http://www.balticaa.com Baltic Aviation Academy's series of reportages guiding people to know better the aircraft controls are continued. This week Pranas Drulis, ATPL integrated student, explains what does it mean 'Cold and dark' in aviation. It will be shown how to start-up an airplane from the very beginning. Get a little preview before your type rating trainings!
So that's what all those buttons do, very interesting,

In the first steps you go through crucial systems. Throttle at zero, landing gear down, engine switch normal,. But why wipers off? Out of all other systems to check we are very concerned about the wipers.

Ever notice how every cockpit control, in every plane, always looks beat up, dinged and damaged, unfinished and rough, like it has gone through a crash landing or two. The edges are always nicked-up, the paint flecked off here and there, control knobs always dirty and mungy, smudged; the paint always worn, chipped, etc. Very "used" looking in general. Look at close-up at 7:56 for example. Why is that, do you suppose?

*UNDERSTANDING THE KNOBS MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE WHEN WE SEE PILOTS REACHING FOR THEM WE NOW HAVE MORE OF AN IDEA OF WHAT'S GOING ON.* *WE HAVEN'T SEEN ANYONE GO THROUGH THAT BEFORE, SO IT WAS VERY HELPFUL AND WE WILL NO DOUBT LOOK AGAIN...MUCH APPRECIATED SIR!*

What happens if you put the landing gear up while its on the ground ? Does the plane know not to put the wheels up or would it put them up anyway ?
E. Karvelas (1 month ago)
Chees everytime you have to check this buttons and enter all this flight data to the CPU? Quite complicated but I think for an Engineer to flight a Airbus would be a great hobby though I think as a Job would be quite interesting. (:

No wonder i have to be at the airport an hour and a half before the flight ! :P
TheAbyssalSamurai (1 month ago)
I have a massive runway with ILS and is somehow a recognized airport on the MCDU, because of this video it was a breeze getting it out, i watched some other video about the other stages of the flight, when I reached Heathrow the ATC where saying lot's of things to me that i didn't understand, once I got out of the plane using the emergency side window rope I was escorted by the police, which I thought was very kind.

Check to be sure the landing gear is down...WTF? It's on the ground. If the landing gear is not down then the plane probably crashed and you wouldn't be climbing aboard to fly it anyway.

teleman07 (1 month ago)
can someone eli5 why all these things cant be automated? because the human factor in doing all these things is actually scary. not because it is hard, but because it seems a simple mistake can lead to very bad things.. it feels like driving a car where all sensors and engine conrols have their own switches, knobs, lights etc.

Felix Rauch Valenti (1 month ago)
Why does "no light" mean "all good"? What if the light is broken? I'd have expected each indicator to have a "faul" and "all good" light or something, so you could see when the light itself doesn't work.

Thanks for producing this video. Interesting to see how involved the starting procedure is for the A320. Checkout the cockpit instrumentation on the A350 Lufthansa Munich to Tokyo video.
Minimal switches and display panels.

Great video. Those negative comments must be from students who never used a glass cockpit. This is exactly what I did while flying the Honeywell Primus 2000 flight deck. Those push buttons have 4 tiny bulbs in them and dark means all is OK. If a system was inop or turned off the button would be illuminated. Our simulators cost over a million US dollars so I didn't have one in my backyard.

I have two questions. 1. Why didn't you plug in alignment sooner due to it taking about 20 mins to align. 2. On shutdown do you have to dim all contrast and light switches all the way down like they do in the military? I.e, all switches from bright to dim.

shouldn't you push back first before starting the engines?
