Apparently, the FAA has seen the test gouge on some online posting... Actually, it was the exact written test with answers. Now we get to take a randomly generated test every CQ.

Way to go guys... Thanks for sharing with the feds. Don't be an a$$hat and put everything on the internet!

There's always one person that goes and ruins things for everyone.

Yes its lame but maybe it means next time I have a CA checking something weird like the aileron trim tab he'll be checking the correct wing.

Come on, the old way was certainly easier but we can all stand to work a little harder on learning systems. Its honestly probably a good thing.

I hear that other companys have a much more relaxed recurrent test, as in open book and sharing.

some folks could use the study time and learn what a "chip detector light is"

That's easy. Even I know that one. The flight attendents use the "chip detector light" in the galley to warn of a low snack situation. ;)

I thought everybody knew this. It was a total CF from the beginning. It was HANDLED, the idiot that did it had his peepee whacked, lesson learned and go forth- sin no more, etc.

The idiot that posted the thing is one thing.

The raving lunatic that called the FSDO is another thing entirely. It was NOT JK- imagine the headache (look where it got us), and it was all fine as long as the message was clear and the image taken down.

Nope. I swear, we are our own worst enemies.

So who gave the FAA the password for the "wall" as it is a private site? Who the rat?

the gouge is public. I didn't think what that dude from CHO posted on the wall was anywhere else. Had training telling us about it 2 months ago, and that feds were involved...... yet we still took the same test.... WTF!?

Uh, isn't there one on each aileron?

C'mon guys... Yeah, it sucks, but most of you guys have been flying that thing so long you know how many rivets hold the airstair door on. I bet I can still go and pass the written.

I'd fail the checkride by the engine start though...:D

Kinda sorta. There is a 'spring tab' on each airlieron.

The only trimmable spring tab is on the right aileron. Its on P.126 of the systems manual.

If your aileron trim indicator is MEL'd - the MEL tells you to visually verify that the trimmable spring tab is in the nuetral position. Helps to know which wing has the trimmable tab.

Minor details really - but the point is that theres things all of us can learn by having a more thorough written evaluation.

Jar Jar- Opec was making a joke. Did people make fun of you in high school? He's got over 4000 hours in a dash, he knows what a spring tab is.

Lots of people have over 4000 hours in a dash. Some of them seem to be lacking in the systems department.

Total time in type does not grant anyone thorough systems knowledge. I'm sure even you will agree that there are those who are content to just 'know the gouge' and get through training without learning much if anything at all.
