A320 Stud​y Guide Pro 

Full Version

The A320 Study Guide Pro (SGP) is the first software that englobes the cockpit and aircraft’s exterior locations and functionalities in the same software!

The A320 Study Guide Pro (SGP) is a reference guide for any professional who operates or is about to start operating the A320 family, looking to familiarize with the locations and functionalities of all the A320 exterior and cockpit controls and indicators. The SGP is the best complement of Airbus LMS software.

The A320 SGP Full Version includes:  

  • Training mode,
  • Exam mode.

The A320 SGP - Full Version includes:

Aircraft's Exterior Guide

On the Aircraft’s Exterior Guide you can naturally interact with the aircraft but cannot perform the walk around. This mode is only used to study the aircraft systems (CBT) and components, therefore it is ideal to be used only to learn the aircraft externals or for educational use in the classroom (ATOs).

The software contains a CBT of the aircraft, with summary information of the exterior components of the aircraft. There are “curiosity buttons” (red buttons) distributed around the aircraft next to components, probes, doors, etc. 

By clicking on them, a page will open with the explanation of the function of that specific equipment. Studying an airplane has never been so easy and entertaining as before! 

Aircraft's Exterior Guide with “curiosity buttons” (red buttons) 


The A320 SGP englobes the Airbus A320 CBT (Computer Based Training) approaching all the major aircraft systems, including all the exterior locations, components, operations, controls, and indications involved with each system. 

Cockpit Guide

Do want to study each cockpit button functionality and do not want to read a 3000-page FCOM? Instead of look for the button or system you want to study on FCOM, that can take precious time, with the Cockpit Guide you can move freely in a 3 dimension and navigate around the cockpit. It is as simple as press on the specific button you want to study, a CBT page will come out, explaining all the functionalities of that specific button: e.g. operation, controls and indication.    

The cockpit Guide is the best and simple way to study the aircraft’s FCOM, with more than 400 intractable buttons/panels. It is the best tool to familiarize with the cockpit, either to study before an exam, or just to be familiarized as much as possible before the first FFS session.

Cockpit

1 - Training: has user support (aids) - this mode is suitable for people with little to no experience. There are aids (arrow and target) that guide the user in an initial phase, to make it easier to perceive the location of the items that the checklist determines to be inspected. In this mode, it is impossible to miss the checklist order. 

In each checklist item, there is an “Inspection Hint” to guide the users how to inspect that specific component that the checklist determines to be inspected. 

There are “curiosity buttons” (red buttons) like the Aircraft’s Exterior Guide linked to a CBT, located near the items to inspect. This feature can be deactivated.

Checklist aid – black box with the explanation ( click on the image to expand it)

Exam mode - with no checklist aid

2 - Exam:  has no user support - this mode is suitable for experienced users. 

Tests the user’s external knowledge and the walk around performance. It is possible to miss the checklist order and an error will appear if it happens.  At the end, if the result is equal or above 75%, a certificate can be emitted. 

The certificate can be used for an airline or MRO to ensure that all the pilots and aircraft engineers that perform the walk around on the A320 family are fully qualified to do it.  

Computer Based Training (CBT)

Contains a CBT of the aircraft, with summary information of the exterior components of the aircraft. There are “curiosity buttons” (red buttons) distributed around the aircraft next to components, probes, doors, etc.
By clicking on them, a page will open with the explanation of the function of that specific equipment.  

In conventional CBT (like Airbus LMS), pilots and aircraft engineers study the external configuration of the aircraft, but this external training is not continuous: only some characteristics of the exterior of the aircraft are shown during the study of a specific system.      

For example, if you have any questions about a certain component of the aircraft's exterior, you can easily use the simulator and go to that specific location and press a curiosity button. By pressing it, a page will open where the function of that component is described, rather than having to search the various systems through all the aircraft manuals until you find the item you are looking for.

The example below shows the red button interaction of the LEAP 1-A engine. With the engine cowls off, when pressed on the “Combustion Section” red button (left image) the Combustion Section CBT page related to that engine opens (right image). 

Engine without cowls – curiosity buttons 

CBT page example (LEAP 1-A Combustion Section)   

With over 400 CBT pages, the  A320 Cockpit Guide has two types of intractable buttons:  

  • Cockpit buttons: all cockpit buttons, ex. Fire pushbutton, APU master switch, etc. When pressed, a CBT page will come out, explaining all the functionalities of that specific button: operation, controls and indication.   
  • Main system button (red ones):  Pressing on it, a CBT page will come out, explaining the main system of the panel, where the button is located. 

The A320 SGP – Cockpit Guide includes the aircraft’s CBT, summarily approaching all its exterior components. You can freely navigate on the cockpit and press on “curiosity buttons” (red buttons). Pressing on it, a CBT page will come out, explaining the main system of the panel, where the button is located.

Cockpit  

The Cockpit Guide will give the perfect initial familiarization with the cockpit, connecting each cockpit button and panel to the corresponding aircraft system.

The example below shows the cockpit buttons interaction

When pressed on the ND display, the following CBT page will open. Press on each ND symbol to open the explanations of that symbol. 

When pressed on the PFD display, the following CBT page will open. Press on each PFD symbol to open the explanations of that symbol.  

When pressed on any cockpit button, the following CBT page will open, explaining the functionalitues of the corresponding button.  

We create the future

The A320 SGP is designed for airlines, ATOs, MROs and self-learning pilots and aircraft engineers that operate or are about to start operating the A320 family.
