1.

The document 'Procedures for Air Navigation Services - Air Traffic Management' (P ANSATM) is also commonly known by its ICAO document number. What is the document number?
a.
b.
c.
d.

2.

The ICAO Rules of the Air are detailed in Annex 2. Why do we need PANS-ATM?
a.
b.
c.
d.

3.

Annex 2 doesn't cover national procedures. PANS-ATM does


PANS documents contain far more detail of procedures than can be incorporated in the
relevant Annex to the Convention
ATC procedures are covered in Annex 11 and the Rules of the Air in Annex 2. As the
two are complimentary, they have both been combined in PANS-ATM
PANS -ATM is applicable to pilots and ATCOs, whereas Annex 2 is only applicable to
pilots

When do PANS-ATM procedures absolve pilots from the responsibility for terrain avoidance?
a.
b.
c.
d.

4.

Doc 8168
Doc 1234
Doc 4444
Doc 7333

Never
During take off and landing
When under radar vectoring
When flying a pre-defined instrument approach procedure

A flight plan may be filed to the ATCC by:


1.
2.
3.

In person
By phone
By fax
By teleprinter
Letter
E-mail

a.
b.
c.
d.

7.

c.
d.

Continue - the ATCOs must know what they are doing!


File a revised flight plan for another route
Tell the ATCO that you cannot comply and will fly the route as flight planned
Request a revised clearance

What are the objectives of an ATC clearance?


a.
b.
c.
d.

10.

If he/she is unable to maintain IMC


If he/she is able to complete a significant part of the remainder of the flight in
uninterrupted VMC
If advised to do so by A TC
If by remaining IFR delays will be incurred in holding patterns

You are given an ATC clearance which includes flight through prohibited airspace. What should
you do?
a.
b.
c.
d.

9.

Re-negotiate a new slot time


Taxy as soon a possible
Ask ATC re issue a revised clearance
File a revised flight plan

When maya pilot elect to change flight rules from IFR to VFR?
a.
b.

8.

Estimated Out-Bound Time


Engine start/On Board Time
Estimated Off Blocks Time
Estimate Of Brakes off Time

Collision avoidance and air traffic flow management


To see how accurately the pilot can read the clearance back and test ifhe can spot errors
To allow a flight to commence and to inform subsequent ATCC that the flight is about
to commence
To give route and altitude specific infofmation when different from that flight planned

The met man records QNH (ie MSL pressure to the nearest 1 decimal place). How is QNH
reported if the QNH is 1007.8mb?
a.
b.
c.
d.

1008mb
1007mb
If Temp is greater than 15 C, 1008
It doesn't really matter. Either 1007 or 1008 will do!

11.

a.
b.
c.
d.

12.

The aerodrome elevation


The threshold of the landing runway
The altitude of the highest point on the manoeuvring area
The threshold elevation if 2 metres or more below aerodrome elevation

An aeroplane has a take off mass of 136,000 kg. What is the wake turbulence category of this
aeroplane?
a.
b.
c.
d.

15.

The pilot
The ATCO
The operator
The authority of the state in which the aerodrome is situated

When an aircraft carrying out a non precision instrument approach is cleared to land using Q FE,
height is express with reference to what?
a.
b.
c.
d.

14.

The pilot
TheATCO
The operator
The authority of the state in which the aerodrome is situtated

Who determines the transition height?


a.
b.
c.
d.

13.

REVISION QUESTIONS

Heavy. Any aeroplane with a max take off mass equal to or greater than 136,000 kg is
heavy
Medium. Only aeroplanes with max take off mass greater than 136,000 kg are heavy.
It depends upon the actual take off mass not max take off mass. If actual take off mass
is equal to or less than 136,000Kg - medium; more than 136,000 - Heavy
A wide bodied aeroplane at that mass would be heavy, narrow body would be medium

If your aeroplane is wake turbulence category heavy, how do you indicate this to A TC?
a.
b.
c.
d.

Suffix your callsign with the word 'heavy' at all times


Suffix your callsign with the word 'heavy' on initial contact with a ATCU
You do not need to, it is on your flight plan
Make a point of telling A TC at some time after initial contact that you are a heavy
category aeroplane
