Descend and Maintain....

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys corrently flying with RC4 and instructed to descend to an altitude, when I get to the requested altitude I still get told to descend to the altitude I'm at causing me to 'bust' my altitude even though my instruments and QNH is all set correctly..... any thoughts?>

Are you sure it was an altitude and not a Flight Level? What is your destination airport?

It's probably the most common mistake so don't worry. The Transition Altitude at LFAT is 5000ft so anything above that is a Flight Level.

All TAs are in m4.csv but only open it with Notepad or Notepad++.
