Boarding and Refuelling at the same time


Recommended Posts

Hi

In the next update are you able to have the refuelling take place using the right wing (where refuelling happens on short haul aircraft anyway) also is it possible to de-board and board passengers at the same time as the refuelling (real world operation) please.

Many thanks

Mike

On the refuelling, it all depends on where the fuel receptacle is located. I know for a fact on your commercial aircraft, they use single point fueling meaning that the fuel truck pulls up to where there is a underground hookup, hooks up to that, then the fuel is transferred through the truck, pumps are turned on in the wing or cockpit or both and the fuel is transferred until the amount needed is in the tanks. As far as fuelling while boarding, unless the fuelers are running behind, the refuelling process is usually done before the boarding process even takes place.

Simultaneous refueling and boarding is an airline or airport policy issue. There are no locations that are ICAO signatories where it is prohibited by regulation. The only thing that is restricted by regulation is fueling with an engine operating and starting/stopping the APU while fueling.
