Hi

@ rudderrudderrat & Clandestino, re:
The effectiveness of fly-by-wire architecture, and the existence of control laws, eliminate the need for upset recovery maneuvers to be trained on protected Airbus aircraft.
(my bold)
In Alternate (or Direct) law, an A320 (or other FBW Airbus) is no more a protected aircraft.

I admit this is a bit far fetched... and would prefer this sentence to be removed or, at last, better explained.

AFAIK, no such sentence is in the A330/A340 FCTMs
