1. A pilot is making an ILS approach and is past the OM to a runway which has a VASI. What action is appropriate if an electronic glide slope malfunction occurs and the pilot has the VASI in sight?

a. The pilot should inform ATC of the malfunction and then descend immediately to the localizer DH and make a localizer approach.

b. The pilot may continue the approach and use the VASI glide slope in place of the electronic glide slope.

c. The pilot must request an LOC approach, and may descend below the VASI at the pilot’s discretion.

d. The pilot should return to the IAF and hold.


2. Which procedure should be followed by a pilot who is circling to land in a Category B airplane, but is maintaining a speed that is 5 kts faster than the maximum specified for that category?

a. The pilot should use the approach minimums appropriate for Category C aircraft.

b. The pilot should slow the aircraft to a speed that is within Category B specifications.

c. The pilot should deploy gear and 20-degrees of flaps.


3. Assume this clearance is received: “CLEARED FOR ILS RUNWAY 07 LEFT APPROACH, SIDE-STEP TO RUNWAY 07 Right.” When would the pilot be expected to commence the side-step maneuver?

a. Upon passing the Outer Marker [OM].

b. When the approach is established.

c. As soon as possible after the runway environment is in sight.

d. At the Final Approach Fix [FAF].


4. Which of these instruments do you NOT need for an IFR flight?

a. Engine oil pressure gauge

b. Magnetic compass

c. Fuel gauge for each tank

d. Vertical Speed Indicator

e. Slip-skid indicator

f. Directional gyro


5. Assume you are making a flight carrying passengers, and official sunset will occur at 1900 local time. If you do not meet the recent flight experience requirements for night flight, you must be on the ground no later than:

a. 1900

b. 1930

c. 2000

d. 2030


6. What are the alternate minimums for an airport with a precision approach procedure? 

a. 400’ ceiling and 2 miles visibility.

b. 600’ ceiling and 2 miles visibility.

c. 800’ ceiling and 2 miles visibility.

d. 1,000’ ceiling and 1 mile visibility
