Hello everyone! This question training series is to help myself, as well as others, better understand the flight procedures that we must follow when in the Expert Server. The rules in the Expert Server are there to help create the most realistic flight environment. So understanding these rules is crucial in order to keep the Expert Server the way it was intended to be. Here is today’s question:
When do you turn off the seatbelt sign after takeoff? Do you do this at a certain altitude? Or do you do this once you reach a certain speed? Or do you do this based off of something else?
Note: This question is not regarding turbulence or other factors. If you were flying in perfect weather conditions, how would you answer this question?
Some airlines tell pilots to turn off the seatbelt sign as soon as cruising altitude is reached. However, other airlines tell the pilots that they can turn it off at 10,000 or 18,000ft. It really all depends on the airline.
I hope this answers your question! Have a lovely day!
Like others explained. It is depending on the airline some airlines turn the seatbelt sign off when reaching 10,000 feet or 18,000 as stated before and sometimes it’s used for flight attendants to let them know that they reach their cruising altitude and can perform their duties
