    • B.

      10-30 PSI

    • C.

      11-90 PSI

    • D.

      13-30 PSI

    Correct Answer
    A. 13-35 PSI
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 13-35 PSI. This range represents the ideal oil pressure for an engine at idle. Oil pressure is important because it ensures proper lubrication of engine components. If the pressure is too low, there may be insufficient lubrication, leading to increased wear and potential damage. On the other hand, if the pressure is too high, it can cause damage to seals and gaskets. Therefore, a range of 13-35 PSI is considered optimal for maintaining engine performance and longevity.

    Rate this question:

    In extreme cold, oil pressure may do what?

    • A.

      Peak to full scale

    • B.

      Remain at 0 PSI

    • C.

      Fluctuate from 11-90 PSI

    • D.

      Stay at a steady 35 PSI

    Correct Answer
    A. Peak to full scale
    Explanation
    In extreme cold temperatures, the viscosity of oil increases, causing it to become thicker and less fluid. This increased viscosity can lead to a temporary increase in oil pressure, causing it to peak to the maximum level indicated on the pressure gauge, also known as full scale. This is because the thicker oil takes longer to flow through the engine, creating higher pressure readings. Once the engine warms up and the oil thins out, the pressure will return to normal levels.

    • C.

      13 PSI

    • D.

      11 PSI

    Correct Answer
    C. 13 PSI
    Explanation
    The low oil pressure warning light goes out at 13 PSI because this is the minimum pressure at which the engine is considered to have sufficient oil pressure. If the pressure drops below this level, it indicates a potential problem with the engine's lubrication system, and the warning light will remain on to alert the driver. Therefore, once the oil pressure reaches or exceeds 13 PSI, the warning light will turn off, indicating that the engine has adequate oil pressure.

    When operating all 4 engines at 75% N2, shutdown engines when fuel quantity drops below what?

    • A.

      15,000

    • B.

      20,000

    • C.

      30,000

    • D.

      40,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 40,000
    Explanation
    When operating all 4 engines at 75% N2, the engines should be shut down when the fuel quantity drops below 40,000. This indicates that the engines should not continue running if the fuel level falls below this threshold, as it could lead to a fuel shortage and potential engine failure.

    When 2 engines are operating at TRT, shut down engines when fuel quantity drops below what?

    • A.

      40,000

    • B.

      50,000

    • C.

      60,000

    • D.

      80,000

    Correct Answer
    C. 60,000
    Explanation
    When two engines are operating at TRT (Takeoff Rated Thrust), they should be shut down when the fuel quantity drops below 60,000. This threshold is likely determined based on the minimum fuel required to safely operate the engines and ensure sufficient power for takeoff. Falling below this fuel quantity could lead to a loss of engine power and potentially compromise the safety of the aircraft.

    Icing conditions are defined as what?

    • A.

      40°F

    • B.

      50°F and visible moisture is present

    • C.

      32°F

    • D.

      50°F

    Correct Answer
    B. 50°F and visible moisture is present
    Explanation
    Icing conditions are defined as when the temperature is 50°F and visible moisture is present. This means that when the temperature is at or below 50°F and there is moisture in the form of rain, snow, or fog, the conditions are conducive to the formation of ice on surfaces such as roads, aircraft, or power lines. This can lead to hazardous situations and requires caution and appropriate measures to prevent accidents or damage.

    Do not re-engage the starter above what?

    • A.

      25% N1

    • B.

      50% N2

    • C.

      25% N2

    • D.

      50% N1

    Correct Answer
    C. 25% N2
    Explanation
    The given answer of "25% N2" suggests that the starter should not be re-engaged above 25% N2. This means that once the starter has reached 25% of its maximum speed, it should not be accelerated further. This could be due to various reasons such as preventing damage to the starter or ensuring a smooth and controlled start of the engine.

    To operate the APU, the hydraulic accumulator needs to read what?

    • A.

      3000 +/- 250

    • B.

      3000 +/- 350

    • C.

      3000 +/- 500

    • D.

      2800 +/- 350

    Correct Answer
    B. 3000 +/- 350
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 3000 +/- 350. This suggests that the hydraulic accumulator needs to read a pressure of 3000 units with a possible deviation of up to 350 units. This range allows for some flexibility in the reading, accommodating slight variations in the pressure while still ensuring that it remains within an acceptable range for the APU to operate effectively.
