In view of the boom anticipated in the years to come and given the ever growing interest in QNH and its new Merweb brand, QNH perceives the great importance to be powerfully represented in Doha with their new headquarters of international standards.
QNH has selected Arab Engineering Beareu as the designers and consultants for its new headquarters whereas groundbreaking is planned for early 2008 with move in expected by mid 2009.
The new QNH headquarters will be located within the premises of the Doha Marriott Hotel, replacing the previous QNH Air Catering Unit.

  QNH information - Search.com
QNH is a Q code used by pilots, air traffic control (ATC) and low frequency weather beacons to refer to the barometric altimeter setting which will cause the altimeter to read altitude above mean sea level within a certain defined region.
In the UK the lowest forecast value of QNH for an altimeter setting region is called the "Regional Pressure Setting" and may be used to ensure safe terrain separation when cruising at lower altitudes.
In North America, QNH is given in inches and hundredths thereof inches of mercury (in the example, ATC would say "Golf Charlie Fox, altimeter two niner niner two" as in 29.92 inches of mercury).

  QNH
This value is used by pilots to calibrate the altimeter on board the aircraft, to ensure that the pilot is accurately aware of his actual flying height.
In most parts of the world, QNH is given in millibars (or, expressed more correctly, hectopascals, which is the SI unit).
In the USA, QNH is given in inches of mercury.

In the UK the lowest forecast value of QNH for an altimeter setting region is called the "Regional Pressure Setting" and may be used to ensure safe terrain separation when cruising at lower altitudes.
QNH differs from QFE which refers to the altimeter setting that will cause the altimeter to read the height above a specific aerodrome, and therefore zero on landing.
In North America, QNH is given in inches and hundredths thereof inches of mercury (in the example, ATC would say "Golf Charlie Fox, altimeter two niner niner two" as in 29.92 inches of mercury).

The altimeter setting in aviation, set either QNH or QFE, is another atmospheric pressure reduced to sea level, but the method of making this reduction differs slightly.
QNH barometric altimeter setting which will cause the altimeter to read altitude above mean sea level in the vicinity of an airfield.
In aviation weather reports (METAR), QNH is transmitted around the world in millibars or hectopascals, except in the United States and Canada where it is reported in inches of mercury.

 Altitude and altimeters
The Australian aviation regulations state that when an 'accurate' QNH is set on the pressure-setting scale at an airfield, the altimeter indication should read within 100 feet of the published airfield elevation, or 110 feet if elevation exceeds 3300 feet; otherwise the altimeter should be considered unserviceable.
The Local QNH at an airfield is normally derived from an actual pressure reading, but the Area QNH used outside the airfield zone is a forecast value, valid for three hours, and may vary by up to 5 hPa from any Local QNH in the same area.
Either Local QNH or Area QNH may be set on the altimeter pressure-setting scale of all aircraft cruising in the Altimeter Setting Region; which [in Australia] extends from the surface to the Transition Altitude of 10 000 feet.

QNH- This is the air pressure at sea level.
With the QNH set, your altimeter should read the aerodrome elevation above sea level when you are on the ground.
When instructed to descend to an altitude, you will be given the local QNH, so you may then set the new QNH and descend to the specified altitude.

 FAI BALLOONING COMMISSION
QNH is defined as "the pressure at mean sea level (MSL) calculated from the barometric pressure at ground level using the ICAO STD for the part between MSL and ground level".
If the QNH is obtained from a station at a high elevation the portion of altitude from MSL up to the elevation of the QNH station shall be disregarded when calculating the temperature correction as they already assumed a ICAI STD atmosphere up to the station elevation.
If the QNH was obtained from a station at a high elevation and the peak altitude was also obtained over high terrain, then the temperature difference shall only be calculated from ground level up to the peak altitude but the difference shall then be averaged out over the full altitude range.

 LF : QNH/QFE/FL
To be 2000 ft QNH means that you altitude (above medium sea level) is 2000 ft. Your barometric reference is the real pressure at sea level.
If you want to use the QNH, which is the real altitude, just add 39 mbar to the ground pressure before you set up your altimeter.
Metar give both QNH and QFE pressure reference, and you'll be free to choose which one you want to use then.

 Met Office: NWP Gazette
This would generally only be used during occasions when the atmospheric pressure is exceptionally high or low and altimeter sub scales are unable to be set in the normal way.
QNH is used to set the altimeter to read the actual height above sea level in the local area.
This is also passed by the local ATC and so when the aircraft is on the ground with QNH set, the altimeter will show the height of the airfield.

The pressure setting to achieve this is called QNH or "altimeter setting" and is available from various sources, including air traffic control and the local METAR.
Note that vertical separation is not guaranteed between an aircraft flying at the transition altitude and one flying at the transitional level.
For example in the UK with a transition altitude of 3000' and a QNH of 996 the Transition Level is FL35 equivalent to an altitude of less than 3100'.

 Emerald Air VA Navigation Training - Lesson 3
QNH that's usually provided by an ATIS or ATC station is the barometric pressure reading of a given point on the surface, reduced to sea level.
QFE, that is sometimes used as an alternative to QNH, is the barometric pressure on the surface.
This is to the contrary to the QNH setting, where your altimeter reading will equal the published airport Elevation when you are on the ground.

 FAQ - QNH
- QNH: valore di pressione (di norma espresso in hPa) da inserire nella subscala dell’altimetro di bordo di un aeromobile, affinchè l’altimetro tarato secondo l’atmosfera tipo ICAO, indichi l’elevazione dell’aeroporto, qualora l’aeromobile si trovi al suolo su tale punto.
QNH: il calcolo del QNH, partendo dal QFE, è basato sulla relazione tra l’altitudine e la pressione come definita nel Manual of the ICAO Standard Atmosphere (ICAO Doc.
Dato che questa relazione è di tipo logaritmico il valore del QNH dipende dal valore assunto, di volta in volta, dal QFE per una determinata elevazione dell’aeroporto.

The QNH or local altimeter setting (commonly used worldwide below the transition altitude) is the result of a calculation according to the airfield altitude and the QFE.
FLs are used instead of QNH because 1013 or 29.92 is a standard setting all over the world unlike the QNH, which could be different from one point to another.
There is no difference between the QNH and the standard setting, so no difference between 5000 ft QNH and FL 50.
