| What is the correct call sign of Fastair 345 in the initial call to the aerodrome control tower and the approach control unit, if the aircraft has a maximum take- off weight of more than 136 tonnes:
a) Fastair 345
b) Heavy Fastair 345
c) Fastair heavy 345
d) Fastair 345 widebody
c) marked correct. There's a typo here. The correct option is "Fastair 345 Heavy".
The correct phraseology to instruct an aircraft to cease the MODE C SSR reply because of incorrect indications is:
a) Climbing to two point five
b) Up to two thousand five hundred
c) Climbing to two thousand five hundred feet
d) Climbing to two thousand five hundred
b) marked correct. Seems some serious typo here.
Within the European Region, an aircraft experiencing radio communication failure on an IFR departure has to squawk 7600 and:
a) Climb immediately to the cruising level indicated in the flight plan
b) Maintain the level last assigned by the ATC for a period of 3 minutes and then climb in accordance with the flight plan
c) Land at the departure aerodrome in any case
d) Maintain the altitude last assigned by ATC for a period of 5 minutes and then continue in accordance with the flight plan
b) marked correct. Typo here as it is 7 minutes not 3.
Which Q-code is used to report altitude?
d) marked correct whereas (a) is correct. A Typo here as well. Its the only one with option QNJ in it.
On the readability scale what does READABILITY 2 mean:
a) Readable but with difficulty
b) No problem to understand
c) Loud and clear
a) marked correct. Though READABILITY 2 = Readable now and then whereas READABILITY 3 = Readable but with difficulty. Since all options except (a) are absolutely wrong, (a) is the best choice available.
