Starting the APU etc. during refueling

Is starting the APU or changing electrical source during refueling allowable and safe?

Hi Matt,


As far as I know, there are currently no restrictions on APU use/start or electrical switching during refuelling. This is something which was historically restricted.


The company SOPs or local airport rules may, however, prohibit APU use/start during fueling. In EU, I am yet to see such airport. Restrictions are usually related to fueling and boarding.

In the company that I work for, we are not allowed to start the APU while refuelling.
