The cockpit is clean and uncluttered thanks to the absence of the large circuit breaker panels that we’re used to in traditional types. Almost all circuit breakers are ‘virtual’ and are accessed via the forward Multi-Functional Display (MFD). — flight.org The 787 and its contemporaries have moved away from physical CB's and use virtual CB's instead. ...

Based on this Advisory Circular, the answer is yes. g. Deactivation means to make a piece of equipment or an instrument unusable to the pilot/crew by preventing its operation Collaring the circuit breaker prevents it from being pushed in, and therefore prevents its operation.

Virtual breakers use solid-state relays: A solid-state relay (SSR) is an electronic switching device that switches on or off when a small external voltage is applied across its control terminals. The relay may be designed to switch either AC or DC to the load. It serves the same function as an electromechanical relay, but has no moving parts. ...

It was NTSB accident ID NYC07MA162. A Cessna 310R went down in Florida in 2007, the NTSB information is here and the flight was analyzed by AOPA. The NTSB report has lots of details, the aircraft was owned and operated by NASCAR, who unsuccessfully sued Cessna after the accident.

From the details it sounds like the accident was N501N, a Cessna 310R that crashed on 10 July 2007 (NTSB Summary Report (PDF)). This airplane had been previously written up for an anomaly with the weather radar and subsequently improperly released back into service. The accident crew reported smoke in the cockpit and post-crash analysis revealed ...

This circuit breaker is responsible for your Audio Control Panel. It's called Audio/Mkr. because the Audio Control Panel in most aircraft includes the Marker receiver and displays (maybe you noticed the three colored lamps on the left side reading O, I and M, colored white, blue and orange). If the circuit breaker is out you loose your audio on the one hand ...

It is for (two) accessories and the starter, they are on the same 15A circuit breaker. The page you want to look at in the POH is Section 7.17 (this is figure 7-11): I know the image isn't all that clear, but the 15A breaker is on the right side of the alternator buss. It includes the cigar lighter, cabin light and starter solenoid. Why would the ...

TLDR: you follow the appropriate checklist for your aircraft. For example: How do you disable plane AI There is no Artifical Intelligence (AI) in passenger transport aircraft. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is used to describe machines that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" ...

A virtual circuit-breaker is a relay (solid-state or otherwise) where the current going through it is monitored by a computer of some sort. When the computer sees too much current going through it, the computer trips the relay open. (Think of it as 'active CB' versus 'passive CB'.) The engineer/pilot can access the computer to find out which CBs have been ...

It's the circuit breaker, most likely, for power from the avionics master bus to the audio panel as well as the marker beacon receiver.
