Ms. Nina Encounters Moderate Icing

Cirrus SR22 (FIKI equipped) Flight en route from Maryland to Florida

Ms. Nina was the junior co-pilot on a FIKI-equipped SR22 flight en route from Maryland to Florida on February 12, 2021. About 30 minutes into the flight, the aircraft started accreting ice on the wing that wouldn’t shed. She and her pilot discussed the possible consequences and decided to return to Maryland and land rather than continue the mission. All three persons and the SR22 made it on the ground safely.
