hi guys what is the difference betwen sensitive and non sensitive altimeter thank you
I believe the non-sensitive has only a single pointer measuring in in larger increments, whereas the other is the more common type with its two (or more) pointers making it possible to read in 10 ft increments.
I think the sensitive altimeter has an adjustment so it can be set to the local barometric pressure.
You can be WAY off the altitude you think you are flying at when going through a front with a large baro pressure change.
Both are correct.
