    The handle and fire bottle in the right wheel well.
  13. What is the APU start limitation?
    Wait 90 seconds after start attempts. If APU fails after 3rd attempt then call dispatch/mx.
  14. When must the APU bleed valve be closed?

    • -#1 engine bleed valve is OPEN
    • -isolation valve and #2 engine bleed are OPEN.
  15. How long should the APU operate with no Bleedair load prior to shutdown?

    How long after the APU GEN OFF BUS light extinguishes before turning the battery switch to OFF?
    1 minute

    2 minutes
  16. What does a WING BODY OVERHEAT light indicate?

    What is the difference betweeen a left and right WING BODY OVERHEAT?
    a bleed duct leak has created an overheat condition. 

    both monitor the a/c bay, leading edge and engine strut. Left side also monitors the keel beam and bleed duct from APU.
  17. What does the TRIM AIR switch do?
    introduces trim air downstream from the mix manifold. trim air is excess air taken from the bleed source before entering the PACK.
  18. What does the AUTO FAIL light indicate?
    • -Loss of DC Power
    • - controller fault
    • -outflow valve control fault
    • -excessive diff pressure
    • -excessive rate of climb pressure change
    • -High cabin altitude
  19. What does the CAPT PITOT indicate?
    Where is the Probe located?
    Are NG static ports heated? U
    How does the AUTO feature for the Probe work?
    • The related probe is not heated.
    • Captain's side upper probe.
    • NO.
    • Both systems are powered when engines are running.
  20. What is max speed with window heat inoperative?
    250kts below 10,000'
  21. What is the difference between PWS Caution and PWS Warning?
    When are PWS warnings inhibited?

    • Warning - "Windshear Ahead"

    • >100kts below50 Ft AGL on Takeoff
    • >60kts on approach.
  22. Where is the HF antenna located?
    On the front of the vertical tail.

    • V-erbalize
    • V-erify
    • M-onitor
    • I-ntervene
  24. What FMA indication will you receive at TOD?

    What does ARM indicate on FMA?
    Autothrottle will retard to idle. FMA will display RETARD and then ARM.

    No Autothrottle mode is engaged.
  25. What is the policy regarding flight directors?
    What is our policy regarding CWS pitch or roll?
    • Both Flight directors remain in view and be used at all times when correct path guidance is available.
    • CWS only used momentarily.
  26. When would you push TOGA button a second time?
    • If full go around thrust is desired. 
    • if missed has a nonstandard climb gradient.
  27. In which airplane will the generator drive disconnect automatically

    • NG-smoke detection and only had one bottle that lasts for 60 min.
  30. What is the difference between the classic and NG fuel pumps?
    • Both have six pumps. the classic center check valves open at a lower pressure than the main tank check valves. ensuring center tank fuel is used first.
    • NG - center pumps operate at a higher pressure

    • TR3- 0 Amps and 0 volts

    • NG- TR UNIT annunciator indicates
    • on the ground- single failure of TR1, TR2 or TR3.
