AS415 - Altimeter, Pressure, Compensated (Turbine Powered Subsonic Aircraft)

Details
Document Number: AS415
Revision Number:
Title
Altimeter, Pressure, Compensated (Turbine Powered Subsonic Aircraft)
Scope
This Aerospace Standard covers two types of compensated altimeters which indicate, by visual means, the pressure altitude compensated for the static pressure system errors of the aircraft.

TYPE I - Range: - 1,000 to 30,000 feet. Barometric pressure - scale range: at least 28.1 - 30.99 in. Hg (952-1049 millibars). May include markers working in conjunction with the Barometric Pressure Scale to indicate pressure altitude.

TYPE II - Range: - 1,000 to 60,000 feet. Barometric pressure - scale range: at least 28.1 - 30.99 in. Hg (952-1049 millibars). May include markers working in conjunction with the Barometric Pressure Scale to indicate pressure.
