HIGH BAROMETIC PRESSURE – CHECK YOUR ALTIMETERS!

Post by SteveSlater » Fri Jan 17, 2020 5:17 pm

Some timely advice from Eurocontrol. After several days of low pressure, it is expected that barometric pressure will increase to a record 1050 hPa this weekend.

This could particularly have implications for pilots flying below controlled airspace as recorded altitudes may be lower than actual. Check your altimeter settings!

I was hoping to be able to have some fun with this, but we are still unable to use the runway.

Please could someone press the fast forward button as it doesn't work when I try?
