FUELLING

MEMORY-JOGGER #6 

FUELLING

·         Always supervise the refuelling of your aircraft because you are responsible for    what and how much goes into the tanks. JET-A1 and AVGAS mistakes are easily  made, and diesel-engine types are becoming ever more popular
·         Ensure that earth wires are attached before delivery begins and that the nozzle  is earthed. Make sure a fire extinguisher is available
·          After refuelling, personally check all filler caps and access panels for security
·          Make sure hoses and earth wires are wound back clear after use
·   When you sign or pay for the fuel, double-check the invoice for the correct  type/grade of fuel and quantity. (JET-A1 in a piston-engine aircraft has been  discovered at this stage)


FLY SAFE!
