Safe Flight Instrument Corporation of White Plains, NY announced today their new Icing Conditions Detector (ICD) available for all aircraft types. The company highlighted the importance of this new development in avionic safety equipment by choosing Minus 5o Ice Bar located at Pointe Orlando as the venue to introduce the new product.
Ice accretion is a serious hazard to all aircraft. Even miniscule amounts of frost, snow, ice, or slush on the aerodynamic and/or control surfaces of the aircraft can cause significant loss in lift and flight control capability. The most effective means to protect against this often catastrophic threat is to avoid it all together with Safe Flight’s Icing Condition Detector.
The system, currently under evaluation by a variety of airframe types, provides an instantaneous warning when icing conditions are present and before ice accretion has an opportunity to reduce vehicle performance and controllability. Comprised of a single line replaceable unit, the lightweight, low drag safety enhancing equipment is ideal for operations in all modes of flight.
To learn more about the ICD, visit Safe Flight at NBAA booth 1416 where the company will have a system on display.
