Default SLC Deicing: Type I and Type 4 always

To the guys that have been there awhile why does SLC give type IV after Type I when its a clear day and not a cloud in the sky...

There was a memo just out about that... They have some special approval to allow a greatly reduced concentration of type 1 but to do that they must use type 4 also. Makes me wonder if they really save any money doing it that way.

Logic I'm trying to see where Akro said anything about having frost after deicing with type I....just that you might have to deice on a clear day....

DAL does that for some reason. I think SKW will still give us T-I only.

But SLC does have a potential severe active frost problem from the lake moisture. It can switch on and off with no notice.

The memo I saw listed SLC and CVG as the 2 stations that have the diluted type 1 approval thing that we (Mesaba) could have to deal with.
