Gen Nav questions asked at Bombay today:
1. Explain RVSM. Is TCAS mandatory? If you were to fly from Bombay to London how would you find out which airspaces mandatorily require you to have TCAS?
2. Looking at the Sunrise/Sunset table in the Jepp Manual please get the sunrise time in Bombay for today? Is this time LMT, UTC, or IST? Please find the IST timing
3. Explain Grid MORA, Symbols - RVSM, FIR boundary, WX frequency, and Airspaces

a question from aviation tire..
For a given set of ionospheric conditions, as the frequency of an HF signal is increased:
A) the size of the dead space increases due solely to the decreasing minimum skip distance.
B) the size of the dead space decreases because the surface wave coverage decreases, and the minimum skip distance decreases.
c) the size of the dead space increases due solely to the increasing minimum skip distance.
D) the size of the dead space increases because the surface wave coverage decreases, and the minimum skip distance increases.

the answer given is c is not D?

Once all the ATPL papers are cleared, including the Orals, how do we go about getting the Frozen ATPL licence from DGCA. Is there a fee to be paid? Will they issue a new ATPL book or is it simply endorsed on our CPL book.

If there is one book you would suggest to clear the written Nav and Radio Aids, what would it be.

Are the Keith Williams question bank books still relevant these days. Have question come from thes sets?

For Air Reg and Met, is it enough to study from the books published by Himalaya publications, available at the New English bookstore? Someone please advise.

Is it possible to give the Orals first and the written later?

@avicon
your question regarding books has been addressed before. (zillions of times)

no you can't give the orals before the written.

as for the rest, i did not find any questions from keith william in the last radio aids paper. they weren't from oxford either but if your concepts are clear you need not worry.

i don't think dgca issues any thing as frozen ATPL or even recognizes this for the matter. i'm not very sure about this though, someone here can probably let us know.

There is no such thing as Frozen ATPL issued by DGCA and nor the term Frozen ATPL mentioned in the CAR.
Written and orals + 1500hrs = ATPL licence -- Within 5 yrs

Well if a frozen ATPL is not recognised by the DGCA why is everyone with just a CPL and 200 hrs under their belts so eager to get the ATPL out of the way.

Isn't it better to clear the exams when you have a job in the airlines and have gained better understanding of the aspects of Navigation, radio aids etc than just rote-learn them now just for the sake of clearing the exams.

thanks planeboy777

avicon, the reason people are clearing ATPL is because not only it keeps them closer to their theory subjects but also gets them a stronger hold over it. it also keeps you occupied if you don't have much to do
