Eurocopter Canada (ECL) has launched the first phase of its new online technical publications service, giving customers access to the company’s latest aircraft publications.

The first phase–being rolled out now–posts Eurocopter’s latest technical documents in pdf format on the ECL Keycopter portal. Customers will be able to consult this online library for reference and download and print the desired manuals (or individual documents) for offline use.

A team of Harvard University researchers has devised a product that prevents ice and frost from forming on metal surfaces such as the leading edge of an aircraft wing.

Surfaces treated with the non-toxic, non-corrosive Slips (for slippery liquid infused porous surfaces) become ultra smooth, slippery surfaces to which fluids and solids alike, such as condensation, frost and even ice, will not adhere.

The Slips technology–tested so far on refrigerator fans–has also been proven to work effectively under high-humidity and high-pressure conditions.
