604 terms · Flight Engineer Written Turbojet (FEJ) Only Current as of Spring 2011. Questions, answers, and detailed explanations. For test prep you can skip the question card when it uses the word 'explained'. Also many words are written especially numbers. This is so that the speech engine on quizlet pronounces the cards correctly. An example might be 29.92 would be written as two niner decimal niner two. Instead of / I use 'forward slash'. I find the speech engine to be valuable in pro…

Minimum amount of fuel should remain after jettisoning with the main fuel control? 45 minutes at

º 23.1001 - For turbine engine powered airplanes, the jettisoning system must be designed so that it is not possible to jettison fuel in the tanks used for takeoff and landing below the level allowing climb from sea level to 10,000 feet and thereafter allowing 45 minutes cruise at a speed for maximum range.

EPR indication increase falsely if the Pt probe at the engine nose dome opening ices up?

If anti-ice is ON, but insufficient power has been used to provide adequate heat to the Pt2 probes for proper deicing, initial thrust settings may appear to decrease once the takeoff roll has begun, as increasing bleed air temperatures melt snow, or ice blockage of the Pt2 sensor inlet. As the probes become unblocked, artificially high EPR reading may decrease to actual values.
