Thanks DC10guy, but up to what altitude is it needed? At what point are you too high for ice to build up?

Used at all altitudes where required. Where required depends upon aircraft type and airline operating specifications. For example, AA MD90 Operating manual requires use of airfoil anti-ice "...when icing conditions exist or are anticipated." AA B757 Operating manual lists a minimum temperature below which anti-ice is not required (I think it's -43C, but don't quote me on that -- I've been trying to forget B757 limits for a year).

There is an old saying "ice is where you find it".
