feelthere airbus vol 1 auto throttle

Recommended Posts

I've just had a flight in the A319 and was forced to use manual speed. Everytime I switched to managed speed it was stuck on V2, about 137 knots. The climb page was programmed for 310 knots, and cruise at .80 mach. what could have gone wrong. After 100+ hrs. on the Airbus, this is a first.Edit...I've also noticed that there is no "Arm Approach" promt on the DES page. I'ts as if the MCDU is still in takeoff mode.Dave FisherCYYZP4 Prescott 3.2e 478p 800mhz 1mg CPUP4P800SE Asus Motherboard2.5 gig PC3200 DDR RAM 400MHZGeForce 7600GT/512 OC'dMaxtor 80 Gig ATA 133 HD x2WDC WD800 80 Gig HDAntec 500watt true powerSharp 19 inch LCD MonitorSaitek AV8R-01 Joystickhttp://fs2crew.com/linepilot.jpg

This happened to me on Vol 2 twice. I apparently didnt move the throttle to the right point where the autothrottle light turned on. I have made sure to always see the light come on before I lift off. I really hope a less "buggy" Airbus series comes out eventually. I can fly the Wilco versions but they require alot of effort unlike the 737, 747, and 747 of the often mentioned developers. Off my soapbox.

dave:both of your concerns have been discussed in the feelthere forums.your thrust issue very likely relates to not putting the throttles in the correct gates for TO and climb.the MCDU does have the prompt to force the aircraft into approach mode - it is in the performance pages. you being 'stuck' relates to above.all your questions can be posted on this forum -http://www.iemit.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=27i also encourage you to search this forum for answers -http://www.iemit.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=26--

I'm pretty sure I moved the throttles back at thrust reduction alt. No doubt, I scr**ed something up. I've got a lot of hours on the Airbus, but it was late and fatigue was stetting in.Dave F.
