Icing wind tunnel test on the sensor of transport aircraft has been successfully completed in FL-61 which is a 0.6m continuous transonic wind tunnel of AVIC ARI at Shenyang. The test was carried out in May and was used in the certification of the aircraft sensor under icing conditions.

FL-61 wind tunnel was reviewed by representatives of FAA and CAAC and was accepted to generate icing certification data for the aircraft sensor.

Stable icing conditions were generated in FL-61 during the test to verify the sensor anti-icing capabilities under continuous maximum icing conditions for 45 minutes and intermittent maximum icing conditions. Representatives of FAA and CAAC witnessed the test process and accepted the data generated for use in the certification of the aircraft sensor.

This is the first time for the facility, instrumentation and procedures of FL-61 to be recognized by the airworthiness authorities and customers to produce acceptable data for certification since it is put into use in 2016. And AVIC ARI can provide it to customers to support civil aircrafts and components in icing certification.
