13- In the flyweight in the csu are moving outwards then the propeller is:

c- Underspeeding and the blade angle must to be reduce

14- The feathering pump is automatically stopped when :

a- the pitch change piston reaches the end of the coarse range and activates a cut off switch
b- the pilot select it off with a button on the propeller feathering control panel
c- oil pressure reaches a pre-determined level and isolated the electrical power to the oil
15- during normal flight condition, low torquemeter oil pressure will initiate :
a- turbo prop engine re-light starting sequence
b- auto feathering of the blades
c- restart of the engine from a feathering position

16- the hub switch :

a- prevent the blades turning to a course angle during engine shutdown
b- allow the blade to be in the ground fine position for engine starting
c- stop the blade fining off the flight fine pitch stop fails

17- the direction of the differential motor in a tacho- generator synchronizing system is :
a- a result of the engine that generates the highest voltage
b- determined by the frequency of the signal from the computer
c- selected by rotation of the phasing control unit

18- A synchronization system may be used with governors with :

a- electrical head only
b- mechanical head only
c- either mechanical or electrical heads

19- on a four engined aircraft with synchronization the left had engine is :
a- the master , only if selected by the pilot
b- always the master engine

20- on four bladed propeller the pulse generator in a synchrophasing system are fitted on the :
a- root of the blades with identical numbers
b- balde root coinciding with the engine position number
c- blade root of the master engine only

21- full de-ice mode :

a- allow electrical de-icing to be selected for long periods during heavy ice to reduce pilot
b- provide the max rate of fluid flow from the pump
c- has a spring loaded switch and de ices all propellers at once
22- some rubber de-icing system boots contain two heating elements :
a- to provide an alternative if the slip ring contact fails during flight
b- to allow a greater concentration of heat on the blades
c- to allow two time cycles to be used for light or heavy icing

23- fluid in a de-icing system is fed to individual blades from tank:

a- directly to a drilling in each blade root using siphoning to induce flow

c- via a pump to slinger ring to distribute it to feed shoes

24- during a functional test of a fluid de-icing system:
