    Correct Answer
    D. PRCA, ARI, and control system damper
    Explanation
    The control stick boost-and-pitch compensator on the F-15 comprises the PRCA (Pitch Rate Command Amplifier), ARI (Automatic Recovery Interceptor), and control system damper. These components work together to enhance the control stick input and provide stability and control during flight. The PRCA amplifies the pilot's input, the ARI helps with automatic recovery from certain flight conditions, and the control system damper helps dampen any oscillations or vibrations in the control system.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    On the F-15, how does the PRCA control the ARI?

    • A.

      Electrically through the airspeed switch

    Correct Answer
    C. Hydraulically through the pitch ratio controller
    Explanation
    The PRCA (Pitch Ratio Controller Assembly) controls the ARI (Automatic Recovery System) on the F-15 hydraulically. This means that the PRCA uses hydraulic power to manipulate the pitch ratio of the aircraft, which helps in maintaining stability and control during flight. The hydraulics system allows for precise and efficient control of the ARI, ensuring smooth and accurate adjustments to the pitch ratio as needed.

    Correct Answer
    D. Act as flutter dampers
    Explanation
    If the aileron servo cylinders on the F-15 lose hydraulic pressure, they will act as flutter dampers. Flutter is a phenomenon that occurs when there is an uncontrolled oscillation of the aircraft's control surfaces, which can be dangerous. The aileron servo cylinders, in this case, will help dampen the flutter and stabilize the aircraft, preventing further damage or loss of control.

    • D.

      12-16 psi

    Correct Answer
    A. 2-8 psi
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2-8 psi. This means that the blowback check valve on the F-15 will automatically retract the speed brake when the pressure is between 2 and 8 psi above the utility pressure. This mechanism ensures that the speed brake is retracted at the appropriate pressure to maintain the aircraft's stability and control during flight.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    On the F-15, what position does the speed brake actuator go to by setting the speed brake switch to aft?

    A path from the liquid oxygen probes to the quantity indicator on the F-16 is provided by

    • A.

      Coaxial cables

    • B.

      Oxygen probes

    • C.

      The oxygen quantity relay

    • D.

      The oxygen low-pressure switch

    Correct Answer
    A. Coaxial cables
    Explanation
    Coaxial cables provide a path from the liquid oxygen probes to the quantity indicator on the F-16. These cables are commonly used in electronic systems to transmit signals with high frequency and low loss. In this case, the coaxial cables are used to transmit the information from the liquid oxygen probes, which measure the quantity of oxygen, to the quantity indicator on the F-16. This allows the pilot or operator to monitor the oxygen levels in the aircraft. The other options mentioned, such as oxygen probes, the oxygen quantity relay, and the oxygen low-pressure switch, may be components or devices related to the oxygen system but they do not directly provide the path for the information to reach the quantity indicator.

    The F-16's OXY LOW warning light illuminates.......

    • A.

      When the reserve liquid oxygen(LOX) supply is being used.

    • B.

      At a LOX quantity level of less than 0.9 liters

    • C.

      At a LOX quantity level of less that 0.5 liters

    • D.

      When LOX pressure drops below 55 psig

    Correct Answer
    C. At a LOX quantity level of less that 0.5 liters
    Explanation
    The F-16's OXY LOW warning light illuminates at a LOX quantity level of less than 0.5 liters. This means that when the amount of reserve liquid oxygen (LOX) in the aircraft drops below 0.5 liters, the warning light will turn on. This is an important safety feature as it alerts the pilot to the low oxygen level, indicating the need to take appropriate actions to replenish the LOX supply and ensure the availability of breathable air for the pilot.

    What system malfunction causes the F-16's liquid oxygen quantity indicator to rotate counterclockwise?

    • A.

      Shorted probe

    • B.

      Oxygen pressure leak

    • C.

      Moisture in the converter

    • D.

      Short-to-ground in the high voltage side of the circuit.

    Correct Answer
    D. Short-to-ground in the high voltage side of the circuit.
    Explanation
    A short-to-ground in the high voltage side of the circuit can cause the F-16's liquid oxygen quantity indicator to rotate counterclockwise. This means that there is an electrical connection between the high voltage side of the circuit and the ground, causing a malfunction in the system. This malfunction leads to the incorrect rotation of the indicator, indicating a lower quantity of liquid oxygen than what is actually present.

    Correct Answer
    A. A temperature-sensitive salt mixture
    Explanation
    The voids and clearances between the center conductor and the outer tube of the fire detection set sensing elements on the F-16 are filled with a temperature-sensitive salt mixture. This mixture is used to detect any changes in temperature, which can indicate the presence of a fire. As the temperature increases, the salt mixture undergoes a chemical reaction that triggers an alarm, alerting the pilot to the potential fire. This ensures that any fires can be quickly detected and addressed, increasing the safety of the aircraft.

    Rate this question:

  • 48. 

    The fire detection set sensing elements on the F-16 have an alarm temperature of .....

    • A.

      400 degrees

    • B.

      575 degrees

    • C.

      765 degrees

    • D.

      875 degrees

    Correct Answer
    C. 765 degrees
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 765 degrees because the fire detection set on the F-16 has a specific alarm temperature set at this level. This means that if the temperature reaches or exceeds 765 degrees, the fire detection system will activate an alarm to alert the pilot of a potential fire. It is crucial for the system to have a high alarm temperature to ensure that it only triggers in the event of an actual fire and not false alarms caused by normal operating temperatures.
