Flashcards in EMB-120 Aircraft General Deck (29):
You are cruising at 15,000’ MSL and enter moderate to severe turbulence.
What should you adjust your speed to?
Vb = 175 KIAS
Minimum operating temperature for an EFIS aircraft at KSUN (ele.5320 ft. MSL) is what?
The operational temperature limits for EFIS equipped airplanes at SGU, (field
elevation 2941 feet MSL) are what?
• ISA = 15˚ at sea level and minus 2˚ per 1,000’
• SGU = 3,000 (3,000 x 2 = 6,000 / 1,000 = 6)
• ISA = 9˚ at 3,000’ (15 – 6 = 9)
• EFIS temp limit = ISA + 35˚C
• 35 + 9 = 44
• Temp limit at SGU = 44˚C
You are parked at the gate. The ground crew is loading bags, passengers are boarding, and the aircraft is being refueled. What door associated lights will you see in the flight deck?
• DOORS on MAP
• SERVICE (only door to make DOORS on MAP illuminate)
The main cabin door receives its power to close from?
• Hot Battery Bus
• Green Hydraulic System Accumulator
1. Height: 21’
2. Wingspan: 65’
3. Length: 65’
4. Turning radius: 62’
5. Prop tip to tip: 10.5'
How many layers is the windshield made of?
1 copper mesh
What door could cause the SERVICE door light to illuminate?
Electric compartment door (nose gear)
Controls rigging door (pressurized)
1 of 2 refueling doors
What causes the FORWARD ACTUATOR door light to illuminate?
The cabin door remains hydraulically pressurized after shutting. To relieve pressure, actuate the fwd door emergency valve located in the flight deck step per the QRH or per the valve in the hydraulic service door.
Where are the radio antennas located?
Comm 1 and 3 on top, Comm 2 on bottom.
What is the procedure if vision through both windshields is impaired?
Remove DV window when IAS is below 140 kts. Fly approach by looking through the DV window!
On a gear up landing, you open the main cabin door. When will the steps deploy?
They won’t. The door will act as a slide unless the door is fully opened.
Where does the door receive power to open and close?
To open- gravity, free-fall. To close- Green hydraulic system accumulator (on Hot Battery Bus).
How can you tell if the emergency exit is closed?
The flapper door is flush with the door.
How many emergency exits are there?
4 (6- including dv windows)
What is the propeller tip clearance?
