Recent accidents involving large transport and small general aviation aircraft indicates that misconceptions exists regarding the effect of slight surface roughness caused by ice accumulations on aircraft performance and flight characteristics and the effectiveness of Freezing Point Depressant FPD ground deicing and anti-icing fluids. During development of information contained herein it was recognized that guidance information should be directed to all segments of aviation to include aircraft manufacturers airline engineering, maintenance, service and operations organizations aircraft maintenance and service personnel and aircrews of all aircraft types and categories. Information contained herein therefore is general in nature for basic understanding purposes to facilitate development of standardized procedures and guidance by various segments of the aviation industry.
