Icing conditions can be brutal for the most part, however pilots train on various types of aircrafts in order to get a feel of how flying or operating an aircraft would be in such hard conditions. The new AW609 is now getting ready for flight tests in icing conditions since the last crash that happened two years ago in October of 2015. The trials will are going to be on the Leonardo helicopter division’s AW609 and it’s going to be in Marquette, Michigan which can be very cold and in some cases very harsh conditions to fly in. The testing will first begin in Philadelphia but soon will be moved to Michigan for various reasons but most important it will confirm the AW609 aircraft performance and its ability to cope in harsh but known conditions.
Once the aircraft passes all the testing trials it can finally be certified for airworthiness from the FAA, this will trigger the AW609 Aircraft manufacturer to go ahead with full production in order to meet their sales requirement. Manufacturing should have been on already but due to the crash that happened last year it left only two prototypes planes to fly in around the Philadelphia airport and one flying in Italy. The new prototype plane will have all the right modifications in order to ensure no accidents happen and start the clock on production.
