Level 5 - Graphic Literacy
As an airplane pilot, you need to determine the crosswind component of the wind speed to ensure safe takeoffs and landings.
Why this is a Level 5 item:
- The problem uses a graph with a less common format.
- Examinees must sort through distracting information in a complicated graph using three scales.
According to the graph shown, if the reported wind speed is 45 knots at a 20° angle, what is the crosswind component, in knots?
