Subject Feedback
The overall result for this subject is sound. As a general guide to further improvement, candidates who failed had knowledge deficiencies across the following subject areas:
  • Extract from ERSA information relevant to aircraft performance; field length available (eg. TODA, TORA, ASDA, etc) and their relationship to one another.
  • Airspeed Limitations – the significance of airspeed limitations.
  • Aeroplane Weight Limitations, Loading & Balance – the relationship between fuel carried, burned off and aeroplane weight limitations; understand weight & balance theory, and weight limitations and loading characteristics listed in the ‘manual’ of an (exam model) aeroplane.
