Flashcards in Warning Systems Deck (27)
Which TCAS traffic categories generate maneuver commands on the PFD?
Resolution Advisories only.
Which TCAS categories generate voice aural alerts?
TCAS RA and TA
Does a TA require an avoidance maneuver?
What are the 4 categories of TCAS traffic displayed on the ND?
RA, TA, Proximate traffic, Other traffic
How is each TCAS traffic category displayed on ND?
RA - Red
TA - Amber
Proximate traffic - Solid white
Other traffic - Open white
Which ND modes will not display TCAS traffic?
Will the caption "TRAFFIC" appear in all ND modes?
Name the default display on SYS synoptic display on the ground before engine start.
Name the default display on SYS synoptic display on the ground after engine start.
Flight controls synoptic display
Name the default display on SYS synoptic display in flight
Fuel synoptic display
Name the default display on SYS synoptic display on the ground after landing.
Is the predictive windshear warning active at all altitudes?
In flight, WX radar begins scanning for windshear below 2300'RA and PWS alerts are enabled below 1200'RA.
What is the significance of an advisory message being at the top of its list?
That message has the highest priority within it's group.
Under what conditions will secondary engine instruments automatically display?
-When display first receives power
-Pressing the ENG switch
-N2 below idle in flight
-Exceeding any secondary parameter
-Fuel control switch moved to CUTOFF
-Start selector in START
-Engine fire switch pulled in flight
What is the effect of pressing the EICAS event record switch?
It records up to 5 EICAS events in to memory.
Describe TAMS. Where does it appear and when?
Thrust Asymmetry Minimum Airspeed
Provides situational awareness to the pilots by showing the minimum control speed with a large thrust asymmetry.
-Displayed on PFD & HUD speed tapes
When is the status queue inhibited?
From T/O thrust set to 800'RA or 30 sec after liftoff.
When are master caution lights and sound alerts inhibited on takeoff?
From 80kts to 400'RA or 20 sec after liftoff.
-EICAS messages still shown
When are communication messages and sound alerts inhibited on takeoff?
From T/O thrust set to 400'RA or 20 sec after liftoff.
-Except cabin alerts
When are altitude alerts inhibited?
After G/S capture or LDG flaps set and Gear down.
When are master warning lights and sound alerts inhibited on takeoff?
From V1/VR to 400'RA or V1+25 sec after liftoff.
-Warning messages still shown on EICAS.
When is master caution light and sound inhibited on approach/landing?
From 200'RA to 75kts.
When are communication messages, Status cue and sound alerts inhibited on landing?
From 800'RA to 75 kts.
Which EICAS caution messages are not inhibited att 200'RA on approach with LAND2/LAND3 displayed?
How long after the WX radar begins scanning for wind shear are PWS alerts enabled?
What is the aural PWS caution message?
"Monitor radar display"
