Abstract:

We Americans, more than any other group, depend heavily on ice for our creature comforts. If you dont believe it, try serving us a warm soda, But as fond as we are of ice, even in our water to the amazement of Europeans, one place nobody wants it is on an aircraft. You dont have to know a lot about aerodynamics to know that an aircraft weighted down with ice isnt going to fly very well. The more we know about where icing occurs and how it affects aircraft, the better equipped well be to avoid conditions where icing is a hazard.
