1. 18000 feet
2. Electronic Flight Instrument System
3. Flight Level 170 - 17000 feet on the altimeter at 29.92 baro setting, 17000 feet is 17000 feet on the altimeter at local pressure. FL170 uses 29.92 as pressure but 17000 is local pressure
4. 737-700
5. A330-200
6. VREF - Reference Velocity
VAPP - Visual Approach procedure Confused
7. An igniter

Here are my answers!

1. The Transition Altitude in the UK is 3000 ft.

2. EFIS stand for Electronic Flight Instrument System.

3. 17,000 feet and FL170 is basically the same thing. FL170 means Flight Level 17,000, which is the same altitude as 17,000 feet. In the UK, every altitude above 3000 feet is a flight level.

4. I guess it's the -700 series.

5. The A330-200 has the longest range.

6. VAPP is the approach speed. VREF is the landing speed.

7. We need an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), and sometimes X-Bleed.

1. 6000 meters
2.Electronic Flight Insturments Display
3.There is no such thing as FL170
4.-600 series
5.A332
6. VAPP is approach speed, VREF is landing speed.
7. Air

Jolegg - You were so close! But I'm afraid Answers 1, 4, 6 and 7 are close but not quite right. Wink

Close Agus but I'm afraid 1,3 and 4 were not quite right !

1 = It needs to be stated in feet as the UK measure alt in feet but your close.

3 = Oh yes there is, check out Mr Jolegg's answer - he got this right.

All the rest were correct and you got what I thought were the hardest ones, which were 4, 5, and 6 so well done !

....so close - come on, someone must be able to get them all cracked now ! Wink

I'll try again, then.

1. 10,000 ft

2. EFIS stand for Electronic Flight Instrument System.

3. 17,000 is local pressure. FL170 is not. Once the airplane is at FL170, the barometric pressure should be 29.92 or 1013.

4. 737-600

5. The A330-200 has the longest range.

6. VAPP is the approach speed. VREF is the landing speed.

7. We need an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), and sometimes X-Bleed.

1. From what I can gather, it changes from airport to airport but outside the notified hours of operation the transition altitude is 3000 feet Confused
2. Electronic Flight Instrument System
3. Flight Level 170 - 17000 feet on the altimeter at 29.92 baro setting, 17000 feet is 17000 feet on the altimeter at local pressure. FL170 uses 29.92 as pressure but 17000 is local pressure
4. 737-400
5. A330-200
6. VAPP approach speed, VREF landing speed
7. APU

I suppose those are a bit closer

Jolegg.....You got them all correct except 1, 4 and 7....

You guys are so close - between you, you have got them all right except the last one, Question 7 Wink

....and the Guest above got that right... the answer is "Air" .... You are both correct in that the APU provides that Air, however, the APU is not the only way of providing Air to start the engines ...... Pnuematic power can be supplied from a Ground Cart too.

SO WELL DONE TO AGUS, 99JOLEGG and GUEST FOR GETTING ALL OF THE ANSWERS ! Laughing Laughing

Next time let's see who wins Very Happy

Cool! Thumbs Up!
Every day I learn something new. So the Transition Altitude in the UK was 10,000 feet, right? That was an interesting question Wink

Guest

Ha, I was the only one who got 7 right.
