The icing environment relates to all aircraft structures and systems, and to all types of aircraft: general aviation, transport aircraft, and rotorcraft.

The flight environmental icing discipline addresses all phases of ice protection for aircraft, including concerns related to: plane de-icing while still on the ground; ice-contaminated tail causing plane stall; large super-cooled droplets (freezing rain and drizzle); and, ice accretion in the inlets and on internal stationary and rotating components of turbine engines.
