What aircraft is this?
I love this kind of tests, please keep them coming.
Okay, some of these were ridiculously difficult. S2B or S2C - really? And only Citation drivers are gonna know which iteration of CJ is which from the panel. Nonetheless, I enjoy this kind of challenge as well. It would be nice to know how my score stacks up against others. Can't you include averages or something with the final score?
I missed 2. The TBM700 and the Fokker D Vii. Glass cockpits look so much alike. I honestly guessed at a few others and got them correct. The C-130 was easy to pick out since it has thrust levers but also prop rpm controls, (Also 4 separate rows of engine gauges rules out the B-757. These are fun. Please keep them coming.
Happy see that someone down at Bonnier read either m, or someone else's email, asking for some up-to-date quizzes. This after the same five question IFR quiz was up on the website for three years or more.
Anyone pilot who passed one or more licensing exams would recognize this quiz's classic question and answer format: two of four choices can be easily eliminated, leaving just two good possibilities but a fairly obvious flaw in one of the two remaining answers. On question 1, for example, the 757 can be quickly eliminated because it has only two sets of engine gauges and they have EFIS and EICAS. The 707 was designed way to early to have a flat screen. The DC-8 can be ruled out because, being a jet, it had no prop levers.
I thought a few questions were a bit dodgy. Presumably the two Pitts have different cowling inlet designs. The old-fashioned guns atop the nose revealed the Fokker D-VII. The two Pitts, the F-14 and the CJ2 were probably the most difficult answers for most people, I would think.
My sincere thanks to FLYING for finally getting some interesting quizzes up on the website. Please keep them coming. I mean, how many hundreds or even thousands of potential questions exist on the private, commercial, multi-engine, IFR and ATP study guides? There should be a virtually endless supply of quiz material. And if you recycle each quiz every five years or so, most people will have forgotten the answers so they should enjoy them just as much the second time around.
