1

Why are there two triangles for each gear on the ECAM WHEEL page

Each triangle represents the gear position detected by one of the two LGCIUs

2

The landing gear hydraulic safety valve is controlled by

The gear lever and ADIRUs 1 and/or 3

3

Which statement is true concerning the green hydraulic system as it relates to normal landing gear extension

Hydraulic system remains pressurized with gear extended

4

The landing gear extension and retraction is controlled electrically by

LGCIU 1 or 2

5

With the gear NOT down, what causes the red landing gear DOWN arrow to illuminate

RA < 750 feet with power at approach settings and flaps not 0

6

The landing gear DOWN arrow illuminates red with associated ECAM L/G GEAR NOT DOWN warning if the landing gear is not down and

Flaps 3 or FULL selected with both radio altimeters inoperative

7

According to the graphic what is the position of the landing gear

One LGCIU has failed and the gear is downlinked

8

What is a characteristic of landing gear gravity extension

Noswheel steering is deactivated

9

Which landing gear system is lost with a green hydraulic failure

Nose wheel steering

10

With a green hydraulic system failure only, which brake system is not available

Autobrakes

11

How do you stop an airplane with a failed parking brake, during engine start

Restore braking with the brake pedals

12

What happens if the A/SKID & N/W STRG switch is turned off

Brakes revert to the alternate brake system without nose wheel steering or anti skid

13

A brake accumulator supplies at least _____ brake applications

7

14

Which hydraulic systems provides pressure for the ALTERNATE brakes

Yellow

15

Which hydraulic system is used for the parking brake

Yellow

16

Which hydraulic system provides brake pressure indications on the BRAKES and ACCU PRESS indicator

Yellow

17

What pilot action is required on landing with a loss of normal braking and a failure of the anti skid system

Monitor the brake pressure using the BRAKES and ACCU PRESS indicator

18

What type of brakes are available with only a green hydraulic failure

Alternate brakes with anti skid

19

When alternate braking is available without antacid due to a BSCU failure, pedal pressure must be controlled to prevent wheel lockup and

Brake pressure must be limited to a maximum of 1000 PSI on the BRAKES and ACCU PRESS indicator

20

The anti skid system is deactivated with

Groundspeed less than 20 knots

21

Which system is not active if a takeoff is rejected below 72 knots

Autobrakes

22

The BSCUs control

Antiskid operation

23

Which hydraulic systems supplies pressure for nose wheel steering

Green

24

What does the green NW STRG DISC ECAM memo indicate

A lever on the towing electrical box is in the towing position and the nose wheel steering system is deactivated

25

If the PEDALS DISC button is pushed and held what happens

Rudder pedal control of the nose wheel steering is disconnected

26

What does an amber NW STRG DISC ECAM memo indicate

The nose gear steering has been deactivated for towing and the first engine is started

27

Automatic braking is initiated by the

Ground spoiler extension command

28

The green DECEL light on the AUTO/BRK panel illuminates when

Actual airplane deceleration equals 80% of selected rate

29

The auto brake system can be disarmed by

Applying sufficient brake pedal pressure to one pedal

30

After landing, where would you look to find the actual brake temperature

On the ECAM WHEEL page
