With respect to the certification of aircraft, which are categories of aircraft? Normal, Utility, Acrobatic.
Which type of weather briefing should a pilot request when departing within the hour, if no preliminary weather information has been received? Standard Briefing.
In which type of airspace are VFR flights prohibited? Class A

If instructed by ground control to taxi to runway 9, the pilot may proceed via taxiways and across runways to, but not onto Runway 9
While in flight a helicopter and an airplane are converging at a 90 degree angle. The helicopter is located to the right of the airplane. Which aircraft has the right of way, and why? The helicopter, because it is to the right of the airplane.
