Default Questions of the week of 02/10/19

Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!





Questions of the week:


Please Read the Introduction and requirements, changes may have been made.

A member of the Award Committee will post a question, at a random day/time.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member's winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winnings will be limited to no more than five times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
This week we're opening it up to more members!
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

So please refrain from participating if you have already won in the maximum for the Year.

First correct answer (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of "Now that you've had a Home Inspection Books" shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Allow 2 weeks for delivery.

If no correct answers, the responses may then be open to others at a time determined by the committee.

Good luck!

I guess we will find out who is qualified to fly a Drone Paul.
Those are good questions.

Well! They may have degrees, but that is not an indicator of common sense or right thinking...M. Larson circa 9-27-2018.

Question 4 has 2 correct answers based on the 2018 version of the 107. There is a 2016 version all over the internet as well as state rules. This is a tough question and I will defend my source. In retrospect I wish I had chosen a different question but it is a legitimate question.

I have to cancel this group of questions


I apologize but I found conflicting information from the FAA site as well as language that said the rules can be interpreted.

I apologize for this but its not fair to you when you can legitimately argue the answers. The FAA like many government organizations often does make the rules hazy.

According to my official source the answers are:

1. B
2. C
3. B (Now its 5 miles or get permission from the airport)
4. B,D (This was also changed and has new language including whether the overhead protection is stationary or not)

My latest information comes from a December 2018 update.

Again, I apologize
but I would rather have egg on my face than create an incorrect set of questions.

Questions are closed.
