    Sounds Head in Cockpit

    Let's assume we're in an A320. Could the following sounds be heard from the cockpit when the engines are not running?

    -Break fans
    -PTU (when it's doing it's little barking thing)
    -APU
    -Flaps in motion
    -Gear in motion
    -Aircraft doors (cabin or cargo) being opened or closed

    Thanks!

    -Break fans

    If the main doors are open, yes

    -PTU (when it's doing it's little barking thing)

    I dont think so

    -APU

    On the ground possibly, when the air con is on its rather noisy with the sound of gushing air

    -Flaps in motion

    In the air you cant hear them in the cabin except during on the ground

    -Gear in motion

    Nose gear makes a popping sound when it drops

    -Aircraft doors (cabin or cargo) being opened or closed

    No the doors are really quiet

    Re: Sounds Head in Cockpit

    I think you can hear the PTU from the cockpit even with the engines off. For example, having external power, the yellow hidraulical pump may be running, in this case we would have 3000psi only in the yellow hidraulic system. If we need also hidraulical pressure in the green system, the PTU will work to presurize it!
