There is a knob under the "radio" tab, it's next to where you set your squawk. It'll say something like "TA/RA". Turn it all the way to the right, and the planes will show up. I can't remember exactly right now, but after my next flight I'll let you know!-- Jake

Ahem.....the other half of that TA/RA knob couldn't be referring to "Radio Altitude" could it? And if it is, how on earth do you get it to read anything but -6? It makes the autolanding JUST a little rough.Mike

Ron, Okay, I just completed a flight. Click on the "COMM" tab, and you will see where you can set your squwak. To the right of that is a knob that will say "XPNDR...TA/RA, etc..". Just click that knob all the way to the right and the planes will show on your map. Doing this will make your transponder go to "normal", so turn it to the right before you enter the runway. Make sense?-- Jake

So, Phoenixers, does that /RA mean Radio Altitude? And if it does, how do you change it from -6? I suppose it really doesn't matter because I can do a lot smoother landing with that beast than the (lol) autoland can do anyway. I can set that honey down so smooth that the spoilers (yes, they're set), don't even get deployed.....but I would like to change the radio altitude to 0.
