Well i think it will be good if there is a available option to show units in AE using metrics (meters, kilometers and so on) instead of only imperial units available (feet, miles, etc)...

America invented commercial aviation therefore everything has to stay in terms Americans can understand & all international pilots must be able to speak English because Americans invented that too. That's also why the pilot in command sits on the left because that's the way Americans learnt to drive cars. Whoever invented the helicopter was somewhat mischievious. 

 

I was on a Qantas flight once and the captain gave the flight briefing as "we'll be cruising at 35,000ft which is about 10 & a half thousand metres, at a speed of approx xxxkm/hr...."

Australians appreciate metric.

 

So do the Russians. The don't give a stuff about American aviation conventions & use only metric for altitude, weights, speed, etc, both in the military & commercial aviation.

Imperial units are those officially used in aviation so those are the ones used in game.

Apparently on AE gameplay since the main parameters are the aircraft range/ route length and airport runway length, it is possible to implement Metrics. Most of the world use meters to determine length of runway and i think most of airline in the world use kilometers to determine range. Imperial units only used during flight (such as flight altitude)

Actually it is hybrid, not totally imperial or metrics either. Though for operations which is available on AE, i think most of the world use metrics unit instead of imperial.
