Airspeed indicator

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had problems with airspeed indicator? Neither the basic indicator or the one on the Dynon working today. I am thinking that they flew in a little snow and some went in the pitot tube. Over night it may have melted in the hangar and then froze when the plane went out today. Can't really think of any other cause. I will try to warm the pitot tube enough to melt and dry it out.

I had water in mine once after my wife and son washed the airplane. I had to pull the panel and blow the lines out. Not on the CT but another aircraft I had debris in the pitot tube itself.

ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE LINES FROM THE INSTRUMENT, AND BLOW FROM THERE TO THE PITOT TUBE. NEVER BLOW INTO THE PITOT TUBE.
