Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering MCQs [Quiz 5]

Q1. If the aircraft is flying nose heavy, which direction would you move the elevator trim tab?

A: Up to move elevator up

B: Down to move elevator up

C: Up to move elevator down

Q2. A split flap?

A: Forms part of the trailing edges lower surface when retracted

B: Forms part of the trailing edges upper surface when retracted

C: Forms part of the leading edges lower surface when retracted

Q3. What effect does lowering flaps to take off position setting have?

A: Reduces take-off speeds only

B: Reduces landing speed only

C: Reduces take off and landing speeds

Q4. Flight spoilers?

A: Can be used with differential ailerons to reduce adverse yaw in a turn

B: Can be deployed on the down going wing in a turn to increase lift on that wing

C: Can be used to decrease lift to allow controlled descent without reduction of airspeed

Q5. Due to the change of lift forces resulting from the extension of flaps in flight?

A: Nose should remain in the same position, maintaining same AOA

B: Nose should be raised, increasing AOA

C: Nose should be lowered, reducing AOA

Q7. AOA is the angle between chord line and?

A: Horizontal axis

B: Tip patch plane


Q8. What is a slot used for?

A: Increase AOA during approach

B: Increase the speed of airflow

C: To reinforce the boundary layer

Q9. Elevons combine the functions of both?

A: Rudder and elevator

B: Rudder and aileron

C: Elevator and aileron

Q10. How is the stabiliser automatically controlled in normal manual operation?
