I’d like to talk to you real quick about transition altitude and transition level in aviation. Here’s a quick way to remember the difference: As you climb, you’re going to be going through a transition altitude, at which you switch from local altimeter setting on your altimeter to 29.92 or QNE. Think of the “A” in altitude as an upward facing arrow, and that’s how you’ll know the difference between the Altitude going up and the leVel going down! As we descend our aircraft we’re going to switch from QNE, or 29.92, to our local altimeter setting of QNH going down. So think of the “V” as a downward facing arrow, and that’s how you remember the difference between transition levels and transition altitudes.
