Wing anti ice

Why are slats 1 & 8 not heated by the wing anti ice system?

I would imagine it's just because icing in this area would not cause any significant problems to flight.

That's what I've been told on the course. Ice build up on slats 1 and 8 has no significant effect on flight performance.
This job sucks!!! I love this job!!!

Hey

Slat 1 and 8 is propally not heated eather to just preserve bleed air or because some temperature sensitive components are taken from CL. So not to fry them off with a increased bleed demand? Boeing conpensated by programming a iceing logic in the SMYD.
If you get a lot of ice on the LE the A/C just becomes a little sloppy in roll due slats and pitch...since the is no anti ice on the stabilizer...
If you perform T/G in iceing conditions nosewheel stearing might also raise a problem...

wing anti ice on slat #1 and no #8 not required as there is no ice formation there due to flexing during flight loads. notice the amount of flexing that occurs during flight by sitting near overwing exit sometime

Biswajit - that is incorrect. I can tell you from personal experience that ice forms, and remains, on the wing equally across its span. The photograph at http://www.b737.org.uk/iceandrain.htm#Wing_Anti_Ice shows the remaining ice after wing anti-ice has been used.

I was told by a Boeing TP that the reason was excessive bleed requirements, but Boeing would obviously never put that sort of negative comment in print.

I beleive that the MMA will have wing A/I along all slats because it may be operating in icing conditions for extended periods.

if bleed is the reason then we have thrust conservation protection by the A/G logic and and the microswitches in the control stand that switches the WTAI off during T/O when the thrust lever is advanced.
