FAA written:

If a plane is travelling south with a wind from 004 at 14 kts what is the light signal if the cumulus clouds in the dissipating stage of a thunderstorm are tuned to the CTAF of 122.9 and the time enroute is calculated on a true airspeed of 14 knots when referring to figure 26 while calculating the landing roll using figure 23 at an angle of attack with a load factor of 45 degrees ...if the crosswind component is 13 knots what traffic should be made on runway 36 in figure 12 when the density altitude is (consult figure 15) in a crosswind from the eat while the throttle is at a setting of 65% when the altitude is 500 feet at standard temperature when flying at night in class C airspace while the transponder code is 7700 and the altimeter is set for 29.83 and the temperature is -9C and the density altitude is 5243 with an airspeed of 8 and a headwind of 17.

I got this.



ETA: took 40 minutes to do. I was done in 30, and went back and checked 'cause I had all that time....

I second guessed myself on one problem, and got it wrong the second time, and flat out didn't know two others.

so, a 95%.

I'm happy. And I know where to study for the ones I missed.

Yes, you do. Good luck and go get it done.

Anyone can take-off and land an airplane (eventually). It's all that background knowledge that makes a pilot a pilot. Knowing what all the reports are, regulations that are in place, terms and data from the POH, and applying all that knowledge to your flying is the difficult. Knowing HOW to apply those facts and figures is the fun(?) part.

Typical government; make everything, including sentences, bigger than they need to be, and almost impossible to understand...

Pete: It's a knowledge test. and anyone who has studied for the Private Pilot Exam understands. (or likely any exam, really)
