The reasons why ice formation may hinder low and slow flights are presented. A crude measure of the potential of icing near the ground is presented and it is shown that, by this measure, icing may be a serious problem for flights over the higher terrain of central Europe. Some suggestions for improving the measure of icing potential are given.
