Nose Gear Retracted, Both Main Gear Down and Locked
This is a work in progress
Nose landing gear not down and locked.
- Nosewheel Steering: Unavailable.
- If contamination of the uplocks due to ice and snow is suspected:
- Consider flying to an area to enable melting.
- If gear is fully retracted:
- Attempt to release from uplocks by applying positive ’g’ loading not to exceed 2.5g (flaps up).
- If gear is partially extended, but not locked down:
- Plan a normal approach to a firm main landing gear touchdown immediately followed by go-around to jolt nose gear down and locked.
- If nose gear is not confirmed down and locked, begin the following landing procedure:
- Runway . . . Select longest available
- Ldg Gear Horn (TSC/Aural Inhibits/ TAWS) . . . Inhibit
- Normal Approach and Landing . . . Conduct
- Touchdown . . . Runway centerline
- Airplane Nose . . . Control descent onto runway
- Wheel Brakes Use minimum acceptable
- Directional control and stopping:
- Refer to 04-19-50, Emergency Airplane Evacuation.
(1) Airspeed . . . Maintain VREF +10 KCAS
(2) POWER LEVERS . . . Maintain above idle
(3) At Main Gear Touchdown
(a) Pitch Attitude . . . Maintain landing attitude
(b) Go-Around . . . Execute
After airplane nose gear contacts runway, weight can be relieved with aft stick and nose up trim.
(1) Rudder and Differential Brakes . . . Use
