🔥Aircraft Fuel Tank🔥


✔️📘✏️An aircraft fuel tank enables fuel to be loaded, stored, managed and delivered to the engines of an aircraft.

✔️📘✏️Fuel tanks differ greatly from aircraft to aircraft due to the relative size and complexity of the aircraft in which they are installed.

✔️📘✏️In the most basic form a fuel system will consist of a single, gravity feed fuel tank with the associated fuel line connecting it to the aircraft engine.

✔️📘✏️In a modern, multi-engine passenger or cargo aircraft, the fuel tanks consist of multiple fuel tanks which are be located in the wing and the fuselage.

✔️📘✏️ Mostly Centre and wing tanks are found on the aircraft.

✔️📘✏️ During operation fuel from the centre tanks are used first and then the fuel from the wings.

✔️📘✏️Fuel flow from the tanks are monitored time to time by the pilot in the cockpit.

✔️📘✏️Each tank will be equiped with internal fuel pumps and have the associated valves and plumbing to feed the engines.

✔️📘✏️Allowing for refueling and defueling, isolate the individual tanks and,allow for fuel dumping.

✔️📘✏️Crossfeeding allows for fuel from one wing tank to be burned by the engine on the other wing by transferring fuel from one wing to the other
