Why this Recommendation was Developed: link_64Synoptic Report E01/2017
Addressee: Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA)
Status: CLOSED - Adequate
Recommendation: PREAMBLE: During the investigation process it was revealed that the fuel handling inside the airport (LGMG) sometimes is performed by non-certifying fuel carriers using non approved fuel containers. At the same time these containers are stored at non appropriate storage facilities inside the airport. The risk of using non appropriate fuel at aircrafts as well as the risk of explosion is high. In addition to the above the refueling of aircrafts sometimes are performed by gravity and not using the proper equipment (pipe and nozzle properly bonded) as a result the risk of explosion due to the accumulation of static electricity is high.
SAFETY RECOMMENDATION 2017-02: The HCAA to inform all the relevant parties, organizations and general aviation aircraft owners for the requirements of the aircraft refueling regulation and its proper implementation.
