Flashcards in Preformance Deck (23)
What is used to establish the ground stopping distance on dry runways?
spoilers and antiskid brakes only. Reverse thrust is not used.
How Takeoff Performance data is constructed?
using 50% of reported headwind components and 150% of reported tailwind components measured at a height of 50 ft.
1. In general, how do flaps settings and climb speeds improve second segment climb performance?
Lower flap settings and higher climb speeds (Improved Climb) provide better second segment climb weights.
2. Define engine failure acceleration (EFAH).
The standard EFAH is derived by adding 500 ft to the airport elevation.
3. How is engine failure climb profile impacted with an Obstacle Clearance Height (OCH) listed on the TPR?
If an Obstacle Clearance Height is listed, then continue to climb past 1500 ft at clean maneuver speed to the Obstacle Clearance Height.
4. Where are Engine Failure Turn Procedures (TPRO) found?
TPROs) are listed in the 10-7
5. Are you required to proceed to the designated drift down alternate in the event of an engine failure to en route?
No nearest suitably
6. Describe the Zero Net Gradient solution (labeled as "Terrain Clearance " on the flight paperwork).
Clear all terrain by 1000 feet and 5 sm.
7. Describe the Zero Net Gradient solution (labeled as "Mountain drift down" on the flight paperwork).
Clear terrain by 2000 feet and 5sm.
8. What is the rapid cabin depressurization descent profile?
descended to FL100 within twelve minutes.
9. Is Landing Climb Limit Weight controlling during inflight analysis of runway conditions?
10. What is degraded Breaking Action Landing Distance data?
Factored. DBALD includes TR credit.
11. Is a Takeoff Performance Report for an intersection takeoff also valid for full-length takeoffs?
12. When is de-rated takeoff thrust not authorized?
Wind Shear conditions
13. What are the types of Landing Data available from ACARS?
No-normal, Wet, Dry and DBALD
14. Is Non-Normal Configuration Performance data certified AFM data?
No. Advisory only
15. When must you brief Latest Touchdown Point (LTP)?
Less then 7000 feet of runway or breaking action less then Good.
16. How do you determine the Latest Touchdown Point (LTP)?
17. What is the priority of various landing performance assessment information reports (Pilot Report, Runway Surface Conditions, etc.)?
Pilot report from similar type aircraft ,FICON and runway report number.
18. What is the definition of MAX altitude?
Maximum altitude is the highest altitude at which the aircraft can be operated. In three ways
1. maximum certified altitude (structural)
2. thrust limited altitude
3. buffet or maneuver limited altitude
19.What is the the of Optimum altitude based on?
based on aircraft gross weight and cruise speed in still air
20. What is ECON cruise?
ECON cruise is a variable speed schedule that is a function of gross weight, cruise altitude, cost index, and headwind or tailwind component.
