I saw a program on the Discovery channel where they featured 3 hour long documentrys on a Air Canada flight from Toronto to Frankfurt.As the plane is cleared fro take off the 1st officer says "3000,TARA,landings lights on,before takeoff checklist complete,EPR"
I would like to know what does 3000 TARA mean.

TA/RA refers to TCAS system and transponder and means Traffic Advisory and Resolution Advisory. It's a transponder mode which activates the TCAS for the flight. 3000 can mean the transponder code, but I think it also might be the initial climb altitude (3000 feet) where the aircraft has been cleared by the ATC.
