Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) is dispensed from specially designed refuellers, which
are driven up to parked airplanes and helicopters. Major airports have hydrant refuelling
systems that pump the fuel right up to the filling outlets on the tarmac through
underground pipelines for faster refuelling. Essentially, ATF is pumped into an
aircraft by two methods: Overwing and Underwing. Overwing fuelling is used on smaller
planes, helicopters, and piston-engine aircraft and is similar to automobile fuelling
- one or more fuel ports are opened and fuel is pumped in with a conventional pump.
Underwing fuelling, also called single-point is used on larger aircraft.
