The Jerry clown show.

Look at the amount of positive comments, the ignorant student pilot and weekend warrior public, just love him...
That's easily the worst part of his videos. If he wants to go up and make a fool of himself, well fine I guess. But this legion of followers that think he's the bees knees (don't listen to the haters Jerry!) is truly disturbing

We've gone back and forth about did he violate a reg, didn't he, can you prove it. But here, he reports icing conditions to ATC, is given the option to get out of it and elects to stay where he is in a non-FIKI approved aircraft. Cut and dry, black and white violation of FAR 91.9
In fairness, just about every twin Cessna pilot ignores that reg. Most of us don’t report it to ATC, though. :)

Or videotape it, put it on the Internet in front of an audience of mostly low time pilots flying singles that now think that maybe ice ain't so bad...
Yeah, bad juju. But really, ice is usually a non-event in a large twin Cessna. Or so I hear. ;) Teaching guys flying airplanes not equipped with anti-ice and de-ice equipment to not worry about it, though? Not cool.

Oh I've been there in 310s, and naturally not the one in our fleet that had full fiki and boots. I still changed altitudes when I picked it up because I am a chicken.
Still irresponsible, but narcissists like the views and clicks so he'll continue to post them up.

He can afford a 414, but can't afford boots, prop and windshield heat?

he waxed the leading edges in an attempt to keep the ice from sticking.

Thats a realm of stupidity I have yet to encounter in real life
There's actually a product called IceX which works very well. It's for FIKI aircraft, specifically booted ones that, lets bet honest sometimes don't work all that awesome.

and god knows how much for that new panel with synthetic vision and he still can’t break out of an approach not in an unusual attitude?

414s are usually equipped with all the de-ice goodies, but still not certified FIKI. That’s why most don’t care.

Sounds like fancy boot polish to me. 357 bucks a quart every 50 flight hours sounds a little spendy for Jer, it's probably Turtle wax

It’s a silicone base.

It’s probably the same stuff they sell at NAPA to keep your car door seals from freezing shut.

But it does work, just make sure you follow the directions and apply LIGHTLY. We had a caravan pilot come back one time and say that his engine was leaking a massive amount of oil all over the wings.


Turned out the guy that put ICEX on was a little....over enthusiastic....and it was running back off the boots.
