Flashcards in Avionics, Flight instruments Deck (31):
Will the flight deck PA override the flight attendant PA?
How should we contact the flight attendant in the emergency?
Turn the audio panel selector knob to PA, push the EMER call switch light to generate three high/low chimes and a flashing red light on the FA's overhead panel
What indication do we get if the FA is calling the flight deck because of an emergency in the cabin?
We hear one high/low chime and the EMER call switch light will be flashing
How do we know if the company is trying to contact us?
"SELCAL, SELCAL" voice aural and SELCAL advisory EICAS message or an ACARS message

In MAG mode, how long does it take the AHRS to initialize?
30 to 70 seconds
In DG mode, how long does it take the AHRS to initialize?
10 to 11 minutes
From which source do the captain's flight instruments receive AHRS Information?
AHRS 1 or IRS 1
From which source do the FO flight instruments receive AHRS information?
AHRS 2 or IRS 2
From which source do the captain's flight instruments receive pitot/static information?
System #1, pitot/static tube on the left hand side of the nose
From which source do the FO's flight instruments receive pitot/static information?
System #2, pitot/static tube on the right side of nose

System #3, standby pitot under captain's side window and two alternate static ports, one on left side, and one on the right side.
Where is the TAT probe located?
Under FO's side window
What is the definition of Total Air Temperature?
The temperature of the air corrected for compressibility and friction caused by high speed
On the ground with the probe heat ON, which probes are heated?
All pitot probes are heated half way, all others are fully heated except the TAT probe, which is not heated on the ground
In flight, which probes are heated?
All are fully heated regardless of probe heat switch position
Is there a LOC and GS indication on the standby attitude indicator?
Yes, referencing NAV 1
When and where will the radio altitude information appear?
0 to 2500' AGL indicated in green below the altitude tape
What does the speed trend vector indicate?
Predicted airspeed in 10 seconds if no changes are made
What does the green line on the airspeed tape indicate?
1.27 Vs based on current configuration. Not accurate at high altitudes
Where is the slip and skid indicator located?
A rectangle located just under the sky pointer
How many flight directors are installed?
How many autopilots are installed?
What does the autopilot follow when engaged?
The selected side flight director which defaults to the captain's FD. The XFER button must be selected on the flight control panel to transfer to the FO's FD.
What happens when the TOGA is pushed on the ground?
TO lateral mode, TO vertical mode, FMS aligns the aircraft at the end of the runway indicated on legs page, Autopilot disengages
What does the TO lateral mode do?
On the ground, it generates a wings level command. After takeoff, it generates a heading hold command with a 5 degree bank limit using the heading existing at takeoff
What does TO vertical mode do?
Generates an optimized pitch up attitude for takeoff
What happens when the TOGA is pushed inflight?
GA lateral mode, GA vertical mode. Missed approach procedure depiction appears on the MFD if instrument approach procedure selected in FMS, Autopilot disengages
What does the GA lateral mode do?
Same as TO lateral mode and follows heading flown when TOGA was pushed
