1.The term “angle of attack” is defined as the angle between the…

Correct Answer : Chord line of the wing and the relative wind

2.Why is frost considered hazardous to flight?

Correct Answer : Frost spoils the smooth flow of air over the wings, decreasing lifting capability

7.During a spin to the left, which wing(s) are stalled?

Correct Answer : Both

8.What are the four forces acting on an aircraft?

Correct Answer : Lift, Weight, Thrust, and Drag

9.Which of the following is not one of the 4 forces that act on an aircraft while straight and level?

Correct Answer : Centrifugal

10.What is the best rate of climb?

Correct Answer : Vy

11.What is the best angle of climb?

Correct Answer : Vx

12. In straight and level, unaccelerated flight, the sum of opposing forces on the aircraft is always?
