A free, feature-packed resource, with guided lessons to help you learn the art & science of MCDU programming.
Before you start Read this important information!
Every feature has been tweaked, pinched, pulled and prodded so much, the site is beginning to feel like it's visiting a long-lost Italian aunt (if you actually have an Italian aunt who you don't see very often, you know exactly what we're talking about!).
Thanks to our friends at Jing-Jai Sa-Mer we've been able to massively improve performance. Any day now, the IOC will probably hand the site a plastic cup.
All the lessons have been edited and restructured. Because the lesson panel is bigger and can hold more content, we can provide more detail about each step. The lessons have been split into tabbed groups, making it easier for you to return to your place between sessions.
You will find it much easier to get through the lessons because they're now grouped so logically. Each lesson is found on a unique tab, and is divided into pages. You can easily move back and forth between the different pages and tabs, making navigation a snap.
The number of working pages is increasing every day (well, almost!). There are not lessons for all of the features yet, but all of them (and much more) will be covered in our book. We're also planning to include much more than just the MCDU on the site, with eventually all Airbus instruments and systems to be given some attention.
Learning to fly an airplane as big and complex as the Airbus is a daunting task. So if we can do anything to make it easier for you, we want to do that! While a touch screen is still the best way to interact with the system, it's obviously not available for everyone. So we have introduced the ability to enter data from your keyboard (there are still a few browser-specific bugs we need to iron out). You can also now zoom in or out within a range of 25% all the way to 500%, so you can adjust the viewing to suit your screen better than ever.
