best Airbus 320 study-app ?
 
Hello

Can someone point me towards the best Airbus 320 study app that is not specifically geared towards a certain airline or certain SOPs. I assume the high oil temperature light comes on for the same reason across all companies. So looking for something like that.

Thank you

I would recommend use before flight for sim preparation and looking at ECAMs.

Also ipad ECAM, but some Easyjet bias in some areas and system presentations.

Nothing beats the FCOM for brute understanding unless your airline has filleted it.

The FCOM and FCTM, best apps you will find.

Hi does anyone know if Use Before Flight is being updated/maintained? The app store says last update 2 years ago and the website also. I also tried to login and it failed? Has it been abandoned?

Thanks

Also sonicbum - thanks for the laugh :ok:

I've seen one of their videos. Good but not amazing. Some inaccuracies.

if you are using any third party information always cross reference it back to the FCOM / FCTM.

That's the best advice ever.

If I may add for the OP : always use manufacturer's and/or your company approved material and this will be more than enough to have an extensive knowledge of the aircraft. If You think on the amount of official Airbus data You can access through the web, mostly for free, there is for sure no need to invest in any sort of unofficial apps. I can add to that only one exception : you might find some very interesting booklets on the external walkaround that are based on data collected from maintenance documentation. That could be a nice to know with highly detailed colour pictures to extend Your knowledge and have a better understanding of what You're actually looking at during the exterior walkaround.

Airbus Safety First Magazines and Airbus WIN. My favorite after the obvious FCOM/FCTM.

The FCOM alone can be quite dry when studying aircraft systems for a new type rating.

I used Aerosim ETHOS together with the FCOM and FCTM during my A320 ground school and I would use it again.
