  • 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.
