What are they and what are the differences between the two. When are they used and why.
NYCPilot said:So if I understand this correctly, the reason behind assigning a "Trans" LVL or ALT is predicated upon the requirement for switching from 29.92 to local altimeter setting and vice versa. Basically assigning an altitude or flight level based on when to change over. Although, normally it is ALWAYS 18,000 in the U.S.
Going from FL's to MSL my Trans LVL is 180...(U.S.)
Going from MSL to FL my Trans ALT is 18,000...(U.S.)
Thanks for the replies and correct me if I'm wrong.
