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.

Auto Throttle moving to idle after take-off?!

Recommended Posts

This problem does not always occur but has several times now. Despite the fact that the Take-Off config checks out OK, I still from time to time get this problem.

I do not use FLEX (although even when I have this problem has occurred). With all systems checked OK prior to T/Off, I steadily increase thrust to TO/GA. Once Vr is obtained I pull gently to 10 degrees nose pitch up and begin the climb.

Even before reaching thrust reduced altitude, the auto throttle pulls back to idle and I cannot regain control and the aircraft stalls (even after adjusting pitch).

I don't believe it is my joystick/throttle (Wingman 3D Extreme) but would appreciate any insight.

It seems there are massive problems with autothrust.. TOGA means TOGA, maximum thrust, but in the Airbus X it is modulated. Same for climb thrust.. Flex does not work out well, and when a Felx temp is being set, TOGA doesn't work anymore.

Well, for your problem, which I also had, I found the following solution: dial up the speed to 250kts, but leave it in auto mode. By default the value is around 140kts, which lead to a thrust reduction once airborne.

Thanks MatzeH84, I'll give this a try.
