SE133: Turboprop Aircraft Ice Detection Systems

Background

This safety enhancement reduces accidents and incidents caused by in-flight icing encounters by implementing automatic ice detection and alerting systems on new type designs of turboprop airplanes that have non-evaporative ice-protection systems and non-powered flight controls, and will be operated in commercial passenger and cargo revenue service. These systems should:

  • Automatically detect ice;
  • Measure the rate of ice accretion: and
  • Provide annunciation to the flightcrew.
