Description: Note presenting a determination of the accuracy with which pressure altitude can be measured by calculation of the errors in the measuring system, errors arising from operation of the system, and variations in atmospheric pressure. Some possibilities for reducing errors in the categories of altimeter-scale error, static-pressure error, atmospheric-reference error, flight technical error, friction error, and service error are provided.
