New CAA Safety Sense Leaflet- FUEL


This safety sense leaflet has been issued by the CAA this month (April 2013)
http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/33/20130409SSL28.pdf

In relation to fire on the ground note a/c brakes left OFF while refueling, wheels can be chocked.

Before night flying or over water flying in a single engine aircraft I recommend you wait at least 30 minutes after refueling and then take a fuel sample from all of the drains.

Consider the use of safety glasses and disposable gloves when refuelling.

Are you sure you have the correct fuel? Avgas is dyed light blue and has a unique smell!
