White Plains, New York (Thursday February 26, 2015) — Safe Flight Instrument Corporation of White Plains, NY announced today 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 miniscule 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.
To learn more about the ICD, visit Safe Flight at Heli-Expo Booth 4059 and see the ICD on display with Safe Flight’s other safety products for rotorcraft.
