These study guide questions were submitted by real pilots who actually interviewed with Air Transport International
On an IFR flight in VFR who is responsible for separation, you or ATC? You.
When is a report to ATC required? Leaving assigned altitude, Entering or leaving a holding, Missed approach, Any unforecast weather, Change of airspeed grater than 10 knots or 5 %. Any issue affecting the safety of flight.
What is an LDA? a precision approach that is offset from the runway, it may have GS
What are you looking for in an employer/airline? I want to be part of a team that functions like a family. This type of team would allow me to spend the last 15 years of my career there. I like that I can master and fly just 1 aircraft type for the rest of my flying career.
What is the correlation between temp and lighting strikes? The number of lighting strikes will increase with an increase in temperature.
What is the effect of aft cg on performance? rearward Cg gives better fuel efficiency
What is Mach Tuck? Maximum speed at which air can travel over the wings without losing lift due to flow separation and shock waves
What factors used in calculating performance? Temp., Humidity, Power Available, Runway condition and slope, Altitude.
What is critical mach? The lowest Mach number at which the airflow over some point of the aircraft reaches the speed of sound, but does not exceed it.
How did you get into flying? Started flying for fun.
