A319/A320/A321 TECHNICAL TRAINING MANUAL _ MECHANICS / ELECTRICS & AVIONICS COURSE 09 TOWING TOWING WITH THE NOSE GEAR FROM THE FRONT WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT THE GROUND SAFETY-LOCKS ARE IN POSITION ON THE LANDING GEAR. CAUTION: DO NOT TOW OR MOVE THE AIRCRAFT ON THE GROUND IF THE ENGINES COWLS ARE OPEN. UC64200 EFFECTIVITY EFFECTIVITY ALL 09-10-00 Page Page 2 2 Sep 30/98 . IF NOT THERE IS A RISK OF INJURY IF THE AIRCRAFT STOPS SUDDENLY.NO PERSONS GO WHERE THE AIRCRAFT CAN CAUSE THEM INJURY OR CAN KILL THEM. WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THE AIRCRAFT MOVES WITH ITS POWER ON THE GROUND: . THIS IS TO PREVENT HIGH LOADS WHICH CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE NOSE LANDING GEAR AND/OR THE AIRCRAFT STRUCTURE. TMUTOWA01-T01 LEVEL 2 CAUTION: SET AND CALIBRATE THE TOWING AND TURN SHEAR PINS BEFORE YOU TOW OR PUSH BACK THE AIRCRAFT.NO OBJECTS STAY WHERE THE ENGINES CAN BLOW THEM AWAY OR CAN PULL THEM INTO THE ENGINES BY SUCTION. . MAKE SURE THAT NO PERSONS SIT OR STAND ON THE TOW BAR OR USE THE TRACTOR AS TRANSPORT THIS IS TO PREVENT THE RISK OF INJURY. WARNING: THE PERSON WHO OPERATES THE BRAKES FROM THE COCKPIT DURING TOWING/TAXIING MUST HAVE HIS SIT BELT ATTACHED. PUSHBACK OR MOVEMENT OF THE AIRCRAFT. MAKE SURE THAT THE PATH OF THE AIRCRAFT IS CLEAR. MOVEMENT OF THE AIRCRAFT WITH THE COWLS OPEN CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE COWLS AND THE NACELLE STRUCTURE. WARNING: OBEY THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DURING TOWING.
A DAMPING SYSTEM . . an engine running.check on the Yellow brake-pressure triple-indicator that the accumulator pressure pointer is in the green range. Do not tow the aircraft if the dimension H is more than 300mm (11. Refer to your Aircraft Maintenance Manual for the calibration of these pins. . On the nose landing gear.8 in). the aircraft needs to be energized either using the APU. . the brakes pressure pointers go down.and check if the parking brake is on. make sure: . thus. We recommend pressurizing the yellow hydraulic system using the yellow electrical pump.at maximum ramp weight. make sure that the aircraft is stable. the "N.TWO CALIBRATED TURN SHEAR PINS. we have to install the towbar. install the towbar on the tow fitting and connect the towbar to the tractor. set the ground-towing control lever to the towing position and install the pin. On the Yellow brake-pressure triple-indicator.A CALIBRATED SHEAR PIN . THIS IS TO PREVENT HIGH LOADS CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE NOSE LANDING GEAR. CAUTION: PUT THE PARKING BRK CONTROL SWITCH IN THE OFF POSITION BEFORE YOU TOW OR PUSH BACK THE AIRCRAFT. let us suppose that the aircraft is already energized and the EIS Start Procedure done. the braking system will be more efficient and safer. Referring to your Aircraft Maintenance Manual. UC64200 TMUTOWA01-T01 LEVEL 2 EFFECTIVITY EFFECTIVITY ALL 09-10-00 Page Page 3 3 Sep 30/98 .

Outside.A319/A320/A321 TECHNICAL TRAINING MANUAL _ MECHANICS / ELECTRICS & AVIONICS COURSE 09 TOWING TOWING WITH THE NOSE GEAR FROM THE FRONT TOWING WITH THE NOSE GEAR FROM THE FRONT This film describes how to push the aircraft rearwards or tow the aircraft forwards with the nose gear. .on the upper ECAM page. If you do. The aircraft may be towed or pushed back: . Now. on the nose wheel steering deactivation electrical-box.with the engines shut down or running at idle.WHEEL STEERG DISC" message comes into view on the memo page. That being said. .the wheel chocks are in place. you can cause damage to the internal centering cams of the nose landing gear. Let us suppose that this procedure has been correctly performed. To begin the procedure. a specific ground cart. or using the tractor itself. CAUTION: MAKE SURE THAT THE TOW BAR HAS: . depending on the configuration you are in.that the safety devices are installed on the landing gears. In the cockpit.
a distance of 3 meters (10 ft) must be kept clear around the nose wheels.Reset the INTerior LighT DOME switch to OFF. Then.WHEEL STEERG DISC" disappears. on the Audio Control Panel. When you complete the towing operation. On the lighting system: . remove the safety pin and set the ground-towing control lever to the normal position.Cut the cockpit/control tower VHF link by pressing in the VHF pushbutton on the Radio Management Panel. be sure that all WARNINGS and CAUTIONS of your Aircraft Maintenance Manual procedure and previous precautions are applied.In order to communicate with the ground mechanics. . For safety reasons. On the nose wheel steering deactivation electrical-box.Set the EXTerior LighT NAVigation and LOGO switch to ON. On the VHF system: . the aircraft can be towed slowly and smoothly. on the ECAM MEMO display the message "N. Disconnect the tow bar from the nose gear fittings. and check that the PARKING BRAKE light is ON on the nose wheel steering deactivation electrical-box. When you use the front fittings to push the aircraft rearwards with engine at idle this angle is limited to 40 degrees. At this point. .A319/A320/A321 TECHNICAL TRAINING MANUAL _ MECHANICS / ELECTRICS & AVIONICS COURSE 09 TOWING TOWING WITH THE NOSE GEAR FROM THE FRONT TOWING WITH THE NOSE GEAR FROM THE FRONT (CONT’D) In the cockpit. make sure that the nose wheels are aligned with the aircraft centerline. Towing speed limitation depends on the position of the passenger/crew and cargo doors. release out the VHF pushbutton switch and select the control tower frequency on the Radio Management Panel. For these speed limitations refer to your Aircraft Maintenance Manual. Put the wheel chocks in position. set the EXTerior LighT BEACON switch to ON. On the communication system: . Depressurize the yellow hydraulic system. Two other persons have to monitor the wing tips during the towing operation and one person is required in the cockpit in order to operate the brakes.
