AIRCRAFT GROUND DE/ANTI-ICING FLUID HOLDOVER TIME FIELD TESTING PROGRAM FOR THE 1996-97 WINTER

At the request of the TDC, APS Aviation Inc. undertook a research program to further advance pre-flight deicing/anti-icing technology. While a number of objectives of the test program are covered by other related reports, the primary objectives specifically addressed in this document were: To test the new type III and type IV fluids over the entire range of conditions covered by the holdover time tables; to conduct laboratory cold-soaked and low temperature freezing fog tests to complete the substantiation of the type I and type II holdover time tables; to collect weather data on winter storms to assess the precipitation, wind and temperature values which impose boundary conditions to the holdover times given in the tables; and to develop a procedure for the evaluation of fluid dry-out characteristics and to determine the dry-out characteristics of fluids.
