Radio Communications – UAL 816

What’s everyone!

Supposedly, you are having a gear problem (say, not sure whether it’s down and locked), what would your actions be and what would you request from ATC? The following piece suggests an example of a similar situation.

There’s no quiz today as the audio is pretty simple. Find the trascript below, as usual. And more radio communication practice activities at Radio Communication Practice Course and the Ultimate Radiocom Quiz.
