Interlude: #Cockpit View #A320 Low Vis. Takeoff!

#blog #avgeek #aviation #airline

Folks, I'm excited to share with you a video of an extremely low-visibility, 1,000 RVR (1/8th mile in Freezing Fog) takeoff, filmed from the cockpit jumpseat!

I added some subtitles and tidbits to help you enjoy the ride.

HAPPY TAKEOFFS!

    1. Thanks for sharing Eric - How come they use TOGA and not FLEX - is that SOP in low vis? Also, I note both A319 and A320 is mentioned at various points - What are the subtle differences between them in the cockpit (sorry - flightdeck..)

      Can't wait to see some of your jumpseat footage with that GoPro of yours

      All the best

      1. Glad you liked it, Dave!

        While every SOP is different, there's not necessarily a hard requirement for using TOGA (i.e. full power) instead of FLEX (i.e. reduced thrust) on a low-vis. takeoff. It has more to do with runway length, performance, and whether the runway is contaminated with ice, slush, rain, etc.

        There's no real "hit" for using TOGA when FLEX can work (it's more to reduce long-term engine wear than anything), so I often err on the side of safety by using TOGA.
