Flashcards in Block VIII - Aircraft Handling Fundamentals Deck (17)
What does SE stand for?
If SE is to be parked next to an aircraft, what position should the SE be in?
SE should be adjacent to the aircraft to prevent collision.
Danger areas for aviation.
Intakes, Exhaust, Flight Controls, Compressed Gases, Cryogenics, Explosives, Hazardous Materials, Eye, Hearing and other industrial environment dangers.
Procedures for Grounding.
First, hook up a grounding strap to a certified static ground and then to the aircraft grounding receptacle.
Purpose for grounding the aircraft?
Discharges the static electricity harmlessly to the earth or deck.
Why is windshield static grounding necessary?
During flight a high voltage (100,000 volts) static electrical charge may build up and be store in the windshield.
Tie Down categories: Initial Tie-Down.
Up to 45 knots. Minimum of 6 chains are required. Used immediately prior to, in between, or immediately after flight.
Normal Weather Tie-Down.
Up to 45 knots. 9 chains required.
Moderate Weather Tie-Down.
46-60 knots. 14 chains required.
Heavy Weather Tie-Down.
Above 60 knots. 20 chains required.
What markings identify aircraft critical walkways that cannot be walked on?
"No Step" markings.
What do we utilize to communicate in the high tempo high noise environments of naval aviation.
Aircraft hand signals.
When directing fixed wing aircraft what is the only mandatory signal?
When Launching/Recovering rotary wing aircraft, what are the two signals that cannot be changed due to platform variations?
"Wave-Off" and "Hold".
Aircraft towing speed.
Speed shall not exceed 5 MPH or the speed of the slowest walker.
Movement of aircraft is accomplished by a team of how many personnel?
