Question 1:

An aircraft is flying at MACH 0.84 at FL 330. The static air temperature


is -48°C and the headwind component 52 Kt. At 1338 UTC the controller
requests the pilot to cross the meridian of 030W at 1500 UTC. Given the
distance to go is 570 NM, the reduced MACH required is:

A 0.80
B 0.72
C 0.78
D 0.76

Explanation: From 15:00 to 13:38 = 1hr 22min = 82min (82/60=) 1.367hr


1. Groundspeed?
GS=Dist/Time = 570/1.367 = 417kt
2. TAS?
GS 417 and HWC 52kt = TAS 469kt
Now on the CRP-5 put -48 under mach number index (in Airspeed window),
put TAS (outer scale) and find the reduced mach nr. (inner scale) = 0.80

Question 2:
On a given path, it is possible to chose between four flight levels (FL),
each associated with a mandatory flight Mach Number (M). The flight
conditions, static air temperature (SAT) and headwind component (HWC) are
given as :FL 370 - M = 0.80 Ts = -60°C HWC = -15 kt. FL 330 - M = 0.78 Ts
= -60°C HWC= - 5 kt. FL 290 - M = 0.80 Ts = -55°C HWC = -15 kt. FL 270 -
M = 0.76 Ts = -43°C HWC = 0. The flight level allowing the highest ground
speed is:

A FL270
B FL330
C FL370
D FL290

Explanation: FL 370 - M = 0.80 Ts = -60°C HWC = -15 kt.


Step 1 is to convert 0.80M to TAS … Wiz wheel I‟m afraid … back of the
thing - align temperature with Mach index ...
So, TAS = 455kts … 15 kt HW … 440kts G/S … and so on!!

Question 3:
A public transport aeroplane with reciprocating engines, the final
reserve should be:

A fuel to fly for 45 minutes


B fuel to fly for 1 hour at holding speed
C fuel to fly for 30 minutes at holding speed
D fuel to fly for 2 hours

Explanation: NO

Question 4:
In a flight plan when the destination aerodrome is A and the alternate
aerodrome is B, the final reserve fuel for a turbojet engine aeroplane
corresponds to:

A 30 minutes holding 1,500 feet above aerodrome B


B 30 minutes holding 1,500 feet above aerodrome A
C 15 minutes holding 2,000 feet above aerodrome A
D 30 minutes holding 2,000 feet above aerodrome B

Explanation: NO

Question 5:
The Trip Fuel for a jet aeroplane to fly from the departure aerodrome to
the destination aerodrome is 5 350 kg. Fuel consumption in holding mode
is 6 000 kg/h. The quantity of fuel which is needed to carry out one go-
around and land on the alternate airfield is 4 380 kg. The destination
aerodrome has a single runway. What is the minimum quantity of fuel which
should be on board at take-off?

A 13 230 kg
B 14 730 kg
C 11 730 kg
D 13 000 kg

Explanation: Fuel required:


- 5350 kg trip fuel
- 4380 kg go-around and landing at alternate fuel
- 3000 kg final reserve fuel (remember turbojet aircraft at an alternate
must final reserve fuel to hold for 30 minutes at 1500 ft)
- Contingency … the greater of (5% of trip) and (5 mins holding at 1500
ft)
(5% x 5350) = 267 kg, (5 mins holding = (6000 x 5/60) = 500 kg
Fuel required = TRIP + CONTINGENCY + ALTERNATE + FINAL RESERVE
This gives: 5350 + 500 + 4380 + 3000 = 13 230 kg

Question 6:
For turbojet engine driven aeroplane, given:Taxi fuel - 600kg Fuel flow
for cruise - 10 000 kg/h Fuel flow for holding - 8 000 kg/h Alternate
fuel - 10 200 kg Planned flight time to destination - 6 h Forecast
visibility at destination - 2000 m The minimum ramp fuel required is:

A 77 800 kg
B 79 200 kg
C 80 500 kg
D 76 100 kg

Explanation: Trip fuel is 6hrs @10000kg/hr = 60,000


contingency is 5% of that = 3,000
Taxi = 600
Alternate Fuel = 10,200
Holding Fuel (30 min) = 4,000
Total = 77,800
Remember they asked for Ramp fuel. Should they ask for takeoff fuel
remember to deduct the taxi fuel.

Question 7:
If a pilot lands at an aerodrome other than the destination aerodrome
specified in the flight plan, he must ensure that the ATS unit at the
destination aerodrome is informed within a certain number of minutes of
his planned ETA at destination. This number of minutes is:

A 30
B 10
C 15
D 45

Explanation: NO

Question 8:
A repetitive flight plan (RPL) is filed for a scheduled flight: Paris-
Orly to Angouleme, Paris Orly as alternate. Following heavy snow falls,
Angouleme airport will be closed at the expected time of arrival. The
airline decides before departure to plan a re-routing of that flight to
Limoges.

A The RPL must be cancelled for that day and a specific flight plan has
to be filed.
B The airline's "Operations " Department has to transmit a change in the
RPL at the ATC office, at least half an hour before the planned time of
departure.
C The pilot-in-command must advise ATC of his intention to divert to
Limoges at least 15 minutes before the planned time of arrival.
D It is not possible to plan another destination and the flight has to be
simply cancelled that day (scheduled flight and not chartered).

Explanation: NO

Question 9:
From the options given below select those flights which require flight
plan notification: I - Any Public Transport flight. 2 - Any IFR flight 3
- Any flight which is to be carried out in regions which are designated
to ease the provision of the Alerting Service or the operations of Search
and Rescue. 4 - Any cross-border flights 5 - Any flight which involves
overflying water

A 2,4
B 1,2,3
C 3,4,5
D 1,5

Explanation: .....an 'OPERATIONAL FLIGHT PLAN' is always required....an


ATS FLIGHT PLAN is required if you are expecting to use ATC services and
if you are going to cross international borders....otherwise the operator
must establish procedures to allow alerting of rescue services etc as
necessary.....so 2 & 4 are correct.

Question 10:
An aeroplane is flying at TAS 180 kt on a track of 090°. The W/V is 045°
/ 50kt. How far can the aeroplane fly out from its base and return in one
hour?

A 85 NM
B 176 NM
C 56 NM
D 88 NM

Explanation: To find H and O use CRP5 or similar:


Centre dot on TAS, 180 kts, rotate to wind direction, 045°; come down
from centre dot for wind speed, 50 kts; mark end of wind vector at 130
kts.
Rotate to outbound track under heading index; note drift 14°Stbd; rotate
track to drift; note drift now 11°Stbd; rotate track to drift; note drift
still 11°Stbd. Required heading outbound will be 079° to track 090°;
groundspeed out, O = 141 kts
Rotate to homebound track under heading index; note drift 9°Port; rotate
track to drift; note drift now 11°Port; rotate track to drift; note drift
still 11°Port. Required heading homebound will be 281° to track 270°;
groundspeed home, H = 212 kts
Time to fly out = (1 x 212)/(141 + 212) = 0.6 hr at outbound groundspeed
= 85 nm

Question 11:
On an ATC flight plan you are required to indicate in the box marked
"speed" the planned speed for the first part of the cruise or for the
entire cruise. This speed is:

A The true airspeed


B The equivalent airspeed
C The estimated ground speed
D The indicated airspeed

Explanation: NO

Question 12:
For a distance of 1860 NM between Q and R, a ground speed "out" of 385
kt, a ground speed "back" of 465 kt and an endurance of 8 HR (excluding
reserves) the distance from Q to the point of safe return (PSR) is:

A 1685 NM
B 1865 NM
C 930 NM
D 1532 NM
Explanation: Time to PSR = E x H Where E = 8 hrs, H = 465 kts, O = 385
kts
(O + H)

= 8 x 465 = 4.38 hrs at 385 kts = 1,685 nm


(385 + 465)

Question 13:
Two points A and B are 1000 NM apart. TAS = 490 kt. On the flight between
A and B the equivalent headwind is -20 kt. On the return leg between B
and A, the equivalent tailwind is +40 kt. What distance from A, along the
route A to B, is the the Point of Equal Time (PET)?

A 530 NM
B 470 NM
C 500 NM
D 455 NM

Explanation: Outbound: TAS = 490kts, wind component -20kts, groundspeed =


470kts
Home: TAS = 490kts, wind component +40kts, groundspeed = 530kts
Distance to PET = (D x H)/(O +H) = 1000 x 530/1000 = 530nm

Question 14:
Given: AD = Air distance, GD = Ground distance, TAS = True Airspeed GS =
Groundspeed. Which of the following is the correct formula to calculate
ground distance (GD) gone?

A GD = (AD X GS)/TAS
B GD = AD X (GS -TAS)/GS
C GD = TAS/(GS X AD)
D GD = (AD - TAS)/TAS

Explanation: Distance = Speed x Time and Time = Distance/Speed. Time =


AD/TAS
Therefore GD = GS x (AD/TAS) = (AD x GS)/TAS.

Question 15:
During a flight at night a position has to be reported to ATC. The
aeroplane is at a distance of 750 NM from the ground station and at
flight level 350. The frequency to be used is:

A 5649 kHz.
B 11336 kHz.
C 123.9 MHz.
D 17286 kHz.

Explanation: The line of sight range from FL350 is about 235NM so you're
not going to be able to use VHF. This suggests you use HF. The 'at night'
bit is trying to suggest you should use lower HF frequency rather than a
higher one.
Typical night time frequencies over the North Atlantic are around 3MHz,
that's to say 3000KHz, and daytime frequencies are in the 9MHz to 11MHz
range.
The best answer seems to be 5649Khz or 5.649MHz, if only because it‟s the
lowest one given.

Question 16:
An aeroplane has the following masses: ESTLWT= 50 000 kg, Trip fuel= 4
300 kg, Contingency fuel= 215 kg, Alternate fuel (final reserve
included)= 2 100kg, Taxi= 500 kg, Block fuel= 7 115 kg. Before departure
the captain orders to make the block fuel 9 000 kg. The trip fuel in the
operational flight plan should read:

A 4 300 kg.
B 6 400 kg.
C 9 000 kg.
D 6 185 kg.

Explanation: Fuel loaded would be a minimum of: TAXY + TRIP + CONTINGENCY


+ ALTERNATE + FINAL RESERVE TRIP FUEL is 'departure aerodrome' to
'destination aerodrome', runway to runway.

Question 17:
According to the chart the minimum obstruction clearance altitude (MOCA)
is 8500 ft. The meteorological data gives an outside air temperature of -
20°C at FL 85. The QNH, given by a met. station at an elevation of
4000ft, is 1003 hPa. What is the minimum pressure altitude which should
be flown according to the given MOCA?

A 8800 ft.
B 12800 ft.
C 8200 ft.
D 8500 ft.

Explanation: There are a couple of these in the Exam system …. this one
only requires a temperature correction …. MOCA 8500ft is QNH …
Temperature correction …. 4% per 10º deviation from ISA ISA at FL85 = -2º
C, so temperature condition is „ISA-18 ºC‟ Correction 7.2% from 8500ft to
DATUM (4000ft). Datum in this instance is our met station at 4000ft 7.2%
x 4500 = 324ft Is it plus or minus 324ft … high to low careful go … temp
is low …. +324ft Answer 8824ft. So - actual answer we will take 8800ft
..... the closest .... which you could argue is a little inconsistent,
but never mind!!!

Question 18:
During an IFR flight in a Beech Bonanza the fuel indicators show that the
remaining amount of fuel is 100 lbs after 38 minutes. Fuel at take off is
160lbs. For the alternate fuel, 30 lbs is necessary. The planned fuel for
taxi is 13 lbs. Final reserve fuel is estimated at 50 lbs. If the fuel
flow remains the same, how many minutes can be flown to the destination
with the remaining fuel?

A 12 minutes.
B 63 minutes.
C 4 minutes.
D 44 minutes.

Explanation: After 38mins you have used 60lbs of fuel … fuel flow = 60/38
= 1.579 lb/min
When you arrive at your destination, you must have ALTERNATE and FINAL
RESERVE fuel (80 lbs) … so, with 100lbs in your tank you have 20lb
„available‟ Time = 20/1.579 = 12 mins

Question 19:
During an IFR flight TAS and time appear to deviate from the data in the
ATC flight plan. The minimum deviations, that should be reported to ATC
in order to conform to PANS-RAC, are:

A TAS 5% and time 3 minutes.


B TAS 10 kt and time 2 minutes.
C TAS 3% and time 3 minutes.
D TAS 5 kt and time 5 minutes.

Explanation: JEPP Manual Air Traffic Control Section page 438, ITEM 15
(3) Change of Speed or Level gives a clue – 5% TAS….3 minutes is also a
requirement.

Question 20:
A "current flight plan" is a:

A filed flight plan with amendments and clearance included.


B filed flight plan.
C flight plan in the course of which radio communication should be
practised between aeroplane and ATC.
D flight plan with the correct time of departure.

Explanation: PANS RAC 4444 states: The current flight plan is “The Flight
Plan, including any changes, if any, brought about by subsequent
clearances.”

Question 21:
Which of the following statements regarding filing a ATC flight plan is
correct?

A In case of ATFM (Air Traffic Flow Management) the flight plan should be
filed at least three hours in advance of the EOBT.
B Any flight plan should be filed at least 10 minutes before departure.
C A flying college can file repetitive flight plan for VFR flights.
D A flight plan should be filed when a national FIR boundary will be
crossed.
Explanation: NO

Question 22:
An aeroplane is on an IFR flight. The flight is to be changed from IFR to
VFR. Is it possible?

A Yes, the pilot in command must inform ATC using the phrase "cancelling
my IFR flight".
B No, you have to remain IFR in accordance to the filed flight plan.
C Yes, but only with permission from ATC.
D No, only ATC can order you to do this.

Explanation: NO

Question 23:
You have a flight plan IFR from Amsterdam to London. In the flight plan
it is noted that you will deviate from the ATS route passing the FIR
boundary Amsterdam/London. The airway clearance reads: Cleared to London
via flight planned route. Which of the following statements is correct?

A The route according to the flight plan is accepted.


B It is not allowed to file such a flight plan.
C The filed deviation is not accepted.
D You will get a separate clearance for the deviation.

Explanation: NO

Question 24:
Mark the correct statement: If a decision point procedure is applied for
flight planning,

A the trip fuel to the destination aerodrome is to be calculated via the


decision point.
B the fuel calculation is based on a contingency fuel from departure
aerodrome to the decision point.
C the trip fuel to the destination aerodrome is to be calculated via the
suitable enroute alternate.
D a destination alternate is not required.

Explanation: NO

Question 25:
An operator shall ensure that calculation of usable fuel for an IFR-
flight with a turbojet aeroplane for which no destination alternate is
required includes, taxi fuel, trip fuel, contingency fuel and fuel to fly
for:

A 45 minutes at holding speed at 450 m above aerodrome elevation in


standard conditions
B 45 minutes at holding speed at 450 m above MSL in standard conditions
C 45 minutes plus 15% of the flight time planned to be spent at cruising
level or two hours whichever is less
D 2 hours at normal cruise consumption

Explanation: Because you are going without an alternate ... you must take
some ADDITIONAL FUEL ... which is 15 min holding at 1500 ft ...
In other words ... fuel loaded must be:
TAXY + TRIP + CONT + FINAL RESERVE + ADDITIONAL FUEL
Final reserve for a jet ... 30 min holding at 1500 ft
Additional fuel ............. 15 min holding at 1500 ft ...

Question 26:
VFR flights shall not be flown over the congested areas of cities at a
height less than

A 1000 ft above the highest obstacle within a radius of 600 m from the
aircraft.
B the highest obstacle.
C 2000 ft above the highest obstacle within a radius of 600 ft from the
aircraft.
D 500 ft above the highest obstacle.

Explanation: 1000ft – an ICAO regulation, see Air Law

Question 27:
How many feet you have to climb to reach FL 75? Given: FL 75; departure
aerodrome elevation 1500 ft; QNH = 1023 hPa; temperature = ISA; 1 hPa =
30 ft

A 6300 ft.
B 6000 ft.
C 7800 ft.
D 6600 ft.

Explanation: First, needs a diagram.

1) Blue line at bottom representing 1023hPa pressure level.


2) Hill on top the dotted line, a little mark on top of hill representing
airfield.
3) Red line part way up the hill representing 1013hPa pressure level.
4) Red Line somewhere well above the hill representing 7500 feet.
Ok, now for the calculations - distance between bottom of hill (1023
level) and top is 1500ft (draw an arrow representing this).
Distance (height) between 1013 pressure level and FL75 is 7500ft.
Height difference between 1023 and 1013 pressure levels is 300feet.
Therefore, you can infer that top of hill is 1200ft above 1013 level.
Final step - height of FL75 above top of hill should be fairly clear from
the diagram - 6300feet.
As temperatures are ISA no correction is needed, so that should be the
answer.
Question 28:
The required time for final reserve fuel for turbojet aeroplane is:

A 30 min.
B 45 min.
C Variable with wind velocity.
D 60 min.

Explanation: NO

Question 29:
Given: Dry Operating Mass = 33000 kg Traffic Load= 8110 kg Final Reserve
Fuel= 983 kg Alternate Fuel= 1100 kg Contingency Fuel 102 kg The
estimated landing mass at alternate should be:

A 42195 kg.
B 41110 kg.
C 42210 kg.
D 42312 kg.

Explanation: Your estimated landing mass at your alternate will be:


DOM + TL + FUEL (fuel will be CONTINGENCY + FINAL RESERVE)
33 000 + 8 110 + (102 + 983) = 42 195 kgs

Question 30:
Given: Dry Operating Mass = 33510 kg Traffic Load= 7600 kg Final Reserve
Fuel= 983 kg Alternate Fuel= 1100 kg Contingency Fuel 102 kg The
estimated landing mass at alternate should be:

A 42195 kg.
B 42210 kg.
C 42312 kg.
D 42093 kg.

Explanation: The question asks the landing mass at the alternate.


It gives all the elements of the fuel load.
The answer marked as correct assumes you arrive at your alternate with
both reserve fuel and contingency on board but we think this is wrong.
We would assume you had used any 'spare' fuel such as unburnt contingency
shooting approaches before you made the decision to divert and you would
therefore arrive with only reserve fuel on board.
There is no answer that matches this reasoning, but the closest answer is
the one marked as correct.

Question 31:
Given: Dry Operating Mass = 33510 kg Traffic Load= 7600 kg Trip Fuel =
2040 kg Final Reserve Fuel= 983 kg Alternate Fuel= 1100 kg Contingency
Fuel= 5% of Trip Fuel Which of the listed estimated masses is correct?

A Estimated landing mass at destination= 43295 kg.


B Estimated landing mass at destination= 43193 kg.
C Estimated take-off mass= 43295 kg.
D Estimated take-off mass= 45233 kg.

Explanation: Dry Operating Mass = 33510 kg


+
Traffic Load= 7600 kg
+
Final Reserve Fuel= 983 kg
+
Alternate Fuel= 1100 kg
+
Contingency Fuel= 102kg
= 43295kg's

Question 32:
The quantity of fuel which is calculated to be necessary for a jet
aeroplane to fly IFR from departure aerodrome to the destination
aerodrome is 5352 kg. Fuel consumption in holding mode is 6 000 kg/h.
Alternate fuel is 4380 kg. Contingency should be 5% of trip fuel. What is
the minimum required quantity of fuel which should be on board at take-
off?

A 13000 kg.
B 14500 kg.
C 13220 kg.
D 13370 kg.

Explanation: T/O FUEL = TRIP + CONTINGENCY + ALTERNATE + FINAL RESERVE


CONTINGENCY = 5% of TRIP = (5/100) x 5352 = 268 kg
FINAL RESERVE (JET) = 30 mins holding at 1500ft above the airfield = 3000
kg
T/O FUEL = 5352 + 268 + 4380 + 3000 = 13000 kg

Question 33:
The following fuel consumption figures are given for a jet aeroplane: -
standard taxi fuel: 600 kg. -average cruise consumption: 10 000 kg/h. -
holding fuel consumption at 1500 ft above alternate airfield elevation:
8000 kg/h. -flight time from departure to destination: 6 hours -fuel for
diversion to alternate: 10 200 kg. The minimum ramp fuel load is:

A 77 800 kg
B 77 200 kg
C 79 800 kg
D 74 800 kg

Explanation: Ramp fuel will be:


Taxy + Trip + Contingency + Alternate + Final Reserve
Calculate contingency as 5% of Trip unless told otherwise,
Calculate final reserve (for a jet) as 30 mins holding at 1500ft above
destination alternate.
This gives: Holding fuel should be sufficient for 30 minutes, therefore
take half the figure provided in the question (4000kg).
Contingency fuel should amount to 5% of the cruise fuel required (i.e. 5%
of 60000kg = 3000kg)
Thus, adding everything together you have:
600 + (6*10000) + 4000 + 10200 + 3000 = 77800kg

Question 34:
A jet aeroplane has a cruising fuel consumption of 4060 kg/h, and 3690
kg/h during holding. If the destination is an isolated airfield, the
aeroplane must carry, in addition to contingency reserves, additional
fuel of:

A 8120 kg.
B 7380 kg.
C 3500 kg.
D 1845 kg.

Explanation: For isolated airfields, you need 2 hours worth of fuel at


cruising consumption, hence: 2 x 4060 = 8120kg

Question 35:
A jet aeroplane is to fly from A to B. The minimum final reserve fuel
must allow for:

A 30 minutes hold at 1500 ft above destination aerodrome elevation, when


no alternate is required.
B 30 minutes hold at 1500 ft above mean sea level.
C 15 minutes hold at 1500 ft above destination aerodrome elevation.
D 20 minutes hold over alternate airfield.

Explanation: The question simply asks about a JET final reserve fuel
requirement .... 30 mins holding at 1500ft above the airfield ..... and
if you are holding an alternate ... 1500ft above the alternate airfield.

Question 36:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MEP1 Figure 3.1. A flight is
to be made from one airport (elevation 3000 ft) to another in a multi
engine piston aireroplane (MEP1). The cruising level will be FL 110. The
temperature at FL 110 is ISA - 10° C. The temperature at the departure
aerodrome is -1° C. Calculate the fuel to climb with mixture rich.
333301.gif

A 6 US gallon
B 12 US gallon
C 3 US gallon
D 9 US gallon

Explanation: CAP 697 FIG 3.1


Enter chart the first time at TOC OAT (FL110, ISA=-7ºC, so ISA -10ºC = -
17ºC),
Then enter a second time to correct for Airfield elevation (OAT -1ºC)
Base scale left side -17ºC, vertically up to 11000ft, across to the fuel
line, read the scale = 9.5 US gall
Base scale left side -1ºC, vertically up to 3000ft, across to the fuel
line, read the scale = 3 US gall
Fuel for climb Airfield (3000ft) to 11000ft = (9.5 - 3) = 6.5 US gall

Question 37:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MEP1 Figure 3.6. A flight is
to be made to an airport, pressure altitude 3000 ft, in a multi engine
piston aireroplane (MEP1). The forecast OAT for the airport is -1° C. The
cruising level will be FL 110, where OAT is -10° C. Calculate the still
air descent distance for: 145 KIAS, Rate of descent 1000 ft/min. Gears
and flaps up
333302.gif

A 20 NM
B 29 NM
C 25 NM
D 36 NM

Explanation: NO

Question 38:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.1) Given:
long range cruise: temp. -63° C at FL 330, initial gross mass enroute 54
100 kg; leg flight time 29 min.Find: fuel consumption for this leg
333305.gif

A 1 100 kg
B 1 020 kg
C 1 680 kg
D 1 200 kg

Explanation: 1. TAS= 433-12=421kts (corrected for ISA-12º)


2. NAM = TAS x time = 421 x (29/60) = 203 NAM
3. From the table,
Start mass = 54100kg corresponds to 3929 NAM .... (3929 - 203) = 3726NAM
3726 NAM corresponds to mass 53000kg (end mass)
Fuel = (Start mass - end mass) = 1100kg
ISA -12º, so -0.7% x 1100 = -8kg, Fuel required 1092kg.
Answer 1100kg

Question 39:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.1. Given:
flight time from top of climb to the enroute point in FL280 is 48 min.
Cruise procedure is long range cruise (LRC).Temp. ISA -5° C. Take-off
mass 56 000 kg. Climb fuel 1 100 kg. Find: distance in nautical air miles
(NAM) for this leg and fuel consumption:
339572.gif
A 345 NAM; 2000 kg
B 437 NAM; 2100 kg
C 345 NAM; 2100 kg
D 350 NAM; 2000 kg

Explanation: This is a 3-step question


step1. 56000-1100 54900kg = TAS 437kt -5degrees =TAS 432kt
step2. No distance given so NAM = TAS*TIME:60 = 346NAM
step3. From the table
Startmass -----> Range
54900 -----> 3736 (subtract NAM 346) = 3390
3390 on the table gives around 52900 (interpolate) = Endmass
Startmass-Endmass = 54900-52900= 2000kg
Answer varies, depends how accurate you interpolate!
so: 3390 look this up on the table, then closest you will find is 3395 ,
so now (interpolate) to get around 52900
so: 2030 (or my answer 2000) comes from subtracting Endmass from
Startmass!! You have to apply the ISA -5 , so is -0.3% , but this won't
change the answer to much!!!

Question 40:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given:
estimated take-off mass 57 500 kg; initial cruise FL 280; average
temperature during climb ISA -10°C; average head wind component 18 kt.
Find: climb time
339573.gif

A 13 min
B 15 min
C 14 min
D 11 min

Explanation: MRJT Climb.......straight forward extraction of data from


the table:
ISA -10....CAP697 page 41.
FL280 row.....58000kg column.....13 minutes (no need to interpolate for
57500kg....makes no difference)
The distance you get from the table is NAM. If you want to find the
ground distance you apply the formula given on the previous page ...
NGM = NAM x (GS/TAS) (simply plug in the TABULATED figures)
What you can't do is apply the 'distance = speed x time' formula to the
tabulated data ... this is because this data includes actual take-off ...
that initial acceleration down the runway, and this distorts the data.
Page numbers - the exam system is now working with CAP697 Second Edition
- if you signed up recently, this is the version you will have - however,
quite a few are working with the original version (seems to be about 50-
50 at the moment on the brush up course). Page numbers reflect the
original ..... just use the TABLE or FIG references .... this is what you
will get in the exam anyway!

Question 41:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given :
brake release mass 57 500 kg, temperature ISA -10°C; head wind component
16 kt initial FL 280. Find: still air distance (NAM) and ground distance
(NM) for the climb
339573.gif

A 62 NAM, 59 NM
B 71 NAM, 67 NM
C 67 NAM, 71 NM
D 59 NAM, 62 NM

Explanation: MRJT Climb tables ... CAP 697 FIG 4.5.1 (ISA -10⁰C) page 19
FL 280 ... 57500 kg ... interpolate between TOM
56000 kg ... 59 NAM
58000 kg ... 63 NAM
57500 kg ... 62 NAM
Ground distance ... use tabulated data and formula (CAP697 page 18, para
5.2d)
NGM = NAM x ( GS / TAS) = 62 x ( 338 / 354 ) = 59 NGM

Question 42:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given :
mass at brake release 57 500 kg; temperature ISA -10°C; average head wind
component 16 kt. initial cruise FL 280. Find: climb fuel
339573.gif

A 1138 kg
B 1387 kg
C 1040 kg
D 1238 kg

Explanation: NO

Question 43:
Given: true course (TC) 017; W/V 340/30; TAS 420 kt Find: wind correction
angle (WCA) and ground speed (GS)

A WCA -2° ; GS 396 kt


B WCA +2° ; GS 396 kt
C WCA +2° ; GS 416 kt
D WCA -2° ; GS 426 kt

Explanation: NO

Question 44:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.1. Given
:FL 330; long range cruise; OAT -63°C; gross mass 50 500 kg. Find: true
airspeed (TAS)
333305.gif

A 420 kt
B 418 kt
C 431 kt
D 433 kt

Explanation: From the CAP .... TAS at 50 500kg is 433kts ..... ISA at
FL330 is -50.5, hence at OAT -63°C, temperature condition is 'ISA -
12.5°C', applying the correction (1kt per °C) TAS is 420.5kts.

Question 45:
Route Manual chart E(HI)4 CAA-Edition. An aeroplane has to fly from
Abbeville (50°08.1'N 001°51.3'E) to Biggin (51°19.8'N 00°00.2'E). At
Biggin you can find : 141°. This is :

A The magnetic course from Biggin to Abbeville.


B The radial, referenced to true north, of Biggin to fly inbound.
C The magnetic course to fly inbound to Biggin.
D The average true course of the great circle from Biggin to Abbeville.

Explanation: This is a Chart number issue - there are two E(HI)4 charts
in your manual - and you must be careful about which one you use. The
question refers you to the E(HI)4 CAA Edition - this is the E(HI) 4/5 -
if you look at the front cover of this one you will see 'CAA FOR CPL/ATPL
EXAMINATIONS'.
The two E(HI)4 charts .... the 3/4 version and the CAA Edition (4/5)
version are quite different in places - even the nav aids are different
in some places. SO, make sure you select the correct chart - so far as I
know, all the E(HI)4 chart questions refer to the CAA Edition version.

Question 46:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.1. Given:
long range cruise; outside air temperature (OAT) -45 ° C in FL 350; mass
at the beginning of the leg 40 000 kg; mass at the end of the leg 39 000
kg. Find: true airspeed (TAS) at the end of the leg and the distance
(NAM).

A TAS 431 kt; 227 NAM


B TAS 423 kt; 936 NAM
C TAS 423 kt; 227 NAM
D TAS 431 kt; 1163 NAM

Explanation: NO

Question 47:
Given: Maximum allowable take-off mass 64 400 kg; maximum landing mass
56200 kg; maximum zero fuel mass 53 000 kg; dry operating mass 35 500 kg;
estimated load 14 500 kg; estimated trip fuel 4 900 kg; minimum take-off
fuel 7 400 kg. Find: maximum additional load

A 3 000 kg
B 4 000 kg
C 7 000 kg
D 5 600 kg

Explanation: Maximum allowable take-off mass 64 400 kg; maximum landing


mass 56200 kg; maximum zero fuel mass 53 000 kg; dry operating mass 35
500 kg; estimated load 14 500 kg; estimated trip fuel 4 900 kg; minimum
take-off fuel 7 400 kg. Find: maximum additional load
This is a mass and balance question … there are 3 mass limits you must
consider – MTOM, MZFM, MLM – and each time you go flying, one of these
will be „critical‟ in terms of maximum traffic load. So work out the
maximum traffic load for each of these limits:
We know that at any time AIRCRAFT MASS = DOM + TL + FUEL …. We use this
At T/O … Max TL = MTOM – DOM – FUEL = 64 400 – 35 500 – 7 400 = 21 500 kg
ZFM … Max TL = MZFM – DOM = 53 000 – 35 500 = 17 500 kg
On landing … Max TL = MLM – DOM – FUEL = 56 200 – 35 500 – 2500 = 18 200
kg
SO, the actual LIMIT comes from the ZFM calculation …. 17 500 kg … 3000kg
more than our estimated TL (14 500kg)

Question 48:
See Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figures 4.1, 4.2 and 4.5.3.2. Given:
estimated take-off mass 57 000 kg; still air distance 150 NAM; outside
air temperature (OAT) ISA -10C; cruise at 0.74 Mach. Find : cruise
altitude and expected true airspeed
60-0234.gif

A 25 000 ft; 435 kt


B 25 000 ft; 445 kt
C 22 000 ft; 441 kt
D 22 000 ft; 451 kt

Explanation: The question you are looking at is good .... refer to FIG
4.2 ... Short Distance Cruise Altitude - enter at 150nm, up to the 'ISA
+10C and below' curve, across to the REF LINE (make a pencil mark),
follow the adjustment curve to the BRW condition 57000kg, now read the
scale. I get a fraction over 25000ft.
Now FIG 4.5.3.2 .... 25000ft .... CAP 697 S4 P41 ... TAS 445 kts ....
apply TEMP correction NOTE 2 (B) .... ISA-10, -10kts, so TAS 435kts.

Question 49:

D 4 750 kg; 02 : 00
Explanation: NO

Question 50:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.6. Given:
estimated dry operation mass 35 500 kg; estimated load 14 500 kg; final
reserve fuel 1200 kg; distance to alternate 95 NM; average true track
219°; head wind component 10 kt Find : fuel and time to alternate.
333322.gif

A 1 100 kg; 25 min


B 800 kg; 24 min
C 800 kg; 40 min
D 1 100 kg; 44 min

Explanation: The correct time is 24/25 mins, for the fuel used we get
just over 1000kgs so the best answer is 1100kg; 25 mins.
With the time to alternate scale it‟s given as a decimal: 0.4 hr = 24
mins

Question 51:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.3C. Given:
ground distance to destination aerodrome 1 600 NM; headwind component 50
kt; FL 330; cruise 0.78 Mach; ISA + 20 ° C; estimated landing weight
55000 kg . Find: simplified flight planning to determine estimated trip
fuel and trip time.
333323.gif

A 12 400 kg. 03h 55 min


B 12 400 kg. 04h 12 min
C 11 400 kg. 04h 12 min
D 11 400 kg. 03h 55 min

Explanation: NO

Question 52:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MEP 1 Figure 3.2. A flight is
to be made in a multi engine piston aeroplane (MEP1). The cruising level
will be 11000ft. The outside air temperature at FL is -15 ° C. The usable
fuel is 123 US gallons. The power is set to economic cruise. Find the
range in NM with 45 min reserve fuel at 45 % power.
333327.gif

A 752 NM
B 610 NM
C 602 NM
D 852 NM

Explanation: If you look at the MEP range chart there are 2 sets of
curves...range WITH 45min reserve at 45% power and range with no reserve.
For this question you are required to find the range with reserve (left
hand set of curves) at economic cruise...and here's the gotcha...look at
the top right of the graph, they attach names to the % power settings:
75% high speed
65% economy
45% long range
So, you need to enter the chart at 11000ft....across to the 65% power
curve....range 760NAM...now correct for temperature (-8nm) and you get
the answer 752nm.

Question 53:
Unless otherwise shown on charts for standard instrument departure the
routes are given with:

A magnetic course
B true headings
C magnetic headings
D true course

Explanation: NO

Question 54:
A descent is planned from 7500 ft AMSL so as to arrive at 1000 ft AMSL 6
NM from a VORTAC. With a GS of 156 kts and a rate of descent of 800
ft/min. The distance from the VORTAC when descent is started is:

A 27,1 NM
B 30,2 NM
C 11,7 NM
D 15,0 NM

Explanation: Descent is planned from 7500 ft AMSL so as to arrive at 1000


ft AMSL 6 NM from a VORTAC.
With a GS of 156 kts and a rate of descent of 800 ft/min. The distance
from the VORTAC when descent is started is:
You must descend 6500ft (7500ft to 1000ft) at 800ft/min … so in terms of
TIME, it will take: 6500/800 = 8.125 mins
Your G/S is 156kts … distance travelled = 156 x 8.125/60 = 21.1nm
So you must start the descent 21.1 + 6 = 27.1nm from the VORTAC

Question 55:
Flight planning chart for an aeroplane, states that the time to reach FL
190 at a given gross mass is 22 minutes and the distance travelled is 66
NM (no wind). What will be the distance travelled with a average head
wind component of 35 kt?

A 53 NM
B 79 NM
C 85 NM
D 61 NM
Explanation: Another way of doing this .... if you sit in a 35kt wind for
22 minutes you will get 'blown' 13nm .... (35 x 22/60)
It‟s a head wind, so you get blown 13nm 'back'. (66 - 13)= 53nm

Question 56:
You are flying a constant compass heading of 252°. Variation is 22°E,
deviation is 3°W and your INS is showing a drift of 9° right. True track
is ?

A 280°
B 262°
C 242°
D 224°

Explanation: NO

Question 57:
The purpose of the decision point procedure is:

A to reduce the minimum required fuel and therefore be able to increase


the traffic load.
B to increase the amount of extra fuel.
C to reduce the landing weight and thus reduce the structural stress on
the aircraft.
D to increase the safety of the flight.

Explanation: The Decision Point procedure allows a substantial reduction


in contingency fuel, so you can load additional pax/bags/freight.

Question 58:
When using decision point procedure, you reduce the

A contingency fuel by adding contingency only from the burnoff between


decision point and destination.
B contingency fuel by adding contingency only from the burnoff between
the decision airport and destination.
C holding fuel by 30%.
D reserve fuel from 10% down to 5%.

Explanation: NO

Question 59:
If CAS is 190 kts, Altitude 9000 ft. Temp. ISA - 10°C, True Course (TC)
350°, W/V 320/40, distance from departure to destination is 350 NM,
endurance 3 hours, and actual time of departure is 1105 UTC. The Point of
Equal Time (PET) is reached at:

A 1213 UTC
B 1203 UTC
C 1233 UTC
D 1221 UTC

Explanation: PET calculations answer the question 'would it be quicker to


continue or turn around and go back?' This knowledge may be needed in
case of an aeroplane emergency (fire, engine failure etc) or even a
passenger emergency/illness. For PET calculations the formula always used
is:
Distance to PET = (D x H) / (O + H)
The PSR calculation answers the question: 'does the plane have enough
fuel to return home?‟ This will be part of the planning process if you
are flying in to an isolated airfield. For PSR calculations the only
formula you use is:
Time to PSR = (E x H) / (O + H)

Question 60:
If CAS is 190 kts, Altitude 9000 ft. Temp. ISA - 10°C, True Course (TC)
350°, W/V 320/40, distance from departure to destination is 350 NM,
endurance 3 hours and actual time of departure is 1105 UTC. The distance
from departure to Point of Equal Time (PET)

A 203 NM
B 183 NM
C 167 NM
D 147 NM

Explanation: NO

Explanation: NO

Question 63:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.4. Planning a
flight from Paris Charles de Gaulle to London Heathrow for a twin - jet
aeroplane. Preplanning: Dry Operating Mass (DOM): 34 000 kg, Traffic
Load: 13 000 kg. The holding is planned at 1 500 ft above alternate
elevation. The alternate elevation is 256 ft. The holding is planned for
30 minutes with no reductions. Determine the Estimated Landing Mass at
alternate Manchester.
333324.gif

A 48 125 kg.
B 49 250 kg.
C 48 675 kg.
D 2 250 kg.

Explanation: The wording of the question is just HORRENDOUS - almost


certain to confuse!!
If you look at the statement 'The holding is planned at 1 500 ft above
alternate elevation. The alternate elevation is 256 ft. The holding is
planned for 30 minutes with no reductions' this is FINAL RESERVE for a
jet .... you must land with FINAL RESERVE in your tanks.
It would be better if they just got rid of that statement from the
question!! (shame we don‟t write them…)
So, your landing mass at alternate = DOM + TL + Final reserve fuel
Go to FIG 4.4, approx holding mass 48000kg ... fuel flow 2280kg/hr, final
reserve (30mins) 1140kg Landing mass = 34000 + 13000 + 1140 = 48140 kg

Question 64:
Route Manual chart E(HI)4 CAA-Edition and Flight planning manual Figure
4.3.2A. Planning a flight from Paris Charles de Gaulle (N49 00.9 E002
36.9) to London Heathrow. (N51 29.2 W000 27.9) for a twin - jet
aeroplane. Preplanning: Powersetting: Mach= 0.74. Planned flight level FL
280. The Landing Mass in the fuel graph is 50 000 kg. The trip distance
used for calculation is 200 NM. The wind from Paris to London is 280°/40
kt. Find the estimated trip fuel.

A 1 740 kg.
B 1 450 kg.
C 1 550 kg.
D 1 900 kg.

Explanation: Just plot the points and measure the track … hence you can
come up with a wind component.

Question 65:
Given: Maximum Take-off Mass: 62 800 kg Maximum Zero Fuel Mass: 51 250 kg
Maximum Landing Mass: 54 900 kg Maximum Taxi Mass: 63 050 kg Trip fuel: 1
800 kg Alternate fuel: 1 400 kg Holding fuel (final reserve): 1 225 kg
Dry Operating Mass: 34 000 kg Traffic Load: 13 000 kg, Catering: 750 kg,
Baggage: 3 500 kg. Find the Take-off Mass (TOM):

A 51 515 kg.
B 55 765 kg.
C 52 265 kg.
D 51 425 kg.

Explanation: The age old problem with fuel calculations .... contingency.
Unfortunately there does not seem to be any consistency in the exam
questions ... so for this one ...
TOM = DOM + TL + FUEL
Contingency, as you say, the greater of 5% TRIP and 5 mins holding at
1500ft.
You are given FINAL RESERVE - but they do not tell you what kind of
aeroplane it is ... assuming it is a turbine engined aeroplane, 1225 kg
is 30 mins holding, so 5 mins holding would be 205 kg.
5% TRIP = 90 kg.
SO, there is uncertainty - do the calculation with both CONTINGENCY fuels
- see what turns up in the answers ...
5% cont ....... TOM = 34000 + 13000 + 1800 + 90 + 1400 + 1225 = 51515 kg
5 mins cont ... TOM = 34000 + 13000 + 1800 + 205 + 1400 + 1225 = 51630 kg
So... 51515 kg

Question 66:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.6. In order
to get alternate fuel and time, the twin -jet aeroplane operations manual
graph shall be entered with:
333322.gif

A Distance (NM), wind component, landing mass at alternate.


B Distance (NM), wind component, Zero Fuel Mass.
C Flight time, wind component, landing mass at alternate.
D Still air distance, wind component, Zero Fuel Mass.

Explanation: NO

Question 67:
The navigation plan reads: Trip fuel: 100 kg Flight time: 1h35min Taxi
fuel: 3 kg Block fuel: 181 kg The endurance on the ICAO flight plan
should read:

A 2h 49min
B 2h 52min
C 2h 04min
D 1h 35min

Explanation: T/O fuel 178kg


Trip fuel 100kg is worth flight time of 1hr 35mins, or 1.583hrs
So 178kgs ..... (178/100) x 1.583 = 2.818hrs .... 2hrs 49mins
Question 68:
The navigation plan reads: Trip fuel: 136 kg Flight time: 2h45min
Calculated reserve fuel: 30% of trip fuel Fuel in tank is minimum (no
extra fuel on board) Taxi fuel: 3 kg The endurance on the ICAO flight
plan should read:

A 3h34min
B 2h45min
C 3h38min
D 2h49min

Explanation: 136kg divided by 165 mins flight time (2 hrs 45 mins) =


0,824 kg/min
30% of 136kg = 40,8kg reserve fuel.
40,8 / 0,824 = 49 mins.
2hrs 45 mins + 49 mins = 3 hrs 34 mins
Taxi fuel must be ignored because it has no influence on endurance. It's
been burned when taking off.
There seem to be several of these types of question around .... reserve
fuel is 30% of trip fuel .... you are given trip time .... so as this is
all the information they give you, simply increase trip time by 30% ...

Question 69:
For a planned flight the calculated fuel is as follows: Flight time:
2h42min The reserve fuel, at any time, should not be less than 30% of the
remaining trip fuel. Taxi fuel: 9 kg Block fuel: 136 kg How much fuel
should remain after 2 hours flight

A 25 kg trip fuel and 8 kg reserve fuel.


B 23 kg trip fuel and 10 kg reserve fuel.
C 33 kg trip fuel and no reserve fuel.
D 33 kg trip fuel and 10 kg reserve fuel.

Explanation: You must take off with TRIP + RESERVE....and at T/O reserve
must equal 30% of trip, so in other words, you actually take off with
130% of trip fuel.
T/O fuel = 127 = 130/100 x TRIP
Therefore TRIP FUEL = 98 kg
After 2 hrs of a 2.7 hr sector, 0.7 hr remains
So the fraction of TRIP FUEL remaining is:
0.7/2.7 x 98 = 25 kg
Reserve needs to be 30% of REMAINING trip fuel
30/100 x 25 = 8 kg

Question 70:
Minimum planned take-off fuel is 160 kg (30% total reserve fuel is
included). Assume the groundspeed on this trip is constant. When the
aircraft has done half the distance the remaining fuel is 70 kg. Is
diversion to a nearby alternate necessary?

A Diversion to a nearby alternate is necessary, because the remaining


fuel is not sufficient.
B Diversion to a nearby alternate is not necessary, because it is allowed
to calculate without reserve fuel.
C Diversion to a nearby alternate is necessary, unless the captain
decides to continue on his own responsibility.
D Diversion to a nearby alternate is not necessary, because the reserve
fuel has not been used completely.

Explanation: They try and catch us out with too much knowledge. Best way
to do this is the proper back of a fag packet no nonsense approach
(you'll like this):
T/O fuel = 160kg
1/2 way, remainder is 70kg. Therefore in half the trip, 90 has been used.
70 is not enough for the remainder.

Question 71:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MEP 1 Figure 3.3. A flight has
to be made with a multi engine piston aeroplane (MEP 1). For the fuel
calculations take 5 US gallons for the taxi, and an additional 13 minutes
at cruise condition to account for climb and descent. Calculated time
from overhead to overhead is 1h47min. Powersetting is 45%, 2600 RPM.
Calculated reserve fuel is 30% of the trip fuel. FL 100. Temperature -
5°C. Find the minimum block fuel.
334622.gif

A 47 US gallons.
B 470 US gallons.
C 37 US gallons.
D 60 US gallons.

Explanation: The question states that 'RESERVE' should be 30% of trip


fuel – and it is assumed in this example that it means all of the
reserve:
'RESERVE' = (CONTINGENCY + ALTERNATE + FINAL RESERVE + ADDITIONAL FUEL)

Question 72:

'RESERVE' = (CONTINGENCY + ALTERNATE + FINAL RESERVE + ADDITIONAL FUEL)

Question 73:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.5. Given: FL
75, Lean mixture, Full throttle, 2300 RPM. Take-off fuel: 444 lbs, Take-
off from MSL. Find: Endurance in hours and minutes.
334735.gif

A 05 hours 12 minutes
B 04 hours 42 minutes
C 05 hours 23 minutes
D 05 hours 20 minutes

Explanation: The question asked for the time in


hours.....5.200hours....which is 5 hrs 12 mins.

Question 74:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.1. Given: FL
75, OAT: +5°C, During climb: average head wind component 20 kt. Take-off
from MSL with the initial mass of 3 650 lbs. Find: Time and fuel to
climb.
339715.gif

A 9 min. 3,3 USG


B 9 min. 2,7 USG
C 10 min. 3,6 USG
D 7 min. 2,6 USG

Explanation: For this question you take-off from an airfield at MSL - the
data they give you is the TOC stuff .... FL75 OAT +5°C .... the
temperature is 'OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE', versus an ISA deviation ....
(ISA +...)
When you use this graph, enter the first time at your TOC OAT ... +5°C in
this instance .... IF you were taking off from an airfield that was NOT
at MSL, you would need to enter a second time to correct for that
elevation .... the second time you enter would be at AIRFIELD OAT,
working up to AIRFIELD ELEVATION .... etc

Question 75:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.1. Given: FL
75, OAT: +5°C, During climb: average head wind component 20 kt. Take-off
from MSL with the initial mass of 3 650 lbs. Find: Still air distance
(NAM) and ground distance (NM) using the graph "time, fuel, distance to
climb".
339715.gif

A 18 NAM. 15 NM.
B 18 NAM.13 NM.
C 14 NAM. 18 NM.
D 16 NAM.18 NM.
Explanation: To do this one you need to extract TIME and DISTANCE from
the graph on page 3 of the SEP section: Given OAT +5, FL75 ...... 9
minutes 18 NAM
Now, there is a 20kt HEADWIND .... if you are in a 20 kt wind for 9
minutes, you get 'blown':
20 x (9/60) = 3 nm ..... its a headwind, so -3nm .... 18 - 3 = 15
NGM Additional assistance…
A NAM (Nautical Air Mile) distance is a Still Air distance (nil wind), a
Nautical Ground Mile (NGM) distance is the distance you cover over the
ground ....
Suppose your climb takes 50 NAM and 1 hour exactly .... in still air
conditions (nil wind) you will travel 50NGM. If the mean wind component
is '20kts HEAD WIND', the 'air' you are climbing in is moving backwards
over the ground at 20kts - in other words, you will travel (50-20)=30NGM.
If your climb takes 50 NAM and 30 minutes .... if the mean wind component
is '20kts HEAD WIND', the 'air' you are climbing in is moving backwards
over the ground at 20kts - you are in this 20 kt wind for ½ hour .... you
will get blown 10nms - in other words, you will travel (50-10)=40NGM.

Question 76:
"Integrated range" curves or tables are presented in the Aeroplane
Operations Manuals. Their purpose is

A to determine the fuel consumption for a certain still air distance


considering the decreasing fuel flow with decreasing mass.
B to determine the optimum speed considering the fuel cost as well as the
time related cost of the aeroplane.
C to determine the flight time for a certain leg under consideration of
temperature deviations.
D to determine the still air distance for a wind components varying with
altitude.

Explanation: Integrated Range tables (CAP 697 pages 46…..) allow fuel
consumption for a given nautical air mile distance; the tables consider
decreasing aeroplane mass.

Question 77:
Knowing that: Mass at brake release: 210 000 kg Selected cruise speed:
0.82 Mach Air distance: 3 000 NM Cruise level: optimum Air conditioning:
standard Anti-icing: OFF Temperature: ISA CG: 37% Assuming zero wind, the
planned flight time from take-off to landing needed to complete this
flight will be:
33056.gif

A 400 minutes
B 394 minutes
C 389 minutes
D 383 minutes

Explanation: NAM = 3000 NAM


From table 210 000 kg → 8019 NAM 1023 mins
(8019 – 3000) = 5019 NAM → 640 mins
Sector time 1023 – 640 = 383 mins
Icing/Pack flow/ISA - no correction
Climb correction +6 mins
Descent correction +11 mins
Sector time = 383 + 6 + 11 = 400 mins

Question 78:
Knowing that: . Mass at brake release: 190 000 kg . Selected cruise
speed: 0.82 Mach . Flight leg distance: 1 500 NM . Cruise level: optimum
. Air conditioning: standard . Anti-icing: OFF . Temperature: ISA . CG:
37% Assuming zero wind, the planned flight time from take-off to landing
needed to complete this flight will be:
33057.gif

A 209 minutes
B 198 minutes
C 192 minutes
D 203 minutes

Explanation: NAM = 1500 NAM


From table 190 000 kg →6417 NAM 819 mins
(6417 – 1500) = 4917 NAM → 627 mins
Sector time 819 – 627 = 192 mins
Icing/Pack flow/ISA - no correction
Climb correction +6 mins
Descent correction +11 mins
Sector time = 192 + 6 + 11 = 209 mins

Question 79:
Knowing that: . Mass at brake release: 210 000 kg . Selected cruise
speed: 0.82 Mach . Flight leg distance: 3 000 NM . Cruise level: optimum
. Air conditioning: standard . Anti-icing: OFF . Temperature: ISA . CG:
37 Assuming zero wind, the planned landing mass at destination will be:
33056.gif

A 171 300 kg
B 176 100 kg
C 170 400 kg
D 172 300 kg

Explanation: NAM = 3000 NAM


From table 210 000 kg → 8019 NAM
(8019 – 3000) = 5019 NAM → 174 200 kg
Icing/Pack flow/ISA - no correction
Climb correction (-2900 kg)
Descent correction (-100kg)
Landing mass (174 200 – 2900 – 100) = 171 200 kg
The closest of the available answers is 171 300 kg

Question 80:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.2 Table 2.2.3.
Using the Power Setting Table, for the single engine aeroplane, determine
the manifold pressure and fuel flow (lbs/hr) with full throttle and
cruise lean mixture in the following conditions: Given: OAT: 13°C
Pressure altitude: 8000 ft RPM: 2300
326584.gif

A 22.4 in.Hg and 69.3 lbs/hr


B 22.4 in.Hg and 73.8 lbs/hr
C 23.0 in.Hg and 69.0 lbs/hr
D 22.4 in.Hg and 71.1 lbs/hr

Explanation: Refer to CAP 697 Section 2 page 6 ...


Question conditions, 8000ft, OAT + 13º C
8000ft, ISA is -1ºC, so temperature condition is 'ISA +14ºC'
We need to interpolate between ISA and ISA +20ºC
From the table, 8000ft:
ISA ...... Fuel flow 71.1PPH, Man Press 22.4
ISA+20º. Fuel flow 68.5PPH, Man Press 22.4
Interpolating ... (71.1-68.5)x(14/20) = 1.82
So fuel flow = 71.1 - 1.82 = 69.28 PPH
Also, refer to CAP 697 Section 2 page 1 .... fuel density 6 lb per US
gallon (unless otherwise specified)

Question 81:
At reference or see Flight planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.2 Table 2.2.3.
Using the Power Setting Table, for the single engine aeroplane, determine
the cruise TAS and fuel flow (lbs/hr) with full throttle and cruise lean
mixture in the following conditions: Given: OAT: 13°C Pressure altitude:
8000 ft RPM: 2300
326584.gif

A 160 kt and 69,3 lbs/hr


B 159 kt and 71,7 lbs/hr
C 160 kt and 71,1 lbs/hr
D 158 kt and 74,4 lbs/hr

Explanation: CAP 697 Table 2.2.3


OAT is +13ºC, ISA at 8000ft = -1ºC, so Temperature condition is 'ISA
+14ºC'
Therefore, we need to interpolate between 'ISA' and 'ISA +20ºC' on the
Table
TAS .... this is the same, 160 kts
Fuel flow:
8000ft, ISA, fuel flow 71.1 PPH
8000ft, ISA +20ºC, fuel flow 68.5 PPH
Our condition 'ISA +14ºC', so (71.1-68.5) x (6/20) = .78, so fuel flow =
(68.5 + 0.78) = 69.28 PPH

Question 82:
At reference or see Flight planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.3 Table 2.3.1.
Using the Power Setting Table, for the single engine aeroplane, determine
the cruise TAS and fuel flow (lbs/hr) with full throttle and cruise lean
mixture in the following conditions: Given : OAT: 3°C Pressure altitude:
6000 ft Power: Full throttle / 21,0 in/Hg./ 2100 RPM
326586.gif

A 134 kt and 55,7 lbs/hr


B 131 kt and 56,9 lbs/hr
C 125 kt and 55,7 lbs/hr
D 136 kt and 56,9 lbs/hr

Explanation: NO

Question 83:
At reference or see Flight planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.4. Using the
Range Profile Diagram, for the single engine aeroplane, determine the
range, with 45 minutes reserve, in the following conditions: Given :
O.A.T.: ISA 16°C Pressure altitude: 4000 ft Power: Full throttle / 25,0
in/Hg./ 2100 RPM
326587.gif

A 865 NM
B 911 NM
C 739 NM
D 851 NM

Explanation: For this graph, no temperature information/correction is


offered, so ISA +16ºC is a trick.
Don't be put off by this, quite a few questions give you information that
is not required!

Question 84:
An aircraft was over 'A' at 1435 hours flying direct to 'B'. Given:
Distance 'A' to 'B' 2900 NM True airspeed 470 kt Mean wind component
'out' +55 kt Mean wind component 'back' -75 kt. The ETA for reaching the
Point of Equal Time (PET) between 'A' and 'B' is:

A 1657
B 1721
C 1846
D 1744

Explanation: Point of Equal Time (PET) = (Distance x Homeward


Groundspeed) / (Outbound Groundspeed + Homeward Groundspeed)
TAS = 470 KTAS
Outbound Groundspeed = 470 + 55 knots Wind Component = 525 knots
Homeward Groundspeed = 470 - 75 knots Wind Component = 395 knots
PET = (D x H) / (O + H)
PET = (2,900 x 395) / (525 + 395)
PET = 1,145,500 / 920
PET = 1,245 NM (from Departure Point)
Outbound Groundspeed = 525 knots
Therefore, time to PET at 1,245 NM = 1,245 / 525 = 2.37 hours = 2 hours
22 minutes
14:35 + 02:22 = 16:57

Question 85:
An aircraft was over 'A' at 1435 hours flying direct to 'B'. Given:
Distance 'A' to 'B' 2900 NM True airspeed 470 kt Mean wind component
'out' +55 kt Mean wind component 'back' -75 kt Safe endurance 9 HR 30 MIN
The ETA at the point of equal time is:

A 1657
B 1721
C 1744
D 1846

Explanation: Distance to PET = D x H Where: D = Total Distance =


2900 nm
(O + H) O = Groundspeed out =
470 + 55 = 525 kts
H = Groundspeed
home = 470 – 75 = 395 kts
O + H = 920
Distance to PET = 2900 x 395 = 1245 nm @ 525 kts = 2H 22min
920
Time at A = 14:35 hrs
Time to PET = 2:22
ETA at PET = 16:57 hrs

Question 86:
Given: Distance 'A' to 'B' 2484 NM Groundspeed 'out' 420 kt Groundspeed
'back' 500 kt The time from 'A' to the Point of Equal Time (PET) between
'A' and 'B' is:

A 193 MIN
B 173 MIN
C 163 MIN
D 183 MIN

Explanation: Distance to PET = D x H where D = 2,484nm


(O + H) H = 500 kts
O = 420 kts
O + H = 920
Distance to PET = 2,484 x 500 = 1,350 nm at 420 kts = 193 minutes.
920

Question 87:
Given: Distance 'A' to 'B' 1973 NM Groundspeed 'out' 430 kt Groundspeed
'back' 385 kt Safe endurance 7 HR 20 MIN The distance from 'A' to the
Point of Safe Return (PSR) 'A' is:

A 1490 NM
B 1698 NM
C 1422 NM
D 1664 NM

Explanation: Time to PSR = E x H Where E = 7 hours 20 minutes


(7.33hrs)
(O + H) H = 385 kts
O = 430 kts
O + H = 815
Time to PSR = 7.33 x 385 = 3.46 hours at 430 kts = 1,490 nm.
815

Question 88:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.4. The final
reserve fuel taken from the HOLDING PLANNING table for the twin jet
aeroplane is based on the following parameters:
333324.gif

A pressure altitude, aeroplane mass and flaps up with minimum drag


airspeed
B pressure altitude, aeroplane mass and flaps up with maximum range speed
C pressure altitude, aeroplane mass and flaps down with minimum drag
airspeed
D pressure altitude, aeroplane mass and flaps down with maximum range
speed

Explanation: NO

Question 89:
For flight planning purposes the landing mass at alternate is taken as:

A Zero Fuel Mass plus Final Reserve Fuel and Contingency Fuel.
B Zero Fuel Mass plus Final Reserve Fuel.
C Zero Fuel Mass plus Final Reserve Fuel and Alternate Fuel.
D Landing Mass at destination plus Alternate Fuel.

Explanation: Contingency .....


At Take-off your minimum fuel will be the sum of:
TRIP + CONTINGENCY + ALTERNATE + FINAL RESERVE
Contingency is there in case things don't go as planned .... the wind may
be stronger ... you may not get the FL you planned on .... perhaps there
was a change of runway which meant extra track miles ... HOWEVER, if all
goes exactly to plan, you will not use contingency, hence the 'PLANNED'
landing mass at DESTINATION will include (CONTINGENCY + ALTERNATE + FINAL
RESERVE), and 'PLANNED' landing mass at alternate will include
(CONTINGENCY + FINAL RESERVE).
Nautical Air Miles = Still Air Distance .... when there is NO wind, NAM
will be the same as NGM.
For this question we can just use the formula:
NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) .... (a version of this is given in CAP697 Section 4
page 16 para 5.2.d)
Question 90:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.6. In order
to find ALTERNATE FUEL and TIME TO ALTERNATE, the AEROPLANE OPERATING
MANUAL shall be entered with:
333322.gif

A distance in nautical miles (NM), wind component, landing mass at


alternate
B distance in nautical miles (NM), wind component, Dry Operating Mass
plus Holding Fuel
C distance in nautical air miles (NAM), wind component, landing mass at
alternate
D distance in nautical miles (NM), wind component, Zero Fuel Mass

Explanation: NO

Question 91:
The final reserve fuel for aeroplanes with turbine engines is

A fuel to fly for 30 minutes at holding speed at 1500 ft (450 m) above


aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.
B fuel to fly for 45 minutes at holding speed at 1000 ft (300 m) above
aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.
C fuel to fly for 60 minutes at holding speed at 1500 ft (450 m) above
aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.
D fuel to fly for 45 minutes at holding speed at 1500 ft (450 m) above
aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.

Explanation: NO

Question 92:
Which of the following statements is relevant for forming route portions
in integrated range flight planning?

A The distance from take-off up to the top of climb has to be known.


B A small change of temperature (2 °C) can divide a segment.
C Each reporting point requires a new segment.
D No segment shall be more than 30 minutes of flight time.

Explanation: This seems to me to be a very odd question .... but, suppose


you are planning a route A to B to C to D ..... You take of at A and
climb to your cruise altitude ... then you navigate to point B ... C ...
Fuel calculations in the cruise depend on you knowing where your TOC
point is - hence you need to know how far you travel in the climb ....

Explanation: NO

Question 98:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.2. Find
the FUEL FLOW for the twin jet aeroplane with regard to the following
data. Given: MACH .74 cruise, Flight level 310, Gross mass 50000 kg, ISA
conditions
339557.gif

A 2300 kg/h
B 1497 kg/h
C 1150 kg/h
D 2994 kg/h

Explanation: Using the table on p68 of CAP697, enter at 50,000kg, note


the max cruise limit of 2994NAM. TAS is 434kts, so in an hour you would
travel 434NAM - deduct this from 2994 to give you 2560NAM.
Locate this figure in the table (or the nearest to it, if necessary) and
you will notice that the weight associated with the distance is now
47,700kg. Deduct 47700 from 50000kg and you get fuel used to be 2300kg.

Question 99:
Finish the ENDURANCE/FUEL CALCULATION and determine ATC ENDURANCE for a
twin jet aeroplane, with the help of the table provided. Contingency is
5% of the planned trip fuel and fuel flow for extra fuel is 2400 kg/h.

A 406 Nautical Air Miles (NAM)
B 499 Nautical Air Miles (NAM)
C 511 Nautical Air Miles (NAM)
D 414 Nautical Air Miles (NAM)

Explanation: To convert NGM to NAM we use the formula given on page 26 of


the CAP697:
NAM = NGM x TAS/GS = 450 x 460/510 = 406 NAM

Question 101:
Find the distance to the POINT OF SAFE RETURN (PSR). Given: maximum
useable fuel 15000 kg, minimum reserve fuel 3500 kg, Outbound: TAS 425
kt, head wind component 30 kt, fuel flow 2150 kg/h, Return: TAS 430 kt,
tailwind component 20 kt, fuel flow 2150 kg/h

A 1125 NM
B 1491 NM
C 1143 NM
D 1463 NM

Explanation: PSR question … formula … Time to PSR = EH / (O + H)


E = fuel available/fuel flow = 11500/2150 = 5.349 hrs
O= 395 kts
H = 450 kts …

Question 102:

Average fuel flow 2150 kg/h

A 2 h 51 min
B 2 h 43 min
C 2 h 59 min
D 3 h 43 min

Explanation: 15000-3500= 11500Kg


11500/2150=5,348 hrs = 5h 20min ( = 5.34883... hours, or 5.349 hrs to 3
decimal places)
O= 425-30= 395Kt
H= 430+20= 450Kt
Formula: PSR= E H/(O+H)
5,349*450/(395+450) = 2h 50 min ( = 2.84857 ... hours, or 2.849 hrs to 3

min
333305.gif

A 1093 kg
B 1107 kg
C 1100 kg
D 1000 kg

Explanation: STEP 1:
TAS 433 kt ? ?ISA -12°C?, so -12 kt TAS 421 kt
STEP 2:
NAM = TAS x time = 421 x (29 / 60) = 203 NAM
STEP 3: Table:
........... Mass ..... Range
Start....54100 kg → 3929 NAM
..........................- 203 (from Step 2)
End .....53000 kg ←3726 NAM
FUEL ... 1100 kg
ISA - 12°, so - 0.7%, (-0.7/100) x 1100 = -8 kg (NOTE 2B)
1100 - 8 = 1092 kg

Question 108:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.1. Find:
Air distance in Nautical Air Miles (NAM) for this leg and fuel
consumption Given: Flight time from top of climb at FL 280 to the enroute

is ISA -5°C. The take-off mass is 56000 kg and climb fuel 1100 kg.
339572.gif

A 345 NAM; 1994 kg


B 349 NAM; 2000 kg
C 345 NAM; 2000 kg
D 345 NAM; 2006 kg

Explanation: TOM 56000kg.....1100kg used in climb, so mass at TOC


54900kg.
1. TAS = 436 kts....correct for ISA-5...431kts
2. NAM = TAS x time = 431 x (48/60) = 345NAM
3. Start mass = 54900kg....from table = 3736 NAM
3736-345=3391....from table = 52900kg (end mass)
Start mass - end mass = fuel required....54900 - 52900 = 2000kg
Last correction....ISA -5, -0.3%....1994kg.
Answers to this question too close....if it turns up like this we need to
appeal!

Question 109:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given:
Brake release mass 57500 kg, Initial FL 280, average temperature during
climb ISA -10°C, average head wind component 18 kt. Find: Climb time for
enroute climb 280/.74
339573.gif

A 13 min
B 15 min
C 14 min
D 11 min

Explanation: Wind will have no effect on climb Fuel, time, NAM or mean
TAS.
The only thing wind changes will be the GROUND DISTANCE travelled.
NGM = NAM x (GS/TAS)

Question 110:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given:
Brake release mass 57500 kg, Temperature ISA -10°C, Headwind component 16
kt, Initial FL 280. Find: Still air distance (NAM) and ground distance
(NM) for the enroute climb 280/.74

Brake release mass 57500 kg, Temperature ISA -10°C, Average headwind
component 16 kt, Initial FL 280. Find: Climb fuel for enroute climb
280/.74
339573.gif

A 1138 kg
B 1387 kg
C 1040 kg
D 1238 kg

Explanation: NO

Question 112:
Given: True course (TC) 017°, W/V 340°/30 kt, True air speed (TAS) 420 kt
Find: Wind correction angle (WCA) and ground speed (GS)

A WCA -2°, GS 396 kt


B WCA +2°, GS 416 kt
C WCA +2°, GS 396 kt
D WCA -2°, GS 426 kt
Explanation: This is solved on the Nav Computer, WCA is another term for
drift except that, while drift is usually expressed as port and starboard
or left and right, the WCA uses + and -. The mnemonic for conversion is
Port Plus.
On the CRP5 or similar use the wind face and the high speed scale.
Rotate the inner scale to put 340º at the top and mark the wind cross
30kt down from the centre ring.
Place the TAS, 420kt under the centre ring.
Put the course (track) of 017º initially at the top, read an initial
drift of 2.5º right.
Rotate the inner scale 2.5º to the right to lay off the drift then,
finally, read a heading of 015ºT, a drift of 2º right and a groundspeed
of 396kt. The WCA is –2º,

Question 113:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.3.1. Given:
Long range cruise, OAT -45°C at FL 350, Gross mass at the beginning of
the leg 40000 kg, Gross mass at the end of the leg 39000 kg. Find: True

339562.gif

A TAS 433 kt, 227 NAM


B TAS 433 kt, 1163 NAM
C TAS 423 kt, 227 NAM
D TAS 423 kt, 936 NAM

Explanation: NO

Question 114:
Given: Maximum allowable take-off mass 64400 kg, Maximum landing mass
56200 kg, Maximum zero fuel mass 53000 kg, Dry operating mass 35500 kg,
Traffic load 14500 kg, Trip fuel 4900 kg, Minimum Take-off Fuel 7400 kg.
Find: Maximum allowable take-off fuel

A 11100 kg
B 8600 kg
C 14400 kg
D 11400 kg

Explanation: We need Maximum Fuel at T/O … we need to consider both MTOM


and MLM … we will calculate a MAX FUEL for both T/O and landing.
TAKE-OFF
MAX FUEL at T/O = MTOM – DOM – TRAFFIC LOAD
= 64 400 – 35 500 – 14 500 = 14 400 kg
LANDING
MAX FUEL at LANDING = MLM – DOM – TL
= 56 200 – 35 500 – 14 500 = 6 200 kg
If we land with 6 200 kg of fuel – it means we Take-off with (6 200 + 4
900 TRIP FUEL) = 11 100 kg
So, to stay within both our T/O and Landing limits, we must take the
lower of these - 11 100 kg
Question 115:
Given: Maximum allowable take-off mass 64400 kg, Maximum landing mass
56200 kg, Maximum zero fuel mass 53000 kg, Dry operating mass 35500 kg,

Maximum additional load

A 3000 kg
B 5600 kg
C 4000 kg
D 7000 kg

Explanation: NO

Question 116:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.3C. Given:
Twin jet aeroplane, Ground distance to destination aerodrome is 1600 NM,
Headwind component 50 kt, FL 330, Cruise .78 Mach, ISA Deviation +20°C
and Landing mass 55000 kg Find: Fuel required and trip time with

Explanation: NO

Question 117:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.6. Given:
twin jet aeroplane, Dry operating mass 35500 kg, Traffic load 14500 kg,
Final reserve fuel 1200 kg, Distance to alternate 95 NM, Tailwind
component 10 kt Find: Fuel required and trip time to alternate with
simplified flight planning (ALTERNATE PLANNING)
333322.gif

A 1000 kg, 24 min


B 1000 kg, 40 min
C 800 kg, 24 min
D 800 kg, 0.4 hr

Explanation: Use Annex G, or CAP 697 page 39.


First you need to calculate
LANDING WEIGHT = Dry Operating Mass + Traffic Load + Final
Reserve
= 35500 + 14500 + 1200 =
51200 kg
Now to the chart and find 1000 kg, 0.4hr (24 minutes)

Question 118:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.4. Given: twin
jet aeroplane, Estimated mass on arrival at the alternate 50000 kg,
Estimated mass on arrival at the destination 52525 kg, Alternate
elevation MSL, Destination elevation 1500 ft Find: Final reserve fuel and
corresponding time
333324.gif

A 1180 kg, 30 min


B 1180 kg, 45 min
C 2360 kg, 01 h 00 min
D 2360 kg, 30 min

Explanation: Final Reserve Fuel for a TURBINE engined aeroplane is '30


minutes holding at 1500ft above the aerodrome (destination alternate).'
(IF you are not holding an alternate, then '30 minutes holding at 1500ft
above the aerodrome (destination).'

Question 119:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.4. Given: twin
jet aeroplane, Estimated mass on arrival at the alternate 50000 kg,
Elevation at destination aerodrome 3500 ft, Elevation at alternate
aerodrome 30 ft Find: Final reserve fuel
333324.gif

A 1180 kg
B 2300 kg
C 2360 kg
D 1150 kg

Explanation: CAP 697 MRJT FIG 4.4


FINAL RESERVE fuel is calculated (for a turbojet) as 30 mins fuel at
1500ft above DESTINATION ALTERNATE....hence your calculation is
correct...destination alternate is at 30ft amsl, so you need 30 mins fuel
at 1530ft (mass 50000kgs).
From the table – fuel flow 2280 kg/hr, so FINAL RESERVE = 1180 kgs
They have offered destination airfield elevation as a distraction - its
irrelevant!

Charles de Gaulle to London. SID is ABB 8A. Assume Variation 3° W, TAS
430kts, W/V 280/40 and distance to top of climb 50NM. Determine the
magnetic course, ground speed and wind correction angle from top of climb
to ABB 116.6.
33074.gif

A MC 349°, GS 414 kt, WCA -5°


B MC 169°, GS 414 kt, WCA 5°
C MC 169°, GS 450 kt, WCA 4°
D MC 349°, GS 414 kt, WCA 5°

Explanation: When observing the SID ABB 8A – it is seen that after 50NM,
you are on the final leg of the SID, magnetic track (course) 349*M. The
wind is 280/40 - from the left, so your heading must be offset to the
left (-ve WCA).
Also, there will be an element of headwind - so your GROUNDSPEED will be
LESS than your TAS. Therefore, the only option remaining is ... MC 349°,
GS 414 kt, WCA -5°

Question 132:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual SEP 1 Figure 2.4. Given:
Aeroplane mass at start-up 3663 lbs, Aviation gasoline (density 6
lbs/gal)-fuel load 74 gal, Take-off altitude sea level, Headwind 40 kt,
Cruising altitude 8000 ft, Power setting full throttle 2300 RPM 20°C lean
of peak EGT. Calculate the range.
339716.gif

A 633 NM
B 547.5 NM
C 730 NM
D 844 NM

Explanation: On the range graph there is a figure on the right hand side
of the setting lines which is the true airspeed in knots (in the case of
the full throttle/2300rpm line this is 160kts). To apply the headwind
correction, deduct 40 from 160 to give the groundspeed of 120kt, then
multiply the 844nm by the GS/TAS formula (i.e. by 120/160), which gives
633nm.
but the question is a little unfair....it just asks for the range...so do
they mean NAM or ground nm?
2 reasons for going for ground range
Firstly, they give you a wind component in the question data, so use
it....secondly, the answers offer 'nm' ranges...if they had wanted
nautical air mile range, I'm pretty confident they would have stated NAM
in the answers.

Question 139:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual SEP1 Figure 2.2 Table 2.2.3. A
flight has to be made with the single engine sample aeroplane. For the
fuel calculation allow 10 lbs fuel for start up and taxi, 3 minutes and 6
lbs of additional fuel to allow for the climb, 10 minutes and no fuel
correction for the descent. Planned flight time (overhead to overhead) is
02 hours and 37 minutes. Reserve fuel 30% of the trip fuel. Power setting
is 23 in.HG (or full throttle), 2300 RPM, 20°C lean. Flight level is 50
and the and Standard Day (ISA). The minimum block fuel is:
334736.gif

A 276 lbs
B 281 lbs
C 260 lbs
D 256 lbs

Explanation: First of all, I don't like these questions, and you are most
unlikely to see them in the UK exam system ..... however, for other
nationalities, a definite may be ...
Sector time = (Climb adjustment) 3mins + 2hrs 37mins + (descent
adjustment) 10 = 2hrs 50mins, or 2.833hrs
Fuel flow at cruise (5000ft, ISA, 2300RPM) = (69.4+71.1)/2 = 70.55 PPH
Sector fuel = (climb adjustment) 6 + (2.833 x 70.55) + (descent
adjustment) 0 = 6 + 200 + 0 = 206 lbs
So, Ramp fuel = TAXY + TRIP + RESERVE (30% of TRIP) = 10 + 206 + (30/100)
x 206 = 278 lbs
There are about 3 of these in the databank ..... once you understand what
they are doing, its sort of OK!!

Question 140:

C TACAN, channel 84, and a VOR frequency 113.7 MHz only
D VORTAC, frequency 113.7 MHz, and an NDB frequency 92 kHz

Explanation: JEPP MANUAL Chart E(LO)1


See Enroute chart legend page 53 (top right – „LIPTON‟)
In other words, it‟s a TACAN, and you can tune your VOR box to this
frequency and obtain DME information.
This is a useful question to know about!

Question 141:
Route Manual chart E(LO)1. The radio navigation aid at BELFAST CITY
(54°37'N 005°53'W) is :

A an NDB, frequency 420 kHz, NOT continuous operation


B a fan marker, frequency 420 kHz
C an NDB, frequency 420 kHz, continuous operation
D a TACAN, channel 420

Explanation: The * means non-continuous or part time operation - you can


find this on the front of the chart (under the picture) and in the JEPP
legend (page 54).

Question 142:
From which of the following would you expect to find information
regarding known short unserviceability of VOR, TACAN, and NDB ?

Question 146:
An airway is marked 3500T 2100 a. This indicates that:

A the minimum obstruction clearance altitude (MOCA) is 3500 ft


B the minimum enroute altitude (MEA) is 3500 ft
C the airway is a low level link route 2100 ft - 3500 ft MSL
D the airway base is 3500 ft MSL

Explanation: Its a matter of definition...look on page 8 of the Jepp


Manual Chart Glossary...MOCA is the lowest published altitude, MORA is a
Jepperson derived figure...so there are 'apparent' disagreements!

Question 147:
An airway is marked FL 80 1500 a. This indicates that:

A the minimum enroute altitude (MEA) is FL 80.


B 1500 ft MSL is the minimum radio reception altitude (MRA).
C the airway base is 1500 ft MSL.
D the airways extends from 1500 ft MSL to FL 80.

Explanation: NO

Question 149:
Route Manual chart E(HI)4 CAA-Edition. An appropriate flight level for
flight on airway UR1 from ORTAC (50°00'N 002°00'W) to MIDHURST MID 114.0
(51°03'N 000°37'W) is:

A FL250
B FL230
C FL260
D FL240

Explanation: The question does refer to the E(HI)4 CAA Edition.....SO YOU
MUST REFER TO THE E(HI) 4/5 chart....(marked at the top "CAA CPL/ATPL
Examinations")...and NOT the E(HI) 3/4
Be very careful, the two E(HI)4s are quite different in places...so if
the question says E(HI)4 CAA Edition....it‟s the E(HI)4/5!

Explanation: The question specifies 'via TANGO'


The correct arrival route and Initial Approach Fix (IAF) for an arrival
from the west via TANGO for runway 08 L/R is:
So the only routing through TANGO is the AALEN 1T .... Then apply Note 1
... ROKIL is the IAF.

Question 161:
Given : X = Distance A to point of equal time (PET) between A and B E =
Endurance D = Distance A to B O = Groundspeed 'on' H = Groundspeed 'back'
The formula for calculating the distance X to point of equal time (PET)
is:

A X = D X H / O + H
B X = D X O X H / O + H
C X = E X O X H / O + H
D X = D X O / O + H

Explanation: NO

Question 162:
Given : Course A to B 088° (T), distance 1250 NM, Mean TAS 330 kt, Mean
W/V 340°/60 kt. The time from A to the PET between A and B is :

A 1 hour 43 minutes
B 2 hours 02 minutes
C 1 hour 54 minutes
D 1 hour 39 minutes

Explanation: when you start with course (track) at the top, you MUST
apply the drift before you read the G/S.
we get:
O = 343kts
H = 306kts
....... which leads us to an answer of 1hr 43mins ....
Question 163:
Given : Distance X to Y 2700 NM, Mach Number 0.75, Temperature -45°C,
Mean wind component 'on', 10 kt tailwind, Mean wind compontent 'back' 35
kt tailwind. The distance from X to the point of equal time (PET) between
X and Y is :

A 1386 NM
B 1425 NM
C 1350 NM
D 1313 NM

Explanation: D = 2700nm
TAS = 440kts (wiz wheel)
O = 450kts
H = 475kts
Distance to PET = DH / (O+H) = (2700 x 475) / (450+475) = 1386nm
Don't forget to define 'O' and 'H' carefully.

Question 164:
Given: Distance A to B 2050 NM Mean groundspeed 'on' 440 kt Mean

of Safe Return (PSR) is:

A 5 hours 31 minutes
B 5 hours 20 minutes
C 3 hours 55 minutes
D 5 hours 45 minutes

Explanation: E=10hrs, O=440kt, H=540kt, Time to PSR=EH/(O+H) Time to


PSR=10x540/(440+540)= 5.510hr, 5hrs 31mins

Question 166:
Which of the following statements is (are) correct with regard to the
advantages of computer flight plans ? 1. The computer can file the ATC
flight plan. 2. Wind data used by the computer is always more up-to-date
than that available to the pilot.

A Statement 1 only
B Neither statement
C Both statements
D Statement 2 only

Explanation: Yes - this is a bit of an unfair question .... what you get
when you turn up at ops rather depends on the operator -
Generally you will turn up and the OPERATIONAL FLIGHT PLAN will be
waiting for you .... this will contain the
route/fuel/diversions/weights(T/O, landing etc) ... basically all
produced by computer to company requirements. There are a number of
companies around that produce these - ours were produced by a company in
the US. For us, on page 2 of the OPERATIONAL flight plan was the ATC
flight plan .... again, all generated by the computer system .... this
sort of system is fairly normal .... hence the answer to the question!!

Question 167:
Which of the following statements is (are) correct with regard to the
operation of flight planning computers ? 1. The computer can file the ATC
flight plan. 2. In the event of in-flight re-routing the computer
produces a new plan.

A Statement 1 only
B Both statements
C Neither statement
D Statement 2 only

Explanation: NO

Question 171:
Route Manual chart AMSTERDAM JAA MINIMUMS (10-9X). The Radio Altimeter
minimum altitude for a CAT 2 ILS DME approach to Rwy 01L is :

A 100 ft
B 188 ft
C 300 ft
D 88 ft

Explanation: When we talk about doing an ILS .... a standard ILS .... we
are basically talking about a CAT I ILS .... which gets us down to a
minimum of 200ft DH, 550m RVR. On the JAA mins charts (10-9X) this is
normally the top line of figures ... In the exam if the questions simply
ask for the minimum for an 'ILS' approach - they mean CAT I ILS.
In the JEPP MANUAL thee are a few CAT II ILS charts .... a CAT II ILS
will get you down to a minimum of RA 100 ft DH (Rad ALT), 300m RVR. For a
CAT II approach (or CAT III - but there aren't any charts) you ONLY need
the RAD ALT figure, however, they still give you the DA (QNH) and DH
(QFE) numbers as information only.

FL400 is the answer.

Question 182:
Which describes the maximum intensity of icing, if any, at FL180 in the
vicinity of CASABLANCA (33°N 008°W) ?
3311184.gif

A Severe
B Nil
C Moderate
D Light

Explanation: BEWARE have you been caught out by favourite CAA trick.
The point they are referring to is also shown to have ISOL EMBD CB from
the ground to FL320.
CBs ALWAYS tell you to expect Moderate to Severe turbulence & icing.

Question 183:
Which best describes the significant cloud, if any, forecast for the area
southwest of BODO (67°N 014°E)
3311185.gif

A 5 to 7 oktas CU and CB base below FL100, tops FL180

D 3 to 7 oktas CU and CB base below FL100, tops FL180

Explanation: NO

Question 184:
Which best describes be maximum intensity of icing, if any, at FL150 in
the vicinity of BUCHAREST (45°N 026°E) ?
3311186.gif

A Moderate
B Light
C Nil
D Severe

Explanation: The quality of this Annex is very poor.


It is sort of possible to make out the LAT and LONG, use London as a
starter….. Bucharest is the B 5.5cm from the bottom, 4.5cm from the left
edge!
Icing over Bucharest at FL150: the detail is just above the B, remember
the icing symbol has up to 3 verticals – light / moderate / severe.
So, from CHART base (FL100) to FL200 there is MODERATE ICING forecast.

Question 185:
Which best describes the maximum intensity of CAT, if any, forecast for
FL330 over BENGHAZI (32°N 020°E) ?
3311187.gif

A Nil
B Severe
C Moderate
D Light

Explanation: .... area 1 is MOD CAT .... but check the levels ..... its
not that clear, but we think it says FL360-450 ..... hence nothing at
FL330.

Question 186:
The maximum wind velocity (°/kt) shown in the vicinity of MUNICH (48°N

Explanation: NO

Question 190:
The approximate mean wind component (kt) at Mach 0.78 along true course
270° at 50°N from 000° to 010°W is
3311192.gif

A 40 kt headwind component
B 35 kt tailwind component
C 25 kt tailwind component
D 55 kt headwind component

Explanation: The wind at 50 N 000 is about 250/30


The next one is about 250/55
The wind at 50N 10W is about 250/50
That gives about 250/45. It is 20 degrees off the nose, so the headwind
component will be even slower.
The only answer that fits is a headwind component of 40 kts.

kg, Final reserve fuel: 2 400 kg. The fuel quantity which must be loaded
on board the aircraft is:
33036.gif

A 51 860 kg
B 52 060 kg
C 46 340 kg
D 41 950 kg

Explanation: Using the graphs provided and applying all the relevant

which we think the examiner is looking for.
If you see this question in your exam please let us know.

Question 199:
A turbojet aeroplane is prepared for a 1300 NM flight at FL 350, with a
true airspeed of 460 kt and a head wind of 160 kt. The take-off runway
limitation is 174 000 kg, the planned departure mass is 160 000 kg. The
departure fuel price is equal to 0.92 times the arrival fuel price (fuel
price ratio = 0.92). In order for the airline to optimize its savings,
the additional fuel quantity that must be loaded on board is:
33044.gif

A 14 000 kg
B 42 000 kg
C 12 000 kg
D 30 000 kg

Explanation: 14 000 kg
NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 1300 x (460/300) = 1993 NAM
Enter graph at Fuel price ratio 0.92 …. Across to NAM distance 1993 NAM,
then down to the base scale – OPT WEIGHT 204 000kg
Planned TOM 160 000kg – take an extra 44 000kg – but TOM limit 174 000 kg
– so you can only take an extra 14 000 kg

Question 200:
A turbojet aeroplane, weighing 200 000 kg, initiates its cruise at the
optimum level at M 0.84 (ISA, CG=37%, Total Anti Ice ON). A head wind of
30 kt is experienced and, after a distance of 500 NM, severe icing is
encountered and this requires an immediate descent. The aeroplane mass at
start of descent is:
33045.gif

A 192 500 kg
B 193 000 kg
C 193 800 kg
D 193 400 kg

Explanation: Calculate NAM = 536 NAM


• From table, INTEGRATED CRUISE M0.84
200 000 kg → 6778 NAM – 536 NAM = 6242 NAM
• From table 6242 NAM → 192 973 kg (interpolating)
• Fuel = 200 000 – 192 973 = 7 027 kg • Total ANTI ICE ON, +7%, 7027 x
1.07 = 7519 kg
• Mass at TOD = 200 000 – 7519 = 192 481 kg (answer = 192 500 kg)

Question 201:
Assuming a departure/destination fuel price ratio of 0.91, the commander
decides to optimize fuel tankering by using the following data: . Cruise
flight level: FL 350 . Air distance to be covered: 2 500 NM . Planned
take-off mass: 200 000 kg (with the minimum prescribed fuel quantity of
38 000 kg that includes a trip fuel of 29 000 kg) . Maximum landing mass:
180 000 kg . Maximum take-off mass: 205 000 kg . Maximum tank capacity:
40 000 kg The additional fuel quantity will be:
33044.gif

A 0 kg
B 3 000 kg
C 4 000 kg
D 2 000 kg

Explanation: NAM = 2500 NAM


Enter graph at Fuel price ratio 0.91 …. Across to NAM distance 2500 NAM,
then down to the base scale – OPT WEIGHT 198 000kg
Planned TOM 200 000kg – no extra fuel
Question 202:
Assuming a departure/destination fuel price ratio of 0.92, the commander
decides to optimize fuel tankering by using the following data: . Cruise
flight level: FL 350 . Air distance to be covered: 1 830 NM . Planned
take-off mass: 190 000 kg (with a minimum prescribed fuel quantity of 30
000 kg that includes a trip fuel of 22 000 kg) . Maximum landing mass:
180 000 kg . Maximum take-off mass: 205 000 kg . Maximum tank capacity:
40 000 kg The additional fuel quantity will be:
33044.gif

A 10 000 kg
B 12 000 kg
C 20 000 kg
D 15 000 kg

Explanation: NAM = 1830 NAM


Enter graph at Fuel price ratio 0.92 …. Across to NAM distance 1830 NAM,
then down to the basescale – OPT WEIGHT 210 000kg
Planned TOM 190 000kg – TOM limit 205 000kg extra fuel 15 000kg
Max LM 180 000 + trip fuel 22 000kg = Max TO 202 000 kg, extra fuel 12
000kg
But tank capacity 40 000kg, so extra fuel 10 000kg

Question 203:
Assuming the following data: Ground distance to be covered: 2 000 NM,
Cruise flight level: FL 330, Cruising speed: Mach 0.82 (true airspeed:
470 kt), Head wind component: 30 kt.Planned destination landing mass: 160
000 kg. Temperature: ISA. CG: 37%. Total anti-ice: ON. Pack flow: HI.

A 27 800 kg
B 29 200 kg
C 28 300 kg
D 27 000 kg

Explanation: This is the 'QUICK DETERMINATION' planning method


- calculate distance in NAM
- extract fuel and time from the table
- apply any required corrections
............. pack flow
............. anti-ice (bottom of table)
............. temperature - Note 3 of the additional information
............. landing weight (if different than reference 140 000kg) -
right side of table
SO:
- NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 2500 x (470/510) = 2304 NAM
- from the table ? FL350, 2304 NAM ? 26 960 kg
- CORRECTIONS
...... pack flow NORMAL
...... TOTAL anti ice OFF
...... ISA
...... LW correction 76 x 10 = 760 kg (LW 150000kg - 10000kg heavier than
reference)
FUEL = 26 960 + 760 = 27 720 kg

Question 206:
Assuming the following data: . Ground distance to be covered: 2 600 NM .
Cruise flight level: FL 370 . Cruising speed: Mach 0.82 (true airspeed:
470 kt) . Wind: zero wind during flight . Planned destination landing

Question 207:
A turbojet aeroplane is flying using the following data: . optimum flight
level, Mach 0.80, mass of 190 000 kg . temperature: ISA . tailwind
component: 100 kt The fuel mileage and the fuel consumption per hour are:
33046.gif

A 105 NM/1000 kg; 5330 kg/h


B 105 NM/1000 kg; 6515 kg/h
C 71 NM/1000 kg; 5330 kg/h
D 86 NM/1000 kg; 6515 kg/h

Explanation: From table – 190 000 kg, 6515 NAM, 459 kts
6515 – 459 = 6056 NAM → 184 600 kg
190 000 – 184 600 = 5400 kg/hr
Fuel mileage – ground distance covered in 1 hour 459 + 100 = 559 NGM
Therefore NM/1000kg = 559/5.4 = 103.5 NM/1000kg

Question 208:
A turbojet aeroplane is flying using the following data: . flight level
FL 250, Long Range (LR) cruise, mass of 150 000 kg . temperature: ISA .
head wind component: 100 kt . remaining flight time: 1 h 40 min The
ground distance that can be covered during the cruise flight is:
33047.gif

A 445 NM
B 612 NM
C 2031 NM
D 841 NM

Explanation: From table – 150 000kg → 2031 NAM 335 mins


335 mins – 100mins (1hr 40 mins) = 235mins
From table 235 mins → 1419 NAM
NAM distance = 2031 – 1419 = 612 NAM
Wind 100kts HW, 1hr 40mins(1.66hrs) 100 x 1.66 = 166NM
Ground distance = 612 – 166 = 446 NGM

Question 209:
Given: . Take-off mass: 150 000 kg . Planned cruise at FL 350 . Long
range MACH . Standard Atmosphere (ISA) . CG: 37 % Covering an air
distance of 2 000 NM, your trip fuel from take-off to landing will be:
330480.gif

A 22 360 kg
B 20 260 kg
C 21 760 kg
D 19 660 kg

Explanation: From the table,150 000 kg read 2464 NAM 2464 - 2000 = 464
NAM
From the table, 464 NAM read 133 250 kg
FUEL = 150 000 - 130 325 = 19 675 kg
Corrections:
CLIMB CORRECTION LR, FL350 +2100 kg
DECSENT CORRECTION LR, FL350
WEIGHT OVERHEAD ≈ 130 000 kg +600 kg
TRIP FUEL = 19 675 + 2100 + 600 = 22 375 kg

Question 210:

air distance of 2 000 NM. Your flight time will be:
330480.gif

A 304 minutes
B 359 minutes
C 298 minutes
D 288 minutes

Explanation: You have to cover an air distance of 2 000 NAM. Your flight
time will be:
- From table 150 000 kg → 2464 NAM 359 min
- 2464 NAM - 2000 NAM = 464 NAM ... from the table find 464 NAM .... look
at the top left corner of the table - you need to interpolate - 451NAM =
70 min, 472NAM = 73 min,
...SO, 464 is (close enough) = 72 min ... 359 - 72 = 287 min
- Climb correction 6 min
- Descent correction 10 min
- Time = 287 + 6 + 10 =303 min (correct answer 304 min)

A 29 440 kg
B 20 900 kg
C 27 770 kg
D 22 160 kg

Explanation: NO

Question 216:
The flight crew of a turbojet aeroplane prepares a flight using the
following data: - Flight leg distance: 3 500 NM - Flight level FL 310,
true airspeed: 450 kt - Headwind component at this level: 55 kt -
Initially planned take-off mass (without extra fuel on board): 180 000 kg
- Fuel price: 0.30 US Dollars/l at departure The commander may carry a
fuel quantity of 8 000 kg in addition to that which is necessary. For
this fuel transport operation to be cost effective, the maximum fuel
price at arrival must be:
33043.gif

A 0.33 $/l
B 0.27 $/l
C 0.26 $/l
D 0.28 $/l

Explanation: The question wants you to work in reverse:


Your TOM is 180 000kg, and it says the Captain could load an additional 8
000kg.
Therefore your 'optimum TOM' is 188 000 kg.
Enter the graph base scale at 188 000kg, vertically up to the 4000 NAM
line (you must convert NGM to NAM), now read the FPR 0.9.
Fuel Price Ratio = Departure price / destination price
FPR 0.9 = 0.3 / Dest price, so DEST PRICE = 0.3 / 0.9 = 0.333 $/l

Question 217:
The flight crew of a turbojet aeroplane prepares a flight using the
following data: - Flight leg distance: 3 500 NM - Flight level FL 310,
true airspeed: 450 kt - Headwind component at this level: 55 kt -
Initially planned take-off mass (without extra fuel on board): 180 000 kg
- Fuel price: 0.27 US Dollars/l at destination The commander may carry on
board 8 000 kg more fuel than that which is necessary. For this fuel
transport operation to be cost effective, the maximum fuel price at
departure must be:
33043.gif

A 0.24 $/l
B 0.28 $/l
C 0.30 $/l
D 0.29 $/l

Explanation: NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 3500 x (450 / 395) = 3987 NAM


Enter graph on base scale at 180 000 kg, up to 3987 NAM (4000 NAM), read
scale on the left .. fuel price ratio 0.905.
FPR = (departure price / destination price)
0.905 = departure price / 0.27
Departure price = 0.905 x 0.27 = 0.24 USD/litre

Question 218:
The flight crew of a turbojet aeroplane prepares a flight using the
following data: - Flight level FL 370 at "Long Range" (LR) cruise regime
- Mass at brake release: 212 800 kg - Flight leg ground distance: 2 500
NM - Temperatures: ISA - CG: 37% - Headwind component: 30 kt - "Total
anti-ice" set on "ON" for the entire flight - No requested climb and
descent correction of the fuel consumption The fuel consumption (from
take-off to landing) is:
60-0254.gif

A 34 430 kg
B 32 480 kg
C 28 720 kg
D 30 440 kg

Explanation: NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 2500 x (470/440) = 2670 NAM


From table 212 800 kg → 8083 NAM
(8083 – 2670) = 5413 NAM → 180 329 kg
Fuel = (212 800 – 180 329) = 32 471 kg
Total Anti-ice 0n +6% = 32 471 x 1.06 = 34 419 kg (correct answer
34430kg)
ISA, no correction for climb/descent

Question 219:

- Fuel price: 0.27 Euro/l at departure; 0.30 Euro/l at destination To
maximize savings, the commander chooses to carry extra fuel in addition
to that which is necessary. Using the appended annex, the optimum
quantity of fuel which should be carried in addition to the prescribed
quantity is:
33043.gif

A 8 000 kg
B 32 000 kg
C The fuel transport operation is not recommended in this case.
D 18 000 kg

Explanation: NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 4000 x (450/400) = 4500 NAM


FPR = (Departure price/Destination price) = 0.27/0.30) = 0.90
Enter graph 0.90 FPR → 4500 NM ↓ OPTIMUM WEIGHT = 178 000 kg
TOM 170 000 kg, no other limits, so TANKER 8 000kg

Wiz wheel ….. GS OUT = 202kts GS HOME = 135kts
Calculate fuel flow outbound:
Leg time = (distance/GS) = 243 / 202 = 1.203 hours
Fuel flow = Fuel used / Time = 437 / 1.203 = 363 litres/hour
Calculate fuel used BULEN – ARD
Leg time = (distance/GS) = 243 / 135 = 1.800 hours
Fuel used = fuel flow x time = 363 x 1.800 = 653 litres
Total fuel consumption = 869 + 20 + 653 = 1542 litres

Question 242:
In the cruise at FL 155 at 260 kt TAS, the pilot plans for a 500 feet/min
descent in order to fly overhead MAN VOR at 2 000 feet (QNH 1030). TAS
will remain constant during descent, wind is negligible, temperature is
standard. The pilot must start the descent at a distance from MAN of:

A 120 NM
B 110 NM
C 130 NM
D 140 NM

Explanation: You must correct for FL155 (1013) and 2000ft (QNH 1030)
Correction is (1030-1013) x 30 = 510ft....so total descent is:
15500+510-2000ft = 14000ft, or 28 minutes at 500ft/min
Distance = 260x28/60 = 121nm
Question 243:
You must fly IFR on an airway orientated 135° magnetic with a MSA at 7
800 ft. Knowing the QNH is 1 025 hPa and the temperature is ISA + 10°,
the minimum flight level you must fly at is:

A 90
B 70
C 75
D 80

Explanation:

Question 244:
An aircraft, following a 215° true track, must fly over a 10 600 ft
obstacle with a minimum obstacle clearance of 1 500 ft. Knowing the QNH
received from an airport close by, which is almost at sea-level, is 1035
and the temperature is ISA -15°C, what is the minimum FL the aircraft
should fly at allowing for the temperature variation?

A 140
B 150
C 120
D 130

Explanation: The 660 is the QNH/1013 correction...so we need 10600 + 1500


- 660 = 11440ft...now correct for temp (ISA -15)...4%/10 degrees, ie
6%...from ac to datum (SL).....6%x11440 = 685ft...now, high to lo careful
go...so it is a plus correction...11440 + 685 = 12125ft.....we need an
EVEN level....FL140

Question 245:
It is possible, in flight, to: 1 - file an ATC flight plan 2 - modify an
active ATC flight plan 3 - cancel an active ATC flight plan 4 - close an
active ATC flight plan Which of the following combinations contains all
of the correct statements?

A 1, 2, 3, 4
B 2, 3, 4
C 1, 2, 3
D 1, 2, 4

Explanation: Think of it this way -


.... after you have landed - flight plan closed, or
.... you have a change of plan, or halfway through your sector you want
to go elsewhere ... or go VFR ... etc - flight plan cancelled.

Question 246:
The planned flight is over a distance of 440 NM Based on the wind charts
at altitude the following components are found; FL50: -30kt; FL100: -
50kt; FL180: -70kt The Operations Manual in appendix details the
aircraft's performances Which of the following flight levels (FL) gives
the best range performance:

A FL 180
B FL 100
C Either FL 050 or FL 100
D FL 050

Explanation:

Question 247:
On an IFR navigation chart, in a 1° quadrant of longitude and latitude,
appears the following information "80". This means that within this
quadrant:

A the minimum safe altitude is 8 000 ft


B the minimum flight level is FL 80
C the floor of the airway is at 8 000 ft
D the altitude of the highest obstacle is 8 000 ft

Explanation: NO

Question 248:
You are to determine the maximum fuel load which can be carried in the
following conditions : - dry operating mass : 2800 kg - trip fuel : 300
kg - payload : 400 kg - maximum take-off mass : 4200 kg - maximum landing
mass : 3700 kg

A 800 kg
B 1000 kg
C 500 kg
D 700 kg

Explanation: Every time you go flying you will consider 3 limits....MTOM,


MZFM, and MLM.
MTOM and MLM are either structural or performance limits (depending on
conditions), MZFM is a structural limit. Its up to you to ensure you do
not exceed these limits...for any set of conditions, one of these limits
will offer the 'critical value' in terms of payload or fuel.
For this question you are only concerned with fuel, so MZFM doesn't come
into it....
A table will help
T/O LAND
LIMIT 4200 3700
DOM 2800 2800
LOAD 400 400
FUEL 1000 500
So max fuel at T/O is 1000kgs and max fuel at landing is 500kgs; now add
the trip fuel to the landing fuel....300+500=800kgs
Therefore, max fuel at T/O dictated by the MLM limit....you can T/O with
800kgs of fuel (within MTOM limit), you will then land at MLM.
Question 249:
After flying for 16 min at 100 kt TAS with a 20 kt tail wind component,
you have to return to the airfield of departure. You will arrive after:

A 24 min
B 16 min
C 20 min
D 10 min 40 sec

Explanation: Speed = Distance / Time


Ground Speed out = 100 + 20 = 120 kts
Distance out = 120 x (16/60) = 32 nm
Return leg ground speed = 100 - 20 = 80 kts
So return time = 32 / 80 = 0.4 hours = 24 minutes

A 25 NM
B 15 NM
C 10 NM
D 20 NM

Explanation: NO

Question 254:
An IFR flight is planned outside airways on a course of 235° magnetic.
The minimum safe altitude is 7800 ft. Knowing the QNH is 995 hPa, the
temperature is ISA, the minimum flight level you must fly is:

A 100
B 85
C 80
D 90

Explanation: NO

Question 255:
From the departure point, the distance to the point of equal time is:

A inversely proportional to the sum of ground speed out and ground speed
back
B inversely proportional to ground speed back
C inversely proportional to the total distance to go
D proportional to the sum of ground speed out and ground speed back

Explanation: Distance to Point of Equal Time (PET) = D x H


(O + H)
Distance to PET is directly proportional to D (total distance)
to PET is directly proportional to H (groundspeed „home‟ (back))
Distance to PET is inversely proportional to (O + H) (sum of groundspeed
„out‟ and groundspeed „home‟ (back))

The fuel required from C - D is :

A 3700 kg
B 4000 kg
C 3400 kg
D 3100 kg

Explanation: Turn to CAP 697 MRJT Figure 4.5.3.1 page 32 (LRC FL340)
STEP 1: (find the TAS)
TAS 431 kt ... ISA? TAS 431 kt
STEP 2: (calculate leg distance in NAM)
NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS)
.......= 680 x 431/371 = 800 nam
STEP 3: Table: (calculate END mass)
............ Mass ......Range
Start... 44700 kg→ 2150 NAM
....................... - 800 (from Step 2)
End .... 40950 kg← 1350 NAM
FUEL.... 3750 kg
ISA = 3750 kg

Question 284:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given :
Brake release mass : 58 000 kg Temperature : ISA + 15 The fuel required
to climb from an aerodrome at elevation 4000 ft to FL300 is :
3312304.gif

A 1250 kg
B 1450 kg
C 1350 kg
D 1400 kg

Explanation: CAP 697 FIG 4.5.1 ... OAT +15 .... so you need PAGE 21 ....
... put your ruler along the FL300 row, read off 58 000kg column =
1350kg.
This 1350kg is the fuel required for a climb from an airfield at MSL ...
so we need to apply the correction given at the bottom of the Table ....
Fuel Adjustment for high elevation airports .... for an airfield at
4000ft, subtract 100kg from tabulated value ... hence the answer 1250kg

Question 285:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.1. Given :
Brake release mass : 62 000 kg Temperature : ISA + 15°C The fuel required

kg The fuel required from B - C is :
3312306.gif

A 6090 kg
B 6125 kg
C 4945 kg
D 4975 kg

Explanation: NO

Question 287:
See Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.2 and 4.5.3.3. Given :
Distance B - C : 1200 NM Cruise Mach 0.78 at FL300 Temperature Deviation
from ISA : -14°C Tailwind component :40 kt Gross mass at B : 50 200 kg
The fuel required from B - C is :

A 6150 kg
B 5850 kg
C 7050 kg
D 7300 kg

Explanation: CAP 697, Section 4 page 56 - M0.78, FL300


Put your ruler along the 50 000kg ROW. The columns (0. 100, 200, ...) are
showing you increments of 100kg mass. So ...
50 000kg = 2765NAM, 50 100kg = 2783NAM, 50 200kg = 2800NAM
Question 288:
See Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.2 and 4.5.3.4. Given :
Distance C - D : 540 NM Cruise 300 KIAS at FL 210 Temperature Deviation
from ISA : +20°C Headwind component : 50 kt Gross mass at C : 60 000 kg
The fuel required from C to D is :

A 4200 kg
B 3680 kg
C 4620 kg
D 3350 kg

Explanation: CAP 697 section 4 page 68 – a 3 step method:


1. calculate TAS
2. calculate leg distance in NAM (use formula)
3. back to table – enter at START MASS, calculate END MASS – difference
is FUEL required
1. TAS 406kts, ISA +20ºC, Note 2 (C) +20kts, 426kts
2. NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 540 x (426/376) = 612 NAM
3. START MASS 60000kg …. Range 3898 NAM …. Subtract 612 NAM = 3286NAM
Back to the table – look for 3286 (3284 close enough) … corresponds to
mass 52800kg (END MASS)
(START MASS – END MASS) = FUEL REQUIRED = 60000 – 52800 = 4200kg
Lastly, small correction (Note 2 A), +1%, +42kg, 4242kg

Question 289:
See Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.2 and 4.5.3.4. Given :
Distance B - C : 350 NM Cruise 300 KIAS at FL 210 Temperature : - 40°C
Tailwind component :70 kt Gross mass at B : 53 200 kg The fuel required
from B - C is :

A 1940 kg
B 2670 kg
C 2800 kg
D 1810 kg

Explanation: There are 3 steps to take in working out the answer:


CAP 697 MRJT Figure 4.5.3.3 page 68
STEP 1:
TAS 406 kt
ISA at FL210 -27°C ... so ISA -13°C, or -13 kt
TAS 393kts
STEP 2:
NAM = NGM x (TAS/GS) = 350 x 393/463 = 297 NAM
STEP 3: Table:
……..Mass....... Range
Start ... 53200 kg → 2895 NAM
... ... ... ... ... ... ... -297 (from Step 2)
End ..... 51250 kg ← 2598 NAM
FUEL .. 1950 kg
ISA, -13°, so -0.65%= -13kg, 1937kg
The answer gained may not always be exactly one of the ones given in the
multiple choices, you must go for the nearest available answer.
Question 290:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.4. - HOLDING
PLANNING . The fuel required for 30 minutes holding, in a racetrack
pattern, at PA 1500 ft, mean gross mass 45 000 kg, is :
333324.gif

A 1090 kg
B 1010 kg
C 2180 kg
D 1310 kg

Explanation: NO

Question 291:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.4.- HOLDING
PLANNING). NGM= NAM x (TAS+-Wind/ TAS) The fuel required for 45 minutes
holding, in a racetrack pattern, at PA 5000 ft, mean gross mass 47 000
kg, is :
333324.gif

A 1635 kg
B 1090 kg
C 1125 kg
D 1690 kg

Explanation: Refer to FIG 4.4 in the CAP, or use the image - fuel flow at
5000ft, 47 000kg is 2180 kg/hr (interpolating between 2220 and 2140
kg/hr). Hence, for 45 minutes holding, fuel required = 2180 x (45/60) =
1635 kg

Question 292:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.6. Given:
Distance to Alternate: 450 NM Landing mass at Alternate : 45 000 kg
Tailwind component : 50 kt The Alternate fuel required is :
333322.gif

A 2500 kg
B 3050 kg
C 2900 kg
D 2750 kg

Explanation: This is all to do with use of reference lines ... a


reference line simply allows you to adjust the 'calculation' for a
further condition ... and when using reference lines, we ALWAYS GO TO THE
REF LINE FIRST, then adjust to the condition ... so for this problem:
1. Enter on the base scale at 450nm ... up to the ref line ... make a
pencil mark.
2. Follow 'adjustment curve' back down till you meet the condition '50kt
tail', make a pencil mark.
3. Now vertically up to the next section .... 45000kg Landing weight ...
make a pencil mark.
4. Now across to the right hand scale .... 2500kg of fuel required.
.... remember, always to the ref line first, then adjust to the
condition.

3312314.gif

A 290/75
B 310/85
C 310/75
D 100/75

Explanation: If you left click on the 'view larger image' caption, then
left click again - should give an OK picture ... I'm happy with a 270
track ... so 310 is kinda ruled out - it is definitely not 40 degrees
between 270 and the wind arrow!

Question 297:
The W/V (°/kt) at 40°N 020°W is
3312316.gif

A 310/40
B 135/40
C 155/40
D 334/40

Explanation: 40N 020W is on the left side of the chart - (the TEMP at
this point is -42) ...
The wind arrow here has 4 lines (40 kts) and the direction is about 30 or
40 degrees North of 270 .... hence the answer 310/40
In the actual exam we have never heard of a problem with chart print
quality so it should be more straightforward.

of TOULOUSE (44° N 01°E) ?
3312322.gif

A moderate or severe
B moderate
C nil
D light

Explanation: The presence of 'CBs' implies MOD SEVERE ICING and


TURBULENCE.

Question 306:
Which describes the maximum intensity of turbulence, if any, forecast for
FL260 over TOULOUSE (44°N001°E) ?
3312322.gif

A severe
B nil
C light
D moderate

Explanation: As an aviator - you certainly want to know where the TS or


CBs are going to be - conditions could be most severe - if you have a
weather radar you will be working hard to avoid the worst - also anti ice
systems may need to be on.
Without weather radar - do you need to take another route??

Explanation: NO

Question 309:
What lowest cloud conditions (oktas/ft) are forecast for JOHANNESBURG/JAN
SMUTS at 0300 UTC?
3312329.gif

A 5 to 7 at 400
B 5 to 7 at 800
C 3 to 4 at 400
D 3 to 4 at 800

Explanation: The question asks for the lowest cloud conditions forecast
for 0300 UTC. Look at all the TEMPOs and PROBs…..third line….PROB30 0305
3000 BKN004
FM0800….. The lowest cloud is 5 to 7 OKTAS at 400ft

Question 310:
The forecast period covered by the PARIS/CHARLES-DE-GAULLE TAFs totals
(hours)
3312335.gif

A 27
B 20
C 18
D 9

Explanation: There are 2 TAFs for CDG ....


FC1100 .... valid from the 12th 0900 to the 12th 1800 (9 hour TAF)
FT1000 .... valid from the 12th 1800 through to 1200 on the 13th (18 hour
TAF)
So the total period covered by the TAFs ... 12th 0900 to 13th 1200 ... 27
hours

Question 311:
The lowest cloud conditions (oktas/ft) at BORDEAUX/MERIGNAC at 1330 UTC
were
3312335.gif

A 1 to 2 at 3000
B 3 to 4 at 800
C 3 to 4 at 2000
D 1 to 4 at 3000

Explanation: The question asks 'what is the .....' so we use the ACTUAL
'SA1330 .... ' , not the forecast.
Question 312:
The surface wind velocity (°/kt) at PARIS/CHARLES-DE-GAULLE at 1330 UTC
was
3312335.gif

A 270/04

D 300/05

Explanation: NO

Question 313:
Which best describes the weather, if any, at LYON/SATOLAS at 1330 UTC ?
3312335.gif

A light rain associated with thunderstorms


B nil
C frequent rain showers
D fog

Explanation: NO

Question 314:
Which is the heaviest type of precipitation, if any, forecast for
BORDEAUX/MERIGNAC at 1000 UTC ?
3312335.gif

A light rain
B heavy rain associated with thunderstorms
C nil
D rain showers

Explanation: The FT1000 valid 12 1800-1200 is what you need .... last
line BECMG 1012 -RA=
Sometime during the period 1000 to 1200 the weather WILL become LIGHT
RAIN
Could be 1000, could be 1200 .... so the answer is LIGHT RAIN.

Question 315:
What maximum surface windspeed (kt) is forecast for BORDEAUX/MERIGNAC at
1600 UTC ?
3312336.gif

A 30
B 5
C 25
D 10

Explanation: The TAF says TEMPO1218 28020G30


- a TEMPO lasts for no more than one hour on any one occasion and the
total time spent in those conditions will not add up to more than half
the period
SO, between 1200 and 1800 the wind could be up to 30 KT

Question 316:
Which best describes the weather, if any, forecast for JOHANNESBURG/JAN
SMUTS at 0400 UTC?
3312329.gif

A patches of fog
B mist and/or fog
C CAVOK
D rain associated with thunderstorms

Explanation: NO

Question 317:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. For a
flight of 2800 ground nautical miles the following apply : Head wind
component 15 kt Temperature ISA + 15°C Cruise altitude 35000 ft Landing
mass 50000 kg The (a) trip fuel and (b) trip time respectively are :
3312352.gif

A (a) 17600 kg (b) 6 hr 50 min


B (a) 16200 kg (b) 6 hr 20 min
C (a) 17000 kg (b) 6 hr 10 min
D (a) 20000 kg (b) 7hr 00 min

Explanation: Enter at 2800nm - to the WIND REF line ... adjust to 15kt
head wind ...make a pencil mark ...vertically up to 35000ft (interpolate
between 33 & 37) ... across to the LANDING WEIGHT REF LINE.
Now adjust to the 50000kg LANDING WEIGHT condition (use the dashed line,
this is 37000ft, close enough to 35000ft!).
From the 50000 kg condition, read the scale - should have 17800kg!

Question 318:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. For a
flight of 2800 ground nautical miles the following apply : Head wind
component 20 kt Temperature ISA + 15°C Brake release mass 64700 kg The
(a) trip fuel, and (b) trip time respectively are :
3312351.gif

A (a) 17000 kg (b) 6hr 45 min


B (a) 16200 kg (b) 6hr 20 min
C (a) 18400 kg (b) 7hr 00 min
D (a) 15800 kg (b) 6hr 15 min

Explanation: NO
Question 319:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. For a
flight of 1900 ground nautical miles the following apply : Head wind
component 10 kt Temperature ISA -5°C Trip fuel available 15000 kg Landing
mass 50000kg What is the minimum cruise level (pressure altitude) which
may be planned ?
3312352.gif

A 17000 ft
B 10000 ft
C 22000 ft
D 14000 ft

Explanation: This question involves „backwards use‟ of the reference


lines …
NORMAL use of the REF LINES means you go to the REF LINE … then adjust to
the condition.
Backwards use of the REF LINES …. To the CONDITION FIRST, then adjust
back to the REF LINE.
So for this question, we need altitude …
Work normally with DISTANCE and WIND, draw a line straight through the
ALTITUDE section.
Now work backwards with FUEL and LW … enter at 15000kg, straight across
to 50000kg LW condition, now adjust down to the REF LINE. BUT, which
curve do we use – we need to know altitude – so guess to start with – use
a „mid‟ line, half way between 37000ft and 10000ft (23000) … this takes
me to one grid square above the 14000kg line … now draw a line straight
through the altitude section … the 2 lines intersect at 17000ft.
Now we could go back and adjust our LW correction to reflect 17000ft …
(we guessed 23000ft) … this would bring it 1½ grid squares above 14000kg
… answer 16500ft?? (but looking at the answers, there isn‟t really a
need!)
There are a few of these “BACKWARDS” questions in the exam system.

Question 320:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. Given the
following : Head wind component 50 kt Temperature ISA + 10°C Brake
release mass 65000kg Trip fuel available 18000kg What is the maximum
possible trip distance ?
3312351.gif

A 2740 NM
B 2540 NM
C 3480 NM
D 3100 NM

Explanation: This question requires backwards use of the MRJT simplified


planning charts -
When you are working 'normally' through these charts you go to the ref
line first, then you adjust to the condition.
But, when working backwards through these charts - you go to the
condition first, then adjust back to the ref line.
For this particular question enter at 18000kg FUEL, across to the 65000kg
BRW curve, then down to the 50kt headwind condition. From this point,
down and left to the wind ref line.
Read the distance scale ... 2740NM

Question 321:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. Within
the limits of the data given, a mean temperature increase of 30°C will
affect the trip time by approximately :
3312352.gif

A -5%
B +5%
C -7%
D +8%

Explanation: OK, the question is a little unfair in not giving you a


time, but in theory you could choose any time....the % change SHOULD be
the same.....BUT, because of the accuracy required, and the quality(?) of
the chart the answers will vary......so to give yourself a chance, use a
time of 5 or 6 hours where the difference in -10 to +20 should be
significant and 'readable'.

Question 322:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. For a
flight of 2000 ground nautical miles, cruising at 30000 ft, within the
limits of the data given, a headwind component of 25 kt will affect the
trip time by approximately :
3312352.gif

A +7.6%
B -3.6%
C +5.3%
D +2.3%

Explanation: Use either the Annex or CAP 697 page 30 which has a better
print quality.
Enter at 2000 NGM……… ZERO wind trip time…... 4.830hrs
25kt head wind trip time..
5.150hrs
An increase
of…… 0.330hrs
As a percentage of the still air time:+ 0.330 x 100 = + 6.85 %
4.830

Question 323:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. Given a
trip time of about 9 hours, within the limits of the data given, a
temperature decrease of 30°C will affect the trip time by approximately :
3312351.gif
A + 7%
B -10%
C -4%
D + 3%

Explanation: The answers come from the top left (time) section of the
chart.....
CAP697 Section 4 page 15...looking at the 9 hr trip time....
at ISA +20....the 9 hrs becomes 8.6 hrs
at ISA -10....the 9 hrs becomes 9.2 hrs
SO, a 30 degree decrease in temp has increased trip time by 0.6 hrs
As a percentage....(0.6/8.6) x 100 = +7%

Question 324:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. For a
flight of 2800 ground nautical miles the following apply: Tail wind
component 45kt, Temperature ISA - 10°C, Cruise altitude 29000ft, Landing
mass 55000kg. The (a) trip fuel (b) trip time respectively are :
3312352.gif

A (a) 17100kg (b) 6hr 07 min


B (a) 16000kg (b) 6hr 25 min
C (a) 18000kg (b)5hr 50 min
D (a) 20000kg (b) 6hr 40 min

Explanation: MRJT simplified planning charts


Fig 4.3.1c is typical of these charts - you work through the chart
section by section (starting with trip distance) taking into account (for
this chart) WIND, PRESSURE ALTITUDE, LANDING WEIGHT and TEMPERATURE.
The adjustments involve the use of REFERENCE LINES (WIND for example) ...
when using the REFERENCE LINES - you go to the REF LINE first - make a
pencil mark - then adjust to the condition.
SO, looking at this example - enter on the base scale (DISTANCE) at
2800NM, go vertically UP to the WIND REF LINE - make a pencil mark. From
the REF LINE, adjust to your condition - 45KT TAIL WIND - so go DOWN and
LEFT following the adjustment curves until you reach 45KT TAIL - make a
pencil mark. Now draw a line vertically up through BOTH sets of PRESSURE
ALTITUDE curves.
From the lower 29000ft ALTITUDE curve (the third line up), draw a line
horizontally right to the LANDING WEIGHT REF LINE - make a pencil mark.
Now we need to adjust to the LW condition 55000kg. There are 2 adjustment
curves - a dashed curve, which we would follow IF we were at 37000ft, and
a solid curve, which we would follow IF we were at 10000ft. We are at
29000ft - so we need to interpolate between the two (37000ft and
10000ft). The best way of doing this is probably to draw (from your mark
on the REF LINE) 2 lines - one that follows the 10000ft adjustment curve,
and the one that follows the 37000ft adjustment curve. Having done this -
you can now interpolate between the 2 at the 55000kg LW condition
(29000ft is about 1/3 of the way between 37000ft and 10000ft). You should
be at about 17000kg.
Time is easy - from the top pressure altitude curve (29000ft and above)
go left to the TEMP REF LINE - now adjust UP and RIGHT to the ISA-10*C
condition - read the scale - you should get about 6.1 or 6.2 hours.
Question 325:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. For a
flight of 3500 ground nautical miles, the following apply : Tail wind
component 50 kt Temperature ISA +10°C Brake release mass 65000kg The (a)
trip fuel and (b) trip time respectively are :
3312351.gif

A (a) 18100 kg (b) 7hr 20 min


B (a) 21800 kg (b) 9hr 25 min
C (a) 19000 kg (b) 7hr 45min
D (a) 15800 kg (b) 6hr 00 min

Explanation: To deal with a tailwind, enter the graph at the nautical


ground miles figure and go vertically up to the REF LINE (as you would
with a headwind), then, instead of following the curved lines up to the
headwind figure, follow the lines backwards until you get to the
intersection with the tailwind component (-50 in this case) and then draw
the line vertically upwards from there until the intersection with the
brake release weight required.
The rest is the same as for the headwind component calculations.

Question 326:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. The
following apply: Temperature ISA +15°C Brake release mass 62000kg Trip
time 5hr 20 min What is the trip fuel ?
3312351.gif

A 13500kg
B 13200kg
C 13800kg
D 13000kg

Explanation: At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure


4.3.5.
The following apply:
Temperature ISA +15°C
Brake release mass 62000kg
Trip time 5hr 20 min
Enter at 5.333hrs .... to ISA +15 .... across to ref line (Im at 5.55 hrs
now)
Now to brake release wt curve, now down to MASS 62000kg (interpolate
carefully) - across to fuel - right on 13500kg?
These are fairly standard questions .... always think carefully about the
scale, units (eg decimal of hrs v hrs and mins .... sharp pencil ......
and so on!!

Question 327:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. For a
flight of 2400 ground nautical miles the following apply : Temperature
ISA -10°C Cruise altitude 29000ft Landing mass 45000kg Trip fuel
available 16000kg What is the maximum headwind component which may be
accepted ?
3312352.gif

A 35 kt
B 0
C 70kt
D 15kt

Explanation: Enter at 2400nm, up to the wind REF LINE and just make a
pencil mark.
Now from 16000kg Fuel, work backwards.
This can be tricky - but for this example, the landing weight is 45000kg,
which is the LW REF LINE, so there is no LW adjustment to make.
Just draw a line from 16000kg across to the 29000ft pressure altitude
curve.
From here, draw a line down to the WIND REF LINE. Where this line meets
the WIND adjustment curve you marked earlier you get the 'max' head wind
.... We come up with a fraction under 40kts.
The answer spread is 35 / 15 / 70 / 0 ...... so the answer must be 35
kts.
Do NOT get worried if your answer is slightly different from those on
offer - this is quite common.
But In this case I would be more than happy with the 35kt option ....

Question 328:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. The
following apply : Tail wind component 10kt Temperature ISA +10°C Brake
release mass 63000kg Trip fuel available 20000kg What is the maximum
possible trip distance ?
3312351.gif

A 3740 NM
B 3250 NM
C 3500 NM
D 3640 NM

Explanation: NO

Question 329:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.5. For a
flight of 2400 ground nautical miles the following apply : Tail wind 25kt
Temperature ISA - 10°C Brake release mass 66000kg The (a) trip fuel and
(b) trip time respectively are :
3312351.gif

A (a) 14000kg (b) 5hr 35 min


B (a) 15800kg (b)6hr 20 min
C (a) 14600kg (b) 5hr 45 min
D (a) 15000kg (b) 6hr 00 min
Explanation: Enter the graph at the bottom at 2400 nm, then go straight
up to the ref line.
Then come back down to -25kts.
This puts you on the 2300nm line.
Then go up the graph and read off at 65,000ish - 14000kg.
Then go up to the trip time diagonal.
This reads off directly at 5.5 but don't forget to account for ISA dev.
Go back up a little to get the answer.
Oh, and don‟t forget to convert to hours and minutes!!

Question 330:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.3.1C. For a
flight of 2400 ground nautical miles the following apply : Tail wind
component 25 kt Temperature ISA -10°C Cruise altitude 31000ft Landing
mass 52000kg The (a) trip fuel and (b) trip time respectively are :
3312352.gif

A (a) 14200kg (b) 5 hr 30 min


B (a) 16200kg (b) 5 hr 45 min
C (a) 12000kg (b) 5 hr 15 min
D (a) 13600kg (b) 6 hr 30 min

Explanation: Enter on TRIP DISTANCE scale at 2400 NM … go vertically up


to the WIND REF line – make a pencil mark ...
... adjust to 25 kt TAIL WIND condition … so follow the adjustment curves
down and left to 25 kt TAILWIND … make a pencil mark … now draw a line
vertically UP through the 2 sets of PRESSURE ALTITUDE curves.
From the first set of PRESSURE ALTITUDE curves … find 31000ft
(interpolate between 29000 and 33000) … from this point, go right
horizontally to the LANDING WEIGHT REFERENCE line … make a pencil mark.
Now adjust to the LW condition 52000kg … there are 2 curves … the dashed
line, which you would follow IF you were at 37000ft, and the solid line,
which you would follow IF you were at 10000ft … so you need to
interpolate between the two. This is a bit of a fiddle – but if you just
draw both adjustment lines (37000ft and 10000ft – the interpolation will
become straight forward – look at the answers – the spread is quite
reasonable.
For trip time, go to the TOP PRESSURE ALTITUDE curves … 29 & ABOVE …
across to the ISA DEVIATION REF LINE - make a pencil mark … now adjust to
your condition ISA-10⁰C, so right and up to ISA -10 … now read the scale.

Question 331:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.3. Given:

Explanation: NO

Question 332:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.3. Given:
Diversion distance 720NM Tail wind component 25kt Mass at point of
diversion 55000kg Temperature ISA Diversion fuel available 4250kg What is
the minimum pressure altitude at which the above conditions may be met ?
3312361.gif

A 25000ft
B 16000ft
C 14500ft
D 20000ft

Explanation: Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.3.;


Normally you would work from DISTANCE to WIND to ALTITUDE to WEIGHT and
arrive at the FUEL required. However in this question it is the ALTITUDE
that is required.
First, enter at 720nm, to the WIND REF LINE, adjust to 25kt TAIL, then
draw a line straight through the ALTITUDE section.
Now enter at 4250kg and work backwards ... across to the 55000kg WEIGHT
condition, and then adjust back to the WEIGHT REF LINE.
From this point on the REF LINE, draw a line straight through the
ALTITUDE section.
Where the 2 lines meet - read the ALTITUDE - 24000ft...

Question 333:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.3. Given:
Diversion distance 650 NM Diversion pressure altitude 16 000 ft Mass at
point of diversion 57 000 kg Head wind component 20 kt Temperature ISA +
15°C The diversion (a) fuel required and (b) time, are approximately :
3312361.gif

A (a) 4800kg (b) 2h 03min


B (a) 6200kg (b) 2h 10min
C (a) 4400kg (b) 1h 35min
D (a) 3900kg (b) 1h 45min

Explanation: Work through the graphs a section at a time – make sure you
use a sharp HB pencil!
Start with Fig 4.7.3
First of all, use of reference lines - always go to the ref line first,
then adjust to the condition .....
So Enter at 650nm .... to the wind REF LINE .... adjust to 20kt Head wind
- make a pencil mark.
Now go up to 16000ft Pressure Alt (interpolate between 18 and 14) - make
a pencil mark.
Now horizontally to the WEIGHT ref line.
Now we need to adjust to the 57000 kg condition. - There are 2 adjustment
curves - 6000ft and 26000ft - you need to interpolate 'mid way' .... (the
ques altitude is 16000ft). So at the CONDITION (570000) ... go across to
the scale - we actually get 4850 kgs.
For the time, go up to the second set of PRESSURE ALTITUDE curves, then
across to the ISA ref line (at this point I am at 2.1 hrs).
Now adjust to ISA +15 .... and read the scale .... 2.050hrs, 2hrs 3mins.

Question 334:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.3. Given:
Distance to alternate 950 NM Head wind component 20 kt Mass at point of
diversion 50000kg Diversion fuel available 5800kg The minimum pressure
altitude at which the above conditions may be met is :
3312361.gif

A 24000ft
B 28000ft
C 18000ft
D 20000ft

Explanation: There are a number of questions like this .... normally use
of FIG 4.7.3 would involve you working through the chart from DISTANCE to
WIND to ALTITUDE to WEIGHT and arriving at the FUEL required.
For this question, the requirement is to find the ALTITUDE. To come up
with the answer you need to work normally through DISTANCE and WIND, and
then backwards through FUEL and WEIGHT.
Start at 950nm...to the WIND REF LINE...adjust for 20kt Head. Draw a line
straight up through the ALTITUDE section.
Now go to the FUEL scale 5800kg ...we need to work backwards ...
(backwards use of this ref lines needs you to go from 5800kg to the
500000kg condition, then adjust back to the reference line). Luckily in
this example, the weight condition of 50000kg is the ref line value,
hence there is no adjustment required - all we have to do is draw a line
from 5800kg straight through the ref line and through the altitude
section. Your 2 lines should meet at 25000ft.

Question 335:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.2. For the
purpose of planning an extended range flight it is required that with a
start of diversion mass of 55000kg a diversion of 600 nautical miles
should be achieved in 90 minutes. Using the above table, the only listed
cruise technique to meet that requirement is :
3312364.gif

A M/KIAS .74/330
B LRC
C M/KIAS .70/280
D M/KIAS .74/290

Explanation: NO

Question 336:
At reference or see Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.2. Using the
above table, in ISA conditions and at a speed of M.70/280KIAS, in an
elapsed time of 90 minutes an aircraft with mass at point of diversion
48000 kg could divert a distance of :
3312364.gif

A 584 NM
B 603 NM
C 608 NM
D 563 NM

Explanation: This is just a case of reading the table right and applying
a bit of interpolation.
Enter top row as this is the speed you're at, with a weight of 48000kg at
90 mins you're going to be between 590-580 nm.
Interpolation shows that at each 1000kg in weight is proportional to 2nm.
The answer spread is good enough to not have to interpolate in any depth.

Question 337:
Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.7.2. An aircraft on an extended
range operation is required never to be more than 120 minutes from an
alternate, based on 1 engine inoperative LRC conditions in ISA. Using the
above table and a given mass of 40000 kg at the most critical point, the
maximum air distance to the relevant alternate is :
3312364.gif

A 735 NM
B 875 NM
C 794 NM
D 810 NM

Explanation: NO

Question 338:
Flight Planning Manual MRJT 1 Figure 4.5.4. A descent is planned at
.74/250KIAS from 35000ft to 5000ft. How much fuel will be consumed during
this descent?
339706.gif

A 150kg
B 140kg
C 290kg
D 278kg

Explanation: For an enroute descent, you simply subtract the figures ...
35000ft - 290kgs
5000ft - 140kgs
So, the descent 35000ft to 5000ft .... fuel used 150kgs

Question 339:

B (58°N004°E) is
33004.gif

A 119°
B 118°
C 109°
D 099°

Explanation: You need to have plotted N62 W020 and N58 E004. Using the
NAP Chart 27th Edition and 8th Edition....our MEAN TRUE COURSE is 109T..
Apply variation 10W (a fraction over if anything) answer 119M.

C (62°N020°W) is
33004.gif

A 271°
B 279°
C 247°
D 259°

Explanation: The question asks for the AVERAGE MAGNETIC course ..... so
you must go to the mid point and measure.
At the mid point we get 260.5 TRUE .... apply variation 11W ... 271.5 M

Question 345:
Route Manual chart NAP. The average true course from A (64°N006°E) to C
(62°N020°W) is
33004.gif

C (62°N020°W) is
33004.gif

A 275°
B 271°
C 262°
D 267°

Explanation: Measuring track....plot the co-ordinates on the NAP (8th or


27th Edition)....
Now read the question (is it asking for mean or initial track, true or
magnetic)....assuming it is asking for mean....at the mid point on your
track measure the TRUE course using the appropriate TRUE NORTH grid. If
the question is asking for MAGNETIC, apply the variation given at the mid
point.

Question 347:
Route Manual chart NAP. The initial true course from A (64°N006°E) to C
(62°N020°W) is
33004.gif

A 271°
B 279°
C 259°
D 247°

Explanation: The question asks for the INITIAL true course - so plot the
2 points - carefully - and put your protractor on A (64°N006°E) .....
align with true north .... 271T Use either NAP chart - 8th or 27th
Edition - the answer is the same.

Question 348:

(58°N004°E) is
33004.gif

A 760
B 725
C 775
D 700

Explanation: Make sure you have the NORTH ATLANTIC PLOTTING CHART (27th
Edition or 8th Edition.
Plot the points correctly - and yes, be careful to plot 004E not W.
Measure, and then use the latitude scale for distance .... 60nm/degree.
You should get 760nm - on the nail.
This is an Exam favourite!

position 48°59'N, 008°35'E?
60-0198.gif

A VORDME
B NDB
C TACAN
D VOR

Explanation: This is a straightforward interpretation of the VORDME


symbol and you can refer to the legend on the front of the chart.

Question 351:
When flying on an airway on a heading of 255(M) the correct flight level
will be:

A usually EVEN
B usually ODD
C always ODD
D always EVEN

Explanation: The semicircular flight level „rules‟ would normally dictate


that Even Flight Levels would be flown on a track of 255°M but
occasionally ATC might state that Odd Flight Levels should be flown and
that could be shown on the En Route Charts as < O.

Question 352:
In areas where a vertical separation of 2000 ft has to be applied above
FL 290, which group of the following flight levels contains odd flight
levels only?

A FL 410, FL 330
B FL 430, FL 350
C FL 310, FL 370
D FL 330, FL 350

Explanation: Odd Flight Levels above FL290 are FL330, FL370, FL410 and
the Cruising Levels can be found on the front of the E(HI)4.

Question 353:
The approximately mean wind component (kt) along true course 180° at
015°W from 50°N to 40°N is:
60-0201.gif

A 20 kt tailwind
B 20 kt headwind
C 60 kt tailwind
D 60 kt headwind
Explanation: From the Wind Chart the mean wind covering 50N to 40N along
015W is 300/60kt. With a track of 180° there would be an effective
tailwind and the component would be approximately 20kt.

Question 354:
What is the earliest time (UTC), if any, that thunderstorms are forecast
for JOHANNESBURG/JAN SMUTS?
60-0236.gif

A 1300
B 1800
C 800
D nil

Explanation: The TEMPO 1318 indicates TSRA with TS being thunderstorms.

Question 355:
Given: Distance from departure to destination 285 NM True track 348 W/V
280/25 TAS 128 kt What is the distance of the PET from the departure
point?

A 153 NM
B 143 NM
C 123 NM
D 131 NM

Explanation: The wizzwheel gave me an outward groundspeed of 117 and a


homeward of 135.
Then PET = (tot.dist.x home g/s)/(out gs + home gs) = (285 x 135) / (117
+ 135) = 152.7 (i.e. 153)
Working looks good - two points to add:
- accurate wiz wheel work .... and if you start with TRACK, you MUST
apply DRIFT before you read G/S, I agree with G/S out=117kts, G/S home =
135 Kts
- PET formula ....Dist to PET = (D x H)/ (O + H) ... get the right
numbers in the right place!!

Question 356:
An aircraft flies at a TAS of 380 kt. It flies from A to B and back to A.
Distance AB = 480 NM. When going from A to B, it experiences a headwind
component = 60 kt. The wind remains constant. The duration of the flight
will be:

A 2h 35min
B 2h 10min
C 2h 32min
D 3h 00min

Explanation: When flying from A to B the aircraft experiences a headwind


component of 60kt
Our TAS is 380kt so our actual ground speed will be 320kt
So the distance from A to B is 480NM at 320kt this will take 90 minutes.
Since we experienced a headwind from A to B I will assume we will
experience a tail wind from B - A (it would be nice if the question
confirmed this)
Once again our TAS will be 380kt and if we include the tail wind (60kt)
our ground speed will be 440kt from B to A.
The distance remains 480NM and at a ground speed of 440kt this will take
65 minutes.
65 minutes + 90 minutes = 2 Hours and 35 minutes

Question 357:
During a VFR flight at a navigational checkpoint the remaining usable
fuel in tanks is 60 US gallons. The reserve fuel is 12 US gallons.
According to the flight plan the remaining flight time is 1h35min.
Calculate the highest acceptable rate of consumption possible for the
rest of the trip.

A 30.3 US gallons/hour
B 33.0 US gallons/hour
C 21.3 US gallons/hour
D 37.9 US gallons/hour

Explanation: The total fuel on the aircraft is 60 US gallons we require a


reserve of 12 US gallons so this only leaves us 48 US gallons to burn.
So the question asks what is the highest consumption rate we can use if
the trip is 1 hour and 35 minutes?
Using the CRP-5 set the black triangle under the first answer which is..
Answer A is 30.3US gallons per hour
In 1hour and 35 minutes this uses 48 US gallons which is a possible
answer.
Answer B is 33.0 US gallons per hour
This answer is no use
Answer C is 37.9 US gallons per hour
Higher than B so no!
Answer D is 21.3 US gallons per hour
This will use 39 US gallons
So A looks best using all the fuel

Question 358:
Excluding RVSM an appropriate flight level for IFR flight in accordance
with semi-circular height rules on a course of 180° (M) is:

A FL100
B FL90
C FL105
D FL95

Explanation: NO

Question 359:
Excluding RVSM an appropriate flight level for IFR flight in accordance
with semi-circular height rules on a magnetic course of 200° is:

A FL310
B FL290
C FL300
D FL320

Explanation: The question says "EXCLUDING RVSM' .... so we need to look


at the ICAO cruising levels schematic .... look on the front of the
E(HI)4/5 enroute chart - you will see two levels schematics ....
- the left hand one says 'below FL290' .... ODD and EVEN make sense.
- the right hand on says 'at or above FL290' .... here, ICAO rules change
- separation requirement between opposite traffic is now 2000ft, hence
separation between traffic in the same direction is now 4000ft. This
basically removes all the mathematically EVEN levels ... 300, 320, 340
etc, BUT convention still refers to ODD (290, 330, 370....) and EVEN
(310, 350, 390....) levels.
You don't have to remember the numbers - you can always refer to the
chart ...

Question 360:
Given: Distance from departure to destination 1100 NM True track 280 W/V
100/80 TAS 440 kt What is the distance time of the PET from the departure
point?

A Distance: 450 NM Time: 52 min


B Distance: 650 NM Time: 108 min
C Distance: 550 NM Time: 75 min
D Distance: 650 NM Time: 75 min

Explanation: Distance from departure point to PET = DH/O+H


D=1100, H=(440-80)=360, O= (440+80)=520
(1100x360)/(360+520) = 450nm
450nm at a GS of 520 means that Time = Dist/Speed = (450/520) = 0.865hrs
= 51.9 mins.

Question 363:
Given: Distance from departure to destination 150 NM True track 020 W/V
180/30 TAS 130 kt What is the distance of the PET from the departure
point?

A 59 NM
B 65 NM
C 75 NM
D 91 NM

Explanation: First of all use your WIZ wheel to calculate GS OUT and HOME
(DON'T forget you are starting with a TRACK, so before you read the GS
OUT and GS HOME, you need to apply the DRIFT)
For GS out:
- mark on the wind 180/30
- TAS 130 kt, TRACK 020 - drift 4° LEFT, so move 020 to 4° L (on top
scale)
- check drift - now closer to 5° - so move another 1° L
- now read GS = 157 kt
Similar procedure for GS Home = 102 kt
O = 157 kt, H = 102 kt
Distance to PET = (D x H) / (O + H) = (150 x 102) / 157 + 102) = 59 NM

Question 364:

200/15 TAS 132 kt What is the distance of the PET from the departure
point?

A 79 NM
B 71 NM
C 75 NM
D 134 NM

Explanation: From the WIZ WHEEL:


GS ON = 124kts
GS HOME = 140kts
So, DISTANCE to PET = DH/(O+H) = 150x140/(124+140) = 79.5nm

point?

A 98 NM
B 90 NM
C 92 NM
D 82 NM

Explanation: Classic PET .... LEMALLIN is absolutely right, for some of


these PET/PSR questions VERY accurate wiz wheel work is required ....
O=104 kts, H=123.5kts ....... which gives an answer of 97.7nm
Be careful - these are 4 point questions .... or 5% of the Exam!
Final thought - the best way to mark the wind is with a FINE soluble felt
tip pen - you get a very accurate 'dot' for the wind ....

from the departure point?

A 148 NM
B 95 NM
C 44 NM
D 73 NM

Explanation: Wiz wheel.... calculation of Ground Speed....


Mark on the WIND... 030/40 ... now set up TRACK 120°
BEFORE you read the GS you must apply the drift - 17° right. Now check
drift under wind 'mark.' It is now 18°, so apply another 1° right drift
... this is the correct solution, so read GS 123.5 kt
Go through the same for the GS HOME ... O = 123.5 kt ... so ...
Time to PSR = E x H / (O + H) = 2.4 x 123.5 / (123.5 + 123.5) = 1.200 hrs
Distance to PSR = Speed Out (O) x time = 123.5 x 1.200 = 148 NM

Question 396:
Given: Distance from departure to destination: 2000 NM Safe Endurance: 5
h TAS: 500 kt Ground Speed Out: 480 kt Ground Speed Home: 520 kt What is
the distance of the PSR from the departure point?

A 1248 NM
B 624 NM
C 752 NM
D 1040 NM

Explanation: For a PSR question, you use:


TIME TO PSR = (E x H)/(O + H)
If you then need the distance ... DISTANCE TO PSR = speed out x time = O
x time (which you calculate from the formula above)
For a PET question, you only use:
DISTANCE TO PET = (D x H)/(O + H)
If you then need the time ... TIME TO PET = DISTANCE (from formula) /
speed out

Question 397:
Given: Distance from departure to destination: 210nm. Safe Endurance:
2.5hrs. True Track: 035. W/V: 250/20. TAS: 105kt. What is the distance of
the PSR from the departure point?

A 127 NM
B 64 NM
C 172 NM
D 88 NM

Explanation: On the CRP5 low speed side put the wind in, 250/20kts with
the wind speed underneath the centre dot. Next put the centre dot under
the TAS 105kts. Rotate to read 035° under the true heading and you'll see
there is 5° right drift. Rotate 5 degrees to the right to read 030° under
the true heading and you'll read off a speed of 122kts. so your outbound
speed is 122kts. Next you need the speed of your return leg, 180 + 035 =
215°.
Put this under the true heading and you'll see 7° of left drift, so
rotate the cursor 7° towards to dot and you'll have 208° under the true
heading, and read of a speed of 91 kts. This is your homeward bound
speed. The question asks for PSR which is dependent on endurance so we
use this. In this case, 3.5 hrs. So from the formula E x H / O + H, I
get a time of 1.068 hrs. Multiply this by the outbound speed (122 kts)
and the distance is 130nm.

Question 410:
Given: Distance from departure to destination: 410 NM Safe Endurance: 3,6
h True Track: 055 W/V: 180/35 TAS: 120 kt What is the distance of the PSR
from the departure point?

A 203 NM
B 207 NM
C 169 NM
D 102 NM

Explanation: Dist = 410


End = 3.6 hrs
TR = 055(out) Home(235)
W/V = 180/35
Tas = 120kt
?Dist PSR? In my calculation for GS(o) = 136kt & GS(h) = 97
Time PSR = E*H/O+H = 3.6*97 / 136+97 = 349.2/233 = 1.498
Dist PSR = Time* GS(o) = 1.498*136 = 203.728 = 203nm
GS(out) > Dot under 120 , set in W/V, set 055 under HDG, this gives drift
12 left, now correct for this drift, this gives 14 left, apply for this
drift , which gives GS (o) 136kt
GS(home) > Now use 235 as your TRACK home, drift becomes 15 right, apply
this drift , this gives 12 right, correct to 12, this gives GS (h) 97kt
The distance given is the Distance from Departure to Destination..
The distance asked is the Distance of the PSR from departure point...
First you have to calculate the:
Time to PSR = E*H/O+H = ??hr
Now you can calculate:
Dist PSR from dep point = Time*GS(out) = ??nm
----------------------------------------------------
So if they ask for: Dist to PSR ?
1. Calculate Time to PSR first (using the Endurance) ,this gives: Time
2. Calculate the Dist PSR (using the Time) ,this gives: Dist
If they ask for: Time to PET (CP) ?
1. Calculate the Dist to PET first ,this gives: Dist
2. Calculate Time to PET = Dist/GS(out)

A 2222 NM
B 1111 NM
C 2500 NM
D 2778 NM

Explanation: E = 10 hr, O = 500 kt, H = 400 kt


Time to PSR = (E x H) / (O+H) = (10 x 400) / (500 + 400) = 4.444 hr
Distance to PSR = O x time = 500 x 4.444 = 2222 NM

Question 418:
Given: Fuel density = 0,78 kg/l Dry operating mass = 33500 kg Traffic
load = 10 600 kg Maximum allowable take-off mass = 66200 kg Taxi fuel =
200 kg Tank capacity = 22 500 Litres The maximum possible take-off fuel
is:

A 17 350 kg
B 21 900 kg
C 22 100 kg
D 17 550 kg

Explanation: You take your Max Capacity 22500, x by .78 which equals
17550, then minus your taxi fuel off which is 200, which should leave
17350.
You also need to check MTOM......DOM + TL + maximum fuel must be less
than MTOM
So, maximum allowable fuel must not exceed:
MTOM - DOM - TL
66200 - 33500 - 10600 = 22900kg
This is more than the tank capacity less taxy(as beech has
calculated)....so max fuel is within limits.

each associated with a mandatory flight Mach Number (M). The flight
conditions, static air temperature (SAT) and headwind component (HWC) are
given below: FL 370 - M = 0.80 Ts = -60°C HWC = -15 kt FL 330 - M = 0.78
Ts = -60°C HWC= - 5 kt FL 290 - M = 0.80 Ts = -55°C HWC = -15 kt FL 270 -
M = 0.76 Ts = -43°C HWC = 0 The flight level allowing the highest ground
speed is:

A FL270
B FL330
C FL370

Question 482:
Use Route Manual chart E(HI)2 An aircraft has to fly on airways from ODIN
(55º35'N 010º39'E) to BOTTNA (57º45'N 013º48'E). Which of the following
is an acceptable route for this flight?
33007.gif

A ODN UR156 SKA UH42 BTD


B ODN UR12 PER UG5 SHG UH42 BTD
C ODN UR12/UN872 HIL UV30 BTD
D ODN UR156 LAV D17 CINDY UR46 BTD

Explanation: One of the keys here is they specify "on airway" so you have
to make sure you stay on them and take no shortcuts.
The first one SHG is not on UH42, darn close but not on it so you would
not be on airways.
The second one LAV to Cindy is not an airway, again the wording.
The third one, there is no intersection/waypoint where 12 and 872 meet.
Also, 872 has a very large arrow pointing the opposite direction. One way
street.
This is a popular Exam question ...... and the 'normal' error is the
UH42/SHG bit .... UH42 does not go through SHG

Question 483:

Question 504:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Actual Ground Speed (GS) on the leg BETA to GAMMA will be 110
KT. If all other flight parameters remain unchanged, what fuel remaining
should be expected at waypoint GAMMA?
33145.gif

A 2000 kg
B 2310 kg
C 2062 kg
D 2160 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the current fuel flow for the aircraft by
using the fuel burn between ALPA and BETA. 2470 – 2330 x 60 = 420kg/hr

20mins
Distance for the next leg is 85nm at new Groundspeed of 110kt takes
46.4min
Therefore fuel used on leg BETA to GAMMA = 420kg/hr x 46.4min = 324.8kg

60
Fuel remaining at GAMMA will be 2330kg – 324.8kg = 2005.2kg

Question 505:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to
MIKE. The flight time for direct flight GAMMA to MIKE will be 45 min.

should be expected at waypoint MIKE?
33133.gif

A 1384kg
B 252 kg
C 2082 kg
D 1002 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between BETA and GAMMA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at GAMMA from that at BETA = 576kg. The
fuel flow can then be calculated by 576/24 x 60 = 1440kg/hr.
Time for flying direct from GAMMA to MIKE is 45 minutes so fuel used will
be
1440kg/hrx 45min = 1080kg
60
Fuel remaining at MIKE = 2464kg – 1080kg = 1384kg

Question 506:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to
MIKE. The flight time for direct flight GAMMA to MIKE will be 42 min.

B 670 kg
C 1195 kg
D 2245 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow from BETA to GAMMA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at GAMMA from that at BETA = 500kg. The
fuel flow can then be calculated by
500 x 60 = 1500kg/hr
20min
Time for flying direct from GAMMA to MIKE is 42 minutes so the fuel used
will be
1500kg/hr x 42min = 1050kg
60
Fuel remaining at MIKE = 2525kg – 1050kg = 1475kg

Question 507:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Actual Ground Speed (GS) on the leg BETA to GAMMA will be 115
KT. If all other flight parameters remain unchanged, what fuel remaining
should be expected at waypoint GAMMA?
33148.gif

A 2230 kg
B 2274 kg
C 2400 kg
D 2530 kg

Explanation: Fuel used from ALPA to BETA= 130kg so Fuel Flow = 130kg x 60
= 371.4kg/hr

21min

Time from BETA to GAMMA will be 110nm at 115kt = 57.5min


Therefore fuel burn from BETA to GAMMA = 371.4kg/hr x 57.4min = 355kg

60

Therefore fuel remaining at GAMMA = 2580kg – 355kg = 2225kg

Question 508:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to
MIKE. The flight time for direct flight GAMMA to MIKE will be 57 min.

C 1450 kg
D 2305 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between BETA and GAMMA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at GAMMA from that at BETA = 375kg.
The fuel flow can then be calculated by 375kg x 60 = 900kg/hr
25min
Time for flying direct from GAMMA to MIKE is 57 minutes so the fuel used
will be
900kg/hr x 57min = 855kg
60
Fuel remaining at MIKE = 2575kg – 855kg = 1720kg

Question 509:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to
MIKE. The flight time for direct flight GAMMA to MIKE will be 1h 08min.

B 582 kg
C 1250 kg
D 2338 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between BETA and GAMMA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at GAMMA from that at BETA = 400kg.
The fuel flow can then be calculated by 400kg x 60 = 960kg/hr
25min
Time for flying direct from GAMMA to MIKE is 68 minutes so the fuel used
will be
960kg/hr x 68min = 1088kg
60
Fuel remaining at MIKE = 2360kg – 1088kg = 1272kg

Question 510:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to

C 2644 kg
D 1720 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between BETA and GAMMA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at GAMMA from that at BETA = 490kg.
The fuel flow can then be calculated by 490kg x 60 = 840kg/hr
35min
Time for flying direct from GAMMA to MIKE is 66minutes so the fuel used
will be
840kg/hr x 66min = 924kg
60
Fuel remaining at MIKE = 2630kg – 924kg = 1706kg

Question 511:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to

should be expected at waypoint MIKE?
33132.gif

A 1900 kg
B 2652 kg
C 1268 kg
D 1852 kg
Explanation: Use the latest ACTUAL DATA (Beta - Gamma) to calculate FUEL
FLOW
Time (B-G) = 1:42 - 1:18 = 24 mins
Fuel (B-G) = 3180 - 2700 = 480 kg
FUEL FLOW B-G = (480 / 24) = 20 kg / min
FUEL USED G - M = FUEL FLOW x TIME = 20 x 40 = 800 kg
FUEL ON ARRIVAL AT M = 2700 - 800 = 1900 kg

Question 512:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Actual Ground Speed (GS) on the leg BETA to GAMMA will be 100
KT. If all other flight parameters remain unchanged, what fuel remaining
should be expected at waypoint GAMMA?
33146.gif

A 2600 kg
B 2770 kg
C 2684 kg
D 2820 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the current fuel flow for the aircraft by
using the fuel burnt between ALPHA and BETA = 100kg x 60 = 500kg/hr

12min
Distance between BETA and GAMMA is 60nm and the Groundspeed is 100kt so
the time taken will be 36min.
Fuel burn for the leg BETA to GAMMA will be 500kg/hr x 36min = 300kg

60
Fuel remaining at GAMMA = 2900kg – 300kg = 2600kg

Question 513:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Actual Ground Speed (GS) on the leg BETA to GAMMA will be 110
KT. If all other flight parameters remain unchanged, what fuel remaining
should be should be expected at waypoint GAMMA?
33147.gif

A 2625kg
B 2723 kg
C 2900 kg
D 2820 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between ALPHA and BETA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at BETA from that at ALPHA = 100kg.
The fuel flow can then be calculated by 100kg x 60 = 500kg/hr
12min
Time to fly from BETA to GAMMA is 32.7min (60nm @ 110kt) so the fuel used
will be 500kg/hr x 32.7min = 272.7kg

60
Fuel remaining at GAMMA = 2900kg – 272.7kg = 2627.3kg
Question 514:
At reference: Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log
excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to
MIKE. The flight time for direct flight GAMMA to MIKE will be 1h 10min.

B 2910 kg
C 380 kg
D 1510 kg

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between BETA and GAMMA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at GAMMA from that at BETA = 500kg.
The fuel flow can then be calculated by 500kg x 60 = 1200kg/hr
25min
Time to fly direct from GAMMA to MIKE is 70 minutes so the fuel used will
be
1200kg/hr x 70 = 1400kg
60
Fuel remaining at MIKE = 2700kg – 1400kg = 1300kg

Question 515:
Use TRM, Barcelona Area chart (10-1V). The maximum altitude that may be
used to transit the whole VFR corridor from REUS to SAN CELONI is:
33110.gif

A 2000 ft

Corridor then 2000ft in the correct answer.

Question 516:
At reference or Flight Planning Manual SEP1 Figure 2.2 Table 2.2.3 A
flight has to be made with the single engine sample aeroplane. For the
fuel calculation allow 10 lbs fuel for start up and taxi, 3 minutes and
10 lbs of additional fuel to allow for the climb, 10 minutes and no fuel
correction for the descent. Planned flight time (overhead to overhead) is
03 hours and 12 minutes. Reserve fuel 30% of the trip fuel. Power setting
is 23 in.HG (or full throttle), 2300 RPM, 20°C lean. Flight level is 70
and OAT is ISA + 20°C. The minimum block fuel is:

A 325 lbs
B 289 lbs
C 306 lbs
D 349 lbs

Explanation: This is an awkward question – we haven‟t seen it yet in the


UK, but it certainly has appeared in other countries.
We might see it here in UK sometime soon –
Cruise overhead to overhead 3hrs 12mins
Fuel flow: 23 in.HG (or full throttle), 2300 RPM, 20°C lean. FL70 ISA
+20°C 68.75PPH (CAP 697 section 2 page 6)
So,
TRIP FUEL = 3hrs 12mins + climb correction + descent correction
= 3hrs 12mins + (3mins + 10 lbs) + (10mins) = 3hrs
25mins +10lbs
= (3.417 x 68.75) + 10 = 245lbs
BLOCK FUEL = Start up + Trip + Reserve = 10 + 245 + (30% x 245) = 328lbs

Question 517:

Explanation: Firstly work out the fuel flow between ALPHA and BETA by
subtracting the fuel remaining at BETA from that at ALPHA = 160kg.
The fuel flow can then be calculated by 160kg x 60 = 533.3kg/hr
18min
Time to fly from BETA to GAMMA is 40.8min (68nm @ 100kt) so the fuel used
will be
533.3kg/hr x 40.8min = 362.6kg
60
Fuel remaining at GAMMA = 3310kg – 362.6kg = 2947.4kg

flight Level above FL400 that can be flown on this leg on an IFR flight
Plan?
33006.gif

A FL430
B FL400
C FL420
D FL410

Explanation: TALLA to FINDO: Magnetic track is 002°M so conventional


thinking would tell you that you require an ODD level. BUT, on this
section of airway there is an “E>” this overrides track convention and
tells us we need an EVEN level.
The question also states "EXCLUDING RVSM" so therefore refer to the
levels schematic on your chart (actually in the middle of the E(HI)2)
and select a level, look at the right hand circle (at or above FL 290),
and select from the EVEN side ... 310, 350, 390 ... etc ... 430, 470,
510.
SO, answer FL 430
