    RA altitude PFD

    Hi,

    When I am on ground the PFD RA altitude shows that I am 7 feet above the
    ground. Is it supposed to show that?

    If not, how can I fix it ?

    Best Regard

    RA altitude PFD

    Hi Tom,
    it is set in your Aircraft txt file for CDU:
    i.e.
    RadioAlt=12
    will set to 12 ft.

    >If not, how can I fix it ?

    Isn't the cockpit 7 ft above the ground in the aircraft that you are
    using?

    Depends on the aircraft, in any case, you can compensate it with the
    RadioAlt entry in the aircraft config file.
