Our client operates helicopters for public safety. They were able to fuel the helicopters from the supplier located in the building next to their hanger. TAIT was asked to assist and expedite a fueling solution to help make helicopter refueling more efficient. The client got approval to put a 1,000 gallon Jet-A trailer on the apron at the hanger.
When the trailer was in place, the training completed and the fueling plan approved, we were able to get our final inspection from the CUPA, fill the trailer with Jet-A fuel and start fueling helicopters. We had to conduct on-site training with each pilot shift which required a training session in the morning and in the evening. We also conducted training for the crew that will be receiving fuel into the trailer and conducting the monthly and quarterly inspections.
