All answers are correct

12

The Captain's flight director with VOR/LOC selected and autopilot A engaged, uses signals from

#1 VHF NAV radio

13

What is indicated in the MCP IAS/MACH display window when VNAV is engaged

Nothing

14

What occurs when Vertical Speed is selected with the Autothrottles engaged?

V/S engages and the A/T engage in the MCP SPEED mode

15

Autothrottle operation is available with Flight Directors___ or with the Autopilot engaged or not engaged

ON or OFF

16

What does the ON light in a MCP mode selector switch indicate?

Mode can be deselected by pushing respective seitch again

17

Which statement is correct when an A/P is engaged in CMD and pressure is applied to the control wheel or column

Autopilot paddle switch remains in CMD; CWS P or CWS R is displayed on the FMA

18

What occurs when an A/P is engaged in CMD and pressure is applied to the control wheel or column

Pitch and/ or roll modes revert to CWS

All answers are correct

20

During cruise flight in VNAV, only one autopilot may be engaged.

YES

21

Which statement is correct regarding A/P operation with the paddle switch in CWS

A/P maneuvers airplane in response to control pressures applied by either pilot

22

With the autopilot in CWS ROLL and ALT HOLD, the pilot rolls the aircraft into 15 degrees of bank and releases the controls. The aircraft will

Maintain 15 degrees of bank and hold altitude

23

With the A/P engage paddle in CZmD mode, how can CWS pitch mode be engaged

CMD mode may be overridden to CWS pitch by forward or aft pressure on the flight controls

What speed will be displayed in the IAS/MACH speed window when LVL CHG is selected from VNAV

IAS/MACH display and airspeed cursors synchronize to existing speed

31

Which statement is correct regarding capture of a selected VOR course
