What is the engine driven fuel pump used for? 1. Main metering valve sends fuel to combustion nozzles 2. high pressure fuel is sent to CVG vanes to adjust them in response to the FADEC commands
What will occur if a main metering valve (MMV) becomes stuck? FADEC will continue to supply fuel to the engine at the same value until the thrust lever is moved all the way to cutoff

What is the purpose of the FADEC switch in the cockpit? To control which FADEC is in control of the engine
What does the cas message FADEC BUS FAIL L-A and L-B indicate? A dueal failure of the Cross Channel Data Link, which is the bus that the FADECs use to communicate with each other. This could be a problem because each FADEC may try to control the same engine at the same time. Avoid abrupt throttle inputs.
Can the FADECs from engine 1 communicate with the FADECs in engine 2? No, except for engine sync
What are the sources of input data to the FADECs? MADC IAC Thrust lever angle (TLA) cockpit switches, Engine sensors High idle switch FADEC switches Fuel Pump Metering Unit Other FADEC channel through CCDL
What could cause a FADEC FAULT message in the CAS? FADEC monitoring has been compromised, FADEC detected a conflict within itself, faulty or missing ADC data
How can FADEC be reset? Use the reset switch in the cockpit
What could cause a FADEC FAIL message in the CAS? Total loss of electrical power FADEC hardware fault Total loss of N2 signal Unable to control CVG Total loss of MMV fuel flow torque motor drive MMV position tests (during start self checks)
What does the FADEC limit thrust to during reverser operation? 70% N1
Can full single engine reverse thrust be used? Yes, but not recommended on slick surfaces
How many thrust reverser latches must unlatch to cause FADEC to roll engine back to idle? 3 of the 4
After automated idle thrust due to TR unlatching, how can control of engine be regained? Bring thrust lever to idle to reset control
IF the FADEC shuts down the engine due to an overspeed would it be advisable to attempt a restart? No
What is the underspeed N2 limit that automatically causes shutdown? 54% N2
If the FADEC senses an engine flameout will it attempt a restart automatically? Yes. If the restart fails it will shut the engine down
What is the minimum corrected fan speed to attempt a takeoff? 73.56%
What is the indication that the FADEC is in the fan damage correction mode? CAS message: FAN DAMAGE L, or R
When would the FADEC go into reversionary mode? When both N1 sensors were inop or both MADC inputs are lost
WHat does the FADEC do in reversionary mode? Utilizes N2 and TLA for N1 information; utilizes T2.5 and P2.5 inputs for MADC information
How do you know that the FADEC has gone into reversionary mode? CAS message: FADEC REV N1 L, R FADEC REV ADC L, R
When does ignition begin during the start sequence? 14% N2
When does the FADEC start metering fuel to the engine during the start sequence? 33% N2 (about 10 seconds after ignition)

How must thrust power be set when transitioning from climb to cruise? Thrust levers to cruise detent within 10 minutes of leveloff
The controlling FADEC for each engine changes when? Each time the aircraft is powered up

What is indicated by CAS message FUEL TEMP L or R? Fuel is too hot or too cold
ENG TLA FAILED L or R means what? FADEC cannot tell what the TLA angle is, and thrust will remain as set until that engine is shut down
ENG MTR VLV FAIL L or R means what? FADEC cannot more metering valve. Thrust remains the same but fuel cannot be metered in the event of an exceedence, although fuel can be shut down. If at a high power setting, engine will likely be shut down
How many pneumatic start valves? 2
What is the air start motor connected to? N2
