Altitude

Recommended Posts

How do i check my altitude? I read somewhere that the shown altitude on the monitor and dials are most the time inaccurate. I feel the same coz i start to stall at 13,000 feet. Im flying a downloaded b777. im not sure if this is related but when i request flight following, for whatever reason its for, i get a report saying something about Flight Level 329. does this have anything to do with altitude?I dont know most of flying procedures and I usually fly around navigating only using the GPS thingie. Weee~

Hi NightShadow and welcome,Make sure that your sim is configured for feet and not meters. Somewhere in one of the menus is an option for this. I seem to recall some wording about "International."If you are at 13,000 meters and think it is 13,000 feet I can see that neing a problem. Also insure that you have selected the Use Indicated Airspeed option under the Aircraft > Rralism menu. Using True Airspeed is a common cause of stall problems but it happens at altitudes greater than 13,000 feet. R-
