ASI Message

Into the Ice

By BRUCE LANDSBERG

The icing season is upon us, and
every so often we are reminded that
it can and does bring down large and
small aircraft: Cases in point-Air
Florida Boeing 737, Washington,
District of Columbia; American
Eagle ATR 42-Roselawn, Indiana;
Cirrus SR22-Norden, California
(airsafetyinstitute.org/acs_icing); and the subject of
this issue's accident case study "Delayed Reaction," a
TBM 700 near Morristown, New Jersey.
Out of these, all but one, the SR22, were Flight-intoKnown-Icing (FIKI) approved. The exact causal factors
are different in each case, but the point is that supercooled liquid droplets can be disastrous no matter what

size aircraft. Unlike thunderstorms where
life gets ugly immediately, icing problems
come on gradually over the course of
minutes. This usually gives the pilot warning
that he or she is in an unfriendly part of the
sky and it's time to do something. It's subtle,
unlike severe turbulence, and gradually
chokes the lift out of the wings, the tail, and
sometimes the engine. We need all those
parts and pieces to fly.
In the case of the TBM 700 over New Jersey,
it was literally only a matter of three or
four minutes before the aircraft was ground
bound. So as you fly and train think about
escape plans before getting into the clouds or
freezing precipitation. Minutes matter.

The Air Safety Institute has considerable
educational resources to remind pilots
of the perils ice can bring about in
flight-from recorded webinars to
videos, online courses, and accident case
studies at ASI's Ice Week safety spotlight
(airsafetyinstitute.org/iceweek).
