d. Landing With Nose Gear Unsafe. If the
LDG GEAR CONTROL warning light is illuminated
and the NOSE GEAR DOWN light shows an unsafe
condition, try to determine the position of the gear.
This may be accomplished by a tower flyby or any
other means available.
Do not attempt a MAIN GEAR DOWN,
NOSE GEAR UP landing on a grass/sod
runway, unprepared runway, or areas
adjacent to the runway.
1. Fuel load Reduce.
3. Loose equipment Stow/secure.
4. BLEED AIR VALVES ENVIR OFF
(below 10,000 feet).
5. Cabin pressure switch DUMP (after
cabin has depressurized).
Prior to removing the emergency exit
(approximately 160 KIAS or below) and
ensure passengers are seated with seat
belts fastened and all loose equipment
6. Emergency exit hatch Remove and
7. Seat belts and harnesses Fasten.
8. Extension handle Stow.
9. LDG GEAR CONTROL DN.
10. LANDING GEAR RELAY circuit breaker
11. LANDING GEAR WARN horn circuit
Make a normal approach but hold the nose
up as long as possible after touchdown,
then ease the nose gently to the runway
Preventing a sudden drop will minimize
structural damage. Use rudder and brakes
for directional control. Do not use brakes
until the nose is on the runway.
Landing light may not be usable with nose
gear in unsafe condition.
12. Before landing checklist Complete.

17. MASTER SWITCH OFF.
If landing is to be performed at night, the
pilot may elect to turn on the baggage
compartment light or other cabin lighting
to assist in aircraft evacuation. If cabin
lighting is desired, leave the MASTER
SWITCH ON. The baggage compartment
light is wired directly to the battery and will
illuminate with the MASTER SWITCH OFF.
e. Landing With One Main Gear Unsafe. If
one main landing gear fails to extend, retract the other
gear and make a gear-up landing. If the gear cannot
be retracted, land the aircraft on a hard surface
runway, touching down on the same edge of the
runway as the extended gear. Roll on the down and
locked gear, holding the opposite wing up and the
nose wheel straight as long as possible. If the gear
has extended, but is unsafe, apply brakes lightly on
the unsafe side to assist in locking the gear. If the
gear has not extended or does not lock, allow the wing
to lower slowly to the runway. Use the following
1. Retract gear and make a GEAR UP
