CERTIF-ICE and COMAC Natural Icing Campaign
The COMAC ARJ-21 700 arrives in Canada to begin its Natural Flight Icing Certification campaign, conducted by CERTIF-ICE, in Windsor, Ontario.

Welcome to CERTIF-ICE

CERTIF-ICE possesses the know-how and resources to facilitate the icing certification process for customers in a number of ways, complemented by a judicious use of advanced CFD tools for icing, thus guaranteeing the shortest and most complete path to certification:

  • Project Management: CERTIF-ICE experts can become part of an Integrated Product Team (IPT) as team member or leader to ensure successful completion of the icing certification process. CERTIF-ICE experts will interact with specialists from all disciplines to establish effective communication channels, and to be involved in the complete process from the beginning to obtaining the Type Certificate.
  • Interaction with Airworthiness Authorities: CERTIF-ICE can negotiate the certification basis, prepare a compliance plan and have it approved by airworthiness authorities. In addition, CERTIF-ICE can present and obtain approval for engineering data and documentation for icing certification.
  • Test Facility Design: CERTIF-ICE can select and prepare any test facility required in the icing certification process. CERTIF-ICE can also perform design work for any hardware, test model or instrumentation required for testing.
  • Test Preparation and Support: CERTIF-ICE can establish a test plan and matrix according to airworthiness regulations and applicable advisory material. In addition, CERTIF-ICE can also perform any analyses required to support testing such as similitude analyses for example.
  • Process Integration and Streamlining: CERTIF-ICE can establish a repeatable and documented process for icing certification if such does not exist. CERTIF-ICE can also assist in streamlining or improving an existing one. This includes conducting any required validations.
  • Design and Analysis: In addition to performing the initial design and analysis of ice protection systems, CERTIF-ICE can use its vast analytical and computational expertise to improve a design, if needed, during the icing certification process.
  • Engineering Documentation: CERTIF-ICE can prepare all necessary engineering documentation to be submitted to airworthiness authorities for the icing certification process.
