The following is a differences refresher if you find your self assigned to a NEO Aircraft.
As always, any JetBlue provided training information has priority over anything you may read here.
The Spring 2019 QDL has a very good NEO Training section, as well as
Flt Ops Bulletin 2019-BLTN-F018.
These graphics were provided by JBU.


Delivery Schedule
2019 --------- 6
Thru 2024 - 84

 

Engines:

P & W 1133GA-JM
33,000 Lbs Thrust
N1 Replaces EPR
Packs and Anti-Ice Status Displayed just above N1
Engine Clearance – 9” less
Normal FADEC Controlled Engine Starting.
FADEC must be powered to view oil quantity. (14 Qts min.   OAT less than minus 30C = 16.5 Qts min)
An automatic Dry Crank for cooling may occur prior to the start.

Dual Cooling Button - Allows dry crank temp stabilization/cooling of both engines at once.
                              - Press Dual Cooling button, then start eng 1. (No need to Dual Cool for expected taxi over :20)

                              - Both engines will dry crank, but only eng 1 will start.                    COOLING
Only start one engine at a time, similar to current A320/321 SOPs                              00'40"
Start Valve will be open for a longer period - This is normal
Start Limits –      35 Seconds between Start Cycles (3 Auto Starts)
                         15 Minute cooling after 3rd start cycle.
                         Do not engage starter if N2 is above 20%
Auto Ignition does not come on for Anti-Ice, Takeoff Thrust set, or Flap > 0 for Landing.

After Landing – ALWAYS a 3 minute engine cooling period, even if arriving at gate.
                           ******  Beacon must remain on ********


                            
Dimentions & Weights:


WV-53

Taxi -------- 207,014 lbs.
Takeoff ---- 206,132 lbs.
Landing ----174,606 lbs.

 



Overwing Exits and Doors:

Overwing Exits always armed just like A320



Doors ---    1L / 1R  - are normal for all aircraft.
                 2L / 2R  - have been removed.
                 OW ------ Same on all NEOs
                 3L / 3R – 321 NEO High Density (Non-Mint) Only
                 4L / 4R -  High Density & Mint Aircraft

 Cockpit Door Deadbolt - Used only if more than one cockpit door locking strike fails or for failure of locking system.



Fuel System


Wing Tanks – 13,000 lbs each. (Engines always feed from Wing tanks)
                          Center Tank – 14,200 lbs.
                          ACT 1 ----------- 5400 lbs.
                          ACT 2 ----------- 5400 lbs. (Mint Aircraft Only)

                          ACT 2 is used first, then ACT 1
                         (Transfers to Ctr tank beginning approx. 30 min after gear retraction)

(A Manual ACT Transfer Panel has been added to transfer fuel if directed by a non normal checklist)











Cargo Smoke Panel:

   Simplified operation     ECAM directs you to press one button, the rest is automatic.
                                        1 button – Fires 2 bottles at the same time.
                                        (Bottle 1 --- 60 second quick agent discharge to put out the fire)
                                        (Bottle 2  -- 195 minute slow discharge, to keep fire out)
                                        195 minutes meets the 180 minute + :15 minute reserve ETOPS requirement

















ATSAW – Airborne Traffic Situational Awareness

                 (This is kind of a combined TCAS and ADS-B Display)

                  ND – Normal TCAS Symbols – that is a TCAS target only
                         Aircraft Symbol overlayed with a TCAS symbol – That is TCAS and ADS – B target

                 Traffic Select Knob next to PFD and (MCDU Traff) buttons to control display and information.







 






















ENHANCED RADAR – New Features – 60 NM Look Ahead for Turbulence (Magenta Returns)
                                                                   Hail
                                                                   Predictive Lightning Symbols
                                                                   Alerts to monitor RADAR Display for approaching weather
                                                                   Enhanced Predictive Windshear Warnings
                                                                   Magenta Arcs - REACT (Area of Attenuation)
                                                                                        - Possible hidden weather, Avoid these areas.



















Flare Law

During landing, pitch freezes/memorized at 100', no nose down trim as on the classic aircraft.
Result is a slightly lighter feel during the flare. 


Soft G0-Around (SGA)

                    Select TOGA, (Must see GA TRK on FMA) – Then select MCT
                    2000 FPM climb is commanded
                    At THR RED ALT - Select CLB to resume normal climb


Ground Speed Mini

                     Vapp + 1/3 (Current HW - Tower reported HW) = GS Mini


CAT II/III Wind Limitations
                 
                    Headwind ------------- 15K
                   Tailwind --------------- 10K
                   Crosswind ------------- 10K

 

GLS Approaches – (This is a combined GPS/ILS approach using GPS and a ground based station)
                                    - We are currently not approved for these approaches.
                                    - When approved, fly a GLS just like an ILS.

 

CPDLC VHF Freq Loading (This feature may be activated in the future)
                         - A new RMP has a LOAD button
                         - When ATC sends a Freq Change request via CPDLC, the LOAD button illuminates.
                         - Press LOAD to send the Freq to the STBY side of the RMP, then press xfer as usual.
                         - After pressing LOAD, you can close the message.


Crew Oxygen

Normal single Push Button - Operates 2 O2 Bottles (Can now be refilled, rather than replaced)
