  19. What prevents gear retraction on the ground? 12-5
    A spring loaded latch pin
  20. What does pushing the Down lock release button do? 12-5
    Mechanically releases the latch pin
  21. What is used for emergency extension? 12-7

  25. During Emergency Extension, what seperates the gear doors from the actuating linkages? 12-7
    Explosive bolts
  26. How are the brake pads preflight checked? 12-9
    By observing the wear pins
  27. What determines if the brake pad wear indicators are within limits? 12-9
    If the indicators extend above the circular casing
  28. How are the brakes operated? 12-9
  29. How many brake systems are on the aircraft? 12-9
    2, Inboard and outboard brakes
  30. At what speed does the Anti-skid cut out? 12-10
    20 knots
  31. What protects the tire from over pressure due to brake temperatures? 12-10
    Pressure relief blow out plugs
  32. What is the purpose of the Anti-skid system? 12-10
    To limit brake pressure and avoid locked wheels
  33. How does the Anti-skid determine if a wheel is "skidding"? 12-10
    Compares inboard and outboard wheel speed
  34. What is required for Anti-skid operation? 12-11
    Anti-skid switch ON AND landing gear handle down AND PL below flight idle or WOW switch activated or Average Wheel Speed above 50kts
  35. What is touchdown brake protection? 12-12
    Prevents brake application for 3 seconds after main gear compression or wheel speed exceeds 50kts
  36. Can the brakes be set without getting a CWP light? 12-12
  37. Can the brakes be set without the PARK BRK ON CWP light illuminated? 12-12
    Yes, (1500psi sets the brake, 1700psi required for light to illuminate)
  38. At what psi does the PARK BRK ON light extinguish? 12-12
    Less than 900psi
  39. What psi is required for the PARK BRK ON light to illuminate? 12-12
  40. How is the parking brake set? 12-12
    Pulling the handle up, rotating 30 degrees clockwise, and pushing the brake pedals
  41. What does the lockout switch do to the nose wheel steering system? 12-13
    When activated, inhibits tiller function to prevent NWS activation during ground handling ops
  42. When must the nose gear pin be installed? 12-13
    During pushback or towing
  43. How many degrees of steering does the NWS provide? 12-13
    60 degrees either side of center
  44. What does pushing the tiller down do electrically? 12-13
    Electrically opens the steering shutoff valve
  45. What does pushing the tiller down do mechanically? 12-13
    Mechanically engages the tiller wheel
  46. What is the purpose of the C-Clip (gear pin)? 12-13
    Deactivates the steering system for ground handling
  47. What is the max steering deflection for operations? 12-13
    120 degrees or 90 degrees (depending on MOD)
  48. Can the nose wheel rotate all the way around? 12-13
  49. What is indicated by an illuminated Anti-skid CWP light? 12-20
    A system fault or gear is down with Anti-skid off
