field elevation

field elevation

The highest point of an airport's usable runways measured in feet or meters from mean sea level. The elevation of the highest point of the landing area is called an aerodrome, or airport, elevation and is depicted on approach charts. See aerodrome elevation.

The new Pro+ also has built-in temperature and barometer sensors for displaying altitude (it won't display temperature), which we found accurate to within a few feet when comparing the altitude resolution to field elevation.
As we're descending, we run through our initial descent checklist, verify that the temperature and winds have been entered into the flight management system (FMS), check our landing distance numbers, verify that field elevation has been set for our pressurization system, and double check our frequency for the FBO that we'll be flying into.
