A319 - A330 MCDU VRB wind entry

Recommended Posts

A319 - A330 MCDU VRB wind entry
In the MCDU, the values for
QNH, TEMP, MAG WIND, etc. entered.
I enter the wind e.g. (270) ° / 10.
For VRB 05 wind I only enter / 05.
It looks like this (   ) ° / 05.
Does this entry have any meaning or value for the Airbus landing?
In other words - is this value used in the Airbus at all?
thank you

In der MCDU wird vor der Landung die Werte für 
QNH, TEMP, MAG WIND, usw eingetragen.
Den Wind trage ich ein z.B   ( 270 ) ° /10 .
Beim VRB 05 Wind trage ich nur   /05 ein. 
Das  sieht dann so aus (    )° /05 . 
Hat dieser Eintrag dann überhaupt eine Bedeutung oder Wert für die Airbus Landung. 
Anders gefragt - Wird dieser Wert überhaupt im Airbus verwendet ? 
Danke

Yes the value is used and has to be entered as value. If you have a variable use the average.

When ATIS reports winds as variable, or when ATC passes it along, it usually comes in the format of "Winds 230/12, varying between 200 and 260". As masterhawk said you enter the average which is the first value given of 230 degrees.
