Hello,on every T/O after having retracted the gear, i get aGPWS warning "don't think, don't think".I admit that, yes, when this warning comes on, I startthinking about the cause instead of stop thinking, butI cannot help....How can I get rid off that. I certainly can't fly withoutthinking :-) RegardsPeter

Peter,that warning you hear is "don't sink", it basically means that you are loosing altitude, hence the warning. Try to maintain a positive rate throughout your take-off procedure and you won't hear that warning again.The times when aircraft descended shortly after take-off are long gone... DC-8 on a hot day (ISA+30 or similar), they sometimes needed to descend for clean-up... But certainly not the B744 :)Regards,Markus
