Aircraft Bleed Air Systems! Trivia Questions Quiz

Are you familiar with the phrase, aircraft bleed systems? The uncontrolled loss of blood air from the pneumatic system or any of the pneumatically powered services have the potential to inflict damage to aircraft structures. Bleed air is comprised of air taken from the compressor stage of a gas turbine upstream of its fuel-burning sections. Try this quiz and test your knowledge about aircraft bleed air systems.
