OEB 42 (A320) OEB 30 (A330/A340)

Background
The FMS may compute a vertical trajectory not in accordance with the profile coded in
the Navigation DataBase (NDB).
Conditions:
NDB coding as follows:
The Final Approach Fix (FAF) has an AT OR ABOVE altitude constraint
A Flight Path Angle (FPA) is coded on the FAF.
Cockpit effects:
FINAL APP is correctly followed but based on an erroneous trajectory
VDEV is 0

Operational recommendations
If the flight crew knows that the approach is impacted, no FINAL APP
If the flight crew does not know that the approach is impacted, no FINAL APP
Problematic
Around 3000 approaches impacted in the world
Identification of potentially impacted approaches only by NDB engineering
Need to identify impacted approaches
Need to authorize FINAL APP mode on non impacted approaches

How to identify the potentially impacted approaches?


The Flight Operations/Engineering department can:
Use the list of approaches published by Airbus
OR
Identify with a NDB tool reader
A specific Airbus World topic is available to provide details on this process

In all cases, the Flight Operations/Engineering department should confirm the list of
impacted approaches with simulator or in flight in VMC conditions.
This enables to further reduce the list of impacted approaches.

If the flight crew does not know if the approach procedure is potentially impacted
or not:
Refer to OEB procedure
In case of doubt, no FINAL APP
