Flashcards in T-38C-1 Deck (94)
The _______ sensing system varies the nozzle area to maintain EGT within limits at
both MIL and MAX range throttle positions
Avoid fingerlift actuation to preclude inadvertent engine shutdown when retarding
throttles toward idle.
The throttles, when placed at OFF, electrically shut off fuel to the engine at the main
fuel control and mechanically shut off fuel to the engine at the fuel shutoff valves
After a 1.0 hour leg on a cross-country, the oil consumption was one quart. This is
Normally, gravity feed will ensure sufficient fuel flow to operate the engines at up to
MAX power from sea level to approximately_____ feet
By specification, gravity feed operation is guaranteed only to ______ feet MSL
If a fuel pressure caution light blinks while initiating the afterburner
This is normal, continue the mission
If one or both transformer-rectifiers fail, the XFMR RECT OUT light on the console will
A single transformer-rectifier failure is indicated by
a Pilot Fault List (PFL) display
Which lights cannot be dimmed using the Warning/Caution/Advisory Light Bright/Dim Switch?
Fire warning lights.
If one of the flap motors fails as you lower the flaps, you may expect
both flaps to continue because they are interconnected by a rotary shaft
The flap slab interconnect will not:
A. reposition the slab to minimize the pitch changes due to flap movement.
B. increase amount of slab travel in the nose-down direction.
C. increase amount of slab travel in the nose-up direction.
D. change the pitch authority of the control stick by increasing the amount of horizontal tail deflection per inch of stick travel.
E. all of the above.
C. increase amount of slab travel in the nose-up direction
How can you deactivate the nosewheel steering system?
A. Release the nosewheel steering button.
B. Place a throttle in MAX.
C. Rotate the aircraft so that weight is no longer on the nosewheel.
If an open canopy has been exposed to jet blast, it should be checked for normal
operation. If the canopy will not close:
A. taxi back to the chocks and have maintenance inspect the canopy mechanism.
B. reattempt to close the rear canopy first, then the front.
C. do not taxi the aircraft until cleared by a qualified maintenance technician.
D. try to force it closed.
do not taxi the aircraft until cleared by a qualified maintenance technician
The ______ will personally ensure that the rear canopy is closed and locked.
While stowing the outside handle, do not apply _____ pressure after the canopy is
If the aircraft will not accept external AC power, and the APU checks good
cycle the battery OFF, then ON
On the ground, the minimum RPM required for engine start is _______.
While accomplishing the flight controls check, the pilot must visually confirm proper
movement of the actual flight control surfaces.
Nosewheel tires are severely damaged when maximum deflection turns are attempted
at speeds in excess of _____ knots.
To prevent possible canopy downlock mechanism damage, taxi with _____ and
pressurized whenever practical
Both canopies open or both canopies closed
Allow a minimum of _____ minute(s) before takeoff behind any large type aircraft or helicopter and a minimum of _____ minutes behind heavy type aircraft.
Abort the takeoff if the afterburner does not light in _______ seconds
When flying in gusty winds, increase which speeds by half the gust factor?
After the gear is lowered from the back seat, what must the front seat pilot do?
Physically check the handle down.
After selecting RAM DUMP, you may have to wait _____ for the pressure to equalize
When an _________ fuel is used, you should annotate it in the AFTO 781
Alternate or emergency
Anytime the aircraft departs a hard surface (taxiway or runway):
Immediately shut down both engines
If either canopy fails to open or jettison, break through the canopy using the canopy
