    Q13911

    Just a query, the question below asks about headwind component, answer should be A. Yet the explanation gives it as D.
    I fully understand the difference if an approved measuring device is available, but as the question does not state that there is, how can answer D be correct?

    Question: In performance class 1 when there is a head wind component, an operator, when calculating take-off performance may take into account not:

    A. more than 50% of the reported headwind component
    B. less than 50% of the reported headwind component
    C. more than 150% of the reported headwind component
    D. more than 80% of the reported headwind component

    Yours
    Confused

    Hi frog1pilot,

    It is ambiguous and you are right, no mention of approved wind measuring devices does tend to point to the 'more than 50%' answer, however we believe that the answer marked as the correct one is the one they are looking for.
