Flight Plan Questions

Wed Jun 06, 2012 11:14 am

A few questions regarding flight plans that I am hoping can answer for me, you can see the numbers under SH (safety height), for good situational awareness I would mark the S.H of 11.1 in the case we have to initiate an emer descent, on this occasion I would only decent to 11100, clearly to me this is the lowest ALTITUDE that is safe, why is it labeled as a Safety HEIGHT then??



DREM FREM AREM G/S W/V S.H STAGE S FREQ MTK DIS TM ETA ATA FL
822 6766 TAXI
------------------------------ -------------------------------
746 5843 2.4 *** ******** 137 76 12 : :
------------------------------ -------------------------------
25 2500 11.1 SKAVI 086 20 3 : :


On the above example you can also see MTK (as in magnetic track), why is it then, for alternate airports, it is given as a TTK?


RESV/HOLD 0:30 ****KG S.H. TTK GDIST W/C
E*** 0:30 ****KG 9.7 312 60 P2


I have told that this system was made by Lufthansa, any ideas on where/who I could contact to find out?

Thanks
