    When will the FMC not automatically sequence the active waypoint in flight?

    • A.

      When more than 21 NM off the active route and not on an offset.

    • B.

      When more than 2.5 NM off the active route and not on an offset.

    • C.

      When passing over the waypoint in HDG SEL.

    • D.

      When passing over the PROCEDURE HOLD waypoint on an approach.

    Correct Answer
    A. When more than 21 NM off the active route and not on an offset.
    Explanation
    When the aircraft is more than 21 NM off the active route and not on an offset, the FMC will not automatically sequence the active waypoint in flight. This means that the FMC will not automatically proceed to the next waypoint in the flight plan when the aircraft reaches the current active waypoint. Instead, the pilot will need to manually select and activate the next waypoint. This is likely done to prevent the aircraft from deviating too far off course without pilot intervention.

    What is the altitude source for transponder altitude reporting when the ALT SOURCE selector is in the NORM position?

    • A.

      ADIRU

    • B.

      SAARU

    • C.

      Air data modules

    • D.

      The master FMC

    Correct Answer
    A. ADIRU
    Explanation
    When the ALT SOURCE selector is in the NORM position, the altitude source for transponder altitude reporting is the ADIRU (Air Data Inertial Reference Unit). The ADIRU is responsible for providing accurate altitude information to the transponder, which is then transmitted to air traffic control and other aircraft. The ADIRU combines data from various sensors, such as the pitot-static system and inertial reference system, to calculate the aircraft's altitude. Therefore, when the ALT SOURCE selector is in the NORM position, the ADIRU is the source of altitude information for transponder reporting.

      A single source of display information is used by some or all display units

    Correct Answer
    A. Both PFDs and NDs are using the same source of ILS information
    Explanation
    This EICAS message indicates that both Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) and Navigation Displays (NDs) are receiving the Instrument Landing System (ILS) information from the same source. This means that the ILS receiver is tuned to a single frequency and both displays are using that information for navigation and guidance.

      Any time, on the ground or in flight

    • D.

      Only during preflight before entry of the ORIGN

    Correct Answer
    B. Only on the ground
    Explanation
    The active navigation database can only be changed on the ground. This means that it cannot be changed during the flight or at any other time while the aircraft is in the air. Changing the navigation database is a preflight task that needs to be done before the aircraft takes off.

    The FMC scratchpad message TAKEOFF SPEEDS DELETED does not display for which of the following conditions?

    • A.

      A new ZFW is entered on the PERF INIT page

    • B.

      A new FLAPS setting is entered on the TAKEOFF REF page

    • C.

      A new CG value is entered on the TAKEOFF REF page

    • D.

      New runway winds are entered on the TAKEOFF REF page

    Correct Answer
    C. A new CG value is entered on the TAKEOFF REF page
    Explanation
    When a new CG value is entered on the TAKEOFF REF page, the FMC scratchpad message "TAKEOFF SPEEDS DELETED" will not display. This message is typically displayed when there are changes made to the aircraft's weight, flaps setting, or runway winds on the TAKEOFF REF page. However, changing the CG value does not affect the takeoff speeds calculation, so the message is not triggered in this case.
