STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES - GENERAL INFORMATION

FOREWORD
Applicable to: ALL

The procedures contained in this Chapter are recommended by Airbus, and are consistent with the other Chapters of this manual. The Authorities do not certificate Standard Operating Procedures. The manufacturer presents them herein as the best way to proceed, from a technical and operational standpoint. They are continually updated and the revisions take into account Operator input, as well as manufacturer experience. In addition, Operators may amend them, as needed. However, the manufacturer recommends that Operators using the FCOM as onboard operational manual submit suggested changes to expedite publication, and maintain consistency of the manual. The Operator should note that they may rewrite this Chapter, at their own responsibility; this could, however, make it difficult to update the manual and keep it consistent with the other Chapters. The following sections contain expanded information on normal procedures. Standard Operating Procedures consist of inspections, preparations, and normal procedures. All items of a given procedure are listed in a sequence that follows a standardized scan of the cockpit panels, unless that sequence goes against the action priority logic, to ensure that all actions are performed in the most efficient way. Standard Operating Procedures are divided into flight phases, and are performed by memory. These procedures assume that all systems are operating normally, and that all automatic functions are used normally. Some normal procedures, that are non-routine will be found in the SUPPLEMENTARY TECHNIQUES (Refer to PRO-SUP-10 General), and in the SPECIAL OPERATIONS (Refer to PRO-SPO-20 General).

TECHNICAL CONDITION OF THE AIRCRAFT


Applicable to: ALL

The crew will verify the technical state of the aircraft (deferred defect list), with regard to airworthiness, acceptability of malfunctions (MEL), and influence on the flight plan. WEATHER BRIEFING
Applicable to: ALL

The crew will get a weather briefing The briefing should include: Actual and expected weather conditions, including runway conditions for takeoff and climb-out Significant weather enroute, including winds and temperatures Terminal forecasts for destination and alternate airports Actual weather for destination and alternates, for short range flights and recent past weather, if available Survey of the meteorological conditions at airports along the planned route. Weather can affect the choice of routing (for example, influence which route is quickest) and the choice of flight level. The flight crew must also consider the possibility of runways being contaminated at the departure and destination airfields. The flight crew must also verify ISA deviations and enroute icing conditions, and must consider the possibility of holding due to weather at the destination. NOTAMS
Applicable to: B-6156, B-6157, B-6169, B-6177, B-6178, B-6179, B-6180, B-6192, B-6198, B-6199, B-6210, B-6211, B-6212, B-6215, B-6221, B-6222, B-6400, B-6405

The flight crew must examine NOTAMs for changes to routings, unserviceable navaids, availability of runways and approach aids etc, all of which may affect the final fuel requirement In order to prevent the risks of projection of debris towards the trimmable horizontal stabilizer and the elevators, it is not recommended to takeoff from runways in bad condition (loose surface, under repair, covered with debris...).

The flight crew must examine NOTAMs for changes to routings, unserviceable navaids, availability of runways and approach aids etc, all of which may affect the final fuel requirement In order to prevent the risks of projection of debris towards the trimmable horizontal stabilizer and the elevators, it is not recommended to takeoff from runways in bad condition (loose surface, under repair, covered with debris...) GPS Primary availability: For RNP AR operations, the GPS Primary availability prediction should be checked to ensure the RNP will be available for the estimated time of operation. FLIGHT PLAN AND OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS
Applicable to: ALL

The crew will check the company flight plan for routing, altitudes, and flight time The Captain will check the ATC flight plan and ensure that: It is filled in and filed, in accordance with the prescribed procedures It agrees with the fuel flight plan routing. The crew will check the estimated load figures, and will calculate the maximum allowable takeoff and landing weights. OPTIMUM FLIGHT LEVEL
Applicable to: ALL

The flight crew should choose a flight level that is as close to the optimum as possible. To obtain the optimum flight level, use the chart in the QRH or in the FCOM (Refer to PER-FPL-FLP-ALT-10 DEFINITIONS). As a general rule, an altitude that is 4 000 ft below the optimum produces a significant penalty (approximately 5 % of fuel). Flight 8 000 ft below the optimum altitude produces a penalty of more than 10 % against trip fuel. (The usual contingency allowance is 5 %). FUEL REQUIREMENTS
Applicable to: ALL

COMPUTERIZED FLIGHT PLAN CHECK In most cases the flight crew uses a computer-derived flight plan to obtain the correct fuel requirements. Although these computerized requirements are normally accurate, the flight crew must check them for gross errors.

STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES - FLIGHT PREPARATION

The easiest way to do this is to use the Quick Determination of F-PLN tables (Refer to PER-FPL-FLP-QFP-40 FLIGHT PLANNING M.78). Although the aircraft will fly at ECON MACH that is based on the cost index, the M 0.78 table is accurate enough to permit the crew to check for gross error. Ensure that both the captain and the first officer have verified that the fuel calculations and required fuel on board are correct and that the figure complies with the applicable regulations. FUEL TRANSPORTATION The flight crew must check the policy covering the tankering of fuel on sectors where there is a favourable fuel price differential or operational requirement. Remember that carrying unnecessary extra fuel increases the fuel consumption for that sector and therefore reduces the economy of the operation (lower flex temperature, more tire and brake wear, more time in climb phase, lower optimum flight level etc).

However some databases will only include departure and arrival airport IDENTs and en-route waypoints. The flight crew must check, modify, or insert (as applicable) the F-PLN in the following order, according to the data given by ATIS, ATC, or MET: Lateral revision at departure airport. Select RWY, then SID, then TRANS using scroll keys. Lateral revision at WPT for ROUTE modification if needed. (Refer to DSC-22_20-30-10-05 Lateral Revisions). Vertical revision. Check or enter climb speed limit, constraints according to ATC clearance.

However, consideration may be given to the following: a. Copy the active F-PLN, but modify it at a suitable WPT for an immediate return to the departure airfield in the event of, for example, engine failure b. If weather is below landings minima at the departure airfield, the secondary flight plan should be that required for a diversion immediately after takeoff c. If there is a chance of a change in runway or SID during taxi, prepare for it by copying the active flight plan and making the necessary modifications.

Applicable to: B-6178, B-6179, B-6180, B-6181, B-6182

Use the automatic engine start procedure in most circumstances. However, if the start aborts due to insufficient starter inlet air pressure (e.g. on high airfields, or in case of low pressure from an external pneumatic power group), it is recommended to use the manual start procedure, instead the automatic procedure. If, during the engine start, the ground crew reports a fuel leak from the engine drain mast, run the engine at idle for 5 min. If the leak disappears during these 5 min, the aircraft can be dispatched without maintenance action. If the leak is still present after 5 min, maintenance action may be required before the flight.

During ground operation, when in icing conditions and the OAT is plus 3 C or less, or if significant engine vibration occurs, the following procedure should be applied for ice shedding : CAUTION If, during thrust increase, the aircraft starts to move, immediately retard the thrust levers to IDLE.

If ground surface conditions and the environment permit, the flight crew should accelerate the engines to minimum 50 % of N1 at intervals not greater than 15 min. There is no requirement to maintain the high trust settings. In addition, this engine acceleration should also be performed just before take-off, with particular attention to engine parameters to ensure normal engine operation. Note: When performing the static runup, the 61-74 % N1 range should be avoided. If ENG ANTI ICE is selected ON and the valve(s) do not open (FAULT light(s) remain on), increase the N2 of the associated engine by about 5 %. When the valves are open, retard the thrust lever(s) to idle. If ENG ANTI ICE is switched on, the IGNITION memo appears on the ECAM because continuous ignition is automatically selected.

In addition, this engine acceleration should also be performed just before take-off, with particular attention to engine parameters to ensure normal engine operation. If ground surface or environment do not permit to accelerate the engine to 70 % N1, then power setting and dwell time should be as high as practical.

Avoid positioning them over unconsolidated, or unprepared ground (beyond the edge of the taxiways, for example). Avoid high thrust settings at low ground speeds, which increase the risk of ingestion (FOD), and the risk of projection of debris towards the trimmable horizontal stabilizer and towards the elevators.

If the weather display is ambiguous or unexpected, in order to better analyze the weather situation, use manual tilt according to standard technique. 3. In particular below FL 200, for situations with low-level weather, weather with low reflectivity or in front of suspected active cells, the flight crew should switch to Manual mode and adjust the tilt setting downward until the weather is detected or the ground clutter appears on the upper part of the display. 4. In addition, the flight crew may increase the manual gain control to display lower reflectivity targets. The manual gain control can be increased in both AUTO and Manual modes to display lower levels of weather. In both cases, ground clutter may also be displayed as a result of low settings and/or increased gain.

Once the thrust levers are set to FLX or TOGA detent, the captain keeps his hand on the thrust levers until the aircraft reaches V1. In case of tailwind or if crosswind is greater than 20 kt: THRUST LEVERS................................................................................................. FLX or TOGA PF applies full forward stick. PF sets 50 % N1 (1.05 EPR) on both engines then increases thrust progressively to reach takeoff thrust at 40 kt ground speed, while maintaining stick full forward up to 80 kt. Release stick gradually to reach neutral at 100 kt. Once the Thrust Levers are set to FLX or TOGA detent, the captain keeps his hand on the Thrust Levers until the aircraft reaches V1. Note: 1. ENG SD page replaces WHEEL SD page on the ECAM lower display 2. The FADEC includes a keep-out zone, which is designed to avoid steady state operation inside a N1 range between 60 % and 74 % due to fan flutter phenomenon. This can result in discontinuous EPR increase during thrust setting (Refer to DSC-70-20 Functions).

ANNOUNCE PACK 1 and 2 (if applicable)........................................................................................................ ON Select PACK 1 on after CLB thrust reduction. Select PACK 2 on after flap retraction. Note: 1. Selecting pack on before reducing takeoff thrust would result in an EGT increase. 2. PACK 2 may be selected earlier, but not sooner than 10 s after PACK 1 is selected on, for passenger comfort. 3. If packs are not switched on after the takeoff phase, an ECAM caution will be triggered.

Applicable to: ALL

AT ACCELERATION ALTITUDE FMA................................................................................................................................ ANNOUNCE Check the target speed change from V2 + 10 to the first CLB speed (either preselected or managed). Note: 1. When THR RED and ACC ALT are equal, the FMA will change from MAN FLX/SRS/NAV to THR CLB/CLB/NAV. 2. If FCU-selected altitude is equal to or close to the acceleration altitude, then the FMA will switch from SRS to ALT*.

If the weather display is ambiguous or unexpected, in order to better analyze the weather situation, use manual tilt according to standard technique. 3. In particular below FL 200, for situations with low-level weather, weather with low reflectivity or in front of suspected active cells, the flight crew should switch to Manual mode and adjust the tilt setting downward until the weather is detected or the ground clutter appears on the upper part of the display. 4. In addition, the flight crew may increase the manual gain control to display lower reflectivity targets. The manual gain control can be increased in both AUTO and Manual modes to display lower levels of weather. In both cases, ground clutter may also be displayed as a result of low settings and/or increased gain.

DESCENT INITIATION
Applicable to: ALL

DESCENT................................................................................................................................ INITIATE The normal method of initiating the descent is to select DES mode at the FMGS calculated top of descent (T/D). If ATC requires an early descent: Use DES mode which will guide the aircraft down at a lower vertical speed in order to converge on the required descent path. (The pilot may use a V/S of -1 000 ft/min). If ATC delays the descent: Beyond T/D, a DECELERATE message comes up on the PFD and MCDU. This suggests to the crew that it starts reducing speed towards green dot speed (with ATC permission). When cleared to descend, select DES mode with managed speed active. DESCENT MONITORING

STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES - DESCENT

When flying in NAV mode, use DES mode. The aircraft descends along the descent flight path: the PFD and PROG page display VDEV, and so it can be monitored. All constraints of the flight plan are taken into account for the guidance. When the aircraft is flying in HDG or TRK mode, and thus out of the lateral F-PLN, DES mode is not available. The NDs show a level-off symbol along the flight path. Its position is based on the current active modes .AP/FD and A/THR The flight crew can use this symbol to monitor the descent. MCDU predictions assume a return to the lateral F-PLN and descent flight path. Note that whenever the lateral mode is changed from NAV to HDG/TRK the vertical mode reverts to V/S at the value pertaining at the time of the mode change. From time to time during stabilized descent, the flight crew may select FPA to check that the remaining distance to destination is approximately the altitude change required divided by the FPA in degrees. FPA () = FL/DIST (NM)

DESCENT ADJUSTMENT
Applicable to: ALL

To increase the rate of descent: Increase descent speed (by use of selected speed) if comfort and ATC permit. It is economically better (Time/Fuel) than the following procedures. Maintain high speed as long as possible. (SPD LIM may be suspended, subject to ATC clearance). If the aircraft is high and at high speed, it is more efficient to keep the high speed to ALT* knob and decelerate, rather than to mix descent and deceleration. If the aircraft goes below the desired profile, use SPEED and the V/S knob mode to adjust the rate of descent. Note: EXPEDITE DESCENT. If a high rate of descent is required, push the EXPED pushbutton on the FCU. The target speed for the descent now becomes M 0.8 or 340 kt, whichever is lower. The FMA will display THRIDLE/EXP DES/NAV. To return to DES mode, push the FCU ALT knob. To return to SPEED/V/S modes, pull the FCU V/S knob. In all cases, monitor the FMA to ensure that the mode engages properly.

SPEED BRAKE lever.............................................................................................................AS RQRD If engine anti-ice is selected in descent, the flight idle is increased. So, to maintain the rate of descent that the airplane had before engine anti-ice selection it may be necessary to use up to half speedbrakes to maintain the required rate of descent, in OPEN DES vertical mode. If the rate of descent has to be increased, full speedbrakes may be used. In DES mode: If the aircraft is on, or below, the flight path and the ATC requires a higher rate of descent, do not use speedbrakes because the rate of descent is dictated by the planned flight path. Thus, the A/THR may increase thrust to compensate for the increase in drag. In this case, use OPEN DES with speedbrakes. Note: 1. If speedbrakes are used above 315 kt/M .75, with the AP engaged, their rate of retraction is low (total time for retraction from full extension is approximately 25 s). The ECAM memo page displays SPD BRAKES in amber until retraction is complete. 2. In order to avoid overshooting the altitude, due to speedbrake retraction in ALT* mode, retract the speedbrakes at least 2 000 ft before the selected altitude.

Note:

1. If the weather is good, or no significant, in order to check that the radar is operating correctly: down tilt until displaying ground echoes. 2. If the weather display is ambiguous or unexpected, in order to better analyze the weather situation, use manual tilt according to standard technique. 3. In particular below FL 200, for situations with low-level weather, weather with low reflectivity or in front of suspected active cells, the flight crew should switch to Manual mode and adjust the tilt setting downward until the weather is detected or the ground clutter appears on the upper part of the display. 4. In addition, the flight crew may increase the manual gain control to display lower reflectivity targets. The manual gain control can be increased in both AUTO and Manual modes to display lower levels of weather. In both cases, ground clutter may also be displayed as a result of low settings and/or increased gain.

The objective is to be stabilized on the final descent path at VAPP in the landing configuration, at 1 000 ft above airfield elevation (in instrument conditions, or at 500 ft above airfield elevation in visual conditions, after continuous deceleration on the glide slope). To be stabilized, all of the following conditions must be achieved prior to, or upon reaching this stabilization height: The aircraft is on the correct lateral and vertical flight path The aircraft is in the desired landing configuration The thrust is stabilized, usually above idle, to maintain the target approach speed along the desired glide path No excessive flight parameter deviation. If the aircraft is not stabilized on the approach path in landing configuration, at 1 000 ft above airfield elevation in instrument conditions, or at 500 ft above airfield elevation in visual conditions, or as restricted by Operator policy/regulations, the flight crew must initiate a go-around, unless they think that only small corrections are necessary to rectify minor deviations from stabilized conditions due, amongst others, to external perturbations.

STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES - NON PRECISION APPROACH

Approach procedures including a PI-CF leg (PROC-T indicated on the MCDU F-PLN) are not eligible for the use of NAV and FINAL APP modes. Lateral managed guidance (NAV) can be used, provided the approach is stored in the navigation database and the final approach is laterally and vertically monitored, using the adequate raw data (reference NAVAID, altimeter). Lateral and vertical managed guidance (FINAL APP) in IMC conditions can be used, provided the following conditions are met: The approach stored in the navigation database has been produced by approved suppliers compliant with ED76/DO200A requirements, or has been validated and approved by the operator. The effect of low OAT on obstacle clearance needs to be evaluated. A minimum OAT, below which selected vertical guidance should be used, may have to be defined. The final approach (FAF to runway or MAP), as extracted from the navigation database and inserted in the primary F-PLN including altitude constraints, is not revised by the crew. Before starting the approach, the crew must check the lateral and the vertical FM F-PLN against the published approach chart, using the MCDU and ND. The approach trajectory is laterally and vertically intercepted, before the FAF, or equivalent waypoint in the FM F-PLN, so that the aircraft is correctly established on the final approach course before starting the descent. Conventional radio NAVAIDs must be available and monitored during the approach, and must be considered with altitude as the primary means of navigation. Note: For additional information on recommended flight crew procedures, and on navigation database vertical flight path validation, Refer to FCB-FCB23 Use of Managed Guidance in Approach and NAV Database Validation and the FMGS Pilot's Guide (Refer to PRO-NOR-SRP-01-70 Initial Approach).

If the FM/GPS POS DISAGREE ECAM caution is triggered during the approach, use selected guidance to continue the approach with radio NAVAID raw data. If GPS PRIMARY is lost, NAV and FINAL APP mode can be used to continue the approach, provided the radio NAVAID raw date indicates the correct navigation.

2. Lateral and vertical guidance, managed by the FM : FINAL APP mode. This strategy applies, when LNAV/VNAV (Lateral and Vertical Navigation) RNAV approach is intended. For straight in approaches, the recommended flying reference is FPV, which should be selected during the initial approach. Before starting a RNAV (GPS) approach, two navigation systems must be operative : 2 FMS and 2 GPS. Before using a RNAV approach, the operator must ensure that approved suppliers compliant with ED76/D0200A requirements have produced the navigation database. Otherwise, the operator must validate and approve the approach. For RNP AR approaches, as per ACD, the operator must validate and approve the approaches even if the navigation database provider is ED76/D0200A compliant. To perform a RNAV approach in NAV-FPA (NAV-V/S) mode, the following recommendations apply: Before starting the approach, the flight crew must check the lateral FMS F-PLN against the published approach chart using MCDU and ND. The flight crew must laterally and vertically monitor the approach, using the distance to the runway or to the MAP versus altitude. To perform a RNAV approach in FINAL APP mode, the following recommendations apply: If no minimum OAT is published on the approach chart, the operator must evaluate the effect of low OAT on obstacle clearance. The flight crew must not revise the final approach (FAF to runway or MAP), which was extracted from the navigation database. Before starting the approach, the flight crew must check the lateral and the vertical FMS F-PLN against the published approach chart using MCDU and ND. The aircraft must laterally and vertically intercept the approach trajectory before the FAF, so that the aircraft is correctly established on the final approach course before starting the descent. The flight crew must monitor laterally and vertically the approach, using the VDEV and the distance to the runway or to the MAP versus altitude. Note: For additional information on recommended flight crew procedures, and on navigation database flight path validation, Refer to "Use of managed guidance in approach and Nav database validation" and the Refer to FMGS Pilot's guide.

For RNAV approach WITH GPS PRIMARY Unless an instrument approach procedure, not requiring GPS PRIMARY, is available at destination or destination alternate (and at required takeoff alternate, and en route alternate), the GPS PRIMARY availability must be verified before flight. RAIM is available worldwide, if 24 or more GPS satellites are operative. If the number of GPS satellites is 23 or less, check RAIM availability, using the approved version of the Honeywell ground-based prediction software. If the GPS PRIMARY availability cannot be verified before flight, RAIM availability can be checked in flight, using the PREDICTIVE GPS MCDU page Note: For RNP AR, before flight, the flight crew must check that the GPS Primary is predicted available, for the ETA. This prediction should take into account the terrain environment.

Before starting the approach, check that GPS PRIMARY is available on both MCDUs. If the GPS PRIMARY LOST indication appears on the ND during the approach, discontinue the approach, unless: GPS is not required and navigation accuracy is confirmed against the radio NAVAID raw data, or For RNAV approach not requiring GPS, HIGH accuracy appears on the MCDU with the appropriate RNP value.

GUIDANCE FOR LOC NON PRECISION APPROACHES The Standard Operating Procedure of this section can be used for flying LOC or LOC B/C approaches, provided the following approach guidance items are observed. The FM NAV mode can be used down to LOC or LOC B/C interception. For LOC intermediate and final approach, use the LOC or AP/FD mode for lateral navigation, associated with the FPA (or V/S) for vertical navigation. For LOC B/C intermediate and final approach, do not use LOC mode as it would give reverse deviation. Intercept the LOC B/C manually using TRK/FPA modes. Monitor the interception on the ND in ROSE LS mode. Vertical navigation must be monitored using raw data (altimeter, distance to the runway given by radio-NAVAID).
Applicable to: ALL

APPROACH SPEED TECHNIQUE In all cases, the crew should use managed speed. The standard speed technique is to make a stabilized approach using AP/FD and A/THR: The aircraft intercepts the final descent path in landing configuration, and at VAPP. For this purpose, the flight crew should insert VAPP as a speed constraint at the FAF. If the operator adopts a decelerated approach technique and the crew uses managed guidance, the aircraft should intercept the final descent path at S speed in CONF 1. The objective is to be stabilized on the final descent path at VAPP in the landing configuration, at 1 000 ft above airfield elevation (in instrument conditions, or at 500 ft above airfield elevation in visual conditions, after continuous deceleration on the final descent path). To be stabilized, all of the following conditions must be achieved prior to, or upon reaching this stabilization height: The aircraft is on the correct lateral and vertical flight path The aircraft is in the desired landing configuration The thrust is stabilized, usually above idle, to maintain the target approach speed along the desired final approach path No excessive flight parameter deviation. If the aircraft is not stabilized on the approach path in landing configuration, at 1 000 ft above airfield elevation in instrument conditions, or at 500 ft above airfield elevation in visual conditions, or as restricted by Operator policy/regulations, the flight crew must initiate a go-around, unless

VISUAL APPROACH
Applicable to: ALL

INTRODUCTION Perform the approach on a nominal 3 glideslope using visual references. Approach to be stabilized by 500 ft AGL on the correct approach path, in the landing configuration, at VAPP. Method: The autopilot is not used Both FDs are off FPV use is recommended A/THR use is recommended with managed speed. Bear in mind the possible risk of optical illusions due to hindered night vision. INITIAL/INTERMEDIATE APPROACH The flight plan selected on the MCDU should include the selection of the landing runway. The downwind leg may also be part of the flight plan. This may be a useful indication of the aircraft position in the circuit on the ND. However, visual references must be used. Therefore, at the beginning of the downwind leg: Manually ACTIVATE APPR. Select FDs to OFF. Select TRK-FPA to have FPV displayed. Check A/THR active. Extend the downwind leg to 45 s ( wind correction). Turn into base leg with a maximum of 30 of bank. Descent with approximate FPA, in FLAPS 2, at F speed. FINAL APPROACH The speed trend arrow and FPV help the flight crew make timely and correct thrust settings (if in manual thrust), and approach path corrections. Avoid descending through the correct approach path with idle thrust. (Late recognition of this situation without a prompt thrust increase may lead to considerable speed decay and altitude loss). Ensure that the aircraft is stabilized on the final descent path at VAPP (or ground speed mini) in the landing configuration with the thrust stabilized (usually above idle) at 500 ft above airfield elevation or as restricted by Operator policy/regulations.

If the aircraft is not stabilized, the flight crew must initiate a go-around, unless they think that only small corrections are necessary to rectify minor deviations from stabilized conditions due, amongst others, to external perturbations. Avoid any tendency to duck under in the late stages of the approach. Avoid destabilizing the approach in the last 100 ft, in order to have the best chance of performing a good touchdown at the desired position. VISUAL APPROACH (1 OR 2 ENGINES) PATTERN

If the airport regulations restrict the use of thrust reversers, select and maintain the thrust levers in reverse idle position until taxi speed is reached. A slight pitch up that can be easily controlled by the pilot, may occur when the thrust reversers are deployed before the nose landing gear touches down. After reverse thrust is selected, the flight crew must perform a full stop landing. GROUND SPOILERS.......................................................................................

If no ground spoilers are extended: Verify and confirm that both thrust levers are set to IDLE or REV detent. Set both thrust reverser levers to REV MAX, and fully press the brake pedals. Note: If ground spoilers are not armed, ground spoilers extend at reverser thrust selection. REVERSERS.................................................................................................... CHECK/ANNOUNCE Check that the ECAM E/WD displays that the reverse deployment is as expected (REV green). DIRECTIONAL CONTROL.................................................................................MONITOR/ENSURE Monitor directional control, if the rollout is automatic. Ensure directional control, if rollout is manual. Use rudder pedals for directional control. Do not use the nosewheel steering control handle before reaching taxi speed. During rollout, the flight crew should avoid sidestick inputs (either lateral or longitudinal). If directional control problems are encountered, the flight crew should reduce thrust to reverse idle until directional control is satisfactory.

BRAKES............................................................................................................................. AS RQRD Monitor the autobrake, if it is ON. When required, brake with the pedals Although the green hydraulic system supplies the braking system, if pedals are pressed rapidly, a brake pressure indication appears briefly on the BRAKE PRESS indicator. Braking may begin before the nosewheel has touched down, if required for performance reasons. However, when comfort is the priority, the flight crew should delay braking until the nosewheel has touched down. Note: If no ground spoilers are extended, the autobrake is not activated. DECELERATION.............................................................................................. CHECK/ANNOUNCE The deceleration is felt by the flight crew, and confirmed by the speed trend on the PFD. The deceleration may also be confirmed by the DECEL light (if autobrake is ON).

AT 70 KT BOTH THRUST LEVERS.................................................................................................. REV IDLE It is better to reduce thrust when passing 70 kt. However, high levels of reverse thrust may be used in order to control aircraft speed in the case of an emergency. CAUTION Avoid the use of high levels of reverse thrust at low airspeed, unless required due to an emergency. The distortion of the airflow, caused by gases reentering the compressor, can cause engine stalls that may result in excessive EGT.

AT TAXI SPEED BOTH THRUST LEVERS..................................................................................................FWD IDLE When reaching taxi speed, and before leaving the runway, deselect the reversers. On snow-covered grounds, the reversers should be stowed when the aircraft speed reaches 25 kt. When deselecting the reversers, be careful not to apply forward thrust by moving the thrust levers beyond the FWD IDLE position. CAUTION Except in an emergency, do not use the reverse thrust to control the aircraft speed while on taxiways.

On taxiways, the use of reversers, even when restricted to idle thrust, would have the following effects: The engines may ingest fine sand and debris that may be detrimental to the engines and airframe systems. On snowcovered areas, snow will recirculate into the air inlet, and may cause an engine flameout or rollback.

COMMUNICATIONS AND STANDARD TERMS


Applicable to: ALL

Standard phraseology is essential to ensure effective crew communication. The phraseology should be concise and exact. The following Chapter lists the callouts that should be used as standard. They supplement the callouts identified in the SOP. These standard Airbus callouts are also designed to promote situational awareness, and to ensure crew understanding of systems and their use in line operation. CHECKLIST CALLOUTS
Applicable to: ALL

CHECK: A command for the other pilot to check an item. CHECKED: A response that an item has been checked. CROSSCHECKED: A callout verifying information from both pilot stations. If a checklist needs to be interrupted, announce: HOLD CHECKLIST AT ___ and RESUME CHECKLIST AT ___ for the continuation. Upon completion of a checklist announce: __CHECKLIST COMPLETE.

ACTIONS COMMANDED BY PF
Applicable to: ALL

GENERAL The following commands do not necessarily initiate a guidance mode change, eg.: selected to managed/managed to selected. The intent is to ensure clear, consistent, standard communication between crewmembers. All actions performed on the FCU and MCDU must be checked on the PFD and ND (eg.: FL 350 blue, FL 200 magenta"). Ensure that the correct FCU knob is used, then verify indications on the PFD/ND. SET The SET command means using an FCU knob to set a value, but not to change a mode. SET is accomplished by only rotating the appropriate selection knob. Example: SET GO AROUND ALTITUDE__ SET QNH __ SET FL __ SET HDG __

MANAGE/PULL The MANAGE command means pushing an FCU knob to engage, or arm, a managed mode or target. The PULL command means pulling an FCU knob to engage a selected mode or target. Example: "PULL HDG 090 (HDG/TRK knob is pulled and turned). MANAGE NAV (HDG/TRK knob is pushed). FL 190 PULL (ALT knob is turned and pulled). FL 190 MANAGE (ALT knob is turned and pushed). PULL SPEED 250 KNOTS (SPD/MACH knob is pulled and turned). MANAGE SPEED (SPD/MACH knob is pushed). Note: If the value was previously set, there is no requirement to repeat the figure. Simply call e.g. PULL HDG: PULL SPEED: FL PULL.

The VS/FPA knob has no managed function. The standard callouts for the use of this knob are as follows: V/S Plus (or Minus) 700 PULL, or FPA Minus 3 PULL (V/S/FPA knob is turned and pulled) PUSH TO LEVEL OFF (V/S/FPA knob is pushed) ARM The ARM __ command means arming a system by pushing the specified FCU button. e.g. : ARM APPROACH e.g. : ARM LOC. ON/OFF The simple ON or OFF command is used for the autopilot, flight directors, autothrust and the bird (flight path vector). e.g.: BIRD ON (The HDG-V/S / TRK-FPA pb is pushed.) FMA
Applicable to: ALL

The PF should call out any FMA change, unless specified differently (e.g. CAT II & III task sharing). Therefore, the PF should announce: All armed modes with the associated color (e.g. blue, magenta): G/S blue, LOC blue. All active modes without the associated color (e.g. green, white): NAV, ALT.

VERTICAL FLIGHT PLAN ENTERING/MODIFYING A SPEED LIMIT

PRESS the F-PLN key on the MCDU. SELECT VERTICAL REVISION at the FROM waypoint. WRITE a new speed limit/altitude and ENTER. The crew can insert one climb speed limit and one descent speed limit into the vertical flight plan, or modify or clear the limits that are already in it. The speed limit is defined by a speed and an altitude (for example, 230/9 000), which means that the managed speed target will be limited by the speed limit when the aircraft flies below the specified altitude. In both climb and descent, 250 kt at 10 000 ft is the default speed limit in the vertical flight plan. The vertical revision page presents the climb speed (CLB SPD) limit if the revised waypoint is between departure and top of descent. The vertical revision page shows the descent speed (DES SPD) limit, if the revised waypoint is between top of descent and destination. It can be deleted by a clear action, the field reverts to brackets. It can also be cleared directly on the F-PLN A page by clearing the SPD LIM pseudo-waypoint. CHECK and INSERT the TMPY F-PLN or continue with next revision.

A speed constraint can also be entered directly on F-PLN page, without using VERT REV page.

When predictions are not yet available, the constraints are displayed on the F-PLN A page in magenta. When predictions are available, the speed constraint is highlighted by a star (*). * If the predicted speed matches the constraint, the star is magenta. * If the prediction is that the aircraft will miss the speed constraint, the star is amber. If a speed constraint cannot be met (by more than 10 kt), the FMGS generates the message SPD ERROR AT WPT XX. A speed constraint may be assigned to any waypoint in the climb or the descent phase except the FROM, origin, or destination waypoints, and any pseudo waypoint. When a speed constraint is assigned to a waypoint, the constraint will limit the managed speed target as follows: In takeoff or climb phase until you pass the constrained waypoint. In descent an approach phase, after passing the constrained waypoint. Speed constraints are observed by the FMGS when NAV mode and speed managed are active. ENTERING A SPEED CONSTRAINT THROUGH F-PLN A PAGE You may also enter a speed constraint through the F-PLN A page.

In case of QFE operations, the altitude constraints defined in heights (QFE) must be converted and entered in the FMS as altitudes (QNH). 2. An altitude constraint can also be entered directly on F-PLN page, without using VERT REV page.

You or the database may assign an altitude constraint to any waypoint in the climb or descent phases except the FROM, origin, or destination waypoints, or any pseudo waypoint. An altitude constraint may be defined as an at, an at or above, or an at or below constraint. In certain procedures, the database may define an altitude constraint as a window in which the aircraft should fly. Enter AT constraints with no sign. Enter AT or ABOVE constraints preceded by a + sign (+FL 130, for example). Enter AT or BELOW constraints preceded by a sign (-15 000, for example). enter four or five-digit number when entering altitude. Include the lead zero (0 500 ft , for example). For flight level, enter a two- or three-digit number, with or without the letters FL. The lead zero is optional. (Examples : +FL 120 or + 120 ; -FL 090 or -90 or - 090) Enter the altitude value as either altitude or flight level ; the MCDU displays the selected value as an ALT or FL, as appropriate for the transition altitude. The constraint must be higher than the thrust reduction altitude and lower than the cruise flight level. Once inserted in the flight plan, the altitude constraint (ALT CSTR) is displayed in magenta as long as predictions are not available. When predictions are available, the altitude constraints are replaced by the predicted altitude at relevant waypoints highlighted by a star. * If the predicted altitude matches the constraint the star is magenta. If the predicted altitude is missed (by more than 250 ft), the star is amber.

ENTER the planned BLOCK fuel, as indicated in the computerized flight plan (CFP) If the planned BLOCK fuel is not available, the crew may obtain a prediction of the minimum BLOCK fuel required for the flight by pressing the FUEL PLANNING prompt [3R]. Pressing this prompt makes the FMS compute the minimum required BLOCK fuel, which is the BLOCK fuel required to have EXTRA fuel = 0, based on the parameters entered on the INIT and F-PLN pages. The computed BLOCK fuel value is displayed in the [2R] field, and a BLOCK CONFIRM prompt appears in the [3R] field. Note: In order to obtain a realistic fuel computation, the flight crew should ensure that the F-PLN initialization has been completed (including insertion of the ALTN F-PLN and/or ALTN fuel and/or MIN DEST FOB if necessary), and that flight parameters, such as CRZ FL, steps climbs (if any), and winds, have been inserted.

When the final Load and Trim Sheet (LTS) data are available:

ENTER the final ZFW/ZFWCG [1R], and the required BLOCK fuel [2R]. The FMS computes the predictions, based on the entered BLOCK fuel, and estimates the EXTRA fuel value. CHECK the resulting computed data, against the data planned on the CFP: TRIP fuel, RTE RSV fuel, ALTN fuel, FINAL and EXTRA fuel values. If necessary, the flight crew may modify the ALTN or FINAL fuel values. PRINT the PREFLIGHT REPORT, if necessary. When the final load sheet values (ZFW/ZFWCG/BLOCK) have been entered, the crew may print the pre-flight report, which provides a copy of the F-PLN with the associated FMS predictions.
Applicable to: ALL

TAKEOFF WITH NO WEIGHT/CG DATA If the crew does not enter ZFW/ZFWCG data prior takeoff, or if the FMGC looses these values due to a power interruption, the following will occur: At takeoff, the Speed Reference System (SRS) mode is available (provided a V2 has been inserted) When the aircraft leaves the SRS mode, the target speed becomes the current speed and reverts to selected. Note: If the AP/FD has reverted to ALT or V/S (FPA) mode, the associated A/THR mode is SPEED. In this case, the system will probably reduce thrust, because the speed will be equal to, or greater than, the target speed.

When appropriate, to regain FMS predictions and associated managed modes: INSERT the ZFW/ZFWCG values on the FUEL PRED page.

PROCEDURE Before takeoff : SET the appropriate HDG or TRK in the FCU window. This disarms the navigation mode and allows the runway mode to remain engaged after takeoff. After takeoff : PULL HDG/TRK selector knob. The heading or track mode engages on the preset value.

The direction in which the pilot rotates the HDG/TRK selection knob usually determines the direction of the turn. A left rotation (decreasing heading) produces a left turn ; a right rotation produces a right turn. However, when a heading has been preset before takeoff or go-around, the direction of the turn will be such as to cause the shortest turn at the moment of engagement. CANCELLING THE HEADING/TRACK PRESET FUNCTION The pilot can cancel the heading preset by pushing the HDG/TRK selector knob back in again. This engages or arms the NAV mode.

REACHING CRUISE FLIGHT LEVEL
Applicable to: ALL

On reaching the cruise flight level, the flight crew should be sure that the FMA displays ALT CRZ in its second column, which ensures that the aircraft is at cruise flight level and at Economy Cruise Mach (ECON CRZ MACH).

The FMGS engages the soft altitude (SOFT ALT) mode 2 min after the cruise flight level is captured and Mach stabilized. (SOFT ALT) mode allows the aircraft to deviate 50 ft from the target altitude to minimize the thrust variation and reduce the fuel consumption. If the FMA does not display ALT CRZ at the assigned flight level, soft altitude mode will not engage and the predictions will be computed at the preplanned flight level. This will occur when the ATC assigned flight level is lower than the preplanned flight level entered on the PROG page. If the FMA does not display ALT CRZ at the assigned FL (as may occur when the ATC-assigned FL is lower than the preplanned FL selected initially): PRESS the [PROG] key. ENTER the current cruise flight level. Note: If the current cruise flight level is above the preplanned FL, selecting the FCU updates it automatically.

SET SPD AUTO (OR SET MANAGED SPD) If the climb phase was flown in selected speed and if the cruise phase is planned to be flown in managed speed (ECON MACH/SPEED) , SET SPD AUTO (or SET MANAGED SPEED) appears on the PFD and MCDU as a reminder.

MONITORING THE NAVIGATION ACCURACY


Applicable to: ALL

GENERAL On aircraft equipped with GPS PRIMARY, the navigation accuracy check is not required as long as GPS PRIMARY is available. Otherwise, navigation accuracy shall be checked periodically in cruise. The PROG page displays an estimated accuracy as being high or low (center of sixth line): HIGH means that the FMGS estimates the FM position accurate enough to meet the EN ROUTE criteria LOW means that the pilot must compare raw data from tuned navaids with corresponding data computed by FM and shown on the ND or MCDU PROG page. The appearance of the message NAV ACCUR DOWNGRAD on the MCDU calls for a similar crosscheck. Note: The pilot should make such a comparison periodically, even if the PROG page is displaying HIGH and navaids are available: this allows him to quantify the FM position error.

The method for checking the accuracy is explained in the SOP and in Evaluation of position accuracy chapter (Refer to DSC-22_20-20-20 General). A quick check is explained here below when the TO waypoint is a DME type. (VOR/DME or VOR/TAC or DME or TAC)

IMMEDIATE CHANGE OF LEVEL IN CRUISE


Applicable to: ALL

When the flight crew changes the flight level through a FCU altitude selection: If the FCU-selected altitude is above the previous CRZ FL, the CRZ FL on the PROG page changes to the new flight level. If the FCU-selected altitude is lower than the previous CRZ FL and if the distance to DEST is more than 200 nm, the CRZ FL on the PROG page changes. In that case Mach target is managed as follows: At the start of the descent, the Mach target is the managed Mach number at the initial cruise flight level. When the aircraft reaches the new flight level, the Mach target switches either to the Mach number for the lower CRZ FL, or to the speed for the lower CRZ FL if the aircraft reaches the crossover altitude. This logic prevents the aircraft from exceeding VMO during descent. If the FCU-selected altitude is lower than the previous CRZ FL and the aircraft is within 200 nm of its destination, the system activates the descent phase. The pilot may reactivate the cruise phase by entering a new cruise flight level in the PROG page. CAUTION If the pilot modifies the CRZ FL on the PROG page without setting the FCU altitude, the FMS may target a Speed/Mach above VMO/MMO. Changing the FCU altitude makes the FMS behavior become correct again.

Descent
DESCENT INITIATION
Applicable to: ALL

The top of descent, displayed on the F-PLN page (T/D) and on the ND ( ), is a position that the system calculates, assuming that the aircraft will begin its descent in DES mode with managed speed, and that the system will guide the aircraft along the descent profile computed with all the vertical F-PLN data (ALT CSTR, ECON or AUTO MACH/SPD, SPD CSTR, SPD LIMIT) to reach VAPP at 1 000 ft AGL. Note: The ND does not display the top of descent when HDG (or TRACK) mode is engaged. PROCEDURES When the aircraft reaches the top of descent (F/D) : SELECT the altitude target. PUSH the ALT selector knob. DES mode engages. CHECK the FMA annunciators.

DESCENT MONITORING
Applicable to: ALL

DES MODE ENGAGED When DES mode is engaged, NAV mode is engaged, and the system takes into account all altitude and speed constraints. The key parameter for monitoring the descent is the vertical deviation (VDEV) displayed on the PFD and on the PROG page, which indicates whether the aircraft is on, above, or below the descent profile. PROCEDURE SET the ATC-cleared altitude on the FCU (considering also what is the safe altitude). If the lowest safe altitude is higher than the ATC-cleared altitude, check with ATC that this constraint applies. If it is confirmed, SET the FCU altitude to the safe altitude until it is safe to go to the ATC-cleared altitude. MONITOR vertical deviation (VDEV) on the PFD and the PROG page. MONITOR the speed change that occurs, when the aircraft reaches a speed change symbol (magenta ball) under managed speed.

MONITOR the FMA (ALT*, ALT CST*, ALT, ALT CST), when the aircraft reaches level symbols. If the aircraft is on the descent profile: The aircraft is considered to be on the vertical profile, when it is within 50 ft of it. VDEV is close to zero, and the system predicts that it will match constraints until the aircraft levels off at the next FCU altitude. MONITOR the predicted descent point after the next level-off. A/THR adjusts thrust for the particular segment. The first FMA column may display THR IDLE or SPEED.

If the aircraft is above the descent profile: VDEV is down on the PFD and positive on the PROG page. A/THR sets IDLE thrust and the AP increases speed by calling for down elevator. If the aircraft reaches the upper limit of the managed speed range, the aircraft diverges and maintains the upper limit speed.

OP DES, V/S OR FPA MODE ENGAGED In either case, the aircraft is no longer guided on the descent profile and altitude constraints are disregarded. If NAV mode is engaged the ND displays a white circle on waypoint with an altitude constraint. If NAV mode is disengaged, the circle is removed. The PFD still shows VDEV for reference purposes. The target altitude is always the FCU selected altitude (shown in blue). On the ND, level-off symbol is blue (no constraint). If NAV mode is engaged and the speed target managed, speed constraints are considered.

When HDG or TRK mode is engaged, vertical position may also be assessed on the ND using the energy circle. It is displayed as a green arc oriented on the current track and centered on the aircraft current position. Note: Altitude and speed predictions displayed on the F-PLN page assume an immediate return to DES mode.

PROCEDURE SET the FCU altitude as cleared by ATC, while considering the applicable safe altitude. If the next safe altitude is higher than the ATC-cleared altitude, check with the ATC to verify that this constraint applies.

If the aircraft is cleared for an ILS approach, when it is higher than 8 200 ft AGL (TRT), or 5 000 ft AGL (Collins), or 7 900 ft AGL (Honeywell), proceed as follows: PRESS the APPR pushbutton on the FCU. When aligned on the localizer, check LOC and G/S engagement: CAT 1 is displayed on the FMA. (Radio altimeters not yet valid). Check that the FMA displays the correct capability for the intended approach, when the aircraft is below 5 000 ft AGL.
Applicable to: ALL

GLIDESLOPE INTERCEPTION FROM ABOVE If the aircraft is above the glideslope, the system will not capture the G/S automatically. The pilot must bring the aircraft onto the glideslope beam, and select an appropriate V/S to intercept it. Refer to PRO-NOR-SOP-18-A Initial Approach - General.
Applicable to: ALL

DATA LOCK When the aircraft reaches 700 ft RA with APPR mode (LOC and G/S) armed or engaged, the ILS FREQ and course are frozen in the receiver. This function (ILS tune inhibit) is available, when at least one AP/FD is engaged. Any attempt to change the ILS frequency or CRS, via the MCDU or RMP, does not affect the receiver. If the speed is managed, the system does not accept any modifications the pilot may enter on the PERF APPR page (surface wind, selected landing configuration, or VAPP) for speed guidance purposes below this altitude. When the aircraft reaches 400 ft RA, LAND mode engages. The flight crew can only disengage this mode by engaging the GO AROUND mode.
Applicable to: ALL

USE OF RMPS FOR ILS/DME If both FMGCs fail, the flight crew can use the RMPs (Radio Management Panels 1 and 2) for back up tuning. Either RMP controls ILS. Prior to select an ILS frequency on one of the RMPs, the flight crew has to select NAV button from RMP 1 and RMP 2. If the ILS has a DME, the PFD will not display the DME distance. In this situation, the flight crew will fly without DME information. If necessary, increase the Decision height (DH) accordingly.

LOCALIZER (LOC) BEAM CAPTURE The flight crew must always monitor the capture of a LOC beam. During this evolution, the PFD and ND must indicate that associated deviation indications move toward the centre of the scale. To avoid performing a false capture, the flight crew must be careful not to arm the LOC to early. The following graph shows the angle of interception versus distance to the runway threshold that ensures that the aircraft will not overshoot the axis by more than one and a half dot.

The capture begins when the deviation is two dots or less. It is programmed to line the aircraft up on the beam with a single overshoot, even if the intercept angle is large. Note: ICAO requires LOC beam to ensure a normal capture within 10 nm and plus or minus 35 from the course centerline. Some ILS systems just meet the requirement and are subject to false capture outside these limits.

SWITCHING FROM NON ILS TO ILS APPROACH


Applicable to: ALL

If an ILS approach is possible when a non ILS was previously scheduled, use one of the following procedures: USE OF SECOND FLIGHT PLAN Use a secondary flight plan to prepare the alternate ILS approach, time permitting. COPY the ACTIVE flight plan. REVISE the ARRIVAL: insert the ILS approach and the applicable STAR/VIA. On the RAD NAV page, TUNE in the ILS manually. REVISE the PERF APPR page. CHANGE OF THE CLEARANCE ATC changes the clearance from the non-ILS to the ILS approach. If a secondary flight plan has been prepared: ACTIVATE the SEC F-PLN and adjust. Follow subsequent standard procedures. If a secondary flight plan has not been prepared: REVISE the ARRIVAL on the primary F-PLN, inserting the ILS approach. REVISE the PERF APPR page. Follow subsequent standard procedures. CAUTION If the pilot decides to fly the ILS approach without revising the arrival of the primary flight plan (a non ILS approach is in the F-PLN), LOC and G/S modes will not be available when he presses the APPR pushbutton. Consequently, he should: Manually TUNE in the ILS on the RAD NAV page: CHECK that the "CHECK APPR SELECTION" message comes up. Press the ILS pushbutton and select ROSE ILS on the EIS CONTROL panel. Use HDG, V/S or TRK, FPA modes to fly the ILS.

TASK SHARING DURING CAT I, CAT II AND CAT III APPROACH AND LANDING
Applicable to: ALL

LIM-22-20 section of this FCOM provides all limitations regarding CAT I, CAT II, and CAT III approaches and landings. This includes precautions to be taken when performing autoland on CAT I ILS beam with good visibility. Anytime a precision approach is performed the PNF must announce that a flight parameter is being exceeded, if: During glide beam capture: Pitch attitude becomes less than -2.5 or greater than +10 (nose up). Vertical speed exceeds + 500 ft/min or -1 250 ft/min. During final approach: Speed goes below speed target - 5 kt or above speed target + 10 kt ( SPEED) Pitch attitude goes below -2.5 or above 10 (PITCH) Bank angle becomes greater than 7 (BANK) Descent rate becomes greater than 1 000 ft/min (SINK RATE) There is too much LOC or GLIDE deviation (LOCALIZER or GLIDE). If the flight crew suspects that autopilot guidance is not effective, they should: Use the instinctive disconnect pushbutton to disconnect the autopilot, or Perform an automatic go-around. The flight crew may perform a CAT II/CAT III approach, if: The FMA displays the corresponding category The required systems and functions are operative The airport is approved for the intended operations They are qualified to perform the specific approach. CAT III APPROACH AUTO CALL OUT RA is mandatory. A/THR in SPEED MODE is mandatory. Note: AUTO CALL OUT is not mandatory for CAT 2 approach: The PNF may perform this function.

LANDING CATEGORIES
Applicable to: ALL

Each FMGC computes its own landing category : CAT1, CAT2, CAT3 single, and CAT3 dual and displays the corresponding landing category on the FMAs. Each category depends upon the availability of aircraft systems and functions. When the landing category downgrades, a triple clic aural warning is activated.

FAIL-OPERATIONAL AUTOMATIC LANDING SYSTEM An automatic landing system is fail-operational if, in the event of a failure below alert height, the remaining part of the automatic system allows the aircraft to complete the approach, flare, and landing. A CAT 3 DUAL system is a fail-operational automatic landing system. Note: In the event of a failure, the automatic landing system operates as a fail-passive system. FAIL-PASSIVE AUTOMATIC LANDING SYSTEM An automatic landing system is fail-passive if, in the event of a failure, there is no significant out-of-trim condition or deviation of flight path or attitude, but the landing is not completed automatically. A CAT3 single system is a fail-passive automatic landing system. Note: With a fail-passive automatic landing system the pilot assumes control of the aircraft after a failure.

Below 100 ft (radio altimeter), the FMGS freezes the landing capability until LAND mode is disengaged or both APs are off. Therefore a failure occurring below 100 ft does not change the category of the system. ALERT HEIGHT The alert height is the height above touch down, above which a CAT3 autoland would be discontinued and a missed approach executed, if a failure occurred in either the airplane systems or the relevant ground equipments. Below the alert height, if such a failure occurs, the flare, touchdown and roll out may be accomplished using the remaining automatic system. WARNINGS FOR ILS APPROACH
Applicable to: ALL

AUTOLAND WARNING With LAND or FLARE green on the FMA and at least one AP engaged, the AUTOLAND red light appears on the glareshield when the aircraft is below 200 ft RA and one of the following events occurs: The autopilots are lost, or The aircraft gets too far off the beam (LOC or G/S flash on PFD), or Loss of LOC signal above 15 ft, or loss of glide signal above 100 ft (transmitter or receivers). The difference between both radio altimeter indications is greater than 15 ft. When the Autoland light comes on, Autoland must be discontinued (Refer to PRO-NOR-SRP-01-70 FAILURES AND ASSOCIATED ACTIONS BELOW 1000 FT DURING A CAT II APPROACH,

WARNING OF EXCESSIVE BEAM DEVIATION This warning is a flashing of the LOC and G/S scales on the PFD and ND ROSE ILS. It occurs whenever: G/S deviation is greater than 1 dot (above 100 ft RA). LOC deviation is greater than 1/4 dot (above 15 ft RA). WARNING ASSOCIATED WITH ILS "LANDING CAPABILITY" Any downgrading in the aircrafts capability for automatic approach and landing sounds a triple-click aural warning. FAILURE OF BOTH LOCALIZER AND GLIDESLOPE RECEIVERS The PFD and ND (rose ILS mode) display red LOC and G/S flags (if the ILS pushbutton has been pressed green). LOC and G/S scales disappear from the PFD. If LOC or G/S modes are engaged and at least one AP/FD is engaged The AP disengages. The FD reverts to its HDG-V/S or TRK-FPA modes. FAILURE OF LOCALIZER OR GLIDESLOPE TRANSMITTER (WHEN CAPTURED) The corresponding index is lost. The LOC and G/S scales flash. The corresponding FD bar flashes. Above 200 ft RA, if the transmitter failure lasts less than 7 s, the FMA retains the LOC and G/S modes (or the LAND mode) and the APs are able to regain these modes. If the failure lasts longer than 7 s, the AP disengages and the FD reverts to its basic modes. Below 200 ft RA, if the transmitter failure occurs, the AUTOLAND warning appears, indicating that the crew must perform a GO AROUND (if insufficient visual references) with one or 2 APs engaged.

CHECK, on the ND, the TO waypoint, the F-PLN to the MAP, and the missed approach procedure (blue line). SELECT the go-around altitude on the FCU. ADJUST the FPA to fly the intended vertical flight path. At minimum: If visual references are acquired and confirmed by both crewmembers: DISCONNECT the AP and FD and continue visually. If visual references are not acquired: INITIATE a go-around. FINAL APPROACH DURING APPROACH WITH RNP < 0.3 NM The procedure is more restrictive: Managed lateral and vertical guidance is mandatory LDEV and VDEV are monitored A go around is performed if GPS primary is lost or if AP disengages and cannot be reengaged during the approach, or XTE exceeds the published value for the intended procedures. Note: LDEV and VDEV should be considered as monitoring tools and not as navigation tools.

Note: If the pilot is using the AP, select the final FPA approximately 0.3 nm before the final approach fix.

SELECT a go around altitude on FCU. USE raw data to monitor aircraft position and flight path. AT MDA/MDH: If visual references are acquired DISCONNECT the autopilot and continue the approach visually. If visual references are not acquired INITIATE a go around NON DIRECTIONAL BEACON (NDB) APPROACH TYPE When the flight plan calls for an NDB approach, the system automatically tunes the ADF, only when the aircraft is passing the first fix of the approach. Therefore, it is convenient to manually tune the ADF earlier (before activating the approach phase). Fly a Non Directional Beacon (NDB) approach as any non precision approach. LOC APPROACH TYPE SELECT the LOC pushbutton in intermediate approach, to arm the LOC mode. CAUTION Do not select the APPR pushbutton. SELECT the ND in ROSE LS mode. Upon reaching the final approach fix: MONITOR LOC engagement. SELECT the FPA to the final descent path angle. Note: In case of a dual Radio Altimeter (RA) failure, the LOC pb can still be used to arm the LOC mode, as it does not depend on the RA signal.

Note:

If the distance to the runway is not properly assessed, a step descent approach may be considered and a level-off at minimum may be performed while searching for visual references. If the pilot has no visual reference at the MAP, at the latest, he must initiate a go-around. CIRCLING APPROACH

If the runway in use is not the flight plan runway, the ground speed and the VAPP will not be computed properly, and the speed on final may be higher than excepted. Therefore, select the approach speed directly on the FCU. VISUAL APPROACH
Applicable to: ALL

When flying visual, the pilot may select an appropriate STAR and RWY in use on the MCDU. The ND displays the extended runway centerline five nautical miles out from the runway. This helps the pilot during the final turn. Along with the FPV, the PFD displays a track bug that may help the pilot to fly the downwind leg and intercept final. The FPV should be flown laterally with reference to the track bug.

Go-Around
MONITORING THE GO-AROUND
Applicable to: ALL

Engage the GO-AROUND phase and GO-AROUND modes by setting the thrust levers to the TOGA position, if at least CONF1 is selected. When the GO-AROUND phase is engaged, the previously-flown approach is automatically strung back into the flight plan at the end of the missed approach procedure. In the GO-AROUND phase, the system makes no predictions. Consequently, CLB and DES modes are not available, and the flight crew must monitor constraints. When the aircraft leaves the GO-AROUND phase, all predictions and modes become available again. During a GO-AROUND phase, the managed speed is Green Dot.

HEADING/TRACK PRESET FUNCTION IN GO-AROUND PHASE The flight crew can use the heading/track preset, when LOC*, LOC, LAND, FINAL or GA is engaged. SET the appropriate heading, or track value, in the window of the FCU. When necessary, PULL the HDG/TRK selection knob to engage the mode on the preset value. GO-AROUND PROFILE
