Believe El Bunto has the right info. I believe it’s stop confusion between say 997 hectopascals and 29.97 inches. At least that’s what an ATC chap told me. It’s probably in CAP413?

Hi BEagle

Thanks for that info. I'll talk to the company direct and see if they're amenable. Also, I may try the CAA as well to see if they will provide some guidance.
