Aircraft Refueling Vehicle Design and Performance Requirements
This document is a guideline for the design and operation of Aviation Aircraft Refueling Vehicles and for the materials, components, and systems used thereon. The criteria set forth herein are the minimum recommendations for all types of aircraft refueling vehicles, including tanker vehicles, hydrant service vehicles, towable hydrant carts, fixed refueling cabinets, and any other type of aircraft refueling vehicles used at airports for aircraft refueling operations with nominal operating fuel pressures and flow rates as specified within this document.
Rationale: This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) has been updated to include changes in the industry that have occurred since the original document was released and to also provide reference, information, and minimum design and operating criteria for all aircraft refueling vehicles, including tankers, hydrant service vehicles, towable hydrant service carts, refueling cabinets, and any other type of aircraft refueling vehicles and equipment used at airports for aircraft refueling operations.
