The Hardest VFR Quiz You'll Take This Month

Nobody said this was going to be easy...


  1. 1) You're flying in Class G airspace at 11,500' MSL, which is 1,158' AGL at your present location. It's daytime. What are your VFR weather minimums?
    Boldmethod

    In Class G, regardless of MSL altitude, when you are 1,200 feet AGL or lower during the day, your weather minimums are 1SM visibility and clear of clouds.

  3. 3) Your true course is 180 degrees and you're at 0 degrees of magnetic variation. You're flying in calm winds. What altitude should you fly?
    Boldmethod

    Since you're in calm winds, your heading and course will be the same, 180 degrees. FAR 91.159 specifies an even altitude +500' on magnetic headings of 180 - 359 degrees.

  5. 5) You're taking your friends for a trip, and they ask to split fuel costs. There are storms in the forecast, so you decide to hangar your plane. Can you ask them to split the hangar fees too?
    Boldmethod

    FAR 61.113 (c) allows you to split airport expenditures equally (pro-rata).

  6. 6) You're in Atlanta's Class B airspace at 11,500', within 3 NM of the airport. What's the fastest you can fly?

    FAR 91.117 doesn't set a speed limit when you're inside Class B airspace. Since you're above 10,000' MSL, there's no speed restriction.

  7. 7) Isogonic lines on a VFR sectional chart show _______.

    The amount and the direction of variation, which change slightly over time, is shown on most aeronautical charts as broken magenta lines, called isogonic lines, which connect points of equal magnetic variation. Don't confuse magnetic variation with magnetic deviation, or the error induced in a compass by your aircraft's magnetic fields.
