or potential contaminating causes are identified, unfavorable field test results are corroborated, and off-
specification fuels are not used.
PART D -
Communication is the single non-equipment-related item which can enable the FARE site to be a major factor
in the successful mission. This communication is multi-level. Unless otherwise directed, you are responsible
for informing the chain of command of the following:
When the site becomes operational.
When the site is shut down for any reason before the scheduled shutdown time.
Report status of operations and any problems encountered as required by unit policy and procedures.
When the site is shut down as indicated in the operations orders.
PART E - SUPERVISING THE OPERATION OF THE FARE
The FARE system should be primed and ready for operation as soon as it is
laid out and the fuel has been sampled. There should be at least three
people in addition to the ATC or pathfinder present during refueling
operations. At least two of these people should hold MOS 77F. The
proper procedure for refueling an aircraft are as follows:
Land aircraft. Check to see that the armaments aboard the aircraft
have been set to SAFE.
Deplane crew and passengers. Only the pilot may remain in the
aircraft during refueling. If required, a crew member may assist with
the refueling by manning the fire extinguisher.
Position fire extinguisher on the side of the aircraft by the fill
Turn off radios. The pilot may monitor the radio used for air traffic
control but must not transmit while actual refueling is taking place.
The pilot and crew chief may talk by intercom during refueling.
Ground and bound the nozzle to the aircraft. It should never be
attached to the radio antenna or to a propeller.
Remove dust cap from the nozzle and remove the plug from the aircraft
Begin refueling. Be certain to observe the safety precautions
associated with closed-circuit or open-port refueling, as the case may
Replace aircraft fill port plug, and replace nozzle caps/plugs.
Remove nozzle bond. Carry the nozzle back to its hanger.
Remove fire extinguisher.
Board crew and passengers.
Direct aircraft to lift-off.
Additionally, you are required to monitor fuel stocks and accountability
procedures and render status reports as required by unit policy. If any
leaks or hazardous conditions are found the system must be shut down and
the problem corrected before resuming operations. All spills must be
cleaned up and reported as required by unit policies and procedures and
applicable environmental laws. Dispose of contaminated fuel and
materials in an environmentally safe way in accordance with unit policies
and procedures and applicable environmental laws. You must also ensure
that during and after PMCS are done and that DA Form 2404 or DA Form
