This is the behaviour in the S92? What I'm familiar with, in a non-SAR Honeywell cockpit, when you arrive at, descend below, or climb above a preset altitude you just get a single beep and a visual warning. When you descend below a bugged radalt height you just get a light on the analog radalt display with no aural warning, or when you descend towards a set DH, which is referenced to the radalt (and not barometric altitude), you get MINIMA MINIMA aural warning, and a visual warning.
