As our International Operations expand,
do you understand
Transition Level vs. Transition Altitude
?

____________________________________________________

Do you know the difference?

Do you include this in your briefing?

In the US it is the same for both, 18,000' & FL180.

In many other countries it is different, and quite low.

Port of Spain (TTPS) is a good example.

Transition Level is: FL55
Transition Altitude is : 4100'

So here's the question to ponder:

If you depart TTPS and you are cleared to 4100',
when do you set standard, prior to 4100', or after
climbing thru 4100' ?


Do you really understand QNH vs. QNE?

For extra credit:
What does the "Q" mean?
