I am new to your forum so would like to introduce myself. My name is Kevin and I live in Northern British Columbia. I am a recreational private pilot who owns and flies a C170-B.
I have a question regarding removing frost from wings. I currently tie down outside and do not have access to a hangar. I have noticed that when I remove my wing covers, I still have a fair bit of frost on my wings. I would like to ask the group here what each of you do to remove frost from your flying surfaces.
I currently preheat using a Red Dragon heater. I was thinking that an easy way to defrost the wings might be to open up some inspection plates and direct some the the hot air up into the wings? I am wondering if this would work and what some of the negative sides of doing this might be?
All opinions welcome
