Onboard Alarm system

There are three separate alarm systems onboard GlobalFlyer.

First, is a Navigation alert. It will ring when Steve's Cross-track is outside the limit. [the distance from the intended course]

Second, an alarm sounds if Steve's Altitude deviates more than desired.

Finally, a third alarm is used to keep Steve from getting more than a few minutes of sleep at one time.
