State of Arizona - Alphabet Challenge

The Arizona Alphabet Challenge is now available. Enjoy this scenic routing through the "Grand Canyon State" designed by the PilotEdge Marketing staff. While most of you have likely explored the Grand Canyon, this challenge routes you through many other parts of the state, ranging from busy Phoenix Sky Harbor (PHX) to the picturesque Avi Suquilla (P20). PilotEdge oldtimers may recall P20 as the former home of the Golden Eagle Aviation Network.

Test Your Knowledge

What causes an airplane (except a T-tail) to pitch nosedown when power is reduced and controls are not adjusted?

A.
The CG shifts forward when thrust and drag are reduced.
B.
When thrust is reduced to less than weight, lift is also reduced and the wings can no longer support the weight.
C.
The downwash on the elevators from the propeller slipstream is reduced and elevator effectiveness is reduced.
