This course is primarily intended for the general aviation pilot who flies aircraft certified for flight in icing, although much of the information is applicable to all pilots. With an operational focus, this course provides tools pilots can use to deal with in-flight icing. Emphasis is on avoidance, detection and exit, as well as the effects of ice accretion on performance and handling and the particular hazard of Supercooled Large Droplet (SLD) icing.
This self-guided training aid contains imagery captured on NASA Icing Research flights, animation, pilot testimonials, case studies, and interactive demonstrators. In addition, interactive exercises allow the user to assess his or her operational understanding of the key points.
The course is organized into three instructional modules. Each of these modules contains information about aspects of in-flight icing as well as exercises to apply your knowledge in an operational setting. Use the menu below to visit any of the available course sections.
