How to get into a cockpit answers

Here are the answers to last Friday’s video, enjoy!

Suggested ICAO level for video: 4+

  1. The flight attendant makes a call to the cockpit to request entry, then presses the hash button on the keypad. Next, the captain pushes the switch in the cockpit into the unlock position and the door is unlocked.
  2. In this case, the captain can lock the door from the inside and prevent an unauthorised entry by pushing the switch into the lock position.
  3. In this case the flight attendant should press the emergency code into the keypad and then press the hash button. This triggers the timer for thirty seconds, indicating imminent unlocking. The green light also flashes on the keypad during this 30-second period. Inside the cockpit the buzzer sounds and the open light flashes, both indicating imminent unlocking. When the 30 seconds comes to an end, and if there is no action from the cockpit crew, the door goes into unlocking sequence for five seconds, the buzzing stops and the flight attendant has five seconds to enter the cockpit.
