This document establishes standard phraseology for the communication procedures during aircraft ground deicing operations.
NOTE: The minimum requirements to accomplish an aircraft deicing operation are specified in the AS6285 document.
Clear concise standard phraseology between ground personnel and flight crews is an important part of the de/anti-icing process. It plays a key role in the overall safety of the deicing program. Historically, flight and ground crews have had to deal with differing communication scripts at multiple airport locations. This has led to unsafe situations, including aircraft moving before the deicing process has been fully completed.
