Flashcards in Oral Study Deck (50):
1

What are required items you should bring to work

Certificate, passport, medical, radio operators permit, company ID, flashlight, headset,

2

Line captain, flying with SIC who has less than 100 hours
what are the limitations

PIC must make all takeoffs and landings when
at special airports
prevailing visibility is @ or below 3/4 mile
RVR for runway is @ or below 4000
Contaminated runway
braking action less than good
crosswind <15 kts
windshear in area
PIC discretion

3

what makes an airport special

FAA administrator or SkyWest make designate an airport special if it has surrounding terrain, obstructions, or complex approaches,
Basically if it has a briefing pictures in the Jepp Charts
labeled as airport qualification

4

When do we need an alternate

if within 1 hour before to 1 hour after estimated arrival time, the wx reports, forecasts, or any combo indicate the ceiling will be less than 2000' above elevation, and or visibility less than 3 miles

5

When does a Metar report with ceiling lower than 2000 or 3 miles require an alternate, even if the forecast does not require an alternate

on flights with less than 1 hour enroute time

6

when do we need a second alternate

you can depart to a destination reporting less than req'd min's using exemption 3585, conditional language must indicate the forecast wx conditions at the destination will not be less than 1/2 the lowest wx min's visibility established for the instrument approach procedure expected to be used

you must add a 2nd alternate airport.

The first alternate can have conditional wx as well, in ceiling and visibility, but the 2nd alt must be reporting in the main body and condition wx above min's

8

When you turn the batteries on, what do you look for

Voltage of 22.5 volts or better

if voltage is between 21.0-22.5, charge the batteries referencing chart in SOPM

if voltage is below 21 volts call mx

9

Describe the electrical PBIT

It is performed anytime ac power is established on the aircraft. It takes 3 minutes to complete and is good for 50 hours.

It can be interrupted 3 ways.
By interrupting AC power,
pushing any one of the 3 flight control mode switches,
by turning on a hydraulic pump

10

Describe the Hydraulic PBIT

It is performed when all 3 hydraulic systems are first pressurized. It takes 1 minute to complete and it is good for 50 hours

It can be interrupted by moving a flight control

11

how long does the evacuation slide light battery last

10 mins

12

in an electrical emergency do the flaps still work

yes, at a slower speed, and they will only go to a max of 3 in order to provide adequate airspeed for the RAT

13

What are the 4 things you get back when the RAT powers the AC ESS BUS

AC fuel pump 2
ACMP hyd pump 3A
1 channel of slats
1 channel of flaps

14

When will the APU Auto shutdown in flight

U.......Underspeed
F........Fadec Fault
O........Overspeed

15

When will the APU auto shutdown on the ground

U......Underspeed
F........Fadec Fault
O.......overspeed

S........loss of signal
H........high oil temp
E....... high egt
L......... low oil pressure
f.......... Fire

16

How do you get a green light on the nose gear

Parking brake off and main brakes not applied
steering switch in ext power panel must be in disengaged--
This will also disengage the steering inside (steer off)

17

With an inop APU, why do we start the #2 engine first

The ground connections for the ext power and high pressure air, are on the left side of the plane

18

Which engine do we normally single engine taxi on and why

#1,
because system logic will turn on the #2 hyd pump with only the #1 engine running, whenever the parking brake is released, and the pump knob is in auto. this will give us pressure to the INBD brakes which are on sys 2.

The pump will turn off 6 mins after the parking brake is set. it will come back on when the brake is released again

19

Can we single engine taxi on the #2 engine

YES, by following a QRH procedure which will have us turn on the #1 hyd pump to provide pressure to the outboard brakes

20

Do you need to reference the QRH for a crossbleed start

No, it is an SOP procedure

21

when do we select ENG ON for Taxi/Takeoff

temps between 5-10C and there is any possibility of encountering visible moisture up to 1700 AFE
or operating on contaminated ramps or taxiways

22

When do we select A/I All for takeoff

Temps below 5 degrees C and
any possibility of encountering visible moisture up to 1700' AFE
operating on contaminated ramps or taxiways

23

what is SkyWest min speeds in icing conditions

maximum endurance speed or 210kts whichever is higher

24

If the Wings are set to on for takeoff, when will they turn on

40 kts

25

If Eng anti ice selected on, when will it turn on, on the ground

after engine start

26

When will the ice protection turn on in flight

automatically when ice is detected above 1700 agl or 2 minutes after t/o

27

you see a "Wing A/I Valve open msg after T/O, why might that be

It is a normal test upon reaching 10,000' agl or 10 minutes after takeoff. It will run for 1 minute or until all slat temp sensors increase by 10 degrees C

28

Who arms the autothrottles and when

the captain will after runway verification and lined up on the runway

29

What should be on your FMA before Takeoff

White (To) Autothrottles
Green Roll in later mode
Green TO in Vnav

Remember "To roll To"

30

What color is ATTCS before Takeoff

White

31

When does ATTCS turn Green

when the thrust levers reach TOGA

32

When will ATTCS command RSV

Thrust levers at TOGA and one of following
Difference between both engine N1 value is greater than 15%

one engine failure during takeoff or go around

Windshear detection

Or when ATTCS is engaged and thrust levers are put into MAX

33

How do you know that ATTCS worked

The green ATTCS will disappear and the cyan thrust mode will be displayed with a RSV indication

34

Describe "HOLD" mode

it deactivates the autothrottle servos between 60 kts and 400'. this is to "lock" in the takeoff thrust setting and also to prevent the autothottles from increasing thrust during a rejected takeoff

35

What is Track mode

Track mode is used to intercept and maintain an inertial derived airplane track from the IRS during Takeoff and Go around

It activates at 100kt and with bank less than 3 degrees on takeoff

on a go around it activates when Toga button is pushed

36

What are the recommended climb, cruise and descent speeds

250 kts below 10,000'
290 to .74 above 10,000
cruise .74 or .78 per dispatch
descent .78 to 290 to 250 below 10,000'

These numbers are still changing but this is the latest

37

Describe driftdown procedure

allow autothottles to advance to TOGA
disconnect A/T verify "CON"
adjust Alt selector to appropriate alt, (approx. 20,000') according to QRH
Set driftdown speed (green dot)
when reaching green dot select FLCH
notify ATC, run appropriate checklist and monitor descent

38

Why are we disarming the auto throttles on a driftdown procedure

We are getting the thrust to CON (max continuous) we disconnect them to allow us to descend in FLCH in Speed on Elevator and maintaining green dot
i.e. a slow descent rate at max power, stay as high as possible for as long as possible

39

What system powers the nose wheel steering

HYD 2

40

What happens when you push and illuminated cargo fire switch in flight

the high rate bottle will discharge followed by the low rate bottle 1 minute later unless you push it earlier

41

Will the low rate cargo bottle discharge automatically on the ground

no, you must push the button again

42

Can you discharge the cargo bottles in flight without a fire msg

yes, push the button once to arm it, a second time to blow the bottles according to logic

43

Can you discharge the cargo bottles on the ground without a fire msg

yes, push the button once to arm it, a second time to blow the high rate bottle and a 3rd time to blow the low rate bottle

44

what happens when you push the dump button in auto mode

packs and recirc fans turn off
outflow valve climbs the cabin to 12,400' at 2000fpm
at 12,400 the outflow valve closes and the cabin rises by natural leak

45

What happens if you push the dump button in manual mode

The packs and recirc fans turn off only

46

When do we adjust for icing speeds

when Advisory msg Ice conditions is announced. or Stall prot ice speeds

found in QRH or Acars

47

How do you calculate Vap speed

non-ice conditions
vref +5 min or take 1/2 steady state headwinds plus the full gust factor up to max of vref + 20

ex. landing rwy 36
vref is 130
winds are 360@10 gusting to 20
Vap would be 145kts


icing conditions
vap would be min of vref new +0 up to vref new +20

48

How long for engine cool down

2 mins

49

How many batteries for the emergency lights
how long will they last

4, 10 minutes

50

Can you put out an engine fire with the airplane depowered

yes, the fire bottles are located on the hot battery buses
