Academic inconsistencies with Bob Tait terminology in CFPA
Alex Alpine created the topic: Academic inconsistencies with Bob Tait terminology in CFPA
Am confused with question vs answer and contingency fuel. Trip fuel is what contingency fuel is based off says pt 135 definitions. Am I right to say that there are academic inconsistencies in the question versus answer? It does make sense that trip fuel is technically both the search fuel and transit, however it is confusing to be told trip fuel is 35 gallons, then in the answer 35 be referred to as transit only and not entirely trip fuel. Am I correct or missing something here?
CFPA page 105
Question: trip fuel to and from the search area is 35 gal,
Fuel required for the search =90 min at 17.2 gph
= 25.8 gal
Transit fuel = 35 gal (refers to it as trip in question)
Trip fuel required = 60.8 gal
Min fuel required = 60.8 x 1.1+ 15 + 3
= 84.9 gal
