test bank contains questions pertaining to
. The following list contains only a relatively small percentage of the pertinent
questions. Our software, which you are free to download now at no cost, will
generally contain a much more complete set of questions associated with this
test bank. This list is intended only to familiarize you in a general way with
the questions of the
FAA Written Test Prep Software
That said, while the following questions are intended
as a general familiarization tool, this list may not be up-to-date nor accurate.
We do not update this website as often as we update our software, which will
contain at any moment all questions that we have for a given test / topic. Therefore,
if you need to actually study for your test, instead of using the list below,
we strongly, strongly encourage you to download our GroundSchool
written test prep software. Not only is it more complete and more up to date,
but it also includes answers and explanation and has many features to make your
study fast and efficient.

Select the correct statement regarding stall speeds.
(Refer to figure 1.)
At the airspeed represented by point A, in steady flight, the airplane will
- The best L/D ratio of a glider occurs when parasite drag is

- What force causes the glider to turn in flight?
(Refer to figure 50.)
If the glider's airspeed is 70 MPH and a vertical gust of +30 ft/sec is encountered, which would most likely occur? The
Wingspan 51 ft
Average wing chord 4 ft
Wingspan 48 ft
Average wing chord 3.5 ft
Determine the correct aspect ratio and its effect on performance at low speeds.
- Why is it necessary to increase back elevator pressure to maintain altitude during a turn? To compensate for the
- An aircraft wing is designed to produce lift resulting from a difference in the
- If the airplane attitude remains in a new position after the elevator control is pressed forward and released, the airplane displays
(Refer to figure 5.)
The vertical line from point E to point F is represented on the airspeed indicator by the
- To generate the same amount of lift as altitude is increased, an airplane must be flown at
- The need to slow an aircraft below VA is brought about by the following weather phenomenon:
(Refer to figure 4.)
What is the stall speed of an airplane under a load factor of 2 G's if the unaccelerated stall speed is 60 knots?
