17

Recall the function of the AVIONICS COOLING Switch

Q image thumb

The AVIONICS COOLING Switch is operative inflight only and is used to control radio rack cooling:

FAN - the primary fan cools the radios; if the primary fails, the backup fan comes on automatically

OVRD - the radio rack fans are off, the venturi valve is commanded open and venturi airflow cools the radios

**Note: on the ground, both fans stay on all the time and the venturi valve is commanded closed

18

Recall the function of the RAM AIR Switch

Q image thumb

OFF - Ram air valve commanded closed

ON - Ram air valve commanded open, allowing ram air to enter the air conditioning ducts

 

The system provides ventilation for the cabin and the cockpit when air conditioning is not available

**Note: aircraft packs are not required to be running for ram air ventilation

19

Recall the function of the PACK SHUTDOWN Switch

Q image thumb

**Note: Both AC packs will automatically shut down if either engine fails during takeoff OR if selected OFF through the FMS. An affected pack will also shut down if a high supply duct temperature is sensed.

AUTO - Allows automatic pack shutdown in the event of an engine failure

OVRD – Overrides the auto pack shutdown for an engine failure OR when the packs are selected OFF on the FMC

Note: The auto pack shutdown feature is disarmed above 3000’ AGL

Note: Auto pack shutdown for hi supply duct temp cannot be overridden

20

Recall the function of the FLOW Switch

Q image thumb

NORM – The flow control valve solenoid is energized to provide a lower airflow rate

HIGH - The flow control valve solenoid is de-energized to provide a higher airflow rate

**Note: The FLOW Switch must be in NORM for takeoff

21

Recall the function of the ISOL Switch

Q image thumb

CLSD- The isolation valve is commanded closed, isolating the left and right pneumatic systems

OPEN- The isolation valve is commanded open - allows crossfeed of left and right pneumatic systems

AUTO- The isolation valve is controlled by the pneumatic system controller. Allows automatic crossfeed of left and right pneumatic systems during one bleed source operation with airfoil ice protection selected ON

22

Recall where CABIN ALTITUDE and CABIN RATE are displayed

Q image thumb

Cabin pressurization information is displayed on the AIR SD synoptic

Cabin Altitude and Cabin Rate information is also displayed on the SECONDARY ENGINE SD synoptic

23

Recall the function of the Instrument Panel Flow Indicator

Q image thumb

Note: During ground operations, with both air conditioning packs selected ON, the instrument panel cooling fan is not running – and instrument cooling is provided by the aircraft air conditioning system

Note: Airflow indications apply only during ground operations, and inflight with both air conditioning packs shut down

ON – On the ground, with one or both packs off, indicates instrument panel cooling fan airflow

OFF – On the ground, with one or both packs off, indicates the absence of airflow and cooling fan failure

**Note: During ground operations, if the APU is required for cooling and both pilots must leave the cockpit, one AC pack should be selected OFF. This will preclude possible Display Unit overheats caused by an inadvertent APU shutdown with both packs selected on

**Note: During flight operations, BOTH AC packs must be OFF for Display Unit cooling fans to operate

24

Recall the function of the Gasper Booster Fan switch

Q image thumb

ON (Push) -- Provides supplemental airplane ventilation with or without air conditioning packs operating

OFF -- booster fan is not on; switch is extinguished

**Note: With packs off during booster fan operation, the ram air valve should be manually selected ON (the valve does not open automatically)

25

Recall the function of the CABIN PRESS control panel

Q image thumb

MANUAL - When switchlight is pushed, MANUAL illuminates and the cabin pressurization system operates in manual mode

SELECT - Illuminates to indicate failure of both automatic cabin pressure controllers

Note: Switchlight is dark when the pressurization system is operating in automatic mode

MANUAL LDG ALT Switch – used to set landing altitude when FMS data is not available

MANUAL (Climb/Desc)Switch – manually repositions the outflow valve to increase/decrease cabin pressurization

26

Recall the Takeoff with Air Conditioning Packs Off procedure

Takeoff with Air Conditioning Packs Off

TO/APPR key…………………………Push

PACKS – Line select ON to OFF

Observe PACKS ALL OFF alert message on EAD

**NOTE: Air conditioning packs will shut off at throttle advance and will come back on at 3,000 feet AGL

27

Recall how forward and aft cargo bins are heated and where live animals must be transported

The forward cargo compartment is electrically heated to a temperature range between 60° and 75°F

Live animals must be transported only in the forward cargo compartment, forward of the cargo door (Bin 1)

The aft cargo compartment is heated with cabin exhaust air

28

Recall the function of the Pneumatic Overheat Detection System (PODS)

PODS is automatically tested when the engine fire test is performed

If a failure is detected in the anti-ice manifolds, PODS automatically closes the respective anti-ice valve and alerts the flight crew

Detects overheat conditions in the tail compartment AND along the wing and tail ice protection manifolds
