FMS Engine Out Mode

We recently had an A320 FMS incorrectly detect an engine out just after takeoff. The first indication you will probably notice, is if you select climb thrust, the FMA will be flashing
LVR MCT.  If both engines are functioning normally, you can at this point, select both thrust levers to MCT to satify the FMS directive, then select EO CLR *, button 1R, to return to normal FMS operations, then select climb thrust.

This is a simple little procedure, but it will occur at a very busy time, as you are turning, calling departure control, and reconfiguring.

It can quickly confuse you.

The best procedure is to turn on the autopilot, leave the thrust in MCT, CleanUp on schedule, select EO CLR* and finally select Climb Thrust.

If you view BlueBrief on a small mobile device it is best to use the Chrome Browser.  The stock Android browser and sometimes iPhone Safari, will not properly format the screens, etc.

Safari on the iPad seems to work just fine.

Your feedback is always welcome and actually very helpful.
