The Aircraft Ice & Rain Protection and Control System Trainer incorporates all aspects of de-icing and rain protection system found in an aircraft. The trainer offers the opportunity to the students to physically see the various components and assemblies of the system and to understand the interaction between them.
This fully functional trainer incorporates a pneumatic wing de-ice system using a vacuum/pressure ejector boot control valve and pressure switches. An electric motor driven vacuum pump provides system pressure and suction. Propeller deicing is done with an electrically heated propeller boot.A timer control operates the cycle of the propeller de-ice system. Windshield heating is done through internally built heating elements.
