Question 1:    How many prohibited areas are there in the US?

Question 2:    What is a "Jesus bolt"?

Question 3:    The SR-71 was (is) typically flown at Mach 3.0 or 3.15, although in reality the engines are quite capable of much greater speeds. Why isnīt it flown any faster than this?

Question 4:    True or false:  It is possible for a parachutist in free-fall to achieve a great enough velocity to break the sound barrier?

Question 5:    We all know about best glide speed, but if you had an engine failure, were at a significant height right above your intended point of landing, and wanted to buy some more time, to what other speed might you trim up? (Thatīs a hint.)

Question 6:    Youīre at an airport with a standard wind sock. You notice the wind picking up and see the wind sock become extended straight out, losing its previous bend in the middle. What is the wind velocity?

Question 7:    To make the shortest possible takeoff, what option is available to a pilot that does NOT involve changing the weight, control surface configuration, or applied power?

Question 8:    What is the highest cloud type?

Question 11:   In an inverted spin, should you apply opposite rudder using the turn needle, the turn coordinator, the slip/skid ball, or any one of the three?
