5.2. Standard Calls

Some standard calls apply primarily during the arrival phase. These are described in the following paragraphs:

  1. Flaps to Approach - Setting To initiate the setting of flaps to the Approach setting, the PF uses the standard call "Flaps Approach". For other than during the Before Landing Check, the PNF responds by selecting the flaps to the Approach setting and saying "Flaps Approach Selected." When the flaps have travelled to the Approach setting, the PNF should call "Flaps Approach Set." The responses during the Before Landing Check are discussed in the relevant section.
  2. Flaps to Take-off Setting - To initiate the setting of flaps to the Take-off setting, the PF uses the standard call "Flaps Take-off". The PNF responds by selecting the flaps to the Take-off setting and saying "Flaps Take-off Selected." When the flaps have travelled to the Take-off setting the PNF should call "Flaps Take-off Set."
  3. Flaps to Fully Extended Setting - To initiate the setting of flaps to the Full setting, the PF uses the standard call "Flaps Full". For other than during the Final Landing Check, the PNF responds by selecting the flaps to the Full setting and saying "Flaps Full Selected." When the flaps have travelled to the Full setting the PNF should call "Flaps Take-off Set." The responses during the Final Landing Check are discussed in the relevant section.
  4. Landing Gear Extension - Landing Gear Extension is normally initiated by calling for the before landing check. To initiate the extension of the landing gear when it is inappropriate to complete the Before Landing Check, the PF calls "Gear Down". The PNF responds by selecting the Landing Gear Lever down and saying "Gear Down." Once the Landing Gear is down and locked the PNF should call "Gear Down and Locked."
