De Icing

Ever seen the big airliners get de iced? Well we get it too. Weather its clearing off ice that has developed while the aircraft has been sitting, or clearing off the ice that built up on the way in, the aircraft cannot take off with any ice on the critical surfaces. This is an aircraft getting ready to depart..notice the visibility. We can take off with as little as 1/4 mile. After deicing, we may only have a couple minutes to get out before more ice builds up.
