The horn can also be silenced with the horn silence button on the front of the throttle quadrant. But you shouldn't normally hear the horn, as the gear should already be down with the flaps > 15 in a normal approach.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

Could be the flap motor sounds...perhaps the wav files are corrupt?There are three files...FlapMotorStart.wav, FlapMotorCont.wav, and FlapMotorStop.wav, all located in the aircraftfsfsconvpanel.b732adv folder.Could also be the gear horn sounding as a result of the throttles pulled back at low altitude while you're slowing and adding flaps...may not have anything to do with the flaps, in fact.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile
