What is an Off Route Obstruction Clearance Altitude (OROCA)?
  1. The minimum altitude in each sector on a map to ensure obstruction and terrain clearance in that sector
  2. The minimum altitude in each sector on a map to ensure just terrain clearance in that sector
  3. The minimum altitude in each sector on a map to ensure obtruction and terrain clearance for the entire geographic region of the flight
Continuing Education Atmosphere
How does the hot air affect aircraft performance in both airplanes and helicopters?
  1. Hot air is less dense and therefore has less molecules in the air to create lift and propulsion
  2. hot air is more dense and therefore exerts more weight on the aircraft to overcome
  3. hot air makes the engines work harder so the engines overheat and create less power
