Flight through moderate or greater turbulence

Flight in vicinity of thunderstorms

7

What type of thrust is automatically calculated by FADEC?

Normal Takeoff Thrust

8

Where is the oil replenishment tank located?

AFT equipment bay

*Reference Slide #73 - Powerplant*

9

Where are the thrust lever Detents located?

Climb

TOGA

Max Power

10

Define a Cold Soaked Airplane...

First Flight of the day

Aircraft is left out for more than 8 hours with temperatures of -30 degrees C or below, things must be done:

- Engines must be motored for 60 seconds and fan rotation verified before engine start is initiated

- Thrust Reversers must be actuated until the deploy and stow cycles are less than 2 seconds

11

What is the Max N2 split at idle?

2%

12

What is the N2 limitation regarding accelerating above idle?

N2 is 57% or less with OAT of -20 degrees C or less

DO NOT accelerate above idle

13

Max operating altitude for APU:

41,000 ft

14

Max APU start altitude:

37,000 feet

15

Max Bleed Air Altitude using APU

25,000 feet

16

If APU door position is open or unknown, what is the restricted airspeed?

220 Knots or less

17

AVAIL Switchlight illuminates when?

99% plus 2 seconds

18

What's the limitation with APU start attempt limitations?

No more than 3 start attempts in 1 hour

- 2 minute delay between start attempts

19

When does the APU automatically shut down?

On the ground after 5 seconds

20

Why is gravity pressure refueling less than pressure refueling?
(this question was asked by Kevin in class)

Because of the dihedral of the wing

21

Why is the NACA scoop designed in that shape? (This question was asked by Kevin in class)

To prevent ice buildup

22

What conditions will cause a takeoff configuration warning? (Kevin told us to know these)

"PASSFAR"

Parking Brake

Autopilot

Spoilers

Stab Trim

Flaps

Aileron Trim

Rudder Trim

23

When does the Flight Data Recorder start to record?

When BEACON or STROBE light switch is selected on

24

When does the Integrated Drive Generator (IDG) automatically disconnect?

"HOTLOP"

High Oil Temperature, Low Oil Pressure

25

How would you know if the Integrated Drive Generator (IDG) is disconnected?

DISC Switchlight is illuminated

26

When does the AUTO XFER Switchlight illuminate?

When a bus fault or generator overcurrent is detected by the Generator Control Unit (GCU)

27

What happens when the AUTO XFER FAIL illuminates?

Affected generator is taken offline, due to a possible bus fault or generator over current

28

AC AVAIL Switchlight indicates what when its illuminated?

Proper PHASE, VOLTAGE, FREQUENCY is established

29

What does the Air Driven Generator (ADG) power?

- ESS BUS

- HYD pump 3B

- Slats/Flaps

- Stab Trim CH2

30

How is Hydraulic System 3 cooled?

Relies on natural convection and radiation to dissipate heat, Components are not in close proximity to any appreciable heat sources (engines)

31

What does the rudder travel limiter (RTL) do?

Rudder travel is limited IN FLIGHT ONLY, prevents overstressing the vertical stabilizer

32

What are the limitations of the Multifunction Spoilers (MFS's)?

- Must not be extended in flight below 300 feet AGL

- Must not be extended in flight at airspeed below recommended approach speed plus 10 knots

33

Max altitude for slats/flaps usage?

15,000 feet

34

What's the limitation with regarding usage of slats/flaps enroute?

Prohibited

35

What's the limitation with the use of slats/flaps while holding?

In-flight holding with slats/flaps is PROHIBITED during icing conditions

36

How are you going to change bleed air source on your panel?

Start from right, changing bleed source, ISOL open, then bleed valves

37

How many outflow valves do we have?

Only 1

38

What does the ice detectors vibrate at? (Kevin told us this in class, someone was asked on an oral)...

20,000-30,000 MHz

39

Know Cowl Anti-Ice (Kevin told us this will be on test)
