Here is my stab in the dark.

Q1/8= 264

Q2/10= n/west

Q3/13= due South

Q4/19= 4

Q5/25= 300

Q6/36= power on approach/power on landing

I think that VOR's are more commonly identified with a 3 letter morse Code. Usually the IDENT sounds looping every 10 seconds or so.

For example the following Abbeville VOR on 116.6 will be identified by the morse code ABB ( • − −••• −••• )

If you really want to join a Virtual Airline and enjoy it (and not look like a utter retard) you might want to research and learn these items FOR YOURSELF!!! Having someone give you the answers is a "Lazy Slackers" way out.

Regarding the question about gusty wind conditions, I am a former CFII/MEI and former airline pilot and I have never heard or used the terms power-off approach/power-off-on landing. (Unless you have an engine failure or something) If you are flying an approach without power I hope you are in a glider! In gusty winds you should generally take the windshear/gust component and add that to your airspeed. Example winds are 20 kts gusting to 30 add 10 kias to your final approach speed.

I agree with JLangevin, if you are gong to fly with a VA, you should know the ropes. How would you feel if the next time you flew "for real" and your pilot had "faked" his exam?

I always used the mnemonic SWEVEN - South and West is even.
