    How about telling us (me.... ignorant) what that means? Sounds impressive

    Remove winter substances off the a/c

    It is about checking the removal of slush, ice etc from the a/c in order to create safe flight conditions.
    You can be either at the gate or at a remote location. There are trucks (drivers and gunners) who treat the a/c with de/anti-ice fluids and the controller must oversee the process and has the end responsibility for proper treatment. You have contact with the cockpit etc. You also keep an eye on changing weather conditions as this will impact the effectiveness of the treatment.

    As I am still in training there is not much to tell yet. If I pass exams, I'll do this for one winter season and then evaluate whether I want to continue.

    It is on a standby basis, next to your regular job.

    Passed theoratical exam

    Today I passed my theoretical exam with 97% score.
    I missed one question out of 30, hence the 3 % loss should have seen that one coming.
    Anyway, next step is a two day practical training on the ramp.

    Passed the practical test and have the certificate.
    Tuesday morning I'll have to be on the ramp at 0600 to start the actual de-icing as the temp is going below +3 C
    With cold fuel in the tanks and a fog, we need to de-ice some a/c

    We have a lot of snow. When men wash their hair too hot, much snow on the shoulders. Or snow which you snort through a straw up your nose.

    But all jokes aside, we have a foggy country (high humidity) and when the a/c has cold fuel in the tanks it will freeze the fog into clear ice (the most dangerous) Snow you can see, for clear ice we need to do a tactile check. I once even had to treat a F100 where the condens ran over the front of the wing, to the underside of the wing and froze into long ridges of ice. And it was 13.30 hrs local time, weak sun, OAT 6 celcius.

    It's a cool job indeed!
