### With the accumulator charged to 3000 psi, how many parking brake applications do you have?

• A.

Approximately three braking applications

• B.

Approximately four braking applications

• C.

One brake application

• D.

Two brake applications

B. Approximately four braking applications
Explanation
With the accumulator charged to 3000 psi, the braking system is capable of providing approximately four brake applications. The accumulator stores hydraulic pressure that is used to engage the parking brake. Each brake application requires a certain amount of pressure from the accumulator, and with it charged to 3000 psi, it is able to provide enough pressure for approximately four brake applications.

### Is the anti-skid available when using the emergency brake?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

B. No
Explanation
The anti-skid system is not available when using the emergency brake. The emergency brake is a mechanical system that directly applies pressure to the brake pads or shoes, bypassing the anti-skid system. This means that when the emergency brake is engaged, the wheels can lock up and skid, leading to a loss of control. Therefore, the correct answer is "No".

### Where does the normal braking system receive its hydraulic power from?

• A.

#1 Hydraulic System

• B.

#2 Hydraulic System

• C.

PTU

• D.

#3 Hydraulic System

A. #1 Hydraulic System
Explanation
The normal braking system receives its hydraulic power from the hydraulic system. This system uses hydraulic fluid to transfer force from the brake pedal to the brake calipers, which then apply pressure to the brake pads and create friction against the rotors. This hydraulic power allows for efficient and effective braking, as the force applied to the brake pedal is amplified by the hydraulic system to provide the necessary stopping power.

• A.

3 degrees

• B.

7 degrees

• C.

10 degrees

• D.

12 degrees

B. 7 degrees
Explanation
The rudder pedals provide approximately 7 degrees of nosewheel steering either side of center with the nosewheel steering turned on. This means that when the pilot uses the rudder pedals, they can turn the nosewheel up to 7 degrees to the left or right from its center position.

### Must the gear lever lock release button be held down when making a gear selection?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
The gear lever lock release button must be held down when making a gear selection. This button is designed to prevent accidental gear changes and ensure that the driver intentionally selects the desired gear. Requiring the button to be held down adds an extra layer of safety and helps prevent any potential mishaps while shifting gears.

### The solenoid sequence valve gets its signal to open or close the gear doors from the PSEU.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The solenoid sequence valve receives its signal to open or close the gear doors from the PSEU. This means that the PSEU controls the operation of the solenoid sequence valve, which in turn controls the gear doors. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### How long do the anti-skid lights stay on when testing is performed on the ground?

• A.

3 seconds

• B.

6 seconds

• C.

10 seconds

• D.

As long as you hold the switch

B. 6 seconds
Explanation
During ground testing, the anti-skid lights stay on for 6 seconds. This duration allows the tester to observe and analyze the performance of the anti-skid system. Holding the switch for an indefinite period of time is not necessary as the 6-second duration provides sufficient time to evaluate the system's functionality.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Which component monitors the position of the uplocks, downlocks, and gear door positions?

• A.

PTU

• B.

Solenoid Sequence Valve

• C.

PSEU

• D.

WOW Sensor

C. PSEU
Explanation
The PSEU (Proximity Sensor Electronics Unit) is responsible for monitoring the position of the uplocks, downlocks, and gear door positions. It uses proximity sensors to detect the position of these components and provides feedback to the aircraft's systems. The PTU (Power Transfer Unit) is not involved in monitoring these positions. The Solenoid Sequence Valve and WOW Sensor are also not directly related to monitoring the position of the uplocks, downlocks, and gear door positions. Therefore, the correct answer is PSEU.
