Airman Knowledge Test Question Bank file:///T|/AFSMigration/training_testing/testing/airmen/test_questions/media/IRA.htm[2/14/2011 3:34:58 PM] 01/31/2011 Bank: (Instrument Rating) Airman Knowledge Test Question Bank The FAA computer-assisted testing system is supported by a series of supplement publications. These publications, available through several aviation publishers, include the graphics, legends, and maps that are needed to successfully respond to certain test items. Use the following URL to download a complete list of associated supplement books: http://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/airmen/test_questions/ The Learning Statement Reference Guide for Airman Knowledge Testing contains listings of learning statements with their associated codes. It can be located at: http://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/airmen/media/LearningStatementReferenceGuide.pdf 1. PLT036 IRA What information does a Mach meter present? A) The ratio of aircraft true airspeed to the speed of sound. B) The ratio of aircraft indicated airspeed to the speed of sound. C) The ratio of aircraft equivalent airspeed, corrected for installation error, to the speed of sound. 2. PLT337 IRA If while in level flight, it becomes necessary to use an alternate source of static pressure vented inside the airplane, which of the following variations in instrument indications should the pilot expect? A) The altimeter will read lower than normal, airspeed lower than normal, and the VSI will momentarily show a descent. B) The altimeter will read higher than normal, airspeed greater than normal, and the VSI will momentarily show a climb. C) The altimeter will read lower than normal, airspeed greater than normal, and the VSI will momentarily show a climb and then a descent. 3. PLT406 IRA A pilot is making an ILS approach and is past the OM to a runway which has a VASI. What action should the pilot take 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. 4. PLT132 IRA When an aircraft is accelerated, some attitude indicators will precess and incorrectly indicate a A) climb. B) descent. C) right turn. 5. PLT185 IRA If a half standard-rate turn is maintained, how long will it take to turn 360°? A) 1 minute. B) 2 minutes. C) 4 minutes. 6. PLT430 IRA Unless otherwise prescribed, what is the rule regarding altitude and course to be maintained during an IFR off airways flight over mountainous terrain?
