B Examine a system or procedure C Establish radio contact with... D Wait and I will call you Explanation: Monitor is used to describe listening to a frequency that is broadcasting such as ATIS or volmet. Question 40: What does the instruction:"Fastair 345 standby 118.9 for TOWER" mean: A Fastair 345 should listen on frequency 118.9 on which TOWER will initiate further communications B Fastair 345 should change frequency to 118.9, on which aerodrome data are being broadcast C Fastair 345 should standby on the current frequency D Fastair 345 should contact TOWER on 118.9 Explanation: An aircraft may be asked to "Standby" on a frequency to reduce radio clutter at busy times, or at busy airports. It means that the process of handover to a new station is simplified. Question 41: Fastair 345 has been instructed to contact Stephenville ARRIVAL on frequency 118.0. What is the correct way to indicate it will follow this instruction: A 118.0 Fastair 345 B Stephenville ARRIVAL Fastair 345 C Changing to ARRIVAL Fastair 345 D Changing over Fastair 345 Explanation: When acknowledging an instruction repeat the instruction and your callsign. The answer given to the question is what the examiners want. Question 42: Which phraseology shall a pilot use if he receives an instruction from ATC which he cannot carry out: A Unable to comply B Disregard C Negative instruction D Impossible to make it Explanation: The pilot may also wish to say why he is unable to comply, for example: ATC - "Havoc 1234, turn left heading 095." Aircraft - "Unable to comply due weather, Havoc 1234."

Question 43: What is the radiotelephony call sign for the aeronautical station indicating area control centre (no radar): A ...CONTROL B ...RADAR C ...APPROACH D ...CENTRE Explanation: This is a tricky question. There are lots of stations with the call sign "Control" that DO have radar (London Control, for example). However, by a process of elimination there can be no other answer. APPROACH is not used for an area control centre; RADAR clearly has a radar; and the call sign CENTRE is not on the official ICAO list of aeronautical call signs. Question 44: What is the radiotelephony call sign for the aeronautical station indicating approach control radar departures: A ...DEPARTURE B ...RADAR C ...APPROACH D ...CONTROL Explanation: The clue is in the question! APPROACH does not necessarily have a radar; RADAR is used as a generic call sign and is not departure/approach specific; CONTROL is used for an area control centre and not departure/approach control.
