-300F MAIN DECK
Fire suppression in the cargo compartment is accomplished by shutting off air to the compartment
The airplane gradually depressurises and the oxygen required for combustion is eliminated

- During take-off or landing, not placing the seat back, table or footrest in position
- Leaving baggage in the aisle or other area where it could disturb an emergency evacuation
- Operating, transferring or malfunctioning of the emergency device or emergency equipment
When does the operational flight plan become “company clearance”?
When the Captain AND Flight Dispatcher approve the operational flight plan
What level of reverse thrust is used for non-normal landing distance calculations?
- If both reversers available they remain at 85% N1 until 70kts
- If one reverser is available, it remains set at idle reverse
- If neither reverser is available, both engines remain set at forward idle
What are the 3 phases of search and rescue?
- Uncertainty phase
- Alert phase
- Distress phase
If you encountered windshear after V1 but prior to VR, when would you rotate the aircraft? How would you do this?
- If windshear is encountered near the normal rotation speed and airspeed suddenly decreases, there may not be enough runway left to accelerate back to normal take-off speed
- IF THERE IS INSUFFICIENT RUNWAY TO STOP, initiate a normal rotation at least 2000ft before the end of the runway even if airspeed is low
- ENSURE MAXIMUM THRUST IS SET
- Higher than normal attitudes may be required to lift off in the remaining runway
What is the maximum allowable tailwind for take-off and landing?
- Runway 2001m or more = 15kts
- Runway 2000m or less = 10kts
What is the standard significant deviation for the VOR on approach?
- More than 1 dot (5 degrees) below 1000ft
What is the required 2nd segment climb gradient for the B767?
- The second segment begins at gear up and continues to the level off point
In addition to the hand carry articles, what other documents should flight crew members take with them?
- Operational flight plan documents or dispatcher release message
- A copy of the ATS flight plan
When can the Captain commence a circling approach at or above the MDA?
- The runway or:
- The circling guidance ￼￼￼￼￼lighting is clearly visible and identifiable or:
At least one of the following visual references is clearly visible and identifiable:
- Markings (Numbers/Threshold stripes/Touchdown zone)
- Approach lighting system or runway alignment indicator
- Runway/Threshold/Touchdown zone/Edge Lighting
- Visual guidance slope indicator
What letter indicates RVSM capability on the ATS flight plan strip?
What is the maximum lateral fuel imbalance?
It is higher at lower fuel weights, and lower and higher fuel weights as follows:
- Below 48,000lbs the maximum imbalance is 2500lbs
- Between 48,000lbs and 79,800 it is linear from 2500lbs to 1500lbs and the graph needs to be consulted and interpolated
- Above 79,800, the maximum imbalance is 1500lbs
When must the Captain declare an emergency with low fuel?
- Declare an emergency and request ATC priority for landing when estimated fuel on landing is expected to be less than 30 minutes holding fuel
Is take-off thrust still limited to 5 minutes if using derate 1 or derate 2 thrust, or ATM reduced thrust?
- Maximum time use of take-off thrust is 5 minutes
- This includes derated take-off thrust and reduced take-off thrust
Whilst enroute to the destination, the alternate airport weather conditions deteriorate to below the alternate minima. No other alternate airport can be selected. Under what conditions can the aircraft continue to the destination?
- Yes if the flight time to destination is no more than 6 hours and:
- For at least one hour before and after the ETA at the destination, the weather indicates that:
Ceiling 2000ft, or DH/MDA + 1500ft, whichever is greater
Visibility 5000m, or RVR/VIS +3200m, whichever is greater
