Weather Conditions Associated with Jet Engine Power Loss and Damage due to Ingestion of Ice Particles

The aviation industry has now connected a number of jet engine power-loss and damage events to the ingestion of ice particles. Ice particle icing related jet engine power-loss and damage events are occurring during flights of large transport aircraft, commuter, and business jets. These events have only recently been recognized as occurring in regions of ice particles aloft within convective clouds. The events have included engine surge, stall, flameout and rollback, as well as engine compressor damage due to ice shedding. All have been shown to have occurred during flight near convective weather mostly at high altitude.
