QUIZ

1. Generally speaking, a pilot can control the amount of lift the wings can
generate by altering:

Both A and B

2.This wing type results in less drag and more lift, especially at high speeds:

Tapered wing

3. Weight always acts:

Vertically downward toward the center of the earth.

4. The point at which the coefficient of lift begins to decrease at the peak of the
graph is known as:

Critical angle of attack

5. The wing’s aspect ratio is the relationship between the:

Length and width of the wing

6. During flight, the FAA recommends that pilots

Focus primarily outside on visual references, while verifying using the instruments

7. Use of flaps during landing allows the pilot to:

Both b and c 8. Lift is equal to weight 11. unaccelerated flight. Parasite drag is The result of air resistance as the airplane flies 12. its internal pressure decreases. During straight and level. there is a need to All of the above 13. unaccelerated flight. Newton’s third law states that: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction 10. The principle that states: “As the velocity of a fluid increases. Lift is equal to weight . During straight and level.” is known as: Bernoulli’s principle 9. During a right turn.

since a propeller is an airfoil. thrust is generated from Newton’s Third Law. The only way to recover from a stall is to: Lower the pitch below the critical angle of attack . Use of flaps during landing allows the pilot to: Both b and c 18. the most important factor as to how much lift a wing can produce is related to Angle-of-attack 15. True 16. Similar to lift. increasing power. True 17. especially at high speeds Tapered wing 20.14. When the leading edge and trailing edge are connected with an imaginary line. This wing type results in less drag and more lift. Proper recovery from a stall should include decreasing the angle of attack. When discussing lift. it is referred to as the Chord line 19. and minimizing altitude loss.

21. The most common high-lift device on a general-aviation airplane is Flaps 24. Most airplanes are equipped with a way to manipulate the wings. The best rate of climb allows a plane to Climb the most altitude in the least amount of time . Induced drag is The by-product of lift 26. This wing type are most efficient at high speeds. while less efficient at low speeds Sweptback wing 25. An aerodynamic stall is: When the airflow over the wing separates from the wing’s upper surface. Which of the following is not an example of parasite drag? Induced drag 22. especially at low airspeeds. and thereby minimizing the stalling speed of the aircraft. allowing the increase of lift. The _________ is usually designed into an airfoil to increase the maximum coefficient of lift. resulting in turbulent airflow 23. Camber 27.

This wing type is less efficient than an elliptical wing.28. a stall will occur At the same angle-of-attack 29. For a given airfoil. Rectangular wing . but has better stall characteristics.
