Oh, for crying out loud, is this for real? It's in meters and its AGL (above ground level)

Next topic please.

I might be wrong but the red indicator is asl & the dial is agl

& I think it is funky Meters /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If course none of them is AGL. Fly straight and level over a mountain landscape and watch it, or better yet read the gauge while firmly on the ground in a high alt airfield.

I think none of them is AGL.I'm still struggling with the altimeter in the Jug. I'll never be ble to red it correctly , I mean in meters which is the system I'm used with.

AGL - above ground level
ASL - above sea level

Note, it's 'metres', not 'meters' /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

That is all.

AGL = Above ground level
ASL = Above sea level.

AGL was pretty hard to measure then because they needed a reference. So they took sea level as level 0. Once you have this refference is more easy. Why I'm saying everything is ASL is because on some airfields you'll see the speed bar indicating 50 , or 100 as altitude.

I think the altimeter with cockpit off gives AGL...

...but I'm not sure since I haven't flown that way in quite a while.

Should be AGL in meters. You could verify if flying above mountainous terrain.

============================
When it comes to testing new aircraft or determining maximum performance, pilots like to talk about "pushing the envelope." They're talking about a two dimensional model: the bottom is zero altitude, the ground; the left is zero speed; the top is max altitude; and the right, maximum velocity, of course. So, the pilots are pushing that upper-right-hand corner of the envelope. What everybody tries not to dwell on is that that's where the postage gets canceled, too.

It is going to be ASL. There is no way for a simple altimiter to know what the terrain elevation is below it so it will not be albe to tell you AGL. P

rior to take off a pilot finds out the correct barometric pressure from the weather guys and sets it. Or..if he knows the exact altitude of his airfield he sets the altimeter to that height.

At least that is how I used to do it when I was flying small planmes.

It gets worse-
1 US Pint = 7/8ths of a UK Pint
same ratio for a Gallon
1 US Billion = 1,000 million UK
1 Billion UK = 1,000 billion in US
Pants in US = trousers in UK
F@nny in US= Arse in UK
F@nny in UK is off topic............
