A310/300 Panel Help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just downloaded the latest Airbus A300/310 panel and it looks great. However is there anyone that can explain a quick way to get the whole thing going with engines and electronic going in a step by step instructions? I read the PDF manual but it does not tell you how to crank everything up.Thanks,Bill

Me too!! I've had problems with there being no power on the panel and none of the switches working. It's a shame, as I'd really like to fly some freight in an A300!!Rob

Simon's previous panel included a step by step instruction for getting the engines started and what needs to be functioning for the AP to work. The switches in the new panel are slightly different, but the basic procedure is the same.

Hey Misha,Would you be kind enough to post these step by step instructions for Simon's panel here? Because that would be much more convenient for us, instead of having to download his previous panel just for those instructions. What do you think?? :)Cheers,

here u go - copied it from the old docs undermentioned - hope it points you in the right direction. Now I gotta get back to work! :)"First, we will esabilish electric power and start the APU:Press the three battery switches (labeled BAT 1,2,3) on the electrical panel. Now you'll see the cockpit come to life.To prepare the start of the APU open the APU fuel valve on the fuel panel (to the right of the electrical panel). The switch is among the three switches at the upper end of the fuel panel.Now turn on the APU master switch and then press the START button left of the master switch.Wait until the green AVAIL light comes on, then press the APU GEN switch on the electrical panel.Now we will bring the airconditioning and the bleed air system online.Press all switches labeled with a white OFF on the bleed air panel (the panels on the right).Next flip the APU BLEED switch (the lowest switch on the bleed panel) ON. You should see the air pressure rise on the pressure indicator.Now we need to prepare the hydraulics.There are three guarded switches on top of the hydraulic panel. Open the guards by clicking above them and then press all three switches. The white OFF will disappear.Then close the guards again.Now flip the four large white switches below the electrical panel to the top.You also need to switch both PACKS off in order to have enough air pressure to start the engines. Press the two switches labeled PACK VALVE 1 / 2 on the bleed air panel. A white OFF should appear. We're almost ready to start the engines but without fuel they won't run. So press all buttons labeled with a white OFF on the fuel panel (the panel with the APU fuel valve switch). These switches are the fuel pump switches.Now we're ready to start the engines.Close the overhead and open the pedestal.You'll see the thrust levers and below them the engine fuel valves labeled ENG1 and ENG2. Move these switches to the lower position.Now open the overhead again and move the large round selector above the APU master switch to the START L position.Now press the button START1. You will hear the engine spool up. Then quickly close the overhead and monitor the N2 indication on the main panel. When N2 reaches 20 percent open the pedestal and move the fuel valve labeled ENG1 up.The left engine will start.Now repeat this for the right engine. The starter switch is labeled START2.Now flip the APU bleed valve switch to off and press the two engine generator switches (to the left and the right of the APU generator switch on the electrical panel). Next you should press the APU generator button and then press the four switches on the hydraulic panel which are still labeled OFF.Now you need to move the APU master switch to OFF again and the APU will shut down.You also should switch both packs on again.And you should switch pitot heat on, too. In order to do this you need to open the secondary overhead panel by clicking at the empty space above the fuel panel. New switches come up and you need to press (as usual) all switches labeled OFF.You can close the secondary overhead by clicking the empty space again. Congrats you just startet your Airbus A310 up."regards,Mark3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256=> 15fps mostmaxed

You can also just go to the overhead panel when you first start, don't do anything, then go back to the main panel and everything will be intitialized. You'll need to go back and start the airconditioning (not critical) but you will need turn on the pitch control from the overhead before the autopilot will work. billg
