Abstract

Airplane fuel takes large portion of airline operation cost and recently it has been grown up to about 25% of operating cost. So airlines are making efforts to reduce fuel consumption continuously and also aircraft manufacturers are making efforts to develop less fuel-consuming engines but it takes great expenses and times to develop such engines. In this study, fuel requirements of FAR and JAR, especially contingency fuel requirements, are compared and the effectiveness of each method is analyzed.
