Are You Ready for the Ice?
Written by FAAST   
Friday, 19 December 2014 16:11

faastWhether you want to admit it or not, winter is coming. While the season does offer opportunities for days of "severe clear" and improved engine performance, it's also a time when icing encounters can wreak havoc for GA flyers. If you have any questions about GA anti-icing/deicing systems, be sure to check out page 21 of the current issue of FAA Safety Briefing for our "FIKI Wiki." The article, by James Williams, covers what kinds of systems are available for airplanes, how they differ, and how they many not all give you the same protections. The magazine is available online at: http://www.faa.gov/news/safety_briefing/

California Avgas Lawsuit Settled - The Center for Environmental Health, which filed a lawsuit in 2011seeking to prohibit the sale of leaded gasoline in California, has reached a settlement, NATA said on Tuesday. Under the agreement signed last week, FBOs at 23 airports will provide warnings of lead exposure to individuals residing within one kilometer of the airport, will post warning signs at the airports, and will pay about $550,000 in penalties and legal costs. The fuel distributors also agreed to offer for sale the lowest-lead fuel that is commercially available, and to make mogas available to FBOs that request it.
