1 min read
The pitot-static system is the source of valuable flight information for the pilot. But how does it work and what instruments are affected? Take this quiz to find out if you have mastered the finer details of the pitot-static system.
1. Which instrument(s) will become inoperative if the static vents become clogged?
2. If a flight is made from an area of low pressure into an area of high pressure without the altimeter setting being adjusted, the altimeter will indicate
3. What does the red line on an airspeed indicator represent?
4. What altitude does the altimeter indicate?
5. Which instrument will become inoperative if the pitot tube becomes clogged?
6. The pitot system provides impact pressure for which instrument(s)?
7. Altimeter setting is the value to which the barometric pressure scale of the altimeter is set so the altimeter indicates
8. Which condition would cause the altimeter to indicate a lower altitude than true altitude?
9. If, while in level flight, it becomes necessary to use an alternate source of static pressure vented inside the airplane, which of the following should the pilot expect?
Pitot-Static System You got out of 9 right!
