A330 - After Landing Procedure

Mon Jun 13, 2022 8:14 am

Hello (especially our resident A330 pilots),

found this nice YT video of Lion Air's A339 landing in Medina. During after-landing procedures and a subsequent checklist crew keeps Flaps at "1" level. They are not retracted at the gate either. I understand that in some instances, one may not fully retract flaps (icing condition). However, is there any specific reason (obvious) or is this rather (possibly) company specific?

Thanks!

They're kept at one if the temperature is aoove 30 degrees. In hot weather, you can get an air leak ECAM warning from overheating detected in the wing bleed air ducts if you retract the slats fully.

Or if your airline paid extra for the modification the bleed leak computer tolerance is increased to +40c before the spurious air bleed leak ECAM.

Going back to the "icing conditions" you mentioned. If you suspect contamination is possible, e.g. after landing on a snowy runway, you would not retract the slats/flaps at all until you're at the gate and they can be inspected for contamination. You can then retract them with pressure provided by the electric pumps.

One would think that this modification is standard on the A339 in the Video. However, it makes sense to keep the SOP the same within the CEO and NEO.
