Mode 2A is active during climbout, cruise, and initial
approach (flaps not in the landing configuration and the
aircraft not on glideslope centerline). If the aircraft penetrates
the Mode 2A caution envelope, the aural message
"TERRAIN, TERRAIN" is generated and cockpit EGPWS
caution lights will illuminate. If the aircraft continues to
penetrate the envelope, the EGPWS warning lights will
illuminate and the aural warning message "PULL UP" is
repeated continuously until the warning envelope is exited.
Note: "Pull Up" may be preceded by "Whoop, Whoop" in
some configurations based on the audio menu option selected.
Upon exiting the warning envelope, if terrain clearance
continues to decrease, the aural message "TERRAIN" will be
given until the terrain clearance stops decreasing. In addition,
the visual alert will remain on until the aircraft has gained 300
feet of barometric altitude, 45 seconds has elapsed, or landing
flaps or the flap override switch is activated.
