1

True or False: The pack regulators provide commands to the zone regulator. (A320 - air conditioning)

True

2

True or False: the pack regulators receive commands from the zone regulator and control and monitor their respective packs.(A320 - air conditioning)

True

3

Close the pack flow control valve for PACK 1 using the correct pb on the overhead AIR COND panel. (A320 - air conditioning)

Select the PACK 1 pb so that OFF is illuminated in white

4

Are the cargo bins heated and pressurized? Or which ones (A320)

Majority of bins are pressurized on aircraft, but don’t always have temperature control (heat)

5

If both ELACs fail or are shut off, the flight control system degrades from normal law to ____ law

Alternate law

6

What systems provide a backup elevator and THS pitch control if both ELACs should fail?

SECs 1 and 2
- SECs do not provide backup Yaw control

7

What system controls rudder movement for automatic turn coordination, yaw dampening, rudder limiting, and rudder trim?

The FACs!

8

What are the 3 independent hydraulic systems on the A320?

Green -
Blue -
Yellow -

9

If both sidesticks are moved in the same direction at the same time:

The inputs from the two sidesticks are summed (but can never exceed the input realized if there is full deflection on only one sidestick)

10

Slat alpha/speed lock:

PREVENTS you from RETRACTING the slats, if extended if the angle of attack becomes excessive or airspeed is too low

11

What are the 3 "Laws" and what is their purpose?

1. Normal
2. Alternate
3. Direct
- Each programmed with "protections" that, if exceeded, will automatically override pilot controls

12

Which "Law" will become active after multiple failures of certain systems?

Alternate Law

13

Which "Law" will become active as a result of a more SIGNIFICANT system failure? (ex landing gear)

Direct Law

14

Will the failure of a SINGLE flight computer cause a downgrade from Normal Law to alternate or direct?

No

15

Pitch protections provided in normal law include:

1. Maneuver Protection
2. Pitch Attitude protection
3. High speed and alpha protection

16

Can the A320 stall when in Normal Law?

Yes

17

What does Alpha Protection do for the A320?

Will move the flight control surfaces to prevent the AOA (alpha) form ever reaching or maintaining a stall

18

The ___ are the primary flight control computers

ELACs

19

There is an overflow return coming from the Surge Tank. Where are the surge tanks located?

In the outer section of each wing

20

The Fuel Quantity Indication (FQI) system measure what 2 things?

Fuel quantity and fuel TEMPERATURE

21

On the FUEL page, the temperature exceeds a preset limit, the corresponding indications will first flash GREEN. If high or low temperatures are further exceeded, the indications will turn AMBER.

Fuel temperature indications change to amber when a high or low limit is exceeded

22

What does an AMBER fuel temperature indicate?

That the temperature has risen above or fallen below a preset temperature limit

23

Regarding fuel usage with center tank fuel:

- Provided fuel is in the center tank, the center tank pumps feed the engines when slats are retracted
- During normal operations, center tank fuel is consumed first whenever the slats are retracted

24

With fuel in the right inner wing cell at approx 1650 lbs/750kg, which is true?

The transfer valve in both wings will open

25

True or False: There are no indications on the flight deck regarding transfer valve position.

False

26

True or False: When the transfer valves are in transit, the indications on the FUEL page change to AMBER

True

27

The Green hydraulic system can be pressurized by:

The engine #1 driven pump or the PTU (not an electric pump)

28

The Yellow hydraulic system can be pressurized by:

The engine #2 driven pump, the PTU, OR an electric pump

29

The Blue hydraulic system can be pressurized by:

An electric pump or a RAT driven pump

30

What is PSI is considered "normal" for the hydraulic systems?

3000PSI
