dartman2, we are all aware that these new rules prescribe the minimum fuel that must be loaded. In my opinion, these new minimums are just too minimum, and now, a great deal of "learning the hard way" will have to be done by the industry to get us back to the "sensible centre" that we were at, prior to these rules.

This is a great shame. Australia had accumulated almost a hundred years of hard won experience in fuel requirements and fuel management, and CASA is throwing most of that experience away.

Many pilots and operators will mistakenly believe that because these minimums are CASA sanctioned, they must be "safe".
