pressure refueling


pressure refueling
The method of refueling an aircraft in which fuel is delivered under the pressure of 50 psi (350 kilopascals) from the refueler through a single point, usually located under the wing. Pressure refueling is much quicker than gravity fueling. The fuel tanks are filled to the desired level according to the sequence selected by the fueling personnel. This method of fueling saves time and effort significantly.
