If an airport and/or runway (i.e. New runway construction) is not listed in current database. Pressing the PB will inhibit unwanted EPGWS warnings and Terrain Alerts.
What is the Ground PROX Flap Override PB used for?
Inhibits normal alerts for non standard flap settings due to QRH procedures needing flaps different than landing flap settings
There are two items to accomplish to extend the landing alternatively. What are they and describe what occurs.
Electrical override extension- bypasses the gear selector to electronically override the PSEM to lower the gear.
Alternate Gear Extension Handle- relieves all hydraulic pressure in the landing gear system and releases the up locks to allow for Gravity free fall.
