Quiz: 6 Questions To See If You Can Pass A Multi-Engine Checkride

Boldmethod

It's the next big step in your aviation career...


  1. 1) You're planning to do your checkride in a Beechcraft Baron (non-counter rotating engines). Your examiner asks you which engine is critical, and what it means for an engine to be critical, so you say...

    On a twin aircraft with non-counter rotating engines, the critical engine is the left engine. The critical engine, when inoperative, has the most adverse effects on the directional control of the aircraft.

  2. 2) What are the 4 forces that cause the engine to be critical?

    The four forces that cause the left engine to be critical include: P-Factor (yaw), Accelerated Slipstream (rolling), Spiraling Slipstream (yaw), and Torque (rolling).

  3. 3) Your examiner asks you what Vmc is, so you tell them...

    Vmc is the slowest speed, with the critical engine inoperative, where you can still maintain directional control.

  4. 4) Which components of the propeller assembly cause the propeller to move toward a high pitch, low RPM condition?

    Counterweights, a spring and a nitrogen charge in the propeller hub cause the propeller to move to a high pitch, low RPM condition.

  5. 5) Your critical engine is inoperative. What common methods can you use to maintain level flight in the aircraft?

    There are three common methods: wings level method (all rudder, no bank), bank only (all bank, no rudder), and the zero sideslip (a combination of coordinated rudder and bank). In most piston aircraft, the preferred method is zero sideslip, which gives you the best performance.
