D.1.6) Fuel System

This tool allowed the configuration of valves, pumps and other equipment in the A340-300 fuel system to be demonstrated for each type of fuel transfer and during refuelling. 

The purpose was to augment paper-based training.
  • The user was able to use facsimiles of the cockpit overhead panel and the refueling panel to interact with the system
  • The quantities of fuel in each tank could be adjusted by the user
  • The user was able to fail pumps and valves to show how the system was affected
  • The associated warnings were also shown
