Hello, I fly the 320 for a major airline in the US. We use our own SOPs , and we have just one memory item ( O2 masks 100%). I understand that Airbus SOPs have about 7 memory items. Would anyone be kind enough to post them ?
The following procedures are to be applied without referring to paper : Windshear, windshear ahead, TCAS, EGPWS, loss of braking, immediate actions of EMER DESCENT, immediate actions of UNRELIABLE SPEED INDICATION/ADR CHECK PROC, CREW INCAPACITATION.
according to the unreliable speed indication: do you have to know the proper pitch angles for specific airspeeds and Grossweights or is just the technique to get a stable flightpath and to compare the flight data from the different ADRs a memory item?
Crew incapacitation actions are writen in the FCTM and the FCOM 3. (this for the airbus)
Basically, you have to take over pressing the red push botton on the side-stick 45seconds. Return to the safe flight and engage the A/P (your side).
Then, "purser to cockpit please" by the PA, ask her/him to fasten the seat belt and move the seat backwards (so as to not to interfere in the instruments or with the handling of the aircraft). In addition ask for any qualified pilot on board and a doctor.
Declare emergency,In the mean time, in the MCDU you have an option which is called closest airports, with the information of the four nearest airport around you (check on the maps/charts the suitable, runway length...).
If you don´t have the last weather report ask for it, request proceed to, priority, high speed, radar vectors..
Well, a good idea would be inform the passengers (I wouldn´t say the real problem at all..)
When approaching, inform to the ATC that you are going to stop the aircraft on the rwy and medical assistance is required(giving all the details about the incapacitated crew)
Prepare the approach and read the check list earlier than usual. Request radar vectoring and prefer a long approach to reduce work load.
if both are incapacitated,,,just pray or sing a song untill run out of fuel.
