SureConsult is a leading expert in the areas of programs, standard operating procedures, quality assurance and training for all things aircraft deicing and carrier winter operations.

On May 23, 2017, SureConsult launched the SureOps Aircraft Deicing Training Website at the SAE G-12 Deicing Training Subcommittee meeting in Athens. The new site, www.sureops.com, is intended to serve as a resource centre for the aircraft deicing and winter operations’ industries, primarily for training and quality purposes.
The annual Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) G-12 Aircraft Ground Deicing Conference took place from May 18-25, 2017 in Athens, Greece, and the Sure brand was well represented. The SAE G-12 conference is the largest annual gathering of global technical experts and decision-makers in the field of aircraft ground deicing and winter operations.
At most global airports, each deicing service provider or air carrier performing self-deicing activities maintains its own fluid storage. This results in an abundance of drums, totes and tanks scattered over various locations around the airport, often with little or no environmental control systems in place. We’ve all seen it before many times.
In July 2016, the Association of European Airlines (AEA) released the final editions of the AEA Recommendations for De-Icing/Anti-Icing of Aeroplanes on the Ground and the AEA Training Recommendations and Background Information for De-Icing /Anti-Icing of Aeroplane on the Ground. The documents have formed the basis of all European air carrier and de-icing service provider programs since their inception.
The Regina Airport Authority has contracted SureConsult to assist in the development of options for the potential future implementation of a consolidated de/anti-icing fluid storage facility at Regina Airport, as well as options for the overall management of the de/anti-icing fluid supply subsequent to the development of any fluid storage facility. SureConsult is thrilled to have been selected to undertake this important mandate aimed at enhancing the operational and environmental performance of future activities at the airport.
SureWx, SureConsult and JBA Aviation hosted a Deicing Seminar in Helsinki, Finland on January 18, 2017 that was attended by industry experts from Europe and North America. The objective of the seminar was to provide attendees with a forum to learn about and discuss new industry developments and directions related to deicing, winter operations and holdover times, as well as to network with colleagues from around the world.
Chartright Air Group, one of the leading private aviation services companies in Canada, has been added to the growing list of air operators and deicing service providers to select SureConsult to assist in training deicing personnel.
To all of our dear clients, friends, colleagues and online followers, SureConsult conveys best wishes for the holidays: the warmth of home, the love of family and the company of good friends.
Kudos to everyone at British Airways for paying tribute to Billi Vestergaard by putting his name on one of the company’s Vestergaard Beta deicing vehicles at London Heathrow. The company also invited other companies around the world to do the same.
