I assume that you mean the LEG statements ? The numbers are as follows......Departure airport elevationMinimum cruising altitudeArrival airport elevationMinimum terrain elevation during the flightMaximum cruising altitudeThe minimum cruising altitude should be set higher than the maximum terrain elevation over which the AI plane will fly. Of course, this can only be approximated (and the system certainly isn't perfect), but it reduces the chance of the AI plane flying THROUGH mountains !The maximum cruising altitude should be set to a sensible value, (4000-8000 feet, unless there are some REALLY high mountains around). Just don't ask a Cessna to climb to 50,000 feet ;-)
