1. Three Pointer Altimeter with Barometric Window and
Low Altitude Warning Stripes is a modern type. The
easy to read striped sector will show while flying below
2. Three Pointer Altimeter with a Barometric Window enables the pilot to adjust the altimeter to the barometric conditions existing at the point of landing.
3. Two Pointer Altimeter without Barometric Window. This type of altimeter is designed to meet the demands of some pilots who either live or fly the area’s barometric pressure beyond 28.1 to 31 inches of mercury, or 950 to 1050 millibars, or some pilots prefer to set the altimeter to”0” altitude before taking off without regard to the barometric pressure. By installing this altimeter, the pilot can fly anywhere in the world without having to care about the barometric pressure changes.

The altimeter reading seems to shake. The hundreds of feet arm isnt stable. When you set the pressure its about 200 ft off
The altimeter read 80’ off the compared with two other altimeters at field elevation with current baro setting. The correction sheet was not accurate for field elevation, and had deviations at 100+ feet or some altitudes. Didn’t even install it.
