The FAA, in collaboration with the AOPA Air Safety Foundation, recently updated and reprinted its popular guidelines on icing. AOPA said the Aircraft Icing Safety Advisor “dispels many common misunderstandings that the weight of the ice is what causes danger or that pilots have few options to avoid ice.” With full-color charts and photographs, the safety advisor explains the conditions that may lead to icing, the different kinds of ice a pilot may encounter, hazards caused by icing and steps a pilot can take to escape an icing encounter. Aircraft Icing Safety Advisor is available free of charge at www.aopa.org/asf/publications/.
