Feature Request | Add "F" for Flight Level in Tags


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

In Real World on the Radar System when the aircraft is at a Flight Level there is an F before the Flight Level, so if the aircraft is FL60 it would be F60; Like the "A" for altitude in EuroScope, could we have the "F" for Flight Level?

 

Thanks,

Matthew M.

 

I guess this feature can be easily added, however it really depends on radar system and how it is displayed in each country.

In Real World on the British Radar System

 

 

This is very much controller specific.

 

Controllers in the Swanwick (Mil) control room operate with solely numbers (even for altitudes), eg 360 or 036. This is the same to most military air traffic systems.

 

IIRC from a Swanwick (Civ) controller, Mil and Civ rooms are the same systems, in that the military controller and civ controller see the same thing (just on different scale).

 

I know, that controllers can and often do setup their own displays for their session, so this may be a thing which a controller (or a team) regularly do when controlling a position (for example, EGCC_APP).

Kind Regards,

Kieran Cross,

Do you have any coding experience?

 

Is it an 'A' below transition or just an 'F' above?

 

You could adapt my code to make a simple plugin:

 

// Above transition, e.g. 12,950 feet
if (RadarTarget.GetPosition().GetFlightLevel() >= GetTransitionAltitude() - 50) {
snprintf(sItemString, 16, "F");
} else {
snprintf(sItemString, 16, "A");
}

Try learning on the internet, this could be a great yet simple project for you..

I did actually once tried to learn this code, but I couldn't do it. I don't like how C++ is, I prefer PHP

 

 

Well there's your problem, summed up in three short phrases.

 

once tried
I couldn't do it
I don't like how C++ is

 

Put some time and some effort in it, you might have learnt PHP, but that shouldn't affect your stance on C++ .

Kind Regards,

Kieran Cross,
