  1. What is the difference between the engine and wing anti-ice fault lights?
    Both indicate valve in transit, or valve position disagrees with selected position. Wing light also could indicate low pressure.
  2. Hot air from the pneumatic system provides wing anti-ice to:
    The four outboard slats.
  3. You are on the ground and the wing anti-ice pushbutton is set to the ON position.
    Wing anti-ice valves will open for 30 seconds and then close as a ground test is initiated.
  4. With reference to the PROBE/WINDOW HEAT pushbutton, which of the following is true?
    Window heating comes on automatically after first engine start.
  5. Which one of the following statements is true?
    When the engine anti-ice is operating, continous ignition is automatically activated.
  6. When both ENG 1 and 2 pushbuttons are turned ON, each engine nacelle is anti-iced by:
    Independent bleed air source from HP compressor.
  7. If one engine anti-ice system fails, the second one takes over and provides anti-icing for both engines.
    False - Both engine anti-ice are independent.
  8. There is an inner and outer wing anti-ice valve on each wing. If the Left inner valve fails to open:
    One slat is not heated and you must avoid icing conditions.
  9. With the loss of electrical power the engine anti-ice valves:
    Fail to the open position.
  10. With the loss of electrical power the wing anti-ice valves:
    Fail to the closed position.
  11. The drain masts are heated after first engine start.
    False - The drain masts are heated any time the electrical system is powered.
  12. In the event of an electrical power loss:
    The engine anti-ice valves will open automatically, anti-icing is ensured.
  13. At what power level does window heat operate while airborne?
    High power while airborne.
  14. What happens to engine RPM when either engine anti-ice valve is open?
    The N1 limit for that engine is automatically reduced
  15. If necessary, the idle N1 is automatically increased for both engines in order to provide the required pressure.On ground and at ramp, windshields, windows and probes are heated:
    Automatically when one engine is running or manually by switching ON the PROBE/WINDOW HEAT pushbutton.
  16. Rain protection is provided by:
    • Warm bleed air blowing across the windshield.
    • Rain repellent and Windshield wipers.
  17. In flight, if both windshields automatic heat has failed:
    • Probe/Window Heat pushbutton should be set to ON.
    • Both Window Heat Computers have failed and Window Heat pushbutton will not recover heat.
    • Probe/Window Heat pushbutton should be set to OFF and back to AUTO.
  18. The probe heaters can be activated manually prior to engine start by placing the PROBE/WINDOW HEAT pushbutton.
  19. What happens to the heat at the drain masts when the aircraft is on the ground?
    The heat is reduced to prevent injury to ground personel.
  20. If Captain's pitot heat has failed:
    Captain can recover his air data by using air data switching.
  21. The RAIN RPLNT (rain repellent) pushbutton is inhibited on the ground when the engines stopped.
  22. TAT probes are heated on the ground.
