Flights to gather data on turbine-engine core icing at higher altitudes is to be conducted under a $7.4-million NASA contract awarded to Mojave, Calif.-based Flight Test Associates. The “high ice water content” flight campaign is prompted by power-loss events caused by engine core icing in convective weather above the altitudes normally associated with icing conditions. Core icing is caused by high concentrations of ice crystals lifted to higher altitudes by strong thunderstorm ...
