Equipment suffixes

Postby mcdonaldc » Fri May 08, 2020 4:05 pm

What equipment suffix am I supposed to file to fly above FL290, PMDG 737. I am not a real pilot. The controller I spoke with told me to look in the AIM, but it's gibberish to me.

It all depends on the capability of your aircraft. Between FL290-410 is RVSM airspace therefore you need to have the correct equipment to fly in it. Knowing that, you should be able to pair up the equipment within your airplane to a qualifying RVSM equipment suffix.

This may help you out.

Suggestion, if the AIM is “gibberish” to you, a 737 may not be the best aircraft choice. Better to start in a smaller, slower GA aircraft and work your way up, just like typical R/W flight training.
