This document establishes the minimum criteria for effective training of air carrier and contractor personnel to deice/anti-ice aircraft to ensure the safe operation of aircraft during ground icing conditions. Appendix D specifies guidelines for particular airplane models.
The purpose for this revision is to include additional recommendations and refine existing recommendations from experiences gained and advancing deicing technologies implemented since the previous publication.
Revision B of this document encompasses updated information in conjunction with other applicable SAE documents and editorial changes. Recommendations for trainer qualification and the requirement for train-the-trainer in order to ensure training is performed by competent and qualified individuals. Provision is recommended for the use of Computer Based Training/e-Learning/Distant Learning and Computer Based Deicing Simulators for deicing/anti-icing training. Language proficiency recommendations have been recommended for ensuring qualification and competency for personnel communicating deicing/anti-icing verbiage. Appendix D has been revised to incorporate new aircraft types, and revise anti-icing permissible fluid application areas. Within Appendix D, existing diagrams were also carefully reviewed to ensure accuracy, and any necessary modifications were made. Appendix E contains standards for qualifying Computer Based Deicing Simulators, and capabilities for training elements in which they may be utilized as part of. Appendix F contains the ICAO Language Proficiency Rating Scale.
