Question Bank

The download below is a pdf file with 260 questions typical of the CAA written examination for the Aeronautical Radio Telephony Certificates. Answers are not provided, but below each question is a reference of where in “The Pilot’s Radio Handbook” the answer can be found. The file will open in a new tab.

I am grateful to everybody who supplied questions, notably to Neil Thomas, previously of Cranfield Aviation.

I also appreciate readers’ input about questions, especially those to which the answers might not be mentioned in “The Pilot’s Radio Handbook”.
