Altimeter

What Does an Altimeter Do?

An altimeter is an instrument on an aircraft that is used to measure the altitude, or height of the aircraft above a fixed level, usually either the ground or sea level. An altimeter can determine altitude by measuring the atmospheric pressure outside the aircraft. The higher the altitude, the lower the atmospheric pressure.
