- Of or pertaining to aerostatics; pneumatic.
- 1828, “Mr. Genet's Remars on Dr. Jones' Animadversions”, in American Journal of Science, volume 13, page 377:
- I have very much improved my mechanical combinations, for the navigation of the air and water by hydrostatic and aerostatic forces.
- 2007, Ashish Tewari, Atmospheric and Space Flight Dynamics: Modeling and Simulation with MATLAB:
- Atmospheric flight is dominated by the presence of atmospheric forces, which can be divided into aerostatic and aerodynamic categories.
- 2008, Norberto Lopez de Lacalle, Machine Tools for High Performance Machining, page 384:
- Hydrostatic and aerostatic guides are widely applied to precision feed tables, since their motion is accurate due to the lack of friction and wearing.
- Pertaining to aerial navigation or aeronautics.
- 1828, James Smith, The Panorama of Science and Art:
- The general term for the machines used in this kind of navigation, is that of aërostats, or aërostatic machines; but those which are of a spherical figure, and filled with gas, are better known by the name of air-balloons.
