CALLS Panel (Communications)

What happens when a pilot presses and holds the MECH pb on the CALLS panel?

It illuminates a blue light on the EXT PWR PANEL and sounds and external horn.


CALLS Panel (Communications)

How should a pilot call the forward flight attendant?

Press the FWD button on the CALLS panel


CALLS Panel (Communications)

When would a pilot push the EMER pushbutton on the CALLS panel?

When there is an emergency and the pilot would like to speak with Flight Attendant A


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

What happens when a pilot pushes the CREW SUPPLY PUSHBUTTON?

Valve opens to supply low pressure oxygen to the masks.


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

How does the passenger fixed oxygen system work and how long does it last?

Chemical oxygen generators last for approximately 15 minutes


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

What does the illumination of the SYS ON light mean? Does this mean that all the masks have deployed?

The signal has been sent to release the oxygen mask doors, but some masks may have to be deployed manually.


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

What causes the automatic deployment of the masks?

Cabin altitude reaching approximately 14,000 feet


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

How is the crew oxygen mask microphone deactivated when the mask is stowed?

The RESET control slide will accomplish this - it does not happen automatically.


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

What indication would a pilot have of a crew oxygen cylinder thermal discharge?

The green disk on the lower left side of the fuselage would be missing.


OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

Could the passenger oxygen mask provide oxygen for anything other than depressurization?



OXYGEN Panel (Oxygen)

On the ground, if there is an amber half frame around the CKPT OXY PSI box, where would you look to see if you have enough oxygen for the flight?

COM Book 1 Performance - Limitations - Oxygen


RCDR Panel (Communications)

Why is the GND CTL pushbutton selected to ON during preflight?

To record preflight activities in the cockpit


RCDR Panel (Communications)

If the pushbutton was not selected ON, how would the system work in automatic mode?

On the ground during the first 5 minutes after the aircraft electrical network is energized

On the ground after the first engine start

In flight (whether the engines are running or not)

On the ground, it is stopped automatically 5 minutes after the last engine shutdown provided the CVR jack is not used.


RCDR Panel (Communications)

What allows the cabin PAs to be recorded?

ACP 3 PA volume know out and set at or above the medium range


GPWS Panel (Navigation)

What does pressing the SYS pushbutton do?

All basic GPWS alerts (mode 1 to 5) are inhibited.


GPWS Panel (Navigation)

What does an amber FAULT light in the SYS pushbutton indicate on the GPWS panel?

Any failure of GPWS mode 1 through 5


GPWS Panel (Navigation)

What effect, if any, does an amber FAULT light in the SYS pushbutton have on the TERR mode?

No effect at all


GPWS Panel (Navigation)

Describe a situation when a pilot might press LDG FLAP 3.

To avoid nuisance warning in case of landing in CONF 3.

In this case, LDG MEMO displays FLAPS...CONF 3 instead of CONF FULL


GPWS Panel (Navigation)

What effect, if any, does the failure of TERR mode have on basic GPWS?

No effect whatsoever


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

What is the significance of the red FAULT illuminating on the RAT & EMER GEN light?

AC BUS 1 and AC BUS 2 are lost and the emergency generator is not supplying electrical power


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

When would the red FAULT light on the RAT & EMER GEN light normally illuminate?

The fault light will illuminate once the RAT is deployed and electrical power is not being supplied (approximately eight seconds)


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

How can the RAT be deployed?

Manually by pushing MAN ON (EMER ELEC PWR Panel) or RAT MAN ON (HYDRAULIC Panel).

Automatically by the loss of both AC BUS 1 and AC BUS 2


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

What is the difference between automatic RAT deployment and manual RAT deployment by pressing the RAT MAN ON on the HYD panel?

RAT MAN ON supplies blue Hydraulic pressure only, no electrical generation


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

After deploying the RAT by pressing the RAT MAN ON pushbutton on the HYD panel it becomes necessary to also extract electrical power. How can this be accomplished?

By pressing the MAN ON pushbutton on the EMER ELEC PWR


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

What does the RAT supply?

Blue Hydraulic System pressure and the emergency electrical generator


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

What would cause the GEN 1 LINE SMOKE light to illuminate?

Smoke detectors (particle detectors) in the avionics ventilation ducting


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

Aside from the GEN 1 LINE SMOKE light, what would be other indications of avionics smoke?

ECAM warning

Amber FAULT lights in the EXTRACT and BLOWER pushbuttons on the VENTILATION panel.


EMER ELEC PWR Panel (Electrical)

If the ECAM directs a pilot to select GEN 1 LINE pb sw to OFF, what will be accomplished?

Gen 1 line contactor opens (white OFF light illuminates)

AC BUS 1 powered by GEN 2 through the Bus Tie Contactors

Gen 1 powers one fuel pump directly in each wing tank


EVAC Panel (Communications)

Why do we select the CAPT position using the CAPT and CAPT/PURS sw?

The alert may only be activated from the cockpit

If one of the cabin CMD pushbuttons is pressed, only the cockpit horn sounds for 3 seconds


EVAC Panel (Communications)

While conducting the Emergency Evacuation Checklist, the pilots determine that evacuation is required. How should the pilots command and evacuation?

Make a PA announcement

Press the EVAC COMMAND pushbutton
