Inspection and On Site Testing

Clear Sky Aviation provides Altimeter and ATC transponder systems test and inspection services

for both type certificated and experimental general aviation aircraft at your location by our mobile instrument shop. Test and Inspection of Altimeters and altitude reporting equipment is conducted using the industry standard Barfield pitotstatic test system. Clear Sky Aviation always has a complete set of pitot and static port adapters on hand including those specifically designed for your airplane. We begin by leak testing your pitot and static pressure systems. Next, we subject your altimeters and blind encoders to simulated altitudes up to the service ceiling of your airplane. Optionally, we can also test your air speed indicators and record their accuracy. At the conclusion a full test report is provided to the client. Test and inspection of ATC transponder systems is conducted using the industry standard Aeroflex IFR 6000 flight line test set. We begin by establishing a link between our test-set to your ATC transponder either through a direct or wireless connection. Next, we interrogate your ATC transponder to the full extent of its MODE A, C or S functionalities. At the conclusion a full computer generated test report is provided to the client.
