  • I expect you will be credited with the marks for the LMC question as you are not required to remember passenger masses. We had at least 20 students receive credits for this question in the November exams.
    Well done on your excellent result.

  • The question appeared in the Dutch exams and we got the student to appeal it through them. This was the response. Haven't heard anything since.
    [FONT=&quot][COLOR=#000000][I]The Dutch CAA forwarded the appeal to EASA and they said they would (most likely) quarantine the question until EAS...

  • I cover this at the brush up. For now I'll just deal with the jet.
    I should have said for range it's nm/kg and for endurance it's kg/hr
    There are two elements to consider for range flying, the airframe and the engine so we need to look at two formula and then combine them.
    SAR = TAS/FF...

    replied to Load Factor in climb
    The simple answer is yes.
    We can calculate it by using trigonometry.
    From the forces in the climb diagram the force that opposes lift is WCOSTHETA where THETA is the angle of climb (it would be more correct to call this GAMMA)
    Let's say we had a 20 percent climb gradient and we need...

    replied to Best drift-down velocity
    Hi
    One is describing the driftdown with power/thrust available and the other is describing the glide descent with no power/no thrust available, we do this one at VMD for jet and prop whereas for the driftdown we use VMD for a jet and 1.1VS for a prop.

    replied to How to start an APU
    This from my 747 manual:
    APU Bleed Air Switch -Closed
    APU Fire Warning System- Test
    APU Master Switch - On (this opens the APU door, opens APU fuel valve and starts the fuel pump)
    APU Master switch to START. (This is an electric starter motor fed from the APU battery)

    replied to Exam question
    Have a look at the example in CAP698 section 3 page 12.
    The engine is assumed to fail when the aircraft enters cloud.
    The height change is from reference zero to the cloudbase. with AEO
    Then from 300ft to 1500 ft with OEI.

    Time to CB with full power = 250/1000 x 60 = 15...
