The article discusses the automatic control system of the Diamond DA42 aircraft anti-icing system. The project was created in MATLAB environment equipped with the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox package. The discussion revolves around the problem of preventing icing. In the analysis four parameters were taken into account: air temperature, cloud water content, temperature of the aircraft and precipitation. On the basis of the initial parameters, ice intensity likely to occur on the air-craft was determined. By automating the activities related to the programming of the anti-icing system, it is possible to significantly relieve the pilot and increase the safety of air operations, particularly in conditions which are conducive to the formation of icing. Currently, the Diamond DA42 aircraft is not authorized to fly into known icing conditions. The use of a fuzzy expert system to control the anti-icing system would greatly increase the scope of operations of the Diamond DA42 aircraft.
