  • Abstract:
    The Office of Inspector General, Department of Transportation; conducted a

    followup inspection of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Deicing

    Program. We initiated this study to observe deicing operations as a followup to

    our report on the FAA Deicing Program, (No. E5-FA-7-001, dated October 2, 1996).

    The objective of this inspection was to determine if deicing operations at

    selected airports were in compliance with FAA regulations.

    At the two airports -- La Guardia Airport, New York, New York, and O'Hare

    International Airport, Chicago, Illinois, where we observed deciing operations,

    we found deicing operations are in compliance with FAA Deicing Program

    regulations. For example, air carriers canceled, or delayed, flights because

    of adverse weather; aircraft appeared to be free of snow and ice at takeoff; air

    carriers at O'Hare were using new, longer lasting anti-icing fluids that

    increase holdover times (i.e., the elapsed time before an aircraft must repeat

    deicing fluid application); and FAA, airport operators, and air carriers were

    working together to avoid expired holdover times for aircraft.
