Abstract:

The FAA International Conference on Aircraft Inflight Icing, held on May 6-8, 1996, in Springfield, Virginia, was attended by over 400 participants from the U.S. and nineteen foreign countries. The conference included a review of major aspects of airworthiness when operating in icing conditions. It consisted of an opening plenary session, five working group sessions addressing 1 Icing Environmental Characterization, 2 Ice Protection and Ice Detection, 3 Forecasting and Avoidance, 4 Requirements for and Means of Compliance in Icing Conditions Including Icing Simulation Methods, 5 Operational Regulations and Training Requirements, and a closing plenary session. One of the primary areas of concern at the conference was icing due to supercooled large droplets SLD. Volume I of the conference proceedings covers presentations of the speakers at the opening plenary session and the reports of the co-chairs of the working groups at the closing plenary session.
