Should setting MINS to 3600ft BARO really take about 6 ...

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I needed to set BARO MINS to 3850 ft for the Queenstown CHARLIE VOR approach and found it took a very long time. Holding the mouse button pressed on the MINS rotating knob adjusts the setting at a rate of about 100 ft every 10 seconds. To increase the setting by, say, 3600 feet would therefore take about six minutes. Is there another way of doing this - apart from using RADIO instead of BARO :-)ThanksGeoff

Geoff- Holding down RIGHT mouse button speeds up the process- but it IS slow isn't it. On the 737, holding down the right button, I set MINS from zero to 3600 ft in about 35 secs. With the 747 (FS9) I could go full range (-100 to 32760) in 10 secs.Alex Reid
