The questions below are only a 'taster' set. This website is almost certainly the best of the 'free' FAA test prep sites and its questions and content can serve as a useful introduction to FAA tests. However, just like all such free sites, its content is neither complete nor up to date. If you study using only this site or sites like it, you will not be adequately prepared for your FAA written test nor will you really learn the material deeply to become a safe and efficient pilot or mechanic. More directly, if you rely only on this site or other 'free' resources, there is a good chance that you will fail your test. Don't cheat yourself by skimping on test prep by relying on 'free' sites, books with out of date content, weekend 'cram courses', or other counterproductive 'shortcuts'.

For far, far less than the cost of a single hour's flying you can get a Dauntless FAA Test Prep for PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, or Android that features actual, current questions and detailed, often illustated explanations maintained by a professional editorial team of instructors and examiners. Plus, it features lifetime free updates to that it will be ready for you when you're serious about passing that test. When this site and free sites like it were created, the FAA used to make all of the test questions publicly available. This is no longer the case and hasn't been for many years--it now requires a professional editorial team like that of the Dauntless / FAATest.com team to make a credible and complete test prep that keeps up with the FAA's very regular changes.

To learn the material and to pass the test, do as thousands of happy pilots and mechanics have and get a Dauntless FAA test prep to get access to the latest questions and content. Their apps are inexpensive, fast, and easy to use. Plus, they work at your pace and won't bore you to sleep like those ludicrously too-expensive DVD/video based preps will. We strongly encourage you to get a Dauntless FAA test prep app when you're serious about preparing for your exam. You'll be glad you did.

(Refer to figure 30.) Which ADF indication represents the aircraft tracking TO the station with a right crosswind?
A) 2.
B) 1.
C) 4.
During an approach to a stall, an increased load factor will cause the airplane to
A) be more difficult to control.
B) stall at a higher airspeed.
C) have a tendency to spin.
(Refer to figures 33 and 34.) Determine if the airplane weight and balance is within limits.
Front seat occupants..................415 lb

What is an advantage of a constant-speed propeller?
A) Permits the pilot to select the blade angle for the most efficient performance.
B) Permits the pilot to select and maintain a desired cruising speed.
C) Provides a smoother operation with stable RPM and eliminates vibrations.
(Refer to figures 33 and 34.) Upon landing, the front passenger (180 pounds) departs the airplane. A rear passenger (204 pounds) moves to the front passenger position. What effect does this have on the CG if the airplane weighed 2,690 pounds and the MOM/100 was 2,260 just prior to the passenger transfer?
A) The CG moves forward approximately 0.1 inch.
B) The CG moves forward approximately 3 inches.
C) The weight changes, but the CG is not affected.
The most frequent type of ground or surface-based temperature inversion is that which is produced by
A) warm air being lifted rapidly aloft in the vicinity of mountainous terrain.
B) terrestrial radiation on a clear, relatively still night.
C) the movement of colder air under warm air, or the movement of warm air over cold air.
(Refer to figure 21, area 2.) The elevation of the Chesapeake Regional Airport is
A) 360 feet.
B) 20 feet.
C) 36 feet.
When landing behind a large aircraft, the pilot should avoid wake turbulence by staying
A) above the large aircraft's final approach path and landing beyond the large aircraft's touchdown point.
B) above the large aircraft's final approach path and landing before the large aircraft's touchdown point.
C) below the large aircraft's final approach path and landing before the large aircraft's touchdown point.
One of the main functions of flaps during approach and landing is to
A) decrease the angle of descent without increasing the airspeed.
B) permit a touchdown at a higher indicated airspeed.
C) increase the angle of descent without increasing the airspeed.
