Ice accretion on aircraft surface often causes serious hazards that would directly affect flight safety, and the flight performance and fuel efficiency will also be significantly influenced. Various ice protection strategies have been applied in the past decades. The current passive ice protection mainly refers to the use of icephobic coatings or surface to delay and minimize the formation of ice, and lower the ice adhesion strength to facilitate the removal of ice naturally. Some recent development of icephobic coatings and surface will be presented.
