What's the highest setting that's usually available on aircraft, in hPa or in. Hg? Only asking because of a news report from New Zealand saying that there could be a high pressure of 1049hPa which is about 31 in Hg.

Quoting WILCO737 (Reply 1): We can set out altimetet to 1084 hPa which is enough.
Thanks for that. I have vague memories of reports from quite a few years ago when the pressure was so high over Alaska at the time, it was almost off the top of the pressure setting range on the altimeter.
