  2. You are on an approach and have just reached the MDA. You are still able to descend to the runway using normal rates of descent. The flight visibility is greater than prescribed on the approach procedure. However, the only visual reference you have in sight is the VASI.  Is it legal to descend below the MDA?

  4. If you found it necessary to cross a VFR Military Training Route described on your chart as “VR1207,” at what altitude (AGL) would you be safely separated from the military training exercises?

  5. What is the minimum safe altitude over any congested area of a city or an open assembly of persons?

  6. You are picking up ice. You estimate that you can continue the flight for one hour without de-ice equipment. What intensity of icing would you report in a PIREP?


    1. False. You may re-establish instrument currency only by obtaining an IPC after October 1, 2020. 2. Yes, per FAR 91.175(c)(3). 3. False. No turns are to be made below 400 ft. AGL. 4.
