Upon your preflight evaluation of weather, the forecasts you reference state there is an unstable air mass approaching your location. … Which weather phenomenon is always associated with a thunderstorm? Lightning. Which is considered to be the most hazardous condition when flying an sUAS in the vicinity of thunderstorms?
Which type of weather phenomenon that may concern a remote pilot is common among cold fronts?
Which type of weather phenomenon that may concern a remote pilot is common among cold fronts? Thunderstorms and heavy rain. (Thunderstorms and heavy rain are common, although not always, associated with cold fronts.)
In which environment is ice most likely to have the highest accumulation rate on sUAS?
In which environment is ice mostly likely to have the highest accumulation rate on your sUAS? bumpy, turbulent air.
In what stage are thunderstorms the strongest?
The mature stage is the most likely time for hail, heavy rain, frequent lightning, strong winds, and tornadoes. Eventually, a large amount of precipitation is produced and the updraft is overcome by the downdraft beginning the dissipating stage.
What are characteristics of a moist unstable air mass?
What are characteristics of a moist, unstable air mass? Turbulence and showery precipitation.
What types of surfaces are most likely to see the first signs of ice accumulation?
The first sign of ice accretion in flight is generally found on the pitot tube, if it is visible, or in small, narrow exposed areas. Icing can be difficult to identify on the flat upper wing surface.
What is an operational consideration if you fly into rain which freezes?
What is an operational consideration if you fly into rain which freezes on impact? Temperatures are above freezing at some higher altitude. reduce lift by as much as 30 percent and increase drag by 40 percent.
Where is the strongest turbulence in the jet stream found?
Turbulence is located along strong isotach gradient zones. Most often, turbulence is located on poleward side of cyclonic jet stream. Conversely, turbulence is often located on equatorward side of the anticyclonic jet stream.
What are the 4 types of thunderstorms?
There are four main types of thunderstorms: single-cell, multi-cell, squall line (also called multi-cell line) and supercell.
Why do thunderstorms happen at night?
Very few know why thunderstorms occur at night. At night the air cools rapidly. However the air near the ground doesn’t cool as fast because it is more humid/ contains more moisture than the air higher up.
