It’s Tuesday again, and that means another installment of Testing Tuesday at Smart Flight Training!
I hope these question and answer sessions are helpful for you, but I’ll be honest: I’m doing these for myself, too. I needed to continue to work on my CFII (Certificated Flight Instructor – Instrument) knowledge, and this seems as good a place as any to make sure my knowledge is strong as I move closer to that goal that, I’ll admit, I’ve already missed the deadline I set for myself.
With that said, let’s get on to today’s question:
What minimum aircraft equipment is required for operation within class C airspace?
- Two way communications and Mode C transponder
- Two way communications
- Transponder and DME
Well, hopefully this Testing Tuesday post was helpful. This was a question I myself missed when I was originally studying for my Instrument Rating knowledge test, so it was good to review this and make sure I don’t miss it again and can teach it to my future instrument students accurately and well.
Please let us know what you think about our Testing Tuesdays, and let us know if you have a question you would like answered – maybe something you missed on your own knowledge tests along the way, or something you were asked during the oral portion of a checkride. Let’s make this more social, more interactive, more interesting! Try to stump me, try to stump the rest of my readers! You shouldn’t have much trouble stumping me, but my readers are smart, so that will not be an easy task!
