Radar altimeter

Recommended Posts

Where is the radar altimeter in the ATR? I know about the normal and the standby altimeter, but I can find no mention of the radar altimeter in the ATR manual. My FO has reminded me to set it on both flights but I guess I don't know where to find and set it.

Hi BillYou don't set the radar altimeter - I was also confused by this at first - What your FO needs you to do is to set your DH (Also refered to as Radar Decision height), the conprol is located on your EFIS Control panel.:)

Thanks, Lars. I was going nuts trying to find the radar altimeter. I was about ready to look in the lavatory.
