Question Of The Day!

Recommended Posts

Chosen at random from a 10,000 question data base, answers posted 24 hrs later.

 

A gaseous sensor/responder tube fire sensor is tested by:

 

a. Checking the sensor with pressurized gas

b. Heating up the sensor with test power connection

c. Checking the continuity of the system with test switch

d. Checking the wiring harness for faults but not the sensor

 

Choose the most correct answer.

 

2. A pilot wishes to turn left on to a northerly heading with 10° bank at a latitude of 50° North. Using a direct reading compass, in order to achieve this he must stop the turn on an approximate heading of:

 

a.330 degrees

b.355 degrees

c.015 degrees

d.030 degrees

 

Choose the most correct answer.

What did your CP give you some homework P5, and you cannot figure out the answer(s), and are hoping that someone else will do it for you :prop:

This low timer digs stuff like this! B)

 

If I'm not flying, the least I can do is hit the books. The first one has me bamboozled (I've only flown Robinsons), but I have a pretty good idea on the second. However, I am in the midst of reviewing compass errors before I post my answer.

 

I've got some flight manuals downloaded on my computer - I'll dig around those and see if I can find the first answer. Keep them questions coming...

A gaseous sensor/responder tube fire sensor is tested by:

 

a. Checking the sensor with pressurized gas

b. Heating up the sensor with test power connection

c. Checking the continuity of the system with test switch

d. Checking the wiring harness for faults but not the sensor

 

Explanation:

 

These type of sensors work on the principal that increase in tempurature allows for a decrease in resistance. Hence the test is calibrating the decrease in resistance as such.

 

Choose the most correct answer.

1.When an inertial platform system is operating on board an aircraft, it is necessary to use a device with the following characteristics, in order to keep the vertical line with a pendulous system:

 

Here are your choices.

 

1. With damping and a period of 84 minutes

2. Without damping and a period of about 85 seconds

3. Without damping and a period of about 84 minutes

4. With damping and a period of 84 seconds

5. With damping and a period of about 84 minutes

Got any relevant questions?

 

Like....

 

What way will the aircraft crab in the hills if you are contouring on the upslope side?

 

or

 

What are the different types of approved JetRanger auto-relights, how do you test them and how are they activated?

 

My apologies if some people (engineers?) found the earlier questions relevant...I did not.

Didn't post my responses in time, but I did get the second one right, and made a lucky guess on the first. :D

:huh: Gonna have to research that one...

 

 

What way will the aircraft crab in the hills if you are contouring on the upslope side?

 

In up-flowing air the aircraft's nose should want to crab away from the slope, no?

 

 

What are the different types of approved JetRanger auto-relights, how do you test them and how are they activated?

 

Off to scour the Bell manuals in my download folder.

 

Good stuff. Keep 'em coming :up:

The questions are part of the JAR ATPL material. I find some not relevant either, as it goes I'll mix em up- just picking at randon. I'll try to balance between all 12 subjects.

 

I find looking at a question a day keeps my old brain active.

 

Cheers
