How did we get here?!
Yeh, flew into Moscow Domodedovo quite regularly. They speak English (very well). They speak Russian between themselves.
Russia and China are the two main countries which use Metres as a unit for height/altitude. We had a table on our charts to convert their clearances to Feet. They also land give regional pressure settings with reference to the airport rather than the area itself (QFE over QNH) but were fine if we asked for QNH.
Main problem was the complexity of the arrival procedures and the number of frequency changes heading in there, then the runway is rough as hell and it's an aircraft graveyard around the airport..
Anyway, I digress from Assistance Levels...
Yes, it was merely a vague lamens explanation which I use to understand the magic that's inside the Brose motor
Cool Jon, I wasn't sure if you had flown in that region at all. And yes strange turn for the thread haha. Strange, but fun ?
I can deal with QNH but would probably freak out if Approach would have given me QFE on first contact for sure... Been a while since ground school and I'm not a professional like you, rather only a happy private amateur...
