Yorkie - FO transition callout metric issue

Recommended Posts

Hi Yorkie!

 

Long time no speak/write.

 

Just a quick one:

 

I set FSX settings to "Metric - Metres/Millbars" and Latitude & Longitude "Southern - Eastern" for Australia.

 

I've noticed that the Metric setting (at least for me) plays around with the FO and in particular his callout for transition.

 

eg: I've set the transition altitudes correctly (takeoff & descent forecast ) within the CDU/FMC (ie 10,000).

 

The FO doesn't call Transition Altitude until around 32,000ft. I've tested this 3 times now with the same result.

 

I've also uninstalled & reinstalled NGX & Emergency.

 

If I switch FSX back to "US System" FO callouts are AOK.

 

Any idea on what I can do to resolve this?

 

Thanks mate!

 

Steve

 

PS: I just got back into the NGX after a long foray with the 777. Can't wait for your 777 FO!

That's the problem.

 

You need to set it to Feet (US style).

 

Only Russians and Chinese use "meters" for altitude.  Everyone else uses feet.

Damn......always the simplest thing that is overlooked!

 

I'll give it a whirl!
