Managing the Hazards of Aircraft Icing
Aircraft Icing, why it forms on aircraft and what to do about it.
Date and Time:
Tuesday, February 20, 2018, starting at 19:00 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Chris Dumont
Brief Description:

Aircraft Icing during flight can be catastrophic. It disrupts the flow of air over the aircraft diminishing the wing's maximum lift and propeller's thrust thus reducing the angle of attack for maximum lift, which in turn, adversely affects an aircraft's handling characteristics while significantly increasing drag.

A huge THANK YOU to the Chief Mark Ubry and the Lawrence Township Police Department for helping us with a new location in the Trenton Area!

We would also like to thank Chris Dumont for sharing his extensive knowledge with us!

Know a pilot bring a pilot!

Wind Tunnel and Flight Tests have shown that frost, snow, and ice accumulations on the leading edge or upper surfaces of the wing, no thicker or rougher than a piece of coarse sandpaper can reduce lift by 30% and increase drag up to 40%. Larger accumulations can reduce lift even more and can increase drag by 80% or more. Even aircraft equipped for flight into icing conditions are significantly affected by ice accumulation on the unprotected areas.

A NASA study showed that close to 30% of the total drag associated with an ice encounter remained after all the protected surfaces were cleared. Non-protected surfaces may include antennas, flap hinges, fuselage frontal area, windshield wipers, wing struts, fixed landing gear etc. With the approach of fall and winter, this is a MUST attend event.

Chris Dumont will discuss the formation and development of "ice" in the atmosphere, including the different types of ice formation on the structural surfaces of the aircraft. In addition, Chris will talk about stalling of both the wing and tail sections of the aircraft.
