Flashcards in AFCS Deck (23):
1

What is the bank limit when BANK is selected

17 degrees used by the heading button

2

What does the amber LIM on the FMA indicate

LIMIT is displayed to indicate that the vertical speed and target speed are incompatible with thrust

3

How many auto pilots on the E-175

Single auto pilot with dual channels. One is active, the other a hot spare.

4

Will the auto pilot disconnect when FBW reverts to Direct Mode?

Yes

5

Will the auto pilot disconnect if the aileron or elevator disconnect handles are pulled?

YES

6

What happens if the pilot applies force opposite of the auto pilot input?

The AP will disconnect under a long term light force and a short term stronger force

7

Will the auto pilot disconnect when Windshear escape guidance is activated?

YES

8

If the stick shaker is activated, what happens to the auto pilot?

It will disengage

9

When is the yaw damper engaged?

Automatically after power up of either HYD 1 or 3

10

What hydraulic system is the yaw damper system on?

Hydraulic System 1 and 3

11

What FMA modes are present lining up on the runway for takeoff?

White TO for the auto throttles armed
Green ROLL for LNAV
Green TO for VNAV

12

In ROLL mode when does the autopilot return to wings level?

When bank angle is 6 degrees or less

13

In ROLL mode when does the auto pilot hold the present bank angle?

Between 6 and 35 degrees

14

What altitude will LNAV engage when armed on the ground?

200 ft

15

LNAV can be engaged above what altitude?

200 ft

16

TRACK occurs on takeoff when?

When IAS is greater than 100 kts
and
Bank angle is below 3 degrees for more than 10 seconds

17

The FD commands a pitch up of ___ on takeoff

V2 + 10

18

Explain the GA mode pitch logic

GA first sets pitch to 8 degrees
If speed is above pitches to speed target
All engines operating: Vref +20
Single engine: Vac (approach climb)

19

Windshear escape guidance is active below what altitude?

1500 ft

20

When WSHR becomes active is the pilot required to disconnect the auto pilot?

The autopilot automatically disengages when WSHR is active

21

HOLD mode is active on takeoff when?

HOLD becomes active at 60 Kts and remains active until reaching 400 ft agl

22

What does HOLD mode accomplish

De energizes the auto throttles

23

When does RETARD mode activate?

30 ft agl
