Sporty’s offers an extensive series of icing programs in one package, including one CD-ROM and one DVD, produced at NASA’s John Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
“A Pilot’s Guide to In-Flight Icing” is a CD-ROM that presents pilots with operational information and tools to avoid and detect ice and minimize exposure. The program discusses exit strategies during each phase of flight, the effects of ice on aircraft performance, control upsets (wing and tail stalls) and recovery procedures.
The second disc is a NASA-produced DVD that includes four educational programs, including “Icing for General Aviation Pilots,” which uses special ice accretion imagery to help explain how ice can affect performance and eventually lead to wing and tail stalls. In-flight footage and interviews with NASA pilots explain recovery techniques that could save your life.
