an FAA inspector discovered that the helicopters pitot
tubes were severely corroded.
This pilot turned on the carburetor and pitot
heat before entering IMC.
A lean production system was developed utilizing the United Technologies ACE (Achieving Competive Excellence) operating system to streamline the production of a pitot
probe that had increased robustness to Appendix D conditions.
For field approvals in applications supplementing an Aspen EFD1000 primary flight display, shops have been questioned about the SAI-340's attitude aiding (via pitot
We are excited to once again work with the Louisiana Landmarks Society on this special dual tour of the Pitot

Pilots and co-pilots, aircraft pitot
tubes are sensors used to measure aircraft speed.
AT FL450, the pitot
static system failed, which resulted in a loss of indications for airspeed (including standby airspeed), altitude and engine-pressure-ratio (EPR) .
Supplied by AESPump Ltd in June 2012, the triplex positive displacement plunger pump has replaced two aging and troublesome Pitot
Tube pumps used for washing filter screens and supplying high pressure wash-down hoses.
The stall was precipitated by the flightcrew's improper reaction to erroneous airspeed and Mach indications which had resulted from a blockage of the pitot
heads by atmospheric icing.
ABB Measurement Products' business has extended its line of compact flowmeters to include four DP technologies: orifice, wedge, averaging pitot
and integral orifice.
The company, with a headcount of some 60 people, produces air data sensors such as pitot
probes, static pressure ports, angle of attack, temperature sensors and flight test equipment used in the business jet and helicopter markets.
