1.14. Altitude Alert

[If your Aeroplane is not equipped with an Altitude Alert System delete this section. Depending on the how your Aeroplane is equipped it may be necessary to add to or delete from this section.]

  1. General — The Altitude Alert System shall be used to the extent possible to prevent the Aeroplane from occupying other than the desired altitude. Procedures applicable to specific phases of flight are found in the relevant chapters throughout the SCSOPs. See also the section titled Standard Calls Altitude found earlier in this chapter.
  2. Altitude Alert Setting — Other than as specified elsewhere in these SCSOPs the following procedures should be used for setting the Altitude Alert system:
    1. If in autoflight, the Pilot should set required altitudes in the Altitude Alert System, arm the Flight Guidance System, and advise the remaining flight crew.
    2. If in manual flight, the Pilot should set required altitudes in the Altitude Alert System, arm the Flight Guidance System (if it is in use).
