Wings seminar: "Breaking the ICE"

"Breaking the ICE!"
Topic: Managing the Hazards of Aircraft Icing During Take-off, Cruise & Landing
On Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 7:00 PM
Location:

Select Number: EA1747613

Description:
Aircraft Icing during flight can be catastrophic! It disrupts the flow of air over the aircraft diminishing the wing's maximum lift and the propeller's thrust. This reduces the angle of attack for maximum lift, which in turn, adversely affects an aircraft's handling characteristics while significantly increasing drag. Don't get caught in this nightmare! By attending this important briefing you will learn the latest strategies for avoiding icing conditions and learn exactly what to do if you experience an inadvertent icing encounter.
