Setting Cabin Altitude

Recommended Posts

Setting Cabin altitude for the TinmouseII?

I am not clear on this based on the checklist and the manual. Not sure how it (cabin pressurization) works in the real aircraft either.

I am guessing it might be like this:

Is the CAB ALT set three times?

1. Before start set to current field elevation?

2. During climb reset to "desired" (e.g. 5000 or 7000 feet) CAB ALT for today's cruise 27000 or 35000 feet?

3. During descent reset to landing field altitude?

I set CAB ALT to the flight altitude and LAND ALT to the destination's altitude. During taxiing, I flick the switch from GRD to FLT and the system does everything automatically.

Thanks for the answer ...

 

"I set CAB ALT to the flight altitude"

CAB altitude does not go that high  .. Like FL370 ?

No, Bjoern meant he sets the cabin alt to the correct number depending on  cruising altitude....so between 5-7,000 feet sounds right.

Yes, that is a much better CAB ALT.

 

Dave, do you agree?

Read here about cabin altitude.

I'm just checking the TM in FSX.

 

There's a FLT ALT dial that's ought to be set to the cruise flight level. There's a CAB ALT dial to be set for the cabin altitude so that the pressure differential is not greater than 7.5. And then there's the LAND ALT dial, to be set to the desitnation airfield's alitude.

 

I simply forgot that CAB and FLT ALT are two distinct dials...

Bjoern,

 

No problem.

 

I understand.

 

Have a good flight.
