Which altimeter setting would the pilot use if they want the altimeter to read zero when the aircraft is at airfield elevation?
You are maintaining an indicated altitude of 2000ft on the regional QNH of 1001hPa. The air mass you are flying within has the ISA temperature structure. You fly into an area where the temperature is cooler than ISA. If the QNH and your subscale setting do not change, your:
You are currently flying at 1,300ft above mean sea level, with the QNH of 989hPa set in the altimeter. As you fly towards an area of higher pressure, you should expect:
Which altimeter setting should be used to display your altitude above mean sea level?
When should a pilot use (a) QNH, and (b) the standard pressure setting?
How should a pilot set their altimeter and communicate their altitude when flying above the transition layer?
