Main content

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is sponsoring a workshop to discuss the safety and efficiency impacts of in-flight icing on the National Airspace System (NAS) and also internationally. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is assisting in organizing the workshop.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together diverse representatives from throughout the aviation industry in order to:

  • Promote a common understanding of the impacts of icing conditions on various elements of the NAS, such as air traffic management, airline flight operations, general aviation, and aviation weather forecasting;
  • Examine on-going research and development of icing mitigation capabilities; and
  • Explore possible government and industry cooperative efforts to address in-flight icing issues.

Topics for presentation and discussion include:

  • User community perspectives (airlines, dispatchers, pilots, safety, international, weather forecasters);
  • Observing and reporting Icing conditions;
  • Icing forecasting; and
  • Future challenges (data access, new capabilities, probabilistic forecasting, building business cases, visions).
