Hi everyone,

Just want to clear up a question in the book REVISION EXERCISE 5 P.299

Q10 - You are carrying out a DME arrival procedure into PARKES, NSW from overhead Bathurst NDB. Select the statement wich is correct regarding descent on this track-

a) You must reach a altitude of 3000ft by 9 DME PARKES
b) You must not descend below 3500 ft before 7 DME PARKES
c) You cannot descend below route LSALT of 6100 ft until within 25nm of PARKES
d) You must not be above 4000ft at 9 DME PARKES

answer = b

My question is shouldn't c) also be a correct answer?

cheers,

You are correct. There were indeed two correct answers. I have changed answer (c) to read
"You may descend to 3900ft at any point on the route from Bathurst to Parkes". That makes (c) incorrect.

Thanks for your feedback.
