Is it Christmas eve when you are flying? Are you heading straight toward santa?! 😂😂😂
Good job guys most of you got this one. Sorry for the late answer yesterday was nuts.
Whew. I actually got one right :)
Keep these coming. I’m sure many people here are learning through these questions.
I’ll keep doing them last night was just nuts so I didn’t have time to prepare one for today.
1/20/18 Question of the day
You are approaching a Uncontrolled airfield. When tuning into the frequency do you first?
- (A) Announce inbound
- (B) Request traffic advisories
- © Send traffic advisories
- (D) Listen for active traffic
Sorry for the delay everyone it was a crazy week.
Shouldn’t you let other pilots in the area know your intentions, before all else?
I don’t know should you?
Uuuuuuhhhhhhh… Sticking with my gut on this one!
Appreciate ya doing this Brandon. Should be required reading.
Oh it’s getting close
Here is today’s answer great job to those who got it. For those that didn’t feel free to ask questions.
Next question posts at 0000Z.
Good idea to listen first, but failing to hear any traffic on the channel, requesting traffic advisories is a double check of both TX and RX of the system. Announcing inbound is TX in the blind, never a optimum situation. So…I take a zero for today, but I will always request the advisory even after listening. Appreciate ya!
1/21/18 Question of the day
You have just arrived at the hold short. An aircraft has just announced he’s on final at 5NM. Can you Takeoff?
- (A) Yes
- (B) No
Depends on the aircraft in the scenario.
- Cessna 172 on 5nm final and a B737 holding short, then yeah, I’d take off. 😉
Were it the other way around, it could be cutting it close.
In a 172 you would have time to get dressed.
If there’s a 172 on final, I’m definitely going for it, even if I’m in an A388. I think I’m gonna sit this one out, a good lawyer (and a bad one) can argue for both answers.
Seems like an open-ended question. Yeah, you can take off, but have you been instructed to do so?
Reguardless of Type the answer is the same.
We are at an uncontrolled field.
