Frequently Asked Questions

What is a non-hazard system?

An aircraft with a non-hazard de-icing system is provided with supplemental safety features for use during inadvertent icing encounter, while determining and executing the best available exit from those conditions. B/E’s offering for the Beech Bonanza is a non-hazard, de-ice system.

What is the difference between a FIKI and a non-hazard de-ice system?

Actual icing flight tests are much more substantial for a FIKI certification. In addition, FIKI requirements include additional system modifications such as back -up electrical and vacuum systems, heated stall indicator vanes and flutter analysis of the airframe.

Is this a FIKI system?

No. B/E is offering a non-hazard de-ice system for the Bonanza. There are two primary reasons for the selection of the non-hazard system:

  1. A customer survey performed by B/E told us that our customers are interested in purposely entering known icing conditions.
  2. The cost of a FIKI system would have been significantly higher.

What is FIKI?

It is a de-icing system certified for Flight Into Known Icing. With such a system, a PIC can enter any forecast or actual reported icing environments. However, please note that there are icing phenomena that can exceed the ability of any known icing system, so pilot judgment is critical, just as it is in many areas of decision making.

How do I decide whether I can fly in icing conditions?

This is a complicated decision, involving many variables. A pilot must consider FAA regulations, current and forecast conditions along with aircraft condition and personal minimums.

What advantage does a non-hazard de-ice system provide, other than the obvious ‘get out of jail’ (aid while exiting icing) support?

The pilot is provided more flexibility and security in flight planning. As most pilots who fly in the northern regions during wintry conditions know, AIRMET’s for icing are issued regularly. However, a pilot might reasonably launch on a trip on a day when an AIRMET is issued for 8,000 MSL and above, but encounter icing at 6,000. In such a case, the non-hazard de-ice system provides supplemental safety features for use during inadvertent icing encounter, while determining and executing the best available exit from those conditions.

Why would I need a de-icing system at all?

This is a personal choice, but the benefits provided by B/E’s non-hazard de-icing system include additional security when ice is inadvertently encountered, immediate activation, light-weight and non-corrosive operation. In addition, the value of the aircraft will increase by some portion of the system cost. In addition, the opportunity to fly when there is potential for icing indicated by forecasts or AIRMET’s, but not SIGMET’s or PIREP’s for icing is considered to be an advantage on appropriately equipped aircraft.

How much weight will I be adding?

48-52 pounds depending upon configuration.

Is there any speed reduction?

1-3 knots, based on conditions.

How does the Ice Shield system stack up against the TKS™, Weeping Wing non-hazard system?

  Weight? Activation? Corrosive? Endurance?
TKS 108 lbs 20 min prior to icing encounter Yes 3 hours on low setting
B/E Ice Shield 52 lbs Immediate No Unlimited

I have tip tanks; will these interfere with adding wing boots?

No, all of the tip tanks we are aware of attach at the end of the wing, past the end of the wing boot.

My Bonanza has a Heated Propeller kit from the factory; can I still purchase your product?

Of course, our Wing, Heated Windshield Panel and Ice Viewing Light kits are compatible with the OE Propeller kit and your kit cost will be reduced to reflect the existing system.

How long will installation take?

About two weeks for the full system.

Where will the installation be accomplished?

At Tiffin Aire, Inc., a well-known and respected FBO in NW Ohio.

Does the quoted price include installation?

Yes.

Can I have other services accomplished during the installation without lengthening downtime?

Yes. You should work with Tiffin Aire to arrange details. Billing for supplemental services will be done by Tiffin Aire, separate from the de-ice system billing. Contact number is 1-419-447-4263, 1-800-553-7767, or 1-800-458-2487.

What is necessary to begin the purchase process?

Call us at 1-800-767-6899 or visit the configurator on our website at IceShield.com/Bonanza to determine your preferred configuration.

Next, B/E will provide you with a pro-forma invoice for approval, and will schedule an input date for you with Tiffin Aire.

Finally, B/E will collect a $500.00 deposit, and will set the wheels in motion.

What are the payment terms?

$500.00 down payment to complete the booking process, and balance due at delivery of the aircraft back to the owner.
