Every aircraft has a pitot and pitot static system with sensors which detect the ambient air pressure, pitot pressure and unaffected pressure which is the static pressure, when the aircraft is cruising.

These pressures provide informations which are used to determine several flight parameters which include
In some cases, aircraft are mounted with intelligent probes that also provides important information on the Angle of Attack (AOA).

If you are in involved in parking procedures or in charge of line maintenance on an aircraft you will know the importance and the criticality of regular pitot pressure controls. The procedure is pretty straight forward and is detailed in the Aircraft Maintenance Manual of every single aircraft. The real question is : Is Pitot Probe protection and Inspection always a priority in operational procedures ? Normally each altimeter and static pressure system must undergo an inspection to ensure accuracy and compliance with standards every 24 calendar months if the aircraft is to be used for IFR flight.
After the pandemic during which lots of aircraft remained parked in hangars, it even more crucial not to take this standard maintenance procedure lightly. If you comply with safety procedures you also want pitot pressure test procedure to be easy and fast to operate. To perform a test, you can trust in a short and effective time to keep control of manhours you will need the most accurate, reliable Air Data Test instruments.
