MetreUnits conversion.

If you come from the UK or the USA, you may be surprised to discover that in mainland Europe, we don't use the same units as you do.

(Our units are closer to the international system used world wide in physics! Russians are even better, since they mesure ACFT altitudes and heights using meters instead of feet. Why the hell should we use so exotic units as feet, gallons, inches, statute miles, pounds... just because we fly? Just ask a physician what he thinks about them ;o) )


You can use euroVFR in order to compute aeronautical units conversions.

For other units, you may have a look on this page, from a English aviation magazine's web site. (Pilot)
