    During alternate flap extension, when will the LE FLAPS TRANSIT amber light be illuminated?

    • A.

      It is illuminated until the LEDs are fully extended (trailing edge flaps are greater than 5 units )

    • B.

      It is illuminated until the LEDs are half extended (trailing edge flaps are greater than 15 units )

    • C.

      It is illuminated until the LEDs are fully extracted (trailing edge flaps are greater than 5 units )

    • D.

      Only on Approach

    Correct Answer
    A. It is illuminated until the LEDs are fully extended (trailing edge flaps are greater than 5 units )
    Explanation
    The LE FLAPS TRANSIT amber light is illuminated until the LEDs are fully extended, which means when the trailing edge flaps are greater than 5 units. This indicates that the flaps are in the process of transitioning from one position to another. Once the flaps are fully extended, the light will no longer be illuminated.

    During an RTO with main gear wheel speed more than 60kts, the spoilers will automatically deploy when the thrust levers are at what position?

    • A.

      Idle and reverser is selected

    • B.

      At Full stop position

    • C.

      Idle trust

    • D.

      Max 20 % N1

    Correct Answer
    A. Idle and reverser is selected
    Explanation
    When an RTO (Rejected Takeoff) is performed with main gear wheel speed exceeding 60 knots, the spoilers will automatically deploy when the thrust levers are at the Idle position and the reverser is selected. This means that when the pilot reduces the thrust to idle and selects the reverser, the spoilers will deploy automatically to assist in decelerating the aircraft and enhancing braking effectiveness.

  • 10. 

    What is the maximum altitude for flap section?

    • A.

      10 000 ft

    • B.

      20 000 ft

    • C.

      30 000 ft

    • D.

      18 000 ft

    Correct Answer
    B. 20 000 ft
    Explanation
    The maximum altitude for the flap section is 20,000 ft. This means that the flaps on an aircraft can be extended up to 20,000 ft above ground level. Flaps are aerodynamic surfaces on the wings that can be extended or retracted to change the shape and lift characteristics of the wing. They are typically used during takeoff and landing to increase lift and reduce the aircraft's speed. The maximum altitude for the flap section indicates the highest altitude at which the flaps can still be effectively used.

    • B.

      On the PFD

    • C.

      Lower panel

    • D.

      Displacement of both control wheels, and the indication on the scale on the top of each control column

    Correct Answer
    D. Displacement of both control wheels, and the indication on the scale on the top of each control column
    Explanation
    The aileron trim position is indicated by the displacement of both control wheels and the scale on the top of each control column. This means that when the aileron trim is adjusted, the position of the control wheels will change and the scale on the control column will show the corresponding trim position. This allows the pilot to visually see the current trim setting of the ailerons.
