Please....reconsider....join for the aircraft, not the VA...there's BETTER air france VA's...Agus0404's site probably has one 😞 😞 Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I wish I read this earlier - I just applied to Delta VA ( ❗ )
Oh well, I'll get the planes from them and then leave 😀
The Air France VA isn't the affiliate of Delta VA, but since Agus0404 has an AFrance va, I'll apply to that one.

Chris, inside the Air France VA website you have a Training link. You can click there and learn some things from there. What I do is find a good website about Tutorials or something else and then learn all the topics I need to know and then (off course) more topics 😉

This is my favorite website about learning different topics about aviation:

Hmmm....uh...Well, I don't know the answer of that question, I'm sorry. But I think the answer is Tailwind.

Ok, ok, you won. Crying or Very sad But now, when I click on "Submit" you will see me as a Chief Captain ❗

Did you figure out that you joined this website on October 9, 2004 and I joined on July 29, 2004? You joined after me and you won the Chief Captain position first. Hehe, just a fact.

I would appreciate it. SOme of them i really need to know the answer.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Manuel Agustin Clausse (Agus0404) Chief Captain

I'm going to help you with this by answering the questions I know for you:

1) (I think it's tailwind. You can ask PH or leadfoot for the answer of that question. Maybe they know that...they are real pilots!)

2) Take Off/Go Around

3) The speed at which you are commited to takeoff

4) Distance Measuring Equipment

5) The speed at which a plane can takeoff

6) You are declaring an emergency

7) All of the above (I think so... It kind of makes sense)

😎 Don't know the answer

9) Non-directional beacon

10) Don't know the answer

11) 202

12) I think it's this one: Indicated Airspeed Procedure (IAS means Indicated air speed, so I think the answer of IAP should be something referred to indicated airspeed)

13) Don't know the answer

14) Don't know the answer

15) Instrument Landing System

16) 150 KIAS (I think...I don't live in the US. I live in Europe and here it's 250 KIAS the speed limit below 10,000 ft)

17) EGLL

1😎 I think it's 3 letter codes

19) Don't know the answer

20) Top of clouds

21) 3 degree approach

22) The runway numbers

23) When you are ready for takeoff

24) I think it is Top of descent

25) I think it is FL390

26) I think it's Maintaining a safe airspeed

27) I think it's FL 370

2😎 I think it's Higher

29) Standard Instrument Departure

30) Apply more throttle

31) Permitted to continue the approach to the approach threshold of the ILS runway

32) The lift of the wing

33) Decrease the angle of descent without increasing the airspeed.

34) Flaps

35) Don't know the answer

36) Only when the tower controller concurs.

37) Pilot-in-command.

3😎 Increase the airspeed slightly above normal approach speed to penetrate the turbulence as quickly as possible.

39) I think it's Power and vertical velocity required to remain on the proper glidepath.

Well, you have the answers for those questions. I'm sorry if I didn't answer all of them. I'm not a commercial pilot.....yet
And some question I give my opinion, sorry for that too. Maybe it's not the right answer.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Manuel Agustin Clausse (Agus0404) Chief Captain

Ok, jolegg was faster than me to correct the answers. But at least, you have my answers too!

Blake14, unfortunately, you won't see the answers. I'm sorry.

Tell me the question that you want to know the answer. I'll help you.

Can you take an exam entry exam for a VA as many times as you want?

Pro Member Chief Captain
Chris102 Chief Captain

As many times as you want.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Manuel Agustin Clausse (Agus0404) Chief Captain

If you feel tired of taking the exam many times you can do the easy way by cheating:

When you finished the test and you got a bad grade you can go back, change your answers and then try to get a good grade. You can go back, change your first answer and then see if your score increased. If it increased, then your answer is right. If it decresed, your answer is wrong. When you know the answer of that question, go back to the other one and do the same thing until your score increases enough to know that your answer is right. Do you know what I mean?
You can write down the correct answers so you don't get lost.

Did you use my answers to do the test? I will try them too, but later...after school.

If you still fail the test, we can do it together.

Trust me, when you're done with the test, you will never see it again, 😂 and you will really enjoy that VA.

Actually i took some kind of test for Delta Virtual Airline, and well it was no mulitple choice and the questions seemed A LOT more diffcuilt that what people posted on this threat. Maybe this isnt an exam test but anyways it was hard and i sucked at it. But hopefully they'll get my results withint the next 48 hours.
