Aircraft Refueling Procedure Update

Feb 21, 2023

February 21, 2023 – To better serve you, we are continually looking at ways in which we can improve our ground support services.  Safety and efficiency are always our top priorities.  Keeping this in mind, we will be adopting a new procedure regarding aircraft refueling operations on the field.

Effective immediately, aircraft will only be fueled when they are positioned outside of their hangars.  This change will ensure volatile fuel vapors, which flow from filler necks and fuel vents during refueling, have ample opportunity to safely dissipate into the atmosphere without becoming trapped inside of a hangar, and potentially exposed to numerous ignition sources. 

We understand many tenants have electrical accessories for their aircraft, such as Tanis heaters.  The YAO Line Team will ensure we respond to your fuel request as expeditiously as possible.  YAO will not be responsible for the connection of ancillary electrical equipment to your aircraft.
