Summary0000281: Wrong wording for descent calls in certain situations
DescriptionAnother issue I noticed in some test flight: my cruise altitude was 4000ft. When approaching the destination airport I suddenly got the instruction from ATC „maintain 3000ft”. Actually at this time I was still flying at 4000ft. So the correct command would have been “descent to 3000ft” or “descent and maintain 3000ft”.

As for the incorrect descent call (“maintain” instead of “descent”) I think I found a possible reason. Could it be, that the “maintain” or “descent” call is depending on the “flight level error tolerance” on the plugin options? I had this value set quite high (1500ft) and after reducing to 300ft I got the correct calls?

If this is the case I think that could be improved. The descent calls should not depend on the "flight level tolerance" option.
