A330 CQ PROGRAM 2015 - 2016


Updated 1/11/2017 - New RTS, R9 and R18, & RAD profiles now available!

URGENT: PLEASE SEND CQ SIM INTEL ASAP!
I really need your input on the SPOTS, and non-normal events that occurred during your ride so I can construct a new matrix of the scenario events. Please send me a summary of your experiences in the simulator to:
busdriver@hky.com

Note: There will no longer be any SPV 100 questions ... they are history!
The Memory Items and Limitations are included in the A330 Fact Sheet.
Systems & Limitations Validation Questions are included in the A330 Recurrent Training Questions Sheet-R9 and A330 Recurrent Training Questions Sheet-R18

The new A330 Training Guide for Continuing Qualification is available on aapilots.com>Training & Quals>Training Home>Recurrent Training>330. It important you review the CQ Guide in its entirety, as well as the slides of the respective R9 or R18 briefings.

The R9 consists of:
1. One day of classroom training
2. One day of recurrent simulator training (RTS)
3. One day for the RLE, which has a one leg city pair evaluation, and Recurrent Advanced Training (RAD)

Nine months later, pilots will return for the R18 that involves:
1. One day of classroom training
2. One day of recurrent simulator training (RTS)
3. One day for the Maneuvers-based evaluation (RVA) and RAD

RTS - RECURRENT TRAINING SIMULATOR DAY 2

The Recurrent Training Simulator (RTS) is a maneuver based session conducted by Simulator Instructors or Check Airmen during both the R9 and R18 recurrent training periods. The R18 briefing period is intended to review the profiles and procedures necessary to successfully complete an RLE or RVA.


The RTS for both the R9 and R18 are identical and interchangeable. These required maneuvers include the same First Look, Mandatory, and Fleet Specific Variable required maneuvers for the current training cycle. Performance must be to the Qual Standards proficiency before you will continue on to the R9 or R18. During the RTS, each pilot will fly all First Look and RTS Fixed Maneuvers applicable to duty position as Pilot Flying. First Look Maneuvers will not be briefed prior to the pilot’s first attempt in the simulator. The CAT III approach and landing maneuvers required for recertification (Landing and Missed Approach from lowest approach authorized) will be demonstrated to the instructor during the RTS period.


Anonymous performance and proficiency data is collected on each crewmember separately during the RTS session. Since the RTS is a proficiency based session conducted prior to the RLE (LOE) or RVA (Maneuvers Validation), training will continue until satisfactory performance is achieved on any maneuver in which performance was first demonstrated to be unsatisfactory. The instructor will recommend the crewmember progress to the RLE or RVA session or additional training if required.

It will be necessary to have this package on your iPad during your session.

Your instructor will expect you to know Limitations and Memory Items. Your training will include the following maneuvers and events:

Rejected Takeoff
Engine Fail V1 to 800' AFL
O2 Mask Use
Engine Out Approach
Engine Out Landing
Engine Out Missed Approach
Holding CAT III Approach
Go-Around/Missed Approach
Autoland
RNAV Departure

FMC Work
Automation Level Change
Non-ILS Approach
Engine Fail Critical Phase of Flight

RTS Maneuvers
First Look Maneuvers
   This maneuver will not be briefed prior to the RTS
   Engine Out ILS Approach and Landing
Mandatory Maneuvers:
   Ground Evacuation
   Engine Failure During Critical Phase
   Engine Out Landing or Missed Approach
   CAT III Approach (Landing and Missed Approach from lowest minimums authorized.)
   CAT I Approach (Minimum of 2, 1 per pilot, 1 to missed approach, 1 to landing.)
   Non ILS Approaches
   Visual Landing (Minimum 2: Not Autoland)
   Miscellaneous Emergency (Minimum 1: Emergency Descent, Ground Evacuation, Emergency Landing, Driftdown, EGPWS, TCAS)
   Adverse Environmental Conditions

R9 - RECURRENT LOE (RLE) AND RAD

The R9 Recurrent LOE (RLE) and the Advanced Training (RAD) sessions will be conducted concurrently in the same 4-hour simulator session during the R9 training period. The RLE will immediately precede the RAD. The briefing will include a systems validation and aircraft inspection (walk around) check. During your briefing, you will be asked questions on the following: Exterior Preflight Systems Validation, Memory Items and Limitations, and as many other items as necessary to determine proficiency.

RLE Leg: PHL-CLT (see A330 CQ Training Guide), MEL – 49-1 APU SYSTEM. Some possible malfunctions that might require a divert to IAD:

Gen Fault
IDG Low Oil Pressure
Pressure Fault - Loss of Cabin
Pack Overheat

It appears an enormous amount of variability has been designed into Day 3 of your adventure. Unlike the LOFTs in the past, check airmen now have a palette of scenarios and non-normals they are able to select from. This essentially means no two sessions will be alike. Using your intel reports, I'll add the events that have occurred to the list as I receive them. This means your particular ride will see some, but not all of the possible events that appear in the list.
Scenario Triggers
To be determined based on YOUR feedback ... * QRH
* Callouts
* ECAM Procedures


It is imperative you drop me a line as soon as you complete your CQ to let me know of any changes or additions to the above orals and scenarios. After you have recovered from your CQ jot down any notes on it while it's fresh in your mind and pass them along to me. The accuracy of the information posted above is only as good as the feedback I get from you guys and gals. Please pass along any additional details you feel would help.
