Term
 What is the drift angle?
Definition
 The angle by which the aircraft will be displaced from its intended track because of the wind.It's the angle between True heading and True Track.

Definition
 It will decrease by 1 day.
Term
 If we cross the international date line westbound. What will happen with the date?
Definition
 It will increase by 1 day.
Term
 How is the Uniform Daylight Period described?

Definition
 Clouds below 5000' and there is no significant weather like CB's or TS'
Term
 When do we need to file a flightplan?
Definition
 - When planning to cross/stop at a controlled airfield.- When crossing controlled airspace.- When crossing an international FIR boundary.- When conducting an IFR flight.- In the North Sea Area
Term
 What is the operating range of a VOR?
Definition
 108.00 mHz - 117.95 mHz
Term
 What is the operating range of a NDB?
Definition
 190 kHz - 1750 kHz
Term
 What is the range of an NDB?
Definition
Term
 To what are the radials of a VOR beacon referenced?
Definition
 Magnetic North
Term
 Does an NDB tell you on what radial from the beacon you are?
Definition
 Negative, NDB only gives you bearing to the station.
Term
 When will the distance between 2 points on earth be shortest exactly over the pole?
Definition
 When the points are on each others anti-meridian.
Term

Term
 The sun displaces itself over earth by an speed of xx ° per hour. What is XX?
Definition
 15 °
Term
 When the mean sun transits (crosses) a particular meridian, how late is it at all places on that meridian?
Definition
 1200 LMT
Term
 When does the EET on a flightplan start and when does it end?
Definition
 It starts at T/O and ends overhead the field (VFR)
Term
 What time do we fill in at the flight plan under as departure time?
Definition
 The off-blocks time.
Term
 What speed do we use for the cruising speed in the flight plan?
Definition
 TAS. For example TAS = 94 kts we will fill in :N0094
Term
 Where does the TODA consists of?
Definition
 Take-off run available + (clearway when available)
Term
 When do we call a field balanced?
Definition
 When the TODA = ASDA
Term
 If we fly eastbound under VFR rules, what flightlevel should we pick? FL100, FL105, FL110, FL115
Definition
 We should pick FL115 as we fly east and need an uneven flightlevel. As we're flying VFR we need to add 500 feet to avoid IFR traffic so we reach FL115.
