Read this story in our October 2015 printed issue.

AgustaWestland's limited ice protection system (LIPS) for the AW189 has been certified by EASA.

The LIPS system will allow the AW189 to further enhance its all-weather capabilities and to fly in extreme environments. The AW189 is the first helicopter in its category to receive an ice protection system certification.

The LIPS permits flight within a known and defined envelope of icing conditions provided that the capability to descend into a known band of positive temperature is available throughout the intended route. Such conditions are typically found over the North Sea.
