___________________________ in/on any of the switches on the overhead.
a. "Lights Out" no white lights
The E/WD is divided into two main parts. The ___________________ and ____________________.

If failures occur, Warnings/Caution messages are displayed in place of the ______________________.
a. Status Page
1. The SD, System Display (lower screen), is used to display particular ___________________________>
d. system information
When a fault occurs, the ECAM system alerts the crew aurally and visually. The indications on the upper and lower ECAM screens are:
a. A failure message on the E/WD System synoptic on the SD
The standard response when completing an abnormal procedure is ___________________________.
a. "ECAM Complete, Screens Normal"
The Primary Flight Display, PFD, displays all the normal Primary Flight Indications. They are:
a. Altitude, Airspeed and Attitude
b. Vertical Speed
c. Heading and Track
d. All of the above
The upper part of the PFD is known as the _____________________________________.
b. Flight Mode Annunciator, FMA
When below 2500 feet AGL, a digital ______________________ is displayed.
c. radio altimeter
When the FMGS is controlling the airspeed, a magenta Target Airspeed triangle appears. This is referred to as __________________________________.
d. Managed Speed
If the target airspeed is selected manually a blue triangle appears. This is referred to as _____________________________.
a. Selected Speed
The minimum Flap retraction speed is shown by a _______________
b. Green "F"
At "S" speed, the flaps are retracted to 0. The "S" disappears, and now the "Green Dot" symbol appears. Green dot is defined as the ________________________________________.
d. best lift over drag speed
1. The red ribbon to the right of the altitude scale represents the ____________________.
a. field elevation
The small green diamond on the compass represents the aircraft _____________________.
The ILS display includes indications for:
b. Front Course
c. Glide Slope
d. All of the above
High pressure air can be supplied from three sources:
a. Engine bleed
c. External power source
d. All of the above
Air is bled from the two engine compressor stages, the ________________________ and __________________________ port.
b. intermediate pressure high pressure
The APU can also be used for BLEED air supply. This is usually done on the ground for _______
_____________________ and ___________________________.
b. air conditioning engine starting
The normal position for the bleed switches is the "lights out" position; this means the valves are
_______________________ controlled by the pneumatics system.
When selecting the APU Master Switch to off and the bleed air has been used, there is an automatic __________ minute time delay before the APU will shut down. This is for APU cool down.
The APU bleed valve has priority over the _______________________________________.
c. engine bleed valves
When the APU bleed valve is switched off:
a. The APU Bleed valve closes
b. The X-Bleed valve is automatically closed
c. The engine bleed valves are automatically opened
d. all of the above
If the APU is inoperative, the high pressure air ground unit can be connected to provide_________________________ engine start.
d. pneumatic pressure
Normal pneumatic pressure pack operation and engine start is________________________.
c. 30 psi
If there is an overheat with the bleed system, the _______________________ will illuminate and will remain illuminated until the overheat condition has disappeared.
a. fault light
The A320 is equipped with _______ air conditioning packs located in the wing root area forward of the _________________________________________ .
c. 2 main landing gear
The purpose of the pack flow control valve is to adjust the ______________________ through the pack.
The pack flow control valve, and the bypass valve, are regulated by a _________________________ to vary the flow rate and temperature output.
d. pack controller
In case of failure of both packs, __________ air is provided via a/an ____________ air valve.
b. ram ram
Various pack parameters are monitored by ECAM. They are:
a. Pack flow
b. Compressor outlet temperature
c. By-pass valve position
d. Pack outlet temperatures
e. All of the above
The three temperature zones for the A320 are:
a. cockpit, forward cabin and aft cabin
Since the different zones of the aircraft may require different amounts of cooling, or heating, hot bleed air can be added via ______________________________ to achieve the demanded temperature for a zone.
c. trim air valves
Zone duct temperature, displayed on ECAM, is the temperature entering a zone, for example the _____________.
b. forward cabin
d. a and b
The guarded RAM AIR switch controls the RAM AIR valve. Use of the RAM AIR switch is restricted to ______________________________.
c. abnormal conditions
Two cabin fans are fitted to reduce the bleed air requirement, and, therefore, save _________.
The pressurized areas are;
a. Cockpit, avionics bay, cabin, and cargo compartments
An/a _____________________ is used to regulate the amount of air allowed to escape from the pressurized areas.
c. out flow valve
__________________control of the outflow valve is provided by two Cabin Pressure Controllers. Each controller has an electric motor to move the outflow valve.
If the outflow valve is closed, or only allowing a small amount of air to escape (cabin pressure will increase), then, the cabin altitude will ____________. If the outflow valve is fully open, a lot of air will escape (cabin pressure will decrease), the cabin altitude will ___________________.
d. descend climb
Max differential pressure for the A320 is__________________ psi.
The crew can monitor all cabin pressure functions on the _________________________________.
a. ECAM CAB PRESS page
