On-Demand Webinar: Improving Winter Airfield Operations With Centralized Deicing Facilities

About This Webinar

A centralized deicing facility (CDF) provides air traffic controllers and airlines with a dedicated location on the airfield for safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly aircraft deicing operations. This webinar discusses the planning and design considerations for deicing facilities. The presenters of this webinar include design consultants, airline representatives, and airport operators with recent experience on several large CDF projects. The key elements covered include case studies of CDFs at Chicago O’Hare and Memphis International Airport with a focus on: (1) siting and geometry; (2) glycol distribution and collection; (3) environmental friendliness; and (4) smart pad technology.
