    Reference: AOM Chapter 11
  68. 68.) After holding, you are on a vector for the approach and the FMC shows that you will land with 4100 lbs. of fuel.  However, after you finish programming the approach, landing fuel now indicates 3800 lbs. Should you declare Minimum Fuel to ATC at this point?
    • You should verify that the routing in the FMC is truly the distance you will fly.
    • There are situations where quickly programming an approach will add 30 or more miles to your routing that you will not actually fly.
    • If the Captain (or Dispatcher) determines that landing fuel will be less than 4000 lbs, the Captain will declare Minimum Fuel. 

    Reference: FOM Chapter 17
  69. 69.) You’re the PF on a Flaps 40 approach in the weather.  Autothrottles and autopilot are engaged. At Decision Altitude, the runway environment is not in sight. To direct a Missed Approach, the correct callout is:

    - The window will open when:

    • - a manual selection of Vertical Speed or Level Change,
    • - the Autopilot is engaged, or
    • - the Flight Director transitions to Altitude Acquire. 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 11, FRM Chapter 4
  75. 75.) During the missed approach, what guidance will the Flight Director be giving in Pitch? In Roll Mode?
    • - Pitch: - 15 degrees nose up until reaching programmed rate of climb,                       
    •            - then –                       
    •            - target airspeed for each flap setting.            

    • - Roll:  - Ground track at time of engagement.           
    •             - When a missed approach exists in the FMC, the go-around track hold mode will automatically transition to LNAV.

  76. 76.) What is the maximum Takeoff and Landing Pressure Altitude limit?
    - 8,400 Feet 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 3
  77. 77.) You are landing in an -800 equipped with Split Scimitar Winglets. What bank angle at touchdown will result in the lower ventral strake hitting the ground?
    - 8.8° 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 3
  78. 78.) What is the maximum crosswind to ensure sufficient ground clearance using the “wing low” crosswind landing technique alone?
    - 15 knots of crosswind 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 3
  79. 79.) What is the maximum speed to exit via a high speed taxiway?
    - 60 knots ground speed 

    Reference: Jeppesen Glossary
  80. 80.) On short final in your -800, sudden loss of airspeed occurs due to a -10 knot gust. You add some thrust, but the aircraft experiences a high, hard bounce. At this point, what should you do?
    • - Initiate a go-around.
    • - Apply go-around thrust and use normal go-around procedures. 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 12
  81. 81.) If you elect to try and “save” the landing described above, what could occur?
    • - A tail strike could occur.
    • - If higher-than-idle power is maintained through initial touchdown, automatic speedbrake deployment may be disabled even when speedbrakes are armed.
    • - During the resultant bounce, if thrust levers are then retarded to idle, automatic speedbrake deployment can occur.
    • - This will result in a loss of lift and nose-up pitching moment that can result in a tail strike or hard landing.
    • - Almost all tail strikes that occur during landing result in significant damage to the aircraft. 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 12
  82. 82.) After landing, during taxi in, a MASTER CAUTION light comes on, but is promptly reset without noting the specific cause. Is this the proper procedure? What important malfunction could be missed?
    • - No, this is not the proper procedure.
    • - All MASTER CAUTION lights should be investigated, no matter what phase of flight.
    • - An ENGINE CONTROL (NG only) light (which only occurs on the ground and with the engine operating) could be missed, potentially causing a significant delay on the next flight. 

    Reference: FRM Chapter 7
  83. 83.) After engine shutdown, you get an FMS message (NG only) stating a Flap 30 limit was exceeded, max speed 174.8. What must you do now?
    • - You must write up the flap exceedance in the logbook.
    • - Notify Dispatch and Maintenance Control. 

    Reference: FOM Chapter 19
  84. 84.) Maintenance Control says to document the exceedance using an “Info Only” logbook entry. Is this OK?
    - An “Info Only” write up for any flap overspeed is not correct. 

    Reference: FOM Chapter 19
  85. 85.) In the gate area, a 90 degree turn into the gate is required. You decide to lead the turn, with your nose gear aligning on the J-line just before the Ramp Agent stops your aircraft. Is this the proper procedure? What might result in this case?
    • - This is not the correct procedure.
    • - Align the aircraft properly from the top of the J-line.
    • - Otherwise, a “tail drift” could result and the entire aircraft might not be inside the safety zone at shut down. 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 13
  86. 86.) You are terminating your NG aircraft at an out station with no Southwest Maintenance. Your #1 Engine oil quantity during the Parking Checklist is 62 percent. Do you need to request oil servicing?
    • - Yes,
    • - 65% is the minimum NG terminating oil quantity for non-Southwest Maintenance bases. 

    Reference: AOM Chapter 3
  87. 87.) Below what quantity must you request servicing when terminating a Classic at an out station with no Southwest Maintenance?
    - 2.5 gallons.  

    Reference: AOM Chapter 3
  88. 88.) You experience an aircraft malfunction during a flight, but successfully complete the flight and arrive at the planned gate. A Maintenance Technician meets the aircraft, and you describe the malfunction in detail to him. He acknowledges the problem and leaves to contact Maintenance Control, while you clean up the cockpit to get ready to go the hotel. Have you completed your duties?
    • - No. Flight Deck Crew Members are responsible for recording any mechanical defects encountered or observed during operation of the aircraft. 
    • - Complete the logbook write-up and ensure the Mechanic has no further questions regarding the malfunction. 

    Reference: FOM Chapter 19
  89. 89.) You have just landed your NextGen aircraft in San Diego after a flight of 4 hours. The fuel temperature reads 0 degrees C. What must you consider? Why?
    • - When the fuel tank temperature is less than 5° C, check for cold-soaked fuel frost (CSFF) on both surfaces of the wing.
    • - The B737 is susceptible on both upper and lower wing surfaces, most notably between the fuselage and the engine pylon.
    • - Check the wings for CSFF ten to 15 minutes after gate arrival.
    • - Cold soaked fuel frost up to 1/8" on the lower wing is permissible, but no CSFF on the upper wing surface is allowed. 

    • 3 methods are approved for CSFF removal:  
    •   - Radiant heating,  
    •   - adding fuel to raise the fuel tank temperature to 5° C or  
    •   - Type I deicing.
