Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||23 October 2002|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority review the provisions for planning a fixed fuel reserve and determine if this fuel should be contained in the fuel tanks that are to be used during the approach and landing.
|Date issued:||13 December 2002|
|Response from:||Civil Aviation Safety Authority|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
CASA does not agree with this Recommendation as it considers
that there is sufficient guidance on fuel management currently
available. A rule, stipulating in which tank fuel should be
located, would be overly prescriptive.
