ATPL Radio Aids VIVA Question asked on 17/09/2013 at Delhi 1) which aircraft are you flying?

What radio aids you 2) explain difference between DVOR and VOR 3) How site error is removed in DVOR? 4) explain Doppler principle 5) how NDB works explain with diagram 6) how ADF works? Lots of question on loop aerial 7) explain loop aerial theory with diagram for ADF what's EGPWS? 9) how EGPWS works and can give u terrain information 10) explain all modes of EGPWS 11) mode 1 of EGPWS effective upto what height 12) what is GPS and what information you will receive 13) why you need more than one satellite to know your ram 14) what is ILS and what are the errors of ILS? 15) what is false glide slope? have in your airplane

which is ahead of u in GPS signal position explain with diag

These were the question asked to me.....some questions which were asked to other pilots 1) what is TCAS ? 2) if 4-5 aircraft in collision course how many aircraft will get RA? 3) how many aircraft TCAS can display 4) you are getting wind shear, RA, and GPWS at same time how and which will you prioritise and why? 5) NDB errors 6) GPS errors

Basic principles of radio waves, propagation. Diff b/w gpws and egpws, vor dvor , principles of adf, vor, ils their limiations and errors.

The following questions were asked to me this time:1) What is latitude, longitude, rhumb line? 2) What is earth's compression? 3) What is orthomorphism? 4) What is convergency?formula? 5) Tell me everything you know about mercator and lambert projection? (explain e verything construction, properties, shapes of rhumb line, G.C., scale variation etc) 6) What is transverse and oblique mercator? 7) What is GPS? 8) There was a VOR approach plate, was asked to brief him the approach. What is the MSA, FAF? MSA was 2600', he asked if coming inbound ATC clears you to descend to 2600' at 26nm would you descend?(I said yes i would descend as i am coming inbound i will enter the msa shortly. I dont know if its correct because technically msa clear s obstacles uptill 25nm only ) Tell me the missed approach procedure of this approach. 9) He took an enroute chart and asked me to locate a particular location (jodhpu r) in the chart? (ans. locate it by opening the page where the page nos are writ ten across the location name, eg. jodhpur pg7c etc they want to see you do this) And what are the standard parallels of this chart?

If a communication failure is experienced on an IFR flight in IMC, the pilot sh General Navigation Ques1 What is INS and IRS differences ? how do they help a pilot in terms of nav igation. Ques2 How does the GPS work ? Is a GPS route a rumb line or a great circle. Whic h out of the rumb line and the great circle changes heading? Ques3 In RVSM airspace if one of your required instruements for RVSm fail can yo u still fly in RVSM airspace? (NO) also what is the way to get out of the RVSM airspace if your radio is not functioning and you don t have contact with the atc. Ques4 Performace questions on various speeds cg is better in terms for navigation was also asked if rear cg or forward
