Abstract:

Electrically heated, laminated glass and plastic windshields were evaluated to determine their suitability for use on CV-2A Airplanes. It was concluded that both glass and plastic windshields are satisfactory with respect to anti- and de-icing capabilities however, the glass windshield is more suitable with respect to operational and maintenance suitability. Both windshields are unsuitable with respect to electronic interference. It was recommended that the glass windshield be procured for use on all CV-2 Airplanes and the electronic interference be eliminated. Author
