NFPA - 407
Standard for Aircraft Fuel Servicing
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This standard applies to the fuel servicing of all types of aircraft using liquid petroleum fuel.
This standard does not apply to any of the following:
(1) In-flight fueling
(2) Fuel servicing of flying boats or amphibious aircraft on water
(3) Draining or filling of aircraft fuel tanks incidental to aircraft fuel system maintenance operations or manufacturing
This document is not intended to be used as the sole standard for design, construction, operation, and maintenance of fuel storage and transfer facilities, as it does not address requirements for environmental protection, fuel quality, or other issues not directly related to fire safety.
The purpose of this standard is to establish reasonable minimum fire safety requirements for procedures, equipment, and installations for the protection of persons, aircraft, and other property during ground fuel servicing of aircraft using liquid petroleum fuels. These requirements are based upon sound engineering principles, test data, and field experience.
The fire hazard properties of aviation fuels vary; however, for the purpose of this standard, the same fire safety precautions are specified for all types.
