Which statement best defines hypoxia?
What is the most effective way to use the eyes during night flight?
What is it often called when a pilot pushes his or her capabilities and the aircraft’s limits by trying to maintain visual contact with the terrain in low visibility and ceiling?
Scud running is when a pilot flies lower and lower “ducking under” clouds to try and maintain visual contact with the ground.
Eye movements during daytime collision avoidance scanning should ___________.
Most midair collision accidents occur during _________.
It is the responsibility of the pilot and crew to report a near midair collision as a result of proximity of at least ____________.

If an airplane weighs 2,400lbs, what would the airplane’s structure be required to support in a 60 degree bank turn while maintaining altitude?
A known value you’ll want to remember as a pilot, is that in a 60 degree bank turn, if you are pulling back on the controls to maintain altitude, then you are under 2G’s or two times the force of gravity. If the airplane weighs 2,400lbs on the ground (anything sitting on the ground is under the force of 1G as explained by Newton) then it’s structure must support 4,800lbs in a 2G maneuver like a 60 degree bank turn.
The four forces acting on an airplane in flight are _______.
A positive load factor of 2g at 80mph would cause the airplane to _________.
