This safety enhancement reduces accidents and incidents caused by icing encounters by improving situational awareness during low-visibility operations and flight in icing conditions through the development and use of smart-pitch guidance systems on all new type design airplanes. The use of smart-pitch guidance systems helps prevent over-rotation in conjunction with a low-energy state or aerodynamic degradation due to the presence of ice on critical flight surfaces.
