Pressure setting to give you your height above a specific ground reference point. Valid only while the atmospheric pressure in the region stays constant â€“ if the atmospheric pressure changes, you need to change your QFE to suit. Also used to describe how a height is derived, e.g. "1200' QFE". (To help you remember what Q FE stands for, think of it as your height rom arth)
The current barometric pressure measured at that airfield. In other words, an altimeter set to the QFE figure for that airfield would indicate zero feet when the aircraft was on the runway. Q codes historically began with wireless transmissions around 1912 and were introduced to speed communications whilst reducing scope for misunderstanding messages. [ Q Field Elevation
