(C) Localizer antenna is installed at 300 m from the other end of the runway
(D) Glide slope antenna is installed at the centre of the runway about 150 m on one side

2. As per UK design criteria, if LCN of aircraft is between 1.25 to 1.5 times the LCN of pavement, then the number of movements allowed are
(A) Zero
(B) 300
(C) 3000
(D) Unrestricted

3. Effective length of a runway is the distance between
(A) Ends of the runway
(B) Point of intersection of the obstruction clearance line and the extended plane of the runway surface, and the other end of the runway
(C) Point of intersection of the glide path and the extended plane of the runway surface and the other end of the runway
(D) Ends of the clear way on either side

4. Consider the following statements: Wind rose diagram is used for the purposes of
• 1. Runway orientation
• 2. Estimating the runway capacity
• 3. Geometric design of holding apron of these statements
(A) 1 and 2 are correct
(B) 2 and 3 are correct
(C) 1 and 3 are correct
(D) 1 alone is correct

5. The length of a runway under standard atmospheric conditions is 1800 m. If the actual reduced level of the site is 1200 m, the design length of the runway is
(A) 2360 m
(B) 2460 m
(C) 2560 m
(D) 2660 m

6. In approach areas of runways equipped with instrumental landing facilities any object within 4.5 km distance from runway end shall be considered as an obstruction if its height is more than
(A) 20 m
(B) 30 m
(C) 45 m
(D) 51 m

7. Pick up the correct statement from the following:
(A) Tar concrete pavements are suitable if fuel spillage occurs
(B) Rubberized tar concrete hot blast as well as spillage
(C) Epoxy asphalt concrete sets in very small time
(D) All the above

8. The engine failure case for determining the basic runway length may require
(A) Only clearway
(B) Only stop way
(C) Either a clearway or a stop-way
(D) Either a clearway or a stop-way or both

9. The maximum value of the angle of turning of the nose gear large jet aircrafts, is limited to
(A) 20°
(B) 30°
(C) 45°
(D) 60°

10. Assertion A : Airport capacity during IFR conditions is usually less than that during VFR conditions.
Reason R: During clear weather condition (VFR), the aircrafts on final approach to runway can be spaced closer during poor visibility conditions.
