Metric altimeter and speed


Recommended Posts


as I am doing some cargo operations in Asia I am looking for a metric altimeter gauge or knob. I even dont know if UPS A300s delivered with that option... 

But is there someone a possiblity to switch between feet and meters in the inibuild A300?

all the best

So far I have seen nothing about being able to do this in the FCOM.  My guess is it was not an option.  I think only Russia and North Korea(?) use metric flight levels.  China changed to the RVSM format in like 2007ish.  To be really confusing, I remember reading that some of the "stan" countries use feet for light levels and below the transition they use meters.  Could be wrong, going from memory.
