Let us revive this forum with some questions to keep us sharp...
Don't be shy to awnser.If your awnser is wrong,I'll give the right one,and explain ...
Any instructor can also place a question here,but must know the right awnser,and must give it at or before the next day.

If you smoked some weed before boarding a flight, the cruising altitude of the aircraft is now FL350, how high are you s027
