Quiz 2 - Systems and Technology 1)The most serious problems facing airport growth in the U


Quiz 2 - Systems and Technology

1)The most serious problems facing airport growth in the U.S. include

  a. Future growth of commercial and general aviation could be constrained by lack of airport capacity.

  b. Congestion and delay at the busiest airports

  c. Facilities at the busiest airports are not adequate to accommodate demand in all conditions of weather and visibility.

  d. All of the above

  e. a. and b. only

  f. b. and c. only

2)Some of the advantages of a GPS type approach over the1940's ILS technology are:

   a. Flexibility for the pilot and controller in selecting an approach path

  b. Better and more controlled guidance on a missed approach

  c. Can increase capacity

  d. All of the above

3)The airport is a complex transportation system serving aircraft, passengers, cargo, and surface vehicles. The main components of an airport are

 a. airside which includes runways, taxiways, and airspace 

  b. landside which begins or ends at curbside.

  c. terminal which separates two of the components

  d. runways, taxiways, apron, and terminalorrect!

  e. only a, b, and c are correct


4) The term “heavy” aircraft refers to those with a gross takeoff weight:

  a. in excess of 150,000 lbs

  b. in excess of 100,000 lbs

  c. in excess of 12,500 lbs

  d. in excess of 300,000 lbs

  e. between 12,500 and 300,000 lbs


5)Current airspace use procedures require longitudinal (in-trail) separation of 3 NM between aircraft conducting instrument approaches to the same runway. Present ATC procedures specify that the nominal longitudinal separation standards for VMC or IMC be adjusted to compensate for the possible effects of wake turbulence.  Since there is a direct relationship between in-trail separation and throughput, a procedural change would be a very effective method to reduce delay under instrument flight conditions.





6)A technological need in relieving delay at airports, aside from improved radar to monitor aircraft more closely spaced in terminal airspace, is development of techniques to improve the detection and prediction of weather and atmospheric effects such as wake vortex. 



7)Wake vortex is an aerodynamic disturbance that originates on the vertical stabilizer and trails in corkscrew fashion behind the aircraft.



8)TWDR primary use is for detecting wind shear.



9)WPOS gathers weather data from unmanned sensors, automatically formulate weather reports, and distribute them to airport control towers.



10)Aircraft noise has two main components:  _______ noise produced by moving engine parts and by air flow through the engine, and _______ noise caused by the passage of air over aircraft surfaces.

  a. weight, lift

  b. thrust, drag

  c. engine, airframe

  d. mechanical, aerodynamic

11)New technology is employed at airports to achieve the following results except:

  Higher efficiency

  Higher costs

  Greater safety

  Greater accuracy

  Improved reliability

  Increased capacity

  Greater convenience

Quiz Facility Requirements

1) Airfield facility requirements for electronic, visual, and satellite aids to navigation are based on:

  a. the aircraft fleet mix

  b. the percentage of time that poor weather conditions are present

  c. the cost to users of not being able to use the airport when it is not accessible

  d. all of the above

  a. and b. only

2) On-airport air cargo operators that require direct access to the airfield include: (5)

  a. Integrated Carriers

  b. Freight Forwarders

  c. All Cargo Operators

  d. Combination Carriers

  e. All of the above

  f. a., c. and d. only

  g. c. and d only

3)Investigations to be conducted for an airport with a control tower when determining airspace requirements include:

  a. verification of line-of-sight

  b. assessing the impact of growth at the airport on airspace classification

  c. assessing the impact of growth at neighboring airports on airspace classification

  d. all of the above

  e. a. and b. only

4) Runway length requirements are based on the longest non-stop distance to be flown by the design aircraft at an airport.



5)Non-aeronautical facilities on-airport are considered temporary uses or surplus to needs and therefore are not to be encouraged.



6) What is the main role of the taxiways on an airfield and what are their requirements?

7) Describe three factors that may influence the demand for general aviation facilities at an airport.

8) In planning for new or expanded facilities at an airport why is it important to understand the operation of the user(s) using the facility?
