Descend and maintain 100 feet!??

Recommended Posts

I was flying from Prague to Munich last night and my first instruction was to go down to 100 feet! This was very odd and I've never had it happen before. Any ideas?Obviously, I had to close the program since I couldn't find a way to get out of that request.

I was flying from Prague to Munich last night and my first instruction was to go down to 100 feet! It's difficult to be sure without more information but you were probably instructed to "Descend FL100" which is spoken as "flight level one hundred". If you're an American - which your signature suggests - you're used to hearing altitudes in feet below 18000ft and so assumed the RC controller meant one hundred feet.If for some strange reason you were cleared to one hundred feet, the controller would have preceded the "one hundred" with the word "altitude". Try the same flight again and listen very carefully to check whether the words "flight level" or "altitude" are used in front of the "one hundred"BestPete

My CRZ altitude was 17,000 and the MSA at both airports was above 1000 feet. I'm at work, so I don't remember them exactly. I know for a fact the MSA and CRZ altitudes were set correctly in RC4 and FS. Also, I've been flying for a long time with MSFS and RC4, and I know for a fact the controller said "...One Hundred..." not FL100. He repeated it twice because it was a bogus instruction and I wanted to make sure that's what I heard.I can give a little more info when I get home perhaps.

better yet, follow the instructions at the top of the forum, and duplicate the problem with a log running, and then ship me the .log file, zippedjd
