Since we’ve been flying quite a lot within the Chinese airspace lately, I think this would be a great thing to share. I’ll now use this whenever I’m flying within the Chinese Mainland (excluding HK, MC, and TW) airspace.
If y’all check on FR24 all aircraft within the Chinese airspace fly at those FLs!
I mean in real life, it is also a chaos. Say Delta Airlines DL129 Seattle-Beijing. They do get confused sometimes as well, especially when the traffic in PEK is very busy. When they are confused by meters, the tower just instead tell them descend to FL250.
Also, it is a good idea to make it hard, and you as the controller in expert server can ghost more users. In another request, people say the rules in expert server aren’t strict enough. Metric and imperial unit conversion is a good way to kick some of the not-fully-trained pilots back to the training server.
Turning these regions into metre RVSM does make the game more realistic. My point is that it will cause confusion for pilots, and even controllers. Remember, the purpose of ghosting is not punishing, but a lesson for pilots to learn. Strict rules do have benefits, but its disadvantages are obvious as well. I personally don’t agree with changing the unit in certain regions, but I will listen to your advice as well. Thanks for discussing!
Interesting! So then the system of flying at odd FL in feet 1 degree to 180 and even FL 181 to 360 goes out with the metric system; or do pilots fly at 10668 mts when they need to be at FL53 for example?
So wait, it seems like they are doing it terribly inefficiently. Reading it out in Meters, and converting to feet for all aircraft? They eaven mention how that means aircraft will always be at a sum what inaccurate altitude… 🤔
