2

The rudder hydraulic pressure decreases to zero when ____________.

The RUDDER POWER switch is turned off

3

The primary purpose of the EFAS is to counter ___________created by ________engine asymmetric thrust during ____________ and ____________.

Adverse yaw; outboard; takeoffs and landings

4

The engine failure assist system (EFAS) provides ______________ rudder input based on N1 RPM differential between the outboard engines.

Preventative

5

Which flight control surface is mechanically locked out of the control system when the outboard flaps are fully retracted?

Outboard ailerons

6

Which primary flight control surface is normally moved hydraulically?

Rudder

7

A rudder feel unit and Q-bellows provide rudder feel at the pedals during hydraulic powered operation. The amount of feel at the pedal is a function of, and proportional to, the amount of _____ and __

Pedal deflection and airplane speed

8

Before checking the powered rudder during preflight, allow hydraulic rudder pressure to build to approx. ________ psi.

2,800

9

To make the pilot aware of a N1 differential of 1,500 rpm (30% N1) or greater between outboard engines, which indicates a probable engine failure, a ___________ light is installed on the pilot’s forward panel.

ASM THRUST light
