  18. An ARTCC is a facility established to provide air traffic control (ATC) service to aircraft operating on visual flight rules (VFR) flight plans within controlled airspace, principally during the en route phase of flight.
  19. Wind speeds in a METAR are determined by the average wind speed over a 5-minute period.

  21. Which of the following is true regarding convective turbulence:
  22. The ATCSCC’s main mission is to provide commercial aviation with the fastest, most fuel-efficient route.
  23. Propagation is the component of storm motion due to individual cells moving with the average wind throughout the vertical depth of the cumulonimbus cloud.
  24. In the United States, hail is most common across the Great Plains region east of the Rocky Mountains.
  25. A __________ consists of a group of cells at various stages of their life cycle.

Set 2

  1. ________ ice is rough, milky, and opaque ice formed by the instantaneous freezing of small, super cooled water droplets after they strike the aircraft.
  2. A _____________ chart shows the distribution of sea level pressure, including the positions of highs, lows, ridges, and troughs, and the location and character of fronts and various boundaries, such as drylines, outflow boundaries, and sea breeze fronts.
