Icing Conditions

Recommended Posts

I posted this on the bleed air thread awhile back. Just curious if the 747 or MD11 for FSX are modeled to simulate ice on flight surfaces or engines when flying in such conditions if anti ice systems are not turned on.John

I've been wondering about the same. The MD-11 will complain if anti-ice is on when not necessary, but the same alert is not displayed in icing conditions, so some level of icing simulation is implemented.Tom

We do not simulate icing, sorry. I'm not aware of any warning for icing conditions, that's probably something pilots have to know when to do on their own. (in clouds, precipitation in the area etc)

I've seen the warning message "ICE DETECTED" (or similar) once - and that was in rain and a TAT of -3C. I've also seen the message "NO ICE DETECTED" a few times after switching AI on.Alex
