Autothrust Mode Annunciations

Flight Mode Annunciator Columns (Interactive)

Description

This will display the autothrust modes that are armed or active, as well as a request for the pilot to do something.


MAN TOGA

Displayed with white text surrounded by a white box. This is displayed when Autothrust is armed and at least one thrust lever is in the TO/GA detent.

MAN FLX XX

Displayed with white text surrounded by a white box. The numbers are blue. Displayed when Autothrust is armed and at least one thrust lever is in the MCT/FLX detent and the other is at or below this detent. The FLX TO temp will be displayed as XX in blue.

MAN MCT

Displayed with white text surrounded by a white box. Displayed when at least one thrust lever is in the MCT/FLX detent and the other is at or below this detent. MCT is maximum continuous thrust and is the maximum thrust the engine can be set to for an extended period of time.

MAN THR

Displayed with white text in an amber box. Displayed when Autothrust is armed, and the most forward thrust lever is above the climb detent (2 engines operative or one above FLX/MCT with one engine out) and not in a detent.

THR MCT

Displayed with green text. Displayed when Autothrust is active in thrust mode, and the most forward lever is in the MCT/FLX detent (engine out)

THR CLB

Displayed with green text. Displayed when the Autothrust is active in thrust mode, and the most forward thrust lever is in the climb detent.

THR IDLE

Displayed with green text. Displayed when Autothrust is active in thrust mode and commands idle thrust.

THR LVR

Displayed with green text. Displayed when autothrust is active in thrust mode with both thrust levers below the climb detent or below MCT/FLX (one engine).

SPEED or MACH

Displayed with green text. Displayed when Autothrust is active in SPEED or MACH mode.

A. FLOOR

Displayed with green text in an amber box. Displayed when Autothrust is active and commands TO/GA thrust, while A. Floor conditions are met.

TOGA LK

Displayed with green text in an amber box. Displayed when Autothrust is active and TO/GA thrust is locked while A. Floor conditions are no longer met.

LVR CLB (Flashing)

Displayed with white text. Displayed when the pilots are being requested to set the thrust levers in the climb detent.

LVR MCT (Flashing)

Displayed in white text. Displayed when the pilots are being requested to set the live thrust lever to the MCT/FLX detent.

LVR ASYM

Displayed in amber text. Displayed when one thrust lever is in the climb or MCT/FLX detent and the other one is not. (2 engines only).

THR LK (Flashing)

Displayed in amber text. Displayed after autothrust disconnection (either pilot action on FCU or failure) resulting in thrust being frozen. Both thrust levers being in climb detent or one in MCT/FLX with one engine out.

Note for 3rd line

The caution light flashes and a single chime will sound every five seconds, if the pilot takes no action in the following circumstances:

  • THR LK.
  • LVR CLB (If the thrust levers are below the climb detent).
  • LVR MCT ( If the thrust levers are below the FLX/MCT detent).
