1

Under normal conditions the ELACs control which flight control surfaces

Ailerons, elevators, and horizontal stabilizer

2

If both ELACs fail, pitch control transfers to the

SECs

3

Under normal conditions, the SECs control which flight control surfaces

Spoilers

4

One of the three functions of the FACs is

Windshear detection

5

What happens to the stabilizer during the rollout after a normal landing

Automatically trims to 0

6

Under what non-normal condition can the Airbus NOT be flown

Loss of all hydraulics

7

All five spoilers are used

For ground spoilers

8

What happens to the spoilers if a SEC fault is detected or electrical power is lost

The affected spoiler automatically retracts

9

Speed brakes should not be extended more than one half when above FL_____ and less than Mach _____

310/.75

10

How is the rudder actuated

Hydraulically

11

What rudder trim inputs are required if an engine fails with an autopilot engaged

None. the Autopilot will trim automatically

12

The beta target is displayed when

CONF 1-3, either engine EPR exceeds 1.25 and difference between EPRs exceeds .25

13

When is automatic pitch trim inhibited

When angle of attack protection is active

14

What does the amber PITCH TRIM on the F/CTL page indicate

Pitch trim jam

15

During a flaps full landing with the spoilers deployed, what occurs if the speed brake handle is manually moved aft

All spoiler panels retract

16

For automatic spoiler extension to occur during landing

Both thrust levers must be at forward idle with the spoilers armed

17

For automatic spoiler extension to occur during a rejected takeoff with the spoilers armed.

The wheel speed must be greater than 72 knots with both thrust levers at forward idle

18

Speed brake extension is inhibited when

In flaps configuration full

19

The ECAM SPD BRK memo flashes amber if

Speed brakes are extended with thrust above idle

20

When both side sticks are operated simultaneously the addition is limited to

Single side stick maximum deflection

21

What occurs when the side sticks are moved simultaneously

Inputs are algebraically added

22

Holding the side stick takeover (priority) button for more than 40 seconds

Latches the other side stick

23

What is indicated with the green CAPT light, and the F/O red sidestick priority arrow in view

The Captain has taken priority and the F/Os sidestick is not sensed in neutral

24

Illumination of the F/Os sidestick priority arrow indicates

The Captain has pushed his takeover (priority) button

25

If the takeover (priority) button on both sidesticks are pushed

The last one activated assumes priority

26

Which computers control the flaps

SFCCs

27

How are the slats/flaps affected if one SFCC fails

All of the flaps and slats operate at half speed

28

Which hydraulic systems power the flaps

Green and Yellow

29

Which hydraulic system power the slats

Blue and Green

30

What effect does ALPHA LOCK have on the airplane

Inhibits slat retraction at high angles of attack, or low airspeeds
