Today we’ll be looking at Emergency Gravity Gear Extension Handle! The Emergency Gravity Gear Extension Handle provides landing gear extension in the event of electrical, hydraulic, or mechanical failure. OPERATION - To put the landing gear down by gravity, the crew must pull the emergency gear extension handle out then turn it clockwise for three turns. When the flight crew operates the emergency gear extension handle, the cutoff valve shuts off hydraulics to the landing gear system and depressurizes it. This allows the landing gear to fall free to the down lock position by gravity. But see how it's done in the video! Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video! Wishing you all the best! Your "Captain" Joe Big thank you to all other youtubers who provided me with the video material to create this video. Your content is highly appreciated.

LG isn’t held up with hydraulics once retracted, the uplocks do that - they were designed back in the day to hold the weight of the bogie gear so they have reserve strength for twin wheel gear. The MLG and NLG is pressurised down but it moves faster than the fluid so they vacuum a little bit as they move - this is why you need the vent valve if you have NO pressure The reservoir volume change happens due to the rod area volume, because A320 retracts with the full area chamber it has higher fluid level on ground than in flight. Other aircraft like A330 which retract with the annular rod end area are the opposite - the reservoir level is higher in flight than on ground.

i am not a pilot but love flight simulation. tried for weeks to understand x plane 11 but could never succeed. fms is too confusing and finding proper way points also i can't find sometimes and when i do.. when enter into fms it show some other options which i can't understand. Any who faced a problem like this knows solution? like any dedicated discord server where i can clarify doubts or some super fantastic tutorial series?Plz. help

Captain... Let it go now you can do it...yes it's just an Airbus, you need to pick yourself up and commit to Boeing planes now.
Chris 3.1416 (20 days ago)
I always worry that the tires would go flat, they look so small compared to the size of the plane. Why not keep the landing gear on all the time? It would eliminate this very scary problem. The hell with aerodynamics and fuel waste.

The landing gears have shock absorbers.
bzacon (23 days ago)
Every time I learn something about an Airbus, it makes me want to make sure I never get in another one. What kind of dumbshit makes the hydraulic system cutoff irreversible? once the landing gear is deployed, wouldn't any reasonable pilot want to restore the use of that circuit for steering and other functions? what if there is also a problem with the yellow circuit? you have to choose between landing gear or not falling out of the sky?
Taisei Murakami (24 days ago)
What happens when have your rudder to the left while your wheel turning the other side?
wamX0Productions (24 days ago)
So what happens if the landing gear fails to retract or simply punches it's way through the door while in the air? This is my 3rd flight in 3 consecutive weeks where something has resulted in priority landing or a pan-pan (not a pilot, but want to be) be it medical emergency, Engine related RTO, and now L/G mechanical problems. Just how common are problems like this, or am I cursed?

I remember during my training in an Antinov225 over Russia the altitude control developed a malfunction due to erroneous data. We soon found ourselves 3000 feet outside the ionosphere. Fortunately I’m an incredible pilot with knowledge of every single system and electronic component. I requested the cabin crew to quickly bring me another controller board and swapped it out 45 seconds before total oxygen exhaustion. I finally brought us down to Lhasa in Tibetan airspace and landed in the carpark of a local carpet trader

Question about landing gear... What happens if you push back an airplane without putting the pin on the nose gear? Is it possible to do it if you inform the pilot that the pin is not installed?

Question to Captain Joe and other pilots. The cloud base altitudes in metars, are they above ground, or above mean sealevel?
Marc van der Linden (24 days ago)
@Mike P Ok never knew that until it came along in the VASaviation about the helicopter crash with Kobi Bryant in LA. Heli flew special VFR at 1400 ft MSL and metar reported cloudbase at 11 feet. So I concluded that the heli flew in, or above the clouds, which I was corrected on. So something learned here! Tnx.
Mike P (24 days ago)
Above ground level (AGL).

Once you have manually released the gear ,can you go back to normal operation by turning the lever to the opposit 3 times ?
the bunker parodie (26 days ago)
I don't know if you'll read this,but in your airbus 380 vs boeing 747 ,you could have said that boeing studied double deck variant of the 747 (and even twin fuselage one). I wonder if you're a modeler since in some of your background,I can see some liner model (I started my collection by finishing my boeing 747 8F from cargolux base on boeing concept,the base is the revell model and I got to sand all the bad paint job I did before and a lot of work to do on the engine ;this wee kend I order one 747 100 for a 747 concept and a 8F from UPS also base on boeing concept model)
PeachesCourage (26 days ago)
I'm picturing Toyota using the extra electricity from movement for magnetic drop if in an emergency landing? Fields need to come from the plane to cushion your landing potentially big job though? If it can happen? Toyota did this with it's cars can' an airplane to soften an emergency landing?

Flightpath (27 days ago)
I always wanted to know who is the captain in newly released aircraft for example the 777x since there are only a few people with a reliable amount of experience after getting a type rating. This has confused me for a while now and there is no answer that I could find. I would really appreciate if you can explain in some context this uncommon situation.
Vincent Mccormick (27 days ago)
Would anything happen if you raised the landing gear while accelorating to take off would the front wheel fold up or is there safety features on this
Vincent Mccormick (27 days ago)
@Mike P ok thanks i gathered there woukd be just one if those what if kind of things i doubt any1 would be that stupid to do it anyway but ya never know thanks for the reply anyway
Mike P (27 days ago)
The landing gear can't be retracted when the aircraft is on the ground. There is a sensor which senses that the aircraft is on the ground.

Hi, I’ve always wanted to be a pilot since I can remember and I was just wondering if you have to go to university to be a pilot and what grades do you have to achieve??🙂👍
Henry Freeman Hank’s Detailing (28 days ago)
Mike P ah ok thanks for the clarification.
Mike P (28 days ago)
@Henry Freeman Hank’s Detailing - Of course you need a pilot licence. The high school diploma is the basic education level needed for the airline pilots, after that you must have the flight training to get the pilot licence. You need to have a commercial pilot licence with multi engine and instrument rating, and you have to complete the written test for the Airline Transport Pilot Licence. You also may need the Multi Crew Coordination Course, and Jet Orientation Course. But when you have your commercial pilot licence you can apply for a job at an airline if you have a high school diploma, because the airlines in Europe require that you have graduated from high school.
Henry Freeman Hank’s Detailing (28 days ago)
Mike P shit that’s kinda scary. What training do they need?! I thought you need a pilots license?!
Jojomojo 288 (28 days ago)
Thank you, that really helps
Mike P (28 days ago)
In Europe it's not mandatory to have a college degree to become a pilot, you can become an airline pilot when you have a high school diploma.
Clzys (29 days ago)
Why are you calling yourself “Captain Joe” when your a first officer? The reason why I know is because: 1. your sitting on the right seat in the cockpit, 2. You only have 3 stripes on your epaulets. And 3. The Q/A about the most frequent asked questions about airline pilots, you answered half of them wrong.... so please explain that.
Mike P (28 days ago)
Joe began to fly in 2005 and in 2010 he started to fly the A320, so he already seems to have experience.
Clzys (28 days ago)
Mike P lmao
Mike P (28 days ago)
"They’re obviously not experienced pilots" That was hilarious.
Clzys (28 days ago)
pirozig zigwam sure then, my dad is the captain of the B737 so you can’t talk. 1. Chemtrails aren’t a thing they”re a conspiracy theory. 2. Passengers aren’t allowed to land the plane. 3. Passengers can’t go into the cockpit when the plane is airborne and tons more. They’re obviously not experienced pilots. So.... explain that please. Oh and btw I never said I was a pilot, I just know more things than you do about aviation.
pirozig zigwam (29 days ago)
Clzys what did he answer wrong then I’m a pilot and he was pretty spot on actually Are u a pilot No? What a surprise
MattCProductions (29 days ago)
So are tools like this tested every so often? After a given amount of time, a landing must be performed using this system to ensure it is working properly?
Steven Mayhew (29 days ago)
One thing I realized as an airline passenger: I have witnessed by watching the wing mechanics how pilots routinely test all the flight and other systems just to make sure that the plane is still flightworthy. That's a safety precaution. However, the only mechanics which pilots can never test while still aground are the landing gears themselves. The reason: they bear the weight of the airplane and therefore have to remain deployed until takeoff. But once airborne, if a mechanical failure does occur during attempted retraction or deployment, tough luck! I saw on the news how it happens to airliners and private planes alike.
Mels Lenstra (28 days ago)
The gear is visually inspected for abnormalities or obstructions by the pilots before each flight though. And I believe the whole airplane is placed onto support structures during periodic maintenance so that the landing gear can be serviced and tested thoroughly. This obviously wouldn’t be feasible to do before each flight. Compared to flight control surfaces, a gear failure is much less likely to lead to death or serious injury. Pilots are well trained on how to perform gear-up landings and many airports have the equipment to spray a layer of foam onto the runway before the plane lands to prevent fire.

Can't you use independent thrust to steer the plane even if landing hidraulics are off?
Paulo Macedo (25 days ago)
@Yakov Dlougach yeah and I forgot that the plane's wheels might not turn if hidraulics are dead...
Yakov Dlougach (28 days ago)
I would expect you can still do differential braking and steering with rudder (like on small planes), but the radius of the turn would be too big.
Michael Amare (30 days ago)
Hey Joe. Can you please make a video which explains about Boeing Dream lifter because, the front of the aircraft looks like 747. Did they (Boeing) change one of the B-747 families to Dream lifter or are they two different aircrafts? Also your videos are absolutely fantastic Joe & they are very helpful to get information related with aviation. They helped me lot to know about aviation🛫. Keep it up Captain! Wishing you all the best.
