What is de-icing and how does/could it impact my trip cost?

When ice or snow accumulates on a plane due to inclement weather, it can impact the ability to take off safely or affect the accuracy of sensitive instruments located in the nose of the plane. We always put safety first and strictly adhere to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations. De-icing involves a solution that removes ice from the aircraft, and it does take time, usually less than 30 minutes. Inclement weather is out of all of our control. If your Omni Air Transport pilots determine your aircraft requires de-icing, it could cause a delay in your trip. The cost of de-icing a private jet is billed to the client after the trip, at cost.
