Retractable Undercarriage Endorsement

Retractable Undercarriage Endorsement

Get in to the fast lane with a retractable undercarriage endorsement!

High performance aircraft typically have an undercarriage system that retracts to reduce drag when not in the landing configuration. This course teaches you the concepts and practical application of operating an aircraft with this feature.

This course can also incorporate a Constant Speed Unit (CSU) Endorsement if you do not already hold one.

Course Outline

This is the standard layout used when a paragraph has a title.

  • Types of Undercarriage Systems
  • Limitations
  • Pre-Flight Considerations
  • Cockpit Controls & Indicators
  • Operating Procedures
  • General Aircraft Handling
  • Abnormal / Emergency Procedures
  • Circuits
If you do not currently hold a Constant Speed Unit (CSU) Endorsement additional training will be carried out:
  • CSU Principles of Operation
  • Pre-Flight Considerations
  • Cockpit Controls & Indicators
  • Power Settings & Limits
  • Before Take-off Checks
  • Procedures for Adding/Removing Power
  • CSU Malfunctions

At the completion of the course you will be issued with a Retractable Undercarriage (and CSU) design feature endorsement(s) in your logbook and be type checked to private hire our Beechcraft Debonair.
