IFR pilots need to pay attention to certain fronts because of ice tendencies and building thunderstorms. Knowledge of Icing is important to even the VFR pilot because he or she may encounter this in flying. A pilot does not intend to fly into icing conditions but it is to the pilot’s advantage to know what to do in an icing situation.
