Flashcards in Flight Controls Deck (20):
1

Normal and direct mode

There are no higher lever functions available in direct mode

2

What are the higher level functions associated with pitch?

Gain airspeed

Elevator thrust compensation

AOA limiting



3

What is connected to gear box?

F. FUEL PUMP
I. IDG
S. STARTER (air turbine starter)
H. Hydraulic Pump
O. Oil pump
I
L
PMA

4

What are the higher level functions associated with yaw?

Yaw damp

Turn coordination

Thrust asymmetry

Gain on airspeed - as airspeed increases, rudder deflection decreases

5

Not fly by wire

Ailerons

6

What is the priority for the trim system?

Backup

Captain

First Officer

Autopilot

7

How is roll controlled ?

Ailerons and multi-function spoilers
(Outer 3 spoilers on each wing)

8

How many multifunction spoilers are on each wing?
What are their functions?

5

3 outboard spoilers are used to assist in roll control and for ground spoilers

2 inboard spoilers are only used for ground spoilers

9

Oral

When will the speed brakes automatically close even if the lever shows deployed?

Flaps >2
Airspeed 70 degrees

10

What is the flap/slat extension/retraction sequence?

Slats extend first

Flaps extend first

11

What is the priority for the trim system?

Backup
Captain
First Officer
Autopilot

12

How is roll controlled?

Ailerons and multifunction spoilers (outer 3 spoilers on each wing )

13

Will loss of airspeed data cause the flight controls to go into direct mode?

Yes

14

Can a FCM override a pilot input?

No, the pilot always has supreme control

15

What happens to artificial feel if flight controls are disconnected?

Artificial feel is felt at 1/2 the normal load

16

How are the flight controlls trimmed?

Roll and Yaw. -- ailerons and rudder surface repositioned to a new 'neutral position'


Pitch. -- horizontal stabilizer

17

Will the-multi function spoilers function in direct mode?

Yes, for roll only and at a defaulted fixed gain

18

Will the speed brakes/ ground spoilers function in ' direct' mode?

No

19

What happens to the to the flight control system when the RAT is the only AC power source?

Horizontal stab trim operates at 1/2 speed?

Slat / flap system operates 1/2 speed?

Slat / flap position is limited to '3' to allow adequate airspeed for the RAT



20

What is the only primary flight control that is not FBW (Fly By Wire)?

Ailerons
