    B. 700 foot increase in indicated altitude.
  13. 3388 Under which condition will pressure altitude be equal to true altitude?



    B. When standard atmospheric conditions exist.
  14. 3389 Under what condition is pressure altitude and density altitude the same value?



    A. At standard temperature.
  15. 3390 If a flight s made from an area of low pressure into an area of high pressure without the altimeter setting being adjusted, the altimeter will indicate



    C. Lower than the actual altitude above sea level.
  16. 3391 If a flight is made from an area of high pressure into an area of lower pressure without the altimeter setting being adjusted, the altimeter will indicate



    B. higher than the actual altitude above sea level.
  17. 3393 Which condition would cause the altimeter to indicate a lower altitude than true altitude?



    C. Air temperature warmer than standard.
  18. 3250 (Refer to figure 3.) Altimeter 1 indicates
    Image Upload 1


    C. 10,500 feet
  19. 3251 (Refer to figure 3.) Altimeter 2 indicates
    Image Upload 2


    B. 14,500 Feet
  20. 3252 (Refer to Figure 3.) Altimeter 3 indicates
    Image Upload 3


    C. 9,500 Feet
  21. 3253 (Refer to figure 3.) Which altimeter/s indicates more than 10,000 feet?
    Image Upload 4


    A. 1,2
  22. 3387 If a pilot changes the altimeter setting from 30.11 to 29.96, what is the approximate change in indication?



    C. Altimeter will indicate 150' lower.
  23. 3278 (Refer to Figure 7.) How should a pilot determine the direction of bank from an attitude indicator such as the one illustrated?
    Image Upload 5


    A. By the relationship of the miniature airplane (c) to the deflected horizon bar (b)
  24. 3275 (Refer to figure 5) A turn coordinator provides an indication of the
    Image Upload 6


    C. movement of the aircraft about the yaw and roll axis.
  25. 3277 (Refer to figure 7.) The proper adjustment to make on the attitude indicator during level flight is to align the
    Image Upload 7


    C. miniature airplane to the horizon bar.
  26. 3276 (Refer to figure 6.) To receive accurate indications during flight from a heading indicator, the instrument must be


    B. periodically realigned with the magnetic compass as the gyro precesses.
  27. 3279 Deviation in a magnetic compass is caused by the



    C. magnetic fields within the aircraft distorting the lines of magnetic force.
  28. 3279-1 The angular difference between true north and magnetic north is



    B. magnetic variation.
  29. 3282 In the Northern Hemisphere, a magnetic compass will normally indicate a turn toward the north if



    A. an aircraft is accelerated while on an east or west heading.
  30. 3283 In the Northern Hemisphere, the magnetic compass will normally indicate a turn toward the south when



    C. the aircraft is decelerated while on a west heading.
  31. 3283-1 What should be the indication on the magnetic compass as you roll into a standard rate turn to the right from a south heading in the Norther Hemisphere?



    A. The compass will indicate a turn to the right, but at a faster rate than is actually occurring.
  32. 3284 In the Northern Hemisphere, if an aircraft is accelerated or decelerated, the magnetic compass will normally indicate



    C. correctly when on a north or south heading.
  33. 3280 In the Northern Hemisphere, a magnetic compass will normally indicate initially a turn toward the west if



    C. a right turn is entered from a north heading.
  34. 3281 In the Northern Hemisphere, a magnetic compass will normally indicate initially a turn toward the east if



    A. a left turn is entered from a north heading.
  35. 3286 During flight, when are the indications of a magnetic compass accurate?



    B. Only in straight and level unaccelerated flight.
