    This is a complex issue.... 


    There is a 0.25 degree downtrim for 8 seconds (resulting in -2 degrees) triggered  at 50 ft AGL in the A320 range. But in the most recent A330 manuals we have this is NOT indicated and our A330 pilots have assured us that the back pressure needed on the A330 is not the same as in the smaller busses. So talking about 'Airbus Logic' is not correct in this aspect. There are differences between different models.


    For now we do not believe we need to change this behavior. When the real pilots we use for input advise me differently we reopen this topic.  For now things are as they are.



    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  5. 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.



  6. 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.

    Is that in general not possible in the A330 or just a thing of newer EIS2 version?

    I had taken that from the A32S FCOM.






    On the A330 it flashes ILS next to the LOC deviation scale. But when you turn on LS p/b, it does not show nothing. Currently it is showing ILS in magenta. I checked from A330Neos to old Ceos and they were all like this.

    - Will forward to de.


    Spacing is limitation of P3D. The other I will forward to dev.


    Will forward to dev.


    Depends on airlien and manuafaturer if ISIS.


    Will forward to dev.


    Will add to tracking system.

    I hope that me and @TGoncalves don't make it to difficult to develop things. :D

    In all seriousness, great product and great contact between the devs and the costumers.

  9. When the fuel starts transfering to the trim tank, the FUEL SD page displays the TRIM TK ISOL valve as closed.

    During fuel transfer, it should be open.

    It also appears that the TRIM TK XFR memo is missing. Don't know about the TRIM TK XFRD because I still have 7 hours to go...
