(Refer to figures 45 and 46.) Approximately how much baggage, if any, may be carried in the gyroplane, without exceeding weight and balance limits?
||Oil, 6 qt
A) None, overweight.
B) 70 pounds.
C) 100 pounds.
Which is a result of the phenomenon of ground effect?
A) The induced angle of attack of each rotor blade is increased.
B) The lift vector becomes more horizontal.
C) The angle of attack generating lift is increased.
(Refer to figure 47.) What is the best rate-of-climb speed for the helicopter?
A) 24 MPH.
B) 40 MPH.
C) 57 MPH.
The principal reason the shaded area of a Height vs. Velocity Chart should be avoided is
A) turbulence near the surface can dephase the blade dampers.
B) rotor RPM may decay before ground contact is made if an engine failure should occur.
C) insufficient airspeed would be available to ensure a safe landing in case of an engine failure.
Before beginning a confined area or pinnacle landing, the pilot should first
A) execute a high reconnaissance.
B) execute a low reconnaissance.
C) fly around the area to discover areas of turbulence.
(Refer to figure 47.) Which airspeed/altitude combination should be avoided during helicopter operations?
A) 20 MPH/200 feet AGL.
B) 35 MPH/175 feet AGL.
C) 40 MPH/75 feet AGL.
Under what condition should a helicopter pilot consider using a running takeoff?
A) When gross weight or density altitude prevents a sustained hover at normal hovering altitude.
B) When a normal climb speed is assured between 10 and 20 feet.
C) When the additional airspeed can be quickly converted to altitude.
Under what conditions, if any, may a private pilot operate a helicopter under special VFR at night within Class D airspace?
A) The helicopter must be fully instrument equipped and the pilot must be instrument rated.
B) The flight visibility must be at least 1 mile.
C) There are no conditions; regulations permit this.
If an airship should experience failure of both engines during flight and neither engine can be restarted, what initial immediate action must the pilot take?
A) The airship must be driven down to a landing before control and envelope shape are lost.
B) The emergency auxiliary power unit must be started for electrical power to the airscoop blowers so that ballonet inflation can be maintained.
C) Immediate preparations to operate the airship as a free balloon are necessary.
An airship descending through a steep temperature inversion will
A) show no change in superheat as altitude is lost.
B) show a decrease in superheat as altitude is lost.
C) become progressively lighter, thus becoming increasingly more difficult to drive down.
