Something for you 'bus junkies

Recommended Posts

This may have been posted already, but just in case:http://www.airbusdriver.net/This site is a really interesting insight into flying the A32X series, it is focussed on helping line pilots deal with type conversion and checkrides, but also has some interesting tidbits of a triva nature.Eg: "When you have multiple unrelated discrepancies throughout the aircraft, turn the aircraft off for 30 seconds and then back on. This means electrically cold, batteries off. You'll be amazed at how a reboot fixes things. >>NOT RECOMMENDED DURING FLIGHT<< (This works with your personal life too)." "Insert the end of a 10 foot length of toilet paper into the bottom of the lavatory toilet, then flush. Gone in 1.127 seconds. Some first class toilets can eat a length of paper pulled to the coach forward bulkhead.":-lolAnyway, just thought some of you might like to start learning a bit more about the Airbus that is coming our way...

The reason that turning off the whole aircraft works opposed to pilots pulling CB's is that it gives the proper time/sequence for the computer to run through the BITE's before coming online. When *most* pilots cycle the CB's they just don't wait enough time for the computer to reboot/BITE. They then call engineering...The aircraft doesn't like cold mornings, but if you get to them early and warm them up before the crew get onboard and start declaring the thing broken :(
