    Ah, thanks, that makes sense!

    And thank you for understanding that when I ask questions like this, A) it really is a question, and B) I need simple explanations, preferably with small words.
    The opinions and statements of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events.

    Thank you, Frank. Feedback is always good. They say you don't know a subject until you can teach it. I agree.

    Just found this pic. Please note that there is no P-S driven airspeed or altimeter installed installed. I think I found the answer to my original question.

    I can't believe I'm doing this (must like punishment). Dave: I see no picture.

    If the picture is of the panel of an EAB airplane, I agree you have found the answer to your question … supported by all the other posts on this thread. No required instruments for EAB airplanes.

    Well, the image keeps getting scrubbed off so here is the link. The aircraft is equipped with nav lights....wonder if it’s approved for night VFR.

    Are you sure that the I-K Tech airspeed indicator is not pitot/static driven? I was looking into their instruments at one time and I'm pretty sure that it is.

    E-AB aircraft don't get "approved" for night or IFR flight. It is the responsibility of the pilot to comply with night and IFR requirements per 91.205.

    This is interesting. I know the Garmin 496 has no P-S information. In fact, the manual states that one has to input that data into the unit from the airspeed and altimeter instruments.

    The transponder, on the other hand, has to be getting static pressure from somewhere.
