EASA has proposed revising the certification rules for ice crystals, but AAIB notes that the new rules would not cover the conditions likely experienced during at least one of the incidents.

Airbus, which has its own internal ice crystal testing requirements, says it is developing expanded envelopes that will be included in updated EASA requirements. “Airbus considers that the current EASA and Airbus requirements need to be improved to better address pitot probe icing,” says the AAIB.
