DME calculation seems to be wrong

Recommended Posts

I confirmed it in my last flight, whenever you're at, say, FL370 and overfly a VOR/DME station it will report 0.1 DME, which is not possible, considering that the distance between the plane and stations at FL370 would be about 6.1 NM... The calculation probably is considering the ground distance, which is not the case for DME readings.
