    OPS - Training for LVO

    This question that came up followed pretty much question 711530 in the question bank, but if my memory serves me well they added 'rollout' here and there. As in the correct answer below would read 'taxiing, take off, approach, landing, flare, rollout, missed approach'. If I'm interpreting correctly...

  • OPS - offsetting over 10 NM in order to avoid storm

    An airliner is crossing the North Atlantic Westbound and deviates 15 NM left in order to avoid a storm, without having managed to get the appropriate ATC clearance. In that case they should:

    - Climb 300 ft
    - Descend 300 ft
    - Climb or Descend 500 ft
    - Can't remember...

    OPS - Safety Manager tasks

    This was a simple one if one has memorised this bit! Question asked you to pick two tasks out of something like five that were appropriate for a Safety Manager.
    Being a focal point and preparing periodic reviews were there, I think. Also things like 'making sure appropiate resources are allocated...

    OPS - Storm ahead

    An airliner is flying between the Tropics and there's a massive storm ahead too wide to go around. The captain decides to go through. Four options are given:

    - Try to climb over the storm
    - Fly faster in order to reduce time in cloud.
    - A very dodgy sounding option involving...

  • OPS - Operations Manual, where to go for Xwinds and Contaminated Runways

    This question was simply which part of the Operations Manual to go to for info on permissible crosswinds when having various types of contaminated runway.

    I imagine it just boils down to whether this is type-dependent or generic info. I thought it would be aircraft type-dependent and that's...

  • OPS - Low Visibility for surface movement and take offs

    I've seen this one a lot in the pdfs doing the rounds, but I'm leaving it here so someone can please confirm for everybody what the right answer is.

    a. RVR <800 for surface movement...

    OPS - over 27,000 kg

    I've found this one elsewhere, but the one I had in my last sitting sounded pretty much like this. I remembered the Maintenance Programme bit, but it was never on its own: always together with some other concepts as below (Data Monitoring etc). Perhaps someone can confirm which things can also go with...

    Another question that showed up again in my second sitting. I think I'm right when I remember the temperature value having dropped from 3 deg C to 1 deg C this time round. Maybe they wanted to make it clearer that there was genuine danger of icing?
    I don't recall an option with checks being given,...

    Something like this showed up again in my last sitting. From memory:

    In a non-complex organisation, who can be (I think it was Safety Manager!) out of the following (pick two). Note: these people have only one job (or words to that effect).

    Accountable Manager...

    This question showed up again in my second sitting. Please have a look under Feedback - I've added a thread titled

    SID Profile - fpm required

    A question that threw me off at first and I found in my two sittings (PERFORMANCE (A)):

    A climbing profile from a given SID is described: (a) a gradient of 6.1% is to be maintained until reaching 1800 ft AGL; (b) another value x% is to be maintained thereafter until FLYY is reached....

    My bad, I had it a bit muddled up in my head. Can it be said of any of these that they are 'fixed in space and they can be used both ways'?

    Spruce Routes

    One more question, please. I remember a question on Spruce Routes T9 T13 where two of the options sounded fairly sensible to me:
    -They are fixed in space and they go both ways
    -They go N to S

    Have you had any feedback on this? What would be your preference? I think I picked...

    Hello again. Just in case I'm scaring/confusing someone with my vague recollection, I think the question type might have been 320385, which I hadn't revised enough.

    Oh, I just heard myself: you do it with gross gradient because that way the mass limitation is *more conservative*, right?

    Gross and Net climbing perf

    Hi again. This one is about question type like 320262 in the question bank. The process is clear enough but I'm a bit worried about the gradient values.
    They apparently do provide the gross gradient (2.7%), which one should remember anyway. But when doing the calc to obtain max TO mass shouldn't...

    Question about climbing

    Hello. I apologise as this is an incredibly vague question, but just in case it reminds you of some well-known question type.

    Sitting Perf last September I remember one question about climbing performance that *looked* a bit like the ones where you have to consider one engine failure after...

    Safety managers

    Hi again. I've got a few from the pdfs doing the rounds. This one I'd like to confirm whenever they ask about people in charge *having only one job* we should go for 'managers'. Does that sound reasonable?
