This index is provided by airport operators whenever there is ice, frost, snow or winter contaminants on the runway that may affect an aircraft's braking ability.

OBS

Pour calculer les distances d'atterrissage sur des pistes chargées de divers contaminants associées à des conditions hivernales, les pilotes utilisent un guide connu sous le nom de Coefficient canadien de frottement sur piste (CRFI). Les exploitants des aéroports communiquent ce coefficient dès que la présence de glace, de givre, de neige ou d'autres contaminants hivernaux risque de diminuer les performances en freinage d'un avion.
