Changing pressure in fs9 from inches to hectopascals

Recommended Posts

Guest Don Stone

I'm having a mental block on this. Somewhere, several months ago now, I read a post (I believe it was on this forum)on how to change millibars to hectopascals in Fs9. However, I cannot now remember how and despite a lot of searching I'm unable to find it again. Could someone please help. Thankyou in anticipation:-zhelp :-zhelp

First I heard that this was possible in FS9. I know that FSX has at last included pressure readings other than inches, but I don't think it's possible in FS9. Of course the advent of RC made things so much more realistic for folks outside the US in FS9 and FSX :-)

"I read a post (I believe it was on this forum)on how to change millibars to hectopascals in Fs9."Don,The answer is you don't need to change them as, for all practical purposes, they're the same thing - 1 millibar is equivalent to 1 hectopascal so there's no need for any conversion. As far as I know, it's only the UK that still uses the millibar as its unit of pressure with the rest of the world outside the US using the hectopascal but, whichever unit the pressure setting is expressed in - mB or hPa - it has exactly the same value.Pete

Hi Don,If you go to 'Options - settings - international' and change the 'units of measurement' option to metric it will change the cockpit display in things like the default lear from inches to mb.Some more advanced panels also allow you to change the setting.Hope this helps.All the best,John
