Cessna has joined with the FAA and the Regional Air Cargo Carriers Association (RACCA) for a Caravan “educational and awareness campaign.” The coalition “will pool resources to enhance existing operational procedures in harsh environments, including operation in icing conditions,” said the RACCA, whose members fly the overwhelming majority of Caravans. Caravans have been plagued by a number of recent icing accidents, and the turboprop single is the subject of several new icing-related equipment and operation requirements.
