The Hardest VFR Quiz You'll Take This Week

Let's get started...


  1. 1) In Class E airspace, 5 SM of visibility is required when you are:

    FAR 91.155 requires 5SM of visibility at and above 10,000' MSL.

    FAR 91.155 requires 5SM of visibility at and above 10,000' MSL.

  2. 2) Above what cabin pressure altitude do you need to provide your passengers supplemental oxygen?

    FAR 91.211 requires you to provide passengers supplemental oxygen at cabin pressure altitudes above 15,000'.

    FAR 91.211 requires you to provide passengers supplemental oxygen at cabin pressure altitudes above 15,000'.

  3. 3) You're a non-instrument rated private pilot, and you pick up a Special VFR clearance into a Class E airport. What's the minimum visibility you need to land?

    You'll need 1SM visibility, and to remain clear of clouds on your SVFR clearance.

  4. 4) You're in the Salt Lake City Class B airspace at 11,000' MSL. What's the fastest you can legally fly?

    FAR 91.117 doesn't set a speed limit when you're in Class B airspace. Since you're above 10,000' MSL, there's no speed restriction. Except, of course, not exceeding the speed of sound.

  6. 6) If your true course is 180 degrees and you're at 0 degrees of magnetic variation, what altitude should you fly?

    FAR 91.159 specifies an even altitude +500' on magnetic headings of 180 - 359 degrees.

    FAR 91.159 specifies an even altitude +500' on magnetic headings of 180 - 359 degrees.

  7. 7) You're 5 NM from Portland International, a Class C airport, at 1500' AGL (1531' MSL). What's the fastest you can legally fly?

    FAR 91.117 (b) says that if you're at or below 2,500' and within 4 NM of the primary airport of a Class C or D airspace area, you're restricted to 200 knots. But since you're 5NM away, you're only restricted to 250 knots below 10,000' 

    FAR 91.117 (b) says that if you're at or below 2,500' and within 4 NM of the primary airport of a Class C or D airspace area, you're restricted to 200 knots. But since you're 5NM away, you're only restricted to 250 knots below 10,000'
