Preface

Welcome on board of the Commercial Level
Simulations A330/A340-200/300 booklet.

This booklet contains everything needed to
fly one of these Airbus airplanes, but it also
provides you with many other details.
For your convenience, we have divided this
booklet in the following parts:
- Chapter One: Users manual
- Chapter Two: Operations manual
- Chapter Three: Flight tutorial CYYC-KLAS
- Chapter Four: Appendix

Probably you are so enthusiastic to start
immediately flying, however we advice you
either to print the booklet or start first
reading the Users Manual with general
aircraft information and of course, the panel
description. This is almost vital to
understand the operation, handling and
control in the cockpit as well as some
hidden features.
The next logical step is the Operations
Manual. Details about the different flight
phases, how to handle the aircrafts, tables,
charts, step climb details, are right here.

Although its located the appendix, many
known FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
are covered in this chapter.

Finally, we welcome you on board of a
special non-scheduled Airbus A330-300 Air
Canada flight AC 546 from CYYC (Calgary)
to KLAS (Las Vegas).
The flight duration will be around 2 hours
and will give you a very good idea of the
possibilities of the Airbus A330 Series.

The flight tutorial is compatible with the CLS
A340-200/300, since the cockpit panels are
for 90% similar with the CLS A330-200/300.
In the Users- and Operations manual, we
gathered for you all the differences between
the A330 and A340.



The flight tutorial uses a combination of flying
a SID, waypoints, VOR beacons and a STAR.
In other words, it will cover all kind of possible
flight techniques and navigation devices. We
assume that youve got basic knowledge of
how navigation systems work, how to
power-up the aircraft system and starting the
engines.

For your convenience, we included in the
download package the FSNavigator file
CYYC-KLAS.fsn (flight plan) and the
exported FS2004 CYYC-KLAS.pln file.
The exported FS2004 flight plan file (*.pln)
can also be loaded in FSX and used for in
combination with the onboard MCDU.
The only add-on program, which is used in
this flight tutorial is FSNavigator 4.7.














On purpose, we did not use any add-on
free- or payware products. You are of course
free to use any of those however, flying online
at VATSIM, IvAo or FPI could give problems
with the approach flight phase in the tutorial.

Finally, we from CLS, wish you a lot of fun
with the Airbus A330/A340-200/300 Family.



Yours Sincerely,
The Commercial Level Simulations team

Users Manual
Airbus A330-200/300 Family

The Airbus A330 is a large-capacity, wide-body, medium-to-long-range commercial passenger
airliner manufactured by EADS. The developed was at the same time as the four-engined A340-
200/300. Airbus intended the A330 to compete directly in the ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-
engine Operation Performance Standards) market, specifically with the Boeing 767.

The A330's fuselage and wings are virtually identical to those of the smaller A340 variants,
although it has different engines. The A330 basic fuselage design is inherited from the Airbus
A300, as is the nose/cockpit section and the fly-by-wire system and flightdeck from the A320
Series. Both the A330 and A340 are assembled on the same final assembly line at
Toulouse/Blagnac in France.

The A330-200 developed was to compete with the Boeing 767-300ER.
The A330-200 is similar to the A340-200 or a shortened version of the A330-300.

With poor sales of the A340-200 (of which only 28 were built), Airbus decided to use the fuselage
of the A340-200 with the wings and engines of the A330-300. This significantly improved the
economics of the plane and made the model more popular than the four-engined variant.

Its vertical fin is taller than that of the A330-300 to restore its effectiveness due to the fuselage
shrink. It has additional fuel capacity and, like the A330-300, has a MTOW of 233 tonnes. Typical
range with 253 passengers in a three-class configuration is 12,500 km.
Engine thrust is provided by two General Electric CF6-80E, Pratt & Whitney PW4000 Series or
the Rolls-Royce Trent 700 Series.

The A330-300, which entered service in 1993 was developed as replacement for the A300-600.
It is based on a stretched
A300-600 fuselage but with
new wings, stabilisers and new
fly-by-wire software. The A330-
300 carries 295 passengers in
a three-class cabin layout (335
in 2 class and 440 in single
class) over a range of 10,500
km (5,650 nautical miles). It
has a large cargo capacity,
comparable to early Boeing
747s. Some airlines run
overnight cargo-only flights
after daytime passenger
services.

The A330-300 has the same
engines as fitted the A330-200.
US Airways was the launch customer in the United States with nine A330-300s.
The direct Boeing equivalent is the Boeing 777-200.

ECAM
The Airbus Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring is unique in its design. It not only shows
engine parameters but it also assists the flight crew how to handle advisories, cautions and
warnings. ECAM tells the crew exactly, which actions must be done to solve a problem. It shows
this in clear written text on the WD/E and they just have to follow this.

Apart of lots of computers, visible in the cockpit are the E/WD
3

Hy-bypass Engines

The A330-200/300 comes with three different types of engines.
The British Rolls Royce Trent 700 Series, with it is unique triple spool system, the famous
General Electric CF6-80E Series and finally the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 Series.

Although the engine performances are more or less the same, the indications on the ECAM E/WD
and SD displays are different, therefore we have added a short description here.



The RR Trent 700 Series has three
spools; the N1, N2 and the N3.
The important parameters of the
engine EPR/EGT/N1/N3 are
situated on the ECAM E/WD.
Engine Pressure Ration (EPR) is
the mean thrust parameter, used by
Rolls Royce and alternately, the N1.





The PW4000 Series consists out of
a normal twin spool system, which
are the N1 and N2.
The ECAM E/WD looks very similar
to the RR Trent page but there is no
sign of the N3 parameter.
PW also uses EPR since its
existents as the main thrust
parameter with a backup for the N1.




General Electric with its
CF6-80E Series is the same as PW,
a twin spool N1 and N2 system.
The mean thrust parameter is the
N1 with no backup to e.g. EPR,
therefore the E/WD looks a little
empty since only the N1 and EGT
indicators are shown.
N2 is important but not used for
thrust calculation.

Flight Control Unit (FCU)

The FCU or more specifically the AFS panel is located on the glare shield and used by the crew
for short-term interface with the FMGEC. The AFS panel is used to select any flight parameter or
modify those selected in the MCDU. The Auto Pilot (AP) and Auto Thrust (AT) functions may be
engaged or disengaged from this panel. Different guidance modes can be selected to change
various targets (speed, heading, track, altitude, flight path angle, vertical speed).
One type is the Managed Mode, controlled and monitored by the Flight Management Guidance
System (FMGS); the other uses target inputs, which are manually entered by the pilot via the AFS
panel. When the aircraft uses target inputs from the FMGS, the respective FCU window display
shows amber dashes and the amber dot.

Airbus A340-200/300 Family

The A340-200 and -300 are the original variants of the successful quad engine A340 family of
long haul wide bodies. The A340 and closely related A330 where launched in June 1987, with the
A340-300 first flight occurring on October 25 1991.

The A340 entered service with Lufthansa and Air France in March 1993, following JAA
certification the previous December.
The A340 shares the same flight deck including side stick controllers and EFIS, fly-by-wire,
basic airframe, systems, fuselage and wing with the A330.

Power is from four CFM56s, the four engines configuration being more efficient for long range
flights and free from ETOPS restrictions.

The A340-300 has the same fuselage length as the A330-300, while the shortened A340-200
trades seating capacity for greater range. Its maiden flight was on April 1
st
, 1992.
The heavier A340-300E is available in 271,000kg (597,450lb) and 275,000kg (606,275lb) max
takeoff weights, their typical ranges with 295 passengers are 13,155km (7100nm) and 13,525km
(7300nm) respectively. Power for these models is ranging from 152.3kN (34,000lb) CFM56-5C4s.
On April 1996, the first A340-300E was delivered to Singapore Airlines.

Both the twin-engine A330 and the four-engine A340 were designed as a medium-capacity wide
body family of aircraft for regional, long range, and ultra long-range routes.
With over 320 firm orders from 41 different customers, the 330 and 340 series have established a
market lead (44%) in the 250-350 seat categories.

The A340 is capable of flying non-stop with a full passenger load over longer routes than any
other aircraft. The A340-200 typically carries 263 passengers in three classes while the larger
A340-300 carries 295. The A340-8000, which will have a range of up to 8,000 miles, will be ready
for service in 1997. Since entering service in 1993, the A340 has joined the fleets of 17 different
airlines worldwide and has carried more than nine million passengers.

A340-200/300 Panel Description

As you know now, a lot of systems, instruments and/or panels, are the same as the A330.
Not surprisingly since the design and manufacturing of the A330/A340, are like brothers and
sisters and built in the same hangar.
A complete new panel description for the A340 is therefore not necessary. On the description
pages, you will explore what is added or different compared to the A330 cockpit.

Hi-bypass Engines

For the A340, CFM International supplies the CFM56-5C series as a total propulsion system:
engine, nacelle, and exhaust systems as opposed to just bare engines of the other variants.
CFM International is a joint venture between the French Snecma and the American giant
General Electric Aviation, based in Cincinnati.
With thrust rating of between 31,200 to 34,000 lbf (139 kN to 151 kN), the CFM56-5C series is the
most powerful of the CFM56 family.
It powers Airbus' long-range A340-200/300 airliners, and entered service in 1993.

It features exhaust design featuring mixer and an integrated nozzle for good efficiency and it also
features the unique 'petal' thrust reversers rather than the conventional cascade design. This is
due to the A340 requirements of maximum range and efficiency.

Operations Manual
Airbus A330-200/300
Basic Pilot Information

Pilots view reference point is approximately 19.20 feet from the ground, with ground visibility
limited to 45.10 feet looking down at an angle of 19.20 degrees. For proper engine and aircraft
operations, the captain must view the EICAS as the engines and wings are not visible from the
flight deck. Pilots rearward view is based on the captains eye reference point with 135 degrees
of max travel.

Taxi Phase

1. The nose wheel steering and the engine thrust are used to taxi the airplane.
2. Make sure you have the necessary clearance when you go near a parked airplane
or other structures.
3. Set takeoff flaps. Opensky recommended setting is Flaps position 2.
4. When the APU in the taxi airplane or the parked airplane is on you must have a minimum
clearance of 50 feet between the APU exhaust port and
the adjacent airplane's wingtip (fuel vent).
5. The taxi speed must not be more than approximately 30 knots. Speeds more than 30 knots
added to long taxi distances would cause heat to collect in the tires. Recommended speed is
20 knots. Beware of changing GS numbers due to tailwinds during taxi.
6. Before making a turn, decrease the speed of the airplane to a speed of approximately 8 to 12
knots. Make all turns at a slow taxi speed to prevent tire skids.
7. Do not try to turn the airplane until it has started to move.
8. Make sure you know the taxi turning radius.
Caution: The A330-200/-300 is an extremely long aircraft.
Take particular care of the wheelbase when turning.
9. Monitor the wingtips and the horizontal stabilizer carefully for clearance with buildings,
equipment, and other airplanes.
10. When a left or right engine is used to help make a turn, use only the minimum power
possible.
11. Do not let the airplane stop during a turn.
12. Do not use the brakes to help during a turn. When you use the brakes during a turn, they will
cause the main and nose landing gear tires to wear.
13. When it is possible, complete the taxi in a straight-line roll for a minimum of 10 feet.
Note: This will remove the torsional stresses in the landing gear components
and in the tires.
14. Use the Inertial Reference System (IRS) in the ground speed (GS) mode to monitor
the taxi speed.
15. If the airplane taxi speed is too fast (with the engines at idle), operate the brakes slowly and
smoothly for a short time. NOTE: This will decrease the taxi speed.
16. If the taxi speed increases again, operate the brakes as you did in the step before.
17. Always use the largest radius possible when you turn the airplane.
Note: This will decrease the side loads on the landing gear, and the tire wear will be
decreased.

Taxi Phase (cont)

18. Again, extra care must be given to turn the aircraft due to the fuselage length and wingspan.
A minimum distance from the edge of the pavement must be maintained to reverse the
aircrafts direction.
Minimum distance with 60 degree steering angle is 166 FT:


19. Operate the brakes to stop the airplane.
20. Set the parking brake after the airplane has stopped.

Takeoff (TO) Phase

1. For your actual TO speeds, you need to use the MCDU.
Via the TO/APPROACH key on the keypad, followed by LSK 6R, you can calculate
the required speeds.
2. Align aircraft with runway centerline.
3. Increase power to approximately 55% N1, pause briefly to verify that engines have stabilized.
4. Watch ECAM indicators for engine problems or aircraft alarms.
5. Increase power smoothly to pre-determined N1 speeds based on aircraft takeoff weight,
(85% - 105% N1). This can either be done manually or using the autothrottle with the
autopilot engaged.
6. At Vr, smoothly rotate aircraft 8 degrees upwards at a pitch rate of 2 3 degrees per second.
Caution: DO NOT rotate more than 8 degrees to avoid tail strike.
Tail strike will occur at 9 degrees rotation.
7. Hold nose at +10 degrees after positive rate of climb is confirmed, then raise landing gear
after V2 (see below).


NORMAL TAKE OFF PATTERN


Operations Manual Airbus A330-200/300




Commercial Level Simulations Version 4.5 / July 23, 2007

8. Set initial climbout speed to V2+15 KTS, 1500 fpm.
Caution: DO NOT exceed 15 degrees of bank below 230 knots on initial climbout.
9. Maintain +10 degrees climb to 1500 FT, or obstacle clearance, whichever is higher. +12-15
degrees climb after 1500 FT.
Caution: On heavy climbout, lower nose as necessary to gain airspeed.
Beware of terrain.
9. At 1500 FT above field elevation, begin slat retraction per retraction table.
Maximum slat/flap speed limits are:

Flap Position Maximum Speeds (knots)
1 250
2 210
3 180
4 160

10. Increase speed to 230 250 in accordance with ATC instructions
(max 250 KTS below 10,000 FT).
11. For full maneuverability beneath 10,000 FT, slats must be fully retracted with aircraft at
minimum safe airspeed

Climb (CL) Phase

1. Select highest FLEX N1 setting. Once climb thrust or airspeed is set, the autopilot will
compensate for environmental condition changes automatically during the climb.
2. It is recommended that the aircraft be flown manually up to 15,000 FT, weather and ATC
traffic conditions permitting. However, in high traffic conditions, to easy the workload of the
pilot, the autopilot MCP altitude intervention may be engaged above a minimum altitude of 80
FT with the landing gear up.
3. Climb settings use a 10 20% derate of thrust up to 10,000 FT, then increases linearly to
max thrust at 30,000 FT.
4. For enroute climb, climb at a rate of 1800 - 3000 FPM, pursuant to ATC and traffic
conditions. If there is no altitude or airspeed restrictions, accelerate to the recommended
speed. The sooner the aircraft can be accelerated to the proper climb speed, the more fuel
and time efficient the flight.
5. As engine and wing icing may occur during the climb and descent, the engine anti-icing
system should be in the AUTO or ON position whenever icing is possible. NOTE: Failure to
do so may result in engine stall, overheating, or engine damage.
6. For normal economy climb, follow ATC speed restrictions of 250 KTS below 10,000 FT. If
permitted by ATC and no speed restriction below 10,000 FT, increase speed to 280 KTS.
Above 10,000 FT, climb at 300 KTS or .785 MACH.
Climb speed table is as follows:

Altitude Speed (knots)
Sea Level till 10.000 feet (FL100) 250
Above 10.000 feet (FL100) 300 / 0.82 Mach

7. Max climb speed is 300 knots until reaching 0.80 MACH at initial cruise altitude.
8. For engine out climb, speed and performance various with gross weight and altitude,
however 260 knots at 1000 1500 FPM may be used.
9. Set standard barometer above airport transition level, which depends on local
airport geography.

1. Cruise at .80 MACH (Econ), .82 MACH (Max).
2. A typical step climb in 4000 FT minimum intervals, minimum 300 FPM climb, see below:

3. Headwinds will increase engine power, reduce cruise speed and decrease range.
4. Tailwinds will decrease engine power, increase cruise speed and increase range.
5. Follow previously entered FMC waypoints.
6. Fuel Freeze -- Extended operation at cruise altitude will lower fuel temperature. Fuel cools at
a rate of 3 degrees C per hour, with a max of 12 degrees C in extreme conditions. Fuel
temperatures tend to follow TAT (total air temperature).
To raise fuel temperature/TAT, a combination of factors can be employed:
- Descent into warmer air,
- Deviate to warmer air,
- Increase Mach speed.

An increase of 0.01 Mach will increase TAT by 0.5 0.7 C.
7. Increased fuel burn can result from:
- High TAT,
- Lower cruiser altitude than originally planned,
- More than 2,000 FT above the optimum calculated altitude,
- Speed faster or slower than 0.80 Mach cruise,
- Strong headwind,
- Unbalanced fuel,
- Improper aircraft trim.

8. Fuel penalties are:
- 2000 FT above optimum 3 percent increase in fuel usage,
- 4000 FT below optimum 5 percent increase in fuel usage,
- 8000 FT below optimum 12 percent increase in fuel usage
- Mach .01 above Mach 0.84 3 percent increase in fuel usage
- Higher climb rates, 3000 fpm over 29,000 increased fuel usage.

9. In the case of engine out cruise, it may be necessary to descend. NOTE: For engine failure,
divert to the nearest available airfield to avoid overstressing engines and unnecessary risk.
Use good judgement to select an airfield that can accommodate an aircraft of this size.
Consideration must also be giving to ground facilities to accommodate
number of passengers onboard.
10. Trim aircraft for proper elevator alignment.
11. In case of engine out cruise, trim rudder for directional alignment.
12. Deviate from flight plan for weather, turbulence, or traffic as necessary after receiving
clearance from ATC.

Descent Phase

1. For your actual approach speeds, you need to use the MCDU.
Via the TO/APPROACH key on the keypad, followed by LSK 6R, you can calculate
the required speeds.
2. Descent at pre-determined TOD (Top of Descent).
3. Descent at 300 KT above 10,000 FT.
4. Use speedbrakes or thrust to minimize vertical path error.
5. Proper descent planning is necessary to ensure proper speed and altitude at the arrival point.
Distance required for descent is 3NM/1000FT.
Descent rates are as follows:
Intended Speed Descent Rate
CLEAN Configuration With SPEEDBRAKES
0.82 Mach / 300 knots 2500 FPM 5500 FPM
250 knots 1400 FPM 3500 FPM
VREF 30 + 80 knots 1100 FPM 2400 FPM

6. Plan to descend so that aircraft is at approximately 10,000 FT above ground level, 250 KTS,
30 miles from airport.
7. At average gross weights, it requires 60 seconds and 5 NMs to decelerate from 300 KTS to
250 KTS for level flight without use of the speedbrakes.
It requires 110 seconds to slow from 300 KTS to minimum clean airspeed. Using
speedbrakes will reduce the times and distances by half.
8. Arm speedbrakes and autobraking to position Low or Med on initial descent.
9. Set airport altimeter below transition level.
10. Avoid using the landing gear for drag above 180-200 KTS to avoid damage to doors or
passenger discomfort due to buffeting.
11. Recommended approach planning, ATC and airport rules permitting:
- 250 KTS below 10,000 FT, 30 miles from airport,
- 180-230 KTS, 23 miles from airport,
- Slow to VREF at GS capture,
- VREF, 5 7 miles from airport.

12. In case of rapid descend due to depressurization, bring aircraft down to a safe altitude as
smoothly as possible. Using the autopilot is recommended.
Check for structural damage. Avoid high load maneuvering.
13. Stall recovery can be accomplished by lowering the aircrafts nose and increasing power at
once to gain airspeed. Beware of terrain. Accelerate to VREF 30 + 80 KTS. Do not retract
gear until confirmed stall recovery and positive rate of climb.
Keep nose at 5 degrees above the horizon or less.
14. If deployed, do not retract slats during the recovery, as it will result in altitude loss.
15. In the event of engine out approach, approach at VREF+5 at FLAPS position 3.
16. Under normal conditions land at VREF at FLAPS position 4.

17. ILS Approach
During initial maneuvering for the approach, extend flaps to position 1 and slow to 180-
200kts. When the localizer is alive, extend flaps to 2 and maintain speed, keep at 180 knots.

At glideslope intercept, extend the landing gear, extend flaps to 4 and slow to Vref + 5.
Be stabilized by 1000 feet above field level.
This means, gear down, flaps 4, Vref +5 and engines spooled. Plan to cross the runway
threshold at Vref. The A330 will maintain nose up angle of +4 degrees.



18. Visual Approach
Similar to the ILS approach. The major difference is that aircraft must be stabilized by 500
feet above field level, as opposed to 1000 feet.
ILS APPROACH


Operations Manual Airbus A330-200/300




Commercial Level Simulations Version 4.5 / July 23, 2007
Copyright 2007 Warren C. Daniel 53/166 All rights reserved
19. A stabilized approach at VREF +5 will result in a pitch attitude of 2-3 degrees nose up.
Cross the threshold at VREF. Begin the landing flare at about 30ft.
Only about 1-2 degrees of pitch up is necessary.
The tail will strike at approximately 9 degrees.
Slowly reduce thrust to nearly idle and land with idle thrust, which will result in a firm
touchdown.
At touchdown, fly the nosewheel on and the ground spoilers will deploy.
Activate the engine thrust reversers.
Normally, with autobrakes in LOW, it is sufficient to stop/reduce the aircraft speed.
MED is sufficient for short or wet runways.
Be out of reverse thrust by 80kts, this to prevent foreign object damage to the engines.
20. For wind correction, add the steady state wind plus all of the gust factor to the VREF.
Do not add more than 20 kts.
When youre landing in a crosswind condition, do not bank excessively as a wingtip or engine
nacelle can strike the ground.
21. The Commercial Level Simulations A330-200/300 is a CATII/III aircraft, meaning the aircraft
is capable of landing on autopilot in conditions where visibility is down to 50ft AGL.
22. Land the aircraft.
To avoid tail strike, do not flare, flying the aircraft straight onto the runway.
23. Disarm (AP and A/THR will disengage) reverse thrust at 80 knots.
24. Disarm the AUTOBRAKE system by deselecting the LO or MED mode at 60 knots or as
necessary.
25. Turn off onto high-speed taxiways at 30 knots or less.
26. Reverse thrust is most effective at higher speeds.
Slow to safe taxi speed with braking and exit the runway.
27. Decelerate to 8 12 knots for 90 turns.
28. Taxi to gate.

Taxi Phase

1. The nose wheel steering and the engine thrust are used to taxi the airplane.
2. Make sure you have the necessary clearance when you go near a parked airplane
or other structures.
3. Set takeoff flaps.
Commercial Level Simulations recommended setting is FLAPS 2.
4. When the APU in the taxi airplane or the parked airplane is on you must have a minimum
clearance of 50 feet between the APU exhaust port and the adjacent airplane's
wingtip (fuel vent).
5. The taxi speed must not be more than approximately 30 knots. Speeds more than 30 knots
added to long taxi distances would cause heat to collect in the tires. Recommended speed is
20 knots. Beware of changing GS numbers due to tailwinds during taxi.
6. Before making a turn, decrease the speed of the airplane to a speed of approximately 8 to 12
knots. Make all turns at a slow taxi speed to prevent tire skids.
7. Do not try to turn the airplane until it has started to move.
8. Make sure you know the taxi turning radius.
Caution: The A340-200/-300 is an extremely long aircraft.
Take particular care of the wheelbase when turning.
9. Monitor the wingtips and the horizontal stabilizer carefully for clearance with buildings,
equipment, and other airplanes.
10. When a left or right engine is used to help make a turn,
use only the minimum power possible.
11. Do not let the airplane stop during a turn.
12. Do not use the brakes to help during a turn. When you use the brakes during a turn, they will
cause the main and nose landing gear tires to wear.
13. When it is possible, complete the taxi in a straight-line roll for a minimum of 10 feet.
Note: This will remove the torsional stresses in the landing gear components,
and in the tires.
14. Use the Inertial Reference System (IRS) in the ground speed (GS) mode
to monitor the taxi speed.
15. If the airplane taxi speed is too fast (with the engines at idle), operate the brakes slowly and
smoothly for a short time.
Note: This will decrease the taxi speed.
16. If the taxi speed increases again, operate the brakes as you did in the step before.
17. Always use the largest radius possible when you turn the airplane.
Note: This will decrease the side loads on the landing gear,
and the tire wear will be decreased.

Taxi Phase (cont)

18. Again, extra care must be given to turn the aircraft due to the fuselage length and wingspan.
A minimum distance from the edge of the pavement must be maintained to reverse the
aircrafts direction.
Minimum distance with 60 degree steering angle is 166 FT:



19. Operate the brakes to stop the airplane.
20. Set the parking brake after the airplane has stopped.

Take Off (TO) Phase

1. For your actual approach speeds, you need to use the MCDU.
Via the TO/APPROACH key on the keypad, followed by LSK 6R, you can calculate
the required speeds
2. Align aircraft with runway centerline.
3. Increase power to approximately 55% N1, pause briefly to verify that engines have stabilized.
4. Watch EICAS indicator for engine problems or aircraft alarms.
5. Increase power smoothly to pre-determined N1 speeds based on aircraft takeoff weight,
(85% - 105% N1).
This can either be done manually or using the autothrottle with the autopilot engaged.
6. At Vr, smoothly rotate aircraft 8 degrees upwards at a pitch rate of 2 3 degrees per second.
Caution: DO NOT rotate more than 8 degrees to avoid tail strike.
7. Hold nose at +10 degrees after positive rate of climb is confirmed, then raise landing gear
after V2 (see below).
8. Set initial climbout speed to V2+10 KTS, 1500 fpm.
Caution: DO NOT exceed 15 degrees of bank below 230 knots on initial climbout.
9. Maintain +10 degrees climb to 1500 FT, or obstacle clearance, whichever is higher. +12.5
degrees climb after 1500 FT.
Caution: On heavy climbout, lower nose as necessary to gain airspeed. Beware of terrain.

10. At 1500 FT above field elevation, begin slat retraction per retraction table.
Maximum slat speed limits are:

Flap Position Maximum Speeds (knots)
1 250
2 210
3 180
4 160

11. Increase speed to 230 250 in accordance with ATC instructions
(max 250 KTS below 10,000 FT).
12. For full maneuverability beneath 10,000 FT, slats must be fully retracted with aircraft at
minimum safe airspeed.

Climb (CL) Phase

1. Select highest FLEX N1 setting. Once climb thrust or airspeed is set, the autopilot will
compensate for environmental condition changes automatically during the climb.
2. It is recommended that the aircraft be flown manually up to 15,000 FT, weather and ATC
traffic conditions permitting. However, in high traffic conditions, to easy the workload of the
pilot, the autopilot MCP altitude intervention may be engaged above a minimum altitude of 80
FT with the landing gear up.
3. Climb settings use a 10 20% derate of thrust up to 10,000 FT, then increases linearly to
max thrust at 30,000 FT.
4. For enroute climb, climb at a rate of 1800 - 2500 FPM, pursuant to ATC and traffic
conditions. If there is no altitude or airspeed restrictions, accelerate to the recommended
speed. The sooner the aircraft can be accelerated to the proper climb speed, the more fuel
and time efficient the flight.
5. As engine and wing icing may occur during the climb and descent, the engine anti-icing
system should be in the AUTO or ON position whenever icing is possible.
NOTE: Failure to do so may result in engine stall, overheating, or engine damage.
6. For normal economy climb, follow ATC speed restrictions of 250 KTS below 10,000 FT.
If permitted by ATC and no speed restriction below 10,000 FT, increase speed to 280 KTS.
Above 10,000 FT, climb at 300 KTS or .820 MACH.
Climb speed table is as follows:

Altitude Speed (knots)
Sea Level till 10.000 feet (FL100) 250
Above 10.000 feet (FL100) 300 / 0.82 Mach

7. Max climb speed is 300 knots until reaching .820 MACH at initial cruise altitude.
8. For engine out climb, speed and performance various with gross weight and altitude,
however 260 knots at 1000 1500 FPM may be used.
9. Set standard barometer above airport transition level (depends on local airport geography).

3. Headwinds will increase engine power, reduce cruise speed and decrease range.
4. Tailwinds will decrease engine power, increase cruise speed and increase range.
5. Follow previously entered FMC waypoints.
6. Fuel Freeze -- Extended operation at cruise altitude will lower fuel temperature.
Fuel cools at a rate of 3 degrees C per hour, with a max of 12C in extreme conditions.
Fuel temperatures tend to follow TAT (total air temperature).
To raise fuel temperature/TAT, a combination of factors can be employed:
- Descent into warmer air,
- Deviate to warmer air,
- Increase Mach speed.

An increase of 0.01 Mach will increase TAT by 0.5 0.7C.

7. Increased fuel burn can result from:
- High TAT,
- Lower cruiser altitude than originally planned,
- More than 2,000 FT above the optimum calculated altitude,
- Speed faster or slower than 0.82 Mach cruise,
- Strong headwind,
- Unbalanced fuel,
- Improper aircraft trim.

8. Fuel penalties are:
- 2000 FT above optimum 3% increase in fuel usage,
- 4000 FT below optimum 5% increase in fuel usage,
- 8000 FT below optimum 12% increase in fuel usage,
- Mach 0.01 above Mach 0.82 3% increase in fuel usage,
- Higher climb rates, 3000 fpm over 29,000 increased fuel usage

9. In the case of engine out cruise, it may be necessary to descend.
NOTE: For engine failure, divert to the nearest available airfield to avoid overstressing
engines and unnecessary risk. Use good judgement to select an airfield that can
accommodate an aircraft of this size. Consideration must also be giving to ground
facilities to accommodate number of passengers onboard.
10. Trim aircraft for proper elevator alignment.
11. In case of engine out cruise, trim rudder for directional alignment.
12. Deviate from flight plan for weather, turbulence, or traffic as necessary after receiving
clearance from ATC.

Descent Phase

1. For your actual approach speeds, you need to use the MCDU.
Via the TO/APPROACH key on the keypad, followed by LSK 6R, you can calculate
the required speeds.
2. Descent at pre-determined TOD (Top of Decent).
3. Descent at 300 KT above 10,000 FT.
4. Use speedbrakes or thrust to minimize vertical path error.
5. Proper descent planning is necessary to ensure proper speed and altitude at the
arrival point. Distance required for descent is 3NM/1000FT.
Descent rates are as follows:
6. Plan to descend so that aircraft is at approximately 10,000 FT above ground level, 250 KTS,
30 miles from airport.
7. At average gross weights, it requires 60 seconds and 5 NMs to decelerate from 300 KTS to
250 KTS for level flight without use of the speedbrakes.
It requires 110 seconds to slow from 300 KTS to minimum clean airspeed.
Using speedbrakes will reduce the times and distances by half.
8. Arm speedbrakes and autobraking to position LO or MED on initial descent.
9. Set airport altimeter below transition level.
10. Avoid using the landing gear for drag above 180-200 KTS to avoid damage to doors or
passenger discomfort due to buffeting.
11. Recommended approach planning, ATC and airport rules permitting:
- 250 KTS below 10,000 FT, 30 miles from airport,
- 180-230 KTS, 23 miles from airport,
- Slow to VREF at GS capture,
- VREF, 5 7 miles from airport.
12. In case of rapid descend due to depressurization, bring aircraft down to a safe altitude as
smoothly as possible. Using the autopilot is recommended.
Check for structural damage. Avoid high load maneuvering.
13. Stall recovery can be accomplished by lowering the aircrafts nose and increasing power at
once to gain airspeed. Beware of terrain. Accelerate to VREF 30 + 80 KTS.
Do not retract gear until confirmed stall recovery and positive rate of climb. Keep nose at 5
degrees above the horizon or less.
14. If deployed, do not retract slats during the recovery, as it will result in altitude loss.
15. In the event of engine out approach, approach at VREF+5 with FLAPS 3.
16. Under normal conditions land at VREF with FLAPS 4.

17. ILS Approach
During initial maneuvering for the approach, extend flaps to position 1 and slow to 180-
200kts. When the localizer is alive, extend flaps to 2 and maintain speed, keep at 180 knots.
At glideslope intercept, extend the landing gear, extend flaps to 4 and slow to Vref + 5.
Be stabilized by 1000 feet above field level.
This means, gear down, flaps 4, Vref +5 and engines spooled.
Plan to cross the runway threshold at VREF.
The A340 will maintain nose up angle of +4 degrees.


ILS APPROACH


Operations Manual Airbus A340-200/300




Commercial Level Simulations Version 4.5 / July 23, 2007
Copyright 2007 Warren C. Daniel 64/166 All rights reserved

18. Visual Approach
Similar to the ILS approach. The major difference is that aircraft must be stabilized by 500
feet above field level, as opposed to 1000 feet.
19. A stabilized approach at VREF +5 will result in a pitch attitude of 3-4 degrees nose up.
Cross the threshold at Vref. If flaring, begin the landing flare at about 30ft. Only about 1-2
degrees of pitch up is necessary.
Slowly reduce thrust to nearly idle.
Landing with thrust at idle will result in a firm touchdown. Set thrust just above idle.
At touchdown, fly the nose wheel on and the ground spoilers should deploy.
Deploy reverse thrust.
Normally, autobrakes LO position is sufficient stopping power.
MED is sufficient for short or wet runways.
Be out of reverse thrust by 80kts to prevent foreign object damage to the engines.
20. For wind correction, add the steady state wind plus the entire gust factor to the Vref. Do
not add more than 20 kts. When landing in a crosswind, do not bank excessively as wingtip
or engine pod strike may occur.
21. The Commercial Level Simulations A340 is a CATII/III aircraft, meaning the aircraft is capable
of landing on autopilot in conditions where visibility is down to 50ft AGL.
22. Land the aircraft.
To avoid tail strike, do not flare, flying the aircraft straight onto the runway.
23. Disengage (AP and A/THR will disengage) reverse thrust at 80 knots.
24. Disarm the autobraking at 60 knots or as necessary.
25. Turn off onto high-speed taxiways at 30 knots or less.
26. Reverse thrust is most effective at higher speeds.
Slow to safe taxi speed with braking and exit the runway.
27. Decelerate to 8 12 knots for 90 turns.
28. Taxi to gate.

Flight Planning
Route Finder

Route Finder is an on-line flight planning system for flight simulations.
This route generator service does not contain all the logic and features of its counterpart aimed
at real aviation users (and the underlying database is maintained separately, trying to meet PC
flight simulation needs) but its constantly updated with a current AIRAC
5
.
For this Air Canada flight, we start with Route Finder. When we have created our flight plan, we
can use these coordinates in FSNavigator, which we then load into the MCDU of the A330 Series.



Detailed description of the operation of Route Finder can be found on their website.
For the moment, we need the created flight plan.

Users Information SID STAM1 CYYC

Generally departing from an airport goes via a Standard Instrument Departure (SID).
Aircrafts departing via a SID gives both ATC and pilots some convenience on a critical part of the
flight. A SID is mostly a line of fixes, waypoints and/or VOR stations.
Further, it also provides vertical guidance in relation to e.g. initial cleared flight level. Always there
is a possibility that ATC overrides a typical SID and provides the pilots with radar vectors.



For our departure from runway 34 (343) we find the following description:
All runways: Climb to and maintain 7000 AGL for vectors to assigned route or depicted fix,
Runway 10: Climb runway HDG or as assigned for vectors. No turn below 6500.

What does it all mean for our departure?
On the FCU
11
we need to enter the runway HDG (343) and the initial cleared altitude of 7000
feet. Initial TO speeds - V1, VR and V2 - are calculated by the MCDU (FMGEC
12
).

Since we do not have actual ATC available for this tutorial, we programmed the flight plan for a
DARWN waypoint entry.

For those who own FSNavigator or those who are interested in what is coming, the initial flight
plan and the belonging SID look like as can be seen on the figure.

Following runway heading, we climb initially to 7000 and fly to waypoint PERNA, making a RH
turn to VOR YYC and from there to waypoint DARWN.
From there we pick up the flight plan along the LO- and HI-AIRWAYS.

Heading (HDG) Modes

Although its nice that the FMGEC (FMS) is flying
the aircraft, some practice is necessary to deal
with manual HDG control or verify our position
with VOR and/or NDB stations but first we need
to reset the HDG bug!


Here the HDG bug is somewhere on the ROSE.
In case the GPS system drops OFF, the vertical
guidance goes automatically in the HDG LOCK
Mode and that equals in this case 343.

Selecting manually a NDB station

What is applicable for a manually tuned VOR
station, is also applicable for a NDB station.
One difference between a VOR/DME or VORTAC
and NDB station is the absence of DME info.

- On the LOWER ECAM/RMP panel:
- Verify ADF1 is selected
- Enter in the STBY/CRS window: 293.0 (CRD)
- Click the TRANSFER button to move the
entered frequency to the ACTIVE side.

- On the EFIS Control panel:
- Select ADF/VOR switch 1 to the ADF position
- Select the NDB button
- If applicable, deselect for the moment the
WPT and/or VOR/D pushbutton





- On the ND ROSE VOR mode:
- We can see that needle 1 is tuned for ADF1.
The pointer is heading to 152, so the NDB
is more or less on our way to GTF VOR.
- Right now its important to mention that we are
still in the GPS MAG configuration, so the FMS
(AP) is flying the aircraft in lateral mode.
MAG means Magnetic Heading while GPS
refers to the lateral mode of the FMGEC (FMS).


Also when tuned to an available NDB
station, we can see the corresponding
ADF needle in the RMI.
On this RMI we selected VOR/ADF 1
switch to ADF 1 position, which is tuned
to CRD NDB. The DME indication is still
coming from the VOR signal.

Manually flying to a VOR station

- On the AFS panel:
- Verify that your HDG bug is in line with the
lubber line (yellow line) on the ND and that
youre not in the managed HDG mode.




- On the LOWER ECAM/RMP panel:
- Verify the NAV1 pushbutton is selected,
- Click in the STBY NAV area the NAV button
The VOR button next of it, is activated as well
- In the ACTIVE window should stay 115.10
and in the STBY/CRS window C-, where
is a certain value. Here its C-144.




- The PFD FMA should look like:

- The ND header has changed to VOR MAG,
since we are in the manual VOR mode.




- On the LOWER ECAM/RMP panel:
- Turn the CRS knob in such a position that the
Course Deviation Needle (CDI) is in line with
the VOR pointer (see above).

Keep in mind .
By doing this, you directly control the lateral
position, which is the heading of the aircraft.

- Instead of controlling the HDG via the CRS
knob on the RMP, you are also able to control
the HDG of the aircraft via the HDG knob on
the AFS Control Panel. We call this the
HDG SEL Mode (Heading Select).

- On the LOWER ECAM/RMP panel:
- Verify that in the STBY NAV area, the
VOR button is deselected.
- Verify that the NAV1 and NAV buttons
are still active.



- On the PFD FMA, the HDG indication is
changed into HDG LOCK. This means, when
we dont do anything, the HDG shown on the
AFS panel, well be flown.



- On the AFS Control Panel:
- Turn the HDG knob till the CDI is in line with
the VOR pointer, which represents the
selected heading in the window.
Remember, the aircraft HDG is directly
following your commands.

Conclusion

Although the normal way to control the lateral
mode is the Managed Mode, we are still able to
tune manually VOR and/or NDB stations.

This manual tuning is either to crosscheck our
current position with distance information
(VOR/DME) or just to check one or more NDB
stations.
Still it is possible to fly the aircraft manually by
disconnecting the lateral managed mode and
select a VOR station by yourself including the
HDG to fly. This old-fashioned option could be
applicable if the FMGEC (FMS) system fails.

Ok, lets put it together for you:

- Lateral Managed Mode active:
- Manually tune a VOR/D station to see
its output and distance on the ND and/or RMI.

- Manually tune a NDB station to see
its output on the ND and/or RMI.


- Managed Mode disconnected:
- Manually tune a VOR/D station via the RMP
including the course to the station (CDI).
Control the aircraft HDG from the CRS knob.

- Manually tune a VOR/D station via the RMP
including the course to the station (CDI).
Control the aircraft HDG with the HDG knob
on the AFS Control panel.

Descent Preparations

Its a good time to review our descent, approach and landing on KLAS.
Proper descent planning is necessary to ensure proper speed and altitude at the arrival point.

Descent rates are as follows:

Intended speed Descent Rate
Clean Configuration with speedbrakes
0.84Mach / 300 knots 2500 FPM 5500 FPM
250 knots 1400 FPM 3500 FPM
VREF 30 + 80knots 1100 FPM 2400 FPM

- Generally, plan the descent so that your aircraft is approximately at FL100 / 250 knots,
30 NM from the airport.
In our case, it is good to start our descent at BCE VOR (Bryce Canyon).
According to the table with an intended speed of 250 knots, our VS will be 1400 FPM.
We will follow the values of FSNavigator - 1000 FPM - and of course, when you are flying
online, ATC will guide you during your descent.

- Explanation:
We have - according to the flight plan to be at waypoint KSINO at 12880 so lets round this
13.000, which means an altitude difference from BCE VOR of roughly 19.000.

Generally during a descent we require 3NM/1000, so 3NM times 19 (19.000) equals 57NM.
We do not have to add a safe margin since this result already in arriving at 10.000 before
waypoint LUXOR. Therefore, we reduce our VS to 1000 FPM, which is calculated by
FSNavigator. See for this the flight plan on page 3.


- Overall approach planning with ATC/airport clearance available:
- 250 knots below FL100 at around 30NM out of the airport,
- 180-230 knots while 23 NM out of the airport,
- Slow down to VREF at GS
26
capture,
VREF can be found at the MCDU APPROACH page,
- VREF 5 to 7 NM from the airport.

The following pages need your attention. It concerns the ATC clearance for flying the required
STAR
27
, followed by approach fixes with finally your landing at KLAS.

So read the next pages carefully.
If its too much, just put your aircraft in a holding.
This gives you the necessary time to study what is coming up.

From the available STARs of KLAS; CLARR TWO, CRESO THREE, FUZZY SEVEN, KADDO
ONE and LUXOR TWO, we will lift out the LUXOR TWO STAR.

As can be seen on the picture, we are coming from GTF VOR flying towards Milford (MLF), into a
SSW direction to Bryce Canyon (BCE).
Form this point we start our descent to waypoint LUXOR, where we have to be at 10.000.
Ones arrived at LUXOR we will receive radar vectors to continue with the approach

Although it looks complicated, it isnt.
Ok, what we need is to fly to IAF
28
CROWE, which is far away from runway 25L.
Since the LOC
29
signal is not present at this position, we need therefore to fly on a HDG of 210
at 8000 to PRINO INT LAS.

We can also decide - depending on our flight plan - to use IAF PRINO INT LAS as entry point for
the ILS 25L. On the chart, we can see that this IAF is 19.4NM away from the runway edge.
IAF PRINO INT LAS must be flown-in at 8000 from where we slowly descent to 3800 on a HDG
of 255. This is where the GS
30
starts and full the ILS is available to land the aircraft.

CLS Frequently Asked Questions

Question Are there any CLS created world flight plans (PLN) available?
Answer Yes, we have included standard FS flight plan routes (PLN) from Airbus Industries,
Air France and Cathay Pacific.
When you have chosen for Documents during the installation process, a special
document describes how and where you need to place those FS flight plan files.

Question How do I push / pull the knobs?
Answer Left mouse click = push
Right mouse click = pull.

Question Will my auto brakes work on landing?
Answer Yes, they will. We advice you to select either the LO or MED pushbutton on the
Main Instrument Panel or on the pedestal. Do not select MAX since this is only
used in emergency conditions or during the TO.

Question Do the ground spoilers work upon landing?
Answer Yes, they do however, you need to ARM the speedbrake handle via the pedestal.

Question Can I perform an auto-landing with the panel?
Answer Yes, you can.
The necessary details can be found in the flight tutorial.

Question How do I make/edit a flight plan for the A330/A340?
Answer Use the default FS2004 flight planner and the navigation log.
When you load the trip into Microsoft Flight Simulator, it will automatically load into
the airplane and the MCDU (FMS).

Question How do I control the doors from the panel?
Answer On the righthand upper part of the overhead panel, you click the respective door
button to open it. In the flight tutorial you will find more details.

Question How do I change from FPM to Angle during my climb / descent?
Answer Select the HDG/TRK // VS/FPA button

Question How do I get the autopilot to track green dot speed, and selected altitude?
Answer Right click and pull the knob for speed, or altitude.
The plane will match the speed and altitude.
This is known as the Managed Mode, performed by the FMGEC. All these things
are covered by the flight tutorial.

Typical climb profile to initial flight level for the A330-300 is 1500 fpm to 1500 AGL,
250 knots 1800 fpm to 10000FT, increase to 300 knots over 10000 FT, 1800 fpm to
FL240, 1300 fpm to FL270. Initial flight level typically is somewhere between FL280 or
FL290. Final climb is about 300 fpm to FL280 or 290.
A330-300 is a bit more underpowered than 200.

Question The A330 is a big aircraft, about as big as a 777.
How is taxing the A330?
Asnwer Taxiing the A330 is pretty easy. You should never exceed 32 33% N1 even when
heavy to break away and start rolling. Should coast when heavy at about 29% N1.
When light, should coast at idle thrust. Not accelerate, but coast.

Question The nose seems to bit a bit high on landing.
Is this correct?
Asnwer Landing angle is about 4 degrees nose up, which is more than Boeing airplanes.

Question The handling of the A330 seems a lot different than a Boeing during a turn. Why
is this?
Asnwer Uses more rudder in a turn than Boeings.
In addition, A330 flight system is fly-by-wire.

Question I seem to loose airspeed quickly. What should I do?
Asnwer Be careful not to let the A330 climb to fast. Nose too high up causes speed loss.

Question What are A330-200/300 EZ FDE files?
Answer EZ FDE stands for Easy Flight Dynamics Engine.
The normal A330 FDEs reflect the actual aircraft performance and feeling. This will
cause the plane to be extremely difficult to fly for beginners. For those who do not
have much flight experience or simply do not care about realism,
we offer A330-200/300 EZ files, which will allow users to fly as they wish, without
realistic performance.

Question Where do I find those easy (EZ) FDE files and how to use them?
Answer During the installation process, we have created a documents folder.
This folder contains the EZ FDE files. To activate those EZ FDEs, simple copy and
paste the original files in the aircraft folder.

Question Is there any support given for these EZ FDEs?
Answer For the installation process, we do assist you where needed but support for flying
behavior is not given due to the unrealistic flight performances.

Other Questions

Question Climbout seems a bit slow when heavy Am I doing this right?
Answer After vR, rotate the nose upwards smoothly. Avoid overrotation. When the wheels are
off the ground, raise the landing gear as soon as reasonably possible to gain
airspeed. Hold max 1500 fpm until 1500 AGL. Lower the nose as necessary to gain
airspeed. The A330 will climb, however, speed is crucial.
If terrain permits, do not sacrifice airspeed for altitude.

Question So whats a typical climb profile like for an A330-200 or 300?
Answer Climb to 1500 fpm to 1500 AGL, then accelerate to 250 knots (or ATC restriction) @
1800 FPM. Pulling sharply on the flight stick will result in rapid airspeed loss from
bleeding airspeed. Above 10,000 feet, accelerate to 300 knots, 1800 fpm. Initial flight
level when heavy should be in the neighborhood of FL280 to FL330.
Step climb to final cruise altitude as weight permits.

Question Nose angle seems high on landing? Different than Boeings. Is this correct?
Answer Yes, Airbuses are more angled on approach, where Boeing aircraft are more flat.
Verify your trim and landing weight, however, you should see about +4 degrees nose
up. Fly straight at the glideslope intercept at about 180 190 knots. At intercept, lower
the landing gear and extend to flaps 4. The A330 will maintain about 4 degrees nose
up attitude. If you are seeing more than this, adjust your trim.

Question Should I flare on landing?
Answer To avoid tail strike, it is recommended to fly the aircraft straight onto the runway.

Question What are the operating speeds of the A330?
Answer Sorry, I had to edit these pages out.
I cannot release all of the information I received.

However, lets assume a flight from Zurich to Kennedy.
Here are some samples you can use:
TO speeds
- at 447,100 lbs (includes ZFW + fuel required for trip 3931 nm)
- Temp = 10 deg C., Runway=Dry, Runway Slope=0, Pressure Altitude= 0FT
- Required runway length = 3750 M
- V1/VR/V2 147/160/165 - CONF 1+F (FLAPS 1)

Landing Speed
- (Total weight = 355,200 lbs) -> ZFW (343,242) + Fuel (12,000 reserve)
- VREF 142 knots + wind component

Disclaimer not always accurate in all situations!

Question How do I calculate fuel and range?
Can you give me a sample trip fuel calcuation to use as a reference?
Answer Sure.
Lets continue the previous example.
Here we will assume a trip from Zurich, Switzerland to New York Kennedy.

Total trip length (example):
- 3931nm total trip length.

Next, calculate your travel time, required fuel, then total fuel:

Calculate total travel time (westbound assuming aloft winds):
3931 nm / 425 Average ground speed = 9.24 hrs
Note: Assume Average GS Westbound 425 knots, Eastbound 525 knots)

Calculate Required Fuel:
9.24 hr * 5300 lb per hour fuel usage = 49,021 lbs X 2 engines = 98,043 lbs

Calculate total fuel:
98,043 lbs + 12,000 lbs (alternate/reserve fuel) + 2,000 lbs (taxi fuel) = 112,043 lbs.


As you can see here, you only need 112,000 lbs fuel to cross the Atlantic on a
westbound flight. Only take the fuel you need. Split this and place fuel in both left and
right main wing tanks.
Here, your total weight on takeoff would be:

Takeoff weight - 343,242 lbs
+ trip fuel - 112,043 lbs
=======================
Total weight 455,285 lbs

As you can see here, you are well below the MTOW of 507,000 lbs.
At this configuration, according to the Airbus documentation, you should be able to
climb directly from brake trip to FL330 in 17 minutes.
If you cannot do this, you are doing something wrong.

Question What if I cant climb this quickly or am loosing too much airspeed?
What could be wrong?
Answer Verify that you only have the fuel you need, do not simply fill up to 100% fuel on all
tanks. You will be over the MTOW.
Other than that, confirm your gear is up and flaps are clean.

Question Typically what engine speeds should I be seeing?
Do the engines really work this hard?
Answer Yes. Of course, it varies by atmospheric conditions, but typically, at cruise, you should
see about 88 89% N1 at Mach 0.80, 92 94% N1 at Mach 0.82.

Question My CFM56-5C2 powered airframe seems considerably slower than the CFM56-
5C4. I cant climb as quickly. Is this correct?
Answer There are 3 engine choices floating around out there for the A340:
the CFM56-5C2, -5C3 and -5C4.

The 5C4 is currently more popular, being mounted on many higher gross weight
models. The CFM56-5C2 is rated at 31,200 lbs of thrust per engine, the -5C3 at
32,500 and the -5C4 at 34,000 lbs. The difference is about 11,200 lbs of thrust, which
is considerable. Remember, the lighter you are, the faster you will climb, so plan for
this in your fuel and payload, and when you choose your flightplan.

Sound Settings

Recommended sound settings for the A330/A340-200/300 are:




Note: Some machines will experience digital tunneling or may freeze when certain sounds are
played, due slower processors, lower amounts of RAM, and the large size of the sound
files. If you experience either of these problems, we recommend that you set sound quality
to medium or low.
