If being radar vectored to the final approach course of a published instrument approach that specifies "No PT" the pilot should
not execute the procedure turn unless specifically cleared to do so by ATC.
When the approach procedure involves a procedure turn the maximum speed that should be observed from first overheading the course reversal IAF through the procedure turn is
200 knots IAS
What Minimum ground visibility may be used instead of a prescribed visibility criteria of RVR 16 when that RVR value is not reported?
1/4 SM
The prescribed visibility criteria of RVR 32 for the runway of intended operation is not reported.  What minimum ground visibility may be used instead of the RVR value?
5/8 SM
The visibility criteria for a particular instrument approach provcedure is RVR 40.  What minimum ground visibility may be substituted for the RVR value?
3/4 SM
Under which condition, if any, may a pilot descend below DH or MDA when using the ALSF-1 approach light system as the primary visual reference for the intended runway?
The approach light system can be used as a visual reference, except that descent below 100 feet above TDZE requires that the red light bars be visible and identifiable.
When must the pilot initiate a missed approach procedure from an ILS approach?
At the DA/DH, if the visual references for the intended runway are not distincltly visible or anytime thereafter that visual reference is lost.
Assuming that all ILS components are operating and the required visual references are not acquired, the missed approach should be initiated upon
arrival at the DH on the glide slope.
When may a pilot execute a missed approach during an ASR approach?
Anytime at the pilot's discretion.
If visual reference is lost while circling to land from an instrument approach, what action(s) should the pilot take?
Make a climbing turn toward the landing runway until established on the missed approach course.
Precision Runway Monitoring (PRM) is
a RADAR system for monitoring approaches to closely spaced parallel runways.
How can the pilot determine, for an ILS runway equipped with MALSR, that there may be penetration of the obstacle identification surfaces (OIS), and care should be taken in the visual segment to avoid any obstacles?
The published visibility for the ILS is no lower than 3/4 SM.
To conduct a localizer performance with vertical guidance (LPV) RNAV (GPS) approach, the aircraft must be furnished with
a GPS/WAAS receiver approved for an LPV approach by the AFM supplement.
Pilots are not authorized to fly a published RNAV or RNP procedure unless it is retrievable by the procedure name from
the aircraft navigation database.
Under what conditions may an air carrier pilot continue an instrument approach to the DH, after receiving a weather report indicating that less then minimum published landing conditions exist at the airport?
When the weather report is received after the pilot has begun the final approach segment of the instrument approach.
Except during an emergency, when can a pilot expect landing priority?
In turn, on a first-come, first-served basis.
What action is expected of an aircraft upon landing at a controlled airport?
Exit the runway at the nearest suitable taxiway and remain on tower frequency until instructed otherwise.
When is radar service terminated while vectored for an IFR approach at an uncontrolled airport?
Only upon landing or advised to change to advisory frequency.
When cleared from an IFR approach to an uncontrolled airport with no FSS, what precaution should the pilot take after being advised to change to advisory frequency?
Broadcast position and intentions on the Common Trafic Advisory Frequiency and monitor the frequency.
How should a pilot describe braking action?
Nil, poor, fair, or good.
What report should the pilot make at a clearance limit?
Time and altitude/flight level arriving or leaving.
Where are position reports required on an IFR flight on airways or routes?
Over all designated compulsory reporting points.
Which reports are required when operating in radar environment?

1.  Vacating an altitude
2.  Unable to climb 500 ft/min
3.  time and altitude reaching a holding fix or point to which cleared
4.  a change in average true airspeed exceeding 5 percent or 10 knots
5.  leaving any assigned holding fix or point.
Which reports are always required when on an IFR approach not in radar contact?
1.  Leaving FAF inbound or outer marker inbound

2.  Missed Approach
What action should a pilot take if asked by ARTCC to "VERIFY 9,000" and the flight is actually maintaining 8,000?
Report maintaining 8,000
Pilots should notify controllers on initial contact that they have received the ATIS broadcast by
repeating the alphabetical code word appended to the broadcast.
Below what altitude, except when in cruise flight, are non-saftey related cockpit activities by flight crewmembers prohibited?
10,000 feet
With regard to flight crewmember duties, which of the following operations are considered to be in the "critical phase of flight"?
Taxi, takeoff, landing, and all other operations conducted below 10,000 feet, excluding cruise flight.
When a speed adjustment is necessary to maintain separation, what minimum speed may ATC request of a turbine-powered aircraft operating below 10,000 feet?
210 knots
When a speed adjustment is necessary to maintain separation, what minimum speed may ATC requiest of a turbine-powered aircraft departing an airport?
230 knots
If ATC requests a speed adjustment that is not within the operating limits of the aircraft, what action must the pilot take?
Advise ATC of the airspeed that will be used.
What action should a pilot take if within 3 minutes of a clearance limit and further clearance has not been received?
Start a speed reduction to holding speed in preparation for holding.
The maximum speed a propeller-driven airplane may hold at is
265 knots


230 knots
Maximum holding speed for a turbojet airplane above 14,000 feet is
265 knots
Maximum holding speed for a civil turbojet aircraft at a joint use airport (civil/Navy) between 7,000 and 14,000 feet is
230 knots
What is the maximum holding speed for a civil turbojet holding at a civil airport at 15,000 feet MSL, unless a higher speed is required due to turbulence or icing and ATC is notified?
265 knots
Civil aircraft holding at an altitude of 14,000 feet at a military or joint civil/military use airports should expect to operate at which holding pattern airspeed?
230 knots
When using a flight director system, what rate of turn or bank angle should a pilot observe during turns in a holding pattern?
3° per second or 25° bank, whichever is less.
When holding at an NDB, at what point should the timing begin for the second leg outbound?
When abeam the holding fix.
When entering a holding patter above 14,000 feet, the initial outbound leg should not exceed.
1-1/2 minutes
