Has anyone experienced leading edge icing lately?

Recommended Posts

I've been flying around the world and only icing I was able to pick up is on windshield (no structural icing whatsoever) which making me wonder if this is bug! Am I missing something?

the visual icing effects currently in MSFS can be described as theatrical at best.  I've had the displeasure of collecting ice in a variety of airplanes, of which none looked like how MSFS portrays icing.  I understand MSFS does include the aerodynamic effects, which is nice, but yes...it seems the visual icing model is the same whether the aircraft is stationary on the ground or in flight.

Yep, icing is visually still there. Not sure its accumulation is having much impact on the airframe / performance in most planes though.

Well I guess they need to make a slider now for icing as well. Why can't they design a sim that emulates the real world the best it can with the common weather problems that if real pilots flew a GA plane into icing it would turn them into a brick. I haven't flown GA lately in the sim.  But when I was flying the sim in earlier updates It provided consequences and repercussion to that behavior.

  I think they ought to make it as real as they can possibly virtually get then add the sliders to tone things down for the others that want the drone to fly it's self ooops I mean plane 😉

P.S. Years ago when I was working line service. Had a line buddy I worked with went through flight school was working the line got a job flying mooney's first run caught icing real bad barely landed the plane showed me pictures of the ice on the wings with his phone it was nuts.  He said he basically landed the plane almost fire walled. And the company was still trying to push him through the weather. He said he quit right there on the spot.

And I hope he reported them, to save some other pilot at least.  


Call me Bob or Rob, I don't mind, but I prefer Rob.

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio.

All I know is he showed back up at his old line service job.  With a phone loaded with icing pictures of a mooney 😮 And nothing good to say about his latest aviation job.  Take note this was about 15-20 years ago. And the reason I remember this is I had to work his shifts till they worked on a replacement.  Kinda peeD me off but hey he was trying to get his foot in the door.

  Needless to say didn't have to replace his position showed back up about as quick as icing up.

Either way icing needs to be implemented like it was.    And once again provide a slider for those that want it different.

Such practices are incredibly common in the freight dog world. Especially for the people flying smaller pistons. I often wonder why the FAA spends so much time and energy going after drone owners for "safety" reasons when every day we've got hundreds of barely held together prop jobs being flown by exhausted pilots in conditions the planes weren't designed to handle, and the company usually only gets caught if there's a crash.
