Steve reaches filed cruise altitude!

Steve has just reached FL450! (Flight Level 450, or 45,000')

The initial climb took just over 15.5 hours.

The altitude displayed on the website is a GPS derived altitude. The Pressure Altitude read from inside the cockpit is slightly less than what is displayed on the website. The difference in the readouts is due to temperature and air pressure.
