Landing Gear Warning Horn

Recommended Posts

On approach, as I'm reducing airspeed, I get a constant landing gear warning horn.On the Leonardo Sim MD80, there was a similar horn, that was triggered IIRC when the airspeed was below 210 knots, flaps were extended and the throttles were at idle. However, it could be silenced using the horn cutoff button on the throttle quadrant.In the MD11, the horn cutoff button doesn't seem to do anything, and the horn continues to sound until I lower the gear. Also, it sounds regardless of the throttle setting (I don't know if this is a difference between the Md80 and the MD11).Is there any way to silence this alarm without having to remove it entirely?

In the MD11 the aural warning "Landing Gear" is triggered if you extend more than 28deg of flaps with the gear up. I've also noticed that the horn silence button doesn't silence this caution. Maybe it's there for something else?Martin

If the Gear is not down and locked and flaps are greater than 28*, the horn can only be silenced by extending the gear.If any of the gears are not down, any throttle is at idle and airspeed less than 210 knots, flaps not in landing configuration and RA at 1,200 feet or below, the horn can be silenced.
