    Hey guys,

    just a quick question to ask if the maths section of the airman AST has any speed distance time questions, or if is purely the basic gcse style (fractions/decimals/percentages stuff?

    The reason I ask is that the raf site and book from the AFCO has the straight forward gcse style questions, but the Richard mcmunn book off amazon has nothing but the worded style which a lot are s=d/t stuff.

    Cheers guys,


    Hi Dave,

    I sat it on Monday and can confirm there is no Speed/Distance/Time calculations, just fractions (add, subtract, multiply), conversions to decimals and simple arithmetic. If you want any more info regarding the AST I'll try my best to answer.
