AA717driver said:Yeah, you typically test it by standing under the door while talking to someone in cockpit on the headset. You firmly hold the door closed while instructing the guy in the cockpit to lift the guard on the switch and push and hold the switch.
AND... As you are being driven into the concrete you scream--"That AA717driver is a real a$$hole!" TC
P.S.--Hopefully, you will go your entire career without ever having to use or inadvertantly deploying the RAT.
We deploy ours as part of a yearly inspection. Once it's out, its out. And once it's out it's best to break out the David Clarks or Bose headsets because on the Challengers and Global it sounds like someone is running a Cox 049 engine in the cockpit.
