  • Operator’s responsibility: A) The procedure is conveyed to the fuel vendor and organisation’s rep.

    B) Ensure that the fuel meets the specification

    C) Ensure fuel is free from contaminants

    D) Observing safety measures

  • Precautions contd.

    E) APU with its exhaust discharge into the fuelling zone shall be started before filler cap is removed or fuelling connection made

    F) GPU if used should be more than 6 mts away from fuelling zone

    G) Do not refuel if brakes are very hot.

  • Precautions contd.

    F) Fuelling should cease when

    I) An aircraft maneuvers to bring its jet exhaust within 43 Meters of fueling zone

    II) During severe lightening disturbances

    III) During heavy rain if over wing fuelling is used

    IV) In case of fuel spillage.

Precautions contd.

Do not operate any electrical switches when the fuelling is on.

Do not operate weather radar

Do not use any tool which can generate spark

Use special care when refueling with passenger on board

  • Training of personnel

    Personnel both at the vendor’s establishment and operator’s must be fully conversant with requirements of the aircraft, Safety precautions, Fire fighting, how to summon Airport Fire tenders,disposal of spilled fuel etc.

    This training should be documented and refreshed at agreed regular interval.

Beware of fuel l.jpg

Various roles of fuel in Aviation:

I) Fuel as a source of Thermal energy

II) Fuel as a source of Muscle power

III) Fuel as a coolant

IV) Fuel as a lubricant

V) Fuel as structural strength

VI) Fuel as a ballast AND

VII) Fuel as a Fire hazard.
