8 November 2018 Fuel requirements
The current Fuel Policy based on CAAP 234-1(1), will be replaced with the new Fuel Requirements contained in CASA 29/18 Civil Aviation (Fuel Requirements) Instrument 2018M and described in the updated CAAP 234-1(2). The new fuel requirements will affect RPL, PPL, CPL exams as well as IREX and PIFR.
