Regarding heated pitot tube, I was mainly think it would be an nice thing to have here in Norway where the winter is long, moist and long.

Anyway: does anyone have any experience with Vans unheated pitot tube?
I guess that one only can be used in Vans airspeed indicators (or similar type)

Dear Alf,

I've been reading the replys to your pitot tube question.
What the question really comes to is: Will YOU feel better with a heated
pitot tube? It really doesn't matter whether one is required or not. It
also doesn't matter that it may cost more. What will make you happy when
your out flying in the "moist, cold air"?

As the builder, that choice is up to you and your comfort factor. As for
the unheated pitot tube, I have one on my RV-6 and it works great. But my
comfort factor is VFR only.

Happy building,
John Brunke
St. Charles, IL

Van's pitot tube works just fine... how deep are you pockets? That's really the question. I would estimate 70% of Van's planes flying are using Van's pitot tube at this time.
