What You Need to Know About Airframe Icing
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Scott Dennstaedt

 

Whether you’re flying during the warm or cold season, it’s critical for pilots to understand the factors associated with airframe icing, especially when flying under instrument flight rules (IFR). Icing is a complex topic and demands a challenging dialogue. Rules of thumb that you may have been taught during your primary training can be dangerous and often replace real weather analysis that is paramount to minimizing your exposure to airframe icing. In this webinar, we will shed some light on how clouds form and how they can become a serious icing hazard to pilots. This includes a discussion on the factors associated with airframe icing and presents the latest analysis tools and techniques that pilots can incorporate to gain the most utility from their aircraft throughout the year without compromising safety.

It's every aircraft owner's worst nightmare, an aircraft mechanical problem that occurs while on a trip far away from home base. This is always stressful. You're stuck somewhere you don't want to be, dependent on shops and mechanics you don't know or trust, and generally far outside your comfort zone. Maintenance expert Mike Busch and his colleagues have guided clients through thousands of these situations. From this experience Mike has developed three simple rules for ensuring the best possible outcome. In this webinar, Mike illustrates these rules by taking you through a number of real-life aircraft on ground situations and how they were resolved.
