Transition altitude and level PM call

Recommended Posts

Hello.

In the ngx version at transition altitude and at transition level I got the PM call to check the barometric pressur. In ngxu version I don' get these calls anymore. Is there a setting for this?

Thank You.

I have only used SOP 2 voice control so far. The FO has called transition altitude when appropriate every time.

SOP2. Yes, PM calls the transition, but I don't get the reading and the confirm of the barometric pressure, as was in the ngx version. I mean the cross check call.

Here is the manual version I found on internet.

Look for the following text: The PM will respond “STANDARD SET, PASSING XXXX ALTITUDE….. NOW!”

It is in the Transition Altitude section.

Actually in my ngx and ngxu manual versions I didn't find this call. However I got the call in my ngx version.

Regards.

Did you speak "SET STANDARD"?

That's the trigger.

 

It should go like this in Voice Control:

TRANSITION ALTITUDE:

▪ Passing the Transition Altitude (as defined in the PMDG FMC), the FO will call TRANSITION.

▪ Speak: “SET STANDARD”.

▪ The PM will respond “STANDARD SET, PASSING XXXX ALTITUDE….. NOW!”

▪ Speak: “CHECKED”.

▪ The PM should de-select Terrain on his display at 10,000 feet or the Transition Altitude, whichever is higher.

Thanks for the answer.

I use SOP2, only keyboard. In the ngx version after "SET STANDARD" call I press the button to set standard pressure. Then I heard from PM  “STANDARD SET, PASSING XXXX ALTITUDE….. NOW!". In ngxu version this doesn't happen anymore.

From the Button Control SOP 2 manual:

 

TRANSITION ALTITUDE:

▪ Passing the Transition Altitude (as defined in the PMDG FMC), the FO will call “TRANSITION”.

▪ Press the STD button on your EFIS panel.

▪ The FO should de-select Terrain on his display at 10,000 feet or the Transition Altitude, whichever is higher.

 

You pressed STD, right?

You need to press the STD button on your EFIS panel.

Sure, when I wrote "I press the button to set standard pressure" I meant I press STD button on EFIS panel. After that in ngx version I get the PM call “STANDARD SET, PASSING XXXX ALTITUDE….. NOW!"- In the ngxu version I dont 't hear that call anymore.
