2 hours, to allow contaminants to settle (water, biological, dirt)
Approx. how much fuel is taken from each fuel cell for sampling?
1 pint.
Who can inspect fuel samples?
310 CDI, CDQAR, QAR, or qualified aircrew
If contaminants are present, retain sample, and drain approx how much fuel into a bucket or other approved container?
1 gallon.
If after draining a gallon of fuel, a second fuel sample still comes forth contaminated, what must be done?
Notify M/C and QA, Initiate a downing discrepancy. Put results on the fuel sample log sheet.
What must be removed prior to A/C wash?
Smokes, to prevent accidental activation
Can you use CPC for beautification purposes?
What is the only authorized cleaning compound?
How long is cleaning solution allowed to remain on aircraft surface?
3-5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly to remove all cleaning solution.
How long should it take to perform a DTA?

How do you check if a Daily Deck or Turnaround card is valid, and up to date?
Check for the CTPL stamp, and ensure applicable IRACs are incorporated.
If a discrepancy is found on a DTA, what will the "when discovered" code be in NALCOMIS?
Daily : J

Turnaround: K
Besides writing the MAF, where else does the discrepancy get logged?
The daily paperwork (4790/38)
