Training includes:

  • The theoretical background behind the risk of fuel tank safety: the explosions of mixtures of fuel and air, the behaviour of those mixtures in an aviation environment, the effects of temperature and pressure, energy needed for ignition etc, the ‘fire triangle’. 2 concepts to prevent explosions:
  • ignition source prevention and;
  • flammability reduction.
  • A short background showing examples of FTS accidents or incidents;
  • The description of concept of fuel tank safety and CDCCL;

  • Some examples of TC holders repair data;
  • Some examples of maintenance instructions for inspection.


Upon completion of the course, the participant should:

  • Have knowledge of the history of events related to fuel tank safety issues and the theoretical and practical elements of the subject, have an overview of the FAA regulations known as SFAR (Special FAR) 88 of the FAA and of JAA Temporary Guidance Leaflet  TGL 47, be able to give a detailed description of the concept of fuel tank system ALI (including Critical Design);
  • Configuration Control Limitations CDCCL, and using theoretical fundamentals and specific examples;
  • Have the capacity to combine and apply the separate elements of knowledge in a logical and comprehensive manner;
  • Have knowledge on how the above items affect the  aircraft;
  • Be able to identify the components or parts or the  aircraft subject to FTS from the manufacturer’s documentation.
