"A320/321 Trapped Fuel"


Recently a crew was issued a Center Fuel Tank MEL with 300 lbs of trapped fuel.

Remember trapped fuel must be accounted for in the AeroData - W&B, but is not usable in flight.

The trapped fuel amount and location must be transmitted to AeroData while sending the TAKEOFF CONDITIONS.

This total will be shown on your dispatch release as BALLAST FUEL.

The  TRAPPED FUEL MEL page is located at:


I hope you find this information helpful.
