Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Discussion on Real World A320 Operations

Recommended Posts

I posted this picture a few days ago for fun and for some discussion (NO RW BUS Pilots allowed!) does anyone know why the flaps are in the 1 position instead of 0 while parked at the stand??

 

Im guessing you do since no one asked before.

I can’t really make out the OAT reading, but I’m assuming it’s for venting of the equipment under the spoilers and flaps?

In hot temperatures (>30 degrees C) it's sop to park in config 1+f, to avoid the wings getting too hot and triggering a spurious (bleed) air leak fault.

Quite often you find the fuellers won't touch the aircraft until the flaps are up, in case they contact the flaps with their bowser and get sent the bill. To be fair to them there's not a lot of room under there.

Nicely done!

 

part II.

 

so if the flaps have to remain up for refueling and were say 45C outside,  how do we keep from getting this incorrect Wing Bleed Leak ECAM message?

Bill, could you move this line of conversation towards the Radio Chatter Room or the Real Aviation section of the forum? 

 

I think a lot of people are interested in these facts (without having to search pprune) but it is just more clutter in our Airbus preview forum. 

 

Thanks.

Can do but I don't know if I have the ability to move it however I certainly will refrain from continuing the conversation here, my apologies.

I created some discussion in another forum and was asked to post here which would be more appropriate.
