With the help from this board I finally got magnetic variation straightened out. Now, after rummaging through various websites I have totally confused myself about altitude.
When FS says your altimeter setting is wrong, you correct by hitting the b key. Am I correct in thinking that is now the Indicated Altitude?
When I then adjust the barometer to read 29.92" am I correct in thinking that this is the Pressure Altitude?
Am I also correct in thinking that, for FS, the Calibrated Airspeed is the Indicated Airspeed? In other words, FS has "perfect" instruments that do not need calibration?
The reason I'm doing this is to program my hp50g calculator to do all this and then attempt to try my hand at DED reckoning with the old propliners. Let's say from Honolulu to Melbourne. I'll probably wind up in Calcutta, or maybe Nome but I'd like to try.
