High performance aircraft typically have an undercarriage system that retracts into the aircraft fuselage to reduce drag when not in the landing configuration. Less drag on the aircraft in flight allows for higher speeds and reduced fuel consumption. This course teaches you the concepts and practical application of operating an aircraft with this feature.

The operation of this system requires a special design feature endorsement known as the retractable undercarriage endorsement.

Training will include:

  • Types of Undercarriage Systems
  • Limitations
  • Pre-Flight Considerations
  • Cockpit Controls & Indicators
  • Operating Procedures
  • General Aircraft Handling
  • Abnormal / Emergency Procedures
  • Circuits

Pilots will usually complete the retractable undercarriage endorsement at the same time as their initial multi-engine endorsement training, but it can also be attained stand-alone.
