That is possilby a fualt in FS - just ignore what they say about it and you'll be fine. Wink

Check that your altimeter is set to the correct value Very Happy

Press 'B' to set it correctly Wink

A first thought is to hit ''B'' in order to correct your altimeter.

I agree. With all the downloads and add-ons we all get, we effectively build are own program. Hell, who needs microsft, lol!!

I also don't understand why MS include all these defualt aircraft - like Soar and Landmark Airlines.

They aren't even real airlines I don't think.

Why not include some real planes like BA, Virgin, Emirates etc...

They have to deal with all of these companies(and probably pay)in order to use them in FS.

What they should do is not wast resources on airliners that nobody ever flies, just include a couple of small props or something. Then they spend the money saved to improve the default scenery and ATC. Very Happy

Feel it is important to add when climbing to a flight level altimeter should read 1013.2mb or 29.92 inches of mercury.

Just a quick question. Does anyone know why America uses Inches of mercury and most of the rest of the world uses milibars??

I know it's easy these days to swap between the two but surely in the old days in would have been simpler to have a standard system??

to answer the poster's question.. it's an altimeter problem.. press "B" to correct this. (default barometric setting is 29.92)

Why not include some real planes like BA, Virgin, Emirates etc...

that would be nice.. but it's a legal issue.. they have to have contracts with these companies before they put their logo in a game...

microsoft had to go through enough getting contracted with Cessna, Beechcraft, Boeing, Piper, Jeppesen, etc..

for FSX, Microsoft picked up a new contract by adding the Airbus A321.. can't wait to see that one Very Happy

Oh hey! That's a great idea! And sheep too, that would be cool. Several different breeds of cows and sheep, so we could do some livestock spotting while we fly.

They can leave the pigs and goats for the next release.

Same reason they use pounds and ounces and so on. In other words, no rationally explainable reason, they just preferred it that way.

Americans are independent by nature, it's embedded from the roots of the country. American's don't change they way they are simply because "everyone else does it". The measurements used in America have been used for a very long time and they don't desire to "follow the heard" when the system they have works just fine. Smile

actually, a lot of americans are just too lazy and set in their ways to learn the metric system, which is the global standard these days. several years ago, the US government decided to adopt the metric system in order to be on par with the rest of the planet. the plan was abandoned when PEOPLE BEGAN PROTESTING IN THE STREETS.

ps i'm from new york - in case anybody thinks i'm "america bashing". just stating the facts. Confused

Oh, sure. I was just answering the question as asked. In reality, I don't think it matters much what units are used, as long as everyone understands them. The UK uses a weird hybrid, for example - most people prefer pounds and ounces, but everyone under about 35 was taught metric in school. Our food is sold in grammes, our distances measured in feet and miles.

One guy in the UK became known as the "metric martyr" - when new EU laws required him to sell his fruit and vegetables in metric, he refused. There's more to it than that, but I sort of feel this may not be the place to go into it Very Happy
