De-icing measures for private jets

The importance of de-icing explained

In winter, a private jet is subjected to the elements, and therefore it will be covered in ice and snow when left outside. From the early months of the cold season, it is legally required to perform de-icing manoeuvres before take off.

How does a private jet get de-iced?

De-icing fluid, measures and precautions

Have you ever hired a private jet in winter? If you have ever flown private from November to mid-March, it may well be that you have already witnessed one or two de-icing procedures. De-icing happens at the departure airport, and it is a standard procedure to be performed prior to take off.

It is normal for passengers to be on-board and remain seated while the de-icing fluid is sprayed onto the aircraft. Do not be alarmed if you see that the fluid is green or orange; the fluid's colour is a way to retrace easily where it has been sprayed. The nature of the de-icing liquid is similar to the liquids you may spray on your car's window screen, hence it has de or anti-icing properties. When de-icing is performed while you are on board, you can rest assured that take off will be soon.
