Aircraft that are found to have frost, snow or ice accumulations must be de-iced prior to flight in accordance with the aircraft manufacture’s recommended procedures using industry standard procedures and materials. If existing conditions could cause accumulations to reoccur, the PIC must ensure that the aircraft is deiced as often as necessary based on deicing product specifications and observed conditions. Prior to takeoff, the PIC must determine that there is no accumulation that would affect performance of the aircraft. NBAA Safety Best Practices

Safety Best Practices Manual Flight must not be attempted into known or forecast icing conditions unless the aircraft deicing/anti-icing systems are fully functional. No Company aircraft shall be flown into known severe icing conditions. TOWING All towing operations will be performed in accordance with the methods and limitations described in the appropriate sections of the AFM and maintenance manual. AIRCRAFT REFUELING PROCEDURES The Trip Captain is responsible to ensure that fuel is of the proper grade and quality and that the desired amount is placed into the aircraft fuel tanks. The Trip Captain may delegate the fueling of the aircraft but retains the responsibility. The crewmember should verify that the refueling equipment is labeled with the name of the product ordered (Jet A, Jet B, etc.), and is properly positioned and is not under any part of the aircraft that could settle during refueling. Fuel trucks should not be backed up to the aircraft and should be parked so that the truck could be moved away from the aircraft in case of a malfunction or emergency. Passengers cannot remain onboard the aircraft during refueling unless there is a crewmember present in the cabin and positioned near the cabin door. The main entry door must remain open. No smoking is permitted during refueling. The fuel truck should be bonded to the aircraft structure at the recommended bonding point and the nozzle ground wire attached before any fuel cap is opened or the nozzle is connected to the single-point refueling system. The crewmember should set up the refueling control panel unless the person operating the refueler has been determined by the crew member to be competent. When required by the aircraft type or mission a crewmember shall remain in the vicinity of the aircraft until the refueling has been completed. A flight crewmember shall ensure that the refueling panel and fuel cap(s) are secure and determine that all bonding wires have been disconnected from the aircraft. No fueling will be allowed if a thunderstorm is in the immediate vicinity of the fueling facility. All strobe lights will be turned off and no radio transmissions shall be made during fueling. If there is any question as to the quality of the fuel or fueling equipment being used, the flight crewmember will request that a sample be taken from the final fuel filter of the refueler or from the delivery nozzle being used to refuel the aircraft prior to accepting fuel into the aircraft. Fuel samples should have a clear and bright appearance and have

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
