Contents

A319/A320 non-normal notes

A set of notes covering major airbus non-normal events. The initial version was notes made during my type rating at CAE, but they have since been heavily updated from the FCOM, QRH and experience in the simulator.

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.

AIMS Extract

This is a small command line tool for extracting data from easyJet AIMS servers. It runs in a terminal emulator on Linux or Mac or in the Command Prompt program on Windows.

Installation via the Python Package Index is available for any OS that has a Python interpreter available. A single file executable is provided as a simpler alternative for Windows users.

The program runs on your local machine, so you don't have to contravene easyJet's acceptable use policies by handing over authentication credentials to third parties; this is a source distribution so you can verify that nothing nefarious is done with your password.

Before accessing AIMS an active check is made for the absence of “red writing”. This protects you from accidentally accepting a change without being aware of it.

This tool is designed to be used as part of a flexible workflow. In particular iCalendar output is available for importing your roster into a multitude of diary and calendar applications, and an intermediate logbook format is available for use with the Logbook Entry Generator below that can generate CSV files suitable for import into spreadsheets, databases and should they have the facility, proprietary electronic logbook programmes.

Clicking the icon above will take you to the github repository for this tool. When you get there, scroll down to see the installation instructions. Please use the issues interface available from this page to report problems and bugs.

Logbook Entry Generator

This is a free web service that may be useful to people who use, or, in the future, intend to use, a spreadsheet for their electronic flying logbook. The input is a simple and compact batch format that minimises clicking and typing. For easyJet employees, the majority of this input can be automatically generated by using the aims-extract program (see above). The output is records in Comma Separated Value (CSV) format that can be copied in the browser and pasted into your spreadsheet. Pasting data in CSV format allows the spreadsheet’s functionality to be used to robustly break the records into columns. A help file containing a 10 minute tutorial is included.

The web service is tested on the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It will probably also work on any modern, standards compliant browser. It definitely won’t work on older versions of Internet Explorer. Please use the Github issues interface to report any problems.
