Question:621494 Which of the following is one of the functions of the Computer in a basic RNAV
system?
Answer It transfers the information given by a VOR/DME station into tracking and distance
indications to any chosen Phantom Station/waypoint
Option 1 It checks the ground station accuracy using a built-in test programme
Option 2 It calculates cross track information for NDB approaches
Option 3 It automatically selects the two strongest transmitters for the Area-Nav-Mode and continues
working by memory in case one of the two necessary station goes off the air

Question:621377 Why should the tilt of an Airborne Weather Radar system (without auto tilt) be
changed to a higher setting when descending over terrain?
Answer If the beam’s tilt remains at the setting used during cruise, the scanning range will be
reduced and significant ground clutter may be displayed.
Option 1 The higher tilt setting will keep the beam above the aircraft’s flight path.
Option 2 The higher tilt setting will narrow the beam width, allowing for effective detection of
cumulonimbus clouds at shorter range.
Option 3 If the beam’s tilt remains at the setting used during cruise, the scanning range will be
reduced and the strength of the reflected signals will be weaker.

Question:621477 With thunderstorms reported in the vicinity, when lining up on the runway what
would you do with the weather radar?
Answer After scanning upwards to look for weather set the tilt a few degrees up
Option 1 Select map mode so get a wider coverage during the take-off period
Option 2 Increase the gain to get a better image
Option 3 Turn the Ground clutter switch to off
