Hi. When I'm programming the fms and I make an error, is there a way I can clear what I've already put in and start over with a new start?I've tryed everything.........shut fs9 down etc and the fms still carries the info I put in. I've worked on it 6 hrs today and got nowhere. I found out that the tuturial I was working on has errors.Tim Diamond

hello TimWhat data are you entering by mistake ?Be aware that some data is already entered in the FMS when the aircraft is loaded into the sim and cannot be deleted , most other user entered data can be deleted by pressing the CLR key and then selecting the Lselect key next to the data to be deleted.I have just reinstalled the 330 and fully programmed the FMS then shut down the flight and reloaded the 330, All data that i entered was gone.I will reinstall the 320 and check that one later today.

Hello :)Follow the tutorials available on the PSS site. Once you are familiar with the procedure you will not make mistakes with the A320 :)

Tim,Have patience. You cannot expect Rob to be available 24/7 and, as with your Dash problems, you will get help. In the meantime, as above, have another look at the tutorials etc.John R

Welllll. I been working on starting up A320. Both batteries read 27 each. Generators 1&2 show fault. Pack1 & 2 show fault. I have APU On Start shows available. Engines 1 or 2 won't start. I even got fedup earlier and changed the baron to running. I go back to 320, it's not running. I'm kinda lost. What am I doing wrong??:-)

everything about an airbus is automatic in 'normal' operation.confirm APU bleed is on (overhead panel between the engine pack buttons) after APU has started and showing 'AVAIL'.--

Ok. Fault lights still on pack 1&2. everything else ok except why can't I start the engines from eng start on the overhead. When I go to pedistool I can start them from there but the pack default lights are still on,on the overhead.I think I'm getting close. Sori to be such a pest.Will you plse be kind enuf to outline for me the steps from startup cold and dark. I'll get this yet. I'm not sure what you mean by "normal" operation.Your help will be most appreciated.P.S. APU bleed is on

Double check that you have the fuel valves on. I struggled for a while once and then realized the fuel valves were off. Scott

Looking at the overhead screenie I would say that APU bleed valve is on 'auto' instead of APU bleed valve on 'open'.Don't know if it makes any differece though.

see the 'APU bleed' light being ON.see the 'x-bleed' valve in AUTO. this is so the air moves across both systems depending on demand.--

That looks great "D".........Just a couple things so I understand.>top panel What are the engine starts for there?>bottom panel.... I set to ignition startWhich engine do I start first? And when I get engines going does Switch move automatically to "norm mode?"(just wondering)>it's important to me to Know which engine to start first. seems somewhere in manual it said #2 first."correct?)Now I got to find external lighting system switches.hintMr "D"............You have helped me a great deal.Thank you:-)

>>top panel What are the engine starts for there?situations exist where a manual start are necessary ... these are RARE. i'll leave it to any real pilots on the forum to describe these situations.>>Which engine do I start first? each airlines has a SOP. i've heard, and flown on, airlines that start #1 first (allowing last minute baggage to be loaded). others start #2 first.>>And when I get engines going does Switch move automatically to "norm mode?"(just wondering)no. 'normal' procedure is to put the engine start switch in 'norm' after start and during taxi. prior to takeoff more to 'IGN'. back to 'norm' in climb (during 'after T/O checklist') weather depending. maybe 'IGN' during descent (weather depanding). then 'IGN' during final approach. and then 'norm' after landing/taxi.look for a 'abus checklist' in avsim's library. also check out -http://www.smartcockpit.com/plane/airbus/A320/from your comments you are thinking 'boeing'. you must forget MUCH to fly an Abus.--
