I found this video very useful because I'm sick and tired of pilots leaving A320s in my back yard. The next one that lands is going to get flown to the Mojave desert and sold for cash.

Love the video, instructions are pretty clear and precise.

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?

Aeroplane control design need to be simpilified (a) a big Master Switch for things to be switched on (b) status of inert electrical things; and have some way that an error comes on only when there's a problem - otherwise run quietly in the background as soon as master switch is on, with a Progress Bar showing when ready.

Great video, Pranas is a good instructor. It isn't that intimidating when you understand what the panels do and why there are so many checklists and procedures. I couldn't help but think though - he sounds like Steve Martin's character on SNL back in the seventies == see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGv6uo89yMY

When do you shut down the APU?
Michael Bevan (1 month ago)
His flow sequence for lighting up a cold and dark aircraft is wrong. He should have started with the parking brake (in case the aircraft had been towed onto stand from another location) and worked forward. In fact, walking into the cockpit, his first act would be to look left behind the captain's seat, to check that the undercarriage locks are in their holder. He's used to not doing that because he's in a sim and not a real aircraft. He should also have included the radar, as has been pointed out earlier, and the transponder switch (standby or off). When starting the APU, he shouldn't select the start switch immediately after the APU master is pushed, to allow time for the APU air inlet to open and to see a "Flap open" caption on the ECAM. Also, he has to check that the Ditching switch is ON to open the ditching panel, which is often closed deliberately to allow the aircraft to be deiced. It takes about two minutes to start up from cold, as the APU takes just over a minute to get to full power and full generation. What he also forgot is that the start up sequence also includes the couple of minutes it takes for the entire lighting test in the cabin to conclude, which of course, matters to the rest of the crew and the engineers. that's what fooling around with Sims does for you; you forget the rest of the aeroplane.

Actually pushback is done Before starting the engines and the request to make engine start is not done with ATC by rather with the all Clear from the pushback team so that they can leave the area safely ... ONe of the safety conditions is that of course pushback Can Not be done with engines started ... if that was the case there would be no need for pushback trucks, pilot would simply engage reverse thrust and the airplane would move by it's own. (making a all of of noise on the terminal floor that is :) ATC request to departure procedures and start the taxing operation is done Way before engines are started ... after that request is accepted then taxing can begin with the instruction conducted by the ATC.

1 question: What happens if you accidently, while on the ground, pull the landing gear lever up?
Fk67Lg (7 days ago)
+toddy2519 Smart move retiring now. Had you not done so, the next time when a landing gear is deployed while still on the ground, they would probably blame you for it. Just you wait and see.
AR M (1 month ago)
+toddy2519 Thank you very much. Good to know that it is a impossible task.
toddy2519 (1 month ago)
AR M, nothing would happen. Large, commercial aircraft have what's called a "squat" switch which is located on the gear leg, depressed, whenever the plane is sitting on the ground. When it's depressed by the weight of the aircraft the gear switch in the cockpit is disengaged. Once the plane lifts off the ground the gear leg extends downward slightly and the squat switch is disengaged, control returns to the cockpit. There have been incidents where smaller general aviation aircraft pilots have accidentally put the gear lever in the "up" position when on the ground that resulted in gear retraction, usually after landing, during taxiing. Most likely the pilot hit the gear switch instead of the flap switch. Flaps are normally retracted after landing to put the full weight of the aircraft on the ground. Retracting the gear on the ground makes taxiing a bit difficult and generally frowned upon by the aircraft owner as well as the tower! I don't know how those particular aircraft can retract their gear on the ground but it has happened, (possibly because the squat switch was damaged, defective, or was never a part of the aircraft retract system). As a licensed pilot and A&P, (aircraft mechanic) for a large commercial airline, I've never seen or heard of a retraction on the ground with any of our aircraft. (I'm retired now.)

Each battery outputs 28W. Interesting.
Star Gazer (21 days ago)
+Samuel Lourenço The batteries aren't "outputting" 28W. They are charging from the DC bus at 1A. The APU is carrying the load with 59A to the DC1 side, and 36A to the DC2 side. The batts are at 28V, the TR1 and TR2 are at 29V. The batteries aren't putting power onto the bus, they're float charging, as you'd expect with either the engines, apu, or external power available.
Samuel Lourenço (21 days ago)
+Star Gazer It is 28W indeed, as in power, not voltage. 28V times 1A equals 28W. Please, do the math.
Star Gazer (22 days ago)
28 Volts, not Watts.

Did not check rudder action or Flap action or settings  on take off  !!,,always check your flap position on the runway for take off.  never the less good insight to the starting procedure on the aircraft

Good but flawed. First, irs switch setting out of order; second, did not set lights;third pack settings missed; fourth, left apu on; fifth, engine start clearance from ground. No need for pushback, looks like he wasn't gated, just on apron. Wonder if pushback was edited out.
Matīss Jurģelis (2 months ago)
What a sequence. So to shut it down you just turn of engine switches and disengage batteries? Because on the startup you will set up everything anyway.
FlightSimmerAustralia (2 months ago)
mate, you don't need to ask ATC for engine start, you need to ask them for push back, but not engine start

You should have checked the hand brake right away instead of at 8 mins in. While you were messing with all those lights and switches you may have rolled forward and crushed a little old lady walking her dog.
