Preface

Which of the following are true statements about cold temperature corrections? (May have multiple answers.)

1.

Cold temperature corrections decrease published altitudes.

2.

Corrections may apply to the intermediate, final, missed, or any combination of segments.

3.

A pilot may compute a single correction altitude that applies to all segments between the initial approach fix and the missed approach holding fix.

4.

If given a vector to final on an approach where cold temperature corrections apply, the assigned altitude of the vector should be corrected.

5.

ATC must be advised when applying cold temperature corrections outside of the FAF.
