deicing boot

Es un elemento que se utiliza para quebrar el hielo que se produce en los bordes de ataque del plano (ala) y que pueden ser causantes de muchos accidentes pues el perfil aerodinamico se altera y la aeronave puede irse a tierra por pérdida de sustentación.
Son unas superficies negras que parecen neumáticos y al calentarse rompen el hielo.

A deicing boot is a device installed on aircraft surfaces to permit a mechanical deicing in flight. Such boots are generally installed on the leading edges of wings and control surfaces (e.g. horizontal and vertical stabilizer) as these areas are most likely to accumulate ice and any contamination could severely affect the aircraft's performance. A deicing boot consists of a thick rubber membrane that is installed over the surface. As atmospheric icing occurs and ice builds up, a pneumatic system inflates the boot with compressed air. This expansion in size cracks any ice that has accumulated, and this ice is then blown away by the airflow. The boots are then deflated to return the wing or surface to its optimal shape.

Algunas de estas botas trabajan con aire sangrado del compresor (bleed air) que a traves de un sistema de flautas " "piccolo tube" dirigen aire a altísima temperatura para quebrar el hielo. No tengo duda sobre la respuesta.
