What three instruments operate off of the pitot/static system?
2. Vertical Speed Indicator
3. Airspeed Indicator
the verticle distance of an aircraft about the terrain
the altitude read off of the altimeter after it is set to the current altimter setting
the altitude when the altimeter is adjusted to 29.92
what is pressure altitude used for ?
1. true airspeed
2. density altitude
3. true airspeed
the true verticle distance of the aicraft above sea level
What three factors from the aeronautical charts are found in true altitude ?
3. obstacle elevations
pressure altitude corrected for nonstandard temperature variations
What three relations does density altitude have?
1. relation to takeoff
2. relation to climb
3. relation to landing performance
What is the one limitation to the airspeed indicator ?
it requires proper airflow to the static port and the pitot tube
