Airbus A320 Systems Study Guide and Switch Light Training Guide (Cockpit)

Purpose:

 

The purpose of this Aviation Information Services (AIS) LLC website is to help Airbus A320 pilots connect to the Red Triangle Productions (RTP) LLC company web site to enable the pilot to find the A320 training materials and study guides.  These superlative A320 CBT digital pilot handbooks are trademarked as Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides (VOSLG).  Every pilot assigned to fly the A320 will need to understand how all the cockpit lights and switches work, and how all the airplane systems operate.  Since 1999 Red Triangle Productions LLC has created the most unique and innovative switch-light guides and system study guides ever seen in aviation.  Pilots in over 500 airlines, companies, agencies, associations and governments around the world use these Airbus A320 training guides.  Some of these aviation organizations are:  all the legacy airlines, FAA, NASA, IATA, JAA, and all major international flag carriers.  Many flight schools use these A320 system training and cockpit panel study guides.  RTP specializes in creating downloads which use Information Mapping™ to facilitate easy assimilation of the required knowledge.  They are all immediately available at:

Knowledge makes you the Master of your Airbus A320!

 

These interactive A320 CBT (Computer Based Training) light-switch guides with hyperlinks to and from the associated Airbus A320 airplane system diagrams, schematics and synoptics, provide all the necessary information for successful pilot training in an A320 initial ground school, Airbus A320 recurrent training, A320 simulator and A320 Type Ratings.  Go to You Tube, www.youtube.com and type in “rtpllc” to see videos of how the downloads work.

 

Easily learn your A320 Aircraft with Confidence!

The A320 series has two variants, the A320-100 and A320-200.  Only 21 A320-100s were ever produced.  These aircraft, the first to be manufactured, have been flown only by Air France and British Airways.  The A320-200 features wingtip fences and increased fuel capacity resulting in increased range.  Other differences are minimal. Indian Airlines used their first 31 A320-200s with a double-bogie main landing gear for airfields with poor runway conditions.  Typical range with 150 passengers for the A320-200 is about 3,300 nautical miles (6,150 km).  It is powered by two CFMI CFM56-5s or IAE V2500s with thrust ratings between 113 to 120 kN (25,400 to 27,000 lb).  A total of 2,860 of the A320 model have been delivered, with 2,752 still on order.

At the bottom of this page is a list of all the Airbus A320 contents in the A320 Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides™ (VOSLG).

 

“If you can move a mouse, you will Master your Airbus A320!”

 

The A320 VOSLG flows in the pattern of the typical FAA (JAA) Oral Exam that follows an initial ground school and Type Rating.  We only teach what is essential.  We spoon feed you only the necessary stuff.  We don’t explain how the A320 lavatory flushes the water.  A320 FAA Orals usually don’t ask about Flight Attendant galley fixtures.  We don’t want you to have to “unmemorize” anything, either.  Every airline has their own set of A320 checklist flows, policies, procedures, & memory items – we don’t teach it and wouldn’t be able to stay up with the changes. 

 

The Airbus A320 - Presented from the Pilot’s Perspective!!

 

The Airbus A320 interactive downloads are created for the pilot in the cockpit, not in the classroom.  We show you how to command and master the A320. 

 

Learn the A320 like you will fly it.

 

The VOSLGs were created using the Information Mapping™ technical writing style.  And they are in COLOR.  This is so much better than black and white pilot handbooks, ground school documents, and flight school aircraft operating manuals.  Many ground schools use old photocopied manuals passed down from and through several faded editions.  The VOSLG greatly eases and facilitates the learning and understanding of the large volume of data and information the pilot must master… and you will Master it. 

 

Why is the company called Red Triangle Productions???

 

Near every A320 item is a RED TRIANGLE.  There is no need to even click on an item.  Just put your mouse near the RED TRIANGLE and a pop-up appears explaining why the light illuminates (in COLOR) and the switch’s function.

 

Hyperlinked and interconnected – Presented as you will need to Use the A320!!

 

Many training departments use lengthy modular slides shows, some with voice-overs and recordings that cannot be silenced nor allow fast forwarding.  And you cannot just go back any specific item without going through the modules and subsets of chapters.  Not so in the VOSLGs:  everything is about one or two clicks away.  And all the data is repeated in every related place.  To the LEFT of a cockpit switch panel are the pop-ups explaining those associated aircraft systems.  To the RIGHT of the panel are hyperlinks to the respective diagrams and schematics.  The A320 System descriptions are repeated everywhere so you do not have to hunt for the information you need.  Everything where you might logically think to find and want it!!  Hyperlinks are everywhere & to anywhere.  Everything that is related is connected:  between panels, diagrams & schematics, and synoptics.  All data is interlaced.  No more searching for that single sentence about a critical item of knowledge.  All the Information is Mapped.

 

Every A320 pilot must have useful Mental Maps of the Systems.

 

The upper left corner of every sheet has a direct link to the Table of Contents (TOC).  Everything is available at the TOC.  But when in the cockpit areas, to get to a System, just to the right of the cockpit panel, are the associated hyperlinks to the respective diagrams and schematics.  In many of the Systems we illustrate numerous situations.  We show all known Normal, Abnormal, Non-normal and Emergency configurations in all the critical Systems such as Air Conditioning & Pressurization, Brakes, Electrical, Hydraulics, Flight Controls, Fuel, etc.  A picture is worth a thousand words.

 

And you can go in reverse.  Thus, from any diagram and schematic there are reverse links to any and all related cockpit switch panels and synoptic displays.  Everything is in COLOR, too!

 

Airbus A320 ECAM Actions:

 

RTP has even included actual ECAM Actions in the Airbus downloads!  These are functional examples of the ECAM procedures and methods to resolve A320 Abnormal, Non-normal and Emergency situations.  Some of the major aircraft systems; Electrical, Hydraulic, Fuel and others include ECAM Actions and instructions so you will understand from day how to perform in the simulator.

 

Prepare early!  Command the material!  Be Relaxed & Confident!

 

In fact, one Testimonial says:  "I'm in the middle of my little bus Initial at US Air and the three weeks I studied with your program before I went to school made all the difference in the world....  I'm home on the breaks relaxing while my 3 other classmates are still in CLT banging their heads.  Thanks for a great program!" -- C. H.

Eliminate Stress – Know that You will Succeed!!


Each VOSLG© is made by an Airbus instructor pilot.  We type every letter and draw every line!  We do not copy and paste manufacturer’s production manuals.  We tear apart the paragraphs and sentences and use Information Mapping™ to reassemble the data to you can learn it by reading it just once.  Ground school and initial training, recurrent training and Type Ratings are stressful.  We remove all the unnecessary pressure.

 

We know what you Need – and NO computer skills are necessary!!

 

We are pilots - we know what you need.  Slide rule engineers with pocket-protectors are reluctantly forced at some point in production to write down “how it works” for you, the A320 pilot, who will need to fly it.  They might understand a bunch of Greek symbols on their calculators and have memorized the tenth digit of π, but they make a mess of it telling you, “the switch on the panel switches on the pump and the light is on when the pump is off unless you turned the pump off, or had a switch fault, or an over temperature and/or under pressure pump condition(s) that existed at the time a transfer of power interrupted the automatic shut down of the pump through the alternate command override except on <insert some tail numbers here> when greater than -40°C and not in ground effect.”  And they throw in a bunch of acronyms derived from a translation of a foreign language with a different alphabet.  These mysteries you might find (maybe) in various chapters, or in front of the manual, or after the index, or anywhere, or nowhere.  Now you’re confused.  Suddenly, you’re half way through ground school and you were hoping to catch up on yesterday’s confusing material, and complete that reading assignment from two days ago, and complete tomorrow’s chapters….  We know the feeling.  We put all the Acronyms in one easy place, and always identify them up front and first in the pop-ups.

 

Information Mapping™ teaches data at several level of learning simultaneously.  We use literary techniques and presentation methods that facilitate understanding in the conscious and subconscious.

 

Detail, Clarity, Concise,

A320 Differences, Options, Free Extras!!

 

Speaking of Differences – we clearly point out all DIFFERENCES so you clearly see and understand them – just like NOTES, CAUTIONS and WARNINGS!  We also include as many of the airline Options for the aircraft as we can learn about.  The website has many Free Extras sent to us by pilots, and we are always looking to add more.  If you have any A320 tips, tricks or techniques, A320 grounds school or A320 simulator training notes, or “there I was” stories, etc., then share them with us!  We have are always ready to pass on helpful A320 information!

 

Maintain Aircraft Control – and over your career knowledge:  It is only a Mouse Click away!

 

We made these A320 Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides™ to operate on any computer. No special memory, or speeds, or processor, or any other attributes are required by your PC or laptop.  Even the computers of the last Century with Windows 3.1 OS and Microsoft Office 1995 can handle them.  MAC users can use Apple Office 11, or Parallels, or other Windows emulating programs.
