State the purpose of the following utility systems:
Air conditioning
maintains cabin temperature within limits for aircrew
Cabin pressurization
automatically maintains air pressure in the cabin
Liquid Oxygen (LOX)
converts LOX to gaseous oxygen delivered to crew
Emergency oxygen bailout bottle
emergency source of oxygen for high altitude egress
Walkaround oxygen bottle
20 minute supply of oxygen to take care of emergencies away from seat
Side window defogging
defog side windows
Nose anti-icing
prevents ice accumulation on nose of aircraft
Windshield anti-icing
prevent icing on winsheild and 1/4 panels
Wing and tail deicing
pulsating rubber boots on leading edges horrizontal/vertical stabilizers and outer wings
Engine fire extinguishing
extinguishes fire in engines using fire bottles in nacelles
State the location and purpose of the aircraft portable fire extinguishers
5 lbs 10 oz behind pilot seat as well as between RO CICO (E2)

2 3/4 lbs of monobromotriflouromethane behind pilot and in aft cabin (C2)
Explain the proper operation of the seat adjustment handles
recline handle 8-18 degrees, fore and aft handle 10", vertical handle 4"
State the purpose and location of the underwater acoustic beacon
provides a location of aircraft in case of crash in water
State which installed components falls under the Conventional Ordnance Handlers Certification Program
engine fire bottle CAD's (cartridge activated device)
State the three major parts of a backpack parachute assembly
A/P22P-11 parachute, survival kit, emergency oxygen system
State the items contained within the seat survival kit assembly
SKK-9 liferaft, general survival packet, medical survival packet, sea dye marker, 50 nylon cord, combat casualty blanket, bailing sponge, flare, bagged water
Discuss the protective features provided by the oxygen mask
MBU-17(V) 5/P oxygen-provides oxygen for aircrew member on demand
Explain the air/water temperature requirements for mandatory wearing of anti-exposure assemblies
air-32 degrees F or below

water-50 degrees F or below
State the minimum buoyancy in pounds provided by the life preserver
65 lbs
State the purpose of the PRC-149 emergency radio
communicates with GPS for tracking
State the purpose and function of the SRU-40/P (series) Helicopter Aircrew Breathing Device (HABD)
3-5 minutes usable oxygen for underwater emersion egress
Discuss the sequence of events after manual operation of the NB-8 parachute
ripcord pulls pins, pilot parachute comes out, and air will drag canopy and suspension lines open
State the items contained within the Standard Soft Pack (SSP) equipment container
dye markers, distress signals, emergency radio beacon, battery power supply, bagged water, can opener, nylon cord, blanket, bailing sponge
Discuss the protective features provided by the Mask Breathing Unit (MBU) series oxygen mask
water tight seal for water emersion. usable oxygen in case of a fire
State the items contained within the LRU-13A liferaft and the number of survivors it can hold
bailing sponge, radio beacon, ground/air emergency code card, blanket, signal flare, sea dye marker, nylon cord (7 man raft)
Discuss the basic operation of an Air Cycle Air Conditioning system
heats, cools, ventilates, and pressurizes the aircraft
Discuss the basic operation of a Cabin Pressurization system
starts at 5k ft. from 5k-35k cabin maintains a 5k altitude pressure. above 35k-max altitude maintains 8.8 psi above atmospheric pressure
Discuss the effects of ice accumulation on the aircraft
decrease in aerodynamics. longer take off/landing runs. decrease lift and increase drag
State the special safety precautions as they apply to LOX system handling/servicing
never store or handle LOX in a poorly ventilated area or close to flammable materials. when splashed with LOX, organic materials burn violently if ignited within several minutes after exposure. never seal LOX in an unventilated container.
