Who can operate fueling equipment on the aircraft?
Fueling equipment shall be operated only by qualified and authorized personnel.
How far should the helicopter be parked from other aircraft when conducting fueling operations?
50 feet minimum.
How far should the helicopter be parked from operating radars when conducting fueling operations?
75 feet minimum.
Is power necessary for refueling?
Electrical power is necessary to obtain fuel quantity readings.
What are the restrictions when using JP-4/Jet B fuel?
1. Single-engine training prohibited.

2. Operating Characteristics may change. Lower operating temps, slower acceleration, and shorter range may be experienced.

3. Due to vapor qualities of mixed JP-4/Jet B, next two refuelings with a primary fuel shall be treated as if JP-4/Jet B is in the tanks.
Warning: For all fuel types, the fuel boost pumps shall be turned on prior to takeoff following any nose-down ground operations exceeding ____ ____ in duration. Boost pumps may be turned off ___ ___ after establishing/maintaining a nose up attitude.
10 minutes;
10 seconds
Warning (cont): Sustained nose-down flight operations, particularly during low fuel-flow (min power) conditions, can result in low fuel pressure cautions upon performing a nose-up maneuver. This situation can be avoided by turning boost pumps on prior to the maneuver. Pumps may be turned off ___ ___ after establishing/maintaining a nose-up attitude.
30 seconds
When using compatible fuels other than JP-5/JP-8, _____________.
Both main tank boost pumps shall be turned on.
The risk of a post-crash fire/fuel leakage is (increased?/decreased?) if main tank boost pumps are off?
Decreased if main tank boost pumps are off.
If neither precheck valve will secure fuel flow, fueling should be continued ___ __ ____.
Only if necessary.
If neither precheck valve will secure fuel flow, fueling should be continued ___ __ ____.
Only if necessary.
If neither precheck valve will secure fuel flow and fueling is required, how should you proceed?
1. Proceed with caution to prevent rupture of the fuel tanks.
2. One pilot shall monitor fuel quantity on the flight or mission display.
Gravity fuel is/is not authorized with engines or APU operating.
Gravity fuel is not authorized with engines or APU operating.
What is a PRIMARY FUEL?
A fuel which the aircraft was designed to use for continuous unrestricted operations.
What is an ALTERNATE FUEL?
A fuel which the aircraft can be flown without operational restrictions, but which may have a long-term durability or maintainability impact if used for continuous operations.
What is a RESTRICTED FUEL?
A fuel which imposes operational restrictions on the aircraft when used. These fuels may be used only if no primary or alternate military or commercial fuel is available.
What are the primary fuels?
JP-5 or JP-8
What are the alternate fuels?
Jet A or Jet A-1.

Also JP-5 or JP-8 when these have additives.
What are the restricted fuels?
JP-4 or Jet B.
When the oil level reaches the ADD mark, how much oil is required?
Approximately 2 quarts.
How long do you need to wait after shutting down the engines to check the engine oil?
At least 20 minutes.
What is the maximum towing speed?
5 mph.
How are the searchlight and landing light configured for towing?
Ensure the searchlight and landing light are in the STOWED position prior to towing to preclude damage.
