Just seeking some clarification on Q 21 from Sample Questions Set 1 out of the Air Law Book.
Refers to appendix 1.
It states you are to be taken as a passenger on a 2 hour positioning flight to pick up another aircraft for a charter flight as pilot in command. The charter flight will depart at 1000LMT. The latest time at which your tour of duty must end is?
Answer is down as 1700 which seems logical to include the 2 hour positioning flight as part of the FDP but I cannot find any reference to positioning flights or non flying duty related activities pre flight time. So would it not be 1900?
Another one while I’ve got you...
Q8 from Sample Qs set 3;
Asks “On a flight from tennant creek to Darwin, when would the carriage of survival equipment not be mandatory”
The answer is B - when you track via the highway corridor... and refers to CAR 252A and CAO 220.127.116.11 But no where in this docs nor in the section on DRAs in the ERSA saying anything of the sort. The CAO actually days survival equipment must be carried and I can’t see any exceptions? But I’m happy to be corrected!
7.1 An aircraft shall carry survival equipment for sustaining life appropriate to the area being overflown on the following flights:
(a) where the carriage of life rafts are required by paragraphs 5.2.1 and 5.2.2;
(b) during operations within or through the remote areas specified in Appendix III;
(c) on such other flights as may be directed by CASA.
And another; CPL sample Qs set 4.
Q4- Who is responsible for declaring a bush fire evacuation flight a mercy flight?
Answer is A) the local police
But the AIP section that is referenced in the questions states that it must be only declared by the PIC which is answer D.
One more; CPL sample Qs set 4.
Q 30 - For which of the following flights are passenger lists required
A all flights
B all flights over 50nm
C all aerial work flights
D all charter flights
Answer is given as D... and references CAO 18.104.22.168 which states “when passenger lists are carried on a charter or regular public transport flight etc etc” but does not stipulate that it is needed. Refer to CAR 139 and it would only require a passenger list if the aircraft was operating outside of an Australian territory...?
When passengers are carried on a charter or regular public transport flight, the operator or the operator’s representative shall compile a passenger list and leave it for retention at the aerodrome of departure.
