Planning a flight from Paris (Charles de Gaulle) to London (Heathrow) for a twin – jet aeroplane.

Preplanning:
Maximum Take-off Mass: 62 800 kg,
Maximum Zero Fuel Mass: 51 250 kg;
Maximum Landing Mass: 54 900 kg,
Maximum Taxi Mass: 63 050 kg,
Assume the following preplanning results:
Trip fuel: 1 800 kg,
Alternate fuel: 1 400 kg,
Holding fuel (final reserve): 1 225 kg,
Dry Operating Mass: 34 000 kg,
Traffic Load: 13 000 kg,
Catering: 750 kg,
Baggage: 3 500 kg.
Find the Take-off Mass (TOM):

A: 52 265 kg.
B: 55 765 kg.
C: 51 425 kg.
D: 51 515 kg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: D

In a flight plan when the destination aerodrome is A and the alternate aerodrome is B, the final reserve fuel for a turbojet engine aeroplane corresponds to:

A: 30 minutes holding 1,500 feet above aerodrome B
B: 30 minutes holding 2,000 feet above aerodrome B
C: 15 minutes holding 2,000 feet above aerodrome A
D: 30 minutes holding 1,500 feet above aerodrome A

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: A

Mark the correct statement: If a decision point procedure is applied for flight planning,

A: the trip fuel to the destination aerodrome is to be calculated via the suitable enroute alternate.
B: the trip fuel to the destination aerodrome is to be calculated via the decision point.
C: a destination alternate is not required.
D: the fuel calculation is based on a contingency fuel from departure aerodrome to the decision point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: B

You are to determine the maximum fuel load which can be carried in the following conditions :; – dry operating mass : 2800 kg; – trip fuel : 300 kg; – payload : 400 kg; – maximum take-off mass : 4200 kg; – maximum landing mass : 3700 kg

A: 700 kg
B: 1000 kg
C: 800 kg
D: 500 kg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: C

Given: Distance from departure to destination:

Distance from departure to destination:260 NM

Safe Endurance:4,1 h               True Track:150

W/V: 100/30                             TAS: 110 kt

What is the distance of the PSR from the departure point?

A: 213 NM

B: 154 NM

C: 107 NM

D: 47 NM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: A

Given the following: D = flight distance X = distance to Point of Equal Time GSo = groundspeed out GSr = groundspeed return The correct formula to find distance to Point of Equal Time is:

A: X = (D/2) + GSr / (GSo + GSr)
B: X = D x GSo / (GSo + GSr)
C: X = (D/2) x GSo / (GSo + GSr)
D: X = D x GSr / (GSo + GSr)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: D
