Aircraft Icing: A Pilot's Guide by Terry T. Lankford: From two-seat single-engine aircraft to jumbo s, icing is a silent creeper and one of the industry's hottest concerns. Covers all aspects of aircraft icing-ground, airframe, and induction. Provides solid foundation of icing theory and physics without superfluous meteorological concepts. He also wrote Aircraft Icing. A pilot since , he also holds single-engine, multiengine, and instrument ratings, as well as an FAA Gold Seal Instructor certificate. An FAA accident prevention counselor, he earned the Flight Safety Award in Lankford also contributes articles to pilot by: Icing One of the greatest hazards to flight is aircraft icing. The instrument pilot must be aware of the conditions conducive to aircraft icing. These conditions include the types of icing, the effects of icing on aircraft control and performance, effects of icing on aircraft systems, and the use and limitations of aircraft deice and anti-ice equipment. Coping with the hazards of icing begins.   Icing approval involves a rigorous testing program, and relatively few light aircraft carry this approval. From a legal perspective, aircraft that do not have all equipment installed and functional are prohibited from venturing into an area where icing conditions are known.

The Manual of Aircraft Ground De-icing/Anti-icing Operations (Doc ) Second Edition , provides a general description of the various factors relating to aeroplane icing on the ground. It addresses the minimum procedural requirements necessary to conduct safe and efficient operations during those conditions which require aeroplane de-icing and anti-icing activities.

Ice typically forms on an aircraft in flight when the aircraft surface collides with water droplets that have remained liquid although they are below the freezing point. aircraft flight manual of the aircraft you are flying and use this book only for an overview of the icing problem and for a better understanding on afm contents. regulations and standard procedures like hold-over tables, pilot report codings, any aircraft icing severity definitions, are subject to .   Introduction Aircraft icing is the accretion of supercooled water onto an airplane during flight. Accreted ice adversely affects flight, thus, it is an important component of an aviation .
