Safe Flight ICD on display at Heli-Expo
January 27, 2015 By Safe Flight Corporation
Feb. 27, 2015, White Plains, N.Y. - Safe Flight Instrument Corporation has announced their new Icing Conditions Detector (ICD) will be on display during Heli-Expo at Booth 4059. The ICD is able to detect icing conditions nearly instantaneously. Safe Flight will have a working ICD displayed on their helicopter product demonstrator during Heli-Expo.
Ice accretion is a serious hazard to all aircraft. Even minuscule amounts of frost, snow, ice, or slush on the aerodynamic and/or control surfaces of the aircraft can cause significant loss in lift and flight control capability. The most effective means to protect against this often catastrophic threat is to avoid it all together with Safe Flight’s Icing Condition Detector.
The system, currently under evaluation by a variety of airframe OEMs, provides an instantaneous warning when icing conditions are present and before ice accretion has an opportunity to reduce aircraft performance and controllability. Comprised of a single line replaceable unit, the lightweight, low drag safety enhancing equipment is ideal for operations in all modes of flight.
