While operating in class D airspace, each pilot of an aircraft approaching to land on a runway served by a visual approach slope indicator(VASI) shall
maintain an altitude at or above the glide slope until a lower altitude is necessary for a safe landing (4-33)
When approaching to land on a runway served by a visual slope approach indicator (VASI), the pilot shall
Maintan an altitude at or above the glide slope (4-33)
Airport taxiway edge lights are identified at night by
blue omnidirectional lights (4-35)
A slightly high glide slope indication from a prcision approach path indicator is
three white lights and one red light (4-34)
An airport's rotating beacon operated during daylight hours indicates
That weather located at the airport located in class D airspace is below basic VFR weather minimums (4-31)
A military air station can be identified by a rotating beacon that emits
Dual peaked (two quick) white flashes between green flashes (4-32)
(refer to figure 49 on page 4-13) That portion of the runway identified by the letter A may be used for
taxiing and takeoff. (4-24)
(refer to figure 49 on page 4-13) According to the airport diagram, which statement is true?
A- Runway 30 is equipped at position E with emergency arresting gear to provide a means of stopping military aircraft.

B-Takeoffs may be started from position A on runway 12, and the landing portion of this runway begins at position B.

C- The takeoff and landing portion of runway 12 begins at position B.
Refer to figure 49 on page (4-13)
What is the difference between area A and area B on the airport depicted?
"A" may be used for taxi and takeoff, "E" may be used only as overrun. (4-24)
(Refer to figure 49 on page 4-13)
Area C on the airport depicted is classified as a
Closed runway (4-25)
Refer to figure 50)
The arrows that appear on the end of the north /south runway indicate that the area
cannot be used for landing, but may be used for taxiing and takeoff (4-24)
The number 9 and 27 on a runway indicate that the runway is oriented approximately
090 degrees and 270 degrees magnetic (4-17)
(refer to figure 50)
select the proper traffic pattern and runway for landing
Right hand traffic and runway 18 (4-17)
(Refer to figure 50)
Select the proper traffic pattern and runway for landing
Right hand traffic runway 18 (4-20)
Fig 50
If the wind is shown by the landing direction indicator, the pilot should land on
Runway 18 and expect a crosswind from the right (4-20)
(fig 51)
The segmented circle indicates that the airport traffic is
left hand for runway 36 and right hand for runway 18 (4-21)
(fig 51)
The traffic patterns indicated in the segmented circle have been arranged to avoid flights over the area to the
Southeast (4-21,AIM)
(fig 51)
The segmented circle indicated that a lading on runway 26 will be with a
right quartering headwind (4-21,AIM)
(fig 51)
Which runway and traffic pattern should be used as indicated by the wind cone in the segmented circle?
Left hand traffic on runway 36. (4-21,AIM)
Who should not participate in land and hold short operations (LAHSO)?
Student pilots. (4-30,AIM)
Who has final authority to accept or decline any (LAHSO) clearance?
Pilot in command (4-30)
When should pilots decline a land and hold short (LAHSO) clearance?
When it will compromise safety.(4-30,AIM)
Where is the "Available Landing Distance" (ALD) data published for an airport that utilizes Land and Hold Short (LAHSO) published?
Special Notices section of the Airport Facility Directory (A/FD). (4-30,AIM)
What is the minimum visability for a puilot to recieve a land and hold short (LAHS0) clearance?
3 Statute miles (AIM)
When approaching taxiway holding lines from the side with continous lines, the pilot
should not cross the lines without ATC clearance. (4-26)
The numbers 8 and 26 on the approach ends of the runway indicate that the runway is oriented approximately
080 and 260 magnetic (4-17)
The reccommended entry position of an airport pattern is
to enter 45 degrees at the midpoint of the downwind leg at traffic altitude. (4-18)
What id the purpose of the runway hold position sign
Denotes entrance to a runway from a taxiway. (4-28)
What does the outbound destination sign identify?
Identifies direction to takeoff runways. (AIM)
If a control tower and an FSS are located at the same airport, which function is provided by the FSS during those periods when the tower is closed?
Airport Advisory Service (AIM)
When should pilots state their position on the airport when calling the tower for takeoff?
When departing from the runway intersection (AIM)
