SE133: Turboprop Aircraft Ice Detection Systems
|Category:||CAST SE Plan|
This safety enhancement reduces accidents and incidents caused by in-flight icing encounters by adapting and implementing automatic ice detection and alerting systems on turboprop aircraft that have non-evaporative ice-protection systems and non-powered flight controls, and are 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.
