SE139: Ice Detection (R-D)

Background

This safety enhancement outlines research and development (R&D) topics intended to improve in-flight detection and monitoring of ice contamination for all possible conditions. This enhancement initially addresses turboprop aircraft equipped with non-evaporative ice protection systems and unpowered flight controls and hard-wing turbojet aircraft with super critical airfoils (non-high lift leading edge device).

This safety enhancement is not currently on the CAST Plan, but might be included in the future. In that event, the attached Implementation Plan would be revised prior to inclusion.
