Ice accretions degrades the performance and controllability of the aircraft. The ice tolerant control system has been designed and implemented to identify degradations in flying qualities resulting from ice contamination. This paper details a 3-DOF gimbaled mechanism to support an actively controlled transport aircraft model with simulated ice shape for wind tunnel virtual flight test.
