Air Facts video tip: understanding airframe ice

Editor’s note: This is the first post in a regular series. Every month, our Air Facts Video Tip will share brief segments to help you improve your aviation knowledge and keep your skills sharp. The focus is on weather, instrument flying and real world tips.

Fall flying weather is here, with shorter days and cooler temperatures. That means airframe icing will start to become a threat again for many pilots. This month’s tip is a great way to knock the rust off and refresh your memory of in-flight icing basics. Where do you find the most ice? What’s the difference between clear and rime ice? What are some avoidance strategies? All of those topics – and more – are covered in this tip, which is taken from Sporty’s Instrument Rating Course.
