    • Opration between 105.1 to 106% rpm is permissible to the next landing.
    • If N2 exceed 106% rpm Shut down the engine using the
    • Precasutionary/practice engine shutdown (sec 3)

    -1 pg 5-3
  5. Maximum EGT for starting, max for continuous thrust and max for takeoff?
    • starting 725, continuous 870 and takeoff 905
    • EGT betw/ 906 to 930 limited to 5 min
    • EGT exceets 930 shut it down using Engine Fire/Failure during flight checklist

    • starting -50 to 10, continuous -10 to 160, limited 160 to 175(limited to 10 minutes), maximum 175
    • if temp exceeds 175 shut down using precautionary/prac eng shutdown
    • TRT limit 5 to 160 except EWO

    -1 pg 5-3
  7. Cabin differential pressure caution range and maximum?
    caution 8.6 to 9.42 and maximum 9.42

    - 1 pg 5-3
  8. What is the oil pressure minimum, continuous operation and maximum? What fluctuations are allowable?
    11psi, 11-92psi, 92 and fluctuations of 10 psi but must be in the normal range
  9. What do the markings on the DC loadmeter mean? What is the gage tolerance?
    • Red 0 = Danger, Green 0-1 = normal, 1.0-1.1 yellow Caution.
    • Gage tollerance is +/- 3%, allows a no-load indication on the red side of the 0 marking so as long as the needle does not go below the first index mark
  10. What are the DC volts needed for the main and apu battery?
    • AC power off: Caution < 24 volts; Normal >24volts
    • AC power on: Caution < 24 volts Normal >24 to 29 volts Caution >29 volts
  11. What is the volts need for TR1 and TR2?
    Caution <24 volts; Normal 24 to 30 volts; Caution > 30 volts
  12. What is the normal and low range (high charge) on battery charging current ammeter?
    Green arc 0-7 = normal; yellow 7-30 low (charge battery before takeoff except for emergency conditions)
  13. What are minimum, caution, normal, and maximum volts for the AC systems?
    minimum 180 red; caution 180 to 190 yellow; 190 to 210 normal green; 210 to 220 caution yellow; 220 maximum red
  14. What is the maximum amps on the AC ammeter?
    116 amps
  15. What are the minimum, caution, normal, and maximum hertz for the AC frequency?
    380 red minimum; 380-395 caution yellow; 395-405 normal; 405-420 caution; 420 red maximum
  16. Whare are the minimum, normal and maximum % RPM for the APU?
    100% min red; 100% to 103% normal green; 103% max red
  17. What is the normal and maximum hydrualic pressure for the apu start accumulator?
    normal green 2650-3350 (3000 + 350); 3350 max red
  18. What is the nominal hydraulic pressure for the apu sugre damper?
    1600 psi nominal
  19. What is the accumulator preload (70F), normal range and maximum hydraulic pressure?
    • 2000 psi(70F) accumulator preload; 2400 to 3050 psi nomal; 3050 max
    • Note: normal system pressure is 3025 psi, occasional surges in a system (due to spoiler blowdown or other reasons) can cause indications of 3500 psi. These higher pressures will bleed off from the main system; however, 3500 psi is retained in the reserve brake and boom hydraulic accumulators until the respective units are used.
    • Becasue of gage tolerances, hydrasulic pressure can read as high as 3200 psi under normal conditions. Gage reading betw/ 3050 and 3200 psi would occur only during sustained operation during periods of low system demand.
  20. For the pilot reserve brake what is the accumulator preload (70F), min for one brake application, normal pressure and maximum?
    1000 psi @ 70F; 1300 psi one brake app; 1300 to 3050 normal; 3050 psi max
  21. What is the minimum, normal range, and maximum for the rudder power hydraulic system pressure in the high range and low range?
    • High range: 2800 minimum, 2800-3050 normal, 2800 maximum
    • Low range: 2100 min, 2100-2400 norm, 2400 max
  22. What is TRT (Takeoff Rated Thrust) and how many minutes of operation is it restricted to?
    It is the highest value of thrust which the engine will deliver at specific ground and flight conditions. Restriced to 5 minutes of operation on the ground and during takeoff
