Deicing Guidelines Revised

 - September 3, 2012, 4:00 PM

With fall approaching in the northern hemisphere, the FAA has issued Notice 8900.196, a revised document offering updates to the agency’s deicing program for the coming winter flying season. The update includes holdover times as well as a list of deicing and anti-icing fluids. Although the notice is specifically written for Part 121 & 135 commercial operators, the guidance, such as the link to the FAA website with the Agency’s holdover times by fluid type, will be valuable to anyone who flies.
