2 questions for the forum

Just 2 questions..
1. If the word "charter" appears in a fuel question, do I automatically include a variable reserve of 15%?
2. For EOD questions, should I always assume and calculate that the acft must be in the cct area 10 minutes before EOD and use that time as the time to work backwards from to get the latest departure time from the place of departure?
Exam Tuesday week!
Many thanks for previous help. It is much appreciated.

If a question specifies a charter flight then you certainly do need to include the variable reserve. The exam assumes you are complying with the recommendations of the CAAP 234.
As far as the 10 minutes is concerned, if a question asks for the hours of daylight 'available', then you need not consider the 10 minutes, because the 10 mins is available i.e. you are not illegal if you use it - but you must not PLAN to use it.
On the other hand, if a questions asked how many hours of daylight are available for PLANNING a flight, then you must consider the 10 mins.
