d) giving you a good feel for the Glider
e) c and d above

13. You had two lessons and some ground handling (kiting) exercise. You

a) are ready to fly solo and take home your equipment
b) most likely need more lessons
c) are ready to fly solo but must stay below 300 feet
d) none of the above

14. You live downtown in a large city and would like to fly over your apartment to take a picture.

a) Make sure to safety your camera
b) if you run out of gas and have to land you might get arrested
c) That's illegal because you are flying over a "congested area"
d) This would be an unsafe  practice
e) It's o.k.. as long as you stay out of restricted airspace
f) b, c and d above

15. Your launch area is clear for 500 feet and the wind is blowing straight down the field. At the end of the runway there are some 80 foot tall trees. You have launched and are coming up on the trees just below the tops. You should

a) increase power so you can climb over the trees
b) expect rotor and sinking air and make a turn away from the trees
c) cut the power and make a sharp 180 degree turn to  avoid the trees
d) aim for a large branch and hold on when you hit
e) find a better field
f) b and e above

16. You are flying in strong conditions with lift and sink. The sink is as high as 1000 fpm.

a) You should be able to climb through it with full power
b) You should look for easier flying conditions as a PPG 2
c) You may not be able to climb while in the sink
d) As long as you stay above 1000 feet there is no problem
e) a and d above
f) b and c above

e) c and d above

19. Pulling a lot of brake while under full power is

a) dangerous and may accidentally stall the Glider
b) good for increased pressure in the Glider

c) favor right turns
d) keep an open path to the right of the launch area
e) use a lot of brake for left turns
f) c and d above

21. You are launching and have just lifted off. If you pick up your feet right away, you
