Icing charts are vitally important to any pilot, they give information about freezing points at different altitudes dependent upon whether and moisture conditions at any point in time. Usually used more by the more experienced pilot who flies at higher altitudes they can be a life saver especially on smaller aircraft.
Larger aircraft have a vast array of precautions to combat ice at high altitudes as the dangers are immense if the conditions are not combatted. Generally larger aircraft will have heating wings to stop ice forming, but lighter aircrafts have air pockets designed to burst if ice forms around its surface.
