Certification of engines for operation in natural icing conditions has been a requirement for all aircraft since the beginning of flight. Icing is one of the most significant threats to aviation safety, and today’s modern engines are even more vulnerable than the previous generation of gas turbines. This presentation will show the evolution of engine icing certification from the 1940’s through to the present and illustrate the issues facing future engines.
