Firstly I rather doubt that PSS will update the A319/A320/A321 panel or the A330/A340 panel. Secondly, as ther eis a methyod within FS to change from imperial to metric there is no reason for PSS to go to the trouble and expense of coding, testing etc something that is really not necessary. To get metric figures go to the FS Options menu, then select Settings, then International and in the Units of Measure select "Metric (altimeter in feet)".

Oh yes I see the problem. Hadn't thought of that. There must be something out there that does this as an add-on. I'll do some searching.

What was being asked here was not the loading, fuel and MCDU being set and monitored on the MCDU in kilos or metric tonnes. That of course has been there since day one of the A320 family with the metric load and fuel config utilities and the small change in FS I described above (a long time ago - funny how threads re-surface). Unless I misunderstood the poster what was being asked was whether there could be a button on the FCU to change the altitude and V/S to metres rather than feet. The real world versions do have this as an option but it's not available for us.In view of this when I fly into Russian airspace I use a metric levelling system chart available from VATRUS at http://www.vatrus.net.ru/services/fl.xhtml Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
