When would you issue field conditions (ceiling and visibility) to a departing IFR aircraft? when the ceiling and / or visibility is below basic VFR or the highest takeoff minima
The basic phraseology to authorize an aircraft to depart on a runway is____________________________. "RUNWAY (NUMBER), CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF"
VFR aircraft are required to monitor tower frequency while in the Class D surface area unless they request and the tower approves the frequency change. (T/F) true
When would you issue an advisory to a departing aircraft? before the wind in the clearance
If a helicopter requests takeoff from a non-movement area and the operation appears to be reasonable, issue____________. "DEPARTURE FROM (requested location) WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK (additional instructions, as necessary) USE CAUTION"

A departing Piper Colt (Category I) is airborne. The earliest you may clear a succeeding Cherokee (Category I) for takeoff, using minimum prescribed runway separation, is___________. when 3,000 feet exists between aircraft
What is the minimum runway distances applicable to successive departing aircraft using the same runway when either aircraft is a Category III? 6,000
What is the minimum runway distances applicable to successive departing aircraft using the same runway when a Category II is following a Category I? 4,500

When a small aircraft is departing from an intersection and the pilot’s request for takeoff includes a request to deviate from the three minute interval (a large aircraft has just departed), you should________________. issue a wake turbulence advisory with the takeoff clearance
A small aircraft waiting at the intersection of Runway 36 has called and requested takeoff clearance. A large aircraft has just departed Runway 36 using the full length of the runway. Your response to the small aircraft would be. "HOLD FOR WAKE TURBULENCE"

Helicopters are allowed to conduct simultaneous landings and takeoffs if the distance between the landing and takeoff points is at least_______________. 200 feet and courses to be flown do not conflict
Helicopters performing air taxiing operations within the boundary of the airfield are considered to be taxiing aircraft. (T/F) true
What actions must you take when you have more than one aircraft in the traffic pattern? sequence each succeeding aircraft
What are the two ways to apply visual separation? a pilot sees the other aircraft involved, and upon instructions from the controller, the pilot will provide their own separation, the controller sees the aircraft and issues instructions to ensure that the aircraft avoid each other
When it is necessary to hold a VFR aircraft at visual holding fixes, clear the aircraft to hold at prominent geographical fixes, preferably_________________. those depicted on sectional charts
If you have more than one VFR aircraft holding at the same geographical fix, you should__________________. issue traffic information

ARMY 67132, C-12, has requested an intersection departure. What information must be given to this military aircraft prior to taxiing for departure? the measured distance from the intersection to the runway end
When may specific traffic pattern information be omitted? if the aircraft is to circle the airport to the left
What information may be omitted if the pilot uses the phrase "HAVE NUMBERS"? runway, wind, and altimeter
