Let's look at even more of the most challenging Private Pilot Test questions. You can also access the full FlightInsight Test Bank to get ready for the real thing! For now, let's have an in-depth look at another five questions that give all of us the most trouble: Question 1 (Refer to the Figure) Determine the total distance required to land over a 50-foot obstacle.
Pressure altitude = 5,000 ft
Headwind = 8 kts
Temperature = 41°F
Runway = Hard surface · 837 feet. · 956 fe
Does the mixture knob in your cockpit confuse you? Most of the time in training, it seems like the other knobs like throttle and carb heat get all the attention while the red knob on the right gets just the standard "mixture full rich" check prior to takeoff. Setting the mixture properly is just as important as throttle and other settings and goes a long way toward long term care of your engine.
