Hi,

 

I performed an unrestricted climb last night, and was unable to see out the canopy passing about 20000 ft. I used defog, but it took about 5 minutes to clear enough to see while at 45000 ft.

 

Is there any way to prevent fogging before it happens?

The JF-17 is not better than the F-16; it's different. It's how you fly that counts.

You can change your cabin temp gradually and adjust it. That way you can prevent fog, at least for certain altitudes

There’s a ‘defog’ button on the ECS panel, right hand side of the cockpit. Press that =)

 

The defogger is loud, but it’s automatic. Simply press the button, the canopy will defog and eventually the defogger will shut off. I use the defogger around 12k on my initial climb to prevent the problem from developing. I’ve found that if I wait until the canopy starts to visibly fog the canopy winds up fogging over before the system starts to work.

Yes, I used that.

 

I guess I'm not using it soon enough!
