Flashcards in Oral Study (FOM) Deck (17):
1

If you loose your medical or airmen cert what must you do

contact crew support for a 72 hour temporary cert
contact FAA within 72 hours to get a temp cert which is good for 60 days

2

How many landings do you need to stay current
and how does SkyWest track this

3 takeoffs and landings within 90 days, SkyWest will split the number of landings between the captain and first officer. Odd numbers of flights will be counted as a captain landing.

Contact crew support to update if this is not the case
(yeah its in there)
this could bite an FO who only does standups, because it will be an odd number each day and they won't get credit for any landings

3

High mins captains

minimums are to be increased by 100' and 1/2 mile

at an alternate do not add this, your mins will be 300 and 1 miles unless published higher

4

Can you takeoff or land at an airport with a missing
Wind report
Visibility report
temp
altimeter

no

alt can be missing if jepp chart lists an alternate

5

Can you takeoff or land with a missing sky condition report (ceiling)

yes, unless a ceiling is specified in the chart procedure

6

How much fuel must you have onboard

enough to fly to
Destination,
then to most distant alternate,
then for 45 more minutes at normal cruising consumption

7

What are the 6 required items on a release

ID of the aircraft

trip or flight number

departure airport, intermediate stops, destination and alternates

type of operation (IFR/VFR)

minimum fuel supply

weather reports forecast or any combo for dest, stops, alt

8

When is a Full aircraft search required

FFOD
A/C from mx hangar
unattended A/C
when unauthorized access has occurred
prohibited or suspicious item found
security seal tampered with
For international flights to or from USA except Canada

9

When must you do a visual inspection and who is responsible to do it

to or from Canada
FA does the cabin
flight crew does the flight deck

10

Can mechanics sit in the jumpseat

yes, but they need specific permission and
Form FO-2 filled out

11

when must headsets be used

18,000 and below unless inop
then both pilots must remove headset and use the speakers

12

Are lighted wands required for marshalling

yes, from dusk to dawn

13

What is the Altimeter tolerance for RVSM

on ground, both altimeters must read within 75' of field elevation and within 75' of each other

14

are runway lights required at night

yes

15

what must be included in a position report

flight number
position
time
altitude
route and type of flight plan
eta over next point
next point after that
flight conditions

16

Describe method 1 drift down

Basically be able to lose an engine at v1, and climb to clear all terrain by at least 1000'



METHOD 1 Method 1 requires the aircraft to take off at a weight that ensures that if an engine failure occurs anywhere from V1 to the destination, that the aircraft's net altitude capability will clear all obstructions 5 SM either side of the intended route by 1,000 feet until reaching the destination. The aircraft must also have a positive net gradient at 1,500 feet above the destination airport. Under optimum conditions, these requirements provide actual aircraft altitude capability of approximately 6,000 feet over the most critical obstruction and 6,500 feet above the destination field elevation when operating at enroute climb speed and planned conditions.

17

Describe method 2 drift down


Basically, from cruise be able to drift down to a specified airport and clear all terrain by 2000'

METHOD 2 Method 2 (driftdown) requires that if an engine failure occurs, the aircraft be able to divert to at least one suitable airport from normal cruise altitude and the aircraft's net driftdown altitude will clear all obstructions 5 SM either side of the route of flight by 2,000 feet until reaching the diversion airport. The aircraft must also have a positive net gradient at 1,500 feet above the diversion airport. Under optimum conditions, these requirements provide actual aircraft altitude capability of approximately 7,000 feet over the most critical obstruction and 6,500 feet above the destination field elevation when operating at optimum driftdown speed and planned conditions.

Method 2 analysis provides a Maximum Enroute Takeoff Weight (M2METW) that is based on the forecast winds and temperatures aloft, bleed configuration, and ice protection configuration. M2METW is the maximum allowable weight at which the aircraft can take off and still comply with Method 2 requirements. Additionally, Method 2 analysis provides a list of driftdown suitable airports for one or more segments along the route of flight. Each segment is defined by start and end points referenced from either the origin airport, the destination airport, or navaids along the route of flight.

Method 2 analysis assumes that the aircraft diverts to the suitable airport when it is abeam the airport along the planned route and that the suitable airport is no more than 130 NM from the abeam point. It is also assumed that, if the aircraft arrives at the suitable airport geographically before the driftdown maneuver is completed, the aircraft will complete the driftdown maneuver over the suitable airport in order to reduce aircraft weight by fuel burn-off. The driftdown maneuver is considered complete when the aircraft reaches level-off altitude.

In accordance with regulations, Method 2 analysis begins at cruise altitude. Because an engine failure may occur before reaching normal cruise altitude, the aircraft must be able to return to land to the departure airport or divert to a suitable takeoff alternate in the event of an engine failure before reaching cruise altitude. Therefore, if a takeoff alternate is required, the flight planning system determines an M1METW to ensure adequate terrain clearance to the takeoff alternate. The lesser of the METW for the filed route or the METW for the takeoff alternate is then used by the flight planning system for maximum takeoff weight determination.

METHOD 2 ALTERNATE AIRPORT REPORT Regulations require that driftdown alternates and applicable segments be listed on the flight release document when using Method 2. An example of this is shown below:

FROM TO DD ALT
BUR 26 W BUR BUR
26 W BUR 37 E LAS LAS
37 E LAS JFK JFK

FROM – segment start point TO – segment end point DD ALT – Driftdown alternate airport for the segment
