  6. Will the cockpit dome light illuminate on an unpowered airplane?
    Only if the flight attendant panel ‘COURTESY LIGHTS’ switch is in ‘AUTO’
  7. How are the emergency lights charged?
    4 ELPUs (Emergency Light Power Units) charged off the DC BUS 1
  8. How long will the emergency lights last once illuminated?
    10 minutes
  9. When will the emergency lights automatically illuminate?
    Provided the switch is in ‘AUTO’, if the DC BUSSES lose power or the airplane’s electrical power is turned off,the emergency lights will automatically illuminate
  10. Where does the flight attendant check the potable water quantity and waste service
    Aft flight attendant panel
  11. What does a Waste Service Tank light mean on the aft flight attendant panel? Tank Full light?
    • Tank is 75% full

    • Tank is full
  12. What does a ‘fault’ light mean on the aft flight attendant panel?
    • A fault in the forward or aft drain valve

    • Water level indication is not available
  13. Where is door information presented?
    MFD ‘STATUS’ page
  14. What is the purpose of a vent flap on the main cabin or service doors?
    • A load is applied to the vent flap/locking mechanism making a door difficult to open as cabin pressureincreases

    • To relieve residual cabin pressure prior to opening the main cabin or service doors
  15. What happens if a pilot selects ‘EMER’ on the audio panel?
    • A red light on the Cabin Light rainbow illuminates

    • 3 hi-lo chimes sound in the cabin
  16. When is the emergency escape slide automatically disarmed?
    If the main cabin or service doors are opened from outside the aircraft
  17. What indication(s) are present to confirm whether or not the escape slides are armed or disarmed?
    • Armed:           Red ‘ARMED’ appears above the respective door handle

    • Disarmed:       Green ‘DISARMED’ appears above the respective door handle

    30 seconds after the flight attendant ‘EMER CALL’ button has been pushed if the ‘INHIBIT’ button has notbeen pushed by the flight crew
  19. What happens if the flight crew pushes the ‘INHIBIT’ button?
    The automatic open function is inhibited for 500 seconds
  20. What are the cockpit door blowout panels?
    • Unfolding panels in the cockpit door that help equalize pressure between the cockpit and cabin during adecompression

    • Door retains full ballistic and impact characteristics if panels unfold
  21. How is the DVDR activated?
    • Turned on through the MCDU

    • Automatically turns on when an engine is running

    • Automatically turns off with weight-on-wheels and engines not running
  22. How many DVDRs are installed?
    2 – 1 forward and 1 aft
  23. How long will the DVDR record?
    • 2 hours of voice and radio communications

    Yes, the airplane must be on the ground with the parking brake set
  25. What pressurizes the potable water storage tank?
    Engine or APU bleed air.

    If bleed air is not available or below optimal range then a air compressor pressurizes the water system.
  26. If the AC GPU is to be used to power the aircraft what should be seen on the GPU panel?

  29. What transports the waste?
    At and below 18000 - A vacuum generator is used to create differential pressure.

    Above 18000 - Differential pressure between the cabin pressure and ambient pressure is sufficient to transport the waste.
