If an arriving aircraft is making a straight in approach a departing aircraft may take off in any direction

A: until three minutes before the arriving aircraft is estimated to be over the instrument runway
B: until five minutes before the arriving aircraft is estimated to be over the instrument runway
C: until two minutes before the arriving aircraft is estimated to be over the instrument runway
D: until ten minutes before the arriving aircraft is estimated to be over the instrument runway

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: B

The longitudinal separation minima based on DME, and each aircraft “on track” uses DME stations, is:

A: 10 NM provided that the leading aircraft maintains a true airspeed of 40 kt or more faster than the succeding aircraft.
B: 10 NM provided that the leading aircraft maintains a true airspeed of 20 kt or more faster than the succeding aircraft.
C: 20 NM provided that the leading aircraft maintains a true airspeed of 10 kt or more faster than the succeding aircraft.
D: 10 NM provided that the leading aircraft maintains a true airspeed of 10 kt or more faster than the succeding aircraft.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: B

The longitudinal separation minima based on time between aircraft at same cruising level where navigation aids permit frequent determination of position and speed and the preceding aircraft is maintaining a true airspeed of 20 kt or more faster than the succeeding aircraft, is:

A: 15 minutes.
B: 3 minutes.
C: 10 minutes.
D: 5 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: D

According with DOC 4444 (ICAO), a wake turbulence non-radar separation minima of 3 minutes shall be applied to:

A: LIGHT aircraft taking-off behind a MEDIUM aircraft from a parallel runway separated by less than 760 m. (using whole runway)
B: LIGHT aircraft landing behind a MEDIUM aircraft
C: LIGHT aircraft taking -off behind a MEDIUM aircraft when aircraft are using the same runway
D: MEDIUM aircraft landing behind a HEAVY aircraft
