What Is The Emergency Descent Mode On The Airbus A220?

Modern aircraft are fitted with new systems that give airlines another layer of safety on their services. One such feature is the Emergency Descent Mode (EDM) that is part of the Airbus A220 Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS). This system can help the aircraft descend rapidly if there is a depressurization emergency.

This is actually a really nice system, it makes sense to have, I just hope it isn’t another MCAS

I didn’t know this existed on the A220. Definitely and exciting new feature that adds better safety to the passengers and the aircraft.

Pressurization: adios

Everyone: starts dancing
