Carburettor icing during takeoff is not as rare as some would like to believe. The best preventative is to apply C.H. on leaving the run-up area and removing it at just before full power is applied. Every descent made at reduced power should be done with full carburettor heat on. Aerodynamic Effects of De-icing Fluids The following is extracted from the Boeing "Airliner". October-December Investigation has shown that both Type I and Type II aircraft ground de-icing/anti-icing fluids cause a transitory lift loss and drag increase. Aerodynamic effects of most of the older generation ( and.
Provision of ground-based icing simulation facilities (two icing tunnels and a helicopter icing facility) accelerated the development and testing of de-icing technologies during the s and s. The few helicopters that having ice protection on the main rotor system use a de-icing system as the power required to anti-ice a main rotor system is extremely high. One of these is the Sikorsky S92 and it uses heater mats in the rotor blades to melt a thin layer of ice in contact with the blade surface causing the remaining ice to shed from.
the Ground 3. Aircraft de-icing/anti-icing methods with fluids Scope This section of the document establishes the minimum requirements for ground-based aircraft de-icing/anti-icing methods with fluids and procedures to facilitate the safe operation of transport aircraft during icing conditions (see . This can be done by considering the effects of the actuator faults ensued from the icing condition upon the helicopter dynamics. Thus, one can represent the actuator faults as perturbations on the control input channels , ,  and recast the input matrix B 2 in (1) as (14) B ˆ 2 = B 2 F where F is a diagonal matrix with η i.

HELICOPTER SAFETY Vol. 16 No. 6 For Everyone Concerned with the Safety of Flight November/December F L I G H T S A F E T Y F O U N D A T I O N Traditionally, helicopter operating manuals have addressed the issue of inflight icing and its effect on helicopter performance with a caution or a warning to the pilot to avoid an icing environment.
Ice shed during in-flight de icing is not of a size which could create a hazard should it survive in frozen form until reaching the ground below. However, there has been a long history of ice falls from aircraft waste drain masts, a few of which have caused minor property damage and occasionally come close to hitting and injuring people.
ICING Aircraft icing is one of the major weather haz ards to aviation. Icing is a cumulative hazard. It r~duces aircraft efficiency by increasing weight, re ducing lift, decreasing thrust, and increasing drag.
As shown in fig each effect tends to either slow the aircraft or force it downward. Icing also. Flying into known or potential icing situations without thorough knowledge of icing and its effects should be avoided. Pilots need to know the adverse effects of icing on aircraft systems and control, as well as procedures to be adopted during icing encounters.
Here’s an overview of what you should know about aircraft icing. the ground and cause ice to form on aircraft surfaces during ground operations, takeoff, and landing if the surface temperature is below freezing (Porter J. Perkins and William J.
Rieke, In-Flight Icing. Ohio, ). Along a cold front, the cold air plows under the warm air, lifting it more rapidly and resulting in the formation of moist cumulus.
Fig. 44 shows the effects of icing on helicopter pitch-attitude θresponse at a forward velocity of X ˙ = 5 knots in five different icing conditions. It can be seen that at 5 knots forward velocity, rotor icing reduces the peak value of pitch-attitude response.
TYPES OF ICING. The three main types of ice accretion, in order of their hazard to flying, are as follows: CLEAR ICE. Clear ice or glaze ice is a heavy coating of glassy ice which forms when flying in areas with high concentration of large supercooled water droplets, such as cumuliform clouds and freezing rain.
If a helicopter hovering out-of-ground-effect descends into a ground-effect hover, blade efficiency increases because of the more favorable induced flow.
As efficiency of the rotor system increases, the pilot reduces blade pitch angle to remain in the ground-effect hover.
Less power is required to maintain however in-ground-effect than for the. A pilot’s ability to predict the performance of a helicopter is extremely important.
It helps to determine how much weight the helicopter can carry before takeoff, if the helicopter can safely hover at a specific altitude and temperature, the distance required to climb above obstacles, and what the.
John Peltier. Aircraft have sure come a long way when it comes to all-weather capability. One of the biggest advances is how we can deal with ice that can potentially form, or has formed, on the aircraft with aircraft deicing equipment.
There are two types of systems with drastically different purposes to keep you -ice is used before flying into icing conditions, to keep ice from. Why is an engine run-up necessary before each leg. Josh on To illustrate why it is necessary on each leg of a flight not just the first flight of the day: Back when I was in college I decided to take a cross country trip to build some time, I flew the aircraft (a Cessna M) to a destination about an hour and a half away.
Redstone Test Center's icing team uses a HISS-equipped CH to create an artificial ice cloud for testing. (Photo: RTC) The FIPS allows the AW and AW to fly into more extreme, known icing conditions that would confine other helicopters in their categories to the ground or in the hangar.
A method to predict the effects of rotor icing on the flight characteristics of a UHA helicopter is presented. By considering both natural ice shedding and different types of ice accretion due to local temperature variations on the blade surface, an improved rotor icing model was developed.

The reduction depends on the in-flight icing conditions; more than a 70% reduction is achieved at a liquid-water content (LWC) of g/m 3 and a median-volume diameter (MVD) of 15 μm at 75 m/s with zero angle of attack.
In wet-icing conditions, more than a 30% reduction in power is achieved. Full article. icing such as an icing tanker or an icing wind tunnel.
The effect of the shapes on stall speed, stall warning, handling, and climb performance are determined; degradation of flight characteristics is expected, but not allowed to become worse than the aircraft certification standards. The effect of ice shed into engine induction air inlets.
Icing is hazardous to any aircraft, prop or jet. Here's why: 1) Weight. As ice accumulates on your aircraft, weight increase. With an increase in weight, your performance starts to dramatically decrease. Ice accumulation could even put you outside of weight and balance limitations.
Anti-icing is the process of protecting against the formation of frozen contaminant, snow, ice, or slush on a surface. Engine Anti-Ice The anti-icing system found on most turbine-powered helicopters uses engine bleed air. Bleed air in turbine engines is compressed air taken from.
The aircraft flew into the ground and was destroyed. Handling Effects Aerodynamics of Icing. Wing Stalls. An ice-contaminated wing will stall at a lower angle of attack or higher airspeed than a clean wing.
Minute amounts of ice (equivalent to medium grit sandpaper) covering the leading edges or upper surfaces of wings can increase the stall.

Ice accumulations on the order of a few thousandths of an inch on critical aircraft surfaces have been shown to significantly reduce aircraft lift. During ground operations, it is essential that an aircraft be.
