Missing Met Questions Which Require Images in Android App

These are the questions which are missing from the android app due to their requirement to have images included. By reviewing these questions you will have verified the same level of knowledge as using the iOS app.

1. Refer to the extract from Form 214 below. The forecast wind velocity and temperature at 2000 ft amsl over position 52°30N 005°00W is:

a) 150°/35 kt, +13°C

b) 140°/25 kt, +11°C

c) 130°/30 kt, +14°C

d) 130°/25 kt, +7°C

2. Refer to the extract from a Forecast Weather Form 215 below. What is the outlook until 020000Z?

a) Zone C will have haze and isolated stratus patches forming on upslopes from 2000z.

b) Zone A becoming occasional moderate rain showers and isolated heavy rain showers with thunderstorms

c) Zone B will have heavy rain and heavy thunderstorms from 1700Z.

d) Zone B1 will have occasional visibility down to 4000m in mist becoming occasional moderate rain showers and isolated showers with thunderstorms

3. Refer to the extract from a Forecast Weather Form 215 below. Which of the following statements concerning the warm front near Scotland is correct?

a) It is moving in a north easterly direction at 5 kt

b) It is moving east north easterly at 10 kt

c) It is not moving

d) It is moving in slowly in a southerly direction

4. Refer to the extract from a Forecast Weather Form 215 below. What is the height of the 0° Isotherm in Area C?

a) 6000ft in the east and above 10000ft in the west

b) 5000ft

c) 3000ft-4000ft

d) 6000ft-8000ft

5. Refer to the extract from a Forecast Weather Form 215 below. Under Area C what does, OCNL SCT/BKN SC AC ^ 050-070 / XXX mean?

a) Occasional three to seven eighths Strato-Cumulus and Alto-Cumulus cloud and Moderate turbulence in cloud based between 5000-7000ft and going up to 10,000feet

b) Occasional five to seven eighths Strato-Cumulus and Alto-Cumulus cloud and Moderate turbulence in cloud based between 5000-7000ft and going up to 10,000feet

c) Occasional three to seven eighths Cumulus and Strato-Cumulus cloud and Severe turbulence based between 2000- 3500ft and going up to between 5000feet and 10000feet

d) Occasional three to seven eighths Cumulus and Strato-Cumulus cloud and Moderate turbulence based between 2000- 3500ft and going up to between 5000feet and 20000feet

6. Refer to the extract from a Forecast Weather Form 215 below. A route for a solo precision visual navigation exercise (in which the pilot is required to follow the route without deviation) is pre-planned for an area of North Eastern England in Area C at about 1200Z 01 Oct 2013. The exercise area is below controlled airspace. Maximum indicated airspeed will be 100 kt and the flight is to be operated not below 1500 ft amsl. The VMC minima for a PPL holder without an IMC or Instrument Rating are therefore: Clear of cloud and in sight of the surface and flight visibility of not less than 1500m. The aircraft is not certificated for flight in known icing conditions. What is the most reasonable course of action?

a) The cloud base and visibility are within the required limits. Take off when ready. Be aware of a lower cloud base as the front passes during the afternoon.

b) The conditions are below minima at present, but will improve during the afternoon. Postpone departure until later in the day

c) The cloud base is forecast to be 020-050 with Isolated embedded Cumulus. Postpone the flight until the front has gone through.

d) The cloud base is 2000-3000ft with locally embedded CB. In isolated areas along the sea coast the cloud base goes down to 300-800 ft. Some of the exercise will have to be flown in IMC
