Mighty interesting! There is a clue in the FCOM: Four frequencies per FMGC If you check FCOM Chapter 22 § 20-20-30 you'll note it says: Each FMGC [Flight Management and Guidance Computer] automatically uses its four DME frequencies as follows: One DME frequency for display. It is possible to tune it manually or automatically. This DME frequency is also ...

The "LP fuel valve" and "LP fuel Shut off valve" are the same valve just being named differently in different sections of the FCOM. The valve is located in the wing leading edge and is also sometimes referred to as “spar valve” by engineers who also work on Boeing aircraft.

First of all, RA1 is showed on the captain PFD and RA2 is showed on the F/O PFD. If one is detected as failed, the functional one is showed in both PFDs. This behavior is fixed, there is no way for the pilots to change it (instead, you can change the IR and ADR data with the relative knobs on the pedestal). Now, two questions bring up: How the system ...

They are the same valve. The engine has two fuel (shut off) valves: LP valve: This valve is located in the leading edge of the wing and can stop any fuel flowing towards the engine through the pylon. When it is closed (e.g. by the fire handle), the entire engine with all of its systems is starved of fuel. HP valve: This valve is located deep within the ...

I'm resuming this old question because no answer was given. It depends on where the smoke is detected (if automatically detected). The following abnormal procedures exist: SMOKE FWD(AFT) CARGO SMOKE SMOKE LAVATORY SMOKE AVIONICS SMOKE SMOKE/FUMES/AVNCS SMOKE + REMOVAL OF SMOKE/FUMES The checklists 1, 2, 3 have the corresponding ECAM message automatically ...

A normal climb is performed with a constant thrust1 and a constant speed. The autothrust system will take care of the constant thrust (THR CLB) and the autopilot (or flight director for manual flight) will take care of the constant speed. This means you maintain the target speed by pitching up or down. If the speed is below target, pitch down to increase ...
