Rat retraction

Recommended Posts

Hi today I was in route to kphl and my kid by mistake opend the ram air turbine and press the switch. I land the apple at kphl and park. I open the maintenance page on the fms but there is no function to retract the ram air turbine. Can some one please tell me were in the maintenance section is that function. All I see is refill hyd fluid, refill engine oil, service apu scd motor, refill fire bottles, and on the second pg cool brakes, replaced brakes, and replaced tires. But there is no ram air turbine retraction.

So I'm really need some help on how to do it .

It will be on the overhead panel, you will see the button for the RAM.

 

He wants to retract it, not deploy it.

 

Retract should be under FMC options.  Cant remember exactly where.

FMC -  PMDG SETUP - AIRCRAFT - FAILURES

 

Click on active failure  -  It will be on 'Doors RAT DEPLOYED'

 

Clear the failure, RAT will be stowed.

It's listed as a failure since RAT deployment implies something really bad has happened, it's certainly not regular maintenance like filling hyd or replacing tires.
