A333 Rat out??

Recommended Posts

Guest dogdog1985

During cruising at FL374, an orange message "RAT OUT" shown in the ECAMthen, the A/C seemed to lose power and the IAS started to decrease dramatically, then I pressed Ctrl+E..... seemed not work. Then I open the overhead panel, there were faults in the GENsI hadn't opened flaps, and hadn't touched a thing, enough fuel, and Battery life of 27.5VI started my flight with PSS A333, should it be a problem. Or should I start a flight with MS default and switch to PSS Airbus??BTW, how to start a flight with cold and dark..Thanks

RAT = Ram Air Turbine. This is a small turbine that is extended to generate power when there is a failure in the primary power source for the aircraft.As you mentioned; your generators failed (for some reason), which means there was no power; and the RAT was extended to provide emergency power.As to why it happened on the A333, I don't know. However, that's what the RAT is. It seems it came out under the correct conditions for the aircraft; however, as to WHY your generators failed; that I don't know (check failures and realism settings?)
