Calculate actual altitude in MSFS


Recommended Posts


Is it possible, with the current values provided by MSFS, to calculate the actual altitude the aircraft is flying in? I am currently flying at FL360 and the reported altitude through the regular offsets is way off (37342ft at the moment). Sometimes it's even bigger.

I understand that MSFS has a whole different (better) model of the atmosphere, so is there a way to read all the required data to calculate the "correct" altitude we're flying at? I am sorry but this is a very grey area for me, altitude calculations with pressure, temperature and the such make me "dizzy", so any help is appreciated.

Thank you!
