AIRBUS 320 AUTOLAND (POUSO AUTOMÁTICO)
This video is packed with technical information on how to perform an automatic landing on an Airbus A32F. Basically keeping the Autopilot engaged will do the job, the hard work is to monitor the aircraft performance and modes sequencing for the procedure., if anything goes wrong is the pilots responsibility to identify the situation and takeover controls.
Although the airport was at VMC, an ILS CAT2 approach (Charlie 4) was requested for training purposes. The sunrise was not really helpful either for filming or actually landing the aircraft, but I hope you enjoy this video.
REMARK: At 2:50 the inserted DECISION HEIGHT should be 126′ instead of 216′. That was an after land footage while the proper DH was inserted or actual the flight.

1- I really don’t get all those terms like “F” speed, approach phase, VLS, etc…
Please look for the “PFD DETAILED OPERATION ON APPROACH & LAND” on the video list ( http://youtu.be/bjGT9aJU6jo ), there are a lots of explanations on these things there.
