I could gather witnesses to prove that I did not voluntarily hand over the documents to the inspector. You could have turned on your voice recorder as evidence.

2. You are flying a corporate turboprop from Miami to Chicago under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). Your course takes you through a cold front with imbedded thunderstorms. ATC clears you to climb and maintain Flight Level (FL) 190. You encounter moderate to occasionally severe turbulence in strong updrafts and downdrafts along the front. You have slowed the aircraft to its turbulence penetration speed to avoid overstressing the airframe when you encounter the strongest updraft yet just as you are approaching your assigned altitude. You are using all of your skill and knowledge trying to arrest your ascent without exceeding the aircraft’s turbulence penetration speed, but the updraft carries you above your assigned altitude. Just then, the controller calls and instructs you to “say altitude.” Glancing at the encoding altimeter, you see that you are at FL 200 and have just begun a gradual descent with the power levers retarded to flight idle. You cannot descend more rapidly without exceeding turbulence penetration speed and thereby risking structural failure if more turbulence is encountered. a. If you were expecting to encounter turbulence or updrafts and downdrafts that might make altitude holding difficult while traversing this area of bad weather, what could you have done before reaching the area to give yourself more vertical maneuvering room? Air traffic control will be notified of the difficulties expected to be maintained at an appropriate altitude due to turbulence penetration. By communicating with air traffic control, controllers will understand the situation and are more likely to provide more traffic isolation. Otherwise, I will ask for another altitude to avoid turbulence. b. As a result of the altitude deviation, what actions will you take after landing? Why? I will go ahead submit a NASA report because of the possibility of exempting me from FAR violations. I won't talk about historical events until I get advice from a lawyer. 3. You are the pilot in command of a light twin flying VFR on a cross-country flight with radar flight following to an unfamiliar area. Visual Meteorological Conditions (VMC) prevail, though visibility is marginal at 3 to 5 miles. ATC advises you that your destination airport, an uncontrolled field, is “12 o’clock and 10 miles.” Moments later, you see an airport straight ahead with the expected runway orientation, report the airport in sight, and land. Then you realize you’ve landed at the wrong airport and that your destination is several miles beyond this one. a. What will you do and why? My first task is to submit an air safety report to NASA within 10 days. This will help stop or cancel my pilot's license. I will also consult with my lawyer because the FAA is concerned about my ability and may be subject to re-examination.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
