QNH problem

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

With STD pressure setting set if you accidently press the B key it sets the local airport presure (away from 1013/2992) but the QNH knob still shows STD , i was flying back from EGPH to EGKK in the EZY jet A320 when a mate said i was 400 feet too high when level at FL370,.. i managed to get it back to normal but this could cause issues when flying online with ATC (was on uni at the time) .... is there a way to disable the B key once on STD mode?

 

Thanks

Rich

now the problem .... pressing the B key reverts to the airport pressure setting note the alt but the knob still says STD, This could cause problems with ATC due to  wrong pressure settings online and how would you know if it says STD?

Hello!  Thanks for your input.

 

You'll always have to select Standard or a specific pressure value yourself.  The "B" key is a shortcut (which as I'm sure you know doesn't exist in the actual aircraft) and we won't be coding it to also change the system from standard to a specific value when the B key is pressed on the keyboard.  That would require polling the switch positon, then deciding if Standard should remain (based on Altitude) or changed to a specific value, and then making that change.  All of that adds to the ever growing CPU cycles and that has a direct impact on frame rates.  We are in the process of making additional changes to the flight deck so we need to make these decision in a economic manner to insure that frame rates remain on the positive side.

 

Many thanks for your input, while this suggestion isn't something we might not wish to do (at least not until the flight deck is fully set), we still have open ears!

 

Best wishes my friend.
