8th April 2021

Thanks to my daughter arriving back for Easter, I finally got the chance to confirm that aimsgui works correctly on MacOS. The installation of Python 3 alongside the preinstalled Python 2 is as painless as I had hoped, and the Linux instructions for running it work perfectly in the MacOS terminal. The installation and usage instructions have therefore been updated appropriately.

26th March 2021

Updated aimsgui to version 1.0. This update adds the option to remove the header from csv output. This removes a bit of friction when using this output with a spreadsheet based logbook. The example spreadsheet logbook has also been updated with a slightly more advanced version, featuring sub-totals by type, role and night/day and totals relevant to FTL limitations.

18th March 2021

Updated aimsgui to add a "Night" column to the csv output. This is a number between 0 and 1 that, when multiplied by the duration of the flight, will give you the duration of regulatory night flying (30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise). The calculation for this uses an assumed great circle routing to continually assess the day/night status at the aircraft's position throughout the flight, so it is much more accurate than using the values for origin or destination.

11th January 2021

Updated Summary of easyJet manuals to version 2.1.1. This update adds the NEO fan blade ice shedding procedure and updates external cross references in the Winter Operations section.

10th January 2021

Updated Quick Reference to version 1.4. This update mainly adds data for A321 NEO and updates external cross references.

6th January 2021

Updated Summary of easyJet manuals to version 2.1. This has a completely rewritten section on easyJet Oceanic Operations to account for the many recent changes in North Atlantic operational procedures. I am particularly interested in feedback (email address above) on this new section as it is put together from multiple sources including NAT documentation and relevant state AIPs, meaning that there is a greater than normal chance of something being incorrect or something useful being omitted.

Printed Version

For your convenience, a 240 page paperback combining the Quick Reference version 1.4, Non-normal Notes version 2.6 and Summary of easyJet manuals version 2.1.1 is available to order from lulu.com. The current edition was created on 11th January 2021.

To complete the book, it is useful to have a couple of tabs to quickly get to the contents pages; you just need a printer, a scalpel, some glue and this PDF.

Contents

A320 technical notes

A set of notes covering technical details of the airbus. These notes mainly reflect the CBT from CAE, but are also include more detailed stuff from the FCOM where appropriate. Like the CBT, they are very generic and thus a good place to get started on the technical side of things, but they cannot hope to accurately cover the almost infinitely variable modification levels found in the A320 family.
