Before we lose the winter entirely, I have a question for all current Cirrus operators in parts of the country below freezing.
What has been your icing experience this winter? Rumors abound that the SR20 does not hold any ice at all without significant changes in flight dynamics. What is the experience of the actual users? Other than a change in airspeed, has the plane been able to carry some ice without problems?
If so, how much? Most of the Cessnas I have flown over the years carry mild amounts of ice well with little change in airspeed or control problems. How does the Cirrus differ, if at all?
