747 transition altitude setting

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'd like to know how to enter the transition altitude for the destination airport. In the VNAV descent forecast page there is an option to set the transition level, but that's not what I'm looking for.So, how do I set the transition altitude for my destination?

This is fine but it does not seem to change the altitutes to FLs once I reset the TL to FL60 for EGLL. The LEGS page still shows all verticals as altitudes below FL180 (US setting) when I want FLs to FL70 then feet.On other models the VNAV desc page had it and it was changeable, the -400 doesn't have it...
