De-icing is defined as the removal of ice and snow from parts of the aircraft. This is extremely important for maintaining an aircraft’s safety and performance as, if snow and ice are covering the wings, it changes the air dynamics and disrupts the airflow across the wings’ surface. The lift performance is thus reduced. For this reason, it is absolutely necessary to remove all ice and snow from the aircraft before takeoff.De-icing is the only additional cost that will be charged after the flight by Air Charter, as we unfortunately cannot predict it. Air Charter propose some insurances on small aircraft. Please ask your of Private Aviation Advisor for more information.
