Barron's Military Flight Aptitude Tests

Front Cover
Barrons Educational Series, 2007 - Study Aids - 640 pages
U.S. Air Force officer candidates, ROTC cadets, and others preparing to take military flight aptitude tests will find the information they’re looking for in this manual. They’ll also find six full-length practice tests with answers and explanations for all questions. That total gives applicants more practice tests than any other flight aptitude manual on the market. The tests are as follows: two practice AFOQT (Air Force Officer Qualifying Tests); two practice AFAST (Army Alternate Flight Aptitude Selection Tests); and two practice ASTB (Navy/Marine Corps/Coast Guard Aviation Selection Test Batteries). This manual also provides general descriptions and overviews of all three tests, plus practice and review questions in all test topics. The topics include language comprehension, mathematics, mechanical comprehension, aviation information, nautical information, general science, and specific mental skills such as block counting, finding hidden figures and complex movements, cyclic orientation, and spatial apperception. The author also gives practical advice on effective study techniques, how to find information resources, and physical preparation.

I bought this book after having 10 years of aviation mechanic experience to apply to be a pilot. After reading through this book several times i took the practice exams for the AFAST (Army) and there are many sample test incorrect answers. My aviaiton knowledge and just plain old common sense trumped these sample answers. example: "The maneuver in which a rotary-wing aircraft (helicopter) is maintained in nearly motionless flight over a ground reference point at a constant altititude and heading (direction) in know as ___________. " (A. feathering, B. autorotation, C. hovering, D. torque balance, E. freewheeling.) The book says the correct answer is (B) autorotation. This however is very wrong and the correct answer is actually (C) hovering. This is a frequent practice in this book and is very unhelpful for future aviatiors of all levels of experience.
