IGNITION FOR STARTING – On the ground, the ignition comes on automatically when N2 reaches _____ and cuts off automatically when N2 reaches _____.

Correct! Wrong!

For manual starts, the FADEC has very limited authority to abort a start. The sole case is when on the ground and a start EGT exceedance occurs before 50% N2. In all other cases, it is the pilot's responsibility to interrupt the start sequence by either deselecting the manual start button or turning the engine master switch off as appropriate.

Correct! Wrong!

Correct! Wrong!

The FADEC prevents the thrust from exceeding the limit for the thrust lever position in automatic mode only.

Correct! Wrong!

The FADEC prevents the thrust from exceeding the limit for the thrust lever position in both manual and automatic modes.

What is considered to be the active range of the A/THR system?

Correct! Wrong!

There is no reverse idle detent. When the pilot moves the lever out of the idle stop by pulling up the reverse lever on the front of the thrust lever, he selects reverse idle.

Correct! Wrong!

Alpha floor protection is available:

Correct! Wrong!

The ignition system is for engine starting on the ground and restarting in flight. It consists of two identical independent circuits for each engine, normally controlled by the FADEC channel A and channel B. Each FADEC channel can control both igniters.
