1

How to find Pressure Altitude

PA= Actual altimeter setting- standard= ANS. (ANSx1000)- Field Elevation

2

Pressure Altitude

When 29.92 is set it Kolsman Window

3

Density Altitude

Pressure Altitude corrected for non standard temperature

4

Absolue Altitude

Height above the ground (AGL)

5

True Altitude

Height above sea level (MSL)

6

Indicated Altitude

Read off Altimeter
