  8. Airways designated on the chart with an identifier V or W are:
    1. available for use in non-controlled airspace only
    2. available for use in controlled airspace only
    3. area navigation routes
    4. not area navigation routes
  9. Airway Z84 to Bundaberg is:
    1. an area navigation route
    2. not an area navigation route
    3. available in Class E airspace only
    4. available for operations OCTA only
  10. Area navigation allows operations on:
    1. any aircraft flight path within the coverage of ground-based navigation aids only
    2. any aircraft flight path within the coverage of ground-based navigation aids, space-based navigation aids or self-contained navigation aids, or any combination of them
    3. any aircraft flight path flown within controlled airspace only
    4. an aircraft flight path for published terminal arrival (STAR) and departure (SID) procedures only
  11. The LSALT specified for a route segment is only valid for which operations?
    1. RNP2
    2. RNP10
    3. for operations within the rated coverage of the navaids being used
    4. area navigation operations
  12. To operate to RNP2 standards, a Part 91 IFR operation must comply with which of the following?
    1. a specific operator approval is required
    2. if approved to do so in the aircraft flight manual
    3. if the PIC is authorised to conduct RNP AR operations
    4. RNP2 operations are only permitted for Part 135 and 121 operators
  13. To use an electronic flight bag (EFB) for enroute charts, what limitations apply?
    1. only for use during enroute operations, and not available for instrument approaches
    2. allowed only for VFR operations unless the PIC is endorsed to use EFB information
    3. paper charts are required in controlled airspace unless a backup device is carried
    4. provided the information comes from an approved data provider
  14. Current approved data providers for EFB information include:
    1. Jeppesen, Avsoft, Garmin, Ozrunways and Foreflight
    2. Airservices Australia only
    3. any EFB data can be used and, if it has a moving map and valid GPS, it can be used for navigational purposes
    4. FAA-provided information is the only data approved for EFB use in Australia
  15.  One limitation of ERC Low charts is?
    1. they are only valid up to 8,500 feet
    2. they are only valid up to FL110
    3. they are designed primarily for aircraft operating transcontinental and intercity capital routes.
    4. aeronautical information within terminal areas may not be complete and pilots should use a TAC or VTC

  1. I’ll just reach into my flight bag of IFR and VFR charts covering all of Australia to come up with these answers to questions like:

    Overhead Bundaberg (YBUD), climbing into Class E airspace, what frequency should be contacted for clearance?

    BN CEN 124.1
    BN CEN 121.2
    Bundaberg 124.1
    BN CEN 135.2

    Airway W636 for navigation between YBUD and YGLA is available for:

    tracking to the north only
    tracking to the south only
    tracking in both directions at all levels
    tracking in both directions OCTA only

    Airway Z84 to Bundaberg is:

    an area navigation route
    not an area navigation route
    available in Class E airspace only
    available for operations OCTA only

    At least provide the reference materials (IFR charts) so we readers can look at them. I do not maintain a worldwide coverage nor even an Australia-wide coverage, just what I need and can afford to maintain current.

    Think like a Pilot.

  2. Good reminder of the complexity of the airspace we operate in and the variety of documents we need to access to obtain complete information.
