Aviation Safety Industries' extensive research, development and engineering has developed an innovative and comprehensive 'Business Method Plan for Deicing Aircraft' for improved deicing efficiency.
The innovative element of the plan being:

1. The improvements in deicing efficiency are due to a specifically designed unilateral system for the method and practices of deicing aircraft for all cold climate airports of the United States. Specifically designed and engineered are three unimagined U.S. patented deicing apparatuses to facilitate our innovative perspective plan for an economical and expedient airports Fixed Base of Operation for aircraft ground deicing. This improved Method and Practices Plan by design, prioritizing passenger flight crew safety, by employing a state-of-the-art ice detection, operations communication and recording system, for a practical and simplified practices of certifying an aircraft airworthiness before takeoff, replacing the current incomprehensible practice, whereby the Captain and First Officer, alone are charged with the responsibility and burden of an impossible task of a FAA conceivably inappropriate regulatory article “Tactical and Visual Checks of the Aircraft”, usually peering out of the port and starboard cabin windows to inspect the wings for ice buildup and virtually undetectable black ice accumulation.

2. The revitalization and economical re-construction of an airports deicing pads designated deicing area, a fixed base of operation located at the head of the takeoff runway for ‘Threshold Deicing’. Threshold Deicing as defined by the ‘Airport Cooperative Research Program, Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration’, in conjunction with the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, ACRP Report 45 ‘De/Anti-Icing Optimization’ Fact Sheet 53 dated April 2011, states the benefits of threshold deicing to include: “Limiting the need for the application of thickened anti-icing fluids as a result of reduced time from the end of deicing until actual aircraft takeoff. This would also result in reduced glycol being dispensed over the airport during the takeoff run”. “Reduced the need for repeat deicing as holdover times are less likely to be exceeded”. “Aircraft ground deicing activities at threshold deicing sites have been proven to be operationally effective and provide numerous benefits to the aircraft operator community”. Regulatory Considerations: “Safe and efficient aircraft operations are a primary importance in the development of any aircraft deicing facility”. FAA advisory circular (AC) No: 150.5300-14B Design of the aircraft deicing facility “Discusses size, sitting, environmental runoff mitigation, and operational needs for a deicing facility and how to maximize deicing capabilities of maintaining maximum safety and efficiency. Eliminating the practice of airport apron aircraft deicing requiring the use of Glycol type IV anti-icing fluid will consequently result in the abandonment of the FAA extensive holdover time guidelines for the application of anti-icing aircraft”.

3. Our patented claim is to virtually eliminate all flight cancellations and delays while maintaining regular flight departure intervals, every 1.5 to 2 minutes, accommodating the busiest of international airports, during winter weather events of 45 mi./h wind velocity with freezing rain or moderate ice pellets in small hail.
