Fuel Tank Safety

Fuel tank safety training course is intended for maintenance personnel. It can be provided as a purely classroom course or as a combination of classroom training and e-learning. The course has been devised to meet the relevant requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and other authorities.

The course is offered as awareness (Phase 1) or detailed training (Phase 2). Its content follows the requirements of EASA’s Appendix IV to AMC 145.A.30(e) and 145.B.10(3)

The awareness training (Phase 1) is designed for maintenance management, quality management and quality assurance personnel. Participants here will be familiarized with the basic terms and elements of fuel tank safety, including the requisite documentation of the historical background and all safety-related issues.

The detailed training (Phase 2) is intended for personnel involved in managing and reviewing the continuing airworthiness of aircraft and for personnel who are required to plan, supervise, inspect and certify the maintenance of aircraft and fuel system components. This training, which also includes all the topics of Phase 1, puts a particular emphasis on the technical aspects, but also deals with all the further topics prescribed. The Phase 2 course also includes an examination at the end, in accordance with EASA guidelines.

There is also a further option of a two-to-three-hour Refresher Recurrent course.

  • Fuel tank safety concerns in the wake of the loss of TWA flight TW 800 in July 1996.
  • Background information (theoretical background, Special Federation Aviation Regulations [SFAR 88], Joint Aviation Authorities Temporary Guidance Leaflet [JAA TGL 47], the behavior and explosively of fuel-and-air mixtures, types of jet fuel, major accidents).
  • Promoting awareness (inspection work, critical design configuration control limitations [CDCCLs], bonding schemes, fuel tank safety in maintenance, and awareness of hazards, reducing flammability).
  • Enhancing the maintenance organization.
Phase 1:
After completing the phase 1 course the trainee will:
  • be familiar with the basic elements of fuel tank safety
  • be able to give a simple description of the historical background and the safety issues here using common words and giving examples of non-conformities with the relevant safety precautions
  • be able to use typical terminology.
Phase 2:
In addition to the phase 1 goals, the trainee will, after completing the course:
  • have a knowledge of the events relating to fuel tank safety issues
  • be able to give a detailed description of the concept of fuel tank limitations (including CDCCLs) using theoretical fundamentals and specific examples
  • be able to combine and apply the knowledge acquired in a logical and comprehensive manner
  • be familiar with how the above items can affect the aircraft’s systems
  • be able to identify the components or parts
  • be able to follow or apply a service bulletin or an airworthiness directive.
