The Importance of Aircraft Deicing Services

Unless you’re a pilot or mechanic, you might not fully understand the need for aircraft deicing services during the colder months, but take it from Range Regional Airport: it’s extremely important! That’s why we’ve collected information about the deicing process and provided some additional information about our aircraft deicing services.

Why is Aircraft Deicing Necessary?

First, aircraft deicing is necessary because it can be critical for safe flight operations. This is because precipitation, contaminants, and lower temperatures affect the surfaces of aircraft by altering airflow. This, in turn, will impact the planes performance and can cause serious safety hazards.

It’s no secret that airplanes are made up of extremely complex components making aircraft deicing services one of the most important ways to prepare for a safe flight.

How Does it Work?

 Aircraft deicing employs a specialized type of fluid that is sprayed on areas, such as the:

  • Propellers
  • Wings
  • Fuselage
  • Nose and tail
  • Engine inlets
  • Fan blades
  • Landing gear
  • Antennas
  • & More!
