Guidelines for Aircraft De-icing / Anti-Icing Operations

Test data indicate that ice, snow, or frost formations having a thickness and surface roughness similar to medium or coarse sandpaper on the leading edge or upper surface of a wing can reduce lift by as much as 30 percent and increase drag by 40 percent. To put it plainly, the purpose of the clean aircraft concept is to make sure that, before takeoff, the aircraft will meet its certified performance and handling characteristics.
