The A320 Family Systems Course serves as a comprehensive educational complement designed to enhance pilots' situational judgment. A profound understanding of aircraft systems constitutes a pivotal component of Type Rating and subsequent recurrent training. Mastery of all aircraft systems is imperative for every pilot. While manufacturers' manuals offer exclusively an operational approach, this course aims to facilitate a deeper, practical comprehension beyond mere memorization.
