AP/FD TCAS - Traffic Collision Avoidance System

Flight Operations | Applicability: Airbus fleet

Airbus Aircraft Family: A300 | A310 | A320 | A330 | A340 | A350 | A380

The Auto Pilot/Flight Director Traffic Collision Avoidance System (AP/FD TCAS) is designed to provide enhanced safety when a TCAS warning is received in the cockpit.

The crew is offered the flexibility of flying the Traffic Collision Avoidance System Resolution Advisory (TCAS RA) order in either auto-pilot or flight director mode.

AP/FD TCAS reduces by 50% the risk of inappropriate response to a TCAS order such as an over-reaction or an inverse reaction. In a potentially stressful situation, the function will maintain crew situation awareness.

The packaged AP/FD TCAS offer, including pre requisites, provides the foundation for upcoming regulatory requirements and functions.
