  1. 1.) How often do FO’s require a PC &/or PT?
    • 1.) A PC is required every 24 months 
    • 2.) A PC or PT is required within the last 12 months 
    •       (FOM, 2-8)
  2. 2.) For recency of experience requirements, what is required for TO’s and Landings?
    • - At least three (3) takeoffs and landings within the preceding 90 days in the aircraft to which he is assigned,
    • - Only one of the three required landings can be an “autoland.”
    • - These three (3) takeoffs and landings can be performed in a simulator approved under FAR 121.407.
    • - (FOM, 3-6)
  3. 3.) Prior to a crew being dispatched to, or performing an autoland with weather conditions below Cat I minimums (Cat II/III), what is required?
    • - AirTran requires that both of the crewmembers have performed an autoland in the actual aircraft within the last sixty (60) days.
    • - (FOM, 3-6)
  4.  4.) Where can one find Metar/TAF codes?
    • - Metar – FOM, 4-43
    • - TAF – FOM, 4-48
  5. 5.) What are the Maximum holding speeds (domestic)?
    • - MHA through 6,000'                   200 kts 
    • - Above 6,000 through 14,000'      230 or 210 where published 
    • - Above 14,000'                          265 kts 
    • - The initial outbound leg should be flown for 1 min. up to 14,000’ or 1 ½ min’s above 14,000’. 
    • - (FOM, 5-98)
  6. 6.) When is an approach required to be stabilized by?
    • - On Precision approaches, the aircraft should be in landing configuration on glideslope, 1,500 feet above Touch Down Zone Elevation (TDZE). Engines should be spooled up by 1000 feet.
    • - On Non-Precision approaches the aircraft should be in landing configuration no later than the final approach fix. Descent rates should never exceed 1200 FPM unless briefed; in no case should 1500 FPM be exceeded. Engines should be spooled up by 1000 feet.
    • - On Visual approaches the aircraft should be in landing configuration with the engines spooled up by 1,000 feet above field elevation.
    • -         (FOM, 5-105)
  7. 7.) What is different on a visual approach at night from one during the daytime?
    • - At night, when cleared for a visual approach, fly to and cross the FAF at the published altitude and perform a visual approach from that point. 
    • - (FOM, 5-106)
  8. 8.) What are the Standard Category I ILS Minimums?
    • - Visibility – ¾ mile or RVR 4000
    • - DA/DH not less than 200 feet.
    • - (FOM, 5-111)
  9. 9.) If weather is below 300 feet and less than 3/4 of a mile (RVR less than 4000 feet), what is required to shoot an approach?
    • - An autopilot coupled approach should be attempted (not necessarily an autoland.)
    • - (FOM, 5-111)
  10. 10.) What are the off shore limits that we are authorized to operate to with and without rafts?
    • - Extended over-water ops are authorized up to 162 NM from nearest shoreline without rafts.
    • - Ops out to 405 NM from an adequate airport are authorized with rafts.
    • - (FOM, 10-13, & OpSpec A013-2)
  11. 11.) Along with a visibility minimum, what do some international approaches also require?
    • - A minimum ceiling requirement may also be required.
    • - (FOM, 10-37)
  12. 12.) What are the lowest minimums we can use in Latin America?
    • - ½ mile or 800 meters & 200’ ceiling, except for Aruba
    • - Aruba has RVR, so you can use what is on the plate
    • - (FOM, slide in CrewPlace review)
  13. 13.) What are the taxi visibility minimums?
    • - Minimums required to conduct the takeoff or landing operation
    • - (FOM, 5-38)
  14. 14.) What are Standard Take Off minimums?
    • - 1 mile or 5000’
    • - (FOM, OpSpec C056)
  15. 15.) When is the captain required to make the TO or Landing?
    • - The Captain will always make the landing during Cat II/III operations 
    • - Any time the runway braking action is less than “good” the Captain will perform the takeoff or landing 
    • - When abnormal conditions exist, the Captain will exercise his/her prerogative to manipulate the controls if he feels the situation dictates 
    • - (FOM, 5-42)
  16. 16.) If a captain makes the TO, due to abnormal conditions, and then would like to transfer control to the FO, when may the transfer be made?
    • - After the completion of the climb check 
    • - (FOM, 5-42)
  17. 17.) Normally, when will the first turn after takeoff be made?
    • -  After reaching an altitude of 1000’AGL unless one of the following conditions are met: 
    • • Turns may be initiated above 400 feet if:
    • • The SID requires the turn or allows the turn, or
    • • In VMC and the Capt. desires a turn (Obst. Avoid. is by visual), or
    • • The TLR states “EARLY ALL ENG OPERATING TURN
    •        ABOVE 400 FT OK”
    • - Turns may be initiated between 50 feet and 400 feet if:
    • • Required by the single engine departure procedure in the TLR, or
    • • In VMC conditions, and in extreme cases. The FARs allow turns
    •      to be initiated as low as 50’ AGL. (FAR 121.189)
    •     Any turns initiated below 400 feet are limited to 15° of bank. 
    • - (FOM, 5-73)

    • - 3/4 mile or RVR 4000’ 
    • - (FOM, 5-100)
  20. 20.) If, in the Pilot’s opinion, the runway length is close to the table’s calculated landing distance, what Auto-brake setting should be used?
    • - MAX, and transition to maximum manual braking as soon as possible after touchdown. 
    • - (FOM, 5-101)
  21. 21.) What is different about shooting an approach using IAN outside of the USA?
    • - A “DERIVED DA” must be created and used.
    • - If MDA minimums are published, add 50 feet to the published CAT C approach minimums (baro) and set that value in the BARO MINS selector on the MCP. 
    • - (FOM, Ops Spec C073, AOM, P/T - 22.15 International Ops)
  22. How many miles should we avoid thunderstorm build-ups by?
    • • 10,000' and below: 5 miles
    • • 10,000' - 25,000: 10 miles
