That's sort of funny because I was reading through PPRUNE forums the other day and a pilot who flys the NG described this same reaction on the real bird. I guess his airline had it activated for 2500' and he had no idea it was coming lol..[h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

If planes made that much noise in the cockpit from the engines, think about the poor slob flying coach just behind the wing...Ray

Those callouts are loud for a reason - to make sure that the pilots absolutely know without a doubt that they're getting close to the ground! Might be a good thing to make sure they know about... ;)Ryan
