In the piper arrow that I fly the gears would come down automatically when the speed is low enough (unless I override it).A feature like that would have saved the day.Jason

CRINGE!!!!a DPE at the airport I learned out of in florida was with a student and geared up a piper seminole, totaling both engines. He cried in the cockpit... I can totally understand it, and I would be interested to see the next 5 minutes of video...thanks for the share

I know this is a little late, but yes, you can disable this feature. I do it all the time with the Arrows I fly while practicing slow flight and power-on stalls. I always turn it back on, though, when I'm done. I also check my gear on base and final, too.
