in the system must be taken to the local atmospheric pressure (ground) with zero airspeed.
If the display shows "Leak Measure", press LEAK MEASURE/CONTROL.
Press GROUND, (go to ground).
The pressure in the system changes towards ground. The ground pressure replaces the
static or altitude aim value; zero replaces the airspeed aim.
If required, new rates of change can be entered while going to ground.
Wait for the display to show zero airspeed and atmospheric pressure.
The display changes to "safe at ground" for 5 seconds then to "aircraft safe at ground"
with the message "confirming system settings .....".

operation automatically re-checks the ADTS controller settings,
the pumps start and the display shows:
No pressure is applied to the output ports during this operation.
When the airspeed is zero and the Ps channel pressure is close to ground, the
atmospheric pressure is re-measured to update the recorded ground pressure (QFE).
Press QUIT/CLEAR to continue with normal operation; the ground and zero valves
