Aircraft Icing: A Pilot's Guide
A practical approach to one of aviation's most dire and elusive threats: aircraft icing. It seek to equip pilots with functional icing intelligence, observation and translation techniques, cockpit strategies, and risk assessment and management know-how. It covers all aspects of aircraft icing, including ground, airframe and induction, providing a solid foundation in icing theory and physics without superfluous meteorological concepts. It teaches pilots how to interpret icing forecasts and reports, and integrate specific aircraft and engine considerations, and discuses practical procedures to deal with icing conditions throughout flight, from taxi to touchdown. The book includes case study examples of actual icing incidents.
