62

When would a Takeoff Shift be entered on the PERF TO page?

When takeoff begins at a runway intersection

63

What occurs when managed NAV mode is engaged and the aircraft flies into the flight plan discontinuity?

NAV mode will be lost and the HDG/TRK mode engages

64

What displays or modes are available on the ND?

- Rose ILS

- Rose VOR

- Rose NAV

- ARC

- PLAN

65

If mode range data fails what should you expect to see on the ND?

ROSE NAV and 80 NM range

66

After pressing the APPR button, what do you check for?

- ILS- Blue LOC and GS in FMA

- RNAV- APP NAV and FINAL

67

Are the NAV 1 and 2 positions connected to a single bulb?

No, they are separate bulbs

68

When you turn the mode selectors to NAV, what are you looking for on the panel?

Ensure that each ADIRU has the ability to revert to the batteries by observing the BAT light illuminating for several seconds.

69

What does a flashing white ALIGN light mean?

-No present position entered within 10 minutes of NAV selection.

-Difference of 1 Degree Lat/Long between shutdown and entered position

-IR alignment fault

70

What does a flashing illumination of the amber IR "FAULT" light indicate?

Attitude and Heading may be recovered in ATT mode (you have lost the navigation portion)

71

What would be missing on the Captain's PFD if IR 1 failed or was turned off?

Attitude and Navigation information.

72

What action would recover the attitude and navigation information?

Selecting CAPT 3 on the EIS switching panel ATT/HDG selector

73

Where do you enter the Zero Fuel Weight?

INIT B

74

When is WX/TURB mode available?

At ranges of 40 NM or less

75

What capabilities does the RADAR system have?

- Weather Avoidance

- Turbulence Detection

- Terrain Mapping

- Predictive Windshear Detection

76

Does predictive windshear detection work when the RADAR system is switched OFF?

Yes, if the Windshear switch is in AUTO

77

How many RADAR systems are installed?

1

78

When is Radio Height displayed on PFD?

Below 2500' AGL

79

Information from ILS receiver 1 is displayed where?

- Captain's PFD

- F/O's ND

80

What would a flashing amber ILS indicate on the bottom of the PFD?

Flashes amber when APPR mode is armed and the LS display is not selected

81

With the loss of ADR 1 what would be lost on the Captain's PFD?

Airspeed and Altitude information

82

What is the scanned area of the predictive windshear detection feature?

Up to 5 NM ahead of the aircraft when the aircraft is below 1500' AGL

83

When are predictive windshear alerts inhibited?

- When on the ground above 100knots until reaching 50' AGL

- When landing below 50' AGL

84

What is Green Dot speed?

- Engine out operating speed in clean configuration

- Appears when the aircraft is in the clean configuration

- Corresponds to the best lift-to-drag ratio

85

What is the function of the LOC pushbutton?

Arms, engages, or disengages the LOC mode

86

How is Green Dot speed computed?

- At or below 20,000 ft equal to 2 x weight in metric tons (2204.6 lbs) + 85

- Above 20,000 ft add 1 kt for each 1000'

(FCOM 3.04.10)

87

What would prevent the weather display on the ND?

- Mode selector in PLAN

- TERR selected ON

88

Describe a post flight ADIRU accuracy check.

-Select Position Monitor page. Verify position deviation is <15 Knots. (FCOM 3.03.25)

89

What information is provided by the "IR" units?

-Flight Path Vector
-Airplane Position
-Track
-Heading
-Attitude
-Acceleration
-Ground Speed

90

What does a steady white ALIGN light indicate?

The respective IR is in the Align mode.

91

What does it mean when the IR lights are extinguished?

Alignment has been completed.
