This training video (available in VHS, Hi8, or DVD) is designed specifically
for the pilot flight crewmember new to the A300B4 aircraft.
This video provides "real time" step-by-step instruction on how to operate
the aircraft's Automatic Flight Control System (autopilot).
From the very beginning, Airbus has designed their aircraft to be flown "on
autopilot" from liftoff to touchdown. Pilots on the Airbus must
demonstrate a proficiency in operating the autopilot during normal, abnormal and
emergency situations in order to pass the required proficiency check and/or
rating ride. The only hand-flown maneuvers a pilot must demonstrate
proficiency are steep turns, stalls, and one "raw data" approach to minimums.
All the rest are done with the autopilot "ON" and the autopilot doing the actual
flying. Pilots must demonstrate that they can proficiently maneuver the
aircraft through autopilot programming during all normal, abnormal, and
emergency flying scenarios typically encountered during a proficiency check
and/or rating ride, and can only "hand fly" when the autopilot is inoperative!
This training video covers:
- Normal takeoff.
- Low speed and high speed climbs and descents.
- Normal ILS with Auto Land.
- Normal ILS with Go-Around.
- Takeoff with engine failure after V1.
- Low speed and high speed climbs and descents with a failed engine.
- Engine out ILS with Go-Around.
- Engine out ILS with Auto Land.
Mastery of these maneuvers is mandatory!
|Using this training video in the days preceding simulator training will
allow the trainee to be properly prepared for the simulator portion of A300B4
pilot training. Remember, this training video was made to meet an
observed need. From an instructor's perspective, the results were
absolutely remarkable. I can't imagine going into the simulator for the
first time without having chair-flown this video with the "how to" portion of
the Aircraft Operating Manual open on my lap for the course of a week.
It's that informative! Better yet, if there's any question, stop it,
back it up, and go over the question area until it is completely understood!|
|Being properly prepared by knowing how to properly program the autopilot
at simulator session period one, can save two to three simulator sessions.
If your training program is "train to proficiency" approved, this benefit can
save the cost of up to three simulator sessions. With a "dry" rate of
$200 per hour, you can save $1200.00 on the simulator alone! And if your
training program is not "train to proficiency" approved, your pilots can use
their mandatory simulator sessions actually learning how the aircraft
functions. Imagine how well they will perform if they can actually
accomplish the maneuvers, abnormal and emergency procedures specified in the
Aircraft Operating Manual without having to spend time bogged down on the
|This is one training aid that actually pays for itself. If you are
training on the A300B4, don't miss out on this item!|
