1. Who to use null meter in avr panel?

2. Can you miss the clearance limit and loose commands from the Air Craft Officer?

Yes, there is a policy and procedure to be followed for the
missing clearance limit, so a Pilot can leave and reach a
different altitude for sometime within the limit and should
come back to the proper clearance limit once things are in
control. This time limit is only as per the procedure in the
manual.

3. Without Air Traffic Control, what is the minimum descent rate can descend the plane?

A Pilot can descend up to 500” bare minimum, without
informing the ATC (Air Traffic Controller) and this is only
during an exceptional cases. However, it's always better to
be in regular touch with the Air Traffic Controller and to
keep him informed about the descent rate. This will not have
any traffic problems during landing in the runway.

4. When pilot is assigned a speed, how much can one deviate from that speed?

Complying and following the actual speed adjustment
policies, a pilot can run and indicate plus or minus 10
knots or 0.02 mach number of specified speed. Its always
better to keep the land air officer in the loop before
adjusting the air speed. Exceptions are always there to meet
the emergency requirement.

5. Explain When can one deviate from any flight rules and regulations?

Chief Pilot in command can deviate from rules and
regulations during emergency period; he can do it to get the
plane back to the normalcy or to meet the expected
requirement of the emergency.

6. Explain What would you do if your Captain is not following the instructions properly?

Refer to your plane manual and discuss the same with your
client and ensure you make him understand the procedures and
rules. If he does not respond, you will call your concerned
aircraft officer at the airport and escalate and make sure
your voice frequency is recorded.

7. Tell me How would you handle if your co-worker is not co-operating with you?

Talk to your co-worker directly and explain him that you are
having a problem working with him and make him understand
the situation, if he is not willing to listen or not
co-operating, then direct the issue to chief pilot.

space travel, aviation history, and aerospace industry and
hence decided to get into this field.

14. Tell me What is the requirement to become a Professional Engineer (PE) in the field of Aerospace?

Professional Engineer license is required for people who
aspire to go in as officially approved engineer. The design
specification is done by self employed people or working in
small business. General aerospace engineers work for
government or for big companies and hence few people are not
very keen on becoming PE's. To become a PE one has to pass
an exam on fundamentals of engineering which takes alot of
hours to gruel and work under a licensed PE for about four
years. Also they have to grow through a principle and
practice of engineering exam which requires about 8 hours.

2)what happens if networking cable & power cable run parallel to each other, eventhough they run in a seperate
condute pipes?

POWER CABLE IS HAVING SOME HIGH MAGNITUDE, IF THE SIGNAL
CABLE YOU ARE PLACING NEARER TO THE POWER CABLE, DUE TO THE
MAGNITUDE (MITUAL INDDUCTANCE) THAT DATA CABLES ARE GETTING
SOME SIGNAL FROM THE POWER CABLE.YOU REMEMBER THAT DATA
CABLE SIGNAL FROM 1.5 VOLT TO 12 V HIGHLY SENSETIVE.THAT
MAGNITUDE ENOUGH TO GENERATE THE TRIGGER VOLTAGE ON DATA
CABLE.THEN SOME WRONG FUNCTION WILL HAPPEN INTO THAT
RELATER CIRCUITS.

29. How the shockwave produced in aerofoil,and actually what happen that region?

Shaock Only at supersonic speed

Message(about aircraft prasence downstream) waves go
upstream at the speed of sound.

But Aircraft goes more than the speed of sound.(supersonic)

Before upstream air get the message about aircraft prasence,
air encouter the aircraft.
No time to adjust the airflow,Hence Shock!

understand the concept that how to fly:-)
obvioulsy in every college aero students are the best one's
in all disciplines

34. Rotation of dc shunt motor is revers by using 2
methods,which method is best and why?

reversing the armature terminal is better & applied in
practice.this is becoz of the following drawbacks in field
reversing method.
* high voltage build-up during reversing the field terminal
which is high enough to puncture the insulation of field
coil.

* high flash-over will occur.

* during reversal, the armature current should be limited
to the rated value,otherwise it will draw twice the time of
starting current.we can insert the external resistance to
limit the current while reversing the armature
terminal.whereas,in field reversal we cannot give any
provision to limit armature over current.
