is the density altitude? (Refer to CAP 697 - figure 3.2)The aircraft is using 65% power, flying at 17 500 ft. What range is lost if the 45 minute reserve figures are used rather than the no reserve figures? Details of a flight are as follows:MTOM: 142,500 kgDry Operating Mass: 68,000 kgMaximum Zero Fuel Mass: 85,500 kgMean TAS: 410 ktsDistance P to Q: 3600 NMMean Fuel consumption: 6500 kg/hrReserve Fuel (assume unused): 7500 kgMaximum Landing Mass: 96,000 kgFind the maximum Traffic Load in still air: The still air distance in the climb is 189 Nautical Air Miles (NAM) and time 30 minutes. What ground distance would be covered in a 30 kt head wind? Given:Ground speed: 292 ktsDistance NAM: 93Time: 17 minutesCalculate TAS, Wind component and NGM: From which of the following would you expect to find facilitation information (FAL) regarding customs and health formalities? An aircraft is in cruising flight at FL 095, IAS 155kt. The pilot intends to descend at 500 ft/min to arrive overhead the MAN VOR at 2 000 FT (QNH 1 030hPa). The TAS remains constant in the descent, wind is negligible, temperature standard. At which distance from MAN should the pilot commence the descent?
