Altitude Clearance

Recommended Posts

I fly with P3Dv5.1 under Windows 10 and with FS2Crew and VOXATC. This question applies to both the Q400 and the PMDG 737 NGXu. Having entered a flightplan including a cruise altitude I am given altitude clearances from VOXATC - both during the climb and the descent. I then use FS2Crew, "Set FL XXX", to set the new altitude clearance in the autopilot.

Every now and again I get the response from FS2Crew: "Are you sure?"

I then have to set the new altitude manually. Is there any explanation for this?

Take a look at the green bar when you say it so you can see what the speech recognition is actually hearing.

It probably heard a number that was not what you think you said, a number that was out of range of the allowed values, like "Set Flight Level 990".

That's why it rejected the number.

Also, when you are the Pilot Flying and the autopilot is on, you as the PF would set the autopilot panel, not the PM.

Cheers,
