    1. Altimeter

    2. Vertical Speed Indicator

    3. Airspeed Indicator
  2. absolute altitude
    the verticle distance of an aircraft about the terrain
  3. indicated altitude
    the altitude read off of the altimeter after it is set to the current altimter setting
  4. pressure altitude
    the altitude when the altimeter is adjusted to 29.92
  5. what is pressure altitude used for ?
    1. true airspeed

    2. density altitude
