A-SKID PRINCIPLE - When the speed of a wheel decreases below the individual target speed, a brake release order is generated and combined with the braking orders of the flight crew or of the autobrake to maintain this target speed.

Correct! Wrong!

Correct! Wrong!

The Backup Steering Function (BSF) permits the flight crew to steer the aircraft when the Nose Wheel Steering (NWS) is failed and the nose wheel is free to swivel, or when the yellow hydraulic circuit is lost. The BSF permits to vacate the runway using the normal steering controls (i.e. steering handwheels and rudder pedals). The maximum NWS angle:

Correct! Wrong!

The Brakes Control System (BRAKES CTL) controls the normal, and the alternate braking modes. The system has two redundant modules, referred to as Brakes Control System 1 (BRAKES CTL 1) and BRAKES CTL 2. The two systems are always active.

Correct! Wrong!

One BRAKES CTL is active when the other one is a backup.

The landing gear gravity extension reset function can be used in flight but only for special conditions.

Correct! Wrong!

The landing gear gravity extension reset function must not be used in flight. The landing gear gravity extension must be reset only on ground by maintenance personnel (refer to FCOM Limitations chapter).

The Landing Gear Extension Retraction System (LGERS) is pressurized at all time.

Correct! Wrong!

The LGERS is pressurized only during the extension and the retraction phases. At all other flight phases, the LGERS is isolated from hydraulic pressure by closing the isolation valves

Use of parking brake while aircraft is moving is prohibited unless in emergency.

Correct! Wrong!

The red arrow comes on and flashes when:

Correct! Wrong!

Green and yellow brake accumulators are installed in different positions in the aircraft. As a consequence, depending on the temperature, a difference can be noticed between the pressure of the green and yellow brake accumulators.

Correct! Wrong!

DEACTIVATION OF THE BASIC AUTOBRAKE MODE - Once engaged, the basic autobrake mode deactivates/disengages and reverts to armed state if the ground spoilers are retracted and either the ground speed is _____, or at least one thrust lever is at or above MCT.

Correct! Wrong!

The braking system is not designed to hold the aircraft in a stationary position when a high thrust level is applied on at least one engine. During ground procedures that require a thrust increase with braking, the flight crew must ensure that the aircraft remains stationary.

Correct! Wrong!

Refer to FCOM Limitations chapter.
