Removal of Regulations Allowing for Polished Frost
Document Number: E9-28431
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is removing certain provisions in its regulations that allow for operations with ``polished frost'' (i.e., frost polished to make it smooth) on the wings and stabilizing and control surfaces of aircraft. The rule is expected to increase safety by not allowing operations with ``polished frost,'' which the FAA has determined increases the risk of unsafe flight.
