Fuel Tank Safety (FTS) - Recurrent with VO

Part 145 07


Brochure ButtonThis training is aimed at persons who have already completed initial training in Fuel Tank Safety it is intended to equip you with the necessary understanding regarding all issues associated with Fuel Tank Safety identified by the following documents:

Annex 1 to ED Decision 2009-006-R / Annex to ED Decision 2009-007-R / ANNEX II TO ED DECISION 2022/011/R

The training is designed for both Part M / CAR M and Part 145 / CAR 145 organisations.

The term CDCCL - Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations refers to the design characteristics that have to be retained during maintenance or modification. This means that disturbing systems related to, adjacent to, or having a potential impact on fuel systems identified as being at risk (as identified during the accomplishment of the stipulations of SFAR 88 and related JAR or EASA documents) may be subject to special inspections identified as CDCCL tasks in Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) and in Aircraft Maintenance Programs (AMPs). The term Fuel Tank Safety (FTS) is typically used as it is more accurate with regard to training considerations. SofemaOnline Fuel tank Safety Training includes a full understanding and explanation of CDCCL.


The course is particularly suited to personnel of approved maintenance or CAMO organizations required to plan, perform, supervise, inspect and certify the maintenance of aircraft and fuel system components of applicable aircraft.

AMC M.A.706(f)Personnel requirements
ED Decision 2020/002/R

Additional training in fuel tank safety as well as associated inspection standards and maintenance procedures should be required of CAMO technical personnel, especially the staff involved with the management of CDCCL, Service Bulletin assessment, work planning and maintenance programme management. EASA guidance is provided for training to CAMO personnel in Appendix XII to AMC M.A.706(f) and M.B.102(c).
