Engine Failure During Cruise (Obstacle Strategy)
Engine Failure During Cruise
Obstacle Strategy
The goal is to maximize the flight distance while descending to the engine out cruise altitude. This becomes especially critical in areas of high terrain.

6.ATC . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .NOTIFY
The PF will perform the following driftdown procedure:
•Set Max Continuous Thrust (MCT) on operable engine.
•Disconnect A/THR.
•Select green dot speed in the FCU and maintain altitude while slowing to green dot.
•Set Cruise FL (Green Dot Level Off Altitude displayed on PERF CRZ page or from Single Engine Gross Flight Path Descent Chart) in the FCU and pull for OP DES 3-5 kts prior to green dot.
•Select a heading to keep clear of the airway, if appropriate.
•Order PM to perform ECAM actions.
•Notify ATC of intentions.
After descent is iniated:
•Maintain green dot and MCT.
•Periodically adjust FCU speed to maintain green dot.
•If V/S becomes less than 500 fpm, select V/S mode.
When reaching green dot level off altitude and terrain is not a factor:
•Set Long Range Cruise altitude on the FCU and PULL for OP DES (refer to LRC Performance Charts), unless ATC clearance indicates lower.
•Set the above altitude in the PROG page (L1 - CRZ Altitude).
When reaching Long Range Cruise Altitude:
•Engage A/THR.
•Activate managed speed and accelerate to Long Range Cruise speed (refer to Long Range Cruise Performance chart if data on PROG page is not available).
Note:One engine out ceiling information is also available in the QRM
Engine Failure During Cruise (Standard Strategy) flight time
Engine Failure During Cruise (continued)
Standard Strategy
The goal is to maximize the flight time while descending to the engine out cruise altitude. This strategy applies when high terrain is not a factor.

6.ATC . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .NOTIFY
The PF will perform the following driftdown procedure:
•Set Max Continuous Thrust (MCT) on operable engine.
•Disconnect A/THR.
•Pull to select present speed.
•Determine Cruise FL (REC MAX as displayed on PROG page). Set in FCU and PULL to initiate descent.
•Select a heading to keep clear of the airway, if appropriate.
•Order PM to perform ECAM actions.
•Notify ATC of intentions.
After descent is iniated:
•Select target speed (M.78 / 300) in the FCU.
Note:The speed target of M.78/300 knots is chosen to ensure the aircraft is within the stabilized windmill engine relight inflight envelope.
Caution:Do not decelerate below Green Dot.
•Determine Long Range Cruise altitude (refer to LRC Performance Charts). Set on the FCU and continue descent, unless ATC clearance indicates lower.
•Set the above altitude in the PROG page (L1 - CRZ Altitude).
When reaching Long Range Cruise altitude:
•Engage A/THR.
•Activate managed speed to Long Range Cruise speed (refer to LRC Performance Chart if data on PROG page is not available).
Note:One engine out ceiling information is also available in the QRM.
Standard Strategy (continued):
The REC MAX altitude provides a 0.3 G buffet margin. It is the altitude at which level flight can be maintained at engine-out long range cruise speed, with MCT set on the operating engine, anti-ice off, and the failed engine windmilling.
The driftdown altitude is often higher than the recommended maximum altitude because buffet margins are not provided at the driftdown altitude. For this reason, the flight crew should select a level-off altitude that is at or below the engine-out REC MAX altitude displayed on the PROG page
EGPWS
Alerts and Recovery
If the EGPWS detects an abnormality, an aural and visual alert will be generated.
Caution:During night or IMC conditions, apply the procedure immediately. Do not delay reaction for diagnosis.
Caution:During daylight VMC conditions, with terrain and obstacles clearly in sight, the alert may be considered cautionary. Take positive corrective action until the alert stops or a safe trajectory is ensured.
PULL UP Alerts:
These alerts include:
-“TERRAIN TERRAIN, PULL UP”
-“TERRAIN AHEAD, PULL UP”
-“WHOOP WHOOP, PULL UP.”

When alerted to “PULL UP”:
Simultaneously:
• AP . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . OFF
• PITCH . . . . . . . . . . . . . PULL UP
(pull to full backstick and hold)

. . . .WINGS LEVEL or ADJUST
• Do not change gear / flap
configuration until terrain
clearance is assured.
Note: Best climb performance is obtained when close to wings level.
For “TERRAIN TERRAIN PULL UP” or “OBSTACLE OBSTACLE
PULL UP”, if the flight crew concludes that turning is the safest
way of action, a turning maneuver can be initiated.
• Verify that all actions have been
accomplished.
• Monitor and call out vertical
flight path indications (e.g.,
“DESCENDING 400 FPM”,
“CLIMBING 400 FPM”, etc.)
When terrain clearance is assured and the warning stops:
• THRUST LEVERS . . . . . . . . CL
• Decrease pitch attitude and
accelerate.
• Engage autoflight systems as
desired.
When speed is above VLS and vertical speed is positive:
TCAS
Traffic Advisory (TA)
If an intruder represents a potential collision threat, a visual and aural “TRAFFIC” advisory will be given. Do not maneuver based solely on a TA without visually acquiring the reported traffic.
Resolution Advisory (RA)
If an intruder is considered to be a collision threat, an aural and visual RA will be generated. Aural warnings inlude:
-“CLIMB”, “DESCEND”, “MAINTAIN VERTICAL SPEED MAINTAIN”, “ADJUST VERTICAL SPEED ADJUST”, “MONITOR VERTICAL SPEED”.
TCAS determines the optimum vertical maneuver that ensures separation with a minimum change in vertical speed.
Note:The vertical maneuver may cross the altitude of the intruder.
Depending on each situation, TCAS generates a preventive or corrective advisory. On rare occasions, a modified corrective advisory is triggered which may change the vertical speed requirement due to either aircraft not performing as directed.
If an RA maneuver requires a vertical speed change, the control inputs should be accomplished smoothly but without delay by adjusting vertical speed, as required, to reach the green area and/or avoid the red area of the vertical speed scale.
Properly executed, the RA maneuver is mild and does not require large or abrupt control movements. Remember, passengers and flight attendants may not be seated during the maneuver.
If performing a PRM approach, and a TCAS RA and ATC controller’s breakout instructions occur simultaneously, comply with the TCAS vertical orders while simultaneously complying with the controller’s turn/heading instructions.
If a TCAS RA warning and a TERRAIN warning occur simultaneously, adhere to the TERRAIN warning procedure first. Attempt to identify the traffic, if possible, and inform ATC.
RAs are inhibited below 900 feet.
In all cases, compliance with TCAS RA orders is mandatory using the following memory item and procedures.

All stall, GPWS and windshear warnings take precedence over TCAS.
When “CLEAR OF CONFLICT” is announced, resume normal navigation in accordance of ATC clearance.
Simultaneously:
-Inform ATC of “TCAS Climb” or “TCAS Descent”.
If a “CLIMB” or “INCREASE CLIMB” RA is triggered on final approach, perform a normal go-around procedure.
All stall, GPWS and windshear warnings take precedence over TCAS.
•Resume normal navigation in accordance with ATC clearance.
