Asking what the memory items are is fair enough - we all need to know them and recall them at any time., so we must be able to recite them line by line if asked.

But as you say, pineteam; asking what the engine limitations are is no longer necessary, now that we have sophisticated displays that tell us, and ECAM that alerts us. One way to stop instructors doing this this is to find some obscure fact in the manuals, and innocently ask the instructor about it. Then see if they can answer.

I am still gobsmacked that the airlines of the OP did not mandate all the Airbus memory drills !! How on Earth would they have managed if a memory drill situation had arisen?

How is that possible??? You get a TCAS RA you are supposed to be like: Hang on! Let’s get the QRH first instead of flying the plane?! Lol. Surely you apply the memory items first then maybe check the QRH right? Memory items are procedures to be taken without any delay. I’m curious to know the logic behind it.
I know I am preaching to the choir but the catchall is in any non normal the first pilot action is to “Fly the aircraft.”

At our company, “Fly the aircraft” means to include the pilot is expected to take any actions necessary to stabilize the situation. Those actions could be memory items or not, doesn’t matter. Only then do we refer to QRH etc.

For the majority of these warnings you repeat what the aircraft has said to you and add TOGA.It is much more important to know what to do than try and memorise the cause.
