Several factors affecting the calibration accuracy of flight vehicle static pressure systems were considered in some detail. The standard atmospheres used within the past 40 years are tabulated and compared. Altimeter calibration techniques and standards are discussed. The influence of pressure system leakage was evaluated both analytically and experimentally. The influence of skin irregularities in the vicinity of fuselage static pressure ports was calculated from linearized theory and the results presented in graphical form. Fuselage irregularities were measured on 18 military transport type aircraft.
