May passengers bring their own portable oxygen concentrators (POC) onboard? (6.9.4.b)

Yes, as long as they have been approved by the FAA.


How often must the altimeters be checked while in flight in RVSM airspace overwater? (6.11.6.d)

Once per hour, and it must be recorded on the Master Document.


Must RNAV approaches only be performed according to the procedures found in the FMS database? (6.2.8.)



How must supplemental O2 tanks be stored onboard? (6.9.3.c)

Secured. The weight and balance must also reflect their presence.

1. Printed 2. Written down 3. Electronic, if the flight is short-notice


What are the weight and balance considerations when jumpseaters are onboard? (6.19.5.a-b.)

1. They will be included in W&B calculations 2. They will be added to the passenger count in FOS


How often will the crew conduct an in-flight fuel check? (6.6.3.)

1) TOC 2)TOD 3) Every 90 minutes a) Possibly less at or abeam flight plan waypoints


What information does an XO format flight plan contain? (6.1.c)

1. Routing 2. Fuel Requirements 3. Flight Times

A Level 4 release is required.


In determining takeoff performance, corrections will be made for what factors? (6.10.2.a-e)
