Rich,as far as I know it indicates the ground. In your case that would mean you are in the ground ;-)I guess your altimeter setting of 29.92 is wrong. You need to set it to the numbers given by ATC or ATIS.Hope I could help a bitBest regards

Thanks flying_eddie!What's odd though, is, I checked with ATIS and 29.92 was what was reported and what was set on the altimeter. I was stood on the runway at Lake Tahoe after completing the terrascene tutorial. Perhaps another factor is at play when the runway is at over 6000FT.Rich

More than likely it has to do with the Terrascened area. As a test, move the podded scenery out of the Fly folder and try again to see if this changes.

I tried it with the default scenery and there's no difference. How does the airplane know where the ground is anyway? Rich
