"Bad Format" Radio Alt.

Recommended Posts

Hello:

 

Trying to enter 2574' per the DA RNAV RY33 at SBKP.

 

When I enter that value, the FMSG says "Bad Format"

 

Thanks.

I'll have to double check, but I believe the Radio Altimeter doesn't work above 2500ft, AND the 2574ft is for Decision Altitude (DA) which is also Barometric Pressure, not the Decision Height (DH) which is used for the Radio Altimeter entry.  The Decision Height (Radio Altimeter) for that approach is 404ft.

 

That should solve this for you my friend.  Keep in mind the difference between DA and DH when looking at Approach Plates!

 

Best wishes.
