    Congratulations Captain on your promotion to Category 4 and welcome to the Airbus Industries A330-200. The following information is based on Airbus source

    documentation, realworld pilot training guides, and reference material based on the

    Flightcraft™ A330-200 when used with the Eric Marciano Airbus 330 panel. This setup

     provides for a very realistic setup for freeware A330 operations.

    Due to the limitations of Microsoft Flight Simulator version 9 in simulating advanced

    transport category aircraft, this manual will provide only a basic guide to the systems in the A330. In some cases we will go deeper into the systems than the simulation will

    allow for giving our pilots a general understanding of A330 operations. In other cases we will completely ignore systems. It is hoped that we will provide the right amount of information for your tastes. While attention to detail was maintained the author did not

    have access to a real A330 FCOM. Thus information was based on the best available data

    that could be mined off the internet and available for free.

    One of the first things you will notice about the A330 is its dedication and redundancy to

    automatic flight systems. The aircraft has fully integrated systems of FADEC and

    computerized flight controls. They are mixed through multiple computers to provide  predictive flight path optimization. The reality is even with Eric’s excellent panel this is

    much more than FS9 is capable of simulating. Manual flight is a rarity in this airplane.

    Managing the multitude of systems is the Captains primary job.

    It is ashamed that this must be stated as any real world pilot will quickly identify that

    this is not a FOM for use in the real airplane, however for those few who are still abound: This Documentation is NOT FOR USE IN A REAL AIRCRAFT. If you are an

    operator of an A330 please stop now and refer to Airbus or your Airline specific

     published information. This document is NOT meant to supplement real world

    documentation and is for hobby use only.

    While much of this information has been taken from other sources, a bibliography of

    such is at the end of this document; the arrangement, notes, look and feel of this

    Aircraft Systems

    This section describes the aircraft systems emergencies that may reasonably be expected to occur and presents the procedures to be followed. Emergency procedures are given in

    checklist form when applicable. A condensed version of these procedures is in the

    Operator's and Crewmember's Checklist, Emergency operations of avionics equipment

    are covered when appropriate in Section 9 and are repeated in this section only as safety of flight is affected.

    Immediate Action Emergency Checks

    Immediate action emergency items are underlined for your reference and shall be committed to memory. During an emergency, the checklist will be called for to verify the memory steps performed and to assist in completing any additional emergency



    The urgency of certain emergencies requires immediate action by the pilot. The most

    important single consideration is aircraft control. All procedures are subordinate to this

    requirement. Reset MASTER CAUTION after each malfunction to allow systems to respond to subsequent malfunctions.

    Definition of Landing Terms

    The term LANDING IMMEDIATELY is defined as executing a landing without delay.

    (The primary consideration is to assure the survival of occupants.) The term LAND AS SOON AS POSSIBLE is defined as executing a landing to the nearest suitable landing

    area without delay. The term LAND AS SOON AS PRACTICABLE is defined as

    executing a landing to the nearest suitable airfield.

    Emergency Entrance

    The A330-200 is equipped with three pairs of Type A (full size door) emergency exits

    with inflatable emergency exit slides and one Type I (over wing) exit also equipped withan emergency slide. The hatches may be released by pulling on its flush-mounted, pull-

    out handle, placarded EMERGENCY EXIT-PULL HANDLE TO RELEASE. The hatches are of the hinged swing door type. After the latches are released, the hatch may

     be pulled out.
