CT2kflyer Posted December 30, 2011 Report Share Posted December 30, 2011 A Pilatus PC-12 (N128CM) crashed in Butte, Mont.on March 22, 2009 killing all aboard. The NTSB blamed the pilot for not using a required anti-icing additive in the fuel system, which led to a weight and balance destabilization, lost of control, and the deaths of 13 family members. Being fully aware that the FDCT is a totally different aircraft, with a different fuel, engine, and fuel type, I am wondering if there is an icing hazard with winter flying of my CT2k? My aircraft is sitting in an unheated hanger, fueled with MOGAS or 100LL, not getting a lot of air-time. My engine does not incorporate CARB Heat in it's systems, and was designed to operate without CARB heat. So, do I have cause to be concerned for safety of flight issues if I fly it from say, Lincoln, NE to Longmont, CO in late January? The odds of flying at below freezing temps is probably near 100%.
