    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel! Today's video will all be about the fuel jettison procedure, or better known as "FUEL DUMPING". Why do pilots dump costly fuel overboard, after you´ve just paid for it as a passenger? And what a terrible pollution of the environment! So pilots have to have a good enough reason why they do that?
    As jets began flying with US airlines in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the FAA rule in effect at the time mandated that if the ratio between an aircraft's maximum structural takeoff weight and its maximum structural landing weight was greater than 105%, the aircraft had to have a fuel dump system installed. Aircraft such as the Boeing 707 and 727 and the Douglas DC-8 had fuel dump systems. Any of those aircraft needing to return to a takeoff airport above the maximum landing weight would jettison an amount of fuel sufficient to reduce the aircraft's weight below that maximum landing weight limit and then land.
    And in our case, we have a medical emergency just beyond the coast of Scottland which forces us to land at the next suitable airport, which is Dublin. Then we´ll do the math on how much fuel we actually have to dump in order to safely land at Dublin airport below the maximum landing weight to not damage the airplane.
    We´ll quickly go over the fuel dumping panel and the actual fuel dumping hose of the Boeing 747.
    I hope you enjoy this basic explanation video on the fuel dumping procedure.
    BIG THANK YOU to my fellow subscribers who sent in the subtitles in their language, really appreciate your work!!!
    BIG THANK YOU to the youtubers providing me with their great content, please check out their channels for more great content.

    Of course, 'fuel dumping' is sheer criminal behaviour! Each airport ought to have fuel-collecting planes that would go up to collect superfluous fuel when needed! But, polluting the environment is a lot less expensive!

    None since with all do respect. Since they calculate everything why they don't calculate the weight of the airplane the speed the wind and whatever else. Since we have sensors for everything. How about don't be lazy and use your brain dumping fuel should be for to minimize a bad situation could happen if you have no choices at all. But if you do have a Time to anticipate the situation you shouldn't have any problem with the weight of the airplane

    • A2DJP
      A2DJP 14 hours ago

      Fuel dumping is an emergency procedure. No one intentionally does it, as it costs any airline a lot.
      So if an aircraft is dumping fuel, then it is the most imminent option available

  • Nemo D123

    does any one has statistics of how much fuel all air companies dump in a year in total? Why they not design removable fuel canisters, so they can dumb with parachutes and save fuel.

    • A2DJP
      A2DJP 14 hours ago

      Not practical. It will increase costs and weight. And this weight will increase fuel burn rate. So it'll offset any fuel saved by the mechanism when needed.

    Instead of dumping fuel they should have an unfueling plane fly above/below the plane when they're circling the airport and link up and extract the excess fuel and save that fuel, somehow.

    • A2DJP
      A2DJP 14 hours ago

      Firstly its too ill practical.
      And second, the unfuelling plane is also using its own fuel, so there is hardly any savings.

    What if you're in the middle of Kansas or someplace without an ocean and have to dump fuel? Do they dump it on people's houses? (Obviously, I'm not a pilot.) And what if it happens right after takeoff, do they dump then? I've heard a lot of atc's where the pilot says they have to come right back to the airport for some reason.

      just a really rough mental calculation yeah? say you're flying from san fran to LA. about an hour and 38 minutes at 12 tons p/h and the fuel price is $81 per bbl, (7.33 barrels to a ton) you're using roughly 18 and a bit tons for that flight right. its about $10687 in fuel for that flight. you can carry up to 215 people and its about 135$ per person. you have 6 or so crew members excluding the pilots to pay. this kinda speaks for its self, net amount of money from this flight is 29025$
