Quick AFCAD question...

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the pattern altitude in the runway section of AFCAD is measured in AGL or MSL? I'm trying to redo KCHD, and it has the wrong altitude in the box (it has 1200. It should be 2200 MSL). Or doesn't it even matter?Thanks! - Paul

It's given in the help file:"The published pattern (circuit) altitude, AGL. AI will fly practice circuits at this altitude."

As the other post indicates, it is AGL.Check to see if you are working in feet or meters (the Tools / Options menu).That will obviously make a considerable difference to the numbers displayed.Edit that default figure with caution as it may cause strange behavior of arriving AI aircraft such as "fly-overs" if it is set too high.
