Loss of Braking

- If AUTOBRAKE is selected:
- BRAKE PEDALS - PRESS
Note: This action will override the autobrake function.
- If no braking is available:
- THRUST LEVERS - MAX REVERSE
- BRAKE PEDALS - RELEASE
- A/SKID & N/W STRG - OFF
- BRAKE PEDALS - PRESS
Note: Apply pressure with care since initial pedal force produces more braking action in alternate mode than in normal mode.
- MAX BRK PRESS - 1000 PSI
Note: Monitor brake pressure on the BRAKES PRESS indicator. At low ground speed, adjust brake pressure as required.
- If still no braking:
- PARKING BRAKE - ON
Note: Use short successive parking brake applications to stop the aircraft. If possible, delay the use of the parking brake until low speed, to reduce the risk of tire burst and lateral control problems.

Crew Incapacitation

"NO 1 CODE BRAVO CODE BRAVO” 

The cabin attendant must then:

Tighten and manually lock the shoulder harness of the incapacitated crew member; Push the seat completely aft; Recline the seat back. Request assistance from any medically qualified passenger.

Check if a type qualified company pilot is on board to replace the incapacitated crew member.

Stall Recovery

1. NOSE DOWN PITCH CONTROL………………………. APPLY
(Note: In case of lack of pitch authority, reducing thrust my be required)
2. BANK…………………………… WINGS LEVEL

When out of stall:

THRUST……………………… APPLY SMOOTHLY AS REQD
SPEEDBRAKES……………… CHECK RETRACTED
FLIGHT PATH...……………… RECOVER
If in clean config and below 20,000'
FLAP1………………………… SELECT

9

Stall Warning at Lift-Off

THRUST............................. TOGA

At the same time:

PITCH ATTITUDE...............…15°

BANK....................................WINGS LEVEL

Note: When a safe flight path and speed are achieved and maintained, if stall warning continues, consider it as spurious. 

10

Windshear

BEFORE V1

The takeoff should only be rejected if unacceptable airspeed variations occur below the indicated V1, and the pilot decides that there is sufficient runway remaining to stop the aircraft.

AFTER V1

THR LEVERS............…TOGA

REACHING VR..............ROTATE

SRS ORDERS........................FOLLOW

This includes the use of full backstick, if demanded.

Note: 1. If engaged, the autopilot disengages when α is greater than α prot.
2. If the FD bars are not available, use an initial pitch attitude up to 17.5 ° with full backstick, if necessary. If needed, to minimize the loss of height, increase this pitch attitude. 


AIRBORNE, CLIMB OR APPROACH

THR LEVERS TOGA....................SET OR CONFIRM

AP (if engaged).....................….KEEP

SRS ORDERS.........................FOLLOW This includes the use of full backstick, if demanded.

Note: 1. If engaged, the autopilot disengages when α is greater than α prot.
2. If the FD bars are not available, use an initial pitch attitude up to 17.5 ° with fullbackstick, if necessary. If needed, to minimize the loss of height, increase this pitch attitude.

DO NOT CHANGE CONFIGURATION (SLATS/FLAPS, GEAR) UNTIL OUT OF SHEAR. CLOSELY MONITOR FLIGHT PATH AND SPEED.
RECOVER SMOOTHLY TO NORMAL CLIMB OUT OF SHEAR. 

11

Windshear Ahead

DURING TAKEOFF RUN………………… REJECT TAKEOFF
---
When Airborne
THR LEVERS....................TOGA
As usual, the slat/flap configuration can be changed, provided the windshear is not entered.
SRS ORDERS................... FOLLOW

This includes the use of full backstick, if required.

Associated with an aural synthetic voice “GO AROUND, WINDSHEAR AHEAD”

GO-AROUND.............................PERFORM

This includes the use of full backstick, if required.

Note: 1. If engaged, the autopilot disengages when α is greater than α prot.
2. If the FD is not available, use a pitch initial attitude up to 17.5 °. If necessary tominimize the loss of height, increase this pitch attitude.

Engine Failure During Cruise (Standard Strategy - to maximize the flight time while descending)

Engine Failure During Cruise (continued)
Standard Strategy
The goal is to maximize the flight time while descending to the engine out cruise altitude. This strategy applies when high terrain is not a factor.
MEMORY ITEMS for Standard Strategy
1.THRUST LEVERS. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . MCT
2.A/THR . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .OFF
3.CRUISE FL . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . DETERMINE and PULL
4.SPEED. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .PULL
5.ECAM ACTIONS. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . PERFORM
6.ATC . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .NOTIFY
The PF will perform the following driftdown procedure:
•Set Max Continuous Thrust (MCT) on operable engine.
•Disconnect A/THR.
•Pull to select present speed.
•Determine Cruise FL (REC MAX as displayed on PROG page). Set in FCU and PULL to initiate descent.
•Select a heading to keep clear of the airway, if appropriate.
•Order PM to perform ECAM actions.
•Notify ATC of intentions.
After descent is initiated:
•Select target speed (M.78 / 300) in the FCU.
Note:The speed target of M.78/300 knots is chosen to ensure the aircraft is within the stabilized windmill engine relight inflight envelope.
Caution:Do not decelerate below Green Dot.
•Determine Long Range Cruise altitude (refer to LRC Performance Charts). Set on the FCU and continue descent, unless ATC clearance indicates lower.
•Set the above altitude in the PROG page (L1 - CRZ Altitude).
When reaching Long Range Cruise altitude:
•Engage A/THR.
•Activate managed speed to Long Range Cruise speed (refer to LRC Performance Chart if data on PROG page is not available).
Note:One engine out ceiling information is also available in the QRM.
Standard Strategy (continued):
The REC MAX altitude provides a 0.3 G buffet margin. It is the altitude at which level flight can be maintained at engine-out long range cruise speed, with MCT set on the operating engine, anti-ice off, and the failed engine windmilling.
The driftdown altitude is often higher than the recommended maximum altitude because buffet margins are not provided at the driftdown altitude. For this reason, the flight crew should select a level-off altitude that is at or below the engine-out REC MAX altitude displayed on the PROG page

Engine Failure During Cruise (Obstacle Strategy - maximize the flight distance while descending)

Engine Failure During Cruise
Obstacle Strategy
The goal is to maximize the flight distance while descending to the engine out cruise altitude. This becomes especially critical in areas of high terrain.
MEMORY ITEMS for Obstacle Strategy

6.ATC . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .NOTIFY
The PF will perform the following driftdown procedure:
•Set Max Continuous Thrust (MCT) on operable engine.
•Disconnect A/THR.
•Select green dot speed in the FCU and maintain altitude while slowing to green dot.
•Set Cruise FL (Green Dot Level Off Altitude displayed on PERF CRZ page or from Single Engine Gross Flight Path Descent Chart) in the FCU and pull for OP DES 3-5 kts prior to green dot.
•Select a heading to keep clear of the airway, if appropriate.
•Order PM to perform ECAM actions.
•Notify ATC of intentions.
After descent is initiated:
•Maintain green dot and MCT.
•Periodically adjust FCU speed to maintain green dot.
•If V/S becomes less than 500 fpm, select V/S mode.
When reaching green dot level off altitude and terrain is not a factor:
•Set Long Range Cruise altitude on the FCU and PULL for OP DES (refer to LRC Performance Charts), unless ATC clearance indicates lower.
•Set the above altitude in the PROG page (L1 - CRZ Altitude).
When reaching Long Range Cruise Altitude:
•Engage A/THR.
•Activate managed speed and accelerate to Long Range Cruise speed (refer to Long Range Cruise Performance chart if data on PROG page is not available).
Note:One engine out ceiling information is also available in the QRM

Engine Failure: ABOVE acceleration altitude and above thrust reduction altitude

1) Leave autopilot in
2) Thrust leavers to MCT (it will say THR MCT on FMA) (Going to TOGA would engage SRS/GA TRK)
3) Check climb gradient
If sid requires climb gradient of more than 2.5% (denoted by having a minimum climb gradient on there (if below 2.5% required then gradient not mentioned on SID), then carry out a turn to best area for terrain avoidance. Do not continue the SID.

15

Engine Failure: ABOVE thrust reduction altitude but BELOW acceleration altitude

1) Leave autopilot in
2) Thrust leavers to TOGA (it will say THR MCT on FMA, but as below accel it will still be in SRS mode)
3) Check climb gradient
If SID requires climb gradient of more than 2.5% (denoted by having a minimum climb gradient on there (if below 2.5% required then gradient not mentioned on SID), then carry out a turn to best area for terrain avoidance. Do not continue the SID.
