It’s a bit fiddling around with the throttle to get it at that position unless you go for FULL TO thrust. MCDU 2 =Enter Data (Start Fuel Loading). After take off there is a transition on who’s is controlling the airplane (what laws are working). The mentioned checklist is a Read-and-Do. Once this process has been completed the aircraft can be loaded and will appear with engines off. Overall satisfied! Starting with engines on at the end of a selected runway is straight forward but even moving the thrust levers to take off I invoked several warning sounds and alarms. Take off went well, again following the alternative checklist, and I was able to activate autopilot. So even for me with my technical aviation background and real C152 flying experience, it is and stays difficult to judge if this Airbus model flies as real as it gets. Perhaps you should become a reviewer … a new challenge! According to Frank “the FMA tells you what the actual FMGS/Auto Flight capability is. The first member of the A320 family—the A320—was launched in March 1984, first flew on 22 February 1987, and was first delivered in March 1988 to launch customer Air France. As it looks now, that will be a bit higher, but is it a problem. Most screens and displays can be “popped out” to make them easier to use. The METAR says that the wind is 000/3, so the wind comes from the North, but is only 3 knots. I see the French coastline, and yes, it’s a flight with CAVOK conditions. The switches and controls are clear and sharp and remain so whatever the level of zoom. A320 Enhanced family (or A320E family) is the working title for a series of improvements to the A320 family. Not a problem, resizing is possible by moving your mouse to one of the corners, hold the left-hand mouse button, drag it and resize, but then the EFB could take up a lot of space on your screen. Whilst the controls respond well with their own sounds a click anywhere within the flight deck produces the noise applied for switches. It’s nice that I found it, but this should be in a manual. But having access and understanding of the AMM (Aircraft Maintenance Manual) and ASM (Aircraft Schematic Manual) are essential for developers in my humble opinion. I mentioned before that the provided Flight Factor URL has links to CCM Airlines (Compagnie Aérienne Corse Méditerranée Airlnies) manuals. The AMM and ASM are the manuals, oh, sorry the bibles for maintaining the aircraft, but they are also used by the engineering department. Something needs to be highlighted although it’s an optional field; Cost Index. What to Conclude? Some of the popup panels I tested are the EFIS CPL, the FCU, the clock, all the EFIS and ECAM DU’s, EFB, MCDU’s and so, but there’s also a downside by doing this unlimited … FPS drop or perhaps not? I completed a circuit, though I had to adapt to the distance and altitude covered in a short time compared to GA aircraft. AIRBUS A320/A321 - NORMAL CHECKLIST PRE FLIGHT FLOWS Download charts & NOTAMS Check weather & forecasts Load PAX, CARGO & FUEL >> START SKYTRACK << PRE START CHECKLIST The manual does include references to links for tutorials and documentation. } While searching the Web, I found some useful information at AVSIM and later I found out that Little Navmap, a awesome freeware program, was able to handle and deal with this new flight plan format. Climb and Cruise The pages that include the numbers AFL MSN 2106-2163 2233 are the pages for the A320 model. The tiny details on the NLG are also present for the MLG. Take-Off calculation can be used with other flight simulator A320 products as well. In the ICAO field I enter LFBO and click on the METAR button. 2. I select 4000, I click the ALT knob for DES mode, but the FMS thinks that with the intended V/S it will take too long and therefore, both on the PFD under the FMA and in the MCDU scratchpad, MORE DRAG is indicated. Please note, accounts less than 4 days old cannot post or comment. Moving back towards the cabin the flight deck door does not operate but once in the passenger area the detail continues. Much appreciated. The challenge I found was taking the experience further as a beginner, without a bespoke manual for the aircraft. At the rear of the elevators and rudder, you’ll find some static dischargers. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! Many questions and thoughts if this is the A320 we’re all waiting for. That said, you need to check during your takeoff the VSpeeds on the PFD. Now that we know this, where can you find the corte.in file? When I say with great detail I really mean that. I see that the runway is automatically entered, logically because I entered a runway on the previous steps. – FLAP position: 1+F, 2 or 3, The final tab in the EFB is the map tab. Oh no, I won’t promote it since the review deals with the FF A320 Ultimate, but I would highlight that other ground handling equipment with much more options and variations is available for the FF A320 Ultimate. based on altitude, speed and weight. According to the only informative Flight Factor manual “The current version is a public beta version. Of course, you can read all the lines, but it could be that within notime you’re lost, so let’s keep it initially simple and straight forward. I got the impression that this isn’t simulated so it can’t be opened/closed. POWER ON. It uses, if applicable, the stabilizer TRIM tank to change or improve the C.G. It turns out that this results in a 80.2 MTOW with VSpeeds of 143/153/155 (V1/VR/V2). You can make this as complicated as possible, or you first decide to start with that the runway has no slope and there’s no wind. Basic Flight Experience The first design type to be tested was developed by Airbus and was based on work done by the AWIATOR programme. Left-hand because the external bleed air connector is located left of the BLEED X-FEED valve. the MASTER WARNING light and an aural warning are visible/heard as well as on ECAM you see a red AP OFF message. I mentioned it before … please don’t use the option “aircraft with running engines”. You would say … Why? After a while you need to click the BARO KNOB to change to STD. As usual, I start at the NLG (Nose Landing Gear), via the engines along the wing leading edge to the wingtip, then back via the trailing edge, stopping at the MLG (Main Landing Gear). By trial and error I figured out that with the arrow UP you push the knob which equals MANAGED mode. In 2006, Airbus tested three styles of winglet intended to counteract the wing’s induced drag and wingtip vortices more effectively than the previous wingtip fence. Now you need to find out the MTOW and belonging Vspeeds. Scroll a bit down and you’ll find an online Pressure Altitude Calculator. Final assembly of the family takes place in Toulouse (France), and Hamburg (Germany). Little Navmap can export if you with everything of the mandatory field and the optional fields except for the CI. Hello everyone,We published a new step-by-step beginner tutorial for the Airbus A320, explaining the most basic things for a successful flight from A to B.It contains instructions on how to manage the aircraft throughout the flight and how to fly a fully… Inputs via the stick are send to the AutoFlight system and they control the flight controls. The slightly blurry look of some of the decals on the fuselage and wing as well as the tail could be in my humble opinion better. A couple of switches on the overhead panel aren’t simulated yet. What I can say is that the only real compatitor at this moment is the ToLiss A319 from Torsten Liesk or, but it hasn’t been updated for a while, the JARDesign A320neo. This is a long checklist built for the up-most realism. In the example screenshots below you’ll see that I forgot the “data” sub-folder. The aircraft folder contains the A320 folder itself and this, in turn, contains the documentation folder. While not going too deep into Octopus, Octopus allows dispatchers to enter all the necessary data needed for the TO performance. All is OK with me, but I felt there was a need to highlight these VSpeeds in general and the FLEX TO temp value. A good training to learn to fly the FF A320 and you’ll experience yourself how easy it is. I had never had to do this before and as there was no manual it took me some time to sort it out. Engines sound very good and the volume reacts well to throttle inputs and the tone and sound changes with wind up and wind down of the jets. Ok, in the FMA you see only CAT I, no CAT III or nu DUAL, but on the other hand, you got LAND, FLARE and ROLL OUT. have I seen something that’s not OK or something that feels odd. But we are lucky reviewers since we had the possibility to contact whenever needed, Marcelo Alencar and Frank Docter, active licensed Airbus pilots. Regarding the sliding windows .. not just opening by clicking the handle and click the handle or window frame to close it …. Near ADIMO I select the LS and APPR buttons on the FCU and the co-pilot switches his/her ND from PLAN to ARC while I, on the left-hand side, switch the ND to the ILS ROSE mode. ... FF Airbus A320 Ultimate is more expensive for a reason with far more features, but system wise they are equal. This page also controls server settings for remote control of the browser function. The FF A320 Ultimate does have, not always a part with other developers, a lot of different ground equipment included a fuel truck, GPU (Ground Power Unit), stairs, and so on. Views from the windows are clear and details such as crew seating, galley and storage areas and overhead lockers are very well modelled. Having not flown an actual A320 I cannot comment as to how close these systems are to the aircraft but certainly in starting up from cold and dark they react and create an immersive experience. So, the only way to judge is reviewing the aircraft myself and I must say, I’m positively enthousiastic. It could be due to the airport scenery or it’s not implemented to simulate such a sound. The fact that the FF A320 Ultimate package doesn’t come with a comprehensive tutorial is not good in my humble opinion. – Chosen to go for the “more conservative method”, Todays question is … do you need to trim A320 Family aircraft or generally speaking, all modern FBW Airbus aircraft? Checked the VSpeeds and then in particular the V1 speed with Flight Factor Support, but irrespective of how things are calculated or not calculated, the simmer wants to have speeds entered on the TAKEOFF page. To answer this, I could find it out myself, but it’s better to ask a real pilot, Marcelo Alencar. Options for FLAPS ; 1+F, 2 or 3 even the visual THS Trimmable!
