Flashcards in LPC/OPC 3 Deck (43):
When can rev thrust be used when taxiing (inc rev idle)
Only in an emergency
What is the lowest speed that auto brake should be engaged?
What is the target pitch on a GA?
15° all eng
12.5° 1 eng inop
When is the bank call made on ldg?
Where in the world is adding 15% to the ldg dist with a failure mandatory?
USA (FAA requirement)
For 125m RVR on takeoff, what should the crew be able to see from the flight deck?
90m - 6 x rwy centre-lights
What 2 weather factors have to be considered for a non-precision app?
RVR and cloud ceiling
What weather conditions must be considered for a precision approach?
What is the min visibility req'd for a vis app if radar monitored?
5km (same as for std vis app)
What is the max crosswind for TO for an inexperience FO?
50% of max
What is the lowest reported braking action that an inexp FO can land in?
Good (Capt must land at anything below this)
What is the max straight-line taxi speed?
On approach when is the sink rate call made?
Greater than 1200 fpm
What is the max speed to abort for a tyre failure?
V1-20. Above this speed it is safer to get airborne, dump fuel and land on the full distance of the rwy.
What are the max x-winds for TO and ldg?
Ldg: 32kt (EAT)
What does © mean in the MEL?
That this item affects an operational approval such as RVSM, MNPS, RNAV etc.
What brake system is required for autobrake?
How many prims are required for autobrake?
If the green hyd sys is lost, how is alternate braking selected?
Braking is transferred to the alternate sys (B Hyd) automatically. Anti-skid is still available
What is the recommended response to a "Windshear Ahead" warning on TO?
Stop. Predictive WS warning is inhibited above 100kt
What response should the crew make if "WS" aural warning is heard on TO after V1?
Apply TOGA, rotate at VR using up to full stick back, follow SRS or aim initially for 17.5°
Why is the gear not raised when WS is encountered?
The open of the gear doors will create additional drag
Why are the FDs turned off during a TCAS RA?
To avoid confusion between FD and TCAS instructions and to allow ATHR to enter SPEED mode
Below what height are TCAS RAs inhibited?
What should the immediate response to a GPWS warning be?
- AP OFF
- Full aftstick
When does the aircraft enter High Angle of Attack Protection?
If AoA exceeds alpha prot
How can you get out of Alpha Protection?
Ease sidestick forwards and add pwr.
How do you exit Alpha Floor once at a safe speed?
Push either disconnect buttons on the thrust levers.
Where are the fuel penalty tables located?
In the QRH
When asking ATC about a delay on arrival, what does "No Delay Expected" mean?
Not expected to hold for more than 20 mins - if greater ATC will give a EAT.
When does ATC have to be advised of "Minimum Fuel" state?
When any change to the existing clearance or EAT may result in ldg with less than the planned final res fuel.
Why is the reason behind the speed in the std single eng strategy?
To ensure a/c is within the stabilised windmill envelope
For a planned non-prec app, where should VAPP be entered?
At the FAF to allow a representative descent profile for a stabilised app
For a VOR app, in Rose VOR when should you turn onto final cse?
Only when cse bar nearly in the centre (much wider beam for VOR than ILS)
What call does the PF make when responding to a EGPWS warning?
Pull Up TOGA
If going around for predictive WS ahead, what is the call?
"Go around Flaps" as just a normal GA. Must turn away to avoid WS.
What is the max ht for reactive WS GA warnings?
1300ft agl - if warning stops on climbout, prob due to being above 1300ft rather than out of WS.
What call is made for a baulked landing?
"Go Around TOGA"
What type of app is recommended for a dual hyd failure?
A stabilised app
What do the black squares () mean in FCOM abnormal drills?
Starting point for each procedure if more than one in a drill, or starting point for a procedure where only 1 is applicable (ie gnd or flt)
At high flight levels, what is the danger of extending the SB to quickly for an emergency descent?
If extended quickly a/c may drop below VLS and so SB will retract and AoA protection may activate
What is the range of the MORA shown on the ND?
Highest MORA within 40nm of a/c
