Altitude Alert sound for 757?

Recommended Posts

I do not hear an altitude alert sound in the 757, v1.2. Is this missing on purpose or is there something wrong? I set an alt, the aircraft is in either VNAV or alt change mode, and no sound is played when approaching that set altitude. Im pretty sure all aircraft have some soundThanks

This is a customer option that is not included with the PSS version.I though this was an error first off, but after some investigation, a fair number of airlines don't have the altitude alert (other than when deviating from the planned altitude). A lot of pilots see it as a distraction. I guess it makes sense in these days of glass cockpits where lights should be out and no alert sounds should be herd if everything is going normal.

Hello Alex,Phil has the correct answer.This sound "issue" was debated vigorously with a real world (and current) B757 captain flying for a UK carrier.regards,
