Default waypoint altitude of FL280

Recommended Posts

Carenado has a sale going, so I finally joined the ranks of Beech Premier owners, hey, for $11 I figured I would take the chance (FSX version).

So far I am cautiously okay with the plane, though I haven't flown much yet. One question that I didn't see on this forum yet: The FMS defaults the altitude of all waypoints in a flight plan to FL280, except for the SID and STAR waypoints. Is there a way to override that or change them collectively? Or can I safely ignore those altitudes and just use the altitude window on the autopilot panel? It's just a bit of a drag to always change them one by one.

I don't think there is a way to just change them all at once. Wouldn't hurt for them to add a cruise level setting, huh?

One thing I do wonder is: Do you have to change them to your actual Cruise Level to see a Top of Descent?

I've never seen one and I wouldn't even know where to look.

Mmmmmm thanks for the answer, I was afraid of that...

I can't imagine the real Collins system doesn't have a Cruise Altitude function.

I'll do a little more experimenting with altitude and TOD, if I find anything interesting I will let you know.
