A320 MEMORY ITEMS – GPWS

 

EGPWS CAUTIONS

“TERRAIN TERRAIN” – “TOO LOW TERRAIN” – “TERRAIN AHEAD” – “OBSTACLE AHEAD”

  • During night or IMC: Simultaneously:

PF Announces…………………………………………..”PULL UP TOGA”

AP………………………………………………………………………OFF

PITCH…………………………………………………………………PULL UP

Pull to full back stick and maintain in that position.

THRUST LEVERS…………………………………………… TOGA

SPEED BRAKES lever…………………………….CHECK RETRACTED

BANK………………………………………… WINGS LEVEL or ADJUST

 

Aircraft achieve the best climb performance when the wings are as level as possible.

  • During daylight and VMC, with terrain and obstacles clearly in sight:

FLIGHT PATH………………………………………………………ADJUST

Adjust pitch, bank and thrust to silence the alert.

“SINK RATE”

Above 1 000 ft AAL in IMC or above 500 ft AAL in VMC:

FLIGHT PATH………………………………………………………ADJUST

 

Adjust pitch and thrust to silence the alert.

 

Below 1 000 ft AAL in IMC or below 500 ft AAL in VMC:

GO-AROUND……………………………………………………… CONSIDER

 

“DON’T SINK”

FLIGHT PATH………………………………………………………. ADJUST

Adjust pitch and thrust to silence the alert.

 

TOO LOW GEAR” – “TOO LOW FLAPS”

GO-AROUND………………………………………………………PERFORM

 

“GLIDESLOPE”

Above 1 000 ft AAL in IMC or above 500 ft AAL in VMC:

FLIGHT PATH………………………………………………………ADJUST

Adjust pitch and thrust to reduce the vertical deviation from the glideslope.

When conditions require a deliberate approach below glideslope:

G/S MODE…………………………………………………………….OFF

Below 1 000 ft AAL in IMC or below 500 ft AAL in VMC:

GO-AROUND……………………………………………………. CONSIDER

 

 

GPWS WARNINGS

 

PULL UP” – “TERRAIN AHEAD PULL UP” – “OBSTACLE AHEAD PULL UP” – “AVOID TERRAIN” – “AVOID OBSTACLE”

Simultaneously:

PF Announces…………………………………………”PULL UP TOGA”

AP………………………………………………………………………. OFF

PITCH……………………………………………………………….PULL UP

Pull to full backstick and maintain in that position.

THRUST LEVERS…………………………………………………TOGA

SPEED BRAKES lever………………………… CHECK RETRACTED

BANK……………………………………….WINGS LEVEL or ADJUST

Aircraft achieve the best climb performance when the wings are as level as possible.

If the “TERRAIN AHEAD PULL UP” or “OBSTACLE AHEAD PULL UP” aural alert triggers, a turning maneuver can be initiated if the flight crew concludes that turning is the safest action.

The PULL UP maneuver must be performed before the turn towards the safe direction, as climbing increases the terrain clearance.

The “TERRAIN AHEAD PULL UP” or “OBSTACLE AHEAD PULL UP” aural alert may be followed by the “AVOID TERRAIN” or “AVOID OBSTACLE” aural alert. In this case, the flight crew must adjust bank as necessary:

– If the alert generates when the wings are level, the aural alert indicates that the obstacles are probably ahead.

– If the alert occurs while the aircraft is turning, the aural alert indicates that the obstacles are probably within the turn trajectory.
