The ice-free status of a de-iced airframe at the hold will depend on the nature of the de-icing mechanism(s) employed at the airport, the local meteorological conditions and the associated taxi time between de-icing and take-off clearance. Within the absolute requirement for an ice free airframe at the time of take-off clearance, the operational support system should consider both the optimal use of the de-icing facilities and the constraints of a departure sequence that maximizes runway capacity. De-icing resources are managed through A-CDM procedures contributing to predictability and enabling Airport and ANSP to know the flights to de-ice and establish sequences accordingly.
