The FAA has released its updated de-icing programme for winter 2014/15. The guidance includes updates of its holdover tables outlining aircraft de-icing procedures and is accompanied by a new video from the FAA offering advice on best practice for snow and ice control.
The video is the first of a series of airport safety videos from the FAA. The next video is planned for early 2015 and will cover the importance of wildlife strike reporting.
This week has also seen the FAA publish a revised version of its master minimum equipment list for the 777 aircraft. Updates can be viewed on the FAA website.
