  1. The magnetic compass is reliable only when:
    1. The wings are level
    2. The airplane is sitting still on the ground
    3. The is no turbulence
    4. All of the above
  2. Errors in the magnetic compass are caused by:
    1. Magnetic variation
    2. Compass deviation
    3. Magnetic dip
    4. Isogonic lines
  3. Errors in the magnetic compass are at a minimum:
    1. In North America
    2. At the equator
    3. At the North and South poles
    4. The magnetic compass is always in error
  4. In the Montreal area (45° North), accelerating on an eastbound heading will cause the magnetic compass to swing. The movement will be:
    1. Toward North, and smaller numbers
    2. Toward North, and larger numbers
    3. Toward South, and larger numbers
    4. Toward South, and smaller numbers
  5. In the Montreal area (45° North), starting a right turn from a northbound heading will cause the magnetic compass to:
    1. Swing to temporarily show more a westerly heading
    2. Eventually catch up
    3. Lag the turn
    4. All of the above
  6. In icing conditions pitot heat will improve the operation of:
    1. The vertical speed indicator
    2. The airspeed indicator
    3. The altimeter
    4. All of the above
