Flashcards in E190 AUTOFLIGHT Deck (27)
In green FLCH will the aircraft honor FMS altitude constraints?
How do you tell the aircraft to honor altitude constraints?
Select VNAV on guidance panel
This will place vertical mode into FLCH (magenta)
Climb or descend at selected speed and altitude
What indication do you see on HUD when in magenta FLCH?
What does PTH do for us in vertical mode?
Aircraft will intercept and track an FMS generated vertical path to meet vertical constraints in the FMS flight plan (1-6 degrees)
Is PTH a descent mode only or climb too?
Can you use PTH in green HDG mode?
If you are in PTH and press green HDG, what will PTH change to?
On an ILS once cleared and selecting the APP button, what do you expect to see in the FMA?
APPR 1/LOC/GS in white (armed)
Once you intercept the LOC and GS, what till the FMA display?
APPR1/LOC/GS is green
When cleared for an RNAV approach, you select APP, what do you see in the FMA?
GP in white
Once you capture the GP, what do you expect to see in the FMA?
GP in magenta
What do you see in the HUD with GP capture (RNAV)?
What does HUD A3 mean?
HUD A 3 mode is armed for CAT II/III ILS
When HUD A3/LOC/GS becomes active, would you expect to see anything in the armed fields?
RLOUT and FLARE in white
You advance the thrust levers for takeoff and TO changes from white to green. Also AT appears in green. Why?
Auto throttle takeoff mode is active
AT system is engaged
What does the TO represent in the vertical mode column?
Takeoff is active vertical mode
FD gives you:
V2 +10 (2 eng)
V2 - V2+10 (1 eng)
On takeoff through 60kts the FMA changes from TO/AT < ROLL/TO
HOLD/AT < ROLL/TO
What does HOLD mean?
HOLD is active AT mode
What alt are the ATs de energized till after takeoff?
On takeoff accelerating through 100kts, FMA changes from
HOLD/AT < ROLL/TO
HOLD/AT < TRACK/TO
FD gives bank commands to maintain ground track Airplane was on at moment of engagement
What does FD command in GA mode?
2 eng - Vref + 20
1 eng - Vac (approach climb)
With the flaps extended what is the significance of green dot?
Indicates ideal flap extension speed
On the reversionary panel, what does the white bar across the “IRS” button indicate?
The IRS is reverted
In the event of an IRS failure, will the IRS manually revert?
No. The reversion must be done manually
Is the ADS reversion an automatic or manual function?
Reversion to ADS 3 is automatic
On takeoff you lose DU3 (EICAS display) is the reversion for the EICAS automatic or manual?
Automatic. The associated MFD will display as an EICAS
During flight the captains side ACP (audio control panel) fails, the captain selects the backup vol button. What happens?
CA will be connected directly to comm 1, bypassing the digital bus
(FO side works normally)
