The FADEC is linked with the throttle levers. .When taxiing. The 5 modes are: . This will apply full brake pressure automatically in case of a rejected take-off. except the V/S which is adjusted by clicking above or below the V/S rotating button.IDLE: power applied is idle. and a “UNLK” message in red means the gear is unlocked (in transition. you will hear a sound each time a throttle lever moves into one of them. it is coupled with the auto-throttle management.REV: reverse mode. You don’t have these detents on your throttle device (if you have one). going up or down). but it is there… It is designed to help the pilot by providing the right engine thrust according to the flight conditions. apply a little thrust by pushing the throttle lever. A green arrow means the gear is down and locked. and taxi on idle should be possible as soon as the aircraft begins to move (if it is not too heavy).When starting the engines. When nothing is displayed. to be used only when the aircraft is on ground. .O auto-brake button lets you select the take-off auto-brake. The T. Landing Gear & Auto-Brake The landing gear indicator shows the current status of the landing gears. and the auto-throttle management is automatically disarmed if it was armed.TO/GA: full power applied (to be used for take-off. go-around or emergency situations) . In addition. there are 5 detents in which the levers are supposed to move to engage 5 throttle modes.FLEX/MCT: flex power applied for reduced-thrust take-off (good weather conditions and long runway). Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) This system is not visible in the panel. it means the gear is retracted. . 8. 9. set to IDLE. In fact.Note: All the values can be changed by clicking on the left or on the right of a rotating button. . . so in order to simulate these detents. This is especially useful to retard the engine just before touchdown (at 50 feet AGL).CLB: climb thrust applied. when you move the throttle levers. in the Airbus aircraft. The FADEC is designed to be used this way: .
in the detent that corresponds to the desired mode. A/THR is then disengaged and thrust power is reduced to idle. It is set by moving the throttle levers in the corresponding position.The ADIRS that show the IRS coordinates . As soon as this is done. indicating the throttle levers should be moved to the CLIB detent. the “LVR CLB” message flashes on the PFD. Note: Remember that on Airbus aircraft. A/THR mode automatically engages and “A/THR” appears in blue on the PFD. the A/THR mode is armed (not engaged). As soon as FLEX or TO/GA mode is engaged. pull again to engage reverse thrust if necessary. 4.The Fuel panel controls the fuel pumps . The “A/THR” message appears in white on the PFD. When the reduction altitude is reached (configurable in the FMGC). fully reduce power to the IDLE detent. The throttle levers should remain in this position during the whole climb. Overhead Usage The overhead panel includes: . the cruise and the descent. depending on the aircraft weight. When the wheels are on the ground. “CLB” then appears on the PFD. Pull the throttles until you hear the CLIMB detent. Just before touchdown (between 50 and 100 ft AGL).- - - - For take-off. the throttle mode is not set by a set of pushbuttons (like on the Boeings). and the FADEC will adjust the thrust to maintain the speed selected on the FCU. you decide if you use FLEX power or full TO/GA power. weather conditions and runway length.
