Hi

A few days ago I was flying for a couple of hours in -7c wx (19F for those south of the 49th). Everything was uneventful until I was on a downwind to land when my static line became blocked.

Fortunately my annual was only a couple of days away so I checked things out when I had everything opened up for inspection. I found a 1/4" column of water in the static line low point in the tail cone. As it was well below freezing there the line must have frozen thereabouts.

A quick blast of air (from the panel end of the line) and the water was gone.

I thought I'd mention this as something to watch for.

Cheers

Les

Yeah, it's bad enough dealing with erroneous information ourselves, but in these days of powerful autopilots, you have to make sure it doesn't get confused either.
