    • Airspeed Protection Computation (Alpha Prot, high/low limits, maneuvering speed, PFD speed scale
    • Windshear Protection
    • Low Energy Warning Protection "Speed, Speed, Speed"
  14. FLT CTL Panel

    Is full rudder deflection available in all regimes?
    No. Rudder deflection is limited as a function of airspeed.
  15. FLT CTL Panel

    What is the computer and priority for the Ailerons?
    ELAC 1 -> ELAC 2

    What is the computer and priority for the Elevator and Trimmable Horizontal Stabilizer?
    ELAC 2 -> ELAC 1 -> SEC 2 -> SEC 1
  17. FLT CTL Panel

    How are the flight control surfaces controlled and actuated?
    All surfaces are controlled electrically and actuated hydraulically.
  18. FLT CTL Panel

    When is automatic pitch trim available?
    In flight under Normal Law with a bank angle < 33 degrees with, or without, the autopilot engaged.
  19. FLT CTL Panel

    If the active elevator actuator fails, what occurs?
    Control is transferred to the other actuator.
  20. FLT CTL Panel

    How is roll control normally achieved?
    1 aileron and 4 spoilers on each wing.
  21. FLT CTL Panel

    If both FACs fail is maximum rudder deflection available?
    Yes - after slat extension.
  22. EVAC Panel

    What is checked on the EVAC panel during the COCKPIT PREPARATION check?
    • CAPT & PURS switch in CAPT position
    • COMMAND push button is guarded
  23. EVAC Panel

    How would the flight crew command an evacuation?
    Make a PA announcement: "EVACUATE, EVACUATE, EVACUATE" (GOM 06.14.02.02)Press the EVAC COMMAND push buttonSilence the EVAC alarm on the flight deck by puchsing the EVAC HORN SHUT OFF push button
  24. EVAC Panel

    What would happen if the EVAC COMMAND push button is pressed a 2nd time?
    The evacuation alert is cancelled.
  25. EMER ELEC PWR Panel

    What buses are powered by the emergency generator?
    • AC ESS and AC ESS SHED
    • DC ESS and DC ESS SHED
  26. EMER ELEC PWR Panel

    What three things doe the RAT & EMER GEN red FAULT light indicate?

  27. EMER ELEC PWR Panel

    What is the function of the RAT & EMER GEN push button?

  38. EMER ELEC PWR Panel

    What does the amber SMOKE light in the GEN 1 LINE push button indicate?

    Will there be any other indications?
    Smoke detected in the avionices ventilation ducting.

    Other inidcations would be a ECAM warning and amber FAULT lights in the EXTRACT and BLOWER push buttons.

    Pressing the SYS push button does what?
    Inhibit all EGPWS warnings except TERR system.
  40. GPWS Panel

    What does an amber FAULT light in the SYS push button indicate on the GPWS panel?
    Any failure of GPWS modes 1 through 5.

    • Mode 1 - Excessive descent rate "Sink Rate"
    • Mode 2 - Excessive terrain closure "Terrain Terrain"
    • Mode 3 - Altitude loss after takeoff "Don't Sink"
    • Mode 4 - Unsafe terrain clearance "Too Low Flaps, Too Low Gear"
    • Mode 5 - Excessive GS deviation "Glideslope"
  41. GPWS Panel

    Does any failure of the GPWS modes 1 through 5, indicated by an amber FAULT light in the SYS push button, affect the TERRAIN mode?
    No
  42. GPWS Panel

    What does LDG FLAP 3 ON light indicate?
