  1. ARINC 424 waypoints are from the database. The pilot waypoints should also be displayed, yes.
  2. If that's the case, ARINC 424 waypoints (4020N, etc) should have been visible, no?
  3. Speaking of medium, let's ask for max as well
  4. Looking from A330 manuals in SmartCockpit (I assume those are really old ones, judjing by the looks) and to the most recent manuals in my company, A330 FCOM never mentioned how much down trim is applied. But the wording they use is still the same: "At 50 ft, a slight pitch down elevator order is applied.". I also agree that the flare needs less input than the A320, my only observation was the apparent lack of THS freezing at 100ft. FCOM DSC-27-20-10-20 FLARE MODE When the aircraft passes 100 ft RA, the THS is frozen and the normal flight mode changes to flare mode as the aircraft descends to land. Flare mode is essentially a direct stick-to-elevator relationship (with some damping provided by the load factor and the pitch rate feedbacks). At 50 ft, a slight pitch down elevator order is applied. Consequently, to flare the aircraft, a gentle nose-up action by the pilot is required. This is the latest FCOM available for a fleet of CEOs and NEOs.
  5. Just did a quick test. I noticed that the THS did not freeze at 100ft, as it did a small nose down input at about 80 or 90 feet. As for the nose up, I did not noticed anything. But it also did not make a small nose down, as supposed.
  6. Using A330 version If you open the DIR page, a list of waypoints is displayed. The page remains the same, even if those waypoints are being sequenced. When the waypoints are sequenced, they should disappear from the DIR page.

    FIRE Test

    Using A330 version If you have an ECAM page selected, when performing a FIRE Test, the ECAM page keeps displayed. It should change to the respective page (APU in case of APU FIRE Test or ENG in case of ENG FIRE Test).
  8. From what I can see, STEP ALTS can only be accessed in flight. Is it like this? It should be accessible during pre-flight aswel.

    ENG Fire Test

    When performing ENG Fire Test, it triggers ENG 1 FIRE and ENG 2 FIRE. The ECAM displays the ENG 1 FIRE warning but it should display ENG 1 FIRE. Due to the overflow, it should also display ENG 2 in red in the MEMO display.
  10. When flying in FPA and reverting to V/S, the V/S selected on the FCU gets reset to zero. It should be the V/S it had at the time of change.
  11. A330 with The automatic Outter to inner tank transfer appears on the FUEL SD page with filled green triangles. Being an automatic transfer, it should appear with empty green triangles. FCOM DSC-28-20
  12. @masterhawk how do you prefer for the reference? The image or the FCOM DSC-22_20-30-10-18 P 8/64?
  13. From my FCOM DSC-22_20-30-10-18 P 8/64 The chapter is the same, don't know about the page.
  14. A330 The FD should be automatically removed when the Pitch exceeds 25º UP or 13º DN. Also with the bank angle exceeding 45º. Is it the same for the A320, don't know how the A320 Pro is but I would assume the same. Taken from DSC-22_30-20 P 6/8
