WTB: used 57mm Altimeter OR swap for 80mm Altimeter by joesimmers
If anyone has a used (57mm) altimeter they are interested in selling please contact me. It needs to be TSO and I believe the only one that makes a certified altimeter in 57mm size is Winter instruments. I have a very nice 80mm Altimeter to trade, sell, swap, etc. Thanks,
