Whether you fly in icing conditions or not, if you’re an instrument rated pilot, you MUST watch this recently published FAA icing video! Icing encounters account for many accidents every year and is a subject not well-understood by many in the pilot community. The video is well worth your time and does a good job explaining:
1. How ice accumulation affects the critical angle of attack 2. The potential lack of stall indication to the pilot in icing conditions 3. The difference between wing and tail stalls and how to properly identify which type you are encountering and how to successfully recover.
