Sample Test for Aircraft Dispatchers
Non Towered Operation


This just one for the Basic sample exams of DLC (Distance Learning Course

1: As you approach a non-towered airport for the purpose of landing, from how far out should you monitor and communicate, as appropriate, on the appropriate frequency (unless the Federal Aviation Regulation or local procedure require otherwise)?
5 miles
10 miles
15 miles
20 miles
2: After departing from a non-towered airport, until how far out should you monitor and communicate on the appropriate frequency (unless the Federal Aviation Regulations or local procedures require otherwise)?
5 miles
10 miles
15 miles
20 miles
3: The "appropriate frequency" mentioned in the first two questions is, of course, the Common Traffic Advisory Frequency (CTAF). This coul be
unicom
multicom
FSS frequency
(closed or part-time) tower frequency
any of the above
4: In preperation for landing at a non-towered airport, you want to set your altimeter for the local area. This information is sometimes available
on the CTAF
from the Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) frequency
from a nearby airport's Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS)
All of the above.
5: You intend to conduct practice instrument approaches at a non-towered airport What announcement(s) should you make on the CTAF?
when departing the final approach fix, inbound
when established on the final approach segment or immediately upon being released by ATC
upon completion or termination of the approach
upon executing the missed approach procedure
all of the above
6: You are approaching Strawn Airport, a non-towered, non-FSS field with Unicom availabe, for the purpose of making a touch down and go landing. As you enter the downwind, what radio transmission should you make on the CTAF?
trawn unicom, Bugsmasher 1234X, entering downwind, runway one seven, touch and go, Strawn.
Strawn unicom, Bugsmasher 1234X, entering downwind, runway one seven, touch and go.
Strawn traffic, Bugsmasher 1234X, entering downwind, runway one seven, touch and go, Strawn.
Strawn traffic, Bugsmasher 1234X entering downwind, runway one seven.
Any of the above are acceptable methods.
7: You wish to depart a non-towered airport on an IFR flight plan, which you have already filed. According to the FAA, what is the appropriate way to get your IFR clearance?
Depart in VFR conditions and contact ATC when airborne. Maintain VFR until you get your IFR clearance.
Telephone or transmit via radio to a FSS and get a clearance, which will contain a clearance void time.
Make a radio transmission to a UNICOM license that's arranged to relay ATC messages.
8: When appraoching an unfamiliar non-towered airport, you choose to fly over the airport to observe the aircraft layout, any local traffic in the area, and the wind and traffic direction indicators. Such a fly-over should be at how many feet above the traffic pattern altitude?
300'
500'
1000'
2000'
9: You are very familiar with a local airport, which has a part-time control tower. All runways at this airport have a standard left hand traffic. When approaching from the west during the day, you've often been told by TAC to enter right traffic for Runway 18. One evening, a you're approaching from the west after the tower has closed, the AWOS reports the wind as 250 at 4 knots. You may
fly right hand traffic for Runway 18
fly left hand traffic for Runway 36
either a or b
10: You wish to practice some landings at a non-towered airport. After take-off, you should not begin your turn to the crosswind leg until you are within how many feet of traffic pattern altitude?
200'
300'
400'
Do not begin your turn to crosswind until you have reached traffic pattern altitude.
