As a non-pilot...whats the significance of this
Altimeters should be set to local altitude....?
29.92 inches of mercury is Barometric pressure.
don’t know, am listening live now; have been discussing items other than the advertised headline...
All altimeters are set to 29.92 above 18000' MSL. If they were using RNAV, it would be a 'Q' designated route.
I think they meant to imply 18000' outbound beyond US airspace so she would be out of country literally.
I also think the ref is bullshiite.
okay the Abel Danger webcast was pretty much a bust. Sorry for bringing it to the fore of the thread. Sometimes McConnell has good tidbits.
McConnell made a statement that Pelosi cospired with Kristine Marci (McConnell’s nasty SES sister) to off POTUS while NP was out of the country. Gobsmack earlier made statement the NP was going to EU to meet with replacement of NATO (cesco??), then sightsee in Egypt, and then to Afghanistan.
Once you are in the flight levels, which is anything over 18,000 (e.g. FL180 and up) altimeters must be set to standard atmospheric which is 29.92 inches of mercury. Below that level you set to local pressure which you get from local ATIS, flight service, or sometimes center or the tower will tell you a setting if the weather is in a period of rapid change like frontal passage or thunderstorm.
