Training Program Guidelines for Deicing/Anti-Icing of Aircraft on Ground
This document establishes the minimum criteria for effective training of air carrier and contractor personnel to deice/anti-ice aircraft to ensure the safe operation of aircraft during ground icing conditions. Appendix D specifies guidelines for particular airplane models.
Rationale: SAE G-12T, Training and Quality Programs Committee recommends ARP5149 “Training Program Guidelines for Deicing/Anti-Icing of Aircraft on Ground” be cancelled since the requirements in this ARP have been superseded by Aerospace Standard AS6286 “Training and Qualification Program for Deicing/Anti-icing of Aircraft on the Ground” (including the six corresponding Slash Sheets).
Both documents address training for aircraft ground de/anti-icing, and AS6286 was developed as a global standard with the intention of having it supersede ARP5149. As a result, all the appropriate requirements in the ARP have been carried over to the new AS (i.e., there are no aspects of the ARP that are not covered by the superseding AS). As such, ARP5149 should be cancelled and considered for “Archival Use Only”.
This proposal to cancel SAE ARP5149 is based on the guidance provided in the SAE Aerospace Council document “Organization and Operating Procedures”, section 7.4.2, which identifies that one of the grounds for cancelling a ballot is “when its technical requirements are totally superseded by another document”.
