Is it safe and legal to land?Conditions: Known and forecast icing conditions from SFC – 5000. AIRMET For MOD ICING in the area.Local area PIREP from a B90 20 minutes ago, Light Mixed icing at 4000 feet, (cloud tops 4500 ft) on departure from KABI.METAR KABI 141203Z 02004KT 1/4SM R35R/P2200FT/U FZFG OVC002 M05/M05 A3005 RMK AO2 SLP176 FZRANOA. NO, an Icing AIRMET is always a No-Go - will need to divert.B. YES, it is safe and legal to land but I should have all Anti-ice/ De-ice systems ON, watching ice accumulation and be prepared for a missed approach.C. NO, visibility is 1/4SM at the airport - will need to divert.D. NO, Freezing Fog is a No-Go. - will need to divert. Departing KDFW to KTYR in a 675shp C208 Caravan in February, clouds are overcast at 3000ft across East Texas and an AIRMET is issued for MODERATE ICE above 5000ft over your route of flight. An aircraft PIREP from a B737 recently departed KDAL headed eastbound reports trace icing at 5500ft through 6500ft on climb and sky clear above 7000Ft. Your aircraft Empty weight is 4784lbs Crew 220lbs Fuel 1100lbs. UPS walks up to you and asks how much freight can you carry today? You answer:A. "Cannot depart due to icing enroute - I'm cancelling the flight."B. "We can depart and can carry up to 2681 lbs of Cargo"C. "We can depart and can carry up to 2481 lbs of Cargo"D. "Martinaire is contracted to take up to 3000 lbs of Cargo" On an ILS Approach during icing season flying a stabilized approach at 120 knots and 10 degrees flap setting, and in IMC, upon reaching DA (200ft HAT) you see the runway and decide to continue with the landing. As you reduce the power you hear an audible warning and a "BELOW ICING MIN SPD" Annunciator is flashing amber. What do you do?A. Immediately execute a missed approachB. Martinaire C208 Caravans do not have this systemC. Continue with the landing but in this position it is recommended to NOT Press the Annunciator to silence the alarm until you are on the groundD. Press the Annunciator to silence the alarm You are landing at an airport in Pennsylvania (KMDT) during the winter months, you have accumulated moderate mixed icing on the airframe and you are on final approach to land. What airspeed and flap setting should you use crossing the threshold at 50ft?A. 120 knots or slower (stabilized) and 20 degrees flap.B. 90 knots or faster and 30 degrees of flap to land as short as possible.C. 100 knots maximum and 20 degrees of flap.D. 120 knots or faster (stabilized) and 10 degrees of flap. You are about to depart KAVP (Wilkes-barre/Scranton, PA) landing at KMDT (Harrisburg, PA) during the winter months and have a take-off weight of 8250lbs. Planned fuel burn is 250lbs. KMDT METAR 31003KT 1/2SM -SN OVC003 M04/M07 A2992. You are expecting light icing on approach into KMDT. What is your landing distance required at KMDT planning to use 10 degrees flap on final approach and landing? - 675shp C208B (Round up to 2000ft PA and 0 degrees C to be conservative)A. 3549 ft total distance requiredB. 1600 ft total distance requriedC. 1690 ft total distance requiredD. 880 ft total distance requiredE. 4120 ft total distance required Decoding the following METAR - What type of precipitation is present and what time did it begin? METAR KMKL 021250Z 33018KT 290V360 1/2SM R31/2600FT SN BLSN FG VV008 00/M03 A2991 RMK AO2 RAESNB42 SLPNO T00111032A. Moderate Snow, Blowing Snow and Fog - Began at 1032am local timeB. Moderate Snow, Blowing Snow and Fog - Began at 1250 ZuluC. Moderate Snow, Blowing Snow and Fog - Began at 1242 ZuluD. Moderate Snow, Blowing Light Snow and Fog - Began at 1250 Zulu Flying an FAR 135 Cargo flight, how much runway can Martinaire plan to use at a destination airport?A. Must be able to complete a full stop landing within 60% of the available runway distance.B. Must be able to complete a full stop landing within 70% of the available runway distance.C. Must be able to complete a full stop landing within All (or 100%) of the useable and available runway distance.D. Must be able to complete a full stop landing within 80% of the available runway distance.E. There is no regulation applicable to Martinaire on landing distances required/ available. As long as the C208 POH Landing Performance charts show we are good. In the C208B Caravan, during flight, a RED Annunciator illuminates and you confirm the situation is not a false alarm. Remember your top priority is to Fly-the-plane! After following the appropriate Emergency Checklist items, Should you declare an Emergency to ATC?A. If the aircraft is still flying, no need, just land safely. There will be too much paperwork involved.B. Only when the engine actually fails, then I might declare and emergency.C. It is recommended to declare an emergency so I have the help of ATC and emergency services will be on standby upon landing should I need them.D. The best Pilots never declare emergencies. It will make me look bad. UPS would like to move extra cargo to KPSN late at night. Weather across East Texas is marginal. You have determined that you need to file an alternate and you're looking at KTYR as an option. Your aircraft is equipped with a KLN89B GPS. KTYR tower is closed this late at night. Winds at both KPSN and KTYR are 040/15kts. What is the lowest applicable Weather Minimums to file KTYR as an Alternate?A. Using the 1 Nav Rule = 600 - 1 3/4 smB. Using the 2 Nav Rule = 600 - 1 1/4 smC. Using the 1 Nav Rule = 800 - 1 3/4 smD. Using the 2 Nav Rule = 600 - 1 1/2 smE. We can use the ILS to land so we can use 200 - 3/4 smF. Using the 2 Nav Rule = 600 - 2 smG. 2000 foot ceiling and 3 sm visibility exisitng 1 hr before and after the ETA. You are flying a C208B aircraft equipped with a KLN89B GPS. Your destination has only RNAV Approaches available, and you have determined you need to file an Alternate. You find an airport nearby that also only has RNAV Approaches available. Can you file this nearby airport as an Alternate?YESNO All Martinaire Pilots must check-in with Dispatch by phone call at least 60 mins prior to scheduled departure for both AM and PM Operations.TRUEFALSE You are departing IFR from KRDU. Runway 23L is in use and expected for take-off. Aircraft are landing 23R. Both 23L and 23R are reporting conditions of RVR2000ft visibility. Can you legally and safely depart?YESNO Time is Up!Time's up Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
