Flashcards in Fuel Policy (FAM CH. 16) Deck (34):
1

What is the calculated/planned taxi fuel for QF B737-800?

100kg

2

What is the calculated/planned taxi fuel for QF A330?

400kg

3

What is the 'Flight Fuel' and how is it calculated?

It is the fuel needed from the commencement of take-off to a point 1,500' at the destination.

4

What is the Set Heading Allowance?

It is a time and fuel allowance that will be included in the Flight Fuel when flying from specific airports that are known to have lengthy departure procedures. The amount varies and will be advised on planners notes.

5

What is the arrival allowance?

It is additional fuel allowance to the Flight Fuel when flying to specific airports that have lengthy arrival procedures. The amount varies and will be advised on planners notes.

6

What are the AV3 preflight requirements when an onward airport is not available for DPD?

The flight may depart but not proceed beyond the DPD unless an ACCEPTABLE Airport is available and sufficient fuel is carried on board to proceed to that airport depressurised and land with FFR. In-flight, if the onward airport is INTER/TEMPO below landing minima, fuel must also be available to hold for the applicable period. The required holding fuel is to be calculated at 10,000' or lower.

7

What are the AV4 preflight requirements when an onward airport is not available for DP1?

The flight may depart but not proceed beyond the DP1 unless a SUITABLE Airport is available and sufficient fuel is on board to proceed to that airport with one engine inoperative and land with FFR.

8

What are the AV5 preflight requirements when an onward airport from CPE is not available for CPE?

The flight may depart but not proceed beyond CPE, unless a required USEABLE ADEQUATE Airport is available and sufficient fuel is onboard to proceed to that airport while complying with the most limiting Critical Fuel Scenario and ETOPS Fuel Reserves.

9

What is 'Additional Fuel'?

Any fuel 'below the line' (i.e. not legally required) such as:
• ETOPS icing requirements;
• CDL/MEL requirements;
• Tankering;
• Satisfying CAV requirements;
• Building up fuel to minimum Fuel Over Destination or Fuel Uplift
• OPRISK

10

What is Approach Fuel?

The amount of fuel to allow for manoeuvring from 1,500'.

11

What is the approach fuel for the B737-800?

300kg

12

What is the approach fuel for the A330?

500kg.

13

What is the approach fuel for the A380?

1,000kg.

14

What is the approach fuel for the 767?

1,000kg.

15

What is the approach fuel for the B747?

2,000kg.

16

What is Trip Fuel?

Trip Fuel is Flight Fuel + Approach Fuel. Also referred to as 'Burn'.

17

What is Ballast?

Ballast is uplifted for weight and balance trim purposes. It is not included in take-off fuel and cannot be be used or included in reserves.

18

What is Contingency Fuel?

It is Additional Fuel (when necessary) to meet engine failure, depressurisation, ETOPS, or DPA diversion requirements.

19

What is Diversion Fuel?

For Boeing:
Fuel required from 1,500' to 200' at destination followed by a go-around and flight to 1,500' at Alternate.

For Airbus:
Fuel at missed approach at destination until landing at alternate.

20

What is Fixed Fuel Reserve and how is it calculated?

Fixed Fuel Reserve is calculated as 30min of holding fuel at 1,500'. It is the minimum fuel required to be in the tanks at the completion of the landing roll.

21

What is the approach fuel for the A330?

500kg.

22

What is the approach fuel for the A380?

1,000kg.

23

What is the approach fuel for the 767?

1,000kg.

24

What is the approach fuel for the B747?

2,000kg.

25

What is Trip Fuel?

Trip Fuel is Flight Fuel + Approach Fuel. Also referred to as 'Burn'.

26

What is Ballast?

Ballast is uplifted for weight and balance trim purposes. It is not included in take-off fuel and cannot be be used or included in reserves.

27

What is Contingency Fuel?

It is Additional Fuel (when necessary) to meet engine failure, depressurisation, ETOPS, or DPA diversion requirements.

28

What is Diversion Fuel?

For Boeing:
Fuel required from 1,500' to 200' at destination followed by a go-around and flight to 1,500' at Alternate.

For Airbus:
Fuel at missed approach at destination until landing at alternate.

29

What is Fixed Fuel Reserve and how is it calculated?

Fixed Fuel Reserve is calculated as 30min of holding fuel at 1,500'. It is the minimum fuel required to be in the tanks at the completion of the la ding roll.

30

What is the Flight Fuel?

Fuel required, as shown on the plan, at take-off to 1,500 at destination.

31

What is the Fuel Over Destination?

Quantity of fuel planned to be remaining at 1,500' at destination. It equals preflight fuel minus taxi and flight fuel.

32

What is Endurance Over Destination?

EOD is planned to be remaining at 1,500' at destination airport. It is equivalent to Fuel Over Destination at holding fuel rate at 1,500'. Unles payload limited, EOD will not be less than 75min and 2,700kg (B737).

33

Fuel Uplift for Normal Operations:

• RPT and cargo flights;
• Positioning flights;
• Revenue RPT flights including route training or checking;
• Charter flights.
Does not include:
• Experimental/test flights, post-maintenance flights;
• Flights carried out under special permits where no specific dispensation applies.

34

What is Reserve Fuel?

It is all fuel at departure in excess of the total of:
• Taxi Fuel;
• Flight Fuel;
• Approach Fuel;
• Ballast Fuel.
