static port

static port
A small hole, or port, in the skin of an aircraft at a suitable location where the disturbance to the airflow is the least. This is the pickup port for the static pressure for the pressure instruments. Some aircraft utilize a pitot-static tube for this purpose. Also called a static vent.
