FSLabs Posts Deicing Demonstration Video

Flight Sim Labs has released a new video demonstrating the developers recently announced icing model to be included as part of the upcoming Airbus 319-X.  The video shows an aircraft on the tarmac with snow on the wings, shortly thereafter, the actual deicing process is initiated via GSX integration.  Everything looks very good and the simulated process seems to be implemented well.  The developer states in the video description, “Note the snow on the wing being washed off and replaced with Type IV deicing fluid, which gives the wing a green hue when complete.”.

Check out the video below.

In regards to those who do not have GSX, the developer notes via Facebook, “Don’t worry – you can still deice the aircraft through the MCDU – where you can choose the fluid type and concentrate and initiate the deicing procedure.’.

Love them or hate them, this certainly is an interesting feature addition to the product.  We’ll of course post any further information or previews as they become available.
