PITOT STATIC SYSTEM
As student aviators, it is necessary for you to become familiar with the T-34C pitot static system.
You must also become familiar with the location, operation, and purpose of various components
to be able to interpret the pitot static instruments correctly. The pitot static instruments consist of
the airspeed indicator, altimeter, and vertical speed indicator (VSI).
