I found a little bug I think

Recommended Posts

Hi bryan,Wow Fs2crew is wonderful. I only fly the ATR now. But I think that I have found a little bug. I use to load the ATR in Mauritius Island of course I load it after loading the cessna, "the ICAO name for the Airport is FIMP" Mauritius is an Island in the south emisphere an in the east of the GMT line. Well here is a little bug I think, you've state in one of the features list that when flying outside the US or Canada, the altimeters are read back using millibars, kilograms are used instead of pounds, but when I load the ATR in mauritius the CA/FO read back the altimeters in Hg and read back the fuel in pounds.Please have a look, as in mauritius we use kilograms and not poundsThanks for the wonderful progam

Hello Fredo,Thank you for the kind words. I'm happy to hear you're enjoying the software :-)What determines whether FS2Crew will use use Pounds or Kilos, etc., is the Transition Level set in the FMC.If the Transition Level is set to 18,000, FS2Crew assumes you are in North America, and uses HG and Pounds.If the Transition Level is set to anything other than 18,000 FS2Crew assumes you are outside of North America, and MB and Kilos are used.(P.S. If any of you are from Canuckistan, I know Kilos are sort of used so I'll beat you to the punch there).Cheers,Bryan

Hi bryan,Thank you for the rapid reply. Ok I see. But I think in mauritius they use 18000 as Transition altitude. It's a pilot that did tell me that. But I will check it. But if this is the case, I won't be able to do anything about the read back. But is there not a way to program the logic to read the instrument setting as set in the fs menu instead.thanks

Let me know what you find out. As far as I know North America is the only place with an 18,000' TA, but I could be wrong.Bryan

I was wrong, the TA for mauritius is 6000ft, so its ok then. Sorry for that.
