The GPWS includes five basic modes active up to radio height of ______

Correct! Wrong!

Excessive rate of descent (Mode 1) - Excessive terrain closure rate (Mode 2) - Altitude loss after takeoff or go-around (Mode 3) - Terrain clearance not sufficient, if not in landing configuration (Mode 4) - Excessive descent below the glide slope (Mode 5).

The aural alerts of the Predictive WindShear System (PWS) have priority over:

Correct! Wrong!

The GPWS computes the geometric altitude of the aircraft by using:

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS aural warning "MONITOR VERTICAL SPEED":

Correct! Wrong!

The TCAS includes:

Correct! Wrong!

With a weather radar used in WX or WX/TURB mode:

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS ND Indication - When TCAS information has to be displayed on the vertical speed scale, the grey background of the air speed and heading scales are removed.

Correct! Wrong!

The terrain data are displayed on the ND and the brightness is controlled via the weather radar brightness control knob. If the weather radar brightness was set to low (due to bad weather) and a terrain alert occurs, then the brightness of the terrain display will be automatically brightened.

Correct! Wrong!

If the weather radar brightness was set to low (due to bad weather) and a terrain alert occurs, then the brightness of the terrain display will also be low.

WINDSHEAR ALERTS INHIBITION - At takeoff, alerts are inhibited above 100 kt and _____.

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS ND INDICATION - If the range of an intruder is not available, the intruder is not displayed. An intruder may be partially displayed when its range is out of scale.

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS ND INDICATIONS - The traffic is displayed in all ROSE modes and ARC mode whatever NM range is selected. Only the _____ most threatening intruders are displayed.

Correct! Wrong!

The aural alerts of the Predictive WindShear System (PWS) are inhibited by reactive windshear detection and aural messages of stall warnings.

Correct! Wrong!

When the TCAS is operating in TA ONLY mode all RAs are inhibited and converted into TAs (TCAS flight guidance mode is inhibited).

Correct! Wrong!

W/S AHEAD message on the PFD - This message is displayed, when the Predictive WindShear system detects windshear ahead of the aircraft.

Correct! Wrong!

In MAP mode, the radar operates in ground mapping mode:

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS Resolution Advisory (RA) - This information represents a real collision threat with an intruder aircraft. The estimated time (TAU) before reaching the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) between your aircraft and the intruder is about:

Correct! Wrong!

The TILT knob adjusts antenna tilt above and below the horizon. Zero indicates the horizon reference, as provided by

Correct! Wrong!

WINDSHEAR ALERTS DURING TAKEOFF ROLL, UP TO 100 KNOTS - During the takeoff roll, up to 100 kt, both warnings and cautions are available within a range of:

Correct! Wrong!

This is also applicable during taxi when CAPT or F/O display mode is different from OFF.

In some operational conditions, the performance of the weather radar may be below its standard level at detection ranges above 80 NM. This reduced performance of the weather radar above 80 NM can result in an underestimation, or late detection of the weather by the flight crew.

Correct! Wrong!

Resolution advisory in climb is inhibited:

Correct! Wrong!

The flight crew can display weather data on the Captain and/or First-Officer NDs:

Correct! Wrong!

WINDSHEAR ALERTS INHIBITION - During landing, alerts are inhibited below _____

Correct! Wrong!

When the weather radar is in "Autotilt" mode, using the EGPWS terrain database, the radar automatically adjusts the antenna tilt based on:

Correct! Wrong!

The TCAS detection capability is limited to intruders flying within a maximum range of 30 NM on either sides and approximately 30 NM to 100 NM longitudinally (depending on aircraft configuration and external conditions), and within a maximum altitude range of _____ above and below the aircraft.

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS Traffic Advisory (TA) - This information represents a potential collision threat with an intruder aircraft. The estimated time (TAU) before reaching the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) between your aircraft and the intruder is about:

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS ND Indication - The relative altitude/Vertical Speed arrow is displayed only if the intruder vertical speed is greater than _____

Correct! Wrong!

For intruders that do not report their altitude:

Correct! Wrong!

TCAS ADVISORY INHIBITION - "Descend RA below 1 200 ft AGL are inhibited in climb and in descent.

Correct! Wrong!

“Descend” RA below 1 200 ft AGL in climb or 1 000 ft AGL in descent.

TILT Mode switch - in AUTO mode, the system automatically selects tilt to optimize weather detection and minimize ground clutter.

Correct! Wrong!

ND TCAS MODE AND RANGE MESSAGES - Some messages can be displayed to draw pilot’s attention. This amber "TCAS : REDUCE RANGE " message will be displayed if:

Correct! Wrong!
