Chris Holmes FL300 initial cruise - Step Climb FL340... Flying over Botswana, kACARS register as descending, is this due to the step climb? Descent started at 08:45z
Dieter Magnet Hi Chris, you should set the Acars altitude to the lower initial altitude and leave it like that even when you step climb. Just make a note in your PIREP when you do step climb.
