In the new syllabus for 2020 Met is definitely 30 feet per hPa

Is anyone doing the new EASA ATPL theory program?
Is anyone doing the new EASA ATPL theory program? I wanted to know if they still was the flight Computer and if it was still used in the new EASA ATPL program which has changed recently...? Any ideas?

it 30ft used for EASA ATPL exams! Sure!

Free ATPL Question Bank
Does anyone knows a good free question bank so you can refresh some knowledge, I've been looking for one but I am not able, all of then have free examples but thats not enough, I used to use Aviation exam but 170 for a year it's to much for me right know, anyone knows something

Thank you in advanced

If you don't want to pay, the one known as paco has one that I think is free. He'll be on shortly I imagine. Most pay-for-use QBs give you free access for a limited time.

The one known as paco is indeed lurking.... :)


No explanations, 50/50 button. use like flash cards

If you can stretch your budget to 12 you could give atplontrack a try for a month ;-)

I've come up short in my google search as they are both mentioned.

Thanks for the info

This is an interesting question.

When I sat my exams 2017-18, some subjects used 27 ft/hPa and others used 30. In fact, I remember a question in which depending on which assumption you used you obtained one of the possible options or another, which is really just plain mean by EASA.

I believe the standard is now 30 (for the new syllabus), but the question should specify

Good day pilots,

Currently studying for atpl exams and I stumbled upon a weird question in performance. "Most jet aircraft cruise at ___ of their maximum rpm"

I have studied both ATPL questions and now aviation exam and it appears the answer is different in each database.

In aviation exam it is: 75-85%
while in aptl questions the correct answer is 85-90%

So which one is correct? or most correct?

Specaircrew 17th Aug 2021 21:52

All the multi engine jets that I've flown are definitely in the 85-90% RPM band with the possible exception of the Vulcan which was so overpowered that long range cruise power, as I recall, was slightly less ;-) Of course the person that set the question may live in the theoretical rather than the real world, however my ' Boys Book of Aeroplanes'(AP3456) states that turbojet aircraft cruise using approx 90% of max thrust for the best range.

Jet engines are more efficient at high altitude and high rpm because of better SFC.

When I sat my exams 2017-18, some subjects used 27 ft/hPa and others used 30.

Just so long as we all keep in mind that both are wrong except for the particular Hp values where they are correct (around 3000 ft).

For interest, I put some stuff which you might find relevant at the following link

Bob Tait's Aviation Theory School - DenAlt... 1 Degree C = 120 feet and also = 500 feet. WTF? - Bob Tait's Aviation Theory School Forums

which includes a link to another thread which has a graphic which may be useful

Bob Tait's Aviation Theory School - Altimetry Rates - Bob Tait's Aviation Theory School Forums

Some of the fanatical support for 30 ft/hPa I see around the traps beggars belief ...

Mass and balance
A twin engine aeroplane is certified for a MSTOM and a MSLM of 58 000 kg and
55 000 kg respectfully. What is the limiting take-off mass for the aeroplane?
PLTOM 61 000 kg
PLLM 54 000 kg
MZFM 36 000 kg
Operating mass 55 000 kg
Trip fuel 36 000 kg
Alternative fuel 500 kg
Final reserve 500 kg
Flight duration 3 hours
Fuel consumption 500 kg per hour

What is the maximum take-off mass given:
MSTOM 43 000 kg
MSLM 35 000 kg
PLLM 33 000 kg
MZFM 31 000 kg
DOM 19 000 kg
Total Fuel capacity 12 500 kg
Maximum Trip Fuel 9000 kg
Contingency fuel 1000 kg
Alternate fuel 500 kg

Unable to figure out a clear methodology to solve these questions, unless solution is seen. Do i need a basic table reconstruct and how should it be ?

Tharaka737 28th Sep 2021 15:28

use this to understand the basic principle
This will help you for a lot of questions.

ashdaviator 29th Sep 2021 14:34

Already using this. but may be need more practice with this to get correct flow in solutions. Thanks a ton for sharing
