I've read the AFM and looked online about the gear system for the PA-44 Seminole and there is apparently a squat switch on the right main gear that disables the stall warning whilst on the ground. However during my pre-flight I have tested the stall warning with the battery master and avionics master on and it worked.

Is the stall warning squat switch not a feature on the newer PA-44s any more? The one I train in is about a year old now.

Are you sure you're talking about the stall warning? I believe you're talking about the horn that activates when in the landing configuration with no gear down(e.g throttle retarded, flaps down).

The 44 has 2 electric stall warning tabs that won't be actuated on the ground.

    $\begingroup$ I think your answer is, "no, that aircraft never had a squat switch to disable the stall warning." Which seems to be exactly the answer the OP needs. This post was flagged as "not an answer," which I think is incorrect, although a more direct phrasing of the response may help avoid such flags in the future. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I agree, think it's clear a no was implied in the answer, I'll try to be more direct in the future, thanks $\endgroup$ Apr 11, 2019 at 2:24
