When the landing gear strut is not compressed.

3

When will the LOGO lights illuminate?

NAV & LOGO switch ON and main gear compressed or slats extended.

No, ANN LT TEST switch is a Maintenance function.

6

What flight deck lighting is maintained if normal electrical power is lost?

Standby compass, Captain's instruments, and right dome light.

7

What would an amber temperature indication in either the Pack Outlet Temperature or Pack Compressor Outlet Temperature indicate?

Excessive Temperature.

8

How is the Hot Air Pressure Regulating Valve controlled?

HOT AIR PB on the overhead panel.

9

If bleed air is being supplied by the APU or if one pack fails, pack flow will go to what rate?

High

10

With the APU supplying bleed air, what will be the pack flow if the PACK FLOW switch is in LOW?

High

11

There are three temperature selectors for the various zones in the aircraft. The pack controllers will deliver air at the coolest demanded temperature to the mixing units. How are the individual zone temperatures maintained comfortable if the air being demanded is always the coldest?

By mixing hot bleed air, through trim air valves into the distribution network.

12

In flight, what happens if HP bleed air pressure is insufficient?

Engine speed is increased automatically.

13

What is indicated by a FAULT light in the HOT AIR pushbutton?

Duct overheat.

14

The pack flow control valve automatically closes for engine start when the mode selector is moved to IGN/START When does the valve automatically reopen?

After successful start or 30 seconds.

15

How many motors are installed on the crossbleed valve?

Two, one for the automatic mode and one for the manual mode.

16

Can external air be used to supplement low APU bleed pressure?

No

17

If the APU bleed valve is open and the X BLEED selector is in AUTO, what is the position of the X BLEED valve?

Open

18

When would the RAM AIR pb be used?

Ventilation and/or smoke removal.

19

What happens to the outflow valve when the RAM AIR pb is selected ON?

The outflow valve opens when cabin differential pressure is less than 1 psi.

MAN.

23

With the LDG ELEV selector in Auto, what altitude is used for landing field pressurization reference?

FMGC database information.

24

With the LDG ELEV selector at 2, what would be the landing elevation?

2,000 feet
