Great shot! Happen to know the tail number, or aircraft details?


Thanks.

So how come the altimeter shows a thousand feet when its sitting on the ground?

Couldn't that be kind of a problem? :rolleyes:

No problem, that is probably the airport elevation. His avatar information indicates he is in Phoenix, AZ, USA. according to my A/FD, KPHX is 1135 feet above sea level. While he almost certainly isn't based at Phoenix International airport, the airports nearby are all fairly close to that altitude.

We reference altitude to sea level since that is more nearly a constant reference than the airports, which are at all different altitudes. Since we know the airport altitude, or the height of obstacles such as mountains or radio towers. In the image below, I circled a radio tower (right quarter of the image). The top is 2438 feet above sea level. If I hit the top of it, I would fall 1185 feet (the number in parenthesis). By referencing our altimeters to MSL (mean sea level), we all agree that the top of the tower is 2438 feet above sea level, Lincoln airport is 1219 feet above seal level, and the Aeronca is sitting almost 1000 feet MSL. We do adjust the altimeters based on air pressure, or we set them to the airport altitude if we can't get an altimeter setting.

if you look closely you will see a knob on the altimeter to set it at field elevation above mean sea level

it must be constantly be adjusted as it works off barometric pressure

you can park it one day and it reads 1000ft and come back the next day and it can be way higher or lower

during a long flight a pilot will frequently obtain current barometric pressures via radio from air traffic control and check/adjust altimeter as necessary

not a big deal on sunny days but foggy nights have killed many careless pilots who are lazy or forgetful with altimeter adjustment

the only time your altimeter should read "0" while on the ground is if the airport has a field elevation of "0" ... rare but actually exists
