During the climb out from Aberdeen Airport ice was seen forming on the wings and due to these icing conditions, the aircrafts climb rate to 13,000 ft. slowly dropped off and once at the cruise level a lower acceleration than expected was experienced, so a descent was initiated under autopilot. An unusual vibration with the stall warning was experienced that disconnected the autopilot, manual recovery was carried out and the autopilot re-engaged. A normal landing was carried out at Sumburgh Airport.
