I’m back again with another quiz, this time a 10 question multiple-choice review. This is a brief refresher of items that might come up on the check ride. It includes a review of some airport signs and markings and VFR chart items. The 10th question pertains to sport pilot cross country requirements – this is different for a private pilot certificate.
