Flashcards in Approaches Deck (40):
1

Is "preview" available on a LOC or BC app?

LOC: No

BC: No, unless using FMA for NAV

2

You are in HDG mode being vectored for an ILS. Is "preview" available?

Yes, if using FMS mode
NO, if V/L mode

3

Go-around w/out the FMS. What must the PF cal for at 400'?

"HDG"

4

Established flying in GS/GP mode. Will the autopilot capture the minimum altitude?

No,

Hence, why we set the missed approach altitude @ FAF on an approach w/vertical guidance

5

DA minimums for approach is 323'. What do you set in BARO mins select? (GS/GP mode) What altitude do you set in the altitude alerter/selector?

Rounded up to nearest 10th

330'

- missed approach altitude set bc of vertical guidance (GS/GP mode)

6

DA minimums for approach is 620'. What do you set in BARO mins select? (GS/GP mode) What altitude do you set in the altitude alerter/selector?

Rounded up to nearest 10th

- 620

- missed approach altitude set bc of vertical guidance (GS/GP mode)

7

MDA minimums for approach is 540'. What do you set in BARO mins select? (GS/GP mode) What altitude do you set in the altitude alerter/selector?

MDA +50ft (rounded)

- 590

- missed approach altitude set bc of vertical guidance (GS/GP mode)

8

MDA minimums for approach is 1123'. What do you set in BARO mins select? (GS/GP mode) What altitude do you set in the altitude alerter/selector?

MDA+50' rounded to nearest 10th

Rounded= 1180

- missed approach altitude set bc of vertical guidance (GS/GP mode)

9

Approach using FPA or V/S. MDA mins are 723'. What do you set in BARO mins selector? What altitude do you set in the altitude alerter/selector?

MDA rounded up to the nearest 100th.
- this is because the altitude set for BARO mins is the same altitude set in the Altitude alerter/selector

-800ft

-(800ft) or the published minimum are set in the altitude alerter/selector.

10

CAT-I flaps?

Flaps 5 or Full

11

CAT-II flaps

Mandatory Flaps 5

12

What is the rule of thumb calculation for applying wind correction to Vap?

Vap= 1/2 steady state + ALL gust factor

Min Vap: Vref+5
Max Vap: Vref+20

STALL PROT ICE speeds correction:
Min Vap: Vref+0
Max Vap: Vref+20

13

What is Vref calculation ABNORMAL conditions?

Found in QRH:

Vref NEW=Vref Flaps Full + Abnormal spd correct.

* NO additional wind correction necessary

14

Vref CAT-II?

Vref CAT-I + ICE ACCRETION

Or

Use ICE ACCRETION speeds

15

While navigating using the FMS on an approach, a DGRAD message populates. What do you do?

The FMS as a navigation source MUST NOT be used for the remainder of the approach. You may continue using raw data or perform missed approach.

16

Approx how far do we want to be from the airport before configuring flaps?

15 miles

17

When do you configure final flaps landing visually? What if you were single-engine?

- Base
- Final (SE)

18

When do we want to be selecting flaps 2 on an instrument approach?

Intercepting: localizer, final approach course inbound

19

When do we want to be selecting flaps 3 on an instrument approach?

Established on final approach course inbound and/or glidepath movement

20

When do we want to be selecting Final flaps & gear on an instrument approach?

Established on final approach course w/1 dot deflection or 2 miles to FAF

21

What call do you make @ FAF on an ILS?

PM- final approach fix
PF- set missed approach altitude
PM- _____ set

22

What call do you make @ FAF on a LOC app?

PM- final approach fix
PF- set minimums

23

What call is made 80ft above minimums?

PM- Approaching minimums

24

What call is made at MDA prior to MAP on an Approach w/out vertical guidance? @MDA?

PF- set missed approach altitude
- verified with ALT on FMA

PM- minimums, runway insight, approach lights continue

25

What call is made at MAP no visual reference to RWY?

PM- missed approach
PF- missed approach

26

What tells the airplane a CAT-II approach is intended?

Selecting RA minimums instead of BARO

27

What should we look for on PFD to verify CAT-II ok?

Green APPR2

28

What does an Amber APPR1 ONLY message mean?

- no longer CAT-II capable
- no valid RA
- flaps greater than 5
- slat-flap lever disagreement on EICAS
- RA mins not set, or changed to BARO
- LOC frequency or inbound course mismatch

29

What is the minimum DH we can set, even if published is below?

SOPM 4-12.16

80ft

30

How many Radar Altimeters must we have for a
CAT-II?

- At least 1 (RA test must be performed)

31

Can we hand-fly a non-coupled CAT-II approach?

No, prohibited

32

The AP disengages after crossing the FAF. Can re-engage it?

No, execute the missed approach procedure

33

A deviation warning occurs below 200' RA. What to you do?

Do not attempt to correct

Discontinue the approach.

Go missed

34

Can you fly an ILS or LDA in FMS mode?

Prior to FAF: yes, however APP must be armed prior to crossing FAF

After FAF: no, prohibited

PM may utilize FMS mode to cross reference performance on an approach WITHOUT vertical guidance: ie. LOC

35

The FMS supports what type of non-precision approaches? Meaning you can fly them using the FMS.

GPS(GNSS), RNAV, VOR.. VOR/dme

36

What final flap setting is used SE?

Flaps 5

37

What will we see on the FMA, going around, after pressing TOGA? When will they go away?

- GA, TRACK & GA

- selecting a different lateral or vertical mode will change each associated TRACK/GA

38

When must a go-around be initiated?

A. Unstabilized: (below 1000)
1. Sink Rate: +1000ft
2. Localizer/glidepath: +1 dot deviation
3. Speed: +10/-5kts or below Vref
4. Bank: +25°
5. Pitch: +/- 5° established pitch
6. AP/FD: failure: Aural Warning

B. EGPWS warning
C. RA
D. No visual contact w/RWY or lighting @ DA/MDA
E. Visual or VFR Approach & landing:
– established by 500' within 5° of RWY centerline
F. Continuous position to land normally

39

Can a flight be dispatched using RNAV (GPS) based IAP minima at both destination and alternate airport?

FOM 4-8

No, GPS may be used for destination or alternate, but not both

40

For every 50kts of tailwind, how much do we vary our descent angle?
