Default beeping sound while in air

After taking off I had a beeping sound. Two beeps with increasing pitch and a short break after each sequence.


I have no idea what it is and how to disable. There's no warning light, I pressed all buttons to disable warning tones, I muted all volume switches, but the sound still remains. No mode was selected (AA/AG) and master arm off. No bingo fuel.



Any idea?

Whatever it says in your left DDI. That's where the ACAWS are displayed. Takeoff pitch maybe?

While I'm not truly sure what exactly you're hearing. I have heard from another person I fly with that they're having issues with the radar altimeter alert going off constantly and when it shouldn't.

Maybe that's what you're hearing.

The only one I can think of is (or i've always assumed it to be) a nav radio marker. Makes a racket for a couple of cycles as you pass over it and then stops. And you'll probably hear it again as you come into land and pass over it.

Probably the radar altimeter. It has happened that I took off and it kept going off even when I had climbed above its set floor. Just turn it off (floor needle to 0) and back on again.

+1 definitely the RA. Set it to 0 to disable it and leave it there. Except in bad weather with very bad viz I really don't need it.

Doesn't RadAlt only sound off once as you descend through the threshold altitude you've set though?
