Yes. All CAVU or no weather concerns.Can one get carb ice when CAVU and OAT is 10 degrees Far. ?
At that temp air contains very little moisture, further chilling should not produce ice. Any thoughts?
I have had ice at very cold temps. Not sure of actual temps as it was long ago. Likely. Zero to 20 degrees in a Cessna 172. Carb heat was applied but took forever to have an effect.
Also had ice on an ultralight at warm shirt sleeve temperatures probably mid 70s. Ended up in the river and was not cold.
Engine quit on a J 3 with carb heat on and OAT probably between 25 and 35 degrees F.
