Rate this question:

• 14.

### Which position do you place the bleed down switches to during bleed down?

• A.

Open

• B.

Closed

• C.

Auto

A. Open
Explanation
During the bleed down process, the bleed down switches should be placed in the "Open" position. This allows for the release of pressure from the system, allowing it to depressurize and bleed off any excess air or fluid. Placing the switches in the "Closed" position would prevent the release of pressure, while placing them in the "Auto" position would depend on the system's automatic control for the bleed down process.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### Can you operate the APU with AC plugs installed?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
Yes, the APU can be operated with AC plugs installed. This means that the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) can still function and provide power even if there are AC plugs connected to it.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### Can you operate APU with an INOP door?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
The APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) is a device used to provide power to an aircraft when the main engines are not running. The INOP (inoperative) door refers to a door that is not functioning properly or is disabled. In this context, the question is asking if it is possible to operate the APU even if the door is inoperative. The correct answer is "Yes" because the operation of the APU is independent of the status of the door.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### If starting from battery, which of these systems do you check?

• A.

Fire detection

• B.

Smoke detection

• C.

Fire and Smoke detection

• D.

None of these

D. None of these
Explanation
Since the question asks which system to check starting from the battery, the correct answer is "None of these." This implies that there are other systems or components that need to be checked before or instead of the fire detection, smoke detection, or fire and smoke detection systems. The question does not provide any specific information about what these other systems or components might be, but it suggests that they should be prioritized over the listed options.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### Which of these are the positions for the APU start panel

• A.

STOP

• B.

RUN

• C.

IDLE

• D.

START

A. STOP
B. RUN
D. START
Explanation
The correct answer is STOP, RUN, START. These are the positions for the APU start panel. The APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) is a device in an aircraft that provides power for various functions when the main engines are not running. The APU start panel allows the pilot to control the starting and stopping of the APU. The STOP position is used to shut down the APU, the RUN position is used to keep the APU running, and the START position is used to initiate the start-up process of the APU.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### If DC volt meter is readable, but flickering, is displayed voltage correct?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
If the DC volt meter is readable but flickering, it indicates that the voltage is fluctuating rapidly. However, it does not necessarily mean that the displayed voltage is incorrect. The flickering could be due to variations in the voltage source or interference in the meter's display. Therefore, the displayed voltage can still be considered correct, despite the flickering.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### If propellers rotate when bleed air is applied, what must you do?

• A.

Nothing

• B.

Switch off bleed air

• C.

Panic

• D.

Emergency procedures

B. Switch off bleed air
Explanation
When propellers rotate when bleed air is applied, it indicates a potential issue with the bleed air system. Bleed air is used to power various aircraft systems, including the propellers. If the propellers are rotating unexpectedly, it suggests that the bleed air is causing an unintended activation of the propellers. To prevent any further damage or potential accidents, the correct action would be to switch off the bleed air. This will stop the flow of bleed air and prevent any further rotation of the propellers.

Rate this question:

• 21.

### What is the minimum bleed air pressure for a bleed down test

• A.

30 PSI

• B.

45 PSI

• C.

50 PSI

• D.

60 PSI

A. 30 PSI
Explanation
The minimum bleed air pressure for a bleed down test is 30 PSI. This means that the test should be conducted with a minimum air pressure of 30 pounds per square inch.

Rate this question:

• 22.

### When is a mechanic in the flight deck to monitor APU fire warning system

• A.

Any time the APU is running

• B.

Never

• C.

Any time there is power on the aircraft

• D.

Any time the engines are running

A. Any time the APU is running
Explanation
A mechanic is required to be in the flight deck to monitor the APU fire warning system whenever the APU is running. This is because the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) is responsible for providing power to the aircraft when the main engines are not running. Since the APU is a potential source of fire, it is crucial to have a mechanic present in the flight deck to monitor the APU fire warning system and take immediate action in case of any fire-related issues.

### What is the minimum voltage from battery to start from battery?

• A.

20

• B.

21

• C.

22

• D.

24

C. 22
Explanation
The minimum voltage required to start from a battery is 22 volts. This means that the battery needs to have at least 22 volts of power in order to successfully start a device or engine. Voltages lower than 22 volts may not provide enough power to initiate the starting process.

Rate this question:

• 27.

### If below freezing, how long must you wait for APU to stabilize to apply bleed air

• A.

1 minute

• B.

2 minutes

• C.

3 minutes

• D.

4 minutes

D. 4 minutes
Explanation
When the temperature is below freezing, it is necessary to wait for 4 minutes for the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) to stabilize before applying bleed air. This waiting period allows the APU to reach a stable and consistent temperature, ensuring that the bleed air is at the appropriate temperature and pressure for safe and efficient operation.

Rate this question:

• 28.

### When does the APU starter disengage

• A.

50% or 90 seconds

• B.

25% or 60 seconds

• C.

40% or 75 seconds

• D.

75% or 90 seconds

A. 50% or 90 seconds
Explanation
The APU starter disengages when the APU reaches 50% of its maximum speed or after running for 90 seconds. This is likely a safety measure to prevent damage to the APU and ensure that it is properly started and running before disengaging the starter.

Rate this question:

• 29.

### When do you place the APU alarm switch to on

• A.

Prior to APU start

• B.

After APU start

A. Prior to APU start
Explanation
The APU alarm switch should be placed to "on" prior to APU start. This is because the APU alarm system is designed to alert the crew in case of any abnormal conditions or malfunctions during the APU start process. By turning the APU alarm switch to "on" before starting the APU, the crew ensures that they will be immediately notified of any issues that may arise, allowing them to take appropriate action and prevent any potential damage or hazards.

Rate this question:

• 30.

### If any fuel components have been replaced, how many starts may be required?

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

3

• D.

4

B. 2
Explanation
If any fuel components have been replaced, it may require two starts. This suggests that after replacing the fuel components, the engine may need to be started twice in order to ensure that the new components are functioning properly and that there are no issues with the fuel system.
