Disconnecting A/P & A/T and turning both F/D's Off ORSelecting GA mode

2

When will the F/D command bars display when F/D not on?

When GA switch is pushed and airspeed is ABV 80kts with the flaps not retracted.Can be removed by cycling the switch.Will command GA Thrust limit

3

At what altitude can the Autoland status annunciators not change?

BLW 200ft except to indicate a NO AUTOLND condition.

4

SPD in A/T window

A/T controlling thrust to maintain SPD in window or if VNAV engaged, the SPD programmed by the FMC

N1SPDVNAVFLCHGA

6

What are the exclusive modes of A/T?

N1SPD

7

What will be indicated on FMD when A/P is set to CMD after Take off with FD off?

Bank angle less then 5degrees- PITCH- V/S Mode, ROLL- HDG HOLD modeBank angle greater then 5degrees- PITCH is V/S mode and ROLL is ATT modeWhen greater than 30deg AFDS returns to 30deg

8

What is the default mode of A/T?

SPD

9

What mode does the A/T system not reposition the thrust levers?

THROTTLE HOLD

10

What happens with A/T in a GA if A/P and F/D's are off?

Controls to go-around reference thrust subject to flap and Vmo speeds.

11

When does LNAV immediately activate when intercepting a route?

Within 2 1/2nm

12

When does G/A mode ARM and how is it displayed?

Flaps out of up ORGlideslope captureNo real annunciation, Reference thrust limit just changes to G/A
