High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles A pitot-static system is
a system of pressure-sensitive instruments that is most often used
in aviation to determine an aircraft's airspeed, Mach number,
altitude, and altitude trend. A pitot-static system generally
consists of a pitot tube, a static port, and the pitot-static
instruments. This equipment is used to measure the forces acting on
a vehicle as a function of the temperature, density, pressure and
viscosity of the fluid in which it is operating. Other instruments
that might be connected are air data computers, flight data
recorders, altitude encoders, cabin pressurization controllers, and
various airspeed switches. Errors in pitot-static system readings
can be extremely dangerous as the information obtained from the
pitot static system, such as altitude, is often critical to a
successful flight. Several commercial airline disasters have been
traced to a failure of the pitot-static system.
