Response text:

In May 2004, CASA advised the Bureau that it agreed with the recommendation and undertook to run an appropriate article with reference to the United States of America Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular AC 20-113 in Flight Safety
Australia (FSA).

I am advised that articles relating to carburetor icing have been featured in previous editions of FSA; in particular, January/February 2000 and July/August 2001. However, CASA also published an article in the November/December 2004 edition in relation to carburetor icing in Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations. While this article does not specifically refer to AC 20-113, it does cover the same material contained in the AC. A copy of the article is attached for
your information.

In addition, it should be noted that CASA also runs a series of seminars relating to aircraft icing. That seminar addresses the hazards of various forms of icing and recognition of icing conditions with particular emphasis on carburetor icing.
