#AOPA Airframe Icing

@AOPA posted a great video on icing Friday (http://ow.ly/rXPLx ).  It’s particularly timely considering the winter rain storm drenching parts of the US.

Rather than simply re-Tweeting, I’m taking this chance to emphasize the importance of understanding your aircraft and how it behaves under a variety of conditions.  This video focuses on conventionally configured planes.  A canard configuration will be different.  In a small helicopter, weight can become an issue very quickly.

What has your experience been with icing?
