Atc problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a problem while doing an ifr flight with the atc. When i tell my altitude well is not the same as the altimeter.

For exemple, my altitude is 2000 on the altimeter and it's my real altitude but i will tell the atc that i am at 6100 climbing to 7000. i already tried the b button for the altimeter but nothing.

Thank you

Do you have your settings set for inches of mercury or millibars?  Meters or feet? Make your setting for Indicated airspeed and not true airspeed.  Just some things to check.

Welcome to the AVSIM forums!:biggrin:

What aircraft are you using?  Are you sure you're not looking at your radar altimeter (instead of the barometric altimeter)?
