during carrier operations, your best option is to divert to shore.
PRACTICE EXERCISE 1
The warning light in the LDG GEAR HANDLE will remain illuminated under the following two
(1) Any __________ __________ position disagrees with the handle.
(2) All __________ __________ are not up and locked with the handle up.

the delta pattern, and your wingman pulls alongside and verifies all gear down and locked. Your
AOA indexers are illuminated. Should you make a normal landing? (Y or N) __________
