Flight Safety Considerations
- Altimeter Temperature Error Correction, is applied to altimeters to compensate for error caused by deviation from ISA conditions.
- Aircraft Ground De/Anti Icing, procedures serve three purposes: removal of any frozen or semi frozen moisture from critical external surfaces of an aircraft on the ground prior to flight; and/or, protection of those surfaces from the effects of such contaminant for the period between treatment and becoming airborne; and/or, removal of any frozen or semi frozen moisture from engine intakes and fan blades and protection of external surfaces from subsequent contamination prior to takeoff.
