Watching flying wild alaska and was wondering what is in deicing fluid.
I'm learning here. Who da thunk it?He actually drives SEVERAL Buicks because he is such a smart indivudual and his answer to this topic was spot-on. Depending on which fluid is used they have hold-over times that cannot be exceeded or they have to be de-iced all over again, so has soon as they finish the aircraft it HAS to get airborne and cannot sit in the conga line waiting for the active too long, we turn off the packs (air conditioning) as the fluid is being sprayed on the aircraft as the glycol smell will fill the aircraft and annoy the passengers.
