The Pitot probe checks and maintenance actions are described in the operator’s
maintenance manual.

The Pitot probes are subject to a daily visual inspection by a mechanic, who checks
their general condition. The crew performs the same type of check before each flight.

The following operations are performed on the Pitot probes every 8,000 hours
(around every 21 months during a C check):

Cleaning of the complete probe using compressed air (“blowing” operation);
Cleaning of the drains with a specific tool;

Test and check of probe heating by the standby electrical power supply system;
Check of the sealing of the circuits.

In the case of speed inconsistencies being reported by the crew, corrective actions
are the same as those in the Type C checks.
