Good luck!

  1. 1) As a non-instrument rated private pilot in an airplane, can you request an SVFR clearance to land at an airport after sunset?

    To request an SVFR clearance into an airport, you need to hold a private pilot certificate, and you can only operate SVFR between sunrise and sunset. To operate SVFR after sunset, you need to be qualified for instrument flight under FAR 61, and your aircraft needs to be equipped for instrument flight as well.

  2. 2) You’re flying here at 18,000 feet MSL (blue arrow). What airspace are you in?

    Class A airspace starts at 18,000 feet MSL over the entire Contiguous United States.

  3. 3) You’re flying into KTYR to land, and you’re within 2 miles of the airport at 1,000 feet AGL. What’s the maximum speed you can fly?

    When you are within 4 nautical miles and 2500′ of the surface of a Class C or D airport, you can not fly at an indicated airspeed of more than 200 knots (FAR 91.117)

  4. 4) You’re in the mountains at 12,500 feet MSL, and you’re 700 AGL in Class G airspace. What is your minimum required visibility during the day?

    Regardless of your MSL altitude, as long as you’re 1,200 feet AGL and lower, your daytime visibility requirement is 1 SM.

    Regardless of your MSL altitude, as long as you’re 1,200 feet AGL and lower, your daytime visibility requirement is 1 SM.

  5. 5) You’re flying in the same exact spot as question #4 at night. What’s your minimum required visibility now?

    In this case, the visibility requirement bumps up to 3 SM.

    In this case, the visibility requirement bumps up to 3 SM.

  6. 6) What altitude does Class A airspace extend to?

    Class A airspace extends to FL600 because every aircraft flying over 18,000′ MSL must have their altimeter set to a standard pressure of 29.92. With pressure changes, the MSL altitude of FL600 may fluctuate, which is why all aircraft use a standard pressure setting.
