Left CCR

18

How long does the CCR take to power up?

Approximately 2-3 minutes

19

What causes the passenger oxygen masks to deploy?
Automatically and manually?

Masks deploy automatically prior to:
-cabin altitude reaching 15,000'
-origin airfield altitude +2000'
-destination airfield altitude +2000'
Mask deploy manually by pushing the PASS OXYGEN switch ON.
