I was practicing various types of takeoffs and lndgs, in preparation for an upcoming BFR. The problem arose because I was inconsistent in performing landing gear cyclings. When on the last landing approach, I was performing a combination of short and soft field techniques. I forgot that upon takeoff, I had raised the gear. My concentration was so focused on the landing technique that I overlooked the gear down chkout procedure. It's worth special note that I did not hear the gear up warning indicator horn (it must have been inoperative). The combination of my inattn and the lack of warning horn together caused the incident.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: GEAR UP LNDG.
Narrative: I WAS PRACTICING VARIOUS TYPES OF TKOFS AND LNDGS, IN PREPARATION FOR AN UPCOMING BFR. THE PROBLEM AROSE BECAUSE I WAS INCONSISTENT IN PERFORMING LNDG GEAR CYCLINGS. WHEN ON THE LAST LNDG APCH, I WAS PERFORMING A COMBINATION OF SHORT AND SOFT FIELD TECHNIQUES. I FORGOT THAT UPON TKOF, I HAD RAISED THE GEAR. MY CONCENTRATION WAS SO FOCUSED ON THE LNDG TECHNIQUE THAT I OVERLOOKED THE GEAR DOWN CHKOUT PROC. IT'S WORTH SPECIAL NOTE THAT I DID NOT HEAR THE GEAR UP WARNING INDICATOR HORN (IT MUST HAVE BEEN INOP). THE COMBINATION OF MY INATTN AND THE LACK OF WARNING HORN TOGETHER CAUSED THE INCIDENT.
