f) Provide a distance as great as practically
possible between refueler parking areas and radio transmitting
g) Contact the installation safety office to obtain
distance criteria from aircraft refueler parking areas to
aircraft carrying explosive materials.
Arrangement. The preferred arrangement is parallel
positions, but "front-to-back" and variations of the two are
acceptable. Provide "front-to-back" clearance between
vehicles such that the refueler in the "back" position would
not have to back-up to pull out of the parking position. This
distance will vary according to the turning radius of each
refueler. Arrangement should satisfy functional requirements
of users and provide for safe operation and efficient use of
available space. Provide for parking of all refueling
vehicles expected to use this facility and include
identification of positions.
Ingress/Egress. Provide for "drive-ahead" motion of
vehicles at all stages to avoid backing up vehicles under
normal circumstances. Provide for smooth and efficient
movement from the refueler fill stand area to the parking
positions and from the parking positions to the aircraft
apron. Where necessary, provide adequate markings to ensure
safe and efficient vehicle movements. At a minimum, provide
two means of ingress/egress.
Paving. Use concrete pavement, capable of
withstanding design vehicle wheel loads. Seal joints with
fuel-resistant materials. For circulation pavements, provide
bituminous flexible pavements unless an economic analysis
shows rigid concrete is more cost-effective. Use concrete
pavement in refueler parking areas.
. Provide an impermeable retention and
treatment system. Pave the area with concrete sloped a
minimum of 1 percent toward catch basins or trench drains.
Design containment in accordance with the most stringent of
ICBO UBC 902, BOCA F2315, and state and local regulations.
Provide containment with capacity equal to the larger of the
volume of the largest refueler truck to be parked or the
runoff from a rainfall of intensity equal to a 5-year
